Always impressed by her flawlessness and gorgeous makeup, we asked AnaOno Ambassador and beauty expert Anna Crollman from My Cancer Chic what her top 10 products of all time were. A Southern Belle with a heart of gold, she generously offered to blog about it just for us. Gorgeous makeup and beauty.
When it comes to beauty, there are a million products on the market, so how do you know which ones are worth your money (and are good for you, too)? These products, listed below, are definitely worth the investment and will help you create your ideal beauty look every day.
Always remember, however, that true beauty comes from within and makeup is just the icing on the cake. When you love yourself and take care of your mind, body and soul, that positivity will shine through.
What is it: Bright eyes, dewy skin, healthy hair - it all starts at the cellular level. OLLY Undeniable Beauty chewables contain a blend of biotin, borage oil and powerful antioxidants to help you look your best 24/7. I start my day off with these gummies each morning.
Improve hair and nail strength
Delicious grapefruit taste
Perfect amount of biotin to help with hair growth without causing breakouts
What is it: A luxurious eye cream enriched with diamond dust and a special blend of minerals to impart a subtle, soft-focus luminescence to the delicate eye area. I started with a sample size of this eye cream, and now I am hooked.
Instantly brightens and illuminates the under eye area
What is it: An edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator. I literally cannot live without my beauty blenders.
Can be used with any foundation, BB cream or concealer
Provides natural and flawless coverage
Gorgeous makeup and beauty sunshine coast
What is it: A lightweight liquid foundation that achieves a radiant, silky finish. I saved up to purchase this foundation, and I have yet to find a foundation I like more. My skin looks insta-flawless whenever I wear it.
Can be layered for a variety of coverage options
Allows the natural glow of the skin to come through no matter how many layers you apply
Beautiful, smooth natural finish
Large bottle, lasts a long time
What is it: A sculpting powder with sheer to complete coverage to enhance, deepen and sculpt the face. This is the best contouring powder I have ever used, and I've tried them ALL.
Perfect cool tone contour powder for pale skin
Available in multiple shades
Never looks ashy or orange-y
What is it: A beautiful light pink shimmering blush. I have every pink blush under the sun, but this is the one I use up to the pan and rebuy over and over again. I wear it almost everyday.
Works well on all skintones
Provides the perfect pink flush and a lit-from-within glow
Can be worn over other blush colors as a highlight
What is it: An oil-in-a-stick, medium-coverage lipstick with an innovative texture that provides high-performance color and irreverent shine while it conditions the lips. I wish I could buy this lipstick in every color.
Beautiful color payoff and shine
What is it: Hair care products with luxuriously creamy formulas help repair and strengthen hair for the perfect balance of strength and velvety softness while offering extraordinary color protection. After chemo, my hair became curly and coarse. No matter what I tried, I could not revive the smooth, shiny hair I missed. After two days of using this line, my hair was lush and glossy, just like it had been prior to chemo.
Helps repair and strengthen post-chemo hair
Great for micro-scarred and/or damaged color-treated hair
Provides lasting hair shine
What is it: A dry shampoo that absorbs oil, sweat and odor for ultra-clean hair. Plus it has a time-release fragrance that provides a light, clean scent all day. I shampoo my hair 1-2 times a week and live by this stuff to get me between washings in style.
Revives dirty hair for many days after shampooing
Made without parabens, sulfates and phthalates
Gorgeous makeup and beauty sunshine coast
What is it: Non-greasy, weightless mist that makes hair shine. When using dry shampoos and other styling products, the natural shine of your hair is masked. This spray is my favorite finishing step to bring that beautiful gloss back without looking oily or sticky.
Perfect for days when you use dry shampoo
Non-greasy, weightless mist
Tames static and renegade fly-aways
