I’ve never been a huge beauty guru until my bestie Brianne became one. She’s always been obsessed with makeup, me with haircare, but both of us skincare, so we balance each other out pretty well. Bri flew out to San Fran and met Brandon and I midway through our trip right before heading to Napa. Of course we had to catch up on our latest and greatest beauty finds. She introduced me to the Caviar Finishing Spray and I’m obsessed. It adds the right amount of dimension, texture, shape and fullness. I’ve been using Kerastase Shampoo and conditioner since last December. I can’t ever see myself using anything different. It’s worth the splurge, people!
Onto skin care. I’ve officially fallen in love with Rodan + Fields skin care. Through my blog and my previous career at a beauty magazine, I’m constantly getting product sent to me from PR companies for me to try. I’ve gotten face moisturizers with 14k pure gold flakes in it, sea salt scrubs from the Mediterranean Sea, $100 dollar single-use face masks, and so many other crazy products over the last 4-5 years. I didn’t really love any of it. The hype was overrated and let me tell you, I’m the biggest pessimist when it comes to people telling me stuff works. Rodan + Fields products started showing up on my Facebook and I figured it was just another network marketing product. As a user of Proactiv for my middle and high school years, I had a certain trust in the product and the doctors behind them so I gave it a try. Best decision I’ve made. This stuff is magic. If you have to start with just one product, I highly recommend the eye cream! Even Brandon and my mom use it and love it. Good skin is so addictive.
I just started using Tarte’s new Maracuja Creaseless Concealer and definitely suggest trying it. It covers so well. It starts out sort of thicken but blends into a really lightweight coverage. I’ve never used anything like it. My Dior Lip Maximizer is a staple. I have one in all of my bags. It’s the perfect gloss by it’s self or topcoat and the plumper is an added bonus. My current mascara must-try is Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara. The brush is big and perfect for layering it on.
Where do I even begin with this stuff. This was clearly a suggestion from Brianne, and I’m so glad she let me try hers in California. Dior’s Airflash Spray Foundation is an innovative mist foundation. The spray application was inspired by airbrushing. The formula covers so well but is so lightweight. I like applying it with a Beautyblender so I feel like I’m not wasting any product when spraying it.
Another current favorite is o.b.® Tampons. This product has their packing down pat! I love beauty products that are small and can be tossed in your purse so they’re always there when you need them. Plus, o.b.® Tampons are so compact that they create less waste! As girls, we all know that every woman’s body is different which is great because O.B Tampons fit every individual’s shape. They stop leaks by expanding all around to fit each unique woman. These are the only tampons with SilkTouch™ cover for ultimate comfort and protection.
