Just in time for Black Friday holiday shopping, we’re back with Marta Walsh of Talking Makeup, one of America’s top beauty and fashion blogs. Each month, Marta brings us her beauty tricks and top picks for looking lovely everyday.
L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation: It feels super light on the face yet it covers all imperfection on the skin perfectly, like ‘Magic’. But the best thing about this foundation is that it’s so matte you can even skip a face powder, which is un-heard-of with some other brand foundations which normally leave my skin oily, shiny, and greasy.
Pureology Hydrate: This hair care line is probably one my favorites and the one I’ve been using for years now. Check the gift version just in time for the holiday which includes shampoo, conditioner, free headband and full-size hairspray. Also look out for the NEW Redken All Soft with NEW Interlock Protein Network another classic.
Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic 4000i Hair Dryer: I use this dryer to get my hair very straight. It’s smaller than traditional hair dryers, but works great even on long and thick hair like mine. In fact, I find it much easier to control than big sized hair dryers. AMAZE.
GHD flat iron and Hana Titanium Professional Ceramic Flat Iron With Tourmaline are my favorire flat irons or styling irons. They make my hair smooth and straight as if I just stepped out of the salon. I don’t always splurge on shampoo & conditioner, but I do always invest in the best styling tools for that perfect blow-out. Both make perfect gifts.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream: This affordable eye cream is available at the local drugstore and it’s fabulous. The buzz word is ‘Accelerated Retinol SA’ which means less product usage + faster results. Another plus, it absorbs immediately to the tender under eye skin, without leaving a white residue which some eye creams tend to do.
