Makeup Necessities

In the morning, I don't have a lot of time to fuss around with makeup.  I work long hours, too, so I'm not about to paint my face with tons of makeup, only to clog my pours & look like a oil slick by 5pm.


Here are my everyday go-to products starting from the top left:

1. Nars Bronzer/Blush combo in Laguna/Orgasm.  A necessity for EVERY girl.  I love both of these colors endlessly & love that they come together!
2. Laura Mercier Matte Translucent.  For blotting/setting my makeup & touch-ups throughout the day.
3. Supper BB Cream.  For those of you who don't know what BB Cream is, it's like an Asian version of tinted moisturizer with anti-aging, anti-wrinkling, & anti-acne agents... So it's actually SO much better than tinted moisturizer!  I've blogged about it in the past & have gotten a lot of my friends & family members hooked.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.
4. Ulta Lip Liner in FLESH & Blistex.  This is my go-to combo for everyday.  Looks natural, but gives your lip a nice full, moisturized look.  
5.  Benifit Brow Kit.  Comes with a little angled brush, 2 shaping colors for your eyebrows & a mini tweezers.  Compact & perfect for on the go!
6.  MAC Palliate.  The lower corner shadow (the one I use mostly, obviously) is SHROOM.  I use it on my brow-bone & in my tear ducts for that "refreshed" look.  I also LOVE the brownish color above it called Corduroy.  Other colors are Cranberry (honestly, I don't use this one much at the moment) & All That Glitters (good for the lid).
7.  L'oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black.  I've been using the same mascara since I was about 4.  No seriously, since the beginning of time.  I don't think I'll ever change, either.
8. L'oreal Le Grand Line & Define Pencil in Cafe.  I use this eyeliner on my lids by lining my upper eye-lash area with a SUPER thick line & then smudge it up to my eye-crease.  Then I use Corduroy over the top to "set" it & Shroom to finish.

  1. i work long hours as well, so for the office, i tend to stick with some foundation and finishing powder, and then my mascara. for dinners with clients, the occasional subtly glittered eye shadow or muted lip stick.
