When you live each day in workout gear, running from studio to street and back again. You need to have a simple skin/makeup regime that is going to help your face continue to glow from morning to night. 

I have tried going bare faced when teaching my classes and despite it making the most sense I just don't feel as on, as awake or as ready for work as I do when I put my face on. 

Here are some of my go to beauty essentials that not only help me to glow but also allow my skin to breathe when I am working out or teaching.

This is a new addition to my routine and I have fallen in love. Its a Vitamin C based serum which stimulates collagen production in your skin. You place it all over your face before you moisturize making sure the serum is fully absorbed before adding anything else. A small amount goes along way and I am still working my way though a 7ml sample a month later! 

KEIHLS - Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm
After trying many other different types of moisturizers I have come back to Kiehl's and love their new moisturizing balm. My skin definitely goes through stages of lacking in hydration and this product really helps to keep my skin hydrated all throughout the day. I love the way my skin feels dewy after using this product without leaving a tacky residue.

NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 30) in Terre-Neuve
This is my all time favorite tinted moisturizer and I have been using it for years. It is so light but still gives a little coverage & a tint to cover dark circles or blemishes. I literally use a pea sized amount and apply it over my face like a moisturizer. 

TWO FACED - Better Than Sex Mascara
What else do I need to say with a name like that! This is a great lengthening and volumizing mascara without breaking the bank.

NARS - The Multiple Stick in Copacabana
I get so many compliments about this highlighter. This is a great stick that can be used in multiple places on your face. I usually place some on my cheek bones and on certain days when I want to be really fancy on my eyelids instead of eyeshadow to give me an additional color and glow. 

FRESH - Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment (SPF 15)
My lips tend to really dry out when I am teaching and talking on the mic so I am always in search of new hydrating lip treatments. I love Fresh products, they just smell so good! This is a great lip treatment, soothing & hydrating + with SPF.  Fresh do a variety of shades in this lip tint but my trusty favorite is the Rose tint.

MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater
I am obsessed with this product that I randomly came across in Urban Outfitters. I spray this mist directly over my makeup to help it seal and i will always spray throughout the day for hydration and a mini 'pick me up' between teaching classes. It smells define and its so refreshing and the best part only $7.00!!! This has to be my skincare buy of the year!
