Make Up and other Stuff

Those of you know know me are aware that I'm beauty product obsessed.  I try, buy, and research LOTS of stuff.  I especially love makeup.  I thought I'd share a few of my "must have" beauty items for the "struggling to stay cool" mommy. 
  • A good concealer is a must.  I love this one because it's easy to use and easy on the lines. Clinique's Line Smoothing Concealer
Line Smoothing Concealer
  • MAC Skinfinish Mineralize pressed powder.  LOVE this.  It's natural looking, but does something magical to the face.

  • Benefit "Dallas" bronzer  This is great as a bronzer or good to slap on as a blush when you're running late.  I like it because it's not shimmery.

  • Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara, for when I'm feeling a little flirty, or just can't find time to put anything else on my eyes ;)

  • Urban Decay 24/7 eye and lip pencils These pencils are soft and the eye pencils stay on forever.  The fat eye liners are a great substitute for shadow.

  • Moroccan Oil smells delightful and smooths flyaways, while adding shine.  Gives you beachy hair.

  • My Secret Hair Enhancer is for when I need to have my hair colored, but haven't done it yet.  Spray it on and you can go at least an extra two weeks!


  1. Ohhh fun! I love new make-up ideas (and I could use some). Do you get all these at Sephora?

  2. Yes, except for the MAC and the hair stuff, which you can get at
