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.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
