Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer

So many have asked for me for mascara recommendations, and while they aren't one size fits all, everyone can agree that flaking is a dealbreaker.

This tube (primer on one end, and black mascara on the other) is a weekday staple, as there's nary a flake to be seen by the time I've got the, kids in bed and starting to wind down. 

The primer (not critical, but recommended) conditions the lashes, and preps them to build length and thickness without inviting clumps. While buildable, I wouldn't go more than 3 coats total, and the effect is lovely. Long, gently curled lashes that both look natural and hold up throughout the day.

Cream blush is an efficient way to brighten things up after months of sun deprivation (fellow Seattleites can commiserate here). Or if you've had enough bleary eyed late nights responding to emails, and 3am fire drills initiated by a crying toddler to make utter exhaustion the new norm.

Lash curler + RMS UnCoverup + Luminizer + one of these Honest Beauty blushes are a great template to have in your kit. Particularly new moms, frequent travelers, or subscribers to the 90's no-makeup-makeup aesthetic that's enjoying a resurgence.

I love the look of cream blushes, but they always vanish on me after about 90 minutes. These little beauties, however, actually last! They're not dewy, but they're neither powdery or mattifying. It's a soft, diffused pigment with high opacity. They layer well over bare skin, cream or powder foundations. And while you could use a brush to apply, but for the sake of ease, I prefer fingertips.
