Must Have Beauty Products

Even if your bathroom is overflowing with beauty supplies and makeup and looks like a department store cosmetic counter, I'm sure there are a handful of products you can't live without. Over the years I feel like I've tried just about everything whether it's drugstore brand or designer. Here are the beauty products I always keep close by.
No creasing or clumping like a lot of other primers. Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion is the only product I've ever used that keeps my eyeshadow looking amazing all day long. A lot of products say they're long lasting, but this one actually means it. Their All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray is another must! 

Kiehl's Ultimate Hand Salve
Seriously, who wants dry cracked hands? Definitely not me. That's why I love Kiehl's Ultimate Hand Salve. It nourishes hands without leaving them feeling greasy and the fragrance isn't overpowering like most hand lotions. This is one product I always carry with me, especially while traveling and during the winter months.

Clinique Brush-On Cream Eyeliner
I've never found a pencil liner that lasted all day and I'm still terrified of most liquid liners. Cream eyeliner is the best of both worlds. It's easy to apply, doesn't drip and you get a long lasting, waterproof and dramatic look. I absolutely love Clinique's Brush-On Cream Liner.  I've also recently started using NYX's Super Fat Eye Marker and it may become a new favorite.

Rosebud Salve
If you want to cure cracked chapped lips or if you just want super soft lips Rosebud Salve is amazing and unlike Carmex, it smells great. The vintage style tin is adorable and you can even use the salve on dry skin or sunburns. This stuff never leaves my handbag! 

Cetaphil is definitely one of the products I could absolutely never live without. It's extremely gentle and great for all skin types. My dermatologist first introduced me it years ago and I haven't used another cleanser since. Another reason I love their cleanser is because you can use it as a makeup remover without water and in a pinch I've used instead of shaving cream.

I always keep a small bottle of evian Facial Spray in my makeup bag and in my purse. Along with Cetaphil, this is one I can not live without. It refreshes and hydrates your skin and lives with you with a slight dewy glow. It's especially great to have in your carry-on for long flights to stay refreshed. 

What about you? What are some of your beauty must haves?
