Shopping list essentials: My favorite basics

These are products that cross over from my kit into my personal life. I can't live without them in either realm. I've tried a million different products and these are the ones I always go back to. And so, on to a list of my favorite things.....

Jurlique Moisturizer} A creamy moisturizer that works on everyone and is organic and biodynamic.

Tweezerman tweezers} They are just the best tweezers. Period.

Anastasia brow gel} I cannot bear an unruly brow. This one doesn't flake or feel like glue.

Anastasia brow pencil} A really thin pencil so you can draw the hairs on one by one.

By Terry lip balm} I never cared for rose scents, until I started using this. The smell is intoxicating. Everyone I use it on wants to know what it is.

Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler} The best eyelash curler. Period.

Lancome Virtuose mascara} I live for this mascara. Lancome is always my "go to" for mascara. They just do mascara better than anyone else. (If you're on a budget, L'Oreal is the same company is Lancome so the mascaras are similar)

Josie Maran blush} Pretty, pretty cream blush in pretty packaging that is also 100% biodegradable packaging. (Yay Josie!)

Korres Lip Butter} I love these lip butters. Great texture with just enough color. Not as scary as a lipstick but more grown up than a gloss.
