Beauty Essentials

My beauty routine changes with the seasons however, there are five products you can find in my makeup bag year round.

1. Benefit 'They're Real!" Mascara {$23}- It instantly adds that extra length to your lashes and gives your eyelashes a fuller look. My favorite part is that its great for a gal on the go, it lasts all day!

2. Amazing Cosmetics Concealer {$42}- This concealer is by hands the best I've tried so far {yes, better than Boi-ing! by Benefit}. It evens out your skin tone and illuminates your face while still feeling al natural. It's the perfect trick to get rid of those dark under eye circles!

3. Milani Crystal Gloss {$5}- So many of you have asked me what lip color I'm wearing in my outfit posts and it's the Milani Crystal Gloss in Raspberry Icing. This is my go to color as it instantly brightens my mood and gives a fresh faced look.

4. Elf Kabuki Brush {$6}- For the price point, you really can't go wrong! It's ultra soft and doesn't shed. I like to use it with loose powder to set my makeup for the day.

5. Free People Elastic Printed Hair Ties {$10}- It's a fun way to add a touch of color to your ensemble with these fun printed hair ties. I prefer them over regular hair ties since they're not as rough on my hair. It doesn't hurt that there cute too! I also love these and those.

I would love to know what your beauty essentials consist of. Also I'm very excited to announce, you can now find me on
