my top 10 beauty must-haves

top 10 beauty must-haves - STYLE ME GRASIEI’m by no means a beauty blogger but I know what I love and thought I would share it with you.  With that, I give you my top 10 beauty must-haves!

  1. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – If you ever had a zit, you’ll probably get one again and this little bottle of pink magic will come to your rescue. It does exactly what it says…drys out that nasty pimple while you sleep!
  2. Bliss Pore Perfecting Facial Polish – A facial scrub that’s gentle yet perfect for getting rid of dead skin and making your pores look smaller. I use it once a week.
  3. Revlon Color Stay Creme Gel Eyeliner – The only black liner that stays on my eye lid without leaking to my under eyes. Plus, the creme texture makes it super easy to create a cat eye without making a mess.
  4. bareMinerals Flawless Application Face Brush - Make-up brushes are important so take the time to find one that you love that doesn’t irritate your skin. This brush is beyond soft. I have a collection of bareMineral brushes to match.
  5. bareMinerals READY SPF 15 Touch Up Veil – A great powder that also protects against UV rays! I only wear powder for auditions but this one is definitely light enough to wear all day.
  6. MAC Cosmetic Ruby Woo Lipstick - If you know me at all…you know I LOVE my red lipstick and this is my absolutely favorite shade of red. It’s matte and looks good on all skin tones. Trust me, I’ve made every woman I know try it at some point or another.
  7. Lancome “La Base” Pro Perfecting Make-up Primer – If you want your make-up to last all day, start with this. Seriously.
  8. Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Pure-Castile Soap in Almond – Apparently, you can use this stuff for all your cleansing needs but I use is as a shower gel. It smells absolutely delicious and leaves me feeling clean without slimy, soapy residue left on my skin.
  9. Moroccanoil Treatment – I have the driest hair known to man and living in Los Angeles’ desert climate doesn’t help the cause. Moroccanoil adds great shine without leaving your hair greasy. Warning: use VERY LITTLE…it goes a long way.
  10. Sultra The Bombshell 3/4 Inch Curling Rod – This rod or any rod curling iron is the best tool for the loose, beachy curls I love most. Get a barrel size that’s appropriate for your hair length and make sure to use the protective glove it comes with or you will get burned. I learned the hard way.

And there you have…a peek inside my beauty regime! What are some of your beauty must-haves?

      I do use the rose water too! It’s super refreshing and nice to use dew up your face mid day!
