Makeup Essentials



It was just my birthday last week and I got a gift card and birthday giveaway from Sephora. They gave out the They're Real mascara and the Watt's Up highlighter, both of which have become some of my new favorite products. My parents gave me the Chanel perfume which is a great fruity scent that lasts all day. I've worked these new products into my regular beauty routine which always includes Dream Matte Mousse as my foundation and a combination of Benefit blushes and bronzers. I don't go too heavy on eye makeup, just a little mascara and natural eyeshadow. Then I finish off with lip gloss or lip stick depending on my mood. 

I'm also excited because I just signed up for Birchbox and can't wait to see what beauty products they surprise me with!

  2. I love the Dream Matte foundation as well! It leaves such a flawless finish.
    And I've always sworn that no one needs to buy high-end mascara because drugstore mascara is perfectly adequate, but Benefit they're Real! mascara has almost completely changed my mind. I got a sample tube of it a few months ago, and no drugstore mascara has lived up to it since!
