I’ve alluded to it in the past, but I have quite an obsession with makeup and beauty products. I’ve been fascinated with it ever since I was young, when most of my time was spent with my head buried inside Seventeen magazine. I am a firm believer in wearing a little bit of makeup, especially with a pop of color. However, I’m sure there were many times my parents were embarrassed to be seen with me and that I looked like a clown.

I’m afraid to even show you my entire collection for fear of you never returning. Maybe sometime soon. Baby steps…

These are just a few of my favorites.

I love everything MAC. I mean… everything.  But these are my 3 favorite eye colors at the moment. That would be contrast, hepcat and talent pool. I remember a few girls making fun of me in high school for wearing purple eyeshadow. That wasn’t very nice.

This is the moisturizer I use everyday after washing my face. Love it – it is not greasy at all. I hate when things feel “heavy” on my face, so much so that I don’t even wear any kind of foundation.

Mascara would be my go-to beauty product – I usually don’t leave the house without it. Zoom lash is my current favorite – I’ve been using it for about 2.5 years. Which means they will probably discontinue it soon.

While we’re on the topic of mascara, here is another product I adore.

I absolutely love single false lashes. They look incredible when applied correctly. For the last 6 years, I’ve used 3-4 on the end of each lash, then build up the lashes on the inside with mascara. The only thing I don’t recommend is wearing these if you plan on swimming (duh), exercising or drinking so much that you don’t know who you are. That may have happened to me once… and some of you have even witnessed it.

I bring a new meaning to the word pale. And not in that creamy, peaches-and-cream skin kind of way. More like that really translucent, I-can-see-your-blood-vessels kind of way. This is the only bronzer that doesn’t turn me orange. I don’t use it everyday, so one compact lasts me about a year.

I have no idea if this really helps me, but it is nice and not greasy. It makes me feel better about the impending doom that will one day set itself upon my under eyes.

This skin regenerating serum makes your face feel like silk. Smooth as a baby’s bottom, I tell ya. And it lasts forever. It’s pricey, but a little bit goes a long way.

I really have nothing to say here except that I am obsessed with lip gloss.

Now tell me… what are your go-to beauty products? I’m always up for wasting money on as many products as I can trying new things
