The Very Best: Make Up

In the spirit of summer, the season of colorful make up and tan, it might be the time to acknowledge a fashion blog can not only be about the clothes. Unless you're someone like the Stylish Wanderer, taking pictures with your face off, it's usually there, a part of your "presentation".

SO... I've decided to indulge in an 'all times favorites" make up post. Not that I'm a pro, but after working for almost two years as a beauty editor, I was able to go through a wide range of products and pick my ultimate favorites. I'm a fan of the natural look, and love bright lips and nails. These are the things that keep my face up.

1. M.A.C golden Lustre drops - the ultimate eye shadow, highlighter, you name it! Plus, this tiny bottle lasts  for years.

2. M.A.C lipstick in Show Orchid and Utterly Delicious (4) - orange and fuchsia are my favorites.

3. La Mer concealer - I have dark circles since I was a little girl, and coverage doesn't get any better then this. Again - a little package will last a lifetime. 

5. Givenchy Le Prismissime 9 Colorsbox - happy neons, blues and neutrals - when I want a colorful eye (usually after reading too many magazines), I go for this compact pallet, which comes with three kinds of

6. O.P.I nail polishes in Roll in the Hague and Tickle Me Fancy - the first, a happy orangy-red. The second,  a delicate pink with a hint of purple. Muted toes and screaming nails in the rule I live by.

7. Lancome Hypnose Star mascara - I've been a Lancome fan since my mom first introduced me to it, and used their mascaras for ever. The Star is a true bliss - curling, for real, and rich without clogging.

8. Givenchy PhotoPerfexion Light Fluid foundation -I might actually use make up once a month (for a very, very very special occasion), and this one lives up to its fancy name. The sheerest of sheer, and highly moisturizing.

With that, I'm concluding my list. Expect more cosmetic goodness to come, and share your favorites in the comments.
