I joined a new gym. My whole routine has changed. Just what I needed, a little shake up to the same old habits. Of course my products needed a little boost too. This gym is filled with beauties and I needed to feel a little more confident. So here is what I bought and why:
Tan Towels. They are by far the most effective and easiest way to create a natural self tan glow. Here is the deal, cellulite and back arm flab just look a little more pleasant when they are tan. That's that. Barre class will help, but I am faking it until I make it. Literally. I prefer the "Half Body Application for face & Body" They usually come in a 10 pack. I sometimes cut them in half and save the other half in a baggie to get my money's worth.
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. I can not get over my new discovery!!! I was recently given a ULTA Beauty gift card. When I receive a gift card I make a promise to myself to use it on new products I have never tried before. I wanted a very light under eye concealer that could get through a 50 minute spin class. This only comes in one color and the texture is heaven. Just enough coverage to hold your head up high as you enter the gym at 7:30 AM or any time of day. YAY!!!! You know we are obsessed with the Becca highlighters. Check our highlighting post here.
Maybelline Lash Discovery Waterproof Mascara. Anyone who knows me knows that I swear by Lash Discovery by Maybelline. It just works the best and I love the wand. I go back to it every time. I decided to buy the waterproof. I don't always recommend waterproof mascara but I wanted to give this a try. It is working great and I take it off with my favorite eye makeup remover see post here. I do have one other mascara I like...see post here.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Dainty. This is a new purchase for me but Gemma has been swearing by their lip glosses for a while now. She wears it herself and uses it on clients, so I decided to give it a try. I love it. Moisturizing, great staying power and looks like I didn't try too hard, if worn to a Pilates Mat class.
Anastasia Pro Pencil. In Base 1.The intention behind this product is to hide hairs around the eyebrows as they grow back in. Clever right! I am always asking clients especially young girls to take some time and let their over plucked eyebrows grow back in. This should help. This product is also great at covering blemishes, spots and veins. It is in a small convenient package and the tip makes applications precise. I also use it to put under the brow bone for clear and highlighted definition. You can use it after an eyebrow wax if you get red and have somewhere to be right away. I am excited to have this! Maggie has a great post on eyebrow shaping see here.
On gym days I really only use one or maybe two of the above products. They just give you a little more confidence and and when you feel good, you tend do give it your all.
If you want a little more coverage for your overall face we are crazy about our new find Miracle Skin Transformer. Only available on Amazon. Perfect light and hydrating coverage. Check out Gemma's gym face post here.
OK.....I'm off.........I saw a woman wearing these workout pants that have a pocket for your iPhone. I may have followed her to ask her where she got them! HERE!
