Five on Friday - My Everyday Makeup Must-Haves

A fashion-ish post yesterday, and now makeup?? I must be on some kind of roll!


Anywho, I don't wear a lot of makeup, so I don't have a ton. But the products I do have, I totally swear by!! So I thought I'd share those with you! :)

First I should tell you that I don't usually wear any kind foundation, so you won't find anything like that listed here. At most, I put on a base powder, but that's it! 

NUMBER ONE - Stila Prime Pot
This is an awesome primer. It's waterproof, so it does an extra good job at preventing eyeshadow creases. I also use it as concealer sometimes. ;-)

It's true that this palette is a tad bit expensive but let me tell you, it's worth EVERY penny. I don't get real risky with my eye makeup, I much prefer the neutral colors so this is the only eyeshadow I use, ever. I also use the black color on the end for my shadow liner (as opposed to using a pencil). If you don't have it, GO GET IT NOW.

I. Love. This. Mascara. Did I stress that enough with the incessant period. between. each. word? lol. Sorry that's annoying. But for real, this stuff is awesome. I have tried SO many mascaras, but I keep coming back to this. And it's really inexpensive, so, SCORE!

I was introduced to this blush from a friend while attending a makeup party. Yes, a makeup party. Every girls dream, right? It was awesome. Okay but back to the blush, I have it in #20 - Peach Satin. It's a super creamy powder blush that you can apply with the swipe of your fingers. I am pretty modest with this, so it goes a long way! I won't run out offor a longggg time!! I highly recommend it!

NUMBER FIVE - EOS Lip Balm
I just randomly picked this up while I was in the checkout line at Walmart. I don't use lipstick or lipgloss, but I'm always looking for a new lip balm, and this was impressive! I originally bought it in Summer Fruit, and I loved it so much, I now also have it in Sweet Mint and Strawberry Sorbet. lol. It's delightful.
So there you have it!! My Top 5 favorite every day makeup items!! What are your favorites??

I want that naked two palette so bad! I just can't bring myself to spend $50 on makeup anymore - before J, I was the Sephora queen! I still wear make up everyday but I'm just a little more conservative on how much I spend =(

I am in need of a new mascara - totally trying this out! And I've heard great things about the EOS lip balm... have to make that happen too!

Happy Friday, girl.... so glad you linked up! :)

I did the exact thing with the EOS lip balm, Walmart check out lines get me every time! :) Love that stuff!

I have been eyeing the naked 2 palette! Lucky for me, an Ulta just opened up nearby- so maybe I'll save my pennies and splurge! :)

I've heard so many great things about Stila Prime. I'll buy one from sephora just to check it out.

Thank you Mandy!

I don't wear much make up ever. As long as I have mascara i'm usually ok :) BUT i grew up with a family of Mary Kay users so all of my stuff is from there, EXCEPT I do have Bare Minerals base kit and i love it. I've had it forever and it covers just enough to make me feel like I did something special with out being heavy!

So funny, I have the exact same three favors of eos bought in that order! Love them! And I also originally picked it up at Walmart. Ha!

Gretchen said...

I've got to try that blush - I need something new! And the eye shadows are totally up my alley. Gotta save for that now!

Lauren Davison said...

is it sad that I can't look at EOS lip gloss without thinking of the Miley Cyrus "we cant stop" video now? which I guess was their intention!

I've never heard of EOS before, but thanks to you and all your commenters I'm totally going to try it out next time I'm at the store.

Fran said...

Oooh I love that Naked Palette, I've been eyeing it for a while but I've been holding back due to the price haha

Bump2Buff said...

everyone keeps talking about the Naked 2 eyeshadow & EOS lip balm...must get these & see what the fuss is all about ;)

From Casinos To Castles said...

Ohh I really want to try the Naked Palette and the EOS lip balm, but sadly I don't know if I can find it in Germany. But I'm going to look! :-)

Amber said...

Such a pretty girl!!!!

I love my naked palette, maybelline mascara and EOS :)

Julie S. said...

I have wanted the naked palatte for EVER!!!!

Kasey Lynne said...

I'm definitely adding that Stila primer to my Sephora wish list. I've tried so many different primers, and my eyeshadow almost always creases. I hate it.

I'll also have to try that mascara out. My tried and true is LOreal's False Fiber Lashes, but I'm always looking for a new one to try!

I am not very adventurous with my eye shadow either, I keep it very neutral. That Urban Decay shadow seems to be a favorite for many...maybe I should break down and get it. I use Maybelline mascara but not that one, I will give it a try on my next purchase.
