I always get ready as if I'm doing a quick costume change for a show. In "9 to 5" this summer, we literally had about 45 seconds to change into an outfit before walking back onstage to sing and dance...actually, almost all of our changes were crazy, so I always look like a tornado getting ready in the morning.
Naked 3 Palette- Ummm, do you have this yet?? It's amazing!! My favorite is the second in from the left. I think it's called Lush, but I've used it so much that I've worn it off. I love that these all blend together really well!
2. Benefit Sugarbomb Blush- Yep, it's expensive, but it also lasts a very long time! This is such a pretty pink color that isn't too overpowering.
3. Almay Liquid Liner in Precise Black- Love. I can't leave the house without my cat-eye. It's definitely my trademark makeup look. I've tried expensive ones, and I keep going back to this!
4. Clarisonic Mia 2- Notice how I don't have foundation on this list? I thank my Clarisonic. The hubster bought this for me for Christmas last year, and I don't know how I lived without it! My skin broke out for awhile after starting, and then it was totally clear. I use it with the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. My skin is a combination. One day it is dry, the next oily. Now with this it's pretty smooth and not flaky at all. I love it!!
5. Cover Girl Bombshell Curvacious Mascara in Very Black- I've seen some of creepy reviews about this mascara (taking your eyelashes off, yikes!) but I've never had an issue with it. I only apply one coat, and it doesn't clump. It really does add length, and my only warning is to NEVER put on the #2 by itself. It will harden your lashes. I usually only put the #1 on and it's all I need.
What are your 5 essentials??
