Waterproof-Makeup-Image.jpgThere’s nothing worse than sweating off your perfectly made up face. Whether you’re a full face makeup kind of girl or you just like a little lip or eye action, this is a roundup of the best waterproof makeup around.

Victoria’s Secret VS Voluptuous Volume Mascara
We love the chubby brush and the ease with which the product seems to glide right onto the lashes.

With 11 shades to choose from, ranging from light taupe to purple and even green, this concealer does everything from conceal blemishes to hide dark undereye circles.

Gorgeous shades, hints of sparkle, a quick-drying formula and a thin tip to draw the most accurate line ever. What’s not to love?

For the ‘Total Recall’ premiere actress McKenzie Westmore pulled of one of my favorite eye makeup combinations. A shimmery pink lid paired with a thin eyeliner and thick, lush lashes. This is one of those great combos that works day or night (simply tame down the mascara for daytime). To copy her shadow look for pink, shimmery, loose powder shadows like Bare Escentuals’s bareMinerals Eyecolor in Vanilla Sugar or MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Powder in Pink Gold. Achieving her precision-perfect lined eyes requires a steady hand (translation: practice) and a thin tipped brush with liquid liner, my fave is Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. Lastly for mascara you want a formula that ensure you will get every last lash, so look to one like Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes.
Bliss-Lemon-Sage-Supershine-Shampoo.jpgWant hair that’s super shiny and smells amazing to boot? Pick up a bottle of Bliss Lemon + Sage Supershine Shampoo.

We’ve long been fans of this shampoo because it adds luster and makes our hair gleam. This is due to wheat proteins and provitamin B5, which even work to make hair less static-y. Perfect during the winter months when no amount of conditioner and heat styling get rid of the static electricity our hair seems to attract—but equally as wonderful in the summer when all you want is shiny, frizz-free locks no matter how humid the day might be.

Truth be told, part of the reason we love going to any Bliss Spa (aside from the amazing treatments, of course) is the opportunity to stand under the vichy shower and use the sweet-smelling shampoo! Oh, and the lemon and sage scent? Absolutely, utterly divine.

Bliss Lemon + Sage Supershine Shampoo retails for $18 at
My poor hair was beginning to show signs of wear and split ends from my adoration for how it looks after I blow dry it. And I was beginning to show signs of stress and fatigue from worrying about my hair. That is until I found L’Oreal Paris EverSleek Precious Oil Treatment. This stuff is a wonder product! I generally use one to two little drops after blow drying to help add moisture and shine to my hair. But I have also used it on damp hair when I didn’t plan to blow dry and been happy with the results. It doesn’t wear my hair down, I avoid the roots and apply it only to ends, and it leaves my hair silky smooth and very shiny.
