Favorite Make Up and Hair Products - Share Our Lives

April 8, 2024


Hi friends.  This month for the Share Our Lives 2024 link-up, they are discussing our Favorite Make Up and Hair Products.

I am sharing at Joanne's blog, so let's take a look at what makeup and hair products I like to use daily.

These are some of the products I use for my hair:

I use this all-in-one spray after I shampoo my hair.  It works great as a de-tangler for my hair.

Next I use this thickening spray in my hair.  My hair is thin and this seems to add in volume and make my hair look thicker.  I've been using this product for years.  I then blow dry my hair with a Conair round brush blow dryer.

I like to use this hair spray for my hair.  This hair spray makes my hair stay in place.  It doesn't make my hair feel sticky.  I usually buy this hair spray in a large can and a two pack from BJs.

I usually shampoo my hair every other day.  If my hair looks flat the day after I wash it I will add in this texture spray to my hair.  It makes my hair look fuller.

If I don't wash my hair the next day I will use a hot curling brush for my hair.  It's from Calista Tools.  This tools works great for my hair and it adds body and volume. 

Here is a list of the makeup products I like to use:
  • Concealer - Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser - #121
  • I like to use this during the spring/summer on my face: Maybelline Dream Urban Cover-full coverage protective makeup-sunscreen SPF 50 - #120 Classic Ivory - I also sometimes use NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop Powder Foundation - Natural
  • Eyeshadow - For everyday wear I use - Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color - Rosegold.  I also like to use an eye shadow palette from Huda Beauty - Nude Light.
  • Blush - Milani Baked Powder Blush - #03 Berry Amore
  • Eyeliner - NYX Retractable Eyeliner - Golden Olive
  • Eye Lash Curler from Sephora
  • Mascara - Maybelline Sky High - Black.  I also like to use Essence Lash Princess Curl & Volume Mascara - Black 
  • These are my three favorite eye brow pencils - NYX Precision Brow Pencil - Blonde, Anastasia Brow Wiz - Blonde,  No7 Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil - Blonde
  • Lip Liner - NYX retractable lip liner - Nectar
  • Lipsticks - NYX Lip Lingerie - Bedtime Flirt, Revlon Colorstay Matte Lite Crayon - Take Flight
If I am going to the gym I will wear concealer, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick.  I do not use foundation if I am going to do a workout at the gym.  If I am at home I will wear concealer, eyeliner, and mascara.  Sometimes I do not wear any makeup if I am not going out and I want to give my face a break from wearing makeup.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my favorite products I use on a daily basis.

  1. I just bought that concealer to replace my Clinique one that was discontinued. I hope it works well for me. I’m glad to hear that you like it. Thanks for sharing!! Oh and happy eclipse day!! Earthquakes and eclipses it’s been quite a month here hasn’t it! Almost makes me miss the snow…almost!! 🤣🫣

  2. Thank you for sharing all of these products. I will check out some of the hair thickening and texturizing sprays. I am looking through your make up picks too. I've been wearing a lot less makeup lately, even when I go out. I usually just use tinted moisturizer with sunscreen and some lip color most days.

  3. I use that same hairspray and I am so glad to hear about that thickening spray since I tend to have very fine hair.

  4. Love all your product choices. I am looking for a new concealer so thank you for the info. Happy New Week. Hugs. Kris

  5. Thanks for sharing....I have to try that Dryspun texture spray. I have thin hair as well, and I use a product called Thickr by Rusk. I find it at a good price at Marshalls or TJ Max. Just bought a new concealer....will have to try your suggestion ! Have a great week !

  6. I use Tresemme hairspray too, but the pump one. Thanks for sharing your favorite products, Julie. I’m just sitting here waiting on the eclipse! Have a great week.

  7. This link up is making me think that I need to look into some options to deal with my hair on Day 2 of no shampoo. The texture spray sounds interesting!

  8. I love the sound of that thickening spray, the older I get the thinner my hair is getting. I need something like that.

  9. Great products Julie. A good concealer is key. My hair is also thinner. I have eye lash extensions for now, so I don’t need mascara,

  10. Good recommendations! Visiting from #HappyNow (and if Jen sees this, your firewall blocks my comments)

  11. So many great products. Thanks for linking up with us!

  12. I have super thick hair. A blessing and a curse. No need for thickening but I do try to wash every other day and like to spray something on the odd days.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comments always make me happy.
