Hi there! My name is Danielle; I am a wedding hair & makeup artist. Kristen asked me to share with you guys a few of my favorite & easy go to makeup products! Whether you are rushing out the door or going out on a date these clean & simple makeup essentials are my must haves.  

I love refreshing my face in the morning & prepping it correctly before I start doing my makeup. This rose water is my favorite it has so many great vitamins and is all natural. I will spray this on my skin throughout the day if I need a refreshing & it always does the trick. This product retails for $30 & you can get it at Planet Beauty or on janeiredale.com!

I have been in love with Josie Maran's products since she first came out with her Argan oil & body butters. So I was so excited when she came out with her foundation line & it has not disappointed! It leaves skin fresh and dewy, is extremely light weight but also buildable if you are needing that bit of extra coverage.  If you haven't heard of her products, they are a must try! Especially with the transitioning of seasons & drier weather, her products are so hydrating & your skin will be thanking you! You can get this from josiemaran.com or Sephora for $45.

Another Josie Maran product I can't live without is her incredible new lipgloss line. It is so creamy, light weight, & comes in a variety of shades to suite any skin tone. My lips stay hydrated all day & her colors are so flattering! This is my favorite gloss to use on brides as it is extremely long lasting & is hydrating because of her Argan oil that is mixed into the formula. You can get this at JosieMaran.com during the holidays!
