I don’t know about y’all, but when it comes to makeup, I’m pretty f’ing clueless. Over the last few years, I feel like makeup has become a big deal. It’s intimidating! I mean, how the heck do I use a highlighter? Or, what about contouring? How can I use lip liner when I can’t even manage to color inside the lines?
Since I have little ability to put on makeup in the morning, I like my routine simple. That’s why I love Julep’s mantra of beauty: they believe everyday looks and trying new trends should be easy, effortless, and inspiring.
Here are some of my favorite beauty must-haves:
Love Your Bare Face Cleansing Stick: At the end of a long day, the last thing I want to do is take off my makeup. But after you read any fashion magazine, you realize that shit ain’t good. So, in the spirit of being mature, I’ve decided to invest in my skincare routine. This stick is a lightweight, antioxidant-rich cleansing oil blend that melts away makeup and impurities without stripping your skin. YES. And it’s SO easy. Oh, and the oil is perfect too!
Charcoal Body Konjac Sponge: A super gentle, all-natural exfoliating sponge enriched with skin-clarifying charcoal that cleanses and detoxifies! According to Pinterest, charcoal is all the rage these days. And you guys know I love jumping on that good ol’ trend bandwagon.
When Pencil Met Gel Eyeliner: If you’ve taken a gandy at some of my pictures, you know I will rarely be seen without eyeliner. I love how many ways you can rock eyeliner and I love how badass I feel when wearing it. This eyeliner is a waterproof eye pencil with the formula of a gel eyeliner that glides on smoothly without tugging or skipping. Perfect for a girl who (like I said earlier) can’t color inside the lines.
Lip gloss/balm: We all know the feeling of putting on lipstick, gloss, etc. and getting ALL your hair stuck on it. It’s the worst, right? Luckily, I love this gloss from Julep that combines moisture, unstoppable shine and a hint of color – without the stickiness. That’s a pretty big win/win yeah? Thought so.
