Everyday Essentials with Buxom Beauty

Buxom EssentialsAfter switching gears to fall, my everyday beauty routine needed a serious pick-me-up. Lucky me I recently had the chance to test out some products from Buxom and found myself inspired all over again to put makeup on each morning. I (literally) got my glow back. My first impression was how smooth everything went on from the foundation to the lip creams—hands down the best lip shine I’ve used! Putting each product on felt luxurious in its own way. Here’s a peek at my everyday favorites that I’ve been relying on plus (drum roll) I’ll be giving away all eight products to 2 lucky winners! Enter below.

Evening Stars

Evening StarsI’ve always joked that during the winter months I go into hibernation. At night I’d much rather be cozy at home then venture into the cold in a cocktail dress—as much as I love dressing up. It takes a little nudging to get me out the door. The start of November means holiday parties, celebrations and reasons to clink glasses are on the horizon, which all require a little primping and motivating if you’re a homebody like me. I was reminded of this the other day while at Nordstrom browsing the beauty counters and noticed the holiday decor surrounding me. I knew it was time to pick up a little armor for my beauty bag. Two things that always pull me together at the end of the day for an evening party: a dose of perfume and something to brighten my overall look. I came home with Kiehl’s Original Musk and YSL Touche Éclat, a miracle highlighter I’ve heard makeup artist rave about before. Both I’ve been obsessed with since.
