Please tell me some of you are like me - I don't always have myself totally together when I get plopped into my desk chair on a Monday morning. I have a few things stashed away in my desk that while I am on my first morning phone call, I can use these quick pieces to polish my look. Here are my desk drawer essentials:
1) It Cosmetics Color Correcting Radiance Palette - This little dream fixes everything. Matte Bronzer gives warmth to your complexion, slimming contours, eye shadow base and can even out darker skin tones. The blush is perfect for a color lift on the cheeks or nice pink tint to eyelids. The Brightening finishing powder is my favorite little secret. I just wakes up your complexion and gives you a work appropriate glow (rather than disco fever glitter face).
2) Rimmel London Wonderlash - it is a relatively cheap mascara but for me it curls and lengthen and never never clumps!! Finally! I think its the argan oil in the mascara that keeps it from clumping. Eyes open up instantly.
3) Sabon Hand Cream - I swear this is just better hand cream. Great light smell. I like Green Valley but there are lots of others that work so well and then also give a great fragrance if you did not have time to get perfume applied in the morning.
4) GNC Chewable Probiotics - some day I will go through my pill routine with you but I am not sure you know me well enough to be prepared for that novel of all the things I take. Let's just leave it at this - my mother was a hippie and I have lots of things from mother earth I take every day. But if by chance I missed getting my pills in the morning this is my always go to - a Probiotic. They help create good gut bacteria to ward off anything the office throws at you and helps digestion, regularity, etc. I swear by them and I like these chewable tables if I don't have water handy.
