Here are some of my favorite beauty products that I absolutely love!
1. Theorie Argan OIl Ultimate Reform Shampoo and Conditioner
This is a great shampoo and conditioner for thin, dry and damaged hair. I received a good sized sample set from Folica.com when I ordered some hair tools. If you're like me and have been processing your hair with chemicals for many many years, your hair is probably in need of some TLC products. Both the Theorie shampoo & conditioner are sulfate free and contain argan oil, a natural conditioner. They leave my hair shiny, smooth, tangle-free and voluminous. The scent smells awesome, and I love the easy to use pump-bottle! I've tried other conditioners but this one is the best one I've ever tried to detangle my balayaged hair. The products are pretty concentrated so one bottle will last me a whole year for my shoulder-length hair.
Shampoo available here. Conditioner available here.
2. Nutiva Coconut Oil
This virgin coconut oil is non-GMO and organic! I normally use Perricone M.D. moisturizer, but seemed like they changed their formula and I was wanting to use something else on the fly. I opened up my kitchen cabinet and decided to use this coconut oil as an all-natural anti-aging moisturizer for the face and body. It could also be used as an ingredient for DIY hair masks and brown sugar scrubs. I also use coconut oil for cooking! So versatile! I love it!
Nutiva Coconut Oil comes in many sizes here.
3. Senna Slipcover Palette
For the professional makeup artist! This palette was originally developed to do Bette Midler's makeup in Gypsy, earning artist Eugenia Weston an Emmy. This oil-free foundation palette provides silky, buildable coverage and can be used wet or dry. You can trust this foundation to not break out your clients!
4. RCMA Foundation Palette
This is another pro product that has quickly become an essential in my kit. This palette does not contain mineral oil! I love to use this with a damp sponge or beauty blender on clients. Great for makeup on dudes as well for male grooming.
5. Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan
This over-sized bronzer comes in one universal shade: Tantric 102. The color is mostly matte, but has a slight sheen to it that adds a beautiful healthy glow. It is great for bronzing or contouring the face, and the large pan is also great for bronzing the body. For medium skin tones.
6. The Face Shop Oil Control Water Cushion
This is a BB cushion from the Korean brand The Face Shop. A BB Cushion is a compact that holds liquid product, which makes quick applications and on-the-go touch ups possible. This BB cream is SPF 50 medium to full coverage is sweat and water-resistant. It dries down to a semi-matte finish with a natural sheen. Great for summer!
7. NARS Taj Mahal Blush
This is my all-time favorite blush for women with deep complexions. It is also a beautiful summery color for medium and tan skin tones!
8. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
This is one of my favorite foundation primers! It is a great base to achieve a dewy skin look. Before foundation, I like to apply it everywhere on the face except for the T-zone. I use a mattifying primer on the T-zone instead. The radiance primer can be found here.
