5 Beauty Essentials I Can't Live Without.

Post sponsored by Mirum. Opinions are 100% my own.

 Being a busy Mom and beauty girl at heart, I have an arsenal of beauty products.

While my beauty closet may be running over, I keep a small number of beauty essentials out on my vanity that I depend on to get me through my day. 

These 5 beauty essentials are my tried and true beauty products that are at the heart of my beauty routine. Whether I am staying in, running errands, going out with the girls, or heading to the gym, these are the beauty essentials that are always part of my daily routine.

1. Eyebrow Pencil
I plan on getting my brows microbladed soon and I am very excited about that. Until then, my sparse brows need help.

I use an eyebrow pencil to fill in my brows and frame my face even if I'm not wearing a full face of makeup. 

2. Concealer
Whether or not I am wearing makeup, I always dab on a bit of concealer under my eyes to look awake and fresh.

My skin is pretty even thanks to some laser work that I've had done, so with the help of the right concealer in the right spots, I am good to go with my favorite concealer.

3. Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant
Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant is my savior and I CANNOT start any day without it. With the warmer weather here and the fact that I am on-the-go now more than ever, this beauty essential is needed now more than ever.

When I am heading to the gym or know that I am going to meeting up with my personal trainer in the park, I like to use Degree Women Antiperspirant Deodorant in the UltraClear Black + White Pure Clean Dry version. This dry spray goes on instantly dry for a cleaner feel plus it protects me against both sweat and body odor all day long. I love the fact that I can wear my black or white tees and never have to worry about white marks or yellow stains either. BONUS!

For every day, I use a variety of the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorants. The new Sheer Cool version is my latest fave.

I am confident wearing ANYTHING when I use Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant. From my LBD to my satin cami or plain tank tops, I never worry.  This dry spray antiperspirant is invisible on 100 different colors.

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant sprays on instantly dry, and with up to 48 hours of long-lasting odor and wetness protection, I know that I will smell good all day. I never worry about white marks or sweat stains; that is a thing of the past. Once I made the switch to a dry spray, that is. 

I even have all the guys in my house convinced that Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorants are the best for them, too. I bought the new AXE Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant for men in GOLD ORIGINAL for my boys and my husband uses Degree Men Antiperspirant Deodorant in the UltraClear Black + White Fresh version. 

I always pick up my Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant at CVS, where I shop for the rest of my beauty essentials, too. There are literally SO many options at CVS, but once you narrow it down to a Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant from a brand like AXE, Dove or Degree, you can be confident in your decision. 

When you shop at CVS now through 5/19, you are even going to score some great deals on my essential Dry Spray Antiperspirant Deodorants. I'll be stocking up. 

Select Degree, Dove, and AXE Deodorant products are Buy One, Get One 50% off with your CVS ExtraCare Card. PLUS, when you spend Spend $15 on Degree, Dove, ore AXE Deodorant products, you will get $5 ExtraBucks when you use your ExtraCare card. 

4. Moisturizer
My skin is naturally dry and I cannot start my day (or finish it, for that matter) without slathering it with moisturizer.

I change my moisturizer each season and CVS is stocked with literally hundreds of them.

5. Lip Balm
Just as my skin is dry, I swear my lips are always dry or chapped year round; I just might be a lip balm addict.

I am constantly buying a new lip balm every time I am in CVS, and smoothing it on my lips. When I am not wearing lipstick, I have lip balm on my lips. I even apply a light layer of lip balm to my lips before I apply lipstick.
