from top to bottom:
philosophy Hope In A Jar® SPF 25 Daily Moisturizer For All Skin Types: the best part about this incredible moisturizer is the SPF 25 - whatever moisturizer you wear make sure it has SPF for protection against harmful rays from the sun. you will thank yourself one day;)
'The Bombshell™' 1.5-Inch Rod Curling Iron: GAME CHANGER is all I can say! this is what allows me to do my hair in just a few short minutes and still have those curls. on a day to day basis especially after my workouts and I'm off somewhere quickly I grab big chunks of hair and wrap it around for 10 seconds or so. this gives me the loose curls (the messy but still together look). and when I'm heading out and have more time I take smaller pieces and hold each chunk a bit longer to get slightly tighter curls.
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35: another SPF cream that keeps your face looking fresh. this is the answer to reducing those fine lines and keeping your face hydrated throughout the day!
Chloe Rollerball: because really when you finish that work out and have a quick rinse you always need to smell that fresh, floral scent! the effect is chic, comfortable, and entirely addictive.
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo: truth be told on about day 3 of not washing my hair is when it looks the best! this is an absolute must in all your beauty supplies. It gives your hair volume while absorbing oil leaving your hair feeling clean and non-greasy. i part my hair on each side about 1 inch above my ear and and part in the back and give it a good spray, flip my head over to shake it and just like that hair has body and no need to spend the time shampooing and blow drying your hair!
philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleansing Cloths: the first thing I use if i'm not showering and washing my face after class is one of these to wipe off my make up and start fresh. these are also incredibly handy to use before class especially if you are going into a hot yoga class or a workout you sweat a lot in to get that make up off your face so it doesn't sink into your pores.
Urban Decay Naked Flushed: a little bronzer and blush is exactly what you need to keep that glow. i am all about that blush and this combination is perfect to create just the right effect. the best thing about this combo is that the shades are universal to all skin tones.
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes Broad Spectrum SPF 15: comes in 5 different shades! under my eyes is the first thing i notice when i look in the mirror and this is finally my answer! again with the SPF protection it also reduces puffiness and fine lines under my eyes. easy to apply with the brush already attached - this is a must have!
Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15: throughout the day i am all about the on the go natural look and this stick provides exactly that. with a hint of colour that looks and feels natural while moisturizing and providing SPF 15 protection throughout the day!
SEPHORA COLLECTION Gradual Self-Tanning Body Lotion: i am not a fan of tanning beds to keep that glow throughout the winter months but it always feels good to have a little colour on my white legs. this is what i use every single day and over time you build a nice base tan. no streaks either like some instant tanners leave. the best thing about this product is that it doesn't have that smell that a lot of self tanner's have. it's very fresh and no lingering tanning smell after you apply.
