I think having a staple of beauty products that you know work for you, and feed your beauty desires you should stick with them. For me my NEEDS range from skincare – makeup must haves- to things that just make me feel good. Maybe some of my faves could become your faves as well!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, & Green Tea
I used to use the rose petal one but I’ve ended up liking this one more. There is just something about this stuff that makes it almost addicting. I usually spray it on my face right when I wake up in the morning, at night after I wash my face, and anytime throughout the day when I need a little pick me up or I am hot and just need a cool misting. I like to inhale the aroma too, it’s just refreshing!
Vaseline Cocoa Butter Lip Balm
Good lip balm is definitely a need, for all seasons, and every day. Your lips need love too! I have the driest lips ever, it drives me nuts! I pack on this stuff before I put anything else on them, lipstick etc. And at night I load up and put this over them as well to keep moisture locked in overnight when your body gets dehydrated. Besides this one smells like chocolate…need I say more?
Maybelline The Volume Express Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara
I have been swearing by this mascara for years! I have super long eye lashes naturally, very lucky I know. But they aren’t the thickest, so I look for volume. However, I am not a fan of super clumpy lashes, I prefer mine to be thin, volumized, and long. So, if that’s your style, this is the mascara for you! I have tried so many high-end mascaras but always end up going back to the drugstore and buying this kind. Plus, its cheap!!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
If you know me….I always have my brows on point! I have crazy brows as is, so they need a little taming and trimming. They are pretty thick, but there are still a few spots that aren’t as full as I would prefer, so I need a good brow pencil to fill them in to maximum fullness. This pencil is so thin, and the color selections are awesome! I have black hair on my head (I dye it) but my natural color is brown and I like to go in between those two colors and do my brows dark brown. This pencil is perfect for creating almost fake hairs, and the spoolie on the other end is great to brush up the hairs as well for that more natural look.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-cream Extra Dry Skin
Moisturizing your face is absolutely required no matter what type of skin you have, no matter what age. This one has been my favorite for a really long time. It soaks in quickly, and leaves your skin feeling plump and hydrated. It also feels super cold and soothing. I always apply this first on my skin before anything else.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in the Shade Ladyflower
Every girl has their signature lip look, mine happens to be a plumish pink. But not too bright, not too dark, just the perfect pink. This one from Urban Decay I like to keep multiples of in every purse, in my car compartment, and in my bathroom. It isn’t a matte formula which is great if you have lips on the drier side like me. It goes on a little shiny and not too pigmented so it looks more natural. I have tons of different shades from this lipstick line, Urban Decay has such great colors!
Loreal Paris Detox & Brighten Pure-Clay Mask
This is one mask that I like to keep stocked at all times. During the day your skin is exposed to so many different pollutants and other harmful things. They wreck havoc on your skin sometimes without you even noticing. Pollution can age your skin faster. Sometimes it shows up as blackheads, uneven skin tone, dull etc. So it’s important to clear out all that nasty junk out of your skin at least once a week. This mask is great! Every time I use it I notice any blackheads being removed, and an overall brightening to my skin. It feels refreshed and tightened. This one will last you for quite awhile as well, and its not really that expensive to begin with.
