I wanted to share a few of the must-have beauty items that I’ve been LOVING lately! This season, I’m all about a deeply-pigmented eye look paired with a tousled wave in my hair, among other looks, so here are the secret weapons that have been on heavy rotation in my glam life.
REN Perfect Canvas
I have been smoothing on this bio-active-rich serum all over my face before applying foundation and loving every single ounce of it. It instantly smoothes and perfects my complexion, while boosting the production of proteins and enzymes for overall improved skin health and structure. Best of all, it keeps my skin hydrated all day and really is the perfect primer before makeup.
Pat McGrath Mothership II Eye Palette
Every time I reach for this stunning eye palette, I have to justify the hefty price tag. It’s $125, and I actually paid for it (I haven’t purchased beauty products in about a decade thanks to my tenure as a beauty editor)–but this was one item that I just had to own. The colors are insanely gorgeous and very pigmented. I try to create a runway-inspired look almost every day, which never gets boring. Okay, Pat. You win.
Susanne Kaufmann Shampoo
I wasn’t expecting much from this pricey shampoo (and shower gel-in-one, apparently), but boy, was I wrong. This hair miracle product has a lovely feminine scent that is far from empowering, but present enough just so you remember precisely why it’s a luxury shampoo. It’s made from a nourishing blend of sage, rose hip oil and aloe vera, so it’s very moisturizing, yet perfect for an oily scalp (like mine) that needs a daily sudsing. Dare I say it, some of my best hair days of the season so far are owed to this product.
Revlon Steel Pin Brush
Perfect for detangling thick and unruly hair, the steel pin design penetrates hair faster and stronger, which is positively perfect when I’m combatting the climate in the Windy City. I’m always worried about breakage when combing through wet hair, and this powerful brush was created to minimize damage as much as possible. It gets the job quickly and easily and I couldn’t be more grateful for this guy.Smooth hair in just a few seconds? Count me in.
