I don't leave home without my face on......

When my brother and I were little my mother used to say, "Hold on guys, I've gotta put my face on." What my mom was actually saying is she had to put her makeup on. This always happened, no matter where we were going. My mom didn't wear a lot of makeup, but I remember her ALWAYS looking beautiful and put together.

Funny thing is I have started using this saying. Isn't it interesting the things that stick with us from childhood. Anyways, the point to my story, just like my mother, I do not leave the house without makeup on. Not sure if this was a learned trait, an insecurity thing, or the fact that I just feel more put together and pretty with makeup on. Maybe a little of all three if I had to guess. I even wear a full face when I go to the gym (sometimes I skip the eye makeup though).

Again, back to the point. Yesterday I went out in public with a bare face. This was not necessarily done on purpose, but none the less, it happened. I was rushing yesterday morning to get Carson to swim lessons and barely got my teeth brushed. I was okay with hitting the pool bare faced because I had my sunglasses on, but then my girlfriend and I decided to run home, change the kids, and hit Chick-fil-a. I didn't have time to put anything on my face because it was getting close to nap time, and I knew our lunch time would be limited as it was. 

All was fine and I survived with no makeup (I was secretly praying I wouldn't run into anyone though). All of this said, this got my girlfriend and I talking about makeup and some of the things we pretty much NEVER leave the house without. You know every girl has these, but mine, I find are usually quite different from others so I thought I would share. Powder, bronzer, blush and pink lipgloss. Here are my favorites that I wear daily. 

Powder in medium beige // Blush in Berry Pop // Lipgloss in Ring Leader Bronzer in Sunkissed

My friend Kelly's were mascara, concealer, and lip gloss. I asked her what concealer she used, because gasp, I don't use any!! And that is not because I don't need it because trust me I do. I've just never found one I loved. She swears I will love this one, so I am taking the plunge on it! She also promised it will last a long time because $41.00 for concealer ain't exactly cheap :) 

So what are your 'I can't leave the house without' makeup items? No really, I want to know.

* Also thought you would like to know this cover-up that I have just got marked down almost half off!! I am kicking myself for not waiting!!! Hey, we live and learn right :) Sadly I never seem to learn ha!
Plus you can get free shipping today with the code JUSTBECAUSE!!!! They never do free shipping!!

* And these jeans that I ordered arrived yesterday. If you are in need of some amazing black jeans grab these before all the sizes go!! Plus, added bonus you get to size down because they stretch out, these are a size 25 :) You can't beat this price for Hudson jeans :) O yeah, and do you see what else came in..... my nude pumps! I loved my pink ones so much I just couldn't help myself and I know they will go with everything this fall!
Note, these jeans were a little long on me so I just rolled them up (I am kinda digging the rolled up look this year).

Last, my beautiful friend Way Way, no seriously I have a major girl crush on her is is launching her pop up shop today at Furbish! Sale starts at 11:00 am, so be ready!!

This piece I have of hers is currently needing a frame, but it's one of my all time favorites!
