Hi everyone! Today I wanted to show you some of my favorite beauty products that I have in my vanity that will forever be in my skincare/makeup routine. I honestly think everyone needs these things.

To begin, I HAVE to tell you about the Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara I’ve been using on and off since high school. It’s a little more expensive than some drugstore mascara ($18), but it’s definitely worth it, especially since the tube is HUGE compared with other mascaras so you’re getting your $$ worth in volume too.

The reason I said I use this on and off is that I like to try new things when my old makeup runs out, but this mascara will always be my favorite and I’m for sure going to stick with this brand now because I think I’ve tried enough mascara now to be sure my MK Lash Intensity is the one

Mary Kay has other great products too and I adore their lipstick line. So go check that out now! If you order with this link you’ll be ordering through a super sweet old friend of mine named Shanna. She’s the sweetest girl, a loyal friend, and a great wife and mommy! You’ll love her! And again, I am not getting paid or rewarded for this in any way, I just really love their mascara. 🙂

YSL Lipstick

Another makeup brand that I’m a little obsessed with is YSL, but really I just love their lipstick! It is so soothing, moisturizing, and smells amazing! If you’ve never picked some up, check it out here and grab a few for you and as stocking stuffers for the gal pals in your life. How can you go wrong with a lipstick that guarantees to moisturize your lips? There’s nothing worse than drugstore lipstick that dries out your lips…. then you’re buying more chapstick… so really, you’re saving money by getting a quality lipstick like YSL. 😉

I personally like the color in Rose Sahararienne (and asked for it for Christmas), but literally any of them would be amazing on any of us!

Conair True Glow Cleaning Skin Beauty Treatment

This Conair True Glow Cleaning Skin Beauty Treatment is something I’ve been using for almost a year now and I still recommend it. It uses little movements to loosen and brush out dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria in the pores that cause zits and blackheads. It always leaves my skin looking and feeling radiant. The other thing it does that I like is that it makes my pores less noticeable by cleaning them out. If you look in the mirror really close you’ll probably notice tons of blackheads that you didn’t even know you had and this helps clear those right up.

I like to use this right after a shower (or sometimes while I’m taking a bath) so the steam helps to open up my pores, but they also make a facial steamer that’s just $25.

The reason I recommend this Conair cleansing treatment above other brands is that I own it, it’s more cost effective than the Clairisonic brand, and it works wonders on my skin! I actually have two of these, one is for facials and the other to get rid of dead skin on your feet and I use them both often.

This is an old palette from UIta, but I found a similar one by Makeup Revolution here.

It’s funny– I never used to wear eyeshadow until I realized I could apply it like watercolor! Why? Because I was always annoyed with the “fall” from the eyeshadow and if you get your brush a little wet, you avoid that all together! See a tutorial here.
