The girly-girl in me is obsessed with makeup. From lipgloss, eyeshadows, mascara and more, I love visiting the MAC counter and changing up my look every now and again. I adore the various hues of MAC’s tinted lipglass (gloss) and especially their eyeshadow collection. I am also a lover of Bare Escentuals mineral foundation (7). Their lightweight mineral foundation is perfect for the summer heat. A few of my recent purchases after a trip to the mall include (1) MAC’s Haute & Naughty Mascara. I’ve tried plenty of mascara in my day and it’s my all-time favorite. I prefer for my lashes to have volume + length and Haute and Naughty gets the job done! I tend to stick to neutrals and pinks on my lips. I love MAC’s ‘Sweetie’ (2) lipstick paired with (9) ‘Pink Poodle’ Lipglass and finished with their ‘Plum’ lip pencil (8). I always prep my lids with MAC’s Paint Pot (3) in ‘Groundwork.’ It works well under eye shadow and eliminates that ever so annoying crease. One of the makeup artists at the MAC counter suggested that I use brow gel to tame my eyebrows and give them a clean look. I now use MAC’s brow set (4) in ‘Show-off.’ Like many people that I know, I used to be a Carmex addict. (Oprah even did a show about Carmex and its addiction)! I have now converted to being obsessed with MAC’s lip conditioner (5). I have plenty of tubes in my office, nightstand, car and purse. I will never go back to using an eyeliner pencil after discovering Fluidline gel eyeliner (6). I love the ease of its use and the various lines you can create using the right brush. Tell us, what makeup essentials will you be using this summer?
