Transformer by Paula Dorf is one of my all-time favorite beauty essentials. I put a couple drops of this into a small container, wet a fine angle brush, and then use it to pick up wet color from any of my powder eyeshadow products, and this turns the color into a solid, non-flaky eyeliner that won't smudge or smear until I remove it later. It also removes easily when I clean my face, so I don't feel bogged down with cruddy products.

The other thing essential to a great finish on my makeup is good brushes - I don't know how companies that make crap brushes stay in business - this is one area where the investment lasts for many, many years. With proper care, brushes can last a very long time.


For face, I use Smashbox Adjust Photo Finish Primer, Fresh High Noon bronzer, and I'm completely non-comitting when it comes down to foundation. Sometimes it's BE, sometimes it's L'oreal.
For mascara, I use Revlon Extra Super Lash, and for eyeliner, I looove Urban Decay 24/7 Glitter Pencil. Eyeshadows, I go with Fresh's eyeshadow compacts.
As for lipstick, Fresh Lipstick in Cranberry Lemonade and Magnolia Mist are my very faves, while Aveda lip tints are close behind. And for lip gloss, I love Mac Lipglass, DKNY Be Delicious gloss, and everything from Kiehl's. Oh, and DuWop.

Haha, I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff...but oh well. :)

I tried the Avon Anew and it broke me out from all the glycerin in it; so it's a bad one for me.

My must-haves:
1. Noxema cleanser. I love this stuff!
2. Witch Hazel for toner, because like you said, alcohol is drying and horrible for your skin!
3. Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moisturizer in Light/Med, with SPF 15. Easy, go-to for everyday wear. I look finished without being cakey.
4. Everyday Minerals- I love all their stuff!
5. Burts Bees lip balm. yum, 'nuff said.
6. Physician's Formula Mineral Wear mascara in Black. I only need one coat and end up with dark, curvy, thick and loooooong lashes.
Whew! That's quite a list!


i love my cork and #266 brush. essential!
