Show Us Your Life - Show Your Favorite Beauty Products

I thought I would do this little blog link up with Kellys Korner her blog is one of my favorites to read, and I always look forward to reading on Friday's when she does her link ups. Recently she has been doing a series on home decor, which has really gotten me excited about our house in Clemson.

This is my second link up with Kelly's blog. The first link up that I did was about infertility .... now lets talk beauty protects. Two things near and dear to my heart, infertility and beauty products. :o) So here we are my must haves!

Blonde Glam by Redken is my favorite shampoo and conditioner. My hairstylist here in Dallas told me about it and I have LOVED it. It is light weight but gives enough moisture and has kept my blonde hair from turning golden yellow, and extends time between highlights. I can use it on days when I dry my hair or on curly days.The best thing about this product is that it is so much less expensive than the shampoo I was using before. All you blonde ladies out there should give it a try, it will not disappoint.
Foundation is so important. I can't stand the caked on makeup look. I have naturally really dry very pale skin so it's hard to find a good foundation. I really love Chanel's Perfection Lumiere in Beige Rose. It's light enough for me but also provides good coverage when I need it. If applied with the correct brush it only takes a little bit to cover the face so the bottle last a long time.
I wear Chanel's Joues Contraste blush for my every day blush. All the colors are great! Blush is one of my favorite items in my makeup drawer, it can really change a whole look. I love a pop of pink on the cheek!

It's embarrassing to admit that I have worn the exact same everyday eye shadow colors since I first started wearing makeup in what...7th grade??!! But Bobbi Brown eye shadows are the BEST. In my customized palette for everyday I wear....Bone, Heather, Taupe and Blonde. Sometimes I mix in Slate if I want a little darker and stone if I want a little shimmer.
For my everyday eyeliner I use Clinique quickliner in blue/grey. I love this color. I use it on both the top lid and the outside of the bottom. For the inside of the bottom lid (or membrane...but I don't like that word) I use Lancome - Le Crayon Khol in teal. I have both of these stock piled because I am terrified that they will stop making these colors...paranoid...well maybe a little. 
My new favorite mascara is by benefit and called they're Real! I admit that I saw on twitter that Emily Maynard wears this and I went right out and got it. I do love it and it doesn't flake off or rub off. Those eyelashes look just as good at 7pm as they did at 7am. 

Last but not least my lipstick that I wear no matter what the occosian...this would be another one that i have worn my whole makeup wearing life. Cheapo L'oreal 810 in Sandstone. 
Wow, that's a lot! I could keep going. I LOVE makeup and beauty products and have a bathroom full of them, however this is my everyday favorites. Can't wait to get some new favorites with reading others blog post!

Happy Friday!!


  1. You and I bought the benefit mascara for the exact same reason! Emily Maynard, ha! I'm loving it, too! It doesn't flake and stays on forever!

    I may have to try the Redken hair products. Just had my hi-lites done and maybe it will make a difference?

    Stopping by from Kelly's!

  2. I love Kelly's Korner and have been reading since before Harper was born, I've just never gotten up the nerve to link up! I'm totally tempted to do a post on Kyle for next Friday's singles link up though. He would probably kill me.

  3. I love that particular L'Oreal lipstick formula, the color divine wine is my favorite color that they have and I've worn it for years! I think I'm gong to try the Benefit mascara, I've heard so many great things about it!!

  4. Clemson SC???? My sister.lives in greenville! My 2 nieces went to clemson!!

  5. I love... love love love that lip color. In fact, it's what I have worn since that time you stole some for me from Target. :) LOVE YOU!!

    AND, MOVE to Clemson fast!


I would love to hear from you! I read each and every comment and they make my day!
