My go to Makeup Products

I'm not a huge experimenter (is that a word?) with makeup. I'm not drawn to foundations as I would be a lip color or an eyeshadow palette. Once I get "in love" with a product like a foundation, I stick with it. Here are my go to makeup products and the reasons why I like them. Are your favorites different than mine?

Face Primer: Bare Minerals Prime Time- I love this primer! It is silky, helps my foundation stay in place, and controls the oil slick that is my face. A little goes a long way with this primer.

Foundation: Mary Kay Mineral Foundation in Beige 1- I have not used liquid foundation in years. This mineral foundation reduces my oil, and has great coverage. Another bonus, it doesn't make me break out.

Eyeshadow Primer: The Balm Put a Lid On It, Urban Decay Primer Potion, ELF eyeshadow primer- I couldn't choose just one! I do like all of these. I have oily, hooded lids, and while my eyeshadow still creases, these help it stay put a little while longer.

L-R Walking on Eggshells and Silent Treatment
Eyeshadow Palette: Naked 2 palette, Wet N Wild eyeshadow trios- The Naked 2 is just beautiful neutral shades that go on smoothly, are wearable for everyday, or can go for a dramatic smokey eye. Wet N Wild has the best quality eyeshadow for a drugstore brand. With a primer, they last all day, and are highly pigmented. *My favorites are Silent Treatment, Walking on Eggshells, and Knock on Wood.*

Eyeshadow Base: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded- I love putting this over my primer as a base for eyeshadow. This helps my shadow last even longer. Barely Branded is a great neutral that can go with any color you choose!

Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 liner- I like how long this liner stays on! It definitely lasts a good 8-10 hours on me!

Mascara: Covergirl LashBlast- This mascara lengthens my eyelashes and is very buildable. It doesn't clump or flake on me.

Lipstick: My lipstick choices change with my mood. You can see a few of my favorites here.
