AHHHHHH, I’m posting myself without make-up!!!!! I have a secret- at one point in my life I wanted to be a make-up artist. Now I don’t even have time to put make-up on, BUT I still LOVE make-up and I’m ALWAYS searching for the next best thing. Here are my three beauty items that I couldn’t live without! If I was on the show survivor and I could only take 3 items, this is what I would bring!
Every time I apply this Bobbi Brown foundation stick (I use the color porcelain) in front of a friend, they ask me, “Where did you get that?!?!”. So, you know it’s good. Basically, I use it as my concealer. I use it around my eyes, under my nose where it gets red, on top of a blemish and then I just rub it in. Sometimes I put powder on top and sometimes I don’t. All I know is, I can go from looking tired and dead to alive and fresh in 30 seconds.
So, I guess I like to apply everything with just my fingers. It takes the least amount of time and I don’t have to carry around a brush. This cream blush by Bobbi Brown in pale pink stays on and gives me a pop of color in 15 seconds. It has the same effect of pinching your cheeks, but the color stays. I have been known to do this entire make up routine while at a stop light.
Now, I realize not everyone likes a red lip, but this product is not about it’s color. It’s the application. It’s a large lip pencil that doesn’t get all goopy or get on your teeth. It can be worn alone or it can be added to a lip gloss for a little more color. I also have a natural color but I love the “dragon girl” color more. I’m just going to throw this out there- it may be the perfect red lip color.
