Ever since I was a little girl I loved dabbling in makeup. When my sister & I were younger we would spend a few days at both sets of our grandparents houses. Both my Nana and Grandma have inspired my love for all things feminine and timeless. They have taught me and continue to teach me tips after tips on how to take care of my skin and apply my makeup for a flawless finish. Below are the products I use to create a simple, yet elegant look.

I have worn the Clinique Tinted Moisturizer since I was in high school. Not only does it have SPF 15, but it feels light on my face and lasts all day (I wear shade 03). I use Bare Minerals Original Foundation (color “Light”) to set the foundation.
This past September when I went to Fashion Week, I had the special treat of having my face made with Yves Saint Laurent (Eeep!). I was specifically wanting a concealer that would brighten under my eyes and I was matched with the ‘Touche Eclat’ Radiant Touch (shade 2 “Luminous Ivory”). Although a little pricey, I love the way it looks & feels.
Bronzer & Blush
I recently purchased this Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette and it did not disappoint. The blushes are bright and the bronze colors create the perfect sun-kissed glow. (I also don’t mind the chic white & gold packaging!)
Lashes! This is by far the most common question I get in regards to beauty. My favorite mascara to create long, thick looking lashes is hands down L’Oreal Teloscopic. The brush is thin enough to separate your lashes while lengthening them at the same time! Best part? It’s less than $10 at your nearest drug store. If you really want a dramatic look then use the white side of the L’Oreal Double Extend Primer first.
YSL Glossy Stain #15 Rose Vinyl (the perfect pink! love that it stays all day!)
