My (current) favorite beauty products. . .

Beth from The Stories from A to Z is having a get your face on party!

You know how I love cosmetics, so I wanted to play, too. : )

Unfortunately, or maybe it's fortunate for YOU, my camera is out of commission.
Yes, THAT camera!  So, no current pics of me.

We are having some autofocus issues. : (

(Is it weird, that I actually miss it?)

Sooo, I am just gonna show y'all my fave beauty products, instead.

This is what I wash my face with, it's a Clarisonic and seriously, it ROCKS!

It has made the biggest difference in my skin.

It's a little bit spendy but definitely, worth it!

After I wash my face, I use philosophy's Hope in a tube for under my eyes. 

I'm starting to get lines under there and this really seems to help.

I'll be the first to admit, that I don't moisturize like I should, but I do have some of this and use it when my skin is really dry. 

I am trying to be better about moisturizing every day, though!

As far as makeup goes, I've been a Bare Escentual girl for years.

Love the stuff!

I use a kit similar to this.  


I'm really fair, so I have to use the fair foundation.

Then, I take just a bit of warmth and highlight my face with it.

 I also use their glee and put a little of it, on the apples on my cheeks. 

It gives me just enough color and I think it looks pretty natural. At least I hope so! ; )

Since, I have dark circles under my eyes, I feel like I need a little more coverage under there.  So, I use this. 

It seems to do the trick!

Finally, I finish all that off with the Bare Escentuals mineral veil.

Then onto my eyes, I never wear eyeshadow, I love it on other people but not on me.

So, I all I use is mascara and my favorite mascara is Lash Injection by Too Faced.

It doesn't smudge and it's waterproof. Love that!

Plus, it makes my lashes super long and full!

I used to use the BE lip stuff but I was at Ulta one day and tried their lip liner because they had it on sale and I really liked it!
So, I use it now.

I use several of their different colors.

Lastly, I am a gloss girl.

I prefer it to lipstick, anyday.

My current fave is the C. O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip tint at Bath and Body Works.

It has a bit of a tingle to it and it's not sticky at all.

If you haven't tried this, I totally recommend it!

and this is typically, what the final result looks like.

This is an old picture but you get the idea! : )

Ok, now I'm off to see what you use!

I've considered getting one of those Clarisonic brushes. You really like it, huh?

I also use that CO Bigelow lip gloss - I have several different colors.

I've never heard of a Clarisonic. And I've always been intimidated by the mineral make-up. I've thought about trying new things, but I never know what to choose when it comes to picking the right foundation color.
