What are your take-on-a-deserted-island/have back-ups in case one breaks/buy one for all of your friends beauty items? I have a few including some that are discontinued and I’m squeezing the last drop out of them.
Stila Kitten Eyeshadow: The most perfect shade of shimmery champagne peach. I usuallly wear it as a wash but it can be dressed up with a flick of a liner. Have an eyeshadow color that needs some oomph! Layer it over Kitten.
Maybelline Smoked Kohl Eyeliner in Smoldered Chestnut: Need to go from day to all-out glamour in a minute? Line your eyes with this soft pencil and smudge, smudge,smudge. This pencil has gotten me through more beauty emergences than I could count and it looks good on everyone. Maybelline stopped making this Chestnut and my last one is down to the nub. *sob*
Urban Decay X Blush: This soft pink blush melts into my skin and makes me look like I just came back from a run or like I just heard a risque joke. The color look like it is coming from within and doesn’t shout “hey! I’m wearing blush!
Prescriptives Unmakeup in Sheer Velumn: Another discontinued item. I’ve never found a foundation that looked so natural yet smoothed out my skin. It made me look and feel radiant. If it was a man, I’d marry it.
So dear readers …. what items will always have a place in your makeup bag?
