Beauty Haul -Basic Staples

Hey y’all!

We all have our beauty staples, the ones that we use everyday without thinking about and always look good. Well these two products I’m sharing with you are ones that I’ve been using FOREVER.

New York Roots to Southern Boots

First up, is Bobbi Brown’s blush in Pale Pink #9. When I first saw it, I thought “no way! I’m not putting hot pink blush on my face. I don’t want to look like I’m 5.” I was instantly reassured and ate my words because the blush looks fabulous. The blush is super pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way. I apply it on the apples of my cheeks to give me a nice flushed look using a fluffy brush. I tried using firmer brush a few times, but it made me look like a clown. I’ve used it for years and I don’t think I’ve even made a dent in it since the quality is so amazing.

Next up, is my favorite drug store mascara, L’Oreal Double Extend. I’ve used expensive mascaras in the past and don’t get me wrong most of them make it look like I have lashes for days but I can’t always spend or justify $25+ on a tube of mascara. I love that it comes with a primer so lengthen your lashes. Not only does the L’Oreal¬†Mascara make it seem like I have lashes for days, it also doesn’t give me tiger strips on my upper lid and it comes off in little tubes. So if you get in the water, you won’t have raccoon eyes. It takes a little bit longer to come off with eye make up remover, but I’ll take that over looking like an extra in KISS.

What are some of your beauty staples that you can’t live without?

Make sure to check back on Friday for the Friday Five!
