L'oreal Elnett Hairspray
When you have naturally unruly hair and you want to try and keep it under control, you rely on hairspray. I think I read about this in one of those Allure Magazine “best of” issues. It really holds well and doesn’t look or feel crunchy.
EltaMD Moisturizer with Sunscreen
To really protect your skin from the sun (so my dermatologist tells me), you have to use a sunscreen with zinc. Problem is, zinc smells funny and leaves white streaks, except for this one.
Chanel Le Volume mascara
I always subscribed to the idea that drugstore brands were just as good as department store brands, with less fancy packaging. Trying this mascara (because of a sample in a blogger goodie bag) proved me wrong. It really does make my lashes look longer and fuller and every other cliche. It’s crazy.
Make Up For Ever
When having new photos shot for my website earlier this year, my photographer gently suggested that I might want to wear some real makeup. I had previously just used drugstore coverup every once in awhile. I went to Sephora and had my skin tone matched to a Make Up For Ever foundation. It’s lightweight, easy to blend, and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing heavy foundation.
Suave Dry Shampoo
I know there are fancy dry shampoos, but I decided to try this one a few years back and haven’t felt a need for anything else. Maybe I’m wrong, like in the case of the mascara! I hate how long it takes to shower and get ready, so I try to only shower every other day. On off days, I spray this into the areas of my scalp that get oily and then refresh with a quick blow dry.
