Tried and True

With fall setting in and trends sprouting up all over the runways, it doesn’t seem like the time to think about tried-and-true basics and staples. We’re all lusting over newness, yet when you’re in a rush, there is little more comforting than knowing what you can grab to complete an always classic, clean look.

I’ve been packing up to move and have set aside my simple wardrobe staples to choose from and it’s actually been a bit refreshing because it reminds me what I wear most, what I miss wearing in my closet, and some of the holes that need to be filled. But wardrobe staples are nothing without the beauty essentials that I live by to give me some polish and keep me from looking like a hot mess. So I assembled a couple shots to share the products I can’t go without– from a simple gold necklace and my Warby Parker shades to my Maybelline Great Lash!

{Top image, from left to right: Michael Kors watch, Catbird rings, heirloom necklace and ring, Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Lover (perfect bright red that I like to dilute with lip balm), Essie nail polish in Mademoiselle (just a hint of color for a no-muss manicure), Balenciaga perfume, Warby Parker shades}

{Bottom image, from left to right: Essie nail polish, Balenciaga perfume, Nars blush in Orgasm (the most flattering peachy shade), Clinique Dramatically Different Gel moisturizer (super light and refreshing), Lorac concealer (very blendable and brightening), Kiehl’s Super Fluid SPF 50 sunscree(dries super quickly) Maybelline Great Lash mascara (I’ve never used anything else, works like a dream), L’Oreal True Match powder, Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick, Maybelline Stiletto liquid eyeliner in black}

    • Thanks for the tip! I’ve been toying with the idea of a brow pencils for years, and I tried one but couldn’t get the right shade. I will definitely look into it!
