#blogeverydayinFEB: Day 6

Day #6: Make-up Must Haves

I'm not huge on makeup..and by that I mean I rarely wear it.  If I put on any makeup on a school's just mascara.  Nail polish and chapstick, on the other hand?  That's more my type of beauty product!
beauty faves

Favorite Nail polish:
Essie Bikini So Teeny.  
It's the perfect opaque light blue.  Perfect for spring and summer...and I've been known to wear it in the winter, too (like right now...)

Favorite Foundation:
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation.
I have trouble finding a foundation that matches my skin because I'm fairly pale, but I don't want my foundation to wash me out even more.  My friend Abby has the foundation, and I tested it and it turned out her shade was basically perfect for me!  I couldn't have scurried off to the drugstore any faster!  Plus, it's affordable on my college budget.

Favorite Mascara:
Benefit "They're Real!"
So this, on the other hand, is not friendly on my college budget.  I'm still using a deluxe sample that I received from Sephora, but I may have to splurge on this once that sample is complete.  It both lengthens and volumizes my lashes..and since mascara is often the only makeup I wear, it really makes my eyes pop!

Favorite Eye Shadow Palette:
Too Faced Natural Eye.
As I said, I don't often wear makeup.  But if I am going out or getting dressed up, I do put on a bit of eye shadow.  This palette is perfect because it has both light neutral shades, but it also includes darker shades to create a smoky eye.  The palette also comes with  cards to demonstrate how to create specific looks, which is a great help to me because I'm not so great with makeup application!

Favorite Lip Product (for the moment, atleast):
Nivea Lip Butter (Vanilla & Macadamia).
The winter months are harsh on my skin..especially my lips!  My dorm room has a really dry heating system, so my lips have been cracking like crazy!  This lip butter has completely solved that problem.  It's really thick, so I don't wear it during the day.  But I apply it at night while I'm doing homework or before I go to bed, and it keeps the cracking to a minimum.  During the day, I use Nivea Kiss of Moisture lip balm!

What are your favorite beauty products?


  1. I'm very fair and I suggest Chanel or Bobbi Brown for good shades that won't wash you out. Granted they are pretty expensive, but they do last a good 6 months and longer if you don't wear make-up frequently!

  2. Essie is by far my favorite nail polish! I'm not much of a make up wearer so I like your list a lot.

  3. I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check out my blog for more details


  4. I've had my eye on that Too Faced palette! Hopefully when I have a consistent job I can grab it!
