I get asked almost every day about an item of makeup I’m wearing. I’m definitely a creature of habit and wear the same thing nearly EVERY DAY, day or night. It’s shifted a little bit since the last time I shared back in 2019, so I figured it was time for an update. Here’s what I use today:


Bare Minerals Foundation in Sandalwood 15 $35 I’ve used this foundation for the past few years, shifting between Fawn in the Summer and Sandalwood in the winter months. I just love it so much.

Bare Minerals Concealer in light/med neutral 05 $25

Bare Minerals Bronzer in Faux Tan I use this for light contouring $29

Sun Bunny Bronzer $32 This has been my go-to bronzer for years.

Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon in Lead The Way You will not regret getting this one! I’m wearing this or chapstick 99% of the time. It’s the most beautiful color and stays on! $9

Mascara I’ve tried so many mascaras, but this one is the bessstttt. I’ve converted all my sisters and friends. It volumizing and lengthening and doesn’t flake at all. $23

Eyebrow Pencil $25 I use the brush side to brush my eyebrows up before filling them in with this universal taupe pencil

Clear Brow Gel $22 And then set them with this brow gel that keeps them in place even when I’m changing my shirt.

Laura Mercier Blush in Sangria this blush is the newest addition and the bright pink blush adds so much to my look! A little goes a long way and it stays on all day! Once I changed from peachy blush to this one, my face looked so much more alive! $32

Too Faced Natural Nudes Eye Shadow this is also a new addition and I can’t say enough good things!! The entire palette is filled with an array of neutrals with a matte and corresponding shimmery counterpart. I know it’s bold to say—but literally my fav palette ever.  $48

Our bedroom changed a lot when we painted it and added trim, but not everyone can make big changes to their rooms. I wanted to put together a quick reference tool for when you’re in a busy season of life and want an easy update. Or perhaps your landlord isn’t keen on paint rollers! Here […]
