My Must Haves. Volume Two.

It's been a crazy week! I've been all over middle and west Tennessee, and to top it all off... My best friend since childhood just had her baby this morning!!! Welcome to the world Berkley Kate! :)
I thought I would share my other "must haves" with you guys. Thanks for all the comments and recommendations for other products I should try out. If you should know something, I am a bit obsessed with trying new products, so it's likely I will try them all! ha  Here are my other picks...

Bare Minerals makeup. As I said before, my skin is so sensitive.
This makeup is my saving grace! It gives good coverage and an amazing glow!
I use all 3 products: the makeup, bronzer, and mineral veil.

All time fave mascara = MAC Zoom Lash in Black.
And it's only about $14!

Runner up mascara.
It's a little pricey, but it works great on my lashes!
(Tip: MAC is supposed to have one that rivals this, as of last month!)

For blush/bronzer I also use MAC blush in Raizin.
It's more like a bronzer, but I love the color it gives.

Bobbi Brown's shimmer bricks are my #1 pick for getting that GLOW!
I have a couple of them: bronze and the original one.

MAC eye shadow in "All that Glitters"
I use this everyday and get tons of compliments on it!
I wear with a strong black eye liner (below), and it's the perfect nude eye!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in "Zero."
Best consistency in an eye liner I've ever found!
It goes on VERY black, which I love.

Best nude lip: YSL lipstick in No. 26 paired with...

YSL gloss in #3 (Pure Coral)

And my newest obsession: Cle de Peau concealer.
My new fave under eye concealer! It stays put and does not crease!

Great value & great colors!
My two must haves are "Cherry Twist" and "Berry Burst."

I use this product every time I fly...which is a lot :)
I love it!

I would love to know the products you all use and can't live without! xx


  1. Great post. I love Raizin Blush. HAve you tried Youngblood Minerals? They have good stuff too. A little expensive though. I love their lunar dust. Reminds me of MAC's iridescent loose powder

    Having a youngblood giveaway feel free to enter!

  2. I have sworn by MAC Zoom lash for years, but I recently switched to Macs new OpuLash that came out last month that rivals the Dior. I started noticing the Zoom lash running a little bit in the summer, so decided to try something new. It is great, but nothing can match the length you get with zoom lash!

  3. Love bareminerals too and cannot live without diorshow blackout!! I have curly hair to and cannot wait to try your products from volume 1!

  4. I love a lot of these! DiorShow is great :)

  5. I love DiorShow!! And, I got the Bare Minerals eye kit a few months ago and loveee the bronzer and mineral veil! My skin is very sensitive too and I can use this with no problems :)

  6. Definitely want to try that concealer--thanks for the tip!

  7. I love Bare Minerals too! I cannot live without my Shu Eumura eyelash curler and Tarte Cheek stain.


  8. I definitely agree with what Valerie said about the Shu Eumura eyelash curler. A must have!

    I also use bareMinerals and the Illuminating Mineral Veil is my favorite! It has little shimmers in it!

    I used to use the Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks but have switched to Physicians Formula shimmer stripes in healthy glow! It's super cheap and looks great. I use it for blush... might be a little pink for your taste, but there are other colors, as well :)

    Great products, girl! XO


  9. Diorshow mascara is the WAY TO GO. I interned at Dior Cosmetics and fell positively in love with the Diorshow Unlimited mascara -- it's amazing!

  10. Mineral make-up is the best! I just started using a loose powder (Neutrogena) and I am loving it!! Great picks.


  11. Absolutely love Bare Minerals makeup and that's so exciting about your friend! :)


  12. Nice picks esp on the mascara cant live without it.

  13. loove the ysl gloss!! coral is such an amazing color for the summer!! I'm all about the MAC skinfinish for this summer from the mineralize collection! It goes on super light and gives a perfect complexion! love it!!

  14. I've been craving that YSL lip color for so long. Amazing must haves! I was always wondering if the whole mineral foundation was a sham or not--but I guess not! I really want to try it!

  15. I also use Bare Minerals for foundation! I haven't tried the bronzer yet though. I'm really pale--I use the fairest foundation they have!-- would a bronzer work for me?
