Show Us Your Life - Beauty Tips and Favorite Products

I am so excited about Kelly's Korner beauty tips and favorite products today on Show Us Your Life!!! I am a sucker for any fun beauty product, I always love buying fun new stuff in the stores. I swear marketing people should love me because I am always the one that falls for them all!!!! I'm like that with cleaning products too.

I am really excited to find some new make up today on here. I have been trying to find a new foundation that I like lately but I think my favorite is Bare Escentuals and I'm out. I just wish it wasn't so expensive. I'm not really loyal to one specifi brand of make up. I buy all brands of eyeshadows and lipstick. Although lately I've gotten most of my lipsticks from Avon. They are cheap and I really like most of them. I've also worn Merle Norm Spice Sachet lip pencil for the last year. I heard about it on Kelly's Korner last year and I've been addicted since then. This is the one I wear most of the time. One item I am very loyal to is my mascara. I buy the same brand every time and every time I try new I end up throwing it away and resorting back to this.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Mabelline's Great Lash Curved Brush mascara. A lot of people I know always ask what mascara I use and they try it don't like it, but it works great for me. I have really long eyelashes and this is the one I've learned that works best for me.

I am always buying different lotions and trying new moisturizers and this is one of my favorites!
I have used St. Ives whipped silk lotion since high school.  I usuallys always have a big bottle of this that sits on my bathroom sink. Christian and I both like it and I think it smells so fresh! I use it for an all over moisturizer.

This winter I have had really dry skin and wanted to try something else to use along with my lotion.
I found this in the shower body lotion and it works so well! Once you are finished in the shower rub this all over your body and then rinse! I really like how smooth it makes me feel but I don't use it all the time and I don't use a lot because it can be kind of greasy feeling. The other downfall with this is it causes your shower to feel extra slick and slimey.

I also use this facial moisturizer every morning.
I really like this Olay Complete Daily UV Moisturizer. I have really liked it this year and haven't really had dry skin on my face this winter. I'm hoping it works just as welll this summer when I'm in the sun!

As far as my hair goes...I am always using different shampoos and conditioners. I don't use one particular type of shampoo but it is usually something to help frizzy hair and make it straight. I have really thick and wavy hair. My hair stylist started using this Redken product on my hair over a year ago and I've been hooked ever since.
I love this product and I use everytime I wash my hair and it smells so good!! My straightner and big round brush is also a very good friend of mine. If any of you have any good suggestions on straightening products, please share!?!?

One other thing I use almost daily is my Cherry Blossom body splash from Bath and Body Works.

I use this almost everyday, I usually spray it on right before I get dressed! I love perfume and I have a ton of it but I don't always wear them everyday. A lot of the scents from Bath & Body Works give me a headache but I love this one!

So there you have it all my favorite daily beauty products!!!

I love Bath and Body Works. My favorite scents from them are Coco Cabana (which is a oldie) and Pear Berry. I also really like the Twilight Woods that came out for the fall.
