Five Beauty Musts (at least for me)

New idea - five things every Thursday. We'll see how creative I get, but for today, I'm starting small - my top five beauty must-haves.

Okay, so maybe this is an obvious choice, being that everyone I know uses Bare Minerals these days, but I can't ignore their wonderful foundation. I was introduced to it about four years ago, and I haven't looked back. It works like a charm, and I really don't feel like I'm wearing makeup.

This summer, my sister and I both got hooked on this eyeliner from Ulta. We both like the dark brown shade, but I'm anxious to add a few more shades to my collection. I promise, you will not see a line on your top lid, which is such an unsightly problem, if you ask me.

One of the items I spent my Christmas Ulta gift card on was Ooh La La Lift from Benefit. I've been using it for three weeks, and I'm sure it'll become a permanent fixture in my makeup bag.

I got Gucci Flora for Christmas, and I love it. It's the perfect smell for me. It just fits.

I think I've mentioned before that I use Philosophy's Purity Made Simple facial cleanser. Well, fine if I did; I just love it that much. It has a subtle lemony sent and always leaves my face feeling super clean. I love everything from Philosophy, especially their shower gels, and their perfume Amazing Grace is my summer scent.

Totally with you on the Bare Minerals. I have seriously traumatized skin, and their make-up seems to cover everything (as well as can be expected) and not to cause any more trauma: definitely a win-win.

Ooooh, thanks for this post! I just LOVE posts like this. I'm always looking for good suggestions(esp. cosmetics since I have such sensitive skin).

Good stuff, eb!

Bought some Bare it so far, BUT my skin is oily and it seems to get oiler quicker. Any suggestions..other than powder? I didn't think to ask the ladies at Ulta.
