My Daily Beauty Routine : 10 Items I Can't Live Without #beauty

I have a large Benefit makeup bag filled to the brim with tons of makeup, but there is only a handful of items that I really use on a day-to-day basis. When I go visit my mom or dad, I fill up a very tiny Smashbox clutch with the items above, and they are really all that I need to do my face. These are my must have items that I just can not live without and they all happen to be drugstore brands. 

1: moisturizer- I switch a lot in between Aveeno and Neutrogena moisturizers, but one of them is always in my makeup bag. Just like I wash my face twice a day, I moisturize.

2: primer- upon finishing my bottle of Smashbox photofinish primer, I began to look for a more affordable option. I first tried the Rimmer brand and recently received this one from Neutrogena which is working really well for me. 

3: concealer- Dark under eye circles are not attractive. A good concealer is a moms best friend.

4: Cover Girl Outlast foundation - is my current favorite after I was told by mom that I could not have anymore of my first choice Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow. I guess $36 for a bottle that only lasts me a month is a bit expensive but so far I am really happy with this Cover Girl one and will be repurchasing it. As you can see I am almost out of it already.

5: mascara - I am not too picky when it comes to this since I use falsies all the time. I really like: Maybelline Stiletto, E.L.F. Mineral Infused Mascara and Maybelline's Big Eyes, with the dual wands. 

6: liner - This is my first ever gel liner, having always been a fan of Rimmel pencils. I like it, it works for me. I still like the pencils too so I will probably be switching back and forth between both.

7: setting powder - I have a lot of powders. I really like the True Match but the Rimmel Stay Matte is my hands down favorite. I love this powder which really controls my oily skin.

8: lips - I always have some sort of balm on my lips because they get very dry. I just finished a E.O.S. lip balm and a Chapstick, but when I do my face I want some color and I always have this Baby Lips with me. 

9: falsies - the item I can not live without probably only after the lip balm. I have the teeniest lashes that droop down. I hate them. After spending tons of money on more expensive lashes, we discovered these packages from China. They used to be .99 and are now like $1.49, but still super cheap. My mom will order like 4 boxes at a time and China and I split them. One box will last me over a month, I am very careful with my lashes, it doesn't matter that they are so cheap, I take care of them.

10: heat protectant - I thought my TRESemme Thermal Creations heat protectant deserved the last spot on this list because it really is my favorite and I use it every time I do my hair. It's so affordable and it really does keep my hair from getting over damaged.

These are my every day must have items. If I was stranded on a dessert island I could live with these items plus my iPod and be happy. What items do you use in your daily beauty routine?


  1. Maybelline colossal is one of my all time favorite mascaras :)

  2. I love the Aveeno lotions! They are mild and not too heavy.
