8 Makeup Must-Haves

Have you been wanting to revamp your makeup bag?


I wrote an article quite similar to this a few months ago, but the makeup world is developing at an exponential rate. With constant new products being brought to Ulta and Sephora, my makeup must-haves change. Here are my current 8 makeup staples.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

If you're like me and need a solid primer in order to have any hope of your foundation looking decent, this should be your go-to. It feels so smooth on the skin and helps give you a good canvas to get started with.

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation

There has been a lot of recent hype about this foundation, and there is good reason for it. It really might be the best drugstore foundation I've ever used. It provides great coverage and blends really evenly over the skin. Best of all, it's only $12 at Ulta.

Airspun Loose Face Powder

It is safe to say that I will never purchase another face powder as long as this is on the shelf. Although it can be a little difficult to find, try checking your local Walgreens to find this phenomenal powder. It isn't heavy, helps prevent an oily look, and it even smells good.

Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer

This favorite hasn't changed. I still have yet to try a bronzer that I love more than this one. It smells amazing and provides the perfect glow. In my case, I'm too pale to wear a very deep bronze, and this is the ideal formula for me.

L'Oreal Paris Lash Paradise Mascara

A friend told me that this mascara is even better than Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, so I had to test it out for myself. I don't know if it is better, but I would say it is as good. This mascara does an awesome job of making my eyelashes super long.

Anastasia Brow Pomade

This pomade and the Anastasia brow brush is all you need to have awesome brows. It is super simple to use and helps you achieve a full yet natural looking brow.

Essence Pure Nude Highlighter

This is one of my favorite highlighters, especially in the summer. It gives your cheeks the prettiest glow that isn't too blinding or white looking. I am not personally a fan of highlighters that are too iridescent looking.

Stila Liquid Lipstick

The shade "patina" is the one I wear almost every single day and get compliments on almost every time I wear it. It truly stays on all day no matter what I eat or drink. There is a large range of colors, but "patina" is a good everyday pinky nude.

I could talk about makeup all day, but hopefully, these 8 products are ones that you decide to try out.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
