Hello TBA readers! (I should add “few” there but maybe one day there will be more of you!)
It’s friday and today I’m sharing my beauty essentials with you. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about beauty and I’m getting real here. I took this picture in my bathroom, no fancy set up here, what you see is the real deal! No props were needed in this photo, no sponsors, no bs. You literally walk in my bathroom and this is what you see! These products are all beauty products that I use on a regular basis, every day and night.
Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder: Back in February, when my Hair Stylist cut my hair and gave me a lob hairstyle, he used this powder on my hair and I was sold on the spot. It gives you volume plus it’s a dry shampoo so it’s a MAJOR plus for me (fun fact: I never liked washing my hair, it’s annoying!)
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: I alternate between this spray and the Bb powder. But this spray gives a nice texture to the hair and volume. After I’ve done my hair, I spray it all over and I have a nice messy wavy hairstyle. Also, it smells really nice.
OUAI Finishing Crème: I apply a little bit from the middle to the end just to tame the frizz. I like it because it’s not too heavy or greasy.
I was on the set of a TV show last fall and while I was getting my makeup done in the makeup trailer, I noticed a bunch of Mario Badescu products right in front me. So, I asked the makeup artist about it since I saw the brand before and was curious about it and after we talked about the products, I was pretty sold on buying them online. And that’s what I did! I use all of them (except the mask) every night before going to sleep. I love how my skin feels after I use the super collagen mask.
Josie Maran Argan Lip Sting Plumping Butter : I just discovered this lip butter and I love it, I apply it all the time and it stings and it feels good because I know it’s working and my lips are more plump. No pain no gain, right? Well, to begin with, I have full lips (#blessed!). No, I didn’t get any lip injection before, I was born like this but full lips do get dry and chapped and it looks ten times better when it’s hydrated and all the lines are filled and plumped. So yeah, i’m going to abuse of this lipstick!
Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color / Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil: I used to be a loyal die-hard lover of the Kylie Cosmetics matte lipsticks until I fell in love with Nudestix. There was no way to reason me into trying another matte lipstick, NO WAY! Until one day, I was standing in front of the Nudestix products at Sephora, curious and maybe open?!? for a change….So I tried the Magnetic Matte lipstick in Rose first and then I needed more and ordered more colors ( Purity and Belle). But my favorites are Rose and Purity, I switch between the two. I like the fact that it’s a pencil and how it doesn’t make my lips too dry.
Have a great weekend xx
