Here are my top 10 picks for 2011 favorites! Share your favorites & thoughts!
1.Smashbox Contour Palette - All my clients know I cannot complete a look without this fantastic palette! Works for almost every skintone!
2.Bobbi Brown Black Gel Eyeliner - This has to be in my top 10 every year because I just cannot live (ok maybe just work) without this eyeliner. Best gel on the market guarenteed!
3.Smashbox Anti-Shine - New discovery in my kit & I praise it! I am super shiny in the t-zone. If this can help me...it can help anyone! Long lasting matte-finish face.
4.Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Brick - I have used many different shimmer highlighters & I keep going back to this one. It has just the right amount of shimmer. Also, its beautiful used as eyeshadow.
5.Make Up Forever HD Primer - I've gone through so many different types of primers in the past few years. THIS, tops it. Long lasting flawless face AND it smells good! :)
6.Laura Mercier Eye Basics in "Wheat" - This is more for personal use although I use it on clients sometimes for the brow bone n such. Forget the days of using concealer on our eyelids to even out your skin tone. Behold the amazing "concealer" for your eyelid, without the creasing. The no make up, make up. It comes in various colors for your skintone.
7.Illamasqua Blushes - Move away Nars! Illamasqua has kicked you off the shelf. The consistencies, the textures, the COLORS! Amazing. I have an obsession with this line, starting with the phenomenal blushes. Check out their lipglosses too!
8.Too Faced Shadow Primer - I have been tossing up this and Urban Decay, but if I HAD to pick one, it would probably be this. Always, always, always use a primer.
9.Urban Decay Naked Palette - My obsession & everyone else's too I am sure! This was a hot palette consistently sold out throughout the year until Naked 2 came in. I don't know which one I love more.
10.Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Highlighter: Last, but not least! I lovee this pencil for personal use. One side is a matte nude color and the other end is a pearly color. The nude one is used right underneath the brows, inner rim of the eye. The highlighter is used in the inner corner of the eye. Such an amazing pencil!
