Every woman has her secrets, tricks, and habits. As ladies go I am extremely low maintenance—I hate blow drying my hair (it's too thick and thus drying takes forever), prefer a t-shirt and jeans to heels any day, and can only stand the most basic of beauty routines.Because of that, I make a serious effort to find products that are simple to apply/use but still make you look and feel lovely. Just in case you are looking for some inspiration (maybe in time for Valentine's Day?) here are some of my can't-live-without beauty products.
