I wasn't really raised wearing a lot of make- up... ok, I never wore make-up at least not until say ...college. I've often said that it takes too much time, that it costs too much etc... excuse after excuse, needless to say me and make up have never been good friends, but today at my Mom 2 Mom meeting I finally realized how great make-up can be and how cheaply you can buy it. Today I was ask, if you were on a desert island and only had one item from your make up bag what would it be? This morning my answer was very quickly Lip Gloss! I love it and honestly it's the closest thing to make up that I wear almost every day! So, today I'm doing a quick run down of "What's in my Make-up Bag?" please feel free to share what's in your makeup bag as well and what you wouldn't live on a desert island without, I'd love to know your thoughts.
Mascara- I've used several brands including Mary Kay, Avon and I've just recently discovered the best Mascara in the world! That's right... it's BestVolumeLash by Cover Girl. ($8 Walgreens)The orange tube with the plastic bristle brush- That's the secret to less clumping. Also, I've heard that one MUST have an eyelash curler in ones arsenal. Of course I'm still scared of this tool, so I'll let you know when I decide to face my fears and give it a go! I also learned another secret of instead of brushing your lashes straight up or down to brush then out towards your ears to fluff them more.
Eyeliner- Who knew this was such an important item? I've never really been a fan, thinking it was soo hard to put on, do you go all the way to the inner eye or just halfway, what happens if I poke myself in the eye? This was honestly one of my biggest fears with this, but with a little practice it'll amaze you! I'm not real particular on brands just keep it sharp. I even have some friends that get it tattooed on, which is definitely appealing. Can you say birthday gift list?
Lips- For my lips I've discovered Cover Girl LipStain! This stuff is amazing! You can eat and drink and everything and it'll STILL stay on! It's amazing! top it off with some lip gloss and you are good to go for several hours! ($9 at Walgreens)
Lipgloss- I've recently discovered at Walgreens- Jordana Lipgloss ($2). I've also used Avon, Mary Kay and even some others I've picked up at different places along the way but I never spend more then a couple bucks on this item. But it is fun to try new colors and this is an inexpensive way to do it.
So, those are a few of my favorite things in my Make Up bag right now... maybe next week we'll talk about What's on my IPOD!
Enjoy and look pretty!
