1.) Sephora Blush Me! Just perfect to get a little bit of pink on your cheeks. Especially helps if you’re as pale as I am!
2.) Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener If you have problems with dark circles, which constantly make you look more tired than you actually are, try this! It has a nice cooling effect when you put it on and it instantly brightens up your under-eye skin.
3.) Oscar Biandi Pronto Dry Shampoo I have to admit to greasy roots, which especially sucks if the rest of your hair is fairly dry and needs lots of moisturizing. Therefore, washing your day every day is not really an option, even though I still do on occasion. I found that dry shampoo really works for me to stretch an extra day until the next hair wash.
4.) Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray This girl – on top of the greasy roots – also has very thin, fine hair which means I am constantly looking for products that make my hair look more voluminous and full. B&B Thickening Spray was recommended by my hair dresser. It’s a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way and I like it, because it’s light-weight and smells good. Double win!
5.) Too Faced Shadow Insurance To be honest, I’d never thought in a million years that this product would really make a difference, but surprise!, it does! It really does.
J got this for me for Christmas (along with a bunch of other beauty products) and I suspect that he was conned into buying it by the shop assistant – but in this case, I guess it was a good thing. As advertised on the website, “this is your full-coverage insurance policy against all fading, creasing, melting, blurring, oil slicked, and hard-to-blend eyeshadow accidents. [This] silicone based eyeshadow primer transforms any eyeshadow into a perfectly blendable, color-drenched, intensified version of itself, then locks it down perfectly until you take it off.” Awesome.
6.) Bare Minerals Foundation I still can’t get enough of the bare minerals products. I’ve heard that opinions differ about those products (some swear by it, others get break outs from it), but I have to say that my skin really likes this light-weight foundation coverage. And did anyone notice that they finally came up with a better lid and dispenser closure, so you can throw it in your beauty bag without worrying all the content being emptied out into the lid?
