Beauty Product I Can’t Live Without

I don’t really wear a lot of makeup however I won’t leave the house without slapping on some black eyeliner and some black mascara. My routine isn’t so complex I just use my black eyeshadow, a liner brush, & my mascara. I love using my black eyeshadow as a liner because I don’t have to use but a little so it lasts for months & I don’t have to drag a liner pencil over my eyelids like 15x’s. I don’t spend a lot of money on my eyeshadow as liner or my mascara because I just wear it at work. Those people already know I’m pretty scary.


I have super sensitive skin so I can’t wear foundation no matter how light. I don’t really use concealer anymore because in the summer months I would sweat it off and in the winter I really don’t have an excuse, just laziness.

I find it hard to live without hairspray also. I have extremely curly hair so if I don’t have hair spray well then LOOK OUT! Things will get bad quickly. Every now and then I have horrible hair days (as everyone else I’m sure) but my bad hair days are bad, like wear a hat and a ponytail bad. Without my beloved hair spray my hair would be an abundance of cowlicks and fly aways.

    I like using eyeshadow as liner too, it’s not such a rough line…. Although my liner is tattooed on so I get really lazy and don’t do anything most days!!

    What hairspray do you use? My favorite is one by Bumble and Bumble because it actually holds without being sticky. I know many hairsprays claim that but this is the best one I have found. The big problem is that it’s like $25 which seems like a lot.

    I don’t have a black eyeshadow any more, but I also used to use it as an eyeliner. It was easier for me to apply and looked less harsh. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I have never tried using black eyeshadow as an eye liner. Interesting! I did buy the wrong color black in eyeliner and I am regretting it… it is TOO black. Its an ebony black and I usually buy soft black. Oh well! I smudge it a bit with the tip and it isn’t as bad. I wear brown eyeliner most days. I do wear a very light foundation and I sprinkle just a little neutral loose powder over it. I used to go pretty heavy on my face makeup, but have found that less is definitely more natural and better!

    I love eyeshadow and liner. It’s funny because one of my girls is the same, while the other one hardly wears any makeup. 馃檪

    I can’t live without my makeup, I mean eyeshadows and everything is just for pretty eyes, but makeup will cover any acne on my face, so that’s a must!
