Makeup Obsession, 6 Products to Love and Taking That Next Step

By  |  0 Comments

If you walked into my bathroom it would look like a small SE*H**A store (you know the store I’m talking about) exploded in there! I have a makeup obsession. Not just a little obsession…like a big, full-blown, maybe I need to join a support group obsession.


The containers where I store all of my makeup are not neatly organized as I find part of the fun is searching for that perfect shade of eyeshadow that I know is in there! One big container is for face and lips and the other is all things related to my eyes – that’s as organized as I can get. But, it works for me. And please know, I’m not writing this blog today to confess my obsession or my disorganization…I’m here to share some of my favorite products. Because guess what? Deep inside me is a budding little makeup artist…and I bet there’s one inside some of you, too. And if we all take a few moments to share some of our “favorite things” – perhaps, we can then take our makeup obsession to the next level – which might be with a career as a makeup artist.


Okay…so let’s get down to the nitty gritty. My favorite things right now!

Makeup Obsession, 6 Products to Love and Taking That Next Step

1. Too Faced Better Than S** Mascara.

Okay, the name may be a little risque, but um, I can’t say enough good things about this mascara! Now, I was turned on to this mascara when it showed up as a free sample in an order I placed from that above mentioned store – and I was instantly in love! Length, volume, and even a touch of curl! This mascara has it ALL! I love the intensity that this mascara brings!


2. Stila Stay All Day Foundation.

Oh, yeah! With 10 different shades, stila offers lots of choices! It evens out my skin tone and really minimizes my pores – which are two must-haves for me in a foundation. I also love the new pump applicator and can easily apply this foundation with my blending sponge for a flawless look.


3. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.

I’m a sucker for matte lipsticks. Love the way they look! L-O-V-E! And these liquid lipsticks by Kat Von D are amazing! They go on like a lip gloss (smooth and easy to apply) and dry to a gorgeous matte finish! With over 25 different shades, there’s a color for everyone!


4. Fresh Sugar Lip Polish.

If you are looking for a product to exfoliate and moisturize your lips – then look no further. This little gem is perfect on all accounts! As many of us are heading into fall/winter…I highly recommend adding this to your beauty bag!


5. Urban Decay Urban Spectrum Eyeshadow Palette.

Okay…I’m going to be really honest and tell you that I just checked the website of my favorite makeup store and I see that it is currently out of stock. (For those of us who love a certain makeup are there really three worse words to hear than “Out of Stock”?) But, I want you to check it out anyways – and let’s start a campaign to see if we can get it back! With 15 different shades it offers a fantastic choice of colors – allowing you to create a subtle daytime look or a dramatic evening look.


6. RCMA No Color Powder.

I learned about this little gem in a Trendimi webinar with Stefani Carol – who is an amazing makeup artist. (Be sure to look for any future webinars she has with Trendimi – you’ll love them!) This powder sets your foundation without giving you that “cakey” feel. It’s smooth and light and just fabulous!

Since moving abroad several years ago, she has worked as a freelance writer for various websites and publications where she has shared her thoughts on lots of subjects – some serious and some just plain fun! Additionally, she writes for her own personal enjoyment and spends lots of time blogging about her kids, her husband, her travels, and anything else that pops into her brain! (She dreams of the day when her kids will actually see the pleasure in writing! Someday!)

Living life abroad has given her plenty of opportunity to pursue her passions – makeup, party planning, interior design, cooking, fashion, fitness, and travel – and she loves to write about those things! Maybe it’s because she lives in a house full of boys, but she loves to indulge in “girly” things! She appreciates ideas that are easy to implement, but leave a lasting impression.

She loves the quote, “Retain your individuality, it’s what makes you beautiful,” (Raj Ram) and believes it applies to all of those wonderful passions she’s pursuing!
