What can I say—I’m a makeup and hair product fanatic! With all of the items stored under my bathroom sink, in the drawers, on the counter, and in the spare bathrooms, I think that I could probably open up my own Ulta or Sephora store. Now that I really sit down and think about it, maybe I could say that I’m somewhat of a makeup hoarder. I love trying new colors, different brands, fun products, etc. which is why I have such a massive collection of beauty items. With that being said, over the years I’ve managed to come across some products that I think every girl (and mom) should not live without. Here’s what I’ve discovered:
Dry-Shampoo – For moms on the go, this is a dream come true! Don’t have time to fully wash, dry, and style your hair? Spray this on your roots, let sit for a couple of minutes, brush out and then style. Klorane ECO Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk $18.00
Long-Wear Lipstick – I really dislike applying lipstick in the morning to only have it MIA by the time I get to work, which is why I’m now in love with Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick ($9). It stays put and smells good too!
Cheek Stain – This rose-tinted stain creates a natural flush without caking to your face. Use on the apples of your cheeks or mix with a sheer lip balm for instance lip color! Benetint by Benefit Cosmetics ($29.00 for full-size or $20 for pocket-size)
Waterproof Mascara – When taking my little one for a dip in the pool it is not uncommon to get splashed in the face. For me, it is critical to have mascara that can withstand squirt guns, tidal waves, and the occasional cannon ball. Secret weapon? CoverGirl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara ($8).
