Painted Faces – My daily beauty arsenal

Like most “girly girls”, I love to play with make-up!  I’ll try anything once, however, when it comes to day to day “face painting” I tend to stick to a few tried and true products.  Below are my favorite products that I use every day when getting ready for work.  What are your favorite go-to products?


I love Clinique’s oil-free Stay Matte foundation.  It is light but still covers any skin discoloration or imperfections.


Nars Pressed Powder is super silky.  I use it over my foundations on days I need extra coverage and just alone on a clean face when I don’t need a lot of coverage.

To line my eyes, I use Loreal’s Telescopic Liquid eyeliner in “Carbon Black.”  It has taken me a while to master the technique of using a liquid eyeliner to line your eyes without lining your entire face, however, now that I have it down it is easier, quicker and stays longer than a pencil eyeliner.


For my eyebrows I use TIGI cosmetics Brow defining pencil in “Blonde”.  It has a brush on one end and the pencil on the other.  Simple and not too overpowering of a color.


My favorite blush is TIGI’s Glow Blush in “Lovely”.  It is has a little pink coloring but not too much.


The eye shadow I use is TIGI’s High Density eyeshadow palette.  I use the cream color as a base and the brown and bronze for my daily wear.  But look at all the other fun colors it comes with to play with!


My FAVORITE mascara is Loreal’s Voluminous mascara w/ the curved brush, in “Black Noir.”  I SWEAR by this stuff.  If you haven’t tried it, just try it ONE time.  I have yet to find anything I like better.  It adds so much thickness and length to lashes.  I have a tube of this stuff in my car, my desk, my purse AND my gym bag.  Love it.


I use these NYX jumbo eye pencils in the corners of my eyes.  I have it in the color “Milk” and “Pure Gold” and use them to add a little shine in the corners of my eyes!  They are only $4.50!  Total Steal!


On my lips for day-to-day wear, I don’t want something too over-the-top so I use Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Pink Punch.  It adds just a tiny bit of color and moisturizes my lips.


And my FINAL and FAVORITE touch in the mornings is a small spray of this yummy scent.  Aquolina’s “Pink Sugar”.  It smells like cotton candy and vanilla icing to me.  So So So yummy!

Ok beauties!  Do share!  What is your “CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT” daily product!

  1. I love the L’oreal mascaras. My favourite has to be the ‘So Couture’ one. I makes my lashes so long and fluttery. I also love mac mineralisze foundation but as its quite expensive I can’t always afford it 😦
