These items are pretty much my holy grail products that I use daily. As you can see it's a pretty even mix of drug and department store products.
- I always start with Boscia BB Cream. I have pretty decent skin (as far as blemishes go), so I don't need (or like) a super heavy foundation. This one is perfectly sheer and natural. I mix it with ELF Shimmering facial whip for a dewy look. I've tried several highlighting creams and I really like this $1 version the best.
- I am really loving the new Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. It's nice and compact and has everything I need on a daily basis.
- Next, I always heat up* and curl my lashes with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler that I've had for 20 years. I love it, and wouldn't think of using another. After trying every mascara made, I've finally settled on Loreal's Voluminous in waterproof carbon black. Fair warning--it is very difficult to remove. I love it so much, however, I'm willing to deal with that.
- Finally, I my favorite lipstick/gloss is Maybelline's superstay stain/gloss. The formula is amazing, and it never creeps anywhere it doesn't belong. And when all else fails, I just slap on some lemon drop EOS lipbalm, and call it good.
*I use my hair dryer to do this for about 10 seconds and then test it on my hand before I touch my eyes with it.
