10 Beauty Products I Swear By

This is THE. BEST. MASCARA!!! I received this mascara as a sample in an ipsy bag a few months back, and I've been obsessed ever since! I have very thin and short eyelashes and this mascara works wonders and makes it look like they are long and full!

This the the best highlighter I have EVER used. It has just enough shimmer to catch the light but it matches my skin tone so it doesn't overdo it! It is also SUPER lightweight so it doesn't look cake-y on my skin which I love!

I'm not even going to lie- this tool will CHANGE. YOUR. LIFE.
If you're anything like me, you know how annoying it is to wake up with a face full of blemishes when your skin was perfectly clear the day before!! I've been using this clarisonic along with the face wash that comes with it every night for nearly 2 months and I can tell such a difference! Not only does my skin look better- it feels better too!

I'll admit- I was skeptical about this at first. When I opened my ipsy package last month, I was surprised to find this inside since I had never received anything like it in the twelve months I've been a member. I was worried that putting oil on my skin would clog my pores and cause my to break out even more. Well, I was wrong! This oil is AMAZING for both my skin and my lips and I put it on every night before I moisturize.

 This is by far my favorite make up product I own! All of the other concealers I've used leave a little dark circle after I put on my foundation, but not this one! It's also full coverage so most of the time I use it INSTEAD of foundation! The best part is that it takes SO little to cover your entire face so one tube can last you forever!

Not only is this super affordable for a curling wand, but it also works SUPER fast! Other curling wands and irons took me 1-2 hours- this one only takes 45 minutes max! It makes curls that are soft and smooth and last all day!

This is definitely my favorite when it comes to the Naked Palettes. I have dark hair and dark brown eyes so the rose gold hues really make them stand out! Make sure to take this quiz before you buy your first Naked palette to see which one is right for you!

Let me tell y'all, this stuff is magic. I have hooded eyes so my eyelids are always super oily which made it really difficult for me to wear eyeshadow without it smearing or fading away. Thanks to this eyelid primer my eyeshadow lasts all day and metallic eyeshadows don't even lose their shimmer!

This was the first primer I've ever purchased so I don't really have much to compare it to, but I can definitely tell a difference in my make up when I use it vs. when I don't! It really helps to prevent my makeup from getting cake-y and dry and also keeps my skin super smooth!

Just like every other girl out there, I too am obsessed with taking a nice long bath and popping in a Lush Bath Bomb. But don't even get me started with how much I love their shower creams and gels!! They work as body wash, shampoo, & bubble bath! My favorite scents are Prince Charming, The Comforter, & Yuzu + Cocoa!

Navy Rain Jacket + Neverfull

Hey y'all! If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram then you have probably seen that I have recently made the decision to transition from my casual "preppy" style to a more trendy, New England inspired style. With this transition I hope to have a more consistent blog post schedule as well as improving the frequency and quality of my Instagram posts!

I've been obsessed with this Louis Vuitton Neverfull I got off of Mercari! I definitely recommend getting it off this site for anyone who is on a budget or not willing to commit to paying $1000+ for a bag! I also got a red Samorga Organizer for it to keep it neat & tidy, and I'm loving it!!

My jeans are from Aeropostale and they are perfect for people who are short like me and don't like to cuff their jeans three or four times to get them to fit! Below I also tagged a pair from H&M for my taller readers! These Apt. 9 wedges are very Chanel-esque and under $30 & are also tagged below!

This jacket has been one of my FAVORITE recent purchases that I got from T. J. Maxx for under $23!! I tagged a similar style J. Crew one down below!
