Happy Friday and Happy November! Can you believe that next month is Christmas?! Don’t worry – I’m not one to skip over holidays (eg. Thanksgiving), but every year I very much look forward to Christmas because I get to spend much needed quality time with the ones I love!

Lately I have received some requests from you, my lovely readers, asking me to share my favorite beauty essentials. In my weekly Style Sessions events I like to link up the makeup and skincare products I wore for that specific look. However today, I thought I’d share my 12 beauty essentials and give you a closer look at which products I’m using, what shade/color I wear and why these amazing products made it on my “beauty essentials” list!

It’s hard to narrow it down, but if I had to choose just a few of my very favorites from this round-up they would be…

First, this Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Facial Oil. A friend recently introduced me to this oil and I have absolutely LOVED it! It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial to aid in reducing redness and clarifying your complexion. I had never used a product like this before and now I’m wondering how I ever lived without it?!

Second, the holy grail of foundations! This Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Makeup. Believe me, I’ve tried several different foundations over the years and this foundation continues to be my go-to. It gives me complete coverage that lasts all day long, but doesn’t feel cakey or look heavy, which I like.

Finally, the cult favorite scent Bobbi Brown Beach Eau de Parfum! I wear this most days and have yet to find another fragrance that I adore as much as I do this perfume! It has hundreds of five-star reviews, so clearly I’m not alone in my love for this scent.

I’d love to hear what your favorite beauty essentials are and if we have any in common? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Also, please feel free to leave any feedback or requests on what you’d like to see more of around here. Whether it’s a specific topic or fashion trend, or a how-to tutorial — I want to cater and inspire to your interests! I hope you all have a delightful weekend!
