{Tonight, I have a much-needed hair appointment with my lovely friend who is ready to answer your hair questions! Get those questions in now so I can share her wisdom with you tomorrow!}

I have absolutely no expertise in the area of make-up. I also don’t spend a lot of money on it.

But I do wear it every day and I do have a few make-up items I must have in my cosmetic bag at all times…

L’oreal Bare Naturale – This has been my go-to foundation for the last two years and I love it! It is light, but covers well. It also contains SPF 19. I know there are lots of mineral make-ups out there, but this is the one I tried first and I loved it! {I may be wrong, but I think it is a little cheaper as well!}

L’oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara – I found out about this mascara from my sister’s wedding and I’m sticking with it. I’ve never had clumping problems with it and it held up well to my roller coaster emotions during the wedding!


Bath and Body Works Liplicious – I’m not a big lipstick girl, but I do like a little color on my lips and this is just the right amount. Frozen Blackberry is my favorite, but I also love Caramel Latte. I’ll have to check out the new colors this year!

Cover Girl Eye Shadow in Champagne – I must always have this color eye shadow on hand. It is the color I use for every day, as well as the base for special events. Very neutral but with a little shimmer!

Wet ‘n’ Wild Lip Gloss – I already mentioned lip gloss, but this one I use for blush! The color I use has hints of pink and gold, but you can pick any lip gloss that fits your skin tone and doesn’t look clown-like on your cheeks 🙂

Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner – Eyeliner can stress me out, but not with this self-sharpening eyeliner! It is great for everyday looks so I keep one in espresso and one in charcoal on hand at all times!
