My Perfect Red Lipstick

Lipstick is arguably my favorite makeup product. I have a pretty extensive collection, but as it grew, it had become apparent I was missing my perfect red lipstick. Every girl has one; that red lipstick that not only compliments your skin tone, but also adds that extra bit of confidence. When my mom was in town for my birthday, we went on the hunt to find it. While at the MAC counter trying on all their reds, I put on one that my mom and I both immediately loved: Ladybug. It was so perfect. My mom has always called me ladybug (we even have matching ladybug tattoos!) Now every time I put on Ladybug, I smile.

Beauty Blender

I decided to try the Beauty Blender based off of rave reviews from my co-worker. I was a little skeptical that it would make much of a difference compared to my usual foundation application (my hands), but after the first use, I was hooked. The coverage is flawless and leaves a slightly dewy finish. I love the pointed end for targeting blemishes and dark under-eye circles. I am also using a lot less product - always a plus! I went with the Beauty Blender Pure for sensitive skin after reading Amazon reviews of the original hot pink sponge bleeding color, so beware if you try it!

Currently Obsessed

I found this cream leather crossbody bag at the Joie sample sale yesterday for $25 (a steal compared to the $388 price tag!)
I'm in love with the rose gold hardware & fringe details. This bag will definitely be my go-to all summer long.
