Welcome to Beauty Diary: Seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this is a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty.

When we stopped by the offices earlier this month, beauty editor Carly Cardellino uttered the words all mascara wand-wielding women want to hear: "I have access to all make-up, prestige and mass, and I've learned that a lot of the drugstore products are just as good as the more expensive brand."

Case in point, Carly works in her fair share of Revlon and Maybelline in her week of documented beauty (when she can break from her latest obsession, Drew Barrymore's Flower makeup line). Click through for a week of favorites and new finds with this New York City editor, including the beach spray that gives her straight hair texture and how she manages to prioritize barre over brunch.
