I wear makeup… A full face every
My best beauty tip: Wear what is
comfortable for you. I don’t believe in the phrase “less is more” because if I
enjoy the look of more, then I'm going to wear more! If you have acne and
wearing foundation makes you feel more comfortable and confident, then you rock
that foundation! Don't ever let anyone make you feel bad for doing what works
for you. Same goes for the girl who hates the feeling of lipstick, or doesn't
like mascara: it’s all about what you feel best with.
Fave lip product: L’Oreal Color Caresse by
Colour Riche Lipstick in Rose Taffeta
love it: These lipsticks are so pigmented and
never dry out your lips. Rose Taffeta is perfect for getting those doll like
rose bud lips. It is incredibly versatile; it looks great whether you're
wearing a smokey eye or just some mascara.

Fave eye product: MAC
Pigment in Pink Opal
Why I love it: When in doubt, pop on a duo chrome shadow, at least that's my motto. This pigment looks white but has a pink/purple
undertone to it, meaning when the light hits your eye, you can't tell exactly
what color the shadow is—it just looks luminous. I will wear this on its own
with some mascara or with a smokey brown shadow for a more dramatic effect.
Either way, this is my go-to. The price may seem a little steep but you will
NEVER run out of the product. You only need a tiny pinch for both eyes.

Fave mascara: NYX Fly With Me Mascara in Jet Black
Why I love it: There are fibers in this mascara that build volume and length on your
lashes. The rounded end makes it so easy to wing out my eyelashes.

Fave face color product: Tarte 24 Hour Amazonian
Clay Blush in Amused
Why I love it: The Amazonian clay
in this product absorbs oils, so the color stays on all day. Amused is the
perfect color for any look and gives such a natural glow.

Fave tool: Real Techniques by
Samantha Chapman Buffing Brush
Why I love it: This brush makes it
so easy to apply my foundation. I don't have much time in the mornings and this
makes it so quick to buff in my foundation. I never have to worry about
