Origins Checks and Balances
I have combination skin and this cleanser is a perfect fit. I always feel refreshed after every wash. I use it in the morning before going to work and at night before going to bed.
Dove Energize Shampoo
I love the citrus scent, it’s a quick wake-me-up every morning for me.
This is a reliable classic. I’ve been using this for years.
Origins Purifying Tonic
This toner ensures shine control and purifies my pores- first thing I use before moisturizer and make up.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
I use this when I’m in a rush because it’s more spreadable than liquid foundation. It’s best for winter because it works well with dry skin.
Moisturizers: Shisheido Elixir Superior(not in photo) and Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica
I alternate between these two moisturizers and they are both incredible with combating dryness and dullness.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye
It makes my eyes look well-rested.
Anessa Shisheido Sunscreen(not in photo)
I try to apply this religiously because I’ve read so much about the dangers of unprotected sun exposure. I like that it’s light-scented and it brightens up my face.
MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer and MAC Select SPF 15 Foundation
This tandem provides amazing coverage. Both light weight and concentrated. I apply the concealer first then I put on the foundation.
NARS Orgasm Blush
It’s the best combination of peach and pink that flatters my complexion. When I wear it I get the feeling that something fun will happen.
I use this when I want a just-went-to-the-beach golden-brown glow. It’s my summer last layer especially when I miss home.
I rarely wear eyeshadow but when I do—I use this because it blends easily and the colors are gorgeous.
Maybelline Berry Fit Lip gloss
This works for day or night use. If I could carry only one beauty item in my purse it would be this. I like the subtle shine and the shade on my lips.
Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes
It gives my lashes the enough volume and it doesn’t clump. I wear mascara only when I’m going out on the town.
J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream
It’s my perfect go-to hand therapy for cold winter days and nights.
Love Love Love Bath and Body Works Triple Moisture body lotion
I apply this after a bath or a shower and it gives me such a good feeling of being cared for. My skin feels super soft after.
Into the Wild, Bath and Body Works
The scent makes me think of adventures to come.
DKNY Be Delicious
Fruity decadence in a bottle.
Ralph Lauren Big Pony Collection #4
When I ended my affair with Clinique Happy, I was first drawn by the outward appearance of this perfume (I love purple!) then I fell in love with the floral feminine scent. Now I am eternally smitten.
