We all have our own favorites when it comes to basic beauty products – mascara, lip color, hair care, etc. But then there are ones that I personally never even knew I needed until I actually tried them. It’s those products that once you have them, you know you can never live without. So here are my five beauty products that I think every girl should have.
1. big sexy hair powder play.
I haven’t tried a BSH product that I didn’t love, but Powder Play was the real game-changer for me. It’s a volumizing and texturizing powder that you apply to your roots (when hair is dry) and it instantly gives you that “just-teased” look. It also adds texture so you can kind of tossle your hair however you want and it won’t automatically fall flat.
2. a makeup base.
I’ve always kept things as simple as possible when it comes to my makeup routine. Up until recently, I didn’t even know what a makeup primer or base was. But once I started using a makeup base, I really noticed how much longer my makeup stayed on and continued looking fresh – Iike I had just applied it. I’ve been using Loreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base (but am open to suggestions if you have one you swear by!).
3. ped egg.
Whether you need a pick-me-up in between pedicures or just don’t like getting pedis all together, Ped Egg is the perfect way to get those baby soft feet in just a few minutes. One side of it scrapes off dead skin and the other side buffs it (sounds hot doesn’t it?). I mean, let’s be real, no matter how much you might walk in a day, there’s no excuse for having callused alligator feet.
4. a rollerball fragrance.
Since I was 13 and still to today, Armani Emporio is my fragrance of choice. But, as of last month, I welcomed a new scent into my life in the form of a rollerball. Carrying around a rollerball fragrance comes in handy for those long days where your regular perfume may have worn off. Just a small roll on your neck and wrist can help freshen up for the evening/night ahead, and it can easily be thrown in your purse. I’ve been using Boyfriend by Kate Walsh, and you can find a large selection at Sephora.
5. jergens natural glow.
I’ve sworn by this product for 5(+) years now. While St. Tropez is more effective as a sunless tanner, Jergens is much more natural, gradual, and actually moisturizes your skin. So even if you’re not going for the “hey everyone I have a tan!” look, Jergens will give you a subtle glow that I think looks good on everyone. I use Jergens after every other shower (alternating regular lotion the other times), and it helps my skin maintain a naturally-sunned shade.
