Der Daily Beauty Staples

I don’t always wear the same make-up every day, like a lot of my Tipsy girls do, but I can tell you that I have noticed that when I am in a hurry… I reach for my tried and true staples. Here they are.. the best of the best from a drug store make-upaholic.

  1. Maybelline, Expert Wear Blush in Apricot Flush- the perfect pinched my cheeks flush I need to keep from looking like a zombie and it seems to stay on all day.
  2. Covergirl, Lash Exact Mascara in Black- This is my daily mascara. It’s so clean and doesn’t flake or clump at all.
  3. Maybelline, Superstay Silky Foundation – I saw this foundation used on Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style ( um, sad about that cancellation BTW) and so I had to try it out.  It’s awesome! Stays on all day and is light as a feather.
  4. Maybelline, Experwear Single Eyeshadow in Creme De Cocoa- Neutral and slightly shimmery and easy to wear or blend with other colors.
  5. Covergirl, Outlast Smoothwear Eyeliner in Espresso- goes on so smooth and stays on like no other.
  6. Hardcandy, Honeymoon Peach Blush– I pop one sweep of this over my cheekbones, on top of my regular blush.  This is a recent find and I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

I’m Chapped and I Ain’t Happy

It’s wintery here in Texas.  My lips are dry and peely and just plain sick. I need some assistance in the form of a chapstick, but not your average chapstick. I want something cute and glossy and maybe with a little bit o’ color, people. Is that too much to ask? No. It is not.


1. Nivea, A Kiss of Shine Natural Gloss– Glossy and smooth with extra moisture. It’s workin wonders on me.

2. Softlips, Pure Pomegrante– This stuff is amazing. Soft doesn’t begin to describe your lippers with this stuff on them. Any scent shall do, I just like pomegrante anything.

3. Chapstick, True Shimmer Botanical Berry– The tried and true chapped lip brand plus shimmer, yes please!

4. Eos, Lips Balm Sphere in Summer Fruit – Tasty smell and moisturing, just what I like. AND look how cute the packaging is… I’m a sucker for packaging.

5. Burt’s Bees, Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb– Just enough color and oh, the moisture. Thirst quencher for thy lips.

6. Covergirl, Lipslick in Daring–  Ok, so this really isn’t a “chapstick” but it is a)moisturizing and b) the most divine color ever.. like you just ate a popsicle when you were a kid.
