  1. Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and Makeup Remover: I have fallen head over heels over the past year for Bobbi Brown makeup and Soothing Cleanser Oil! The entire makeup line is just gorg and natural looking. If you want a makeup that will give you a non-makeup look…this is it. Available at Macy’s prices range from $20 and up. If you’re in Chicago, go to the State Street location and ask for Viola. IMG_6748
  1. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer and Secret Brightening Powder: These two products have saved me from looking a hot tired mess. It covers and gives life to my dark circles. I can’t live without these two. Available at Sephora for $24 each.

  1. IMG_6755Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil and Opaque Liquid Lipstick: The brow genius and the long lasting lippie are a match made in beauty heaven! Without the brow genius…my brows would not exist and without the liquid lipstick…I would spend all day reapplying my lipstick (and that’s no bueno)! Available at Sephora for $32 (brow) and $28 (lips).
  1. IMG_6753Eden Body Works Hair Care: This brand of products keep my tresses looking healthy and just fly! A few of my faves: Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo to remove the buildup and detox my hair. Coconut Shea Styling Elixir offers heat protection from heat styling. Coconut Shea Oil strengthens and adds shine without buildup. Available at endenbodyworks.com for $8.99 each.
  1. IMG_6759Green Smoothies: These are healthy treats full of fruits, veggies, vitamins and all sorts of goodness.
