I love a good cat-eye. There’s a good chance I have a mini cat-eye on every time you see me…but when it comes to makeup in general–I rarely wear any; mainly because I’ve found that my skin is brighter/glossier when there’s no extra powder/foundation on it. I’ve also noticed that regardless of how many foundation colors I’ve tried–liquid, powder, matte, mousse etc…I can never find my proper color. I have a yellow undertone with a hint of peach and olive. Go figure. So I’ve learned to ditch all of it and work with what works with me. I never use any face makeup at all-not even a tinted moisturizer, I just use a regular sunscreen with a matte finish. Here are some of my favorite things that I use almost daily to create my makeup look. One thing I will never skimp on is a good lip or a sharp cat eye. Below are some of my favorite things:

Mario Badescu Facial Spray


This facial spray is a real hidden gem. I not only use it as a setting spray after sunscreen, but I also put it on after I wash my face at night. Sometimes if it’s a hot day ill spray my face, neck/collarbone and decolletage. It adds this really pretty sheen and also smells so good. The aloe and rosewater are really hydrating for your skin as well.

Aveda “stress-fix” Rollerball 


This is one of my most favorite things! AVEDA is an incredible sponsor of my nonprofit and handed these out this year at one of our events. I now have their lotion, bath salt, concentrate oil and concentrate rollerball. The scent is pure bliss.

Physician’s Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls 


Who needs a crazy expensive highlighter when you can use these organic pearls? Need an extra glow? This was actually my mom’s mineral glow that I tried once and fell in love with. My mom wears even less makeup than I do so I know if something is in her makeup drawer, it’s GOOD.



GO FIND THIS NOW. Worth every penny. This lip balm is something I use in the morning and at night. I use it under and on top of my lipstick–depending on the look I am going for. It is honestly a multi-purpose balm. Weird trick I love–if you’re ever in need of a quick pick me up with your skin, add this balm right above your cheek bone for an added glow.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Baci


It was a real mission finding this color but when I did, I fell in love. It’s the perfect mix of lavender, nude and dusty pink. Very natural and a very pretty everyday color.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 70 


This is my favorite favorite FAVORITE sunscreen. I use it everyday and that’s honestly the only thing I put on my face. Sometimes I skip the rose water spray on my face and just keep my skin looking a little more matte. Protecting my skin from the sun is now super important to me because I’ve found that its the best way to keep my skin glowing and breakout free.
