I have never really been a big make up person, it is just one extra thing to do in the morning that is not totally necessary. On a daily basis, I just wear mascara, a little concealer if I need it and chapstick.  If we are going to be honest here, in majority of my blog posts I have zero makeup on. However, for certain occasions I go the extra mile and wear a little bit of eyeshadow, and face make up. With Thanksgiving and the holiday season quickly approaching, I thought I would share some of my favorite products as I will have more events to go to where I will be wearing make up. 

Pictured above are my go-to items. I never buy high end mascara, as I honestly like the ones from the drug store better. I have used a variety of different kids from Maybelline and they all seem to work great! I only wear waterproof because it stays on all day and gives my lashes a fuller look. The Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage is one of my nicer products, but it is worth every penny. There are two different shades in container and you blend them to get the perfect match to your skin. It has great coverage and I have had it since my freshman year and there is still a decent amount left. It has been a while since I have gone out and bought any new products, so let me know if you have any favorites, as I am always looking for recommendations!

  1. Maybelline also makes great concealers, their age rewind is great for dark circles!

  2. I love maybelline mascaras and I agree with the user above me with regards to their instant age rewind concealer for under the eyes :)

  3. There are a lot of great drug store brands that I feel are very overlooked! I love Benefit and Urban Decay, but right now, they aren't in my college budget. Most of my everyday makeup is from the drugstore. I do like Maybelline mascaras, but I am also a Covergirl fan! I have been using Lash Blast Volume and I really like it. I also really like NYX if your store carries it!
