what is your essential cosmetic?

I remember reading in an article when I was young that every woman had one essential beauty cosmetic that is essential that she wear.  for blondes, its typically mascara. thin lips, lip stick and liner.  I've decided my one item I need and can't live without is blush.  I try not to be that girl that over does it with the blush, but to be honest, when I'm feelin pale, I know for certain sometimes I get a little friendly with it. 

meet MAC's Dollymix.  Don't be deceived by it's appearance.  It's a far less magenta on your face then what it looks like and it has a faint shimmer.  During the summer, I like to step up my glow by adding NARS' orgasm for a little extra shimmy shimmer. 

Prior to the blush I enjoy a little bit of Bobbi Brown's Bali Brown Illuminating Bronzer (on the right). Don't be fooled by the glitter look, I was nervous at first, it does not look like this on you face, it just gives a beautiful brown glow)

I'm not typically a splurger on make-up, but these are my essential items. 

Okay, I lied. If you are looking for fantastic, non sticky gloss you have to get Hour Glass origami extreme sheen lip gloss. 


  1. It's so hard to pick just one!! I think if I had to have ONE thing it would be mascara...but potentially foundation because my skin is so ugh. But really...I just love it all! Mascara, liner, blush, foundation. I remember back in the days when I just wore powder, blush, and mascara. Oh if only I had that confidence now! ha!~

  2. Ha! I wish I could only pick one...foundation, blush, bronzer, mascara, eye liner.. need it ALL! :)

  3. Hmm... about the only thing I wear regularly is mascara/eyeliner so I guess that would be mine! I am intimidated by blush ha!


I love reading your comments. You guys make my day!
