my daily beauty routine.

I've been using the same face/beauty routine for a couple months now, so I figured I would share it! Also, all of these products are cruelty free.

For starters, here's an unedited picture of my face on a typical weekday:

1. Milk Makeup Blur Stick (Mini) / $14 / Sephora
I put this on after my moisturizer has dried and it's a great primer for blurring my pores.

This is a pretty opaque BB cream so I use it as a foundation because it's not too heavy.

I absolutely love this concealer—it's the perfect companion to the BB cream because it provides more intense coverage in areas where I need it—particularly my under-eyes because the dark circles struggle is real.

This keeps the BB cream and the concealer in place, and adds a little extra blurring.

I went back to this after a stint with Colourpop's Brow Boss because even though it's a bit pricier, it's so reliable for both filling in my brows and keeping them in place.

I use this dark brown liner pencil for my under-eye line so that it doesn't compete with the black of the top liner—without the under-eye line, I end up looking a bit weird. 

I have tried a lot of black liquid eyeliners over the years, and this one is my favorite—once it goes on, it does not move at all. 

I've been trying to find the perfect mascara, and this is the latest contender—so far, I'm very impressed! Bonus points for the pretty packaging.

This lineup does not include eyeshadow (which honestly I don't put on as much as I'd like to because I'm running on a tight schedule most mornings), but if I have time for it it goes in in between steps 5 and 6.

This sweater is one of my favorite nerdy pieces of clothing, I think you can see why—adorable Star Wars critters and a peter pan collar.

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Her Universe
Skirt: Loft
Tights: Target
Shoes: DSW
Earrings: LouLou, old

I've worn this outfit twice in the past month, I love it so much. And I tend not to repeat outfits too often. I need to find a few other things to style this porg cardigan with, but for now, this blue skirt is a perfect fit.

five photo friday: Sonoma, CA

Happy Friday! Here are a few photos from our trip to Sonoma, California last month. It's really hard to pick just five because we did a lot in a week, and I took a lot of pictures.

luna love.

I'm about twenty years late to the Sailor Moon bandwagon, but here we are. Naturally, my favorite character is Luna, and so I couldn't resist this Luna top (from Hot Topic, of all places).

What I'm wearing:
Top: Hot Topic
Dress: H&M
Tights: old
Heels: DSW

This outfit is an interesting mix of super casual and then kind of fancy shoes. But I think it works. More importantly, how cute is this shirt? It's definitely the layering over dresses type of shirt, but it will work with a few different dresses.
