My Favorites: Make-up Must Have!

23 Sep

Flawless makeup is the first step in having what I call a great first impression. Maybe it’s a night out on the town, a family dinner or any spectacular event for that matter. One does not need a huge makeup collection, however, a few of my favorite items will have you on your way to achieving a flawless look. What’s not to love about my favorite beauty items…absolutely nothing, I am a makeup fanatic! Hey, I am no Oprah but below I have showcased a variety of my favorite things for your beauty pleasure. Now go out and have a shopping spree. Enjoy!

Primer: Applying a primer gives you a smooth finish by minimizing pores and fine lines before you apply the foundation. It perfects for those with slightly oily skin or combination skin.  It also protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays. My favorite is the makeup forever primer which can be purchased at Sephora.

Foundation: Must be chosen according to your skin type whether dry, combination or oily. Personally, I have quite a few different foundations, some of which I mix and others which I don’t. Another important factor when choosing makeup is the occasion in which you are attending and whether you will be wearing it out at night or during the day. Below are some of my favorite foundations which can be purchased at a variety of retail stores such as Lorac (website), Sephora (store), beauty.com or MAC. They all provide a flawless finish.

Eyeliner- Eyeliner is also important in terms of maximizing your eyes. I personally prefer the eyeliner by lorac. It gives my eyes a radiant look with just one line. It can be purchased from lorac’s website or any retailer which carries the brand

Eyeshadow- Eyeshadow makes your eyes prominent and can be coordinated to match your outfit or even your hair color. I have a variety of brands that I use. Choosing a brand which have colors that are pigmented is important. Who wants to wear yellow eyeshadow that looks pink? Not me…I have a variety of brands that I use but let’s check out my favorite below. I personally own this kit by NYX and I absolutely love it. It has all the colors you can think of and can be purchased directly on their website.









Mascara- Mascara gives you lengthy lashes that every woman desires. It also gives your lashes a prominent look with the combination of a great liner.  The brand is by smashbox and can be purchased at a variety of retailers such as Sephora. I love the fact that it’s 2 mascara in one.

Lip gloss/Lipstick- The finishing touch to a flawless look is to apply the perfect lip gloss or lipstick. Hey, if you’re a creative risk taker you can even mix the perfect combination with the right colors. Below are some of my favorites which can be purchased at a variety of retailers as mentioned in this post.
