A nice tinted moisturizer, By Terry Baume de Rose, and tools to fill in my brows (ABH).  The rest is a lot of fun to play with, but I do not need it.

Mine are mostly skincare based 

  • Coconut oil: for hair and skin during the winter 
  • Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil: it gets everything off (even MUFE Aqua Black) and doesn't leave my face feeling oily or tight. 
  • Bobbi Brown Corrector: can erase any discolouration my face can come up with
  • Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil
  • Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream
  • Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
  • Ole Henriksen Power Peel
  • Nars Ita brush: it might just be magic
  • Cover Girl Clump Crusher mascara: I use it alone for every day or as a "primer" for more dramatic nighttime  mascara

The Mega Naked sounds so cool!


Was it very hard??

Re: What are your beauty must haves?

image.jpgIt wasn't hard at all! I didn't really have any majorly broken shadows except the black in Naked 2 and I pressed that right back.. I made a palette out of magnetic paper and an old DVD case. I did need to use heat to the packaging for the Basics, Naked 2 and Naked 3. After I got the packages apart, I heated the back of the pans and pushed an awl through the back. If I needed to use too much pressure, it went back on the heat. the pans popped out and I cleaned off the glue with Goo Gone ( really carefully, so I didn't get any in the shadow) and followed up with alcohol, wrote on the back, and stuck them in!  Here it is with some colors from the Ammo Palette, but I had to take them out as the case wouldn't close securely.

I am obsessed with Ole Henriksen's Sheer Transformation and Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Mask, These are both newer purchases and can't believe I went this long without having them. Anyways besides that, I must have a good hydrating eye cream, a nude lipstick like Too Faced Naked Dolly, Guerlain's Maxi Lash, Bite Agave Mask and Cherry Scrub, and Murad's Active Radiance Serum. 

Re: What are your beauty must haves?

Like many others here, I'm sure, my list would be so long!  But I'll post a shorthand version then go around giving hearts to all your lovely posts.  Here are some of my most beloved HG products: 

  • Bobbi Brown foundation stick in Porcelain/undereye stick in Alabaster.  I've been using these for years and years as my purse touch-up go-to's.  The reformulation thankfully didn't alter them too much for me.  
  • Bobbi Brown Petal lip gloss.  Another devoted loyalty product for me.  This was my very first high-end lip gloss (purchased alongside Rose Sugar, which I loved more at age 13 but now at age 24 prefer Petal) and it's still a beautiful, classic pinky coral that complements everything.  
  • NARS powder blush in Deep Throat (for "no makeup" coral flushing), Mata Hari (so buildable from perfectly pretty to absolutely sultry), and BLKR (the perfect rosebud for so many skin tones).  The Matte Multiple in Siam has a special place in both my purse and stage makeup kit because it is so powerful and long-lasting!  
  • Kat Von D and Dermablend for stage and photoshoot makeup.  Guerlain Lingerie De Peau for subtle everyday foundation. 
  • tonymoly Crystal Blusher in Milky Violet.  Absolutely my favorite lilac blush in my entire collection.  Cools anything down and makes a great touch-up dupe for Besame's gorgeous Violet Finishing Powder. 
  • Staple Eye Palettes: Electric (UD), Sugarpill Heart Breaker and Burning Heart, NARSissist (despite the negative reviews, I LOVE it.  My favorite neutral palette.  Beats out all the Nakeds for daily use for me), BH Galaxy Chic, Smoked (UD), Foreshadow (UD), and Lorac Pro.  My favorite for stage makeup and especially editorial looks is definitely the MUFE Flash Palette!
  • Tom Ford's Black Orchid, Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and White, Malin+Goetz Dark Rum for fragrances.  
  • Urban Decay Brow Box
  • NYX Milk, of course

Forgot to mention OCC Lip Tar and my oils (especially Castor and Tea Tree for my face and Coconut for my hair).  Alterna's Anti-Aging Blonde line is perfect for protecting my color.
