Hi.

Welcome to my birdie shoots. Please enjoy my daily musings of fashion,
beauty, and of course, the occasional
cocktail.




Work by 8, lunch by noon, after-work drinks by 5... most days are scheduled around where we need to be and what we need to do. Carrying a laptop or iPad, cell-phone and planner can put quite some pressure on your shoulders; so, the last thing we need is a make-up bag to weigh us down!  

After testing and trying several products over the years, I've gone accustomed to cosmetics that can work over-time and get two jobs done at once! I first started using the Benefit's Benetint in high school, when cheek stains came on the scene. It was easy enough to throw in my make-up bag for touch-ups after morning work-outs. The product itself is not only buildable, but produces the perfect rosy hue when applied! {The best part about it is that it doubles as a lip stain!}

A long-time cult favorite and all-around multi-purpose product is the Rosebud Salve. The compact tin does everything from heal chapped lips, sooth irritation, to condition skin. It's definitely one of my go-to beauty favorites, I always seem to have a tin hiding somewhere.

I've finally gotten on the B.B Cream bandwagon! After trying out a few drugstore versions I was slightly underwhelmed at so called "results". However, when I was introduced to the Boscia B.B Cream from the July Birchbox, I was more than convinced! The all-in-one formula kept my skin hydrated and well concealed all day, without looking splotchy or oily. 

Although dual brushes can be a pain to store, they're a must-have for on the go beauty application. Let's face it no one wants or needs to be carrying around 4 different cosmetic brushes. On top of that you're technically getting two brushes for the price of one, which for a decent brush will cost you around $35.  

The NARS Multiple is the perfect from desk-to-drinks companion. Adding a little glow to your skin can perk up your look and give you the appearance of being well-rested. The product acts as your own little savior sculpting and defining your face and body!

Palettes although super handy, can often be cumbersome or bulky. The Smashbox cream palette is neither of the two. In fact, it can fit into the palm of your hand! It's sleek, streamline compact features 10 shades of cream liners that will suit you from day-to-night!

What are your go-to multitasking beauty products?
