A Few of My Favorite Things....

There are no girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes on my favorites list but they are all pretty special! This is by no means a complete list of all my favorite beauty items but a good place to start. Looking for an opinion on a product? Have a suggestion? Let me know!

High Beam - Benefit Cosmetics


This luminescent complexion enhancer adds satiny pink liquid highlighter accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy, radiant glow. Use as a spot highlighter over makeup or wear under complexion products for subtle luminescence. I use this daily on my cheek bones after applying all my make up. It bring light to your face and helps you look more "fresh". I use this EVERY DAY with or without the rest of my make up. 

Retails for $26.00 (Ulta, Sephora)

Urban Decay - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray


Suffering from makeup meltdown? Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. All Nighter keeps your makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours – without melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines. I didn't believe it but seriously when I use it I don't even have to break out the compact during the day! 

Motives - Eye Shadow


I know every gal lusts after each and every iteration of the Urban Decay Naked shadow pallets that come out...but seriously if you haven's tried Motives you are missing out.  These affordable shadows are the same quality as UD - highlight pigmented, soft, easy to apply and in a great array of color choices.  Make your own pallet and stop carrying around and paying for shades you don't want to use! 

Available online in Motives store

Motives - Liquid Mineral Foundation 

I love this foundation. It's light feeling but has great coverage. You really don't feel like your wearing foundation. And it's mineral foundation so it's better for your skin. Less expensive then Bare Minerals too!


Spice Spray Wax

A few years ago I had a former stylist introduce me to this product. This Japanese based product is amazing. It's a very fine must spray wax. I love it for taming fly always without weighting my style down. It's also great for creating a "piecy" look without being greasy. 

Available select salons and via Amazon


Julep Vanish Cuticle Remover

Best cuticle remover ever! It softens and removes cuticles easily. You can shop sales and promotions from Julep without having to pay full price. Mavens enjoy free shipping!


Zoya Remove+ Polish Remover

What can make a polish remover THE best remover? I really thought they were all the same. I was wrong. In my own trials I compared a number of both acetone and non acetone removers and Zoya stood out above the rest. Not only does it remove polish effectively (even glitter polish!) but it's easy on your nails and cuticles. It nourishes nails and prepares your nails to have the best polish adhesion. It's worth the price just look to use coupons and promo codes to save some money!
PS. the pump dispenser is a must have. 

Online and Ulta Stores


Julep Nail Masks

Cuticles and nails dry from too much remover, weather or travel? Here is your solution! Each packet contains 10 slip-on masks that deliver vitamin E, aloe, collagen, shea butter, and botanical oils to your nail beds and cuticles. Plus, they’re touchscreen-friendly—feel free to text and tweet while you treat. After a day spent at the beach using these was a must for me. 30 minutes and my nails were hydrated and healthy again!

These are on sale right now on Julep for only $10 for 5! I will be stalking up!
