My Top 5 Beauty Faves

On most days, my self-routine doesn’t include many steps or products. My days are pretty predictable and we are usually on-the-go, so in order for me to look somewhat put together, I need things that are simple and time-savvy.

So, today I thought I would share my top five beauty faves!

Lipsense- lip color

I am new to the Lipsense world and was recently introduced to it by my friend, Kelly.  This stuff is all about long-lasting color that will NOT smudge. No color coming off on your teeth or glass. It just won’t happen! I’m not much of a bold color-wearing girl myself (wish I could pull it off) but I do love a good neutral color. Kelly introduced me to the perfect neutral with a nice hint of pink, which makes me feel like I am a little more put-together.

With time, it will wear off ( don’t you fret) but it is waterproof and smudge-proof, so it’s perfect for those upcoming summer swim days. I also tried Bombshell, which has a bit of a peachy tint, and I think it looks fabulous on anyone with any sort of an olive tone or on someone with a tan. I can’t wait for summer!

If interested in giving this a try, contact my sweet friend, Kelly, HERE. AND, if you join Kelly HERE and HERE, you get 10% off your first order! PLUS, 100% of the proceeds are being donated to a family adopting a little girl in China with the needs of Down Syndrome.  I just love that!

She will get you hooked up and be able to answer any questions. Plus, with a 100% money-back guarantee, there’s nothing to lose!

 Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

I cannot stand the feeling of makeup caked on my face but do appreciate a good tinted moisturizer that evens things out a bit, but still feels light. My friend, Amber, recommended Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, and I am a fan! I’ve been using the Oil Free version for a while now and really like how it looks.

Lash Boostfor lashes and brows 

My lashes were pretty much non-existent before I started using Lash Boost. I’m talking little lash nubs. A complete skeptic, I waited until I saw it working on others before I decided it was worth a try myself. Prior, I was considering trying lash extensions but since their cost was about the same,  I figured it couldn’t hurt to try this first. And by golly, the stuff actually really works. LOVE when that happens! I actually have long lashes now. It worked so well, that I bought another tube of the stuff and have started using it on my brows, too! And yes, I am starting to notice a difference! So that’s fun. Want to try it? Let me know.



Dry Shampoo I wash my hair about twice per week, and that’s with working out, so I need something to keep me from looking like a complete grease ball. I have been using Perfect Hair Day by Living Proof for a while now and like it, but my friend, Jeri, recently recommended Detox by Drybar, so I ordered a bottle and am excited to try it out!

Lululemon Leggings –  I am usually a TJMaxx leggings girl, that is until I went shopping with some girlfriends and tried on the All the Right Places leggings by Lululemon. Girls. These are THE leggings that will leave you feeling 10 pounds lighter. They are SO flattering, feel so incredibly smooth, and can be worn high-waisted to tuck in the tummy, or rolled down if you prefer that feel/look. These can be worn with a tunic or to workout in. And, they have two super handy side pockets that I can slide my phone into when needed, too. They’re fab!



And there you have it! With these five tips, my face, hair, and wardrobe are pretty much covered daily!


  1. I’m still search for the perfect dry shampoo!

  2. I keep hearing about some new Lulu leggings that are “like butter,” I wonder if those are the ones? I haven’t splurged on any lulu lately, but it may be time again. 😉

    • I think these are the ones, Katie! THEY ARE LIKE BUTTER! I rarely splurge on Lulu, but these just HAD to come home with me.

  3. That lipsticks sounds awesome! I love the idea of smudge proof and water proof… will have to give it a try!!

  20. Kelsey says:

    Great picks, and I’m loving your shirt. Any details?

  21. Gotta have a good pair of leggings to get you through the day! Haven’t heard of some of these products so will check them out!

  22. These are great tips. I heard about lipsense but just never tried it. I might check this out.

  23. Great choices. I like that you mixed it up and it was not all makeup.

  24. I love the idea of a lipstick that’s not only long-lasting but won’t smudge! The beautiful neutral color you’re wearing is perfect for day and night. Thank you so much for the introduction to Lash Boost! I’ve been thinking about trying out the fake eyelash trend, but if this product can produce gorgeous lashes like your photos show, then that’s a much preferable solution for me too. :-)

  25. I ordered Lipsense for my wedding and it was the best decision I made. I am so obsessed with the quality of the product!
