For me it would be lipstick with mascara being a close second. I always say if I went on survivor I would get kicked of the boat on the way to the island when they found out my two must bring items were, lipstick and mascara.
For me, it would definitely be an organic lipstick because the natural formulation would mean I could use it as a blusher as well! Like most who have posted here, I love all my various cosmetics but if I had to, I could make do with lipstick as it's pretty easy to make eyeshadows and liners from natural products.
I might wear makeup once or twice a year if I really feel like it. I used to wear it more when I had to give scientific presentations. It acted a bit like a mask to stop me showing the real me to everyone, which made me feel safer. I do not need to that any more.
For me it would be Gale Hayman Youth Lift Foundation in Nude and a decent mascara. I'm using Maybelline XXL Pro Mascara at the moment which has one brush that conditions your lashes and the other one colours and builds them up. With mascara it can also double up as eyeliner.
my eye liner, lash curler(i don't have natural curls but i do have long lashes), my lipstick, my compact powder, a small bottle of perfume. They're a "must" i cannot separate from either one nor have one single choice to accompany me. In case i am going to a party with a small clutch then it's be the lipstick.
I could and do manage without any makeup, but moisturizer I couldn't live without. I wonder who I would be using makeup for, anyway? probably wouldn't have a mirror. I also think life would be rather hellish without peanut butter, but that's another subject.
Oh yeah, and sunscreen--highest SPF I can find. Love Neutrogena's 100+--I've got NO tan lines and that much less chance of skin cancer while still having total fun in the sun. Several other high-SPF brands out there--keep experimenting.
I used to think I wouldn't do it, but now I do it a lot. I used to get up every morning, have a cup of coffee, shower and do my hair and makeup. I was always dressed, never slouched around in sweats unless I was sick....
I am really desperate... i feel betrayed, cheated... and still he says he loves me, i am everything he wants and needs in his life... but what he is doing hurts so much...so not myself... i hope you understand he cannot...
Just for fun, I thought I would see what your make-up routine is! My make-up routine takes about 10 minutes at most! Plus, do you leave your daytime make-up on to go out at night? Whats your "going out"...
Okay, so I wanna get permanent eye brows. Mine are so light you cannot see them. I have to draw them on. Know anyone who has ever had permanent eyebrows and the results? I would think they would fade, much like tattoos.
