5 Beauty Products I Can't Live Without

My theory when it comes to beauty is less is more. I keep it pretty natural on a daily basis, with a focus on clean skin, a little bit of mascara, and some lip gloss. Combine that with a good blow out, and I am ready for anything.

  • Klorane Dry Shampoo

    My stylist in LA recommended this product to prolong my blowouts. I use it daily because it keeps me looking fresh and put together while also adding some fun texture. My schedule is non-stop, and now, my hair is one less thing I have to worry about.

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

    Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

    I am all about effortless makeup, and Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer provides just the right amount of coverage to help even out my complexion and create that perfect “I woke up like this” look. It also has SPF 20, so you’re getting a little bit of protection, too.

  • Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara

    Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara

    An associate at the Sephora beauty counter got me hooked on this mascara. I typically find that after a few weeks, most mascaras lose their luster, but not this one. A few quick swipes, and my lashes are suddenly long and lush.

  • Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Lip Balm

    I love this gloss because it adds just the right tint of color on its own, and it also works well as a finishing touch with other shades of lipstick.

  • Cynd VinyLux Weekly Polish in Romantique

    Cynd VinyLux Weekly Polish in Romantique

    Before I discovered this nail polish, I used to find myself running to the nail salon twice a week (light colors tend to chip easily). Not only do I love this shade of pink — it feels sophisticated yet fresh — but this polish also doesn’t chip and lasts at least a week.
