1. MAC 217 Blending Brush
2. MAC Face and Body Foundation
I freaking love Face and Body foundation not gunna lie. I have trouble finding foundation that matches my skin tone being that I'm very very fair skinned as well as I'm entirely too picky about the finish of my skin. I have oily skin but I HATE (LOATHE ENTIRELYYYY) matte skin on myself. Most foundations that leave a glowy finish on the skin don't have the greatest staying power and end up looking separated and pretty nasty at the end of the day. Face and Body lasts on my skin all day without really changing in appearance, I have a feeling that's due to it being a water based, water resistant foundation. PLUS in the MAC pro line they make a white version (seen here) so no matter how pale I get in the winter I'm good to go!
3. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Lightscapade
SOOOO PRETTYYYYYY GUUUUUHHHHHHHH.
I don't really know what my life was before I found highlighting products? Like really? I walked around without an ethereal glow? I'm an idiot. So for years I tried to find the right product for me and being so freaking pale didn't help the situation. Once I found Lightscapade I was hooked. If you're a pale girl you need to get your hands on this gloriousness. I believe it's limited edition though so friggin get on it. GUH.
I suppose I should mention it's listed as a soft candlelit beige with multidimensional shimmer... orrr you could just look at the pictures... like a normal person. guh. so demanding.
4. Eyeshadow Primer - Too Faced Shadow Insurance/ Urban Decay Primer Potion
I don't think I could tell you which I liked more so I've included both. This is the old packaging for the Primer Potion, I believe it comes in a squeeze tube now but I still had this one lying around. I tend to keep it for personal use and the Shadow Insurance for use on others (and myself I lied... SAHRY). In my opinion these are invaluable in my kit, for people with very oily eyelids (like myself) cream shadows used as a base simply don't cut it. I've tried using powder shadows over bare lids, cream shadows, concealers, eyeliners, everything but i still get creasing. With the primers I know that my eye makeup, no matter how dark, sparkly or intricate it may be, will last. Even on days when I'm only wearing liquid liner and no shadow I tend to put the primer down first to create a barrier between the oils on my lids and the liner to stop transferring. Love 'em.
5. Duo Lash Glue (and my favourite false lashes)
P.S. I got the Cherry Blossom Lashes at beautyjoint.com they're ok... really thin but nice and flirty looking.
6. Bioderma Sensibio H2O
7. Makeup fixing sprays and refreshing sprays: Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix and MAC Fix +
8. Cargo Key Largo Blush
9. Real Techniques Brushes by Samantha Chapman
10. Eye Lash Curlers
(keeping it short and sweet... since this is unbelievably long)
1. L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Just a solid staple for me
2. MAC Vanilla Pigment
Beautiful on all skin tones, highlighter, eyeshadow, lipgloss mix-in amazing.
3. MAC Prep and Prime Skin
Love the slight glow it adds to the skin and LOVE the spf 50 face protect version
4. Jack Black Lipbalm
Works wonders, not too glossy or thick, smells great
5. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
Tried this on a whim and ended up loving it. Super fine BRUSH tip (not felt) super black, no smudging or transfer. This is my second one.
