beauty essentials.

I don’t talk much about beauty on my blog because to be honest, clothes have always been more my thing. I really suck at hair. Probably because I’m impatient. I need to work on that 🙂 My mom and sister can attest to this.

In regards to beauty, I typically find something I like and really stick to it. I wanted to share my 5 tried and true beauty favorites.

1. Mia Clarisonic in Pink {obvi} – I try to use this at least 4-5 times a week.

I use the skincare line Obaji {and have since before our wedding}. Check out their site for full details before trying this but it really did wonders for evening out my skin’s pigmentation.

Whenever I use the Clarisonic brush I use Obaji foaming gel {or I use it on it’s own}. I like the Clarisonic sensitive brush heads {here}.

2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. I go for the oil free version. I’ve used this for 5+ years and put it on as the first base after my Obaji routine & before Bare Minerals Foundation. HIGHLY recommend.

3. Joie Perfume. Obsessed with this scent.

Also comes in a gift set with hand cream here.

I got this perfume for Christmas last year after I had walked in to the Joie Greenwich store & it smelled of heaven. I have to buy a new one because I just ran out {yes, it lasted me almost a full year}. I’ve had random people out and about ask me what I was wearing. Trust me it’s a good one. I’m picky with perfume 🙂

4. Too Faced Brow Envy Brow Kit. My sister and I both have this. Not sure how I ever did my makeup / brows without it. I don’t use the stencils {I’m sure they’re great} but love that it has blonde and brunette brow colors to mix + a brow brush + mini tweezers.

5. And finally this 1 minute flash rinse facial from REN.

My mom has this and I always looked forward to coming home to use it so I bit the bullet and got it for myself. You are only supposed to use it once or twice a week but it smells so fresh & leaves your skin feeling so soft.

Cheers! xx
