I was in desperate need of a reality check and am so excited about my new makeup regime. Chapstick and mascara are just not cutting it anymore and I seriously needed to step up my game. My mother made me aware of this in a way that only a mother can. So I bit the bullet, put on my big girl pants, and committed to a routine. I've never been great with makeup. I spent most of my college days with my hair up in a ponytail with a ribbon in it (cringe) having just come from lacrosse practice. I've done OK on my own piecing different products from various lines together over the years. But I've found that I'm a little allergic to YSL so the famed Touche Eclat actually made my eyes water and sting! I've always had good luck with Bobbi Brown (sans my proclivity for dropping the shimmer brick and breaking it EVERY SINGLE TIME) so as my mother picked up all her products this afternoon I got my own as well. I love everything and am particularly excited about my under eye products, bb cream, and lip balm (aka fancy Chapstick). I'll keep you updated as to how it all works out. I have a feeling I may be turning over a new leaf here. Do you have a makeup routine? Any favorite products you can't live without? Would love to hear.
Shop my picks listed by row:
/ creamy concealer kit for under eye in warm ivory / extreme party mascara (Oh hey, I like to party) /
