Three ways to describe my beauty style: Glam, love to try different looks, total beauty babe
I wear makeup… A full face every day—I like makeup that will stay on my face all day long!
My best beauty tip: You don't always have to follow the beauty trends all the time; the most important thing is to wear whatever makes you feel happy and beautiful.
Fave lip product: Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint in Enchanted, $24, ulta.com
Why I love it: I love it because it's just a gorgeous color that will flatter anyone. Not only does it last a long time but, it also stains your lips with beautiful color. This Lip Tint also looks gorgeous when it is mixed with other lip products.
Fave eye product: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Goldmine, $6, urbandecay.com
Why I love it: The gold in this eyeliner goes well with neutral eye shadows or just by itself. It also brings out the green in my eyes. Love that!
Fave mascara: Benefit They’re Real! Mascara in Black, $23, sephora.com
Why I love it: I have tried A TON of mascaras and this one by far is my favorite because it gives me long-lasting length and curl.
Fave face coverage product: Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup in Fair, $23, sephora.com
Why I love it: The formula doesn't clog my pores and it reduces acne. I also have VERY oily skin but this foundation stays on for a solid 12 hours and you have very little shine by the end of the day.
Fave face color product: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Frisky, $26, ulta.com
Why I love it: This blush is amazing! It is a beautiful pink rosy color that stays on for a looong time. When lightly applied it looks super natural. I've had mine for a year and haven't even finished it yet!
Fave skincare product: Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub, $6, target.com
Why I love it: This scrub is oil-free which is perfect for my oily acne-prone skin! But I love how refreshed it leaves my face feeling. I have tried a bunch of drug-store skincare products and this one by far has shown the best results. Try it for yourself!
Fave tool: Beauty Blender, $20, sephora.com
Why I love it: This helps me put my foundation on a lot faster and much more accurately. I also like the small tip on the sponge so I can work on those hard-to-get areas around my eyes.
