taylor sterling beauty picks

I have been wanting to start a beauty bit on the blog for a while now, but always feel as though my own beauty picks are so boring. Taylor, from Sterling Style was kind enough to step in and share her picks with us! We "met" online and share a passion for crossfit and style; blogging brings all the right people together. Thanks Taylor!

I'll admit it, I'm a beauty junkie. I love the thrill of finding a new amazing lipstick or perfume. I especially love shopping for beauty products during the spring and summer. Everything is so bright and cheery. When it comes to my beauty staples I believe that a light concealer, bright lips, blush and mascara can get you through any occasion. But, if you have time a great nail color and a spritz of sweet perfume take it to the next level. Here are a few of my favorites.

{1} A light illuminating concealer to brighten dark circles: YSL Touche Eclat
{2} I never leave the house without sunscreeen: Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control
{3} I have yet to try this, but I it's definitely on my list: Rodin Oilio Lusso Face Oil
{4} My signature perfume. It's sweet and spicy: Chanel Chance Perfume
{5} A pretty pop of pink for your nails: Chanel 'Rose Insolent' nail polish
{6} An amazing mascara that really adds volume: Dior Show Mascara
{7} The perfect lilac pink color (and a favorite of the J. Crew stylists): Nars Lipstick 'Funny Face'
{8} The best blush and bronzing duo ever: Nars Organsm/Laguna Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo


H Jackson Brown quote: Don't say you don't have enough time

Sigh. I must remember this, as I find myself saying, "I don't have enough time" all too often.

These tiny brooches from Boo and Boo Factory scream "PARTY!" I would wear one of these whenever I felt like having a mini party on my shirt.

I'm going nuts over this Shabd collaboration with Baggu. Those totes look a lot like cloud prints, no?
