Everyday Staples

Everyday Staples


It is really nice to have products you always know you can count on. If you are on vacation and forget your make-up, you don't have to worry whatever replacement products you buy aren't going to work. These are a few of my staples that won't break the bank either. 

1. Maybelline Eye Studio Eyeliner- This gel pot eyeliner will last even the sweatiest dancefloors and I've even had it last a few hours in a steam-filled hot tub. I've always been a fan of a black eyeliner, even for blonde and red-heads. This is a great drugstore eyeliner buy.

2. Neutral Nail Polish- At the same time, neutral nail polish can look refined, yet stylish and trendy. My absolute favorite neutral "greige" is Essie's Chinchilly.

3. Smith's Rosebud Lip Balm- This wonderful balm cures dry, chapped lips with only one application. *Tip* Just don't leave it in your hot car like I did. I opened it up and the melted balm dripped all over my nice car upholstery. Not fun to clean.

4. Wet n' Wild Blush- So, I used to be a Wet n' Wild hater. I thought that anything so cheap could not be worth it. But, I was very wrong. For the last few months I've been using this great powder blush. It isn't an ultra long-lasting formula but it lasts just as long as any other powder brand.  

5. Neutral Eyeshadow- One must have staple, in anyone's make-up bag is the brown palette. No matter what brand, whether it be Dior or Rimmel, it is a must-have. These colors can provide a nice neutral base for a dramatic lip or liquid liner cat-eye, or it can be used for a more professional setting, like a job interview. 

6. Black Mascara- Like I said about eyeliner, I don't believe anyone should use anything but black mascara, no matter how pale your skin or hair. The blackest of lashes will always look longer, thicker and fuller. I love CoverGirl's Lash Blast. Soon, I'll post some before and afters of my own eyelashes.
