Show Us Your Life - Show us your Favorite Beauty Products

Today is all about beauty products.  What are your favorites? 

First of all - I have this friend Elizabeth who is just beautiful (inside and out) and she is not a make-up artist but she always has the BEST makeup so several of my friends have asked her for lessons.  One day recently Laurie and I went over to watch her put on her make-up.  She uses almost all make-up from Wal-Mart and I told her very VERY soon I want to film a video of her and we will post it on the blog. I think y'all will love it. 

I hate giving any advice because I have none to give on this subject.  I use absolutley no skincare products (which I know at my age I should but I just never have).  

I have always just used drugstore make-up but last year I was down on my looks and feeling frumpy and decided to take the plunge with some better makeup.  Angie Smith tweeted about how much she loved the Naked Palette by Urban Decay and she sold me on it.  Especially when I realized there are you tube videos out there that detail how to wear your eye makeup with this palette. It changed my life. Seriously - it LITERALLY opened my eyes. :-)

And then I got so nuts over the naked palette (which is a lot of money for eye shadow but I have been using it for like 8 months and I use almost every color and they barely look like they have been touched.  So I count it as an investment that will last a while) that I tried out a lot more Urban Decay products. 

I LOVE the eyeliner  and my friend Elizabeth uses this eyeliner too and said she thinks it's the best kind. 

I'm also in love with this lipgloss. I use "naked" (there's a lot of naked going on, huh?) and it kind of even plumps up your lips. I used to have the worst dry, peeling lips and mine have been in the best shape since I started wearing this. 

I also wear Bare Minerals base make-up.  I don't like to feel makeup on my face and I just like a light coverage.  I think it works great and I recently (thanks to Elizabeth) added a packed powder on top and it has made a big difference.  

So those are my favorite products..........what are yours???????
