If I was stranded on an island and could only bring one beauty product with me, it would, without hesitation, be mascara. Simply applying a coat of mascara on your lashes is all you need when running late or feeling under the weather. And, to set the record straight, while some say that applying mascara to the bottom lashes is a huge faux pas, I am huge advocate of a quick one or two swipes on the bottom lashes. Don’t be afraid to do the same :)

In my beauty product hoarding experience, these five mascaras are at the top of my list. While three of them are at a higher price point than some of you might want to pay for a tube of mascara, my current favorite of my favorites is the more affordable L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. This mascara is by far the best lengthening mascara I have ever used. I just love how long it makes my lashes look. Furthermore, the small wand makes it very easy to apply.

What is your favorite mascara?

Happy Fall, y’all!
From vampy, berry lips, to dramatic cat eyes, to matte skin, to metallic nail hues, to subtle smokey eyes, these beauty products are just some of the many I would love to add to my makeup bag to keep up with this fall’s beauty trends.
At the top of my list is the Claudio Riaz Instant Face Set. While the price is steep, I feel like it is a product worth investing in. I don’t know about any of you, but, it seems like I only have 50% of the makeup on my face at the end of the day that I had at the beginning of the day. Perhaps this product is the answer to that problem.
