Happy Thanksgiving Eve! We drove up to Long Island early this morning and I am so happy to be back in my hometown, even if it is only for a few days – there is something so special to me about driving around the island during this time of year.
I am especially happy to be home for Thanksgiving; it is my favorite holiday – mostly because of all of the delicious dishes that come with it: homemade cranberry sauce; sweet potato casserole with marshmallow topping; turkey with homemade stuffing; pumpkin pie . . . I could go on and on. But also because I get to spend quality time in the kitchen and at the dining room table with my family.
Since we left so early this morning I didn’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup. However, being that I am crazy and makeup obsessed, I didn’t want to leave the apartment with a completely bare face, either! Here are my essentials for when I want to brighten my face, look awake and feel somewhat put together:
- Nyx blush in Amber
- Maybelline the Falsies Big Eyes
- Le Metier De Beaute Dualistic Eye Pencil in Noir (on the waterline only)
- Stila Lip Glaze in Sugar Plum
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Eve – and if you have to fly/drive anywhere today, safe travels!
