The Superbowl Winners…of Beauty

As the big game is only a few days away, I thought I’d do a little ditty about Beauty Superbowl Winners.  Okay, so I’m not really going to sing about them but let’s give a shout out to those go-to products that should be playing in the finals for their daily performances. There are a few products that I don’t leave the house without.  Here’s my game- 1)  Mascara.  I’m sure my love affair with mascara began as maybe a freshman in high school.  I can remember the days when I wore it versus the days when I didn’t and a friend of mine would say, “There is just something different about your eyes today.”  Hm…must have been the mascara!  As you know, I’ve been using Cover Girl’s Natural Luxe Mouse mascara as my daily go-to mascara simply because I love a good waterproof that doesn’t feel like glue.  See post, Beauty Shop Saturday.  (Did you hear the controversy over the Taylor Swift ad? See here.)

And it takes seconds to apply!  I love that it can be really sheer or can cover imperfections if you feel the need to cover up.  For those of you with flawless skin, you may not understand the necessity of a good foundation.  But for those of us in the real world who need to run out of the house in five minutes or less sometimes, this can really score a big win.  Here’s the one I’ve been using from Sephora-

Sephora Collection Buildable Cover Complexion Kit ($22) 3)  Tinted Lipbalm.  You may not want to let your husband borrow it, but how easy is this?  Your lips are dry, should you buy plain old Blistex?  Nah.  I’d upgrade to a little Burt’s Bees and add a touch of color to your day.    I suggest buying three.  One for the car, one for your purse, one for your makeup drawer.  (How quickly are these things lost anyway?)

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm $7 4)  Tweezers.  These little babies can rock your world.  Trust me.  If you have never had your eyebrows plucked, waxed, threaded, etc., you are missing out on a HUGE beauty factor.  Shaping your eyebrow gives your face such a polished look and they also highlight all of your features.  Do not underestimate the power of the brow.  They are totally expressive and well worth keeping up.  I don’t own these, but if I needed some new ones, these would be a first round pick-

Tweezerman Gel Grip Slant Tweezer from Target $22 5)  Whitening Toothpaste.  We aren’t even talking about white stripes here people.  But it’s the little things that make a different.  My teeth take a beating (too much coffee, wine, chocolate) and your smile is so important!  A whitening toothpaste not only makes your mouth feel fresh and clean, but lessens the effects of your guilty pleasures! Total touchdown.

Crest Pro-Health Whitening Gel Toothpaste $4.25 at Wal-Mart Now that you know the five basic but oh so important beauty superbowl winners, write me and tell me what you won’t walk out the door without!
