Beauty Survival Kit

I turn 31 today, and I’m semi ok with it (even though I don’t want to say i’m officially in my 30’s). I have always loved makeup and beauty products. I love anything from lotion to counselors and especially eye makeup, I love changing up my look with different color shadows.  Macy’s recently contacted me and asked me to share their Beauty Survival Kit. There was no way I was going to say no to that, after all I love me some beauty products!!!



The average woman has less than 30 minutes to get ready for her day. That is not a long time at all. Macy’s compiled a panel of experts (Elle Fowler, Keltie Knight, Cara Brook, Carly Heitlinger, Christine Mielke, Kate Bryan and Jamie Stone) to share with you what they think is super important to have in your kit and a few things that some just can’t do without. Check them out for even more tips.  Everyone’s list will be different as well have different styles and likes. Feel free to take a snapshot or your kit use #MyBeautySurvivalKit and tag us @topnotchblog. I want to see what you like.



One thing I can’t live without is mascara. I used to not wear it (what was I thinking?), but now it’s a must have. Macy’s sent me barMinerals Flawless Definition mascara. I love, love, love it!!!!

In the spirit of giving, Macy’s wanted to give one lucky winner a mascara as well to try out. Like I said earlier, today is my birthday, so I also want to celebrate and give a prize. I have found a few of my favorite beauty products and put together a little survival kit of my own. What’s even better, I am giving one lucky winner the whole kit (including the mascara from Macy’s). This kit is valued at over $200 and includes a cosmetic bag from Thirty-One, perfume from Dior and so many more items. Go HERE to enter to win.

  7. I simply must have a great primer to even out my skin, concealer to hide my dark circles ( prefer Mac), mascara to open my eyes (Love Diorshow!!!), a lip gloss, and a power play perfume. I'm not myself without at least these essential items!

  14. I don't wear much makeup these days, but I look dead without mascara and lipstick. My skin is also sun damaged from getting burned as a child and I need a good moisturizer with sunscreen and then concealer to cover the brown spots that seem to get worse and worse. I am not sure which one I would choose for my one must have when I really need sll of the products I referenced above.
