GL girlie asacraig from Warren, OH has got a killer beauty bag, and we’re giving you a peek! She’s also got some rockin’ advice for what basic buys are totally worth it.
Three ways to describe my beauty style: Pretty in pink, love to try different looks, and total beauty babe—love giving advice to my besties.
I wear makeup… Always—even if it's just some gloss.
My best beauty tip: My best beauty tip would be if your going to apply powder foundation, you should use a liquid foundation first, because your skin will take in the powder and take the shape of your face lines and acne. If you apply liquid foundation first, when you go to apply your pressed powder, it just smoothes things out.
Fave lip product: Baby Lips Balm in Pink Punch
Why I love it: It treats lips without burning or irritation while giving off natural shine.
Baby Lips Lip Balm, $3, target.com
Fave eye product: NYC liner in Black
Why I love it: It goes on easy, it doesn't smudge and it stays on all day. It can give you a cute look if you just apply it to your top lid or a fierce look when you add a wing and apply on your lower lid.

Fave face coverage product: Maybelline BB Cream in Medium/Deep
Why I love it: It has 8 benefits: it blurs imperfections, enhances your skin, adjusts to your skin tone, smoothes, hydrates, has SPF 30 and has no oils or heavy ingredients.

Fave face color product: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Plum Wine
Why I love it: It’s easy to apply, not messy at all. It's more like a cream than a powder, so it doesn't bring out lines, wrinkles or bumps on your face.

Fave skincare product: Olay Foaming Face Wash
Why I love it: It's easy on sensitive skin and soap free so it doesn't dry skin out. And gets dirt, sweat and make up off easily and evens skin tone.
