Favorite Things: Makeup Edition

I love make up and have a LOT of it. But If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring 4 makeup items with me these would be them. These are absolutely my favorite things when it comes to my makeup...my go to's...my cant live withouts!

This is my staple! Everyday even if I am staying at home I put this on. It covers flawlessly and evens out my skin tone without over kill (at least if applied right). I have been using this compact for YEARS. Defiantly cant live without this! NC-35 is the shade I wear. For everyday use I apply this using the sponge applicator, along with my favorite concealer for under the eyes. If I want a heavier coverage, like for pictures or special events, I will use my foundation and then apply this with a powder brush for a lighter coverage.

I use many different colors of blush, but this one is by far my favorite. It is a peach color with a pearl sheer tone shimmer. I get so many complements on my skin, and really half of it is this blush! It gives a dewy, iridescent glow to my cheeks and I love that!
I get asked all the time if I am wearing fake eye lashes, and the answer is no! I'm wearing Lancome Hypnose mascara! Yes, it helps that I have been blessed with naturally long lashes, but this mascara works wonders! I have tried many different mascaras through the years; drug store brands, department store brands, you name it. This is by far the best. I continue to thank my friend that introduced it to me a few years ago because I haven't looked back.

I use many different shades of eyeshadow...and I'm not afraid to mix it up or try new things, but this is my go to eyeshadow. I use this many different ways. On days when I'm in a hurry I will use it as an all over color and just apply with eye liner ans mascara. Or I will use it as a brow bone accent color, or mix with other colors to create different looks. It's very versatile and of course, my fav!

I use all the MAC items you listed! too funny we have a lot of random things in common! one of my favorite go-to eye shadows by MAC is "honesty". it has a shimmer to it, which I love.

I hear you! I love that foundation! Although NC 35 would make me look a little silly. I'm an NC-42 type of girl. :)

I have yet to find a blush I like, I may give yours a try!

Hey Lisa-totally not makeup related...but I remember awhile back you saying something about not wanting to do a version with your baby (I think she was breech?). I was just wondering your why you opted not to...as I am weighing the pros and cons myself. Thanks in advance!

I too am a MAC addict!!!! I wear Haux eyeshadow almost every single day!! I have a ton of their shadows, but I wear Haux like it's going out of style, lol!

I've been wearing the Viva Glam V lipstick & lipglass for like 5 years now -- it's awesome!
