When it comes to makeup I believe in quality, not quantity. As a teenager, I literally had drawers full of cheap makeup that I bought impulsively and never used. I now have one (yes, just one) drawer for my makeup essentials which I use on an everyday basis.
Bobbi Brown pink and gold lip palette
These colors work for my skin tone and I get to choose from a few different colors, depending on my mood.
Bobbi Brown eye pencil in Jet
I cannot tell you how many eyeliners I have gone through over the years and hated. I finally found the perfect one! Bobbi Brown’s eyeliners have the perfect texture, don’t smudge, and don’t look too cake-y. I like dark eyeliners because I think they make my eyes stand out more.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
This stuff really helps your makeup stay put, which is especially crucial for nights involving dancing and sweating. It keeps your makeup looking even and uniform, and also makes your skin feel super soft!
This mineral powder feels light, accomplishes the job of covering up what doesn’t need to be seen, and is also a great price.
Urban Decay “Urban Ammo” Palette
I love this eye shadow palette and its variety. It has fun, bright colors that are perfect for playing up an outfit, but also has neutrals which help you achieve that au natural look.
Bare Minerals blush in True
I brush this over the apples of my cheeks for a natural, rosy glow.
Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster
I’m pretty fair-skinned, so bronzer really helps me look less washed out. I sweep this bronzer up my jawline after applying blush.
Too Faced Lash Injection
Holy honkin’ eyelashes minus the clumps. My favorite mascara find of all time
