Beauty Talk



 Hi beauty's! Today I am sharing my very first makeup post with you - should we call it bright city beauty? On a day to day basis, I have a simple makeup routine: foundation, mascara, a touch of lip gloss and I am out the door. In the evenings, I will alter my routine and experiment a bit more with new products (currently adoring the 'stila Liquid Eye Liner' above that was recommended by my sweet friend, Caroline.) Whether it's a new lip gloss shade or combining the 'NARS Illuminator' with my foundation for extra sparkle, little additions like these are both refreshing and fun for a night out.

Although I love adding products to my makeup bag I sometimes have to reign myself in, as makeup can get expensive. When making the decision on what I should splurge or save on, I like to invest in a solid foundation with SPF. I have sensitive skin and the extra expense is worth it to me if it will not as easily cause a breakout. I choose to spend less on items like mascara as it tends to clump after a short period of time and I was told it should be replaced after a few months. What is your beauty routine and what are some of your favorite products to use? xx

  1. Love the products you use!! I'm fan of mixing high and low stuff - like an expensive foundation and concealer but I'll use the Gariner BB cream (that is my ultimate)!!

  2. I always love seeing what makeup other beauty bloggers wear. I've never used NARS blush, but I've been using their bronzer for like 10 years! I may have to try the blush!
