Thank you Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

Coming off the heels of one holiday after the next, our civil ceremony and now the New Year, can you imagine what’s been running through my mind? Of course, the rush of excitement, late nights and anticipation is all part of the fun, but it also means lack of sleep or on other nights, virtually cheersing with a glass of wine or two to friends. Therefore, the need to stay rejuvenated and more on top of my beauty regimen has become a priority more than ever. Again, it’s nothing complicated as I don’t have time for anything super-extensive, but over the years I’ve managed to perfect my beauty routine simply by discovering the right products. This alone has helped me care for my skin and do my makeup with minimal effort — while maintaining a lasting impact.

Why complicate it? From a rich must-have moisturizer to the perfect lip tint, scroll to see my 10 absolute favorite beauty products that will simplify your beauty routine. All of which can be found at Nordstrom, a perfect destination to restock up on or refine your beauty products for the New Year!

Best Face Oil: “The Precious Oil” by Caudalie

Confession: I get spray tans quite a bit. Because of this, my skin tends to be fairly dry, which is why I’ve been using this French beauty favorite twice daily (for years now!): Caudalie’s Precious Oil. Not only is it 100% natural and lightweight, it leaves behind the prettiest glow. I’m not sure another serum can compare as it even makes for a great facial massage oil. 

Best Moisturizer: “La Creme” by Cle de Peau Beaute 

In the evenings, I double up on moisturizing, starting with a layer of Caudalie’s Precious Oil followed by La Creme by Cle de Peau Beaute aka “the crown jewel of the skincare world.” It’s definitely the most expensive beauty product I own, but I’ve been using it for 2+ years and can say its steep price is worth the investment! Afterwards, I’ll top things off by applying Cle de Peau Beaute’s Enhancing Eye Contour Cream Supreme — I consider it the best cure for tired (or puffy) eyes. 

Best Primer: “Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer” by Laura Mercier 

By now, you can see how important hydration is to me. I love nothing more than fresh, dewy skin with little to no makeup (or the “no makeup, makeup look”). In order to achieve this look every time, I apply a thin layer of this lightweight primer to my skin before any ounce of makeup. I can always rely on it to amp up the glow and create the complexion I wish I naturally possessed! I love how it locks in my makeup without having to layer on an additional finishing spray (which sometimes makes my skin super dry).

Best Tinted Moisturizer: “Touche Eclat All-in-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 23” by Yves Saint Laurent

This hydrating, medium-coverage tinted moisturizer makes your skin glow while blurring spots, lines and wrinkles! It’s the perfect replacement to any heavy foundation, yet provides moderate coverage than the typical tinted moisturizer. Added bonus: there’s SPF protection included. 

*To really light things up, I’ll add a bit of Touche Eclat All-Over Brightening Pen, it’s super blendable with the perfect amount of glow — without being overbearing. 

Best Eyebrow Gel: “Legendary Brows” by Charlotte Tilbury 

Some people can’t leave the house without their lipgloss. I can’t leave the house without my brow gel! Since “brows are the pillars of our face,” and I have thick wiry brows, it’s important I use a gel to create that full look, texture and to hold everything in place. Did I mention I love how precise the spoolie is? It provides realistic hairlike strokes making it even more natural looking.

Best Mascara: “Diorshow” by Dior 

Maybe I’m biased, but I’ve been using this mascara since highschool, and in terms of volume, length and curl (without the clumping!), this one is a clear winner. It builds and layers on my thin lashes so evenly and consistently — reasons why it tops the charts year after year. If you’re looking for a more impactful 24-hour curl, apparently Dior came out with an even better version called “Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara” that Nordstrom can hardly keep in stock! 

Best Lip Tint: “Lip Tattoo” by Dior 

Dior’s lip tint went viral after multiple top beauty influencers claimed it lasted under a mask and didn’t smudge. I grabbed “451” (a light coral) to give it a try. Verdict? I love it. The “Lip Tattoo” definitely lives up to its name and doesn’t smudge! 

Best Cheek Tint: “A-Blush” by Giorgio Armani 

Lips aren’t the only thing you have to worry about smudging under a mask, cheeks are just as important. The A-Blush cheek tint provides the smallest hint of color making you appear rosey and flush (I wear the “30”). Because it’s water-based it blends so beautifully!

Best Red Lipstick: “So Red” by Charlotte Tilbury (formerly “So Marilyn”)

This lipstick is my number-one-cannot-live-without red. I’m very particular about the color red, it can’t be too warm or too cool, and this one is a darker red with a warm undertone giving off the perfect old-Hollywood hue. The staying power of this lipstick is also incredible! 

Best Makeup Remover: “Demaquillant Yeux Intense” by Chanel 

Because sleeping with your makeup on is an absolute crime — even if the mascara has a 24-hour long lasting formula — you’ll want a gentle and hydrating eye makeup remover to transform your routine. Of all the ones I’ve tried, the “Demaquillant Yeux Intense” by Chanel  has become the one I rely on most! It doesn’t leave an oily residue and feels so refreshing after a long day. 

From skincare to makeup, there’s always going to be the latest trends and buzziest beauty brands with new launches, but I like to think that if it’s quality then it’s also timeless…even in beauty. Simply put, there are certain beauty products that will never go “out of style” as they’ve firmly held their grounds as perennial favorites (like my 10 favorites from Nordstrom). It’s all about finding the right ones for you (and your #shelfies)! Plus, Nordstrom makes it so easy to order online, there’s no need to schlep to the store if you don’t want to during the holiday rush…
