For starters let me just give you a brief description of my skin type. I have very dry and sensitive skin. I am lucky and don't experience many breakouts unless I am pregnant.. then things get kind of crazy.
Cleaning my Face:
To clean my face I usually use good old Johnston's baby soap. I know, that may seem kind of strange but I have tried lots of other products and it does the job and keeps my sensitive skin happy. I have recently been using Philosophy Face wash and absolutely love it. Especially on days where I wear heavy makeup it really keeps my face nice and clean. To remove my makeup I use baby oil. I know I just like baby products! It hydrates my skin while also effectively removing all ten pounds of my eye makeup. When I use a toner I usually stick with Sea Breeze and a cotton pad.
I have been using the same moisturizer for the past 3 years. It is ponds Dry Skin Cream with the blue cap. I have also converted my husband who uses it for his dry skin as well. Sometimes however this is not enough. I have been known to slather Aquaphore on my face before bed. Desperate times call for desperate measures folks. and as far as my lips go I love Burt's Bees the original chap stick, Babylips in the blue packaging, and Carmex.
Foundation and Powder:
eye shadow is my most favorite makeup product. I have collected quite a few and switch them up regularly. For a classic smokey eye or a "no makeup makeup day" I like the Naked Basics Pallet. It also has the best matte black color ever. But I am totally addicted to MAC eye shadows and here are my favorites: Espresso (brown), Soft Brown (self explanatory), Sign Sealed (Dark Purple), Fig1 (purple), Sketch (purple Brown), Red Brick (red), Shroom (highlight color), Embark (cool brown), Naked Lunch (pale pink tan). for eyeliner I like a good liquid black liner for the last 2 years I have used Prestige Cosmetics liquid liner found at Ulta. For mascara I like Cover Girls Lash Blast in Black water proof. I have sensitive eyes and they water a lot so waterproof mascara is a necessity.
I used MAC blunt to contour and I like lots of different blushes but my top three are Nars Orgasm, MAC Pinch o Peach, and MAC dollymix. To highlight I like MAC Soft and Gentle.
as far as actual lipsticks go I like MAC surprise surprise, My favorite color of all time is Cream Cup, its a perfect pink that goes with any look. Some other favorites are Lady Danger (fire engine red), Cream De Nude (nude), Speak Louder (hot pink) and Snob (cool tone purple pink).
My favorite Brushes for all things makeup are Sigma Brushes: that is what I use for everything!
