My Beauty Product and Makeup Staples

I must love you all... because I'm about to share some of my secrets! People often ask me what products I use on my skin or what makeup I use... Below are some of my favorite items that I use daily, or close to it!

1. Aveeno Positively Radiant Facial Moisturizer: Has SPF 15 which is important! Also, if you deal with hyperpigmentation, sunscreen is a must. I use this every single day whether it's sunny out or not.
 2. Aveeno Positvely Radiant Cleansing Pads: One side is soft for regular cleansing and the other side is exfoliating. I use the exfoliating side twice a week. Tip: The pads are HUGE so I cut them in half to wash my face, and use the other half the next day. They last me twice as long :)
3. Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover: Shake it up and use a cotton ball for removing your eye makeup. Never EVER sleep with your makeup on, ladies. EVER.
4. L'oreal True Match Powder: My color alternates between W7 or W8. I'm an 8 in the summer, 7 in the winter. Sometimes I use "N" (neutral) if the store is out of "W" (warm). Don't know your undertone? Generally, golden undertones are Warms and cooler/blue undertones are Cool. What I love about these powders and foundations is that if you're unsure, neutral will work! :)
5. MAC Spiked Brow Pencil: I've tried many brow pencils. For YEARS. This is my fave. I guess because it's so thin and precise so I can give my brows more detail. I use this every day. Brows frame the face - there is nothing worse than a made up eye and fab lashes, and an eyebrow that isn't groomed or properly filled in. Here is a tutorial on how I do my brows.
