The five beauty products I cannot live without right now:
Benefit Smokin' Eyes Palette. When doing my makeup, my eyes are ALWAYS the focal point. It's ALL here. Even though the products are small, they are great quality and even the biggest makeup goofs (ME) can great a great, effortless smoky eye with this set.
Trish McEvoy eyeshadow brushes. In my mind, there are no better brushes out there. (Bobbi Brown also makes good brushes and I use a number of them, but Trish will always be at the top of my list.) I use the one pictured as well as brush 29 (tapered blending) for the aforementioned smoky eye.
Laura Mercier lip balm. If I had to use only one lip product for the rest of my life, this would be it. It gives me everything I want - moisture, SPF, and a subtle sheen. It smells incredible and makes my lips super soft.
Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick. Does your eyeshadow crease? Not anymore it doesn't. You must go out and buy this NOW NOW NOW. (At the time I wrote this post last night, my eyeshadow had been on for 15+ hours and was still perfectly in place.) Use this as an eye base. If anyone asked me what my makeup trick is, this would be it. You can thank me later.
Chanel Le Vernis nail color in Vamp. First of all, I think Chanel makes the best quality polish. It's worth the high price tag. It's the bees knees. I own many other colors (and bought the YSL Grey Tuxedo last weekend) but will always, always come back to this. There is not a more classic polish out there, and I like to think that I'm nothing if not classic.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
