Happy Sunday and holy cow – the first day of November! Where did 2015 go? I heard Christmas music at the grocery store this weekend but I can’t complain because I’m a Christmas freak and absolutely love the holiday season.

Today I wanted to share my current makeup go-tos. When it comes to makeup, I like a really basic look. I hardly ever do eyeshadow but when I do I love using my Naked 2 pallet or this Laura Mercier stick eye color (so easy to apply and I love the rose gold color). I usually do the exact same routine with my makeup for a few solid days straight before I throw in a curve ball like eyeshadow or cat eye liner. My everyday basics always include: foundation, powder, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, brows and mascara. Depending on what we have planned for the day or evening I will add eyeshadow, highlighter, more eyeliner, lip stick but these guys don’t accompany me everyday.

These ones above are my current favorites in my makeup drawer. I recently switched back to Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer because I love how soft and natural it feels – you can’t ever go wrong with a tinted moisturizer especially this one. I usually opt for a more moisturizing foundation in the colder months because I get a bit more dry. I haven’t found anything by Laura Mercier that I didn’t like so I recently picked up this new blush (Lotus Pink) and the Foundation Powder and I really really, love them!

My absolute favorite in my makeup drawer right now is this Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecting Powder. This baby is the perfect highlighter and makes your skin look perfecto. I’m also really obsessed with this YSL Volupte Sheer Candy lip color. If you’ve never tried one of these before – you really need to. They’re so soft and creamy they actually keep your lips hydrated and the color lasts forever – it also tastes pretty good too!

I’m always on the lookout for new makeup goodies to try so if you have any favorites let me know in the comments below or send me a message – lets chat about makeup! Thanks for stopping by!
