Things I Love: Beauty Staples

Whew, it’s been a minute since I’ve done a blog round up of some of the things I’m loving on! And since it has been so long since I have done one, I’ve decided to get back into the groove with some of my everyday basics. The tried and true staples in my beauty routine that I reach for time and time again. These are them! So, let’s get into it!


Honest Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes – These are one of those everyday products that you usually don’t need to get too brand specific about because everyone makes them and usually they get the job done, but once I discovered these new wipes from Honest Beauty, it changed all that. The smell alone makes me feel like I’m settling in for a nice relaxing day at the spa. Love them!

Benefit POREfessional Face Primer – I have tried a lot of primers out there, but keep coming back to this one. I only wish they sold it in the large size tube year round and not just around the holidays.

Thayers Rose Petal Toner – Great alcohol-free toners are few and far between….and rose petal toner, nonetheless. I use this stuff religiously.

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Strength & Shine – I’ve tried pretty much every dry shampoo out there and this is in my top 3 favorites. And you can buy it on bulk on Amazon!

Blinc Lash Primer + Mascara – The one-two punch of the Blinc Primer and Mascara on top of it seriously gives the look of really fantastic false lashes. Like in the best way possible! And does not budge! I rock this on wedding days and never have a black ring around my eyes at the end of the day.

Beautyblender – You just need one of these in your cosmetics bag! I use mine primarily for highlighting, but it’s also a dream for applying cream foundation too.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – This. Forever and Always. How did my makeup ever stay on my face before I discovered this stuff?!

Benefit Gimme Brow – I have sooooo many more brow products to talk your ear off about when it comes to really ‘doing my brows’ when I do my makeup, but this little genius product is my go-to for daily coffee runs and dropping the kid off at school. So quick and easy and gets the job done for a day of erranding.


Whew, I think that’s it for now! What is in your everyday kit?! What beauty products can’t you live without?! Tell me, tell me!
