Everyday Essentials Du Jour 2.17.11


I was rummaging through my bag yesterday and I realized there are certain products I use every day in the middle of the day to touch up with. I wanted to share some of my absolute must haves that I use all the time no matter what my makeup is for the day.

  • NARS Casino Bronzer
  • MAC 182 kabuki brush
  • Stila Smudgestick in Lionfish- long wearing bronze liner (I like the bronze because it is dramatic without being harsh during the day)
  • Prestige Skin loving minerals lip gloss in Soft peach - I LOVE THIS GLOSS! Total HG must have from the drugstore. Non sticky, cheap, nude, moisturizing, pigmented and smells like lemons!
  • MAC Lipgelee in Bubble Lounge- perfect sparkly pink to add some oomph. This was from the champale collection and I love it. I love light pinks and lip gelee's are totally not sticky which I love.
What do you find yourself using everyday?



  1. ooh i LOVEEE bronzy eyeliners, especially being can look so harsh in the daylight

    *too faced chocolate soleil bronzer (best matte bronzer IMO..made with cocoa powder and smells amazing...i won't lie, i've tasted it :)
    *lorac lipstick in babydoll (pinky nude)
    *dior amber diamond highlighter...major HG
    *urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in underground (pretty bronze)
    *big sexy hair powder play (sprinkle it on your hair and adds volume!)

  2. Is NARS Casino Matte? I need to get a Matte Bronzer once I have finished Project 10 Pan :) xo

  3. I've been eyeing nars casino bronzer for the longest,im tempted to try it out!

  4. That liner seems like it would be perfect, i am so curious now. My essentials are practicaly the same as yours, maybe a bit of concealer and lipstick instead of gloss!

  5. bobbi brown creamy concealer, nars casino bronzer, laura mericer pressed powder.

  6. I usually touch up with:
    -Dream Matte Powder from Maybelline
    -Whatever blush I'm wearing that day( my most worn blush is Deepthroat by Nars)
    -And whatever lipstick/gloss I'm wearing that day( my most worn lipstick is either Creme de Nude from Mac or YSL Rouge Velupte #1-pinky nude)
    -If I am wearing eyeliner in my waterline I always use Smolder eye kohl from Mac

  7. If I have my makeup done all nice when I go out, pretty much the only thing I bring is the lipstick I'm wearing, or sometimes just a random gloss to put over in case the lipstick wears off. lol I don't like to carry too much! :)

  8. I love bronze liners and that prestige gloss is amazing! I never really touch up my makeup during the day, but I always wear my jordana fabuliner for cat eyes, revlon age defying concealer or shiseido natural finish cream concealer (both look and wear the same), Revlon Cream blush in Rosy glow, maybelline color sensational lipstick in pink please (discontinued this year, dupe for MAC way to love) and I always bring a benefit creaseless cream if I have no time to do my makeup at home.

  9. NARS Casino bronzer.
    EOS Chapstick.
    COVERGIRL lipstain or Revlon's soft nude lipstick.
    MAC eyepencil in coffee.

  10. Diorskin Nude foundation
    Cargo 3 in 1 Mascara
    Chanel Espiegle blush
    And a bright lipstick of course!

  11. Diorshow mascara, MAC lovelorn lipstick, format blush

    *peace love & couture*
