beauty favs

Here’s a super long list of products I find myself using consistently. These are the items that have never let me down and always keep me coming back. This list will have items added to (aaaand possibly taken from, depending on my mood) periodically, so check back often. Share with me some of your favorite beauty items (makeup, hair, fragrance, etc)!
