My Makeup Must-haves

Hey sugarplums! I know you guys have this one product that you can not live without, we all do. I have a few that I love and cant complete my looks without.

The first is MAC's pigment powder in Lithe. It is the perfect color to highlight your brow bone and the inner corners of your eye. I use it on every eye look although sometimes I alternate my inner eye corners with Elf's Golden Bronzer which would be my second choice for a highlighting product. In both, a little goes a long way, especially the pigment. My favorite bronzer is Black Radiance's Golden Shimmer 3512. This bronzer blends in with my makeup perfectly and gives your skin a sun-kissed glow. Last but not least my favorite blush is Palladio Herbal Mosaic Powder. With this blush you can use a little for a natural low maintenance day look or use a little more for a dramatic night look. This product also blends well with either a liquid or power foundation. I have done makeup on different skin tones and these products have worked on all of them. The Black Radiance and Palladio I purchased from CVS, the Elf from Target and of course the pigment from MAC.

Day and Nite

Didn't feel like doing a whole face of one look so I did half a look for day and half for nite includes eye and lip wear. Sorry it's a little blurry I had to enlarge it so you could see more detail. Both eye colors from my Sedona Lace Matte Pallette, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 355, one side lipstick Rimmel Moisture Renew in Vintage Pink (light pink side), the other side Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in In Vogue.


For the past couple of months I have been having trouble with my nails splitting, chipping and breaking. A cosmetologist recently told me to try Nioxin. Nioxin is a food/dietary supplement that promotes healthy growth of hair, skin and nails according to the product description. Well I decided to try them, I purchased them from Ulta yesterday and starting taking them today. I bought the 30 day supply to see how it will work out I'll post again at the end of 30 days to let you guys know how it worked. Wish me luck!
