Here are some of her must haves for staying together while juggling a busy life. You also can check out some of her favorite finds on the LTK app (gabriellegerose).
1. MESS-FREE SUN-KISSED GLOW
There’s just something about getting a sun-kissed glow without having to step into the sun. I do love a boost every now and then, especially when I’m getting ready for a big event. I have tried so many products, but I love Tan Towel Self Tan Towelettes ($30, tantowel.com) because they are mess-free wipes that smell clean.
2. INSTANTLY AWAKEN TIRED EYES
I am not really a coffee drinker, so nothing wakes me up quite like popping on eye masks in the morning. I store my Arbonne Awakening Gold-Colored Eye Masks ($51, arbonne.com) in the fridge and love how they instantly cool me off and awaken tired eyes.
3. SUPER-LIGHT, MOISTURIZING SUNSCREEN
This is truly a case of you should listen to your mother. It is so important to wear sunscreen every day, and I wish I had found Skin Pharm 100% Mineral Tinted SPF ($60, skinpharm.com) sooner. I love that this is a super light, moisturizing base that I can wear under my makeup or by itself.
4. THE HOLY GRAIL OF CONCEALERS
It may sound cliché, but Tarte Shape Tape Concealer ($31, tartecosmetics.com) really is the holy grail of concealers on most beauty lists. I love the coverage it gives and how it can truly brighten up your face.
5. CALLING ‘DIBS’ ON THIS BRONZER STICK
Cream products can scare some people, but I’m calling “dibs” on DIBS Desert Island Duo Blush/Bronzer Stick (from $36, revolve.com). I have multiple shades of the Desert Island Duos and carry one of these with me pretty much wherever I go. It’s amazing how seamlessly the blush and bronzer blend for a polished look.
6. A MASCARA THAT GIVES VOLUME, LENGTH AND CURL
Mascara ties any look together and can stand alone when you need an on-the-go boost. I especially love the Tarte Maneater Mascara ($25, ulta.com). This product focuses on volume, length and extreme curl, which really opens up your eyes.
7. SMOOTH, BUTTERY LIPSTICK
I’ve been using Kevyn Aucoin lipstick (from $32, kevynaucoinbeauty.com) for years, and can’t say enough about the smooth, buttery application. There are so many great colors for everyday wear, but I love Bloodroses when I want to kick it up a notch.
8. BEST HAIR BOOST FOR A MOM ON THE GO
I have become a huge Kevin Murphy fan, and as a mom on the go, I live for the Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair Dry Shampoo and Shimmer Shine Mist ($36 and $35, kevinmurphy.com). when I need a boost.
