Three of my favorite beauty tools

As a women in the beauty industry I love tools that help me be more efficient with my skin care and makeup products. It’s important to have the proper products that will help make your life easier and not complicated. Sometimes I feel people feel either intimidated by what seems like a complicated look or they might feel like a skin care regimen might take too long to do. I’m all about efficiency as I am a women with two businesses, two other jobs, and plenty of other responsibilities. So I wanted to share three of my favorite beauty tools which I use daily in my beauty routine and how they have drastically made my life better. FYI if you click on any of the names of these beauty tools it’ll take you to a link to purchase them.

Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush

“This lightweight, two-speed power brush gently massages as it thoroughly cleans skin, removing residue, dirt and makeup in seconds.

• Removes makeup 85% better than cleansing by hand.*

• Boosts the absorption of your next skin care step.

• Starts improving skin’s appearance immediately.

• Helps polish away the look of past skin damage for a more even-looking complexion.

• Softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.”

This brush makes me feel as if I am in a fancy spa every morning as I take a shower. The bristles are soft so they feel good. And I can tell that I am getting a deeper and more fuller cleaning. It makes my cleanser work double time which means the benefits I get from my cleanser are even more effective. The brush is easy use and the brush heads are easy to change out. I also love that the brush comes with batteries and two additional brush heads. Plus in the future you can also buy more brush heads separately. One piece of advice I’d give while using this though is to make sure your hair is up because I use the brush on my neck as well and I’ve had a couple of occasions where my hair got stuck in the brush.

Essential Brush Collection

“The Mary Kay® Essential Brush Collection includes five high-quality, precisely shaped brushes which are ideal for creating a range of looks, packed in a stylish, portable clutch.

• New brush shapes help anyone create makeup looks with confidence.

• Each brush excels at blendability, application and pickup.

• Synthetic bristles are compatible with liquid, cream and powder.”

In order to get the makeup look you want, you have to be using the right tools. And this brush collection has all the tools you need!

“The collection includes:

  • All-Over Powder Brush
  • Cheek Brush
  • All-Over Eye Shadow Brush
  • Eye Crease Brush
  • Eye Smudger Brush”

It also has a case to keep all the brushes in that is sleek and travels well. Each brush is perfectly angled for the part of the face it is used on. The brushes have the techniques you need without you having to be an expert.

Travel Roll-Up Bag

Here’s a great way to keep skin care products and cosmetics safe and organized while you’re on the go. Compartments are removable for added convenience.

This is probably my favorite of all three items because of its versatility. You can hang the bag up with a hook, the compartments are clear so you can easily see what’s inside, they come off with Velcro, and the bag rolls up and you can carry it by its handle. I have one that I keep in my shower with all of my cleansers and soaps I use there, I have one I use when I go to the gym, I have one for when I travel which I keep all my liquid items in, and in college I used one to keep all my accessories organized. There are an infinite amount of ways to use this bag!

So what are some of your favorite beauty tools? I love getting feedback from you guys so keep it coming! And don’t forget to follow my blog by pressing the button at the bottom of the page.

Nighttime Skin Care Routine

Above is a video showing me washing my face at night. I’d say all together it took about 5 minutes to do. Below I’ll be explaining everything that I used so check it out!

1.Eye Makeup Remover $15

This product “gently removes eye makeup, including waterproof mascara, without tugging or pulling the delicate skin in the eye area. Formula does not leave skin feeling greasy.” – taken from website

All you have do to is shake it up, squeeze some into a cotton ball, and then rub around your eyes. I also use this product on my lips if I have a lipstick that’s hard to get off like a bright color or matte shade.

2.Facial Cleaning Cloths $18

This product “gently removes dirt, oil and makeup, leaving your skin feeling clean and soft.” – taken from website

I love these wipes because they already have the cleanser in them. All you have to do is wet it and rub it to together to get the suds going. This is a great option for night time when you don’t feel like washing your face. After you wash your face off you wet the cloth again, wiping away any dirt on there, and wash away the soap from your face. It’s as easy as that! It comes with 30 cloths.

3.Vitamin C Activating Squares $24

“This beauty industry first uses breakthrough technology that delivers pure vitamin C to your skin in a tiny, dissolvable square. In just 2 weeks,* TimeWise® Vitamin C Activating Squares™ were shown to deliver visible benefits in the appearance of even skin tone, skin radiance and fine lines and wrinkles.” – taken from website

*Results based on a four-week independent clinical study in which 29 women used TimeWise® Vitamin C Activating Squares™ dissolved in a neutral base three times a week. The neutral base did not contain age-fighting ingredients.

Our body does not naturally produce vitamin C, so we have to get it from other ways. This is a fun way to get pure vitamin C into your system. What you do to activate the square is drop a little bit of water on it so it will dissolve in your hand and then you mix it in with a serum. The serum I used is step #4. It comes with 12 squares.

4.Replenishing Serum +C $56

“Help skin bounce back with TimeWise Replenishing Serum+C®. Skin will appear lifted, firmed and more resilient.” – Taken from website

I mix my Vitamin C Square with this serum for an added boost of vitamin C. Also when applying product to your face, it’s always important to rub upwards and in circular motion. This last about 3 months.

5.Age Minimize 3D Night Cream $32

This product “Delivers a bedtime boost of antioxidants when applied at night, working while skin is most able to rebuild its reserves.” – taken from website

Along with rebuilding your skin over night, this product also moisturizes your skin for 12 hours. And it comes in oily/combo or dry/normal. There is also a day Cream with SPF 30 you can use in the morning. This last about 3 months.

6.Age Minimize 3D Eye Cream $36

“Skin looks firmer as this quick-absorbing cream brightens the eye area and keeps it moisturized for 12 hours.” – taken from website

The area underneath your eye is one of the most sensitive areas on your body because it has the least amount of skin. This is why it’s recommended to have an eye cream. And when you apply an eye cream it’s recommended to use your ring finger because that has the lightest touch. And you pat underneath the eye and along the brow bone. You don’t want to rub that area so please remember to pat the skin lightly. This last about 3 months.
