SEVEN Beauty Products Every Beauty Lover Should Own!

As a beauty lover who is always on the go, whether on my way to class or work, there are SEVEN products i just cannot seem to live without. The products I will be showing you lovelies are products that help me get a kick start on my tired face in the morning and also help me on those long 10+ hour days!

Glide through the day, sprinkling confidence with these essentials:

1. The Face Cleanser:
What a better way to wake your skin up than with a nice citrus-y face cleanser! I personally have been loving the Ginzing Scrub by Origins. It not only purifies my face every morning but it exfoliates my skin and preps it for a smoother makeup application! The GinZing Cleanser can be found on, you can also ask for a free sample at Sephora locations. 

2. The Moisturizer: 
Keeping your skin on point and hydrated should always be a priority, that is why I make sure to moisturize every single day after showering. My skin has been on a wild ride lately, going from oily to just completely dry. I recently had to change my routine and I am loving the Ponds skincare products. I recently took a little stroll into my mother's beauty space and snatched her Ponds Rejuveness Anti- Wrinkle Cream. Yes, I do not have any.. YET. However, my skin was so dry and dull lately nothing seemed to work and this has been doing wonders for my skin, my makeup goes on so smoothly! Also, let me mention my skin was so dry it physically hurt everyday and only this seemed to work. I have also been hearing great things about the Kiehl's brand, might check that out! Of course, use a moisturizer that best suits your skin.

3. The Concealer:
THIS is just a life long necessity, especially for the hard working and restless babes out there! Find a concealer that works for you to hide all those measly dark circles and remember to set it so it lasts all day! I personally have been jumping from my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Macadamia & Ginger) and Tarte's Shape Tape (shade light medium). Both of these can be find at Sephora, Online and the shape tape can be found on both and also at Ulta!

4.The Go-to Lipstick/Balm:
As a busy babe myself, I tend to do most things while out the door or in my car. I always carry in my purse a nude/pinkish lipstick. Lately, I have run out of my favorite Velvet Teddy by MAC Cosmetics, but have found many affordable dupes! I feel as if nudes are not only neutral but go with every look. It does not hurt to also have a colored lipstick, perhaps a red or pink toned? I have been loving my NYX Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt for everyday use and sometimes add some balm before applying it. For the win the balm I have been using and heard Beyoncé uses is the Smith's Rosebud Salve. It has a multipurpose, it can be used to tame eyebrows, prime lashes, as a "blush" and of course for your lips!

5. The Brows:
I am a firm believer that eyebrows do complete the look. I love brows and I live for them! This is usually what takes the longest in my routine but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am a Anastasia Beverly Hills girl, though I have been kind of curious to try benefits new products! I typically use their dip-brow pomade in the shade medium brown and when I really do not have time and want a rather light but firm/natural brow use my brow wiz!

6. Mascara:
I love eyelashes and wish I had beautiful long ones like @iluvsarahii on Instagram! Since I do not, I either wear lashes or my holy grail mascara by Maybelline called Lash Sensational (you can shop the mentioned items on this post down below, btw). This is the first mascara that does not flake on me or produce little to none volume on my lashes. It is truly a master piece! Give it a try! I usually pick mine up at my local Walgreens, Target or Ulta. It is one of the best drugstore mascara's in the game!

7. The Oil Control Police
Throughout the day I tend to get oily in my t-zone area. I tend to always carry around a little package of oil strips. Oil strips help in absorbing all that shine that is produced when you are a totally busy babe! I tend to purchase the NYX Blotting Papers which can be found at any Target or Ulta. I also tend to purchase the E.l.f (eyes, lips, face) Blotting Papers

Side note: I was recently watching one of Manny Mua's videos on Youtube and learned some very interesting and new. Whenever you run out of OR don't own any oil blotting strips, those toilet seat covers in public bathrooms work just as good as those I mentioned above. I have actually tried this little hack and it works! 

Thank you for reading about my faves! I'd love to hear about your faves! Do you have any alternatives? Let me know!
