My Picks: Beauty Obsessions

A selection of my beauty stand-bys. All are available at Sephora except for the Morrocan Oil, which you can purchase at Lilliana’s Hair Studio and other nice salons.

1. Boscia, luminizing black mask

This stuff is amazing. It is completely black, so you look a little crazy after you apply it but it dries within thirty minutes and you can peel it off – so all the gunk sitting on top of your pores just comes right off. I like to use it if I’ve been traveling or had a week full of events to which I wore a lot of make-up.

2.Moroccan oil

This product had a cult following for years but it’s become pretty mainstream. it’s kind of pricey but a little goes a long way. I like to work a drop or two into the ends of my hair (while it’s still damp) and let it air dry. A great de-tangler and amazing for split ends.

3. Clarisonic Mia

I could not live without this. The brush head oscillates so it really cleans deep into your skin. Plus, it works on a timer so you wash your face for a full minute. I use it at night, usually with a gentle cleanser (like the one that comes with it) and once a week, with an exfoliating wash.

4. Korres, evening primrose eye cream

Another favorite. I use it during the day and every night. A life-saver for dark-circles and the smile lines that are starting to appear now that I’m in my late twenties.

5. Nars bronzing oil

Again, an investment product. But one that I only use when I’m going to a special event or a need to make my skin look a little glossy. A little goes a long way.

6.Josie Maran blush

This blush, like all of Josie’s products, contains argan oil, so it helps protect your skin. I love the color (it’s very deeply- pigmented) and the packaging is so glam.
