Daytime eyeshadows you use? Foundation fav? Fav mascara? Lipcolor? I’m a makeup junkie! Besides obsessed with clothes! Candice via Big Blonde Hair on Facebook
I’ve gotten quite a few requests as of late to divulge the makeup products I’ve used from a few of my duck-face-in-the-mirror photos, and quite frankly I’m flattered. Not to mention that I am loving it ever-so-much because my husbands first words to me were “You’d be pretty if you weren’t wearing so much eye makeup” (In your face honey!). It’s taken me awhile to find a combo of products I like, but I really just pick up things that our fave Housewives recommend, as well as things that you guys suggest. So here are the products I use for my go-to nighttime look (pictured below) and that I also use in a lesser capacity during the day. Please feel free to comment below and suggest your favorite products! I buy almost every makeup product I own based off of the recommendation of others, so suggestions are appreciated!
For my lids…
Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy All over lid with brush (Can substitute with Sin from Naked Palette)
Urban Decay Naked Palette Darkhorse in Crease with brush (Also a great palette for everyday)
NYX Roll on Shimmer in Pink Rolled on below brow
Gretchen Christine Liner in Raven Top lash line and bottom inner eye with brush
For my lashes and brows…
Tweezerman Pink Tweezers For stray brows
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel To line brow
Ardell 111 Lashes On top of liner (False lashes are the MOST important component of a sexy look)
Benefit They’re Real Mascara On top of lashes
Then re-apply a line of liner on top of base
For my lips…
CG Lip Liner in Bouquet Line outer lips
Mac Creme Cup Lipstick Applied all over thickly
Gretchen Christine Lip Plumper in Titilate Coat lips after applying lipstick
For my face…
Chanel Lumiere Perfection Foundation in Beige Rose mixed with
Sally Hansen Airbrush Spray to Tint (Yep, leg spray)
Pour a drop of Chanel foundation on hand and spray in the Sally Hansen Airbrush to tint. It makes the foundation last longer as well as giving my face a glow. The Sally Hansen Airbrush also works on arms, legs & face. A thank you for Tamra Barney for introducing me to this!
(Daytime Tip: Mix Airbrush Spray Tint with Olay Complete )
MAC Springsheen Blush - Apply brush on both cheeks and fore head for glow
The party’s over ….
Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cloth Remove lashes and makeup with cloth, being careful not to tug on skin around eyes
Garnier Ultra Lift Anti Aging Eye Roller Roll on after makeup is removed
Olay Regenerist Deep Hydrating Cream Apply on face and neck
So much for the natural look

I’m a former fashion industry professional turned style consultant with a slight celeb obsession, and it all came together back in 2009 when I found Dina Manzo’s Alice & Olivia Ombre Rostte Dress was something I could have in my closet and noticed that Patti Stanger wore Express. I’m from Detroit and even though I live in Chicago now, don’t mess with me . Happy reading.
