I’m pretty much a beauty product junkie! I have loved makeup and products since I was a young girl playing in my mom’s cosmetics drawer. I constantly try new products in all categories from bubble baths to beauty balms and everything in between. I’ve learned tips and tricks from some of the top makeup artists in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas, and can’t wait to share my favorites with you.

I recently hosted a “True Beauty” lesson for a group of younger girls. We talked about what true beauty means and where it comes from. True beauty radiates from within you: strength, dignity, confidence, and a servant’s heart. It’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul. But since all of us feel better and are more confidently beautiful when we also have a pretty face, we utilized basic products that enhanced their natural beauty, giving them a sense of being confident in their own skin.

Here is my list of basic “tried and true” essential products:
