1. Drying Lotion – My favorite spot treatment, it dries my acne out within a night.
2. Facial Spray – This spray is a GAME CHANGER, it is my most recent Mario Badescu purchase and I use it after I wash my face, and I also use it to set my make up. It contains Rosewater – which is super healthy for your skin, and this is why this spray is better for your face than a normal setting spray.
3. Enzyme Cleansing Gel – Another game changer. I have sensitive skin so this was the perfect gentle cleanser that helps prevent any build up.
I just recently learned how to contour – thanks to my friend Beth. It is a process that’s for sure, but once you have the process down and how you like your face to look, it becomes a natural daily routine. As a “beginner” I bought the Lorac Pro Contour Palette and am obsessed!
I have used this “Hello Flawless” Oxygen Wow Foundation from Benefit since my Junior year in High School – so for almost 4 years now. It is lightweight and perfect for anyone with oily skin.
ELF Baked Blush – ONLY $3! It is my favorite blush.
Maybelline Fit Me Shine Foundation Stick – Although this is technically a foundation, I use it after I apply my foundation as more of a concealer. Because I have oily skin, this shine free stick blends great with my foundation.
Erase Paste Brightening Concealer – This is another product from Benefit that I have used since my Junior year of High School. Another game changer for sure. Perfect for under eye circles.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – I usually feel the need to layer my mascaras for a really full fan effect, but I don’t with this one! AND it’s only $8.99! Extremely reasonable price for such a high quality mascara.
Sephora 42 Pro Small Stippling Brush
Urban Decay Primer Potion – On sale for only $10 right now!
Self Tanning & Moisturizing
I have never tanned in a tanning bed or been one to get a lot of color by laying out, so I’ve always resorted to self tanners or spray tans. Being in college, spray tans can get a bit pricey to keep up with regularly..I’ve used Jergens Natural Glow on and off for years, it’s reasonably priced and you can get it anywhere. The only thing with the lotion is that it is a bit time consuming to do every night before bed, especially because I usually have early classes each morning during the school year.
So – instead of paying $20-$30 every week or two for a spray tan, I resorted to purchasing Versa Spa Bronzing Mist – It is literally giving yourself a spray tan, and you can use it anytime, and it doesn’t get on your hands. It goes on great and does not have a strong smell either. I love it!
When it comes to self tanning – moisturizing is a must in order to get that perfect even tan that glows. Not only do I exfoliate with Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs (Only $7 at Ulta!) but I moisturize with my all time favorite lotion – Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer
Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Smoothing Serum – Seriously makes my hair SO smooth!
