Beauty Essentials

As I’ve said before, I am a self-confessed beauty junkie and constantly try new products in search of that perfect, dream-come-true amazing item to mix in with my all-time favorites. I have several beauty essentials that I consistently use every day and while traveling that I wanted to share with you.

It’s important to start with skin care because it doesn’t matter how good your makeup is if your skin isn’t taken care of. I only drink water to keep myself hydrated and I have a total skin care regimen using all La Mer products from cleanser to toner to “the cream”. I cannot live without the La Mer Crème de la Mer. This cream moisturizers my skin to such an amazing degree of softness and vitality that I am still sometimes shocked by how good it is. I use it every morning and night even though it’s expensive. It truly is a product that is worth every penny.

I always search for just the right tinted moisturizer or light-weight foundation with no true love found yet but I have found the perfect concealer with Clé de Peau Beauté.  The concealer is a celeb/makeup artist favorite for a reason. It blends smoothly, never creases and blemishes or dark circles are erased yet very little product is needed so one tube lasts for ages.

I wasn’t a fan of blush until I discovered Nars The Multiple, a cream blush stick that goes on lightly, builds up easily and adds a sweet flush to my cheeks without being sticky or cakey.

It may have taken me a while to embrace blush but I have always loved bronzer. My current favorite is to mix Tarte Park Avenue Princess {love the name too} which gives a light, slightly matte glow with my new favorite, Aerin Illuminating Bronze Powder. This product adds a subtle shimmer to my cheeks that is so pretty but not OTT glitz and the packaging is ideal for travel or on-the-go application.

As for mascara? I am still searching for the ultimate mascara that will make my lashes long, luscious, curly and reminiscent of falsies but have not had any luck. Any suggestions?
