Two things that I always have in my makeup bag: a good highlighter and a black or brown eye liner. Simple essentials but boy am I picky about my basics. When it comes to highlighters I’m all about getting the right shade and shimmer. Too much of one looks obvious and achieving a natural glow is key. Sometimes I even mix it with a little foundation for an extra subtle affect. With eye liner I’m all about the consistency and how well it smudges. I wear it almost every day so I’ve had my trials with a few favorites—check out my everyday smokey eye tutorial. Nordstrom happens to exclusively sell two NARS products that I’m currently smitten with that cover my makeup must-haves: the NARS shadow stick in St. Lucia (perfect for highlighting cheekbones, forehead and bridge of the nose) and the multiple stick (easily smudges!). I’ve been taking both on the go lately because they’re perfect for mid-day touch ups.
