Have you ever gone to buy a beauty product that you are happy with but get talked into buying something else only to think “why did I let that salesperson do to that to me?” Well, below are Beauty Products That Really Work!
That is not to say I don’t like new recommendations!!! In fact, in this latest Project Design (except this isn’t really about design), we asked these beautiful bloggers about products that really work for them: Annie, Most Lovely Things, Brenda, Brenda Kinsel, Cindy, Rough Luxe Lifestyle and Kristy & Beth, Design Chic.
So, be sure to click on their links at the end of the post.
I only like to spend about six minutes on make-up in the morning! These are my essentials for every day. 1. Tinted Moisturizer This evens out skin tone and has SPF. 2.Weightless Foundation Powder Great for your nose and covering any spots (yeah like age spots). 3. Retouching Wand I LOVE this and use it as all around eye concealer especially if the lower rims of my eyes are red. I tried to buy it recently at Sephora and they don’t carry it anymore! But you can get it with my link at Macy’s. 4. Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil Something about the angle makes it so easy to quickly apply! And you don’t have to sharpen it. I will not let a salesperson talk me out of this one again! 5. Benefit Bad Girl Mascara This really is awesome mascara! Buy the travel size just to see if you don’t believe me 🙂 I just use it on my top lashes. 6. 24 Hour Super Stay Lip Color I keep coming back to this drugstore brand since it works (we lose lip pigment as we age–so this is important even if you don’t wear any other makeup). I like medium pinky-peach-rose colors with my skin tone. 7. Two Faced Natural Bronzer I use this in place of blush…a little on the forehead, cheeks, and jawline will wake up your face! 8. Maybelline Matte Lipstick This is in my purse for a quick touch-up.
Basically, at my age, my skin needs to be exfoliated and hydrated well (for a bit of a glow)…that’s the best blank slate before any of the above makeup.
1. Caudalíe Rich Face Cream A friend that was with us on our recent trip to Provence said you could get this brand in the pharmacies in France (so I purchased this for less there and am glad I did). But you can get it here too. I use this at night…feels great. 2. Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil I had a facial in Phoenix, Arizona and it’s so dry there! The technician recommended this oil and I like it…it seeps right in in the morning and if I have any left on my hands, I smooth it on my hair (two for one 🙂 3. Daily Moisturizer With SPF…my husband and I both use this. 4. Clarisonic Mia 1 I keep this in the shower to regularly wash/exfoliate my face. 5. Healing Lotion with Vitamins Works great, especially on feet and hands.
5. Bond Street Washington Square Perfume A gift from my husband. I LOVE it but it just keeps going up in price so I save it for special occasions like a date night.
That’s all the Beauty Products That Really Work for me! Can’t WAIT to read what these other influential ladies recommend.
