Hello pals, readers, and people who have stumbled on this blog. I am sharing my favorite beauty products with you today and how I use them! Beauty products are the only things I don’t skimp on because I have sensitive skin, but there are hundreds of blog posts on duplicates for the products I use.
Step 1. Hydrate and take care of your skin
I use rose water from Onurth located in New York. This rose water works wonders! It clears your face and hydrates it. According to their website, which you can find here, you can hydrate thirsty skin with a soothing mist of Onurth’s sought after rose water. From the finest Bulgarian roses comes this replenishing hydrolat with natural humectant qualities to add and retain moisture to tired skin. Use after cleansing and throughout the day to refresh and rehydrate your complexion. A must have for drier skin types and frequent
travelers (bring your 2 ounce bottle on the plane). This is what rose is supposed to smell like – Use in place of a toner or as a gentle cleanser with Onurth’s Eco Squares. Rose has an affinity with the heart; promoting balance, aiding in emotional processing and supports in decision making.
- Ingredients: Pure Floral Hydrosol from Organically-Grown Bulgarian Roses.
- Origin: Bulgaria
- Shelf Life: Three to Six Months

Step 2 1/2: The brush I use
I love love love IT cosmetics! The founder is so cute and I love her message! You can find
the dual sided brush here for $20. It is perfect for applying foundation AND concealer. IT is high quality and is cruelty-free!
According to IT’s website: Ultra luxe, ultra plush tool for perfect airbrush application. Provides the capability to build coverage with foundation or powder and buff away imperfections. This brush was designed with leading plastic surgeons to apply BOTH foundation and concealer to a flawless, airbrushed finish!
The ultra plush, ultra luxe large end allows you to quickly apply your foundation to larger areas for a beautiful airbrushed finish, while the micro-end allows for the most accurate precision in even the smallest spaces. This high-quality brush is extremely soft and great for even the most sensitive skin!
Step 3. Lippy stick
Tarte has wonderful, and hydrating, lipstick! My favorite shade is poppy, simply because
poppies are my fav flower! 😉 You can find their lipstick at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot or Tarte’s website. The lipstick makes your lips tingle a bit and it feels amazing! According to Tarte’s website: Inspired by the whimsical colors of the Amazon and infused with naturally-derived ingredients from its lush vegetation, these Amazonian butter lipsticks add a splash of rich color and creamy shine for a perfect pout.
Step 4. Cheek Stain
Benefit makes THE BEST cheek stain! It lasts all day and according to th
em it’s “snuggle and kiss proof.” They have it in three colors and I’m planning on making my second purchase. Posietint is poppy-tinted too ;). You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot and Benefit’s website. The product description, taken from Benefit’s website, is:
This poppy-pink tinted stain brightens cheeks & lips with a cheery flush. The liquid-gel formula beautifully blends on all complexions and lasts for hours.
- Natural finish
Step 5. Mascara
I like to use drug store brands, but my current mascara crush is Better than Sex mascara by Too Faced! It holds a curl well and lengthens eyelashes! Best mascara I’ve ever used. You can find it at Sephora, Ulta, Glambot,and the Too Faced website. I like to buy the mini because it’s cheaper, but you do you! The product description taken from the Too Faced website:
What it is:
An intensely black, volumizing mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection.
What it does:
Inspired by the curves of a woman’s body, the hourglass-shaped brush was designed with extra stiff bristles to maximize the performance of this carbon black, collagen-fueled formula. One coat and lashes are full and defined. Two coats and lashes are even more luscious, curled, and dramatic. Three coats help you achieve the most intense, black, multidimensional lashes possible.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
Better Than Sex mascara contains a film-forming polymer for smudge-proof, all day wear and unique peptides for the deepest, intense black possible.
And that’s it! It takes less than ten minutes to apply these products and you’ll have a fresh, natural look.
