My Beauty Faves

I wasn't tagged by anyone, but after reading Ms. J.Rose's list of beauty favorites, I thought it'd be fun to share mine.

My Beauty Favorites

Foundation: Right now I am in love with my Everyday Minerals foundation in Light Medium. I've used other kinds, like Clinique liquid foundies, and Laura Mercier. But so far nothing beats EDM's superb coverage and affordability. Oh, right now I'm also loving L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation.

Mascara: Maybelline Volum' Express TurboLash Mascara. The fat curved brush really keeps the curl in place, and the formula makes my lashes thicker, without making them crunchy. It's waterproof, yet easy to remove! A true winner!

Blush: Jordana Blush in Stardust. It's a peachy-coral. I love it on the apples of my cheeks.

Eyeshadow: M.A.C e/s in All That Glitters, NYX e/s in Sahara (soft beige w/shimmer) and Volcano (shimmery red-brown).

Day Cream: Been using Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for a good two years now. It's never too oily, and gives you a fresh, even glow.

Lipstick: NYX round l/s in Harmonica (shimmery baby pink) and Iced Honey (shimmery honey-beige)

Beauty Product Brand: NYX if you're on a budget, and M.A.C if you can afford it. I go for both.

Essential Beauty Product: Facial moisturizer. Without it, I can't wear foundation. And chapstick. If I forget it at home, I'll buy one while I'm out!

Favorite Beauty Product: Makeup primers. I am always on the hunt for a good primer. Right now I use the one from NARS, but I'm almost out.

Perfume: Miami Glow by JLo and Chance by Chanel

Nails: I like OPI's Chapel of Love on my toes. It's a bright pink with coral shimmer.

Feet: Must be clean before I jump into bed. I moisturize them maybe only once a week. I wear covered shoes to work, so out of sight, out of mind.

Hands: I like the thick lotions from Gold Bond. They don't make my hands feel slick, and keeps them moisturized the whole day.

Three Products to Bring on a Deserted Island: rope, knife, and a blanket. And my bf too, since he's good at fixing stuff.

Woman I Adore for Her Beauty: My mom. She's been a single mom for a little while now, and needless to say, she's doing a great job. She also looks younger than her age. I need to know what her beauty secret is.

Woman With the Best Sense of Style: I hate to admit, but I like how Lindsay Lohan dresses. And Jessica Alba. Also, my middle sister has awesome style. It's eclectic, yet very pulled-together, especially on her budget! She'll wear a t-shirt from Phuket, a sweater-vest, cut-off shorts and chucks and make it look GOOD!

My Ultimate Dream (but I do not believe in selling my soul to the devil for it): Go back to school and start my own business.

How Do I Define Womanhood: Knowing when to say no to things that will bring you down. Also being able to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and financially.

My Favorite Fashion Publication: I get Glamour and Allure every month :)

I tag Chiara, L, and Gee!
