Friday Five!

Today’s Friday Five is going to be all about my favorite makeup!

  1.  Radiant Defense by Rodan & Fields (I’m in shade “sand”).  Get glowing, and quickly with this skin perfecter.  Yes, that’s what it’s technically called.  It’s a dermacosmetic, which means it smooths and perfects the skin, helps with fine lines and wrinkles and gives it a healthy glow that lasts all day.
  2. MAC eyeliners.  I’ve used MAC on my eyes since I was 18 years old.  Their eyeliners are like butter.  I tend to use the Tecknakohl liners the most.  Softer than the regular kohl pencil, but still long lasting.  My favorite color is “Photogravure”, which is a black/dark brown combo.
  3. Tarte eye palettes.  As I mentioned before, I was a MAC devotee for all things eyes.  Unnnnntil I fell madly in love with Tarte eye shadows.  They glide on so smooth and last for hours and hours.  I still use MAC eye shadows (never quit a legend..duh), but my Tarte palettes go with me everywhere as well.  My favorite palettes are the Pro to Go palette, and the #RemixNatural Color Collection palette.
  4. Tarte Shape Tape.  If you don’t use, or haven’t heard of this, you are from another planet.  So I feel like I don’t even have to explain it, but let’s just say if you ever need a concealer, this should be your ONLY go-to.  I’ve used like 50 million brands over the years and this one can’t be beat!  I wear shade “light-medium”.
  5. And finally, my last favorite, Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara in “blackest black”.  I was a Benefit and Too Faced mascara devotee, through and through, until I found this a few months ago.  This has perfect coverage, doesn’t clump, it curls and lengthens and is under 9.00.  #winning.


Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy it to the fullest!



Putting a Spring in Your Step!


Every year since middle school, when I see all the spring trends in the February issue of any fashion magazine (in middle school it was YM–obviously) it puts my brain into a spin cycle.  The inner Cher Horowitz in me starts thinking about all the things I have to have, and as soon as possible.  At 32 I’m not picking up a YM mag anymore but I always make sure to pick up InStyle, Allure and People Style Watch.  Also exciting at age 32- home finds!  I never thought I would see the day when I would get more excited about an upholstered arm chair than a new purse, but that day has come my friends.

Here is my Spring must have list:
