My Makeup Bag / Hannah.17 May 2011
Origins VitaZing: I wear this moisturizer instead of foundation. It comes out of the tube white, but somehow evens out your skin tone. An amazing, miracle product.
MAC Select Moisturecover: I don't need a lot of concealage, but I like to wear this light, pink-toned concealer to cover the blue-tones under my eyes. (With MAC, use NW shades to cover blue areas like under eye circles. Use NC shades to cover red areas, like blemishes and redness around the nose.)
NARS Laguna Bronzer: The perfect bronzer for my skin tone! It is a little pricey, but I've had this for over a year and have hardly made a dent in it.
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara: Best Mascara I've EVER used. I love finding it on sale! (I bought this for only $6.50 at Ulta by combining a sale with a coupon.) It is like false lashes in a tube.
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil: For an everyday eye, I use this black liner on my top lashes only. Smooth and creamy!
MAC Paintpot in Painterly: Love this to even out the skintone of my eyes. It is a wonderful base for shadows.
MAC Eye Shadow Quad: This is the cheaper way to go if you want to own a few mac shadows! Make your own quad! My quad has: Shroom (my favorite highlight), Soft Brown (a great all-over lid color, crease color or transition color), Twinks (fabulous crease color or eyeliner), and Woodwinked (my obvious favorite. This beautiful copper-brown looks great all on its own or is great paired with these other colors.)
Benefit Benetint: Probably my favorite makeup product. EVER. This has a dual purpose. I use it to tint my cheeks, but I also use it to pink-up my lips. It looks completely natural. Gives a rosey glow to your cheeks and makes for perfect puckers that stay a natural pink for HOURS.
Pangea Organics Lip Balm: The Benetint is a tad drying on the lips, but I don't mind. I'm addicted to lip balm, and this can be placed on top of the Benetint lipstain without fading the pretty pink. This lip balm is the most moisturizing I've ever used
