What's In My Makeup Bag + Weekend Unplugging

Just Kate || Love, Lenore || Twenties Girl Style }
I'm so excited to team up with these lovely blogger gal pals with a 'What's In My Makeup Bag' collab today on Gracefullee Made. This is kind of a new collaboration for me, simply because I do not usually share my makeup in my blog. There's a first time for everything, right?

I'm going to be completely honest here.
I actually don't wear makeup. Wait. Let me clarify. 
I only wear eye makeup and the rest is all natural. My skin is pretty clear for the most part, and the best part is that when I am running late, it literally takes me about 5 minutes to do my eyeliner and then I'm out the door! HA.

My essentials are mainly lipgloss and lipstick and... my favorite perfume of course. I always carry these items with me wherever I go!
Random fact about me: I refer to all my beauty products by a first name basis. HA. Weird, huh.
ex: "Where's my Candy Yum Yum?" LOL. My friends get a laugh out of it!

With a new month always comes a new goal. I'm ready to tackle November by challenging myself to put down my phone for an entire weekend. I know we all get caught up in social media and chatting and emails, and this is me putting my foot down and proving to you guys (and myself!) that it IS possible to turn your phone off and engage in the world. I also feel like this is something that I need to do at the moment for personal reasons. With that being said, I plan on spending time with people who make me forget to check my phone and maybe read a book or two (have any recommendations??).

I know this may be a big step for some because it sure is for me. I am constantly clinging onto my phone and checking for updates. But if you guys want to join in on this challenge with me this weekend, please leave a comment or feel free to shoot me an email! gracefulleemadeblog@gmail.com

Have a great weekend!
P.S. Don't forget to enter my Wristology giveaway that ends MONDAY!

  1. Okay, I am seriously jealous right now! No foundation, concealer, blush, anything?? That's amazing and you always look flawless without it! I unfortunately cannot pull that off ;)


    Thanks so much for participating in my collaboration! I hope everyone enjoys!

  2. You always have the best lipsticks!!!!!!!!! And I am completely jealous --- I have horrible skin, and well it gets better then I get stressed and it gets worse. Constant battle, but I need my foundation + concealer every day!

  3. I love the Daisy perfume from Marc Jacobs, but I cheat and buy the roll on to save money. I wish I had clear skin like you! I would save so much time on my morning routine.

  6. Haha! No foundation! When I get super stressed, I sometimes reach for a concealer, but that's it. And as for blush... I sometimes wear it for photos. Thanks for having me for this collab! It was fun reading what everyone else's makeup was :)
