Winter Beauty Essentials – Face & Lips

Can you feel it?? Winter is coming…And I’m not talking about Game of Thrones, although I wish I were. Winter is in the air and the first sign I have is chapped lips and a dried out face. It’s these days where it seems like I can’t get my face moisturizer on fast enough after my showers.

Our face and lips are constantly exposed to the elements almost more than any other part of our bodies. We must care for them daily – especially during dry, cold, windy times. I have scrounged up my favorite 6 essentials for retaining moisture this winter.

Summer Beauty Essentials – Lips

When it comes to the elements, I always think our lips are one of the most delicate features of our bodies. Wind, rain, snow, sun; our lips seem to be the first affected. In the Summer especially, when I’m spending long days in the sun while swimming in pools and the ocean, there’s always a noticeable difference in my lips. These products below have proved to be true heroes in maintaining hydration and soft-ness.  Continue reading

Beauty Must-Haves

Five Essentials.

Essentials. Wardrobe essentials, hair product essentials, kitchen and bedroom essentials…Let’s face it, essentials are essential! Too many essentials? Yeah, I thought so too. Anyway, I definitely keep my must-haves in every area and as I was grabbing one today, I thought I better share these because man, they are crucial keepers.

1. An amazing duo of tweezers that’s sure to get any teeny-tini hairs out.

These tweezers (By Tweezerman) are absolutely so precise and strong. They even come in their own leather-bound case for protection!

2. Bronzer that can double as blush AND a durable soft applicable brush.

I love Laguna Color by Nars as a blush/bronzer combo. It adds just enough shimmer and brownish hue. This brush by Bobby Brown has lasted me well over a year now with multiple washes and uses. I think I have lost a total of three brush hairs over the time I’ve had it.

3. Bobby Pins that will not and pretty much cannot stretch out or lose shape.

I have a lot of thick, curly, hair that has always required thick hair bands and lots and lots of bobby pins. I finally found my saving grace in these bobby pins. I CANNOT even tell you how amazing and strong and oh, SO wonderful they are! Not only do they come in a cute little tin with 300 pins, but they only cost me $5.00 from my local wholesale beauty store!

4. The most amazing, hydrating, refreshing clear lip gloss out there. By C.O. Bigelow.

To keep it short…I thought I lost my lip gloss while on a trip so quickly Bee-Lined to the closest Bath and Body Works to purchase another. While on the trip, I found the one “I lost” in my car and another one in my luggage. Paranoid about having it? Yes. Wonder why? Just buy your own. (I like spearmint and mentha equally!)

Those are my five essentials I definitely use every day! I would be curious and excited to hear what your daily, beauty essentials are! Please share…Happy Hump day folks!
