My Daily Makeup


Let’s talk makeup! So I’m of the stick to the same brand forever and ever amen variety in the makeup department but I have switched things up a bit in the last year and I wanted to fill y’all in on it. This is the stuff I wear every single day…
Long-Wear Cream Shadow – Ballet Pink This is the most recent addition to my lineup and the color shown here doesn’t really portray it correctly but it’s the perfect base shade. I put this all over my lid all the way up to under my eyebrow. In the past I have had problems with cream eye shadows…I seem to have a sensitivity to whatever is in them and they make my eyes hate being alive. This doesn’t bother me in the least. AND the great thing about this is that it makes whatever you put on top of it a truer shade, it pops out more.
Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow – Heather Mauve I just love this color. It’s sort of a mashup of purple and grey and taupe with a touch of shimmer. And I am NOT a shimmer girl.
Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner – Black Ink I have been using this for years and I will never ever go back to a pencil, you can’t make me.
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage – SC2 My favorite concealer thus far. I use a fat concealer brush from Sephora to apply it.
Laura Mercier Oil Free Suprême Foundation – Blush Ivory I also use a brush to apply this Laura Mercier foundation. Once I started using a brush to apply foundation I don’t think I could go back to using a sponge or my fingers, I just think it goes on so much better with a brush.
Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush – Peach Satin This was me dipping my toe in the water with regards to cream blush. I didn’t want to commit to something expensive because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not. So I went cheap and hit the lotto. When I mentioned that I had started using this to Der she told me to trust her and use it with a regular brush even though its cream. So I had a leftover foundation brush from a set that I wasn’t using and went for it and she was SO right! Thank you Der!
Nars Semi Matte Lipstick – Pigalle This is also a fairly recent purchase. I’ve been using Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Brownie for a long long long time and it was getting low and just thought I might try something new. I LOVE this color.

What’s new with y’all? What have y’all recently found and loved?

Tipsy Favs: Lip Color

We’re baaaaaaack!  Today we would like to discuss daily go-to lip color.  What do you wear?  These are our MostDaysIWearThis shades

  1. Court: Revlon Matte Lipstick, Mauve It Over-I love the matte look, its goes with every.single.color combo I use with my makeup–even when I experimenting with bold eyes or natural looks.
  2. Der: Chanel Lip Glossimer, Giggle-I know I preach frugalista til the death of me on Tipsy and this definitely doesn’t fit the bill on that. BUT I purchased this lip gloss over 2 years ago and it’s still truckin and it’s still my favorite neutral for everyday wear.
  3. AK: Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Lip Color, Slopes-I’m a fan of matte finish lipstick.  I hoard lipstick, if I’m being honest.  This is my long running fav…I know the site says its a flushed red but to me it’s more like a toned down neutral-ish plum kind of color.  It’s really creamy and smooth going on and I just love the shade.
  4. Sarah: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer, Fig-I’m more of a chap stick wearer than a lip stick or gloss wearer because I don’t like the way it feels. The Burts Bees is perfect because it’s my favorite chap stick and just a hint of color so I don’t look washed out.
