Katie’s Top 5 Beauty Favorites!

Top 5 Beauty Favs

Whenever friends get together we tend to ask each other what are some of your favorite beauty products and why? I also get a lot of compliments on my makeup, skin and hair. Since this is a question that is asked of me often I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity for a blog.


  1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +

My face feels like something is off everyday before I put on this lotion. When I put on this lotion it such a smooth, light and fresh feeling that makes my face feel complete. I have been using this lotion for over 10 years now!! (I feel old!) Not a day goes by that I don’t put on this lotion; I even have the trial sizes in my gym bag! Whenever I am on a cruise I usually stock up, as this is cheaper on the ship and tax-free!

  1. Burt’s Bees Lifeguard’s Choice Lip Balm

This is the only Lip Balm that I have found that heals my lips overnight! Living here in the North, I get chapped lips like crazy in the winter. Because of that I have like 5 of these bad boys hidden in my purse, makeup bag, nightstand, gym bag etc. I often forget that when I have it on this actually turns my lips white, until people think that something is wrong with my white lips and me! But seriously I put it on my chapped lips before bed and when I wake up they are completely normal. I can usually pick this up in most grocery stores.


  1. Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Wow Pop

This lipstick is my newest splurge! I bought it about two months ago and it has been my go-to ever since! It’s very light and smooth going on, but it lasts a while! I am known for having on hot pink lipstick and this one never leaves my side!

  1. Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Shampoo & Conditioner

Because of my allergy to scents most shampoos can send me to the hospital quick! Growing up a swimmer I was told to try Tea Tree Shampoo & Conditioner to help protect my hair from chlorine damage. The scent is actually extremely strong, but because it is pure oil with fewer chemicals it doesn’t bother me one bit! I have absolutely no patience for my hai

r, literally all I do it wash it and brush it. The fact that my hair turns out gorgeous all year round smells great and I get compliments on it means that I can’t live without this shampoo & conditioner! The Paul Mitchell version is a bit pricey, but there is a generic one that I also love from Sally’s Beauty Supply and it’s more than half the price!


  1. Schick Intuition Sensitive Care Razor

Growing up as a swimmer this was the best thing to come out since sliced bread! This razor came out when I was in high school and saved me a load of time, especially in the locker room. I use this razor to this day at home or even at the gym. The blades themselves are surrounded by what looks kind of like a bar of soap, but when you use the razor it foams up and is built in shaving cream! Because of the scent I use the sensitive skin version, however it comes in many different scents and colors.

Like my outfit? You can get this adorable Building my Empire t-shirt from The Trendy Sparrow here. I just love her products! Also my headband is from Bando and you can snag one for yourself here. My Good Morning Gorgeous print is available on my Etsy shop here.
