Our Top Five Beauty Must-Haves

We’re all about a quick and easy beauty routine. But we’ll be honest, sometimes that comes with a price. Today we’re sharing our five essential beauty products, that aren’t cheap by any means, but they work wonders in our daily routine. If you’re looking for five products that last a long time, and can give you that effortless girl-on-the-go look in minutes, these are for you.

1. La Mer – Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream
Call me crazy, but yes this moisturizer is 100% worth the splurge. It will cost you $85 for a .5 oz jar, but the second you try it you’ll be addicted. I’ve had the 2 oz jar for over a month and I’ve only gone through about a quarter of it so far. You only need to use a tiny bit, but you will notice the difference almost immediately. (Available HERE)

2. IT Cosmetics – Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer
We’re huge concealer snobs, and we can pretty much find something to complain about with every type of concealer – except for this one. At $24, this super-thick concealer hides every flaw and dark circle with ease. Using a beauty blender, blend a tiny dot of the concealer on to your under eye area. Add a little bit of translucent powder using a concealer brush to give your look a flawless finish. (Available HERE)

3. Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara
The name says it all. This is by far our favorite mascara of all time. Yes, each tube is $23, which made us skeptical, but we promise, every it’s worth every dime. You get perfectly full and thick lashes every single time. We’ve each been asked multiple times when wearing this mascara if we’re wearing fake lashes. (Available HERE)

4. bareMinerals – Blemish Remedy Foundation
This powder foundation basically buffs your skin, and completely hides any blemishes or imperfections. It basically gives you that air-brushed look without having to get your makeup done professionally. Be sure to try out the different shades of this foundation against your skin – Mikki wears “clearly medium 04” and Julianna wears “clearly nude 07.” (Available HERE)

5. bareMinerals – Illuminating Mineral Veil
Even when we’re just running a quick errand, we still always apply a little bit of this illuminating powder. It gives you a perfect glow and highlight without making it look like you spent 20 minutes contouring. It’s incredibly light, and can even be used when you want to “bake” your concealer.
