i can't live without them!

i am obsessed with beauty products! my secret dream is to go to cosmetology school...and open a salon.  the second best thing to cosmetology school is working for Clinique! i worked for Clinique to put my husband through school off and on for 8 years. it was so fun! i first worked behind the counter, then after i had my first chicken i took some time off. after a year i called them up and asked if i could be a make-up artist. this was the best job EVER!! i worked when i wanted, i got free make-up, i made pretty good money, and i got payed to put make-up on people. isn't that cool!?! the only down side to this job is i am now a little bit of a make-up snob.

here are a few of my favorite "i can't live without" cosmetic/beauty supplies!

everyone, EVERYONE needs to wear eye cream!
this stuff has caffeine in it to help with puffiness and dark circles.

i have curly hair and this stuff helps to control my hair.
i put it on before i straighten my hair.

this is amazing! it smells good and has an SPF 15 in it.
i wear this morning and night.
* i want to have a one up on wrinkles!

i spray this on right before i flat iron.
this helps to flatten and shine.
(tigi S factor)

i will never EVER buy another tweezer.
Tweezerman is the only brand that gets those
stubborn little hairs out while plucking.
(you can also send them to the company to get sharpened!!)

i floss everyday, sometimes more.
i am seriously addicted to clean teeth.
i also think whitening is a must.
 nice clean white teeth are like an accessory!
(i couldn't resist!!)

when i would give make overs
9 out of 10 times this color worked!
the pigment in this color looks great on
most skin tones.
the color is..

last and certainly not least
Perfectly Real Makeup
by Clinique.
this is isn't heavy and it covers.
one of my pet peeves when wearing foundation
is when lady's wear so much foundation you can
carve your initials in their cheek!
(weird..i know..it's the only way i knew how to describe it!)
in every training/class i went to, we were
always told less is more.
so, when applying your foundation start in the middle and
blend it out. you don't need make up by your ears!!
* oh, and make sure your foundation is the right shade.
