If you’re planning a wedding, I feel you. It’s hard work, and it’s stressful…but, it’s also the most fun thing in the world! I’m planning my own wedding, with the help of amazing family and friends. I have done SO much research about topics from […]
Month: January 2018
If there’s one thing I love, it’s the feeling of a good exfoliator. Maybe it’s just me, but I go crazy over the feeling of using something grainy, and getting out of the shower to have baby-soft skin. Enter, Lush’s scrubee. This little bee-looking butter bar […]
Some things never change, including beauty products. The things I have found that are my all-time favorites are things I use daily, and that I never have the urge to change. I often switch foundations, eye makeup, etc… but, some things are too good to stop using.
That’s what I wanted to talk about today and share with ya’ll– the products I use every single day, ones I KNOW live up to the hype, and I can definitely say I cannot stop using!
Do you have an all-time beauty favorite? Have you tried any of mine? Let me know!
Coty Airspun Translucent Powder
This powder is amazing, and is truly a beauty staple. It’s been around since the beginning of time, and it works better than any product I have ever tried. I reach for it over my Laura Mercier Undereye Brightening Powder! A little goes a long way with this powder— just take a little bit in the cap on a stippling brush and dab it under your eyes, and your concealer is totally set. I like to use a little on my nose, chin, and forehead too to keep the shine away.
Some people are turned off by the smell (its like your grandma, seriously) but I strangely adore it. Also, one jar of this powder will probably last you until you die… so that’s a plus.
Find this in WalMart or drugstores, or order it on Amazon for $6.99
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
Y’all know I am hopelessly addicted to this product. It’s about as full coverage as a concealer can get, minus slapping paint on your face (and there have been days where I wanted to do just that). A little goes a long way, so a few swipes under your eye can brighten your whole face… and your the tube lasts much longer than concealers you have to cake on. This stuff covers all my dark, purple-ish circles, doesn’t noticeably crease, and blends so well. There is literally nothing wrong with it, hence why I’ve used it every day for a year. Why fix what’s not broken, am I right?

Wet n Wild Makeup Brushes
I know I mention these all the time, but they are so good and so affordable! I have all of the Wet n’ Wild brushes that came out a little over a year ago, and I use them all. My face favorites are the small stippling brush and the blush brush; my eye favorites are the crease brush and the large flat brush. These brushes hold their shape— even after washing— and evenly distribute product without being streaky, like a lot of drugstore brushes can be. I will admit to you, I stocked up on these and have several backups in case they ever stop making them…
You can check out the full collection here, but you can find most all of the brushes in drugstores like Walgreens and CVS. And they start at 99 cents!
Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser
I first started using this after I saw it featured on the Today show as one of the oldest beauty products still being sold— and actually still being used by millions. I figured if it’s been around that long, it had to be good… I wasn’t wrong. This cleanser is AMAZING!
In the morning, I wash my face with a scrub. At night I use this to take off my makeup, cleanse, and moisturize my skin. It makes my nighttime routine so much easier by using this one product, instead of reaching for three, and it allows me to hop into bed so much faster! This cream has made a visible difference in the texture and feel of my skin since I started using it— my skin looks so much more hydrated and healthy! Bonus… it’s just about $8 for the big jar.
Try it out and you won’t regret it! Just $7.99 on Amazon Prime!
The Ordinary “Buffet” Multi-Technology Peptide Serum
I was never really into skincare (like I should be) until this product. This changed the game for me! Everything in this beauty line is so affordable, I had a hard time choosing which serum to go with. A super helpful employee at Ricky’s in NYC recommended this one to me, and I’m hooked!
Named the “buffet” because it’s got a little of everything, this little guy contains 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple hyaluronic acid complexes. Its perfect for a skincare newbie, and gets you a head start on anti-aging, too! Since I started using this, my skin has been so much more even, my pores a little smaller, and overall tighter. Must have!
