Lauren of La Petite Fashionista


Back in the day, when Beauty Bets was young and sunspot-free, I regularly featured our friends and fellow bloggers. It was so much fun to have a peek inside their makeup bags, and even more fun to support these amazing women. I’ve been missing that community thing for awhile so, thanks to Maya’s encouragement, we are hereby reinstating our Real Beauty column. First up, the lovely Lauren of La Petite Fashionista spilling her pink picks, plus how she maintains that sun-kissed glow while living in the Midwest! Isn’t she ADORABLE?

(clockwise)  BareMinerals Blush in Aphrodisiac – This is the perfect light pink shade for highlighting cheeks. // BareMinerals Ready Powder Bronzer – I love having more of a glow in the summertime. Growing up in Florida is definitely responsible for this! This feels light and not too caked on. // Buxom Lashes – Some people have gorgeous full lashes. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people! This mascara is one of the only products that makes them feel long & luscious. // Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette – I’m obsessed with this palette. The shades can easily take you from day to night. I even use the darkest colorway as eyeliner with an angled eye brush.  // Maybelline ColorSensation Lipcolor in Fuchsia Flash – I love bright pink lips! This is a gorgeous pop of color when I want to go for statement lips!  // Urban Decay “Naked” BB Cream – Works wonders for making make-up stay on all day long and gives it a smooth appearance. // Essie Mod Squad – I told y’all, I have a thing for pink! This is the most perfect of pinks. // Not Your Mother Beach Babe Texturizing Spray – I’m totally low maintenance when it comes to my hair. I love beachy, surfer girl waves. A couple of spritzes and voila: instant summer hair!  // MoroccanOil – Seriously moisturizing & seems to magically repair hair that’s taken a beating from blowdrying and curling irons.
