Beauty Routine

Don't you love it when you find makeup that finally works for you? I'm always looking for good makeup! I'm pretty fair and have freckles, so I can't cake it on, though. At best, I can wear powder. My makeup routine has been pretty much the same since I was around 14, but I've been able to find products that I really love.

Here are some of my go-to's:


One thing that has changed a lot since I was in high school is that I used to CAKE on the eyeliner. It looked like I just smudged on shoe polish. Now I pretty much only use mascara on my top lashes, sometimes brown eyeshadow if I'm going out at night. I have hazel eyes, so I also wear some purple and navy blue at night!

I keep my face simple. I'd love to try out some bare minerals products, but for now I stick to L'Oreal powder and Smashbox tinted moisturizer. My skin dries out fast and Smashbox definitely helps it stay moisturized and happy.

The first perfume I ever got was Dior J'adore and I still use it now when I'm feeling fancy. I use Clinique Happy on a day-to-day basis, though I usually use the rollerball (which I keep in my car in case I need to smell nice, fast). I'm eyeing Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for my next perfume!

I've never been a fan of lip gloss or lipstick. I always feel like there's gunk on my lips and I have to get it off. I generally stick to Nivea, Burts Bees, or lately I've been into eos, mostly because of the cool packaging. I'm a sucker for good marketing and product design!

Are there any other products that I need to try out? Let me know! I keep my routine pretty basic, but I love trying things out!
