Rodan + Fields
Unblemish Oil Control Lotion + SPF 20: This moisturizer is the best. It moisturizes and controls oil at the same time, and the SPF 20 is necessary for the Texas sun. I use it every day.
e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set: I recently discovered makeup setting sprays, and was pleasantly surprised to find out they really do work. I mist it on my face after applying my makeup, and the makeup stays put all day.
Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara: My favorite mascara. It’s great if you have wimpy eyelashes like me.
Sunglasses & case: I never buy expensive sunglasses, because I break them way too easily. These are from Target, and they go everywhere I go. The case belonged to my mom; I remember her using it when I was little. Somehow I’ve acquired it, and I love it. It’s a little bit nostalgic, vintage and fun.
Phone: I spend a lot of time in the car, and I’m a podcast junkie, so I use my phone to catch up on my favorite podcasts while I’m on the road.
Makeup pouch: My makeup bag almost always stays in my purse, so if I’m running late, I can do my makeup whenever I get to where I need to go.
