Sometimes it feels like you need one hundred tools and products just to get ready for the day. And I mean, if you know me you know that I love that part: the getting ready part, with the makeup and the curlers. But some days I just can’t… meaning that I’ve rolled out of bed too late and literally just don’t have time, but also meaning that some days I’m just burnt out on trying to worry about being beautiful. So here are my favorites that I love love love, that do the trick single-handedly while not breaking my bank *college student over here*.

  • Aveeno Moisturizing Lotion- This stuff you guys is my magic in a bottle. I know it’s nothing special but for the past few years it’s been THE absolute best at keeping my skin hydrated. It’s gold on my face. (And that’s the secret part, I use it as my face moisturizer. I promise it will change your life ;).
  • Tease Brush- Most people need a little extra volume in their hair, but especially me. My hair tends to be limp, and my world was changed when someone showed me how to give a little tease… and all the sudden I felt like I had thick, beautiful Kim Kardashian hair. Love it.
  • Essie Ballet Slippers- I feel SO much more together when my nails are painted. And my go-to is often this white/pink shade, it goes with everything and it looks fresh.
  • Cover Girl Falsies- If I’m heading out and not going through a whole makeup routine I usually go with mascara and blush. This happens to be one of my favorite mascaras, but lately I’ve been layering it with a Mary-Kay mascara also. Layering is fabulous if you’ve never tried!
  • Mary-Kay Blush- Like I said, blush is one of the few products that I tend to always use. It gives you a glow and fresh face, and who isn’t always trying for that?!


So, what are your favorites?
