My Makeup Essentials

Nailing down a beauty routine involves a lot of trial and error. You not only have to find what works for your skin, you also have to find products that help you achieve the look you are going for. Finding a foundation that gave me both coverage and a bit of a glow for example seemed like almost an impossible task. I know I love seeing what other people have in their makeup lineup so I wanted to share mine with you.

I used to always have the “save” mindset when it came to makeup. I never wanted to spend too much, but honestly, I probably spent MORE trying out product after product because they just weren’t right. So many of these items might seem like more of an investment up front, but if you get what you’re looking for with the first shot it’s worth it. Plus, who doesn’t love those Sephora Beauty Insider points?!

What beauty products do you swear by? In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing my skincare routine as well so stay tuned!

Trend to Try: Jumpsuits

I think everyone has a few silly things that they get hung up on and can’t let go of. I’m a little embarrassed to share that for a long time, I was obsessed with wanting to be able to wear jumpsuits. Weird I know. I love how the look is effortless and a bit quirky, but due to the jumpsuit’s one-piece nature, my one size on the top and one size on the bottom body did not get along with it. Well, thanks to some new versions of the trend being introduced (and many months of hot yoga and barre classes ;)) like wide-legged and more relaxed fits…IT HAPPENED, I could wear a jumpsuit!

Naturally, my obsession has now moved from wanting to wear them to purchasing them to wear. The great thing is that because they are so popular right now you can find them nearly everywhere at every price point.

Speaking of vintage things, I’m pretty pumped to attend Junk Bonanza this Saturday. It’s like walking into a giant treasure chest of vintage + antique goodness. I’ll be tweeting and gramming my finds here and here.
