Amanda’s Top 5 beauty picks

#1 M.A.C Studio Finish Concealer SPF 15

When you start pulling all-nighters, studying for finals, believe me when I say that this first product becomes your BFF!

#2 M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation

Ladies, if it’s your TOM (Time of Month), you’re really stressed out and have breakouts, or you have some scars to cover, then miracles really do happen. If properly applied and if you have the right color, you can go from boring to beautiful with very little effort.

#3 Maybelline New York Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara

I have friends who claimed that no mascara on earth was capable of making their lashes long and luscious. I sure proved them wrong with this beauty product. This is the only one that can make you look like you have fake lashes, in a good way that is!

#4 Vichy Purete Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3-in-1

This product is pure magic. Not only does is it a cleansing milk and toning lotion, but it also removes makeup, INCLUDING heavy mascara. You can literally rub your eyes with this product and there will be no swelling, redness, or any type of burning sensation. You may momentarily look like a raccoon, but within seconds your face is clean. Rather than spending minutes removing makeup with cotton pads, this is a one step simple solution. After a late night out, you will be thankful to be able to wash it all off that quickly.

#5 Vichy Nutrilogie Levres Intensive Care for Dried Out Lips

I was on Acutane, and for those of you who know the slightest bit about this treatment, it really dries out your skin and lips. Basically, skin was peeling off my lips and the only lip treatment that worked was this one, and boy did it work. I still use is consistently even if my lips aren’t dry because it gives your lips a nice natural-looking shine to them without the over-the-top sparkles, that some glosses tend to have. Great therapy for your lips, especially during Canadian Winters!

These are my fab five, but are they good for my skin? Together we shall go through a step-by-step learning process and figure out how to replace potentially harmful beauty products for greener, healthier ones.
