Shampoo - Organix Moroccan Argan Oil. Is a MUST for dry hair.   

Conditioner - Organix Moroccan Argan Oil AND LaCoupe Orgnx Volumizing Conditioner (I alternate between the two). Both are musts for dry or damaged hair.  

Soap - Village Naturals Foaming Milk Bath/Body Wash. I LOVE the Vanilla scented wash. It smells good and is so soothing. I don't use bar soap.  

Facial Cleanser - Mary Kay Botanicals, Alba Coconut Milk Facial Wash, and Aveeno Positively Radiant. The MK Botanicals works best to hydrate my skin and just give me that clean feeling and gives me a radiant glow. Alba smells amazing, and makes my skin feel firm and cleansed. Aveeno is good for when my skin is looking a bit dull.

Toner - I don't use toner, since it drys out my skin.   

Body Lotion - Hemp Body Moiturizer for dry skin. My hair stylist actually recommended this to me when one day I went to get my hair done and my knuckles we dry and cracked. She told me to head of to Sally's and buy this and my dry skin would clear up in no time. The next day my skin was back to normal, plus it smells amazing. I swear by this stuff.   

Shaver - Satin Care Shave Gel with a touch of Olay. Before I started using this stuff (and the Olay razor to match it) I used to get ingrown hairs, dry skin, and razor bumps after shaving. Not any more!  

Facial Moisturizer - Mary Kay Botanicals, Alba Jasmine and Vitamin E Moisture Cream, Yes To! Cucumbers. The MK Botanicals is again, my favorite, as it moisturizes my skin the best.  I use the Alba moisturizer when I'm in the mood to use the cleanser I mentioned before. Yes To is my go to product whenever my skin is especially dry.   

Eye Cream - I'm not too big on eye creams too be honest. I've used Mary Kay Firming Eye Cream before, and I like that. Never dry out my eyes.  

Sunblock - Okay... I know I should but I don't really use sunblock unless I know I'll be in the sun a lot, and even then I sort of throw on whatever is in the house. The Primer I used to use (Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer) had SPF in it and so did the BB Cream I used to use.   

Deodorant - Alba Clear Enzyme (Tea Tree with baking soda and alpine lichen. NO ALUMINUM)   

Foundation - I used to use a BB Cream, but since it made my skin a little orange, I made the switch to Mary Kay Luminous Wear when I started selling their products. Usually when I get a foundation I find myself liking it...until it dry out my skin and makes me break out a few days later. I had that problem with Fit Me. I've been using the MK foundation for awhile and I still love it.   

Consealer - I believe I'm using the Fit Me consealer still. The only time I use consealer is if my eyes look especially dark in the morning.   

Eye Shadow - I LOVE Sephoras Pro Lesson: Smoky Eye Pallet, and it only costs $35 dollars when I bought it months ago. It is hands down my favorite eyeshadow.   

Eye Liner - I use Physican Formula for my stick line (the mechanical pencil) and on my upper lid I use Revelon Colorstay Gel Liner  

Blush - I like MAry Kay Mineral Blush and Physicans Formula blush as well. Both come in very pretty shades and go on evenly.   

Lip Liner - Not too big on lipliner, so whatever random drugstore brands I think are pretty.   

Lipstick/gloss - Loreal Infallible Lip Gloss/Color Sealer Duo. I used this stuff on my wedding day. The down side is that it CAN dry your lips out and sometimes the lip gloss looks cracked after it drys. Your lips have to be REALLY soft and moisturized. Loreal Color Riche Caresse. I've been on the search for the PERFECT pink for the longest time, and I finally found it in the Casresse lipsticks. As far as lips gloss goes I like Mary Kay lipgloss as well as Loreal Colour Riche LeGloss.  

Pressed Powder - I prefer loose powder.   

Loose Powder - Physicians Formula and Mary Kay loose Mineral Powder.   

Bronzer - I prefer not to use bronzer.
