my make-up picks...

As a busy mom on the go I don't always have a lot of time to spend on my make-up routine.  But I won't mince words... make-up is a MUST!  I need something that I can get my hands on quickly (all of these items can be found at Target), that are easy to use and that are easy on the wallet.

These aren't just items that I kind-of-sort-of like.  These are the items that are in my make-up bag right NOW!  I use a combo of these each and every day... check them out. I highly, highly recommend each of them.

This is my "winter" foundation.  It's light weight, but has great coverage and if you like a make-up primer, you will LOVE this make-up, it feels like you put a primer on, but without the weight of a primer.  LOVE this foundation.

I love this sweet lip gloss that has just the perfect touch of color and tastes, errr, smells... amazing!  

I prefer the brown/black version of this mascara, but black is available too.  I picked this mascara up on a whim, but I keep going back to it time after time.  I really like the applicator and it really does lengthen and separate my lashes.  My only, very small, complaint is that I seem to fly through this stuff.  Although, maybe that's not so bad seeing how they recommend to replace your mascara often.

I love a liquid eyeliner from time to time.  At first I had a hard time putting this on very well - but I think that was user error. I love this color and I love that it also washes off easily.

This is a very light weight concealer that is also very creamy. I like to use this on my under eyes every day.

This is a bronzer that isn't too "bronze" - I don't know any other way to explain it. I use just a touch in the winter as a blush or skin brightener and then a little more in the summer to get a true bronzed look.

If you don't have a lot of time but want to wear eye shadow this is the product for you... it's quick and easy and looks great all day.  

This is mostly my summer foundation, because I like the way it feels on my skin for the summer.  But any season this is a great powder foundation that REALLY works.  It has great coverage and is easy to apply.

There you have it!  That's the jist of my make-up bag!

I tried out this makeup based on your recommendation. I really like the mascara so far and I'm waiting for my expensive, department store foundation to run out so I can try it out. I never even noticed this line before at Target which is strange since I'm there multiple times per week.

7 is my favorite number...Thanks for sharing your favorite makeup (I'd wondered what you use - you always look great!)! Can't wait to try the foundation!

Thanks for sharing! I think I'll definitely give the concealer a try and maybe the bronzer and powdered foundation too!

Andrea said...

I've always wondered how this line was! Could you share your product colors? We're similar in coloring so I may order online! No Target close by :(

Kathy said...

Thanks for the tip. I'm on my way to Target and I'm going to try the eye mousse.

Andrea, I always buy the lightest color... I'm pretty fair.
For the foundation the color is "light - 02" and for the powder the color is "buff - 15" (buff might not be the lightest, but since I use it in the summer, my skin is usually a bit tanner then).

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the recommendations. I tend to stick to drugstore brands, and I could actually afford these.
