What’s in my Makeup Bag?

The Daily Cookie makeup bag

Day to day, my everyday makeup routine doesn’t change that much. After years of trial and error I know what works for my eye shape, so variety for me comes in the form of lippies and cheek products. I love mixing different blushes and highlighters for the prettiest effects for instance.

The products shown are just a snapshot of what I’m wearing and loving now, but pared down without the bit of “variety” that I mentioned above.




The Summer Beauty Edit

Hum Runway Ready

Is it just me or did July fly by? I’m already back at the East Coast after my month-long internship at t+j Designs, but it seems like just yesterday that I landed in Seattle bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

I guess being so busy and operating on a schedule has something to do with it, but I’m sad to see my favorite season gone so quickly. Of course, I couldn’t let the season go by without sharing some of my new beauty favorites.



Adding Definition with Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink

Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink

The past few times I’ve gone shopping, I’ve been on the hunt for a big floppy straw hat with a black band. I can envision myself wearing it all the time this Summer with huge cat-eye sunnies and fun, bold lip colors.

Something about this look says classic yet fun to me, and I can’t imagine it without the perfect winged eyeliner. My current pick has been the Napoleon Perdis Matte Eye Ink ($28 US.



Playing with Luminosity with the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow for Summer 2014

NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow review

When it comes to eyeshadows, I like formulas that encourage luminosity and create a bright-eyed look. Naturally, I was beyond excited to see that NARS had come up with a new eyeshadow formula for Summer 2014 that promises both “luminous sheen” and intense color.

Releasing this July on narscosmetics.com, the NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29 US) will be available in 12 colors. The biggest draw for this particular product is that it is designed to be used both wet and dry to achieve different effects.



Hard Candy’s Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner POPS in New Neon Shades!

Hard Candy Walk the Line liquid eyeliner

My favorite season Summer is officially here in just two short weeks. To me, it’s all about casual and relaxed, which couldn’t describe my style more. Case in point: I’ve been living in a pair of faded, ripped denim shorts that I like to pair with printed TOMS shoes.

My makeup has been just as fun too. I love bright pops of colors on the face like fuchsia lips or a dash of neon on the eyes. Speaking of, the new Hard Candy Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner ($6 US) colors from their Spring 2014 collection are perfect for getting that Summer-ready look.
