1. Mac Blot Powder Pressed
I won’t leave my house without it. Call me crazy but I’ve gone back home for my powder several times after forgetting it! I’ve been using this one religiously for years. I’m sure by now there’s probably a better brand or version but hey I’m happy with it. I have naturally oily skin and even though I use a matte foundation I still get shiny after a few hours. I use it throughout the day to keep my makeup looking fresh. The best part is it doesn’t feel cakey and I don’t need to use much. Simply apply to forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. I use the medium dark tone.
2. Nippies Skin Covers
I’m not a fan of wearing a bra. It makes feel uncomfortable and annoyed when I have to but thankfully I’ve found a good pair of nipple covers. I’ve been using this brand for several years and wear them every day. I love the large shape circle for more coverage and they stay on ALL day even when I’m sweaty from working out. I can wear a white shirt and you don’t even notice them. I get the medium shade and buy a new pair every 3-4 months. These changed my life!
3. Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo
I’ve always been a fan of dry shampoo. It’s hard to keep your hair clean when you workout 4-5 times per week. I’ve tried others but this one is by far my favorite. It allows me to wash my hair every other day while providing enough volume to keep it looking fuller throughout the day. Simply spray it on your roots, let it dry without touching your hair, and blow dry or style with a curling iron.
4. Makeup Eraser
For years I used the Neutrogena makeup remover until one day I was in line at Sephora and saw the Make Up Eraser. I said to myself “what’s so special about this towel?” Can it really remove my makeup? There was only one way to find out so I bought one. Since that day I haven’t used another wipe. It removes all the makeup with just water and is really gentle on my face. This cloth is amaaaazing and one towel can last for months!
5. Caudalie Hand Cream
I use this lotion on my hands every day! It’s great for dry sensitive skin. My hands get so dry and this lotion keeps them moisturized and smooth throughout the day without looking oily. We all have to pay extra special attention to our hands as they age much faster than other body parts due to how much we use them. Plus the constant washing with soap strips your hands of its natural oils. Apply a high-quality lotion with moisturizing benefits 2-3 times per day to keep your hands looking young for years to come.
