I have really stepped up my beauty routine of late.  I am not really sure where the motivation came from, but I now enjoy taking the time to do my makeup every morning.  While I still try to keep the end result looking minimal and fresh faced, I do more than just brush on powder and mascara.  For example, thanks to a sample bag I received at Sephora, I started using Laura Mercier's primer lotion (pictured above) and found that my foundation powder went on AND stayed on so much better.  I also was introduced to Make Up Forever's HD Finishing Powder, which has essentially changed my life (yes I am exaggerating, but you get the idea).  This powder literally takes 3 seconds to apply and makes your entire face look airbrushed! Since I love all of my new beauty items so much, I wanted to share them in case you are on the market for a new product.  Do you have any makeup items you swear by?  xx


  1. Ooh I think my sister has that - I will definitely have to try that out. Thanks for the comment! xx

  2. My sister is all about the primer and finishing powder. So far I can't be bothered and I'm trying to switch over to natural stuff, but I'm also suddenly obsessed with what I think are new wrinkles, I might get fancy soon.

  5. What a great collection! I just pop on some black eyeliner and lip balm in the morning and that's me done :-)

  6. I love the sugar lipgloss! I also have the NARS blush in deep throat, it's fantastic.
