Whoop!  Whoop!  I love these Show-and-Tell Tuesdays!  I’m joining Andrea today to tell you all about my beauty routine.  Growing up, I was not a girl who was super into make-up, lip glosses, and accessories but my, how the times have changed!  Today if you suggested a new mascara that makes your lashes twice as long, I’d probably rush out and get it this afternoon.  ha!

In case you’re new to the blog, you might not know I’m a Rodan + Fields Consultant.  Rodan + Fields was started by the same doctors who created Proactiv.  We have some AMAZING skincare.  Every day my routine starts and ends with this Redefine regimen.  The regimen contains a Daily Cleansing Mask, a Pore Minimizing Toner, a Triple Defense Treatment moisturizer, and an Overnight Restorative Cream moisturizer.  If you want to learn more about our products, e-mail me at

These are my favorite make-up products…
First I begin with YBF, Your Best Friend Face Primer.  I actually got a little sample in my Birchbox about a year ago and I’m STILL using the sample!!!

I love Tarte’s BB tinted moisturizer.  I wear this all year round.  It gives plenty of light coverage and doesn’t feel goopy and thick.

I use Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder.  For years and years I never used powder.  I think it’s because my face was always dry and powder seemed to bring out the worst.  But-thanks to R + F my skin is in great shape and this powder goes on smoothly!

A friend told me I should try Laura Geller’s Brighten Blush.  I gave it a go a few months ago and am in love.  I have really smart friends.  😉

For my eyes, I should be an Urban Decay sales rep.  🙂  I use the Urban Decay Eye Primer.  I go back and forth between the Naked Palette and the Naked3 Palette.  I top it all off with the Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eyeliner.

I finish off the eyes with They’re Real! Mascara.

I’m a big fan of Mac’s Viva Glam lipstick.  My favorite shade is Viva Glam II.

I mix the lipstick with lots of different lip glosses to give me different looks.  My favorite lip glosses as of today are these Buxom Lip Polishes.

EEK!!!  I can’t wait to get some new ideas.  I absolutely love trying out new make-up products.  Do you have any “I MUST TRY” products??  If so, PLEASE leave me a comment.  I’m looking forward to any new ideas!  Thanks, girls!!

    I went to Ulta yesterday to get my shampoo and conditioner (and I walked out with shampoo, conditioner, tan towels, OPI polish, a new round brush, and rollers). Oops. But as I stood in line, I almost added that mascara to my bag because it was on a display right by the line! Dangit! Now I wish I had.

    I've never heard of Buxom lip gloss before! I LOVE the redefine regimen…greatest part to me is that the day cream goes on GREAT under makeup and doesn't leave the little balls of product all over your face when you put on primer. 🙂 I also love the Tarte powder (and it lasts forever and the trampoline inside is amazing) and the Benefit Mascara. You need to go to Ulta and try the I.T. eyeliner (doesn't smudge or smear on me and everything seems to) and the eye brow color pot and brush…you know I have eye brow problems and this stuff works wonders…hahaha!

    Happy Tuesday friend!

    I LOOOVE this post!!!! I have been wanting to try that mascara for awhile…looks like I need to get it!! Could you tell me just a couple lip glosses you use with your lipstick?? I am terrible at mixing & matching makeup!!! I'm not sure any stores by me carry those glosses, so I'll have to order online & I hate ordering makeup online if I don't know what to get. HAHAHA!!!!

    Simple question about R+F
    Do you use the redefine regimen over the spring/summer? and then soothe regimen over the fall/winter?
    I am trying to define best way to combine both regimens because I love them both…

    Kiehl's ultimate strength hand salve is the best hand cream ever- given to me by a friend who washez her hands a bazillion times a day for work, and now im on my third bottle.

    My makeup favorite is Revlon color stay eyeliner in black brown – better than every dept store eyeliner I've tried!

    Love the product recommendations!

    Since you're a fellow Birchbox'er, you must try the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette #1. It is VERY similar to the naked 1. i have both and actually think I like the coastal one better! and you can't beat the 19.95 price!

    I like seeing your beauty products. I just published my post and mentioned the Revers regimen (I linked to your blog)! I still love it…thankful for skin care that helps with my sun damage. I think I'm going to try the Redefine regimen as well to see how it compares. 🙂 Thanks friend!

    Have you tried (or heard of) Younique?? They have an amazing mascara that makes your lashes look super long and thick! Their eye shadows are amazing as well. 🙂

    Painterly! Painterly! Painterly! MAC's cream eyeshadow that makes whatever you put on after it stick all day. But, it is THE perfect nude color that I also swipe under my eyes to act as a concealer. win win. Its the best and is a complete must-try/have in my opinion! (it comes in lots of other shades too, but 'painterly' has a huge following) Have you heard of it, Erika? Im curious what you'd think of it.

    If you love the Benefit They're Real! Mascara, try the Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling and Lifting Mascara. I recently went into Ulta to buy a new tube of They're Real and the sales lady recommended the new curling and lifting one. It's great!!!
