All in THE EDIT
So I decided to start closer to home with my coworker and dear friend Hannah. She's the only person I know in real life who's as beauty obsessed as me, so this should be a long one! So here's what's in her every day makeup bag...
In my mind there is nothing worse than foundation going onto dry skin. But on the other hand, sometimes moisturizer under makeup makes it wear off faster or look a little too dewy. So I began to amass a collection of moisturizing products that wear really really well under makeup. These beauts leave your skin looking primed and perfect, and foundation just glides on top.
I also never used to be someone that touched up their makeup, but like 90% of the stuff here is makeup related... who am I?! Anyway, I got some cute things recently and I was trying to figure out a way to talk about them in one post and ta da! A what's in my bag post! Genius, Amelia. I don't know that I've ever done this before on the blog. I'm pretty sure there's an old video on private somewhere, but we don't really need to talk about that. Onto the junk!
For example a red lip is wayyyyy better than stubbing your toe on a coffee table, or waking up before your alarm, or tripping over your own feet in the middle of campus. Basically it's pretty freakin' great right?? A rep lip is a classic look for me (and probably everyone else ever) that you can depend on when you're not sure what to do. I decided to do a little series of classic looks accompanied by tutorials! Woohoo! I will warn you this one is very rambly so prepare yourself.
Like I'm actually not joking when I say I use one almost every day. They're my fave because you generally see immediate results and I'm a super impatient person. I like that you can choose a specific mask to correct a specific problem and let's be real they're just damn fun. I wouldn't say I stick to a specific masking routine, but I thought it'd be fun to choose a mask to wear everyday this week and see the results!
Thinking about how much crap gets stuck down in my pores makes me a little sick, and even though I double (sometimes triple) cleanse every night you know there's dirt deep down. SO, detox day is the day that I slap on hella skincare products, sit down with some tea and a book, and get it allllll out.(*note that I don't use all of these products at once, these are just a few things that I do use on detox day*)
