Can't Live Without My...

A quick little Wednesday morning post for you all! I always love seeing what people keep in their bags on a daily basis or can't go a morning without so I figured I would share my few items with you all.

Bumble & Bumble Prêt-à-Powder: Perfect for second day or first day hair. I love using this as both a dry shampoo and a volumizing product. While I have lots of hair, it is still very fine and can fall very flat on the top of my head. I add a bit of this stuff and then voila, instant volume and enough texture to style my hair.

Smith's Rosebud Salve: I keep this by my bedside and apply it nightly. The reason I love this one is because when I wake up I don't feel like my lips are coated in product. It absorbs well and moisturizes. Plus, it smells heavenly.

Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer: Since I have combination skin this product works perfectly for me. Its a non-silcon based product that helps to keep my makeup from falling off right away.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Transparent Powder: While the primer is my go-to base for staying power, this powder is the bit that finishes everything off. I use this sparingly since I like to keep my skin fairly glowy, and apply to my t-zone primarily.

YSL, Touché Éclat: This product is an instant wakeup. I have pretty bad dark circles and the corner of my eye/next to my nose is especially bad. This product is a last little step in the morning that can make a huge difference. Not only do I apply this to my under eye circles but also on my brow bone and cupids bow.

Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner: Are you tired of seeing this one yet? Seriously I don't think anything will sway me from this little guy. This liner has serious staying power, a jet black finish, and makes cat-eyes an easy application.

*Jo Malone, Peony & Blush Suede Fragrance: For the longest time I was a die-hard Chanel wearer. I refused to wear anything but my Chanel, Chance Eau Fraîche. In the past year I've flirted with a few new fragrances but nothing has stuck quite like this one. I've never gotten so many compliments on a fragrance.

What are your go-to, can't live without items?

  1. So I've been hitting up Nordstrom every since I moved to California (from Canada) in February. Every time I go in, I ask for a sample of Peony & Blush Suede. Dude gives me the evil eye every time he sees me, I swear. But I'm on a super strict budget since I don't work at the moment (husband does - the bill payer lol). Isn't it super nice?

    Love the photo! I just went on a following/liking binge on your Instagram. We have a similar style with photographing beauty products I think.

    Anyway, I'll totally be back lol. #ImACreeper.

    1. Haha I love it!! I've been craving the Wood Sage & Sea Salt scent but haven't bit the bullet and bought it yet. Maybe I'll go snag a few samples and hold out a bit longer ;)

      Thanks for your sweet comment!!
