Beauty Product Line-Up

My knowledge of beauty products is very limited.  If I could go without make-up during the day, I totally would. However, I'd look half-asleep! I usually go for the natural lip color look with Nivea lip moisturizer, but my mom preaches to me that I look so much better with some color on my lips.  It all comes back around to me not knowing much about make-up or wanting to take the time to apply it all.  Let's face it~ I run late to everything! So, when it comes time to put on make-up, there is none left. I have about 5 seconds to pull some magic!

I love it when bloggers share their beauty regime.  I get to learn about different products to try without looking completely clueless when I approach the make-up counter or walk into my favorite drugstore. If it works and is quick/easy, I'll take it! 

So, here's a peek into my daily beauty routine. 
After trying out many of those recommended products, 
here is what I use as I begin and end each day.

Lumene Pure Radiance Creme:  I begin my day with this daily moisturizer. The hint of sunscreen makes me feel protected. 
Clean & Clear On the Spot:  When the unexpected yuckiness appears on my face, this helps limit it's stay.
Aveeno Skin Brightening Face Wash: Absolutely love the feel and smell of this cleanser.
Nivea Mint Lip Moisturizer:  Love this stuff! It's so smooth without feeling heavy on my lips.
Olay Professional Facial Brush: I opted for this cheaper avenue over the Clarisonic Mia.  The Olay's brushes move in a circular motion versus the vibrations of the Mia.  So far, I love it! It definitely makes my face feel fresh and clean. 
Clinique Dramatically Different Face Moisturizer:  I use this facial lotion before going to bed.  It's not too heavy and oily, like other facial lotions I've tried. 

About a year ago, I decided to give my hair a transformation.  I wanted to grow out my stacked bob and correct years of highlighting damage.  I found a new stylist and she has guided me through the frustrating process.
L'Oreal Professional Shampoo, Conditioner, and Repairing Spray:  This has literally changed the look and feel of my hair.
Moroccan Oil:  I have thick hair, so this helps me manage my hair and limit my flyaways.

Finishing Touches:
MAC Studio Fix: I've used this lightweight powder plus foundation for forever.  It's a great all-in-one!
MAC Powder Blush:  Adds a nice "kissed" touch to your cheeks!
MAC Viva Glam Lipgloss:  A great gloss for adding a hint of color and shine.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara {brownish-black}:  This mascara opens up my eye minus the annoying clumpiness.
Burberry London Perfume:  I absolutely LOVE this light and fresh smelling perfume. It's been on repeat for years!
JCrew Receipt Pouch: I had to buy this as soon as I saw it.  It's slim and perfect for my purse.


I'd love to hear more about your favorite products that you'd recommend!
