In addition to being a big fan of polish i'm also a love of makeup! This is definitely something that started for me in the last five or so year, prior to that I barely wore any makeup and if I did it was at random. I started out of course with very bold and bright colors but somewhere along the way I fell madly in love with neutrals!

While most ladies and gents are fawning over the beautiful blues, pinks, and greens i'm drooling over the shimmery taupes, champagnes and matte browns. I own a good amount of makeup but somehow someway this is what I wear almost everyday.

Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze: This is my go to bronzer for contouring. Nothing drastic and I like a little glow.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Nutmeg: This is my favorite concealer. I don't really have a lot of issues with creasing when it comes to under eye concealer either but I get no creasing or flaking and the coverage is good.

Wet N' Wild Fergie Take On The Day Eyeshadow Primer: This keeps my shadow from creasing and is ranked among the top dogs (Urban Decay and Nars).

Kiss New York Aqua BB Cream in Medium Dark: This has pretty much become my holy grail foundation and if they discontinue it I would probably cry. It's been hard finding a BB cream being deeper toned and very oily. This gives nearly full coverage, is incredibly light weight AND oil controlling! What more could a girl ask for?

Sephora Microsmooth Foundation Powder in Deep Ebony: This is very similar to MAC Mineralize Skin Finish (which broke me out) and it's nice for setting my foundation (I mix it with the Ruby Kisses Banana Powder).

Milani Mineral Blush in Sunset Beach: This is my holy grail blush and it is unfortunately discontinued however I have bought backups and it lasts a long time (though i've hit pan a long time ago i've had this blush for nearly two years).

Jordana Best Lash Extreme in Black: This is my favorite mascara. I prefer this over my Benefit They're Real mascara too. It thickens, lengths, makes my lashes super black.

Maybelline Mineral Power Bronzer: This has been long discontinued but is nice in summer for a great glow. I mix this with my BB cream or just blend a little to the tops of my cheeks.

Ruby Kisses Banana Powder: I got this just to see what the hype is about banana powder. This powder leaves a ghastly white cast all over your face when used with flash photography. That really sucks because it is great for setting my face and keeping shine away. To counteract this I mix it with my Sephora Microsmooth powder and I get no ghost face.

And that's it! The whole gang together! Not pictured are my liners and lip products but those vary, any black liner and nudish gloss will do for this lady! Do you wear makeup? What are some of your favorite products? Thanks for stopping by

  1. That's quite a list. I'll admit, I have a similar list if I'm going out or it's the weekend, but my everyday/work routine is very simple and minimal.
