my "best of" for make up.


lip plumper by Fusion beauty. this one is fabulous. its expensive but worth it b/c it doesn't sting or have a weird after taste and it WORKS!

"Big, pouty lips of the genetically blessed (or not) have generated a demand for a plumper pucker. Thanks to LipFusion, achieving pout perfection—without a needle—is possible in three simple steps. Starting with the original clear formula, followed by a plumping pencil and colored gloss, a gorgeous, color-full pout can be yours for up to 48 hours."

eye shadow.. by POP beauty. I love this one for Blue eyes. really makes whatever color eyes you have really pop. :)
there are also different intensities. for night, afternoon, and morning events. they have sets for brown and green eyes too.

eye liner. the best eyeliner I have ever used. and least irritating to my eyes.
very easy to apply. can be soft or more dramatic.

L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Fortifier and Extender Mascara, Carbon Black
I like this mascara just as well as any of the really expensive kinds I have tried. BUT! you have to let the lash fortifier (white part) dry first! and then apply your mascara to reap the benefits. you can even do multiple coats of the fortifier if you let it dry before subsequent coats.
