Let me think:
Mary Kay dual coverage powder foundation
MK Blonde brow liner
Velocity chill-it eye stick
and mascara--I have never found any particular brand that really outshines another, so not picky there.

I use MAC.
I like Shiseido's foundation better, but my sister gets a discount at MAC. But I still LOVE MAC.

The one thing I can't "live" without is Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick. (I use the Bronze coloration.) You can use it on your eyes and cheeks. It makes you glow! I have actually had people comment how radiant my skin was when wearing it! For the face I sweep the brush across all colors and for my eyes I use just one color. The colors aren't separated; they are all touching, which is different from anything I've used before.

And I love using this brush with the Shimmer Brick:

I"m a Merle Norman junkie lol...but for cleansers I like Arbonne. thier cleaners are faboo.

I like MAC but it is hard to find where i live so i just go for the MN. I love MN so much I would love to buy the local store. it is a stinky store but the one where I go (close to my moms house) is awesome and the one here so so much potential the lady who owns it just has run it in the ground it needs new blood but she wants to much for it so maybe she will come down in a year or two and i can get it then. lol

I couldn't live without Lancome. They are pricey but worth it! I love their foundation/powder combination called "Dual Finish" versatile powder makeup... it's a thicker powder, and it covers shine and blemishes while still letting my freckles (which I like!) show through


THey also have great free gifts, so I only go there when they are offering one!

If you are 30-something or older like me you go more for skin care than for makeup. I find the less makeup the better.

What I can't do without is Zia's Ultimate Exfoliant, Fresh Papaya Enzyme Peel and Even Smoother Alphahydroxy Papaya Accelerator. Used in that order and rinsed off after the prescribed time, it "eats" dead skin cells and makes your skin feel like a baby's butt. Then when you put on moisturizer or foundation it goes on like silk and any wrinkles or lines are de-emphasized.

I have "blond" skin tones and unless I am going to be out in the sun I don't wear foundation....just Lancome mascara, eyebrow powder and a little powder blush.

When I feel rich I'm going to try one of the microdermabrasion products you can get off the shelf now.

My must haves ...
1) Clinique Foam Cleanser (I used to use Active White but I can't find it anywhere so I have moved to their regular one)
2) Any type of curling mascara - they all work the same to me
3) Any type of eye lash curla
4) Clinique Fondation Stick
5) Clinique Loose Powder

I am not picky with eye shadows but I do love MAC eye shadows. I am very picky with lip sticks - I am allergic to MAC lipsticks and any scented lipsticks for that reason. I can only use lipsticks that don't smell like anything.

My Favourite Scents
1) Summer versions of Issey Miyake
2) Summer versions of Estee Lauder Pleasure
3) Davidoff Coolwater
4) Gucci Rush 2

I normally use Mary Kay products, but this Dual Finish from Lancôme is a lot better then the one Mary Kay has. Mary Kay also changed the foundation and I don't like the new one. I am now using Cashmere Perfect from L'Oréal.
For fragrance I use Paris from Yves St Laurent. A lot of people are asking me what I am wearing because it smells so good. I also like Shalimar from Gerlain.

I've been using Lancome since I was 16, and I'll be 40 this year...

Must haves:

Immanence (it's a lightly tinted moisturiser, much better than foundation-leaves the skin glowing, looking very refined and evenly toned).
Dual Finish Powder
Blush Subtil Sheer

I also like to dust on the Star Bronzer Magic Powder brush for a luminous glow.

I don't wear eye make-up unless I am performing (dance) or have a gala event.

I love Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, but its a bit heavy for summer. I like it because it has sunscreen in it and its one of the few that has a shade to match my skin, i am so pale!! I like NARS blush. So far, I haven't found any lipstick that I actually like, but I keep trying
