5 Beauty Essentials

I don't know about you guys...but I don't particularly like getting up in the morning and primping and prepping for work. It's not that I don't want to look good, but my ridiculous hair unfortunately takes up most of my time!

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.

I have a lot too much makeup, but if someone told me I could only have five beauty items it would be these:
1. 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??

  2. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only who dreads primping in the morning. My hair takes forever to finish and by the time I'm finished drying and straightening I'm sweating my butt off and need another shower. I just read some make-up reviews that were promoting the use of a primer. I've purchased one and have been using it this week. I love it. I do wear foundation during the school year and the primer really smoothed it out and helps it stay on even in my hot classroom.
