I’ve been a beauty product junkie ever since I owned my first Bonne Bell Lip Smacker (Dr. Pepper flavor, of course). I attribute my love for cosmetics from many a trips to Longs Drugs (still miss it) with my older sister, reading countless issues of Seventeen, then moving onto InStyle and Allure, and ultimately just a love for makeup in general. Now let me clarify – even though I do love makeup, you won’t find me doing crazy YouTube tutorials on it anytime soon. I leave the Kimmy K contouring stuff to the pros. But I do enjoy consistently trying new products! In addition, you can still find me using a moment of down time to browse the makeup aisle of a drugstore, dive into a beauty magazine or head to the Nordstrom beauty counters and get lost in all they have to offer.
So today I wanted to share my absolute beauty staples – the products I use nearly every day! This little routine I have takes about 5 minutes and is extremely natural looking. It’s just enough to make me feel ‘put together’, hide any blemishes or dark circles, and highlight features I like about myself. I’ll take you through the products and you can click on the links below to find them for yourselves, if you so desire!
