Current Beauty Essentials

Here are the 11 products I use everyday (unless it's a special occasion or if I'm scrubbed out and have zero makeup on). I also wear lipstick, so I guess that's 12. If you're interested in reading about my favorite lipstick, click.

1. NARS Danmari All About Cheeks Palette
So apparently this blush palette was limited edition but every color is available individually. I'm always playing around with this palette, all the colors are fantastic. I'm very loyal to NARS when it's comes to blush, they just can't be f-ed with. Lately I've been really into 'Desire' for a rosy-just-pinched-cheek look. And whenever I don't know what to put on my cheeks I always gravitate towards 'Orgasm' which is a peachy pink shade that's lovely on all skin tones. 'Sin' is a gorgeous berry tone and is my favorite blush for Fall, please believe it will be on steady rotation once the weather cools down.

This is my holy grail mascara, it just does everything you want a mascara to do and it smells like roses.

I don't wear foundation on a daily basis, but I do like creating a nice base to apply my blush, highlight, etc., and even out my skin tone. This CC cream blends quickly and has decent coverage if you like to keep it fairly light/maybe medium.

This is my second time purchasing this concealer crayon, and that says a lot. There's a ton of product in this, so it takes a while to get through. I use this under my eyes, on my brow bone, and around my nose. I typically go for one swipe under my eyes, but if you need a little more it's super buildable and doesn't cake. It's insanely creamy (the name does not lie) and blends seamlessly. It covers and brightens, so sometimes I'll even pat some on my cheekbones for a little highlight and lift.

I go through phases with using a primer, at the moment I'm really into it. This is a great primer for creating a smooth surface for your base and helping everything you layer over it last longer.

Brow gel is v necessary to me, it just makes me feel better, okay? This brow gel is not really my favorite, but it does an okay job. Just trying to finish it up before I move onto another. Open to suggestions!

Gorgeous packaging aside, this is an exceptional finishing powder. It doesn't even feel like you have powder on, it's like... a magical perfectly luminous (without being shiny or sparkly) airy veil for your face. It blurs lines and imperfections and sets my makeup until I wash my face. Get thereeee.

I use the lighter shade on the left to fill and shape my entire brow. Sometimes I'll use the dark shade just to define the ends of my brow where it's a little more sparse. I fux with it.

I'm pretty sure this is the first eye shadow I ever purchased. I really like using it on the inner corners of my eyes, brow bones, cheek bones, and cupids bow. It's v versatile. #useiteverywherebutmyeyelids

Great for contouring your cheeks, and the highlight is subtle and perfect for everyday wear.

I keep this powder in my purse for little touch ups throughout the day.  It has a bit of SPF so I like to put a little on before I go out in the sun if I know the SPF I put on earlier has worn off. It's so finely milled that you can't even tell that it's on (other than the fact that you skin looks glow-y and gorgeous), and you can keep reapplying without it caking up and looking gross. Win.

Breezeblocks

I know I kinda fell off, but in the last month I've really only been wearing suits for work or some variation of a croptop (so you haven't missed much). Peep my instagram for some other joints I've been wearing/consuming lately. DSC_0031 DSC_0202 DSC_0233 DSC_0034 DSC_0123 DSC_0168 DSC_0242 DSC_0148 photographed by Sheerin Ramalingam

A Place Like This

All I want to do is wear half tucked tees and cropped tops. Oh, and leather pants. Always leather pants. DSC_0235 DSC_0238 Untitled-2 DSC_0312 DSC_0337 DSC_0380

Florida Kilos

Every now and then I find an ethereal piece that I instantly fall in love with, and it inspires me to wear a non-black scarf. Sidenote: this top is totally on sale right now, get there (linked below thanks to Google because I'm avoiding the Zara website like the plague, beware of the Zara sale). And if you're wondering who that effortlessly cool chick is in the second to last picture, it's my niece. DSC_0152 DSC_0064 DSC_0232 DSC_0254 DSC_0295 DSC_0196DSC_0305

Raw Exit

I will not let a season dictate my life choices. Leather forever; freak a weather. 14170517537_1b30fcc44b_o 14170518687_3f1a14d920_o

Lover Of Mine

DSC_0095 14333931456_cac19d1a7d_o It has been a month since I've posted anything. I'm the worst, I know. But I'm back now, and (fingers crossed) will be posting regularly again. What really needs to be addressed here are my shoes. You can't quite tell in these photos but they're calf hair and I'm in love. Because it's been in the 90s down here it's a little hard to add layers to my outfits and I've been keeping my looks pretty light, so I like to add a little texture and these have just the right amount. Also they're cozy AF which is always a plus. I fully intend on living in these this summer. 14170456160_6bcfaf6308_o 14170412798_730c3cfe72_o
