I don’t typically do beauty-focused posts, however, I’ve received tons of requests from many of you over the months and thought I’d finally offer up a quick peek at some of the products that work for me.  I’m not a huge cosmetics person, so I definitely don’t use all of these every day.  But, when an occasion does call for a bolder lip, for example, the lipsticks above are my favorites.  Similarly, I don’t wear eye shadow or eye liner every single day, but I recently discovered the above eye shadow primer and use it religiously whenever I do throw on shadow.  I’m probably late to the eye shadow primer party, but holy shmokes does this stuff make a difference!  I had no idea a little bit of this special sauce would make shadow creases obsolete. Magic.  

Of course, shopping online is my preferred method, so getting everything I need at one retailer is always a big win.  Very recently, one of my favorite brands, Urban Decay, made its way to Nordstrom which was the final piece of the puzzle in making the site my one-stop shop for cosmetics.  Between their selection and their stellar shipping and return policies, there’s no better place in my book.  Be sure to check out Nordstrom’s new collection of Urban Decay products because they’re the real. deal.  Happy Monday!

  1. The Naked palette is my favorite! I have so many eyeshadows but that palette is the only one I use!

    This has me feeling like I should definitely step up my beauty game. I pretty much only use a very small number of products.

    Love the fun graphics. I am big fan of Clinique products too. Their blush powder lasts for a long long time!
