Show Us Your Life: All About Makeup!

Don't forget to enter my Southern Living cookbooks giveaway here!!!!!

Today, I'm going to link up with Kelly's Korner for what I think is the first time! 

Show Us Your Life: All About Makeup!

This is a GODSEND, I'm talking MIRACLE WORKER!!!! I have oily/combo skin, and my eyeshadow and liner will slide off like I've been on a 3 day binge or something. This stuff keeps my shadow and liner in place and seriously, if i don't wash my face [bad i know!] often i wake up in the morning and my eye makeup still looks fabulous. This is totally worth it!

For awhile I was wearing Make Up For Ever's HD foundation, but I wanted to try something new, and I'm really glad I did. This Tarte foundation is great if you oily/combo skin because the clay helps to absorb that oil. Does it make you have "normal" skin? No. But less oil is always okay for me. #thereisnosolutionforoilyskin
The only con for me is that it doesn't come in a lot of shades such as the HD foundation. So you might have to buy two colors to mix together if you're in between shades or play around with a bronzer. 

Like Kelly, I really like the Naked palette. I too splurged when I got a gift card for Sephora or Ulta for Christmas or my birthday or something. 

I usually use the Mac's eyeliner in stubborn brown when using the neutrals of the Naked palette. I also like this eyeliner because it enables me to draw a pretty clean precise line!

Nars blush in orgasm is awesome! It's a great neutral that looks good with UD's Naked or just to have a little color on your cheeks when you don't want to put on the "full face." 
My other favorite eyeshadow is by Stila. It has lots of pigment and stays on all day with help of the primer potion above. I have hazel eyes, which really pop out when I wear purple shades such as plum. My 4 favorite Stila eyeshadow colors are barefoot contessa, grace, wheat, and kitten.

I use a plum shade of this Smashbox Always Sharp eyeliner. I'm still on the fence about it. Every time you twist the cap, the liner is sharpened. The first one I had still had quite a bit of liner in it, and the pencil broke off and wouldn't come out. Sephora exchanged it, and I'm just hoping that it was defective. Haven't had any problems out of the new one. 

I saved the best for last! I love love love this Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink. It looks super bright, but I assure you it doesn't look like that. I love it!!! I happen to love Bobbi Brown products in general:)

The eyeshadow primer and BB blush in pale pink are favorites of mine, too! Great picks!

You pretty much just summed up my makeup essentials. Throw in a little mac lipstick along with the Urban Decay, Tarte and Nars and you have my daily wears!
