I do not wear much makeup. I can put my essentials into one small bag. I have never worn foundation or powder before so I cannot pretend to be an expert at any of those. I have never received a makeover either. I just know what I like to wear and what looks good on me. I wanted to share my essentials for you and maybe you will find something you love as well :). I am sorry for the worn look of these items. I have had some of these FOREVER!
From Left to Right:
Mascara– L’Oreal Paris Double Extend. This mascara is amazing! It makes my eyelashes look so long. The best thing about this mascara is the way it comes off. You do not need makeup remover and you do not needed to worry about loosing any of your lashes. When you get it wet it just comes right off in tubes! Get it here, or at your local drugstore.
Eyeshadow Pallet– The Nudes by Maybelline. This pallet has everything from cream to black. It has all the nudes and browns you need! I love the natural look of wearing brown. It goes with my eyes. If you have green or blue eyes, these pallets come in colors that would work for you as well :). Get it here, or at your local drugstore.
Bronzer– My bronzer is from Mac. I have had for over 6 years and there is still a lot left. I wear it every day! You HAVE to have it! It is the best bronzer I have found. It is very light on your face and gives you a beautiful shimmer. Get it here, or at MAC.
Blush– Orgasm by NARS. This is NARS top-selling product. You cannot go wrong with this color. It is gorgeous! It has a light pink and gold tone. Get it here, or at Nordstrom or Sephora.
Lipgloss– Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain. I love every color in this. It lasts forever and the colors are so vibrant. This color here is called Passion. It is a pretty purple/burgandy color. You can find all the colors here, or at your local drugstore.
Concealer: Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer by Maybelline. I live by this concealer!! I use it for all of my spots and under my eyes before I apply the bronzer. I cannot tell you enough how amazing it is. It is soooo light on my face.It comes off on a sponge so you have a lot of control over how much you apply. It has lasted me forever. Get it here, or your local drugstore.
Brows– The eyeshadow pallet at the very far right is for my eyebrows. I have naturally thin eyebrows so I have to give them a little help. I don’t really like to pencil them in. I feel like the eyeshadow powder gives it a more natural look. You need to find the color that best matches your color. The color I have here is Bali by NARS. The brush I use is a very fine brush from Sephora. I will be giving a tutorial on how to use the brush and eyeshadow to give you fuller brows later on.
You just cant beat Nars! LOVE their products… I slowly add more and more to my collection! http://www.GlamKaren.com
