Make-up Must Haves

I’ve never cared for what I call the ‘desert island’ challenge. As in ‘if you were stuck on a desert island what one book would you bring?’ What kind of craziness is that? Who can choose just one book? Even if you up the ante to 5 books I’d sink with the ship’s library trying to decide.

So ‘one’ anything is not realistic but how about 3? With most of my days spent in sweatpants in the house I’ve actually started missing make-up and have been reviewing my make-up drawer to figure out what I love and need and what I do not (copper glitter powder- which was totally hot when I was hanging out at Club Rio).

Here are my daily go to items:

Anastasia Brow Whiz in Brunette

5 years ago if you had told me I would need to fill in my brows I would have fallen over laughing. I cursed my thick dark brows right up until Brooke Shields showed up and then I used her as an excuse to stop plucking. Why then do I now have a gap in one brow and the other ends a bit short? Who knows but this pencil and brush are the best solution I’ve found- after much trial and error.

  Nars Multiples in Orgasm

Easy to use and blends so smoothly you can absolutely wear it without any other make-up and as has been joked about ad nauseum- it gives you a healthy glow just like…

p.s. the Riveria color is my other favorite- a great soft pink

Neutrogena MouistureShine Gloss in Healthy Blush

Not so high end as the other two but my first choice was cherry Chapstick which goes with me everywhere. Anyway, this is a good inexpensive gloss, lightly tinted, that doesn’t make a mess. Another basic that can be worn without any other make-up.
What are the 3 make-up items you could not do without?

1. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Wrinkle Cream SPF 15
2. MAC Sheer Plum lipstick - not too dark but good for day and evening
3. Jane Iredale PureGloss in Black Current - looks great on its own and keeps lips moist.

I must try the Brow Whiz - my eyebrows are not improving with age. Sigh.

Thanks for the new lipstick/gloss ideas! I haven't bought something new in ages so maybe time for a trip to Sephora.
