Beauty Must-Haves

When it comes to looking gorgeous from head to toe these must have products will help you do the trick! Here are some of my personal favorites!


Styling products

In order to keep your tresses looking shiny and sleek, in any weather, try Humidity Rx Anti-Frizz Weatherproof Spray by ColorProof! It won’t tamper with your hair color if you dye it and helps you maintain your style all day long, even in humid climates! This lightweight spray  locks in your style while locking out humidity and doesn’t feel stiff or sticky!

Root Cover

For perfect color every single day use COLOR WOW Root Cover Up! This amazing hair “makeup” camouflages roots in between color. It covers grey instantly and dark regrowth on lightened or highlighted hair! This pigmented hair powder is light reflective and looks so natural. It has staying power so it won’t come off until your next shampoo! It also works really well if your hair is thinning. Dab some on your scalp at your part and hairline and voila, your hair instantly looks fuller!



I can’t stress enough how important it is to  use sunscreen daily all year round! A great sunscreen with the added benefit of a moisturizer is Murad Essential-C Day Moisturize Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA +++! This product packs a powerful punch! It protects, moisturizes, and nourishes the skin with the skin brightening ingredient of Vitamin C!


If I’m ever stuck on a deserted island the ONE ESSENTIAL I would want to have with me at all times would be my concealer! My all-time absolute FAVORITE winner, hands down, is Cle De Peau Beaute Concealer Broad Spectrum 25! This concealer delivers long lasting, full coverage! It corrects dark pigmentation, under eye circles, imperfections, and uneven skin tones. It’s very concentrated so a little goes a long way, as it gives a seamless finish without looking or feeling heavy! I love the extra benefit of sun protection!


Full, beautifully groomed eyebrows are a growing trend that’s not going away any time soon! The great news is that, even if you don’t have great brows to start with, there are so many amazing  products to create a beautiful  brow! Anastasia Beverly Hills are known for all their great brow grooming products from pencils to gels, to stencil kits, and more! There is such a wide variety of textures and color choices in their products that you just can’t go wrong!


We tend to focus more on taking care of our face than our body. Most women neglect delicate areas that are sure to show damage when not cared for. The neck and décolletage, as well as the hands are often overlooked and will give away your age immediately! A little TLC will go a long way! Merle Norman Brilliant C skin care line has a wonderful cream for the neck and décolletage, and PLEASE remember to use sunscreen on these areas daily! Prevention  is just as important as upkeep!

For hands I love The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream! It’s infused with real honey and almond oil and is just what your hands need to keep them happy through the harsh winter months! I love to slather some on my feet before bed to keep my feet silky smooth too!
