Good morning! Yesterday, I shared with you some of my first things first beauty routine. Once I’m ready to conquer the day, which is not until after my coffee or tea (which I pack several of to go) I use these makeup essentials:
1. Thanks to Birchbox I have gotten to try lots of new products that I wouldn’t necessarily pick off the shelf. Plus, each month you can accumulate points by reviewing items. This Hot Mama Blush is one that I buy with my points over and over again. It has a bit of shimmer to it and the shade is just perfect.
2. Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler. The thing I love most about this is that it is compact. Most eyelash curlers are SO bulky!!
7. Laura Mercier Gloss in Bare Pink. As an everyday lipgloss, I love the way this stays on your lips for awhile. If I’m feeling feisty that day, I’ll put it on over a red or pink lipstick.
8. Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb. I love this travel size. Plus, it smells amazing.
These are pretty much my everyday staples. I also have ‘fancy’ makeup I save for getting gussied up–like primers and finishing powders–but for everyday I keep it pretty simple!!
So how about you? What are your favorite makeup staples? Anything you swear by?
