3. Slip Silk Pillowcase - Alot of people swear by silk pillowcases and I'm ready to pull the trigger on this one! Traditional pillowcases damage delicate skin and hair over time. Silk is more gentle on your skin and hair as it is natural, hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows skin to breathe.

It’s super easy to remove makeup, cleanse, and tone all in one with micellar water and that’s why this item is on my top 10 list. The formula is made by organic grape water, chamomile extract, and plant glycerin. It’s also a great item to throw into your gym bag and can use a cotton pad or hands to use.

Product Review: Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner

So those of you that know me personally know that 99.99% of the time I wear liquid eyeliner versus pencil eyeliner. I prefer liquid over pencil since it doesn't smudge and it pretty much lasts all day until I wipe it off with makeup remover.

Over the weekend I was on the hunt for a budget friendly liquid liner and found one that I really liked at Sephora. It's from the Sephora Collection and it's the Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush (retails for $11.00). The tip is super-fine so it doesn't draw a thick, messy line nor does it smudge. It's pretty much long lasting and the color is deep black and highly pigmented. I'm able to use it for both work and nights out.  For work I use a super thin line (as you can see in the second picture below) and then for night time I make a winged eye.
