[Pretty Face] In my bag...

As I mentioned last week, it was high time I posted an update to my beauty faves and what's in my current (mommy) rotation.  It's all about time.  I can usually do everything from moisturizer to blush in under 2-3 minutes.

Olay Complete Sensitive with SPF has been in my bag for years... and years... and years.  Every now and then I'll splurge on something like Clarins, but then I always go back (and save some pennies) on Olay.

Smashbox Primer is thee only primer as far as I am concerned.

My HG Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer and corrector.  If I was to wear only one product, it'd be this one.

Anastasia Brow Powder is the small product with huge impact.  While if I'm being as low maintenance as possible, I'm grabbing concealer and mascara.  If I were to grab one more it'd be the brow powder.  Filling in my light brows really helps frame my face and just makes me look polished... and awake!  (brush)

I never jumped on the DiorShow train, but Buxom Mascara blows away any others I've tried.  It's all in the brush, and this brush even months past when it should be allowed, still separates my lashes and leaves a clumpless coating.

Nars blush/bronzer duo in Orgasm and Laguna.  Everyone owns this, no explanation needed.  (brush)

Optional:  Bobbi Brown gel liner.  This used to be my one and only must.  I would put this on instead mascara since the impact is the same, just makes my eyes pop.  However, it takes some time and concentration to apply and that's 30 - 60 seconds I just don't get some days!

What are your favorite go-to products??


  1. Love all of this. Definitely want to check out the secret camouflage!

    1. It's so great, it's a bit tacky(?) so it stays on all day. Like not fluid or oily, I can't think of the right word!

  2. I swear by Estee Lauder's BB Cream and the Maybeline Undereye Eraser! (As well as quite a few of these products!)

    1. Ahh, I have heard good things about the undereye eraser, I'll have to try it out!!

  3. I NEED that Secret Camouflage concealer!
