Sharing a few products that have made it into the “holy grail” status. Most of these products I’ve repurchased countless times, or plan to repurchase once they run out.
NARS LAGUNA BRONZER: I’ve tried many bronzers, but always come back to this one. Very subtle shimmer  and never makes my fair skin look too fake or orangey. I’m probably on my 30th one. I often  use this in combination with Nars Orgasm or Nars Gaiety blush.
MAC RED LIPSTICK: My go-to red that’s neither matte or shimmery. I love that it never dries my lips out, and for added all-day staying power + moisture, I use MAC’s lip primer underneath. For a hot pink pout, I love Nars Schiap. 
SHISEIDO EYELASH CURLER: For a few days during NYFW, I stayed over my friends apartment. While I was getting ready in the morning, I realized I lost my eyelash curler along the way. Not sure how something like that happens, but that’s typical behavior. Naturally, I asked her if I could borrow hers, and she responded with “oooh.. I don’t have one.” My reaction was pretty much a “WHAT????!!!!”  My point is, I cannot live without one, particularly this one from Shiseido. When I use it, I feel like I’m getting a mini eye lift.
STILA ALL DAY LIQUID EYELINER: Liquid eyeliner on my top lid is pretty much a staple in my routine. This one is easy to apply and lasts all day.
NARS BABYDOLL LIP LAQUER: I’ve been using this since I was 18 years old and have yet to find a pink gloss/laquer that I love more. When I’m not in the mood for a bold lip, or if I’m wearing a heavier eye look, this is always my go-to! I tend to “eat” off my gloss, but this actually stays on for me. Two of my best friends, who are olive-toned, swear by Nars Chelsea Girls.
NARS CREAMY CONCEALER: A makeup artist used this product on me on a set and I’ve been hooked ever since. This concealer is ideal for blemishes, redness and is so easy to apply without ever looking cakey!
DIPTYQUE EAU DUELLE: I once read someone describe this as vanilla, all grown up. The vanilla note isn’t sticky or sweet (and I get nauseous very easily from many perfumes), but very smooth and creamy. Out of all my perfumes, this is Keith’s favorite since he compliments me whenever I wear it.

YSL TOUCHE ECLAT FOUNDATION: My favorite foundation that I’ve used in years. A bit expensive, but worth every penny, in my opinion. It glides on like a dream and makes my skin look dewy, without looking oily. The coverage is light to medium, so if you’re okay with that, I highly recommend it!Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Next, I’m working on a skincare routine/favorites post. I’ve recently found some incredible products that have changed my skin, so excited to share with you all.
