“If you, like me, are a victim of oily skin, having a handy compact of pressed powder in your purse is an essential at ALL times. I recently found one that’s the perfect shade. It comes in a wide rage of colors so you’ll find a shade that matches you AND equally important — the powder is light enough to look totally natural and matte enough to keep way the shinies. So try my recommendation: Lancome’s Translucent Powder.

“Not only does Ted style the strands of some of the biggest names in Hollywood — he also has a genius line of products. I love these sheets because they’re portable and I never have to worry about an oily serum leaking in my bag. They tame frizz no matter where I am!”
“In the winter my skin gets SO dry and it’s so hard to find a lightweight moisturizer that doesn’t feel heavy — but that’s exactly why I love this product! Whether I put it on before I go to bed or in the morning under makeup, it hydrates my skin and I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything.”
“Lorac Wet/Dry Powder is a great, light powder to use every day — even when you’re being lazy about your makeup, which I totally am. It easily smooths out your complexion and tone and leaves you looking great. Plus, it’s not heavy at all and is easy even on my sensitive skin!”
“My love of Yves Rocher’s I <3 My Planet shampoo is two-fold. Not only
did it make my product-laden hair feel smooth as a baby kangaroo (fun
fact: they're born hairless), but it also made me feel good to know I
was doing something good for the environment. It almost made up for
the fact that I took a 20-minute shower."
“As a girl-on-the-go, I definitely need makeup that fits my busy lifestyle. With four blendable eyeshadows superb for touch-ups, a date-ready lip gloss for nights out AND a long-lasting, work-appropriate lipstick in one compact, ybf’s perfect fit is… well, a perfect fit!”
