Best Makeup

Here it is, a grand list of the  makeup products that are my favorites, the ones that are nothing short of magic.  Try a few for yourself!  These are the best of the best.  This list is, of course, subject to change!  (Updated March 2012)

Smashbox HALO Face Powder, $59: Buildable, flawless coverage just like a foundation, only in loose powder form.  Aaand it had hydrating properties so it even works in winter when my skin is dry!

Urban Decay Brow Box, $29: Everything you need for gorgeous brows; tiny tweezers, an angled brush, two shades of powder, and wax to keep the powder and brows in place.

Physicians Formula Mood Boosting Blush in Natural, $10: Gorgeous, glowing cheeks in a shade that works whether I'm a blonde or a ginger. Plus the packaging is lovely and smells like violets!

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Taiga, $34: A pale shimmery shade from lash line to browbone and a gold-flecked pewter color in the crease is the perfect everyday eyeshadow.  It's subtle but makes a beautiful difference.

Urban Decay Brightening Makeup Primer, $31: This lightweight, nongreasy primer brightens my complexion and keeps my Smashbox powder in place all day.

NARS Lipstick in Jungle Red, $24: My all time favorite lipstick, hands down. A stunning, pigmented true red that lasts all day without being drying.

Dior Addict Lipstick in Dior Kiss, $30: When red is too much, this berry pink shade in a glossy, moisturizing formula never fails me.

Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil, $18: Makes undereye circles and other imperfections disappear!  The formula is creamy and extra-blendable.

InColor FabuLiner, $2: The sharpie-like applicator creates precise lines as thick or thin as you like, while never, ever smudging or fading.

Buxom Lash Mascara, $18: Holy grail of mascaras, this product does it all: lengthens, curls, darkens, thickens, and separates for lashes that look like falsies. It's truly magic!
