What's in your medicine cabinet?

Since I can’t focus on redecorating our home, this weekend I decided to give my medicine cabinet a makeover. I threw out my old mascara, sharpened my lip pencils, restocked a few must-have items, and discarded a number products that I never actually use. This mini makeover got me thinking…what do YOU actually use everyday to look your best? As women, we’re always told we “need” this product, we must try this new blush…but in reality, I don’t really want to spend an hour in front of the mirror before work. Nor do I want to spend an hour before bed putting on wrinkle cream and such. The things in my medicine cabinet are items I actually USE. So today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite products, in hopes that you’ll share your beauty secrets too!

What’s in my medicine cabinet?

Just the basics, really…we’ll start from the top left.

{Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves}

Sexy Hair’s root pump plus (use after showering on my roots for extra lift)

Sexy Hair’s powder play (use on dry hair for instant lift, body)

Orange cups (contains bobby pins and hair ties)

Kiehl’s lip balm #1 -pear (must-have before bed and before runs)

Mac plush glass in ample pink (perfect soft pink gloss for work/play)

Tarte maracuja blush and glow (cheek tint)

Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (I use this as my foundation)

Zoya’s remove + (nail polish remover, plus nail cleaner/prep)

Butter’s pink ribbon (the perfect neutral nail color)

Opi’s clear top coat (in the mini bottle – perfect for traveling!)
