My Makeup Must Haves!

With Christmas and New Year's Eve coming up I thought I'd share some of my "must-haves," for getting all dolled up! These truly are my faves! 




1.) MAC custom eyeshadow pallete, perfect for smokey eyes! The custom color combo I picked, included Crystal Avalanche, Bronze, Espresso and Carbon! A sheer white for the base, a shimmery brown for the eyelid, a dark brown for the crease, and a matte black to finish the smokey eye look. 

2.) The MAC 239 shading brush. My favorite shadow brush, I use this for the browns and the blacks! 

3.) & 4.) Covergirl Lash Blast Length Mascara in, "Very Black" and Maybelline Colossal Volume in, "Classic Black." I have tried a LOT of mascaras, from inexpensive, to the high end department stores and these TWO drug store mascaras are my absolute faves! I have to use them together though! I like #3 because it has a very fine, plastic brush. I'm able to really get in there with this one and make sure all of my lashes get covered. Then I go in with the big, thick bristle brush for massive coverage and volume! 


5.) Arbonne Makeup Primer- Love this stuff! This is the first step to applying my makeup! It goes on so well, it's so smooth and refreshing! The fact that it makes my makeup last an entire day is why I can't live without it! (if you need this, let me know, my sister in law is the best Arbonne consultant!)
6.) MAC Foundation Brush- I rarely wear foundation(only on special occasions), but when I do I turn to this brush. It's so important to use a brush when applying makeup, and this is the best I've found! 
7.) Sephora Bronzer Brush- This brush might be my BFF, a long with the bronzer that I use with it. Go get one.
8.) Sephora Bronzer in, "Aruba."



9.) Sephora Eyebrow Brush- Eyebrows are more important than most people make them out to be. I love this little brush for manicuring my brows. It also folds in for easy travel!





10.) Nars Blush in, "Taos"
11.) MAC blush in, "Gentle"
I like to use both of these. I apply Taos first and contour with Gentle!





These four are just little extras that I always keep handy and are definitely must-haves! 

12.) Big Sexy Hair Powder Play- this is your hair teasing copilot! 
13.) Lorac TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer- Ok, I used to be so guilty of tanning, but in the past few years I have given up tanning. That's where my good friend TANtalizer comes into play! I put this all over and become a bronzed beauty again! Safety first!
14.) Essie's "Cocktail Bling," is beautimous! It's my go-to color. It goes with everything!  
15.) Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume- I will probably never wear another perfume again! I just adore this scent. I get so many compliments when I wear my Lady Million. Kory loves it so I know it's a keeper! This is a GREAT gift idea for any occasion. 

Go get your must haves and get all dolled up this New Year's Eve!
