Top Ten Make-up Essentials.

Call me crazy but I love talking about all things make-up. Here are a few of my favorite make-up essentials. I don't have one brand that I am loyal to. I carry a hodge podge of brands. (I'm linking up with Amanda's Top Ten Tuesday link up)

Make Up Forever Primer

I use the green one because I have a lot of red tones. It's also a great moisturizer.

Make Up Forever HD Foundation

A friend of mine who is a professional make-up artist recommended this one a few years ago. I LOVE it. It's a little bit of a heavier foundation but it lasts all day!

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer 

I have been using this one for years. I've always have had a problem with dark circles under my eyes and even more so now that I have two munchkins. But with this concealer I can make you I got 10 hours of blissful uninterrupted sleep. ;)

Benefit Pressed Powder

This is great for any shine that you need to get under control. We don't want to look like we've had an oil spill on our face!

Nars Blush and Bronzer Duo

I have the one with the Laguna bronzer. Yeah, yeah, I'm too embarrassed to actually type out the name of the blush. But I can NOT even begin to tell you how amazing this duo is!! LOVE, LOVE!!

Benefit High Beam

Another one that I have used for years. I love adding this if we are going out for the evening. It adds just the perfect amount of highlight on the cheeks.

Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Palette

This is a great set for the smoky eye look.

Benefit Badgal Lash Mascara

I rotate with my mascaras. This is what I am currently using.

Tarina Tarantino Cameo Lipstick

I love this versatile color's matte finish. 

After applying the lipstick I put on this great lip gloss and I'm all set!

What are some of your must have's in your make-up bag?


  1. I don't usually wear makeup but I do have mascara in my bathroom drawer that I occasionally use. I also recently won some eye shadow so I'll have to put that on for my hubby one of these days ;). I love, love my lip balm. Might not be considered makeup but that's something I always use.

  2. I'd consider that make-up. I use burt's bees lip balm. It's always on hand. :)

  3. I love learning about new make up! I could never live without my eyeliner :)
