I came up with a short list of items that I have discovered this month that have helped my morning beauty routine with very minimal extra effort. Meaning, these products either save me time from previous products that I've used or I get the most bang for buck with time spent in the morning.
Where has this been all my life? I was given this little hair tool, which looks much like a flat iron with a little checkered pattern in the inside. Rootie creates natural looking texture and lift to the roots of your hair. It is designed to give your hair instant lift and lasting volume. I recommend using as a last step on dry and/or styled hair and you will get volume in minutes! Gently lift pieces of the top of your hair and clip to side. Then take small section of your hair underneath and apply the Rootie the Rootlifter.
Rootie enhances any hairstyle including short hair, ponytails, straight hair or curly hair. This tool was designed to replace messy hair teasing, ineffective hair volume products (extra product build-up no one needs). It's perfect to try on days your hair needs extra volume and oomph.
This is my new go-to contouring powder. It is not a bronzer, which can seem so unnatural when you go to contour your face. Instaglam Contouring powder gives a natural tone to my face and it is a universal shade that suits all skin tones. It's also a buildable contour powder allows for you to control the level of contouring, from a natural enhancement to a stronger contoured finish. You can create shadows under your cheekbone and under your jaw for killer cheekbones and defined jawline.
This product is every mama's dream. No hidden chemicals or toxins in Beautycounter's line up of makeup and skincare. This product is a quick solution for light coverage foundation that moisturizes and includes SPF 20 to protect you from the sun damage. This is an effortless product that I put on before I head out for the day. It also includes vitamin C to reduce the appearance of age spots and enhance skin brightness.
