Sneak a peek in my makeup bag

I remember when I first started wearing makeup. I was so nervous to ask my mom if I was allowed. She decided that if I was going to wear makeup I'd better do it right. I went and had a makeover and have been gently experimenting ever since. I look forward to Makeup Mondays with Keiko Lynn because she is a genius. Maybe one day I could have that kind of skill.

These are the products that I use on a semi-regular basis, when I have slightly more energy in the morning to decide between products. And when I don't, I just throw on the bare basics.
makeup

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer  - if nothing else I always put this on, or else my face feels too tight for my head
Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Primer Skin - it makes my face so smoothy smooth!
Benefit Erase Paste Concealer - for my dark circles and undereye luggage
Benefit Some Kind of Gorgeous - I don't use this very much because I've never really felt comfortable with foundation. This is nice through because you just brush on a small amount
Benefit You're Bluffing - for redness and spots
CoverGirl LiquilineBlast Eyeliner Pencil  - I like this eyeliner because it's very smooth and easy to put on
Revlon® Colorstay™ Liquid Liner - I like to wingout my eyes for dramatic effect
Benefit 'Moon Beam' Liquid Highlighter - for the perfect sheen on my cheeks and brow bone

Benefit Posietint - pinkish cheek colour. Looks like nail polish so is fairly terrifying at first!


Benefit Benetint - reddish cheek and lip colour Benefit Cosmetics Miss Popularity - highlighter for my peepers
Benefit Hollywood Glo - I saw a picture of Mandy Moore once and her skin was just beautiful. Glowing and dewy. I've been searching for a product ever since. This is the closest I've found and it's been discontinued!!!
Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain - I'm paranoid that I will have lipstick on my teeth. Lipstain is the solution!



Obviously, I'm a big fan of Benefit Cosmetics. I'm not even sure if it's the products themselves or their fun packaging... Either way, if I feel better I look better!

Oh and also before I appear too high-maintenance my travelling makeup bag is a Ziploc...

We swear by the Aveeno face moisturizer! That is the best stuff for dry skin :)

I just did a quick search on Benefit Hollywood Glo... has it been discontinued? Because I totally WANT to try it! It sounds amazing.
