Many beauty products work wonders on their own…but some become unstoppable when perfectly paired together!
You know what I love? A beauty product that performs so well, so amazingly well, that I must keep it in my daily routine. But do you know what I love even more than that single product? Beauty Product Power Couples! Those products that pair so perfectly together it seems they were meant for each other – kind of like destiny in the beauty realm perhaps (which totally could be a thing, right!)? While some products may work fine and dandy on their own, when coupled together, these beauty products can move mountains.
I’ve found more than a few beauty Power Couples over the years, but today I’m choosing three of my favorites to share with you. Be sure to read on after my top picks to see my beauty blogging friends share their Power Couples as well!
Why They’re Meant To Be
Sometimes finding a cleanser that works well with your skin type is a hunt all on its own, but when adding a cleansing device like the Clarisonic it might take a few more trials to find something that works perfectly. I found that some cleansers paired with the Clarisonic just left my face feeling overly tight and uncomfortable which isn’t want I wanted, especially since I have oily skin. Pairing the Clarisonic and Paula’s Choice RESIST Perfectly Balanced Cleanser is perfect in every way – it simultaneously deals with my oily/acne prone/aging skin and this particular cleanser foams which makes it perfect to use with the Clarisonic’s oscillating brush head since a little goes a long way!

Why They’re Meant To Be
I go back and forth between applying under eye concealer with my fingers, Beauty Blender or brush, but I always come back to this perfect couple right here. The domed and slightly tapered end of the Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush (now discontinued) has never failed in blending the NARS Creamy Concealer in the under eye area to perfection. The couple also works wonders in blending out the concealer on other parts of the face if I want coverage + highlight such as down the center of the nose, chin, cupids bow, etc. If you haven’t reached for a domed brush like this one for applying concealer you must give it a try!

Why They’re Meant To Be
When you are looking for that perfect blow-out but you don’t have time to go to the salon and get it done you get desperate. After chopping my hair into a bob a few months ago I was looking to get a little oomph and sleek style going with my new ‘do so I started trying to perfect the at-home blowout. Although I had used the Living Proof PHD Styling Treatment in the past on my long hair (It is amazing for keeping hard-to-curl hair stay curled!) I rediscovered my love for this product when combining it with another long-time favorite, the brushlab Thermal Round Hair Brush. Just a quarter-sized amount of the PHD applied to my damp hair from root to ends and together with the brushlab round brush it gives my hair more body than I could ever expect, making this couple highly addicting for me!
♦ LIVING PROOF Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment | $26 US, sephora.com
♦ brushlab Thermal Round Hair Brush (Green Series) 3.5″ Barrel | $15.99 US, ulta.com
