Beauty Bag

Beauty BagI’ve been going a bit bare lately. Partly due to my skin feeling extra amazing (more on that below) but also because the start of Spring inspires me to be a little more carefree. Here’s what I’ve been loving in my bag of goodies this month plus a pretty sweet giveaway!

Highlighted and Smokey

NARS ExclusiveTwo things that I always have in my makeup bag: a good highlighter and a black or brown eye liner. Simple essentials but boy am I picky about my basics. When it comes to highlighters I’m all about getting the right shade and shimmer. Too much of one looks obvious and achieving a natural glow is key. Sometimes I even mix it with a little foundation for an extra subtle affect. With eye liner I’m all about the consistency and how well it smudges. I wear it almost every day so I’ve had my trials with a few favorites—check out my everyday smokey eye tutorial. Nordstrom happens to exclusively sell two NARS products that I’m currently smitten with that cover my makeup must-haves: the NARS shadow stick in St. Lucia (perfect for highlighting cheekbones, forehead and bridge of the nose) and the multiple stick (easily smudges!). I’ve been taking both on the go lately because they’re perfect for mid-day touch ups.

Beauty Bag

nov-beauty-bagMy beauty routine this past month revolved around two things: keeping it simple and staying hydrated. Last week we packed up the car for a mini getaway to Santa Ynez to celebrate Christmas with family. While a majority of my packing went to making sure Elin had everything she needed, I carelessly threw my things into a bag knowing that I wouldn’t need much. Among my usual beauty favorites (seen here and here) I threw in some recent finds that I’ve been all about lately.
