Make-up essentials


First things first, I cut off 6 inches of my hair. Still getting used to it. Thanks to all of you wrote sweet comments and messages about the change. You guys rock! Second, I've been getting a lot of emails lately wanting to know about my make-up routine. I guess I should get on making a little video for that. Hopefully sometime soon. But in the meantime I thought I would share quickly my go-to products. Warning, I am not above buying make-up from department stores like Target. In fact, a lot of my make-up is from there. Loves it! Everything else you can find at the happiest place on earth, a little place I like to call Sephora.


The two highest questions I get with my make-up are my eyebrows and lipstick. My secret weapon for the eyebrows is Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse from Sephora. Don't let the word "waterproof" scare you. You will not have big eyebrows forever. It comes off nice and easy with make-up remover. Pretty much since Lily Collins decided to grace us with her perfect bushy eyebrows I have become obsessed. I love using this brow mousse to help fill up my eyebrows while also giving them a darker (but natural) shade. I prefer to use the "medium brown" color. *Warning to my blonde friends, the medium brown is a tad dark. I would only recommend if you have darker tones to your hair.*
Lipstick 101: If you want a heavier eye, keep a natural color for your lip and vice versa. It's all about simplicity girls. My lipstick preference is NARS "Jungle Red".

Other make-up mentionables:
Sonia Kashuk Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, Fair (color). I love using this as a base to help even out skin tone. Bonus, it has SPF built in.
smashbox High Definition Concealer, Fair (color). Perfect for those sleepless nights or for a little pick me up.
bareMinerals All-Over Face Color, Warmth (color). Perfect for that sun-kissed look. I typically only use this during the summer, but living in Florida has made this a year round essential.
e.l.f. Studio Blush, Pink Passion (color). Such a fun and pretty color.
e.l.f. Liquid Eyeliner, Black (color). It's $1.00 and gets the job done. 'Nough said.
Maybelline Volum' Express One By One Mascara. I switch up my mascara, but this is currently in the make-up bag.

  2. that brow mousse sounds like a dream! I really dislike doing my eyebrows.
    and can I have those 6 inches of hair? mine is growing out SO slow and you look beautiful with or without them.

  13. This whole make up thing always confuses me - I love hearing how other people tackle it, though! I was not blessed with an innate knowledge of how to apply or what to use so my entire make up routine is mascara (I should probably join this century, I know haha). Thanks for sharing your tips!!!

  21. I always love your makeup. You've got the best lips! Must look into that brow mousse--waterproof sounds awesome. Anytime I do my brows, I always worry they'll become a black smudgy mess, because my hair is so dark! Thanks for the tips :)

  40. First off, you have seriously amazing hair. Like stunning.

    Secondly, you look amazing in that lipstick and I am totally trying it next time I go to Sephora... even though I can't seem to get anything to look that red against my skin tone.

  42. Omg, your hair is really gorgeous, i love the color of your hair and your make up! Youa re so pretty :))

  43. I'm all about the brows right now too! My go-to is Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express Kit. I got it when I was back home in Hawaii over the summer and I'm in need of a new one! Sadly, there is no Sephora here on Guam where I live, AND they don't ship here either (what's with that, Sephora?) so I'll have to beg my sister to send me more beauty products. Lol.

  47. Love Target. What can I say...? ;)

    Your hair looks great, TJ! Mine used to be really long also and now I tend to keep it shoulder length or thereabouts. I love the length and have thus far refused to go shorter. :)

  48. You look gorgeous!
    I love a good red lipstick, whenever I feel something is missing, it always does the trick.

  51. I remember when I first got my hair cut shorter, I would run my brush through my hair, then my hand would suddenly jerk as it ran out of hair to brush - and putting too much shampoo on my hand too.

    I'm loving tinted moisturisers at the moment, so easy to slap on and go with!

    Hmm maybe...
