Back to school shopping

These are some of my favorite makeup buys that I always re-purchase. Instead of heavy foundations I use Clinique's CC Cream in Light, it is good for balancing out your skin tone as well as hydrating your skin too. I wear it alone with a dust of Bare Minerals loose powder foundation to "set" the CC cream, though it is more like a tinted moisturizer and really does not need to be set unless you want some more coverage. I love the airbrush concealer by Clinique too, it is a light formula and really brightens up the eye area. If you like to use liquid formulas for contouring and highlighting, this would be good. After purchasing Benefits' Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit, I love how long lasting and pigmented this shadow is! I really wanted a pinky nude color to put on quickly in the mornings before class. Lastly, I picked up the hydrating mineral veil since I need to add extra moisture to my face beyond my moisturizer and CC cream with the anti-acne products I use. Normally I am prone to oily skin, but after getting different topical creams for my acne, my skin has become more dry.

Not too big of a shopping day, but I did pick some things up online too. I was able to purchase this button down, which is super soft, as well as two scarves that I couldn't find online. Nevertheless, I ordered two pairs of jeans at Zara and the much coveted Kate Spade backpack I have wanted for awhile, and I got it on sale, which helped a little with the price, but I will definitely be using it for many years to come.
