Makeup Essentials

I'm always flattered when I get compliments on my makeup because I'm by no means an expert.  I just know what works for me and my skin.  You can definitely say that I'm somewhat of a makeup junkie because I love trying new products (I think I've tried every single makeup brand on the market).  I like keeping my overall look glowy and natural and the products below are just some of my all time favorites.  I've become a HUGE fan of Mally makeup over the past year.  I can't live without her volumizing mascara, and in my opinion, it's one the best makeup lines around.  What are your makeup essentials?   

Urban Decay "Naked" eyeshadow palette (clearly I have my favorite shades)
bareMinerals eyeliner in "7pm"
Shu Umera eyelash curler
Mally Volumizing Mascara (BEST mascara EVER)

bareMinerals foundation in "Medium Beige"
Mally Poreless Perfection Skin Finisher (you WILL be poreless after putting this on!)

Nars "Orgasm" blush (long time favorite)
Several of my ultra shiny (not sticky!) Mally lip glosses

  1. I've never tried Mally's cosmetics before but I love watching her when she's on tv because she seems like someone I would love to meet in real life, plus her make-up (and clients) always look fabulous.

    I have the Naked palette too and absolutely love it and use it everyday.

  18. Very simple, but I love all of the colors. You definitely have pretty skin in your photos, so maybe I'll have to give that Mally Poreless Skin Finisher a try. :)

  21. Love your mascara suggestion. Do you have any recommendations for removing mascara? I often have a difficult time removing mascara without removing a few eyelashes as well. :)

    1. I really love Neutrogena's liquid eye makeup remover (it comes in a blue bottle). It's super gentle (meaning it won't irritate your eyes) and easily removes the toughest eye makeup!
