I’m pretty basic when it comes to a beauty care routine. I actually rarely put on makeup-I’ve been a roll out of bed, natural hair, natural face kinda gal.
However, that does not mean I do not care about my appearance, I just live my life with little to no makeup.
I remember being in 7th grade when I wanted to start experimenting with makeup. My mom advised me that makeup should accentuate your natural beauty, not cover up your face.
Truth is, I suck at makeup and nails. I wish I had the gift of flawless makeup and nails, but alas, I do not.
My level of makeup is very limited, so if I do wear makeup, I typically focus on eyebrows, eyelashes, and/or lips.
Skincare is important to me, as glowing, healthy skin is always the goal.
I prefer using products that are on the less expensive side. There are some amazing makeup and skincare products that do wonders for you at a fraction of the cost.
Here Are 15 of My Most Used Beauty Products:
I normally would get my eyebrows threaded, but it is so incredibly painful for me. Although I had been getting them done for the past 10 years, my eyes would water every single time. I discovered Flawless brows and it is so easy to keep my eyebrows under control, and the best part is it is painless! I will say there is some manual work needed to pluck the stubborn hairs out with tweezers, but other than that, I love using it! Plus it is discreet too-looks like a bottle of mascara.
Do you have the “sisters not twins” situation going on with your eyebrows? Girl, you aren’t alone. My right eyebrow is more sparse than my left, and I wanted to have them look more full and even for the wedding. I read the reviews on Amazon about RapidBrow and gave it a shot. The results are amazing. I couldn’t believe how they thickened my eyebrows. I’d get lots of compliments from others about them. Results are typically noticed in 60 days, so it does take consistent use twice a day to gain thicker brows.
I have been an avid coffee drinker since high school, and my teeth were stained because of it. I’ve always used Crest white strips, but my teeth have always been sensitive, and I think using white strips didn’t help with my teeth sensitivity. I like these pens because they provide a nice touch-up job for when you need to brighten your smile. Plus they are way cheaper than buying the strips. Although, I think my success was due to years of whitening my teeth, as my teeth aren’t terribly stained.
Speaking of coffee, this collagen powder is great mixed into my morning cup of joe. I barely notice the taste, and I am getting the benefits from collagen in my diet. Our bodies naturally produce collagen and it’s basically the glue that keeps our bodies together. This brand contains 5 different types of collagen: I, II, III, V and X. Long story short, these types of collagen keeps skin plump, boosts the immune system, supports joints, makes up 90% of our hair, skin and nails, and helps bone formation.
Who doesn’t want strong hair, skin, and nails? I love these little pink pills because, on top of biotin, it has argan oil, collagen, and coconut oil. This is a great vitamin as it also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Niacin, and Folate.
When I have a bad face day, thanks to some unwelcome acne visitors, I like having a light cover up on my face. When my acne was at its worst, I used bareMinerals powder but at $32, it was a bit too pricy for me to continue buying it. Like its competition, Physicians Formula mineral powder also contains Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide, and it says it may contain Mica and Iron Oxide. This also provides a light SPF.
I love the look of red or pink lipstick but most times, it ends up on my teeth. Its probably just my lack of skill, but lipstick will not stay on my lips! This liquid lipstick has a matte finish and stays on my lips, even through eating. I don’t have to touch up throughout the day..except for the time I forgot I was wearing lipstick and was resting my hand on my lips at work..then a trip to the bathroom I realized I had turned into the Joker. LOL.
This cute little eyeshadow palette is perfect for me, as I have brown eyes and I only wear neutral colors. I use the lightest shade to highlight right under my eyebrows, then pick light and dark brown shades to blend on my eyelids. It lasts all day, and has a beautiful shimmer that will make your eyes look stunning.
This product is mostly for hair, but on the bottle it says its for skin too. I love how it feels on my face-lightweight and not greasy. If you want something luxurious on your skin, silk is the way to go! If you are wanting to add shine to your hair, just put a dime-size amount and work through your ends and middle sections of your hair. I also recommend Biosilk Silk Therapy Lite. I like the smell better and it is a lighter version of the original. Both are amazing-try out both!
This electric toothbrush changed the way I brush my teeth! It literally sounds like a car engine when I turn it on. It is a high powered toothbrush and really makes you feel like you visited the dentist after each use. My dentist was pleased to hear I am brushing with this type of toothbrush as it removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush. It also reduces gingivitis and improves gum/oral health overall.
I had braces as a kid, and used the dreaded Waterpik. I say dreaded because it was this little square-shaped machine that I had to assemble every time I used it. On top of that, our bathroom was built in the dark ages and did not have any outlets, so every time I used my Waterpik, I had to plug in the cord to an extension cord from my bedroom. I am not a fan of flossing, so I much rather use a water flosser. I found this cordless, portable one which is perfect for travel. I love that it has a small container for the water.
Almond oil can be used in cooking but it is incredible for your face, hair, skin, and nails! Almond oil moisturizes dry skin, improves acne, reverses sun damage, helps with stretch marks and scars, conditions hair, helps babies with eczema, and helps strengthen nails. I prefer using almond oil to moisturize my skin than lotions because most lotions are either water-based or alcohol-based which evaporate, but oil absorbs into the skin, lasting longer.
- Timeless Skin Care Hyaluronic Acid (my brand currently unavailable)
Don’t let the word acid scare you-hyaluronic acid is extremely moisturizing and it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I like using it on my face because it is very light, and I like that it retains moisture. Hyaluronic acid will help the skin’s aging process.
I have been using waterproof mascara by L’Oreal Paris since high school. I need a mascara that will stay on all day and not smear. I have even worn this in the ocean and came out without runny mascara! This mascara also goes on pretty smooth with fewer clumps.
This serum is literally liquid gold. It has a light and fresh feel to it. You know how I love collagen-it plumps your skin and keeps it youthful! The main ingredients are vegan collagen to restore elasticity, 24 karat gold to enhance the skin’s complexion, glycerin to moisturize, vitamin b3 to brighten your face, and natural polymers to protect your skin.
