1. Keratin Complex Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo is perfect for maintaining your Keratin Treatment, however it is also great for hair that may not be keratin-treated. This shampoo and conditioner has some keratin in it, as well as it's sulfide and sulfate-free. It makes hair shiny, smooth and definitely helps with maintaining frizz.
Comes in regular, and color-protect!
2. Shiseido Mascara Base
Sick of curling your eyelashes then applying mascara, only to notice a few hours later, they are uncurled already?! I can't stand that! This is the mascara base you need! Right after curling your lashes, apply this base all over lashes, as if it's mascara - it's white though, so you have to apply mascara over it. It will keep your lashes curled all day long! It's perfect to use before any mascara brand you use on a daily basis!
3. Smith's Rosebud Salve
Got dry lips? Buy Smith's Rosebud Salve, or Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm - those are my two favorites - but any of them are good! Whenever you feel chapped lips coming on, or just when you don't want to wear lipstick or lip gloss, they keep your lips hydrated, and taste good also! Some of the flavors are available in tubes as well - which are better in the summer because you don't want the pots to melt in your purse.

4. A Foundation Brush
Above are the MAC #190 Foundation Brush and the Shiseido Foundation Brush - both phenomenal! However, I am saying that a foundation brush, in general, is a favorite of mine (these are two that I use often). When you apply your foundation with a brush, instead of your fingers or a sponge, you use less product and you'll notice the coverage is much better. Apply a powder over to set it, and you're done!

5. Giada's Smoked Salmon BLT
Ok, so this is not beauty-related, or DIY-related - but food is a big part of my life - I love it! This sandwich is not only amazingly good, but it's on the healthier side too! Multi-Grain bread toasted with tomato, a strip of bacon, arugula, smoked salmon and a lemon-dill mayo, is so delicious you'll want to have these ingredients on hand at all times. It is also SO EASY to make!
*Don't like salmon? Make the sandwich without it, and you'll have a healtheir version of a BLT =)
