makeup basics

when it comes to makeup i’m very simple and very boring.  day to day i just put a little concealer on blemishes and a little bronzer all over my face for some warmth.  maaaaaybe some mascara if i’m feeling bold.  because i don’t wear very much, i’m very particular about the products that i do wear. so here are my staples as listed above and some favorites for when i feel like wearing a little bit more makeup than usual:

nars radiant creamy concealer in vanilla

nars laguna bronzer

lorac pocket pro (includes shades nude, pewter, and espresso)

maybelline great lash in brownish black

nars velvet matte lip pencil in damned

bobbi brown sheer powder brush

makeup forever hd pressed powder (travel size from sephora)
