The moment you start reading Alex Yeske’s dreams + jeans blog, you know one thing for sure: the girl has excellent taste. Musing on everything from fashion to beauty to design, the recent Syracuse grad has a knack for spotting pretty things — a skill that no doubt serves her well in her day job as a graphic designer for Madewell. This week, we’re lucky enough to have her guest blogging for us about everything from her beauty must-haves to how to get the perfect blow dry.
I love trying out new products (who doesn’t?) and love it even more when I find something amazing to add to my daily routine. These are my essential every day products, and I can’t imagine life without them.
Laura Mercier Eyeliner in Stormy Grey: I love the color of this eyeliner — it’s perfect for every day and isn’t too harsh a contrast against my fair skinr.
Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara: I love mascara and discovered this one earlier in the summer. It makes my lashes look long and full and works just as well for day as it does for a night out.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose: I’m starting to wear more lip stuff now and this lip tint has been the perfect transition product for me. It’s super moisturizing, smells fabulous, and gives a nice sheer application of color.
Clinique Superdefense Moisturizer: I’ve been using this lotion for over five years! It’s a great moisturizer and I love that it has SPF 25 in it.
Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline : My signature scent. Enough said.
Living Proof Shampoo and Conditioner: I actually just started using this a week ago and have already added it to my must-haves. It leaves my hair soft, silky, and frizz-free.
Another major essential? These towelettes.
