Happy Saturday!


How about that weather, though? I had to go into the office this morning, and I was greeted by crisp air and crunchy leaves when I opened up our front door. OH YES. Bring on the pumpkin pie and blanket scarves, friends.

I always love seeing “What’s in My Makeup Bag” posts. Its like a little peek into people’s real life preferences and habits, which I always find interesting. So, because friends ask me from time to time about my favorite products, I figured I would compile a list of my go-tos for a day where I was rushing out the door and only had time for the absolute basics.


IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

I’ve talked about this foundation here and it’s still my absolute favorite. I have very polarized combination-type skin (lovely, right?). It’s very dry in some places, and too oily in others. This foundation works well in all areas of my face, and stays put all day. And it’s SPF 50+, which is a definite bonus.


Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush

I loooooove Tarte products. They’re cruelty free and vegan (if you’re into that sort of thing) and the blush especially is SUPER pigmented. I own both Blissful and Celebrated, but I find myself reaching for Celebrated more. It’s more of a subtle, neutral pink. And be careful putting this one on because it does. not. budge. (Sad news, I looked for Celebrated to link, but apparently it was limited edition. *insert crying emoji*)


Naked2 Basics 

So if you don’t try anything else from this post, try this pallet. Adam bought this for me last Christmas, and I’m pretty sure I’ve used it every day since. Its just got a really great selection of matte colors ranging from a soft off-white to a dark brown. Super easy to wear.


Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

I feel like I’m on a quest for the worlds best mascara. Not too long ago, I tried Benefit They’re Real Mascara and it was definitely underwhelming. I might have even returned it? I don’t remember. ANYWAY, I heard so many good thing about Roller Lash that I decided to give it a go. Now it my absolute favorite. I’ve got tiiiinnny lashes, but Roller Lash gives them a nice curl without being to clumpy or thick.

Happy Saturday!
