In My Makeup Bag: Beauty Essentials

In My Makeup Bag: Beauty Essentials

My beauty routine has seriously evolved since I started college a few years ago. I wear significantly less makeup than I used to on a day to day basis. With the exception of special occasions, my morning beauty regimen includes moisturizer (you would not believe the number of dry and oily skin moisturizer reviews I’ve been through), a long-lasting BB cream with SPF, mascara, and Anastasia brow products. I like natural makeup to complement a bold brow. I’ll do a shimmery eyeshadow as well if I have extra time. In my makeup bag, I keep YSL Touché Éclat Blur Perfector for touching up shine throughout the day.

I buy most of my products online because unlike clothes, I think you can get a really good idea about a beauty product based on the reviews. I was excited when Farfetch emailed me to announce that they have just launched a beauty section on their site. Farfetch has a bunch of cool boutiques that you can shop from. Space NK Apothecary is their first beauty boutique. I put together a wish list of some products I already use or would love to try.

My top picks:

Foreo Luna Mini1) Foreo Luna Mini: This cleansing brush has replaced my Clarisonic and become part of my daily routine. It gets everything off my skin, but does it gently. Plus you can use it for months without charging. The mini size is great for traveling.

Lipstick queen

2) Lipstick Queen in Pink Bluff: This looks like the perfect shade of pink for everyday.

kevin aucoin brow gel

3) Kevin Aucoin Brow Gel Pencil: I’ve always wanted to try brow gel and this looks like it would be super easy to apply.

eve lom sunrise blush

4) Eve Lom Sunrise Blush: The peach-hued blush would give a natural glow. The description says it’s “weightless” and “blends effortlessly.” I’m in.
