1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I believe it was 8th grade when I finally got interested in makeup/ was allowed to wear it. I'm sporting some tasteful blue eyeshadow in my 8th grade school picture and had been fresh faced the year before.


2. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?
I did a post a few weeks about about my favorite beauty products, but to rehash I'll go with
Bobbi Brown, Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (Black Ink): I feel naked if I don't line my waterline, and this is my go-to liner for that. It applies easily with a small brush and has excellent staying power for being applied on the waterline.

Supergoop!, Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream: This is definitely my favorite Birchbox discovery. My skin has been awful lately and I wanted to try something "better" for my skin than foundation. I tried a few other BB creams including the Urban Decay one, and none of them had enough coverage. This one however has been absolutely perfect and matches my skin tone very well.

Urban Decay, Naked Basics Palette: This palette has it all. All the perfect colors for a subtle smokey eye, a basic black, and a brown color that is perfect for brow lining.

3. What is one makeup product you don't leave home without?
I actually never bring makeup with me unless I haven't applied it and need to do it in the car (when I'm not the one driving of course.)

4. What is your daily beauty routine?
I don't have a daily one because most days I don't usually wear any makeup. I'm just too lazy and don't always leave the house. When I do it up right I put on CC cream, powder foundation, bronzer and highlighter to contour (though I'm no pro), then I line my waterline, apply black eyeliner (I love me some black eyeliner), some sort of bronze eyeshadow combination, then mascara primer and mascara.

Plus this always happens.

5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you've discovered in the last year?
Probably the Supergoop! CC cream. I have been able to find out about and try all kind of new makeup/ skin/ hair products thanks to subscription boxes, but there aren't many things that I use in my normal beauty routine.

The struggle is real.

  4. Visiting from the link up. Rose Jam shower gel smells like heaven. I'm convinced. It's a shame it's seasonal - I'm going to have to snap a bunch more up next time around!
    Also, eyeliner is a bit too much for me to deal with, precisely for the reason above. Love it.

    1. Uggh yes Rose Jam is heaven in a bottle! I was meaning to get out to Lush and grab more but I never did and now I have to hoard my tiny bottle until next year. It's not fair!
