I was “tagged” this week on Instagram to post a photo of my “5 makeup essentials.” Here are 5 items that I am currently loving and use pretty much each and every day. {You might notice that there are no lipsticks or glosses in this pic. That’s because I am a lip product lover and could easily do a separate post…which I just might do…on my 5 favorite lip products! It’s way to difficult to just include one!}

1. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eye-Liner. In my opinion, this is one of those beauty products that you use once and then use forever. I have been wearing this liner for years. It applies super smoothly, wears all day and the small pot lasts forever! I wore this liner in “Ivy Shimmer Ink” on my wedding day, wear it in “Chocolate Shimmer Ink” everyday and wear it in “Black Ink” for dressy occasions and night-time. Love it!

2. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. I was introduced to this product about a year ago and it is hands-down my favorite concealer to date. I love that there are two shades to blend, it’s long lasting and is a miracle-worker for covering anything from hyper-pigmentation, acne, blotchiness and under-eye circles.

3. Yves Saint Laurent “Touche Eclat” Foundation. This one is a new find. I was on the hunt for new foundation about a month ago and talked to a Beauty Stylist at Nordstrom, who recommended this foundation as light and luminous. It is just that! If you are in a Nordstrom or Sephora anytime soon, I highly recommend you sample it!

4. Arbonne Bronzer. I truly couldn’t face the world without bronzer! I have been using and loving this bronzer for years and love it’s even “sun-kissed” color.

5. MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara. Though I am not a fan of the name, I am a big fan of this mascara. I stumbled upon this mascara a few months ago and am astonished that I hadn’t tried it before! In fact, I was talking to a Nordstrom Beauty Stylist today who told me this is her favorite mascara out of all the lines Nordstrom carries…and it is one of the least expensive! It’s a 2-in-1 mascara that lets you choose if you want lashes to be naturally defined, or instantly combed and loaded for full-on drama.

Stylishly yours,

lauren sig-01
