it's so funny that i would even dare talk about my favorite makeup products
because i'm not in the loop
i am, however, flanked by a plethora of teenagers,
an 11 going on 15 year old,
who know all things MAC and are truly professional make up lovers.
let me prove my points:
1. the other day caroline asks to give me a makeover.
she then proceeds to use phrases such as
"my favorite MAC color is trax velvet"
"this powder gives a flawless finish"
"shall i give you a smokey eye or a natural eye?"
2. sweet abby passed down some makeup she no longer uses
to little bit ( said 11 going on 15 year old).
however when i saw the most gorgeous MAC set
that was going to be just a tad too grownup for her,
i explained that
i would gladly be a good steward of the set.
until she grows up a little more anyways.
3. my favorite blogger, edie, told me at the pearl event
that she had a glorious make-up post in her archives.
how did i miss that?
i vowed to read her blog, beginning to present day
to unlock her secrets.
she's at my fingertips so i can shoot over quick inquiries too
4. big mama has awesome make up tips.
she says bobbi brown's shimmer brick is a must have.
that'll soon join the inventory.
hey i'm a follower. what can i say.
back in the day
i was a makeup artist for Lancome.
i rocked if i do say so myself.
of course, bragging about one's skills two decades ago is surely acceptable.
i had the finest makeup and knowledge and skills
total package. it was awesome.
i was 20. sheesh.
if i had all those fabulous skin care items now....
now i'm just an oldie with dry skin
with chanel taste on a covergirl budget.
so after all those disclaimers,
here are a few of my favorite things anyways~
a sweet friend gave me moroccan oil as a christmas gift a couple years ago.
jackpot. awesome gift. love it on my hair, my face, my nails. love it.
my skin is super dry
i've never worn foundation until madison, my live-in makeup/fashion
expert, introduced us.
expert, introduced us.
love at first site.
it's almost like a tinted moisturizer with a little more oomph.
if i were a millionaire
this would totally be a part of my daily routine.
at $400 a jar
i'm living on samples
so if you're ever at the chanel counter & want to pull the old..
"my friend recommended that i try sublimage" and then proceed to mail
the sample to moi. we'll be best friends forever.
being a teenager in the 80's
you may be surprised to know that i don't actually wear blush anymore
except for this one.
it's almost more like a bronzer.
& yes ma'am the color is called orgasm.
text me your funny dialogue that occurs when you go to the counter
and ask for orgasm.
lord have mercy. surely named by a man.
but you'll love the color so just suck it up & do it.
aveda brow definer.
love it but obviously need to try the one edie recommends.
after i put on my little whipped mousse
i add some bronzer.
thankfully i'm all out of these
so i can now justify the bobbi brown bronzing shimmer brick. sweet!
urban decay naked 2 palatte.
what else can i say.
what i use since i can't afford what i really love.
urban decay gloss.
ya'll i'm a lipgloss hoarder.
i'm not just talking burts bees either.
i mean from chanel to mac to victoria secret to wet & wild-- i have them all
& in abundance at all times.
i always have a plethora of options.
if you ever do a photo shoot with me
you'll hear the following...
"did you bring some gloss"
it'll be on my grave marker i'm certain.
mac lip liner. awesomeness
adds a little life to my fine hair
sweet abby girl turned me on to rockaholic
bought because of the bottle and the name.
packaging snobs unite.
l'oreal mouse blush is wonderful
for just a little natural sunkissed look.
i may or may not be a tad ADD.
i'm betting you feel a little dizzy after this post
done completely out of sequential order
if you have a favorite, can't live without makeup secret
(i just realized i didn't tell you my favorite eyeliner & mascara.
black eyeliner. always.
ok...talk to me...
