Current Favorites: Beauty and Life Vol. 1

Hey! How have you been? Today we’ll be talking about the thing we’ve been digging lately.  Here are mine:

1) The Cloisters: located in Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, this museum houses European medieval art and pieces. My favorite is the Pontaut Chapter House. I can easily imagine I am back on the 12th century, ruminating among the stones.

2) Vitamin String Quartet: this group takes modern rock and pop songs and arranges them for string instruments. Their version of “Get Lucky” blows me away.

3) Spinach Smoothies: I make mine with fresh spinach, almond milk, bananas and golden flaxseed.

4) Korres Natural blush: You’d better sit down for this…..I think I have found my HG neutral peachy blush! Not only does this last all day on me, it’s also more natural than most other blushes I have tried.

5) Ulta Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Mink: a dark brown eyeliner that glides on smoothly and lasts for a long time. The smoothness of gel liner in pencil form, I use it on my upper lashline only because it smudges on the lower lashline. Other than that, I like it.

About themakeuptrain

Beauty/product junkie hiding behind the title of certified makeup artist (that's the excuse I use for my makeup addiction). I am a human pet to two cats, a full time college student majoring in Cultural Anthropology and an organic food enthusiast (read: organic food freak) who cooks, bakes, and has not burned down the kitchen (I'm waiting for it). New York has put up with all of this thus far, so here is where I reside. I can be reached for comments, questions, complaints, and incoherent babbling at:

    Number one on your list is just… amazing. I want to come to New York and have you take me! Here are 5 of my recent favorites-

    1. Rosemary sourdough bread from my local natural foods store. I make a grilled cheese with tomato that is is so freaking good on this bread.

    2. My backyard. I’m pretty much a hermit so I don’t venture out all that often. But the Autumn weather coming in and a chaise chair on the back porch with a book make for a perfect place to lounge.

    3. Breaking Bad. Ahhhh, only one more episode EVER!

    4. Beauty Blender. After resisting for years i finally gave into the hype and got one. It is so, so worth it. It makes my foundation look flawless.

    5. Lip stains. I no longer work at a makeup counter so I don’t have the luxury of being able to touch up my makeup every hour. But I still want my makeup to look good so lip stains are a good solution.
