Oh makeup – I just love you. I’m not adventurous in my makeup routine though. I have a few staples that I reach for every single day and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. A cute makeup bag to throw them all into is also a necessity. It makes my bathroom counter so much more fun. The Tory Burch ‘Kerrington’ Cosmetics Case is on my must buy list because I can’t get over how much I love it. So what are the classics that you’ll find in my bag?
1) Chella Luscious Eyebrow Color Kit
I need some type of eyebrow color to complete my look and this kit is the best I’ve found. It comes with a highlighter pencil, the eyebrow color pencil of your choice, and eyebrow defining gel that keeps them in place while looking natural. I have this in light brown and it is the perfect color for my eyebrows and is the best eyebrow color system I’ve come across so I highly recommend it.
2) Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation
A lot of the time I feel like spending more on beauty products is worth it, but not always. This Maybelline foundation can be purchased at drugstores and on Amazon for around $10-15 and is amazing. It’s great for acne-prone skin like mine, and provides great coverage. It doesn’t break me out and it has extra SPF in it which is necessary if you are outside with a toddler all the time like me.
3) Urban Decay Naked2 Palette
I love all of the Urban Decay Naked palettes but this one is by far my favorite. The colors are perfect both for creating simple every day looks, or more dramatic going out ones. They go on silky smooth and will last all day.
4) NARS Orgasm Blush
I mean there’s just no better blush than this, and I know I’m not the only girl who thinks this. This is also perfect for either a light layer for an easy daytime look, or can be layered for a more intense look for a night look.
5) Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick
This lipstick is a total splurge for me, but one of those things that is just worth it. It is one of few lipsticks I’ve tried that doesn’t seriously dry out my lips. It is shiny, super moisturizing, and the colors are just out of this world.
So now I’d love to hear from you – what are your favorite makeup products and the ones you reach for every day?

I am in love with the new Maybelline foundation! It goes on so well and has great coverage. I am in love with Urban Decay face primer. My skin is so oily that halfway through the day, it looks like I have no makeup on if I don't use primer. This is a miracle product
