Tag: Must-Have Makeup Products

Must-Have Makeup Products
Tag, you're it!

While my MakeupStorage Video is a bit old, I still store my makeup the same now as I did then, with the exception of The Makeup Mug.  I store my Must-Have Makeup Products- the ones I use every time I do makeup- and a few eye and lip products in this mug.  The goal with this set of makeup items is to make getting ready for work in the morning quick and decision-free.  I know that anything I grab out of this cup will look fine with anything else I grab.  So here’s a quick rundown of the products:


Here's a rundown of all the products on the mug: 

Sonia Kashuk Eyelash Curlers




Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara- Jet Brown:  This is my go-to mascara. I already have very long lashes and quite a few of them at that.  However they are very light so they need a little coloring to show up. Naturally Glossy in Jet Brown gives them that definition without adding too much volume or length so it keeps the look subtle.

*Estee Lauder Sumptuous Color Bold Volume- Garnet:  Because I have red hair red color of this mascara actually looks pretty natural on me.

Physician’s Formula 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner- Brown andBlack:  These have a calligraphy pen tip so they will get between the lashes to fill in that Mascara-Eyeliner Gap.  While they aren’t waterproof, I don’t have problems with them smudging or fading.  I can’t speak to the Lash Boosting claim because I've always had pretty awesome lashes anyway.

NYX Jumbo Shadow Pencil- Cottage Cheese:  A great brightening and shimmery cream color base for any eye look.

*Clinique Quick Eyes Cream Shadow- Sparkling Nude:  A superfast one-color eye look.  It’s got some shimmer so it brings a little somethin’somethin’ to the look while still remaining completely tame and demure.

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil- Midnight Cowboy:  This is my favorite go-to lid color.  It’s got some silver bling so it just amps up the look a bit more.  It’s like Sparkling Nude’s crazy cousin.

LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base:  Best product out there to hold down pigments and glitters, and its cheap too!

NYX Roll On Shimmer- Salmon:  A touch of this adds some glam and drama but the color keeps it office-friendly. I popped off the stopper/ball mechanism so now its just a big jar that I can stick my Real Techniques Detailer brush into to get the amount of product I need.

Fresh Sugar Lip Balm- Sugar:  I use this to condition my lips while I work on the rest of my face.  It is my absolute holy-grail lip care product.
