MAC Quad Palette (I built myself), Shroom, Tete-A-Tint, Ground Brown, Texture – I can create a soft everyday natural look.  Also darken it up more for night time.
MAC Pigment, Lithe – This is almost the same color as my skin, so it gives a natural yet polished look.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – This stuff is amazing!  Apply a little bit all over the eye lid before anything else and your eye make up will stay all day.  Literally, it won’t budge for 15 hours.

MAC Eyelash Curler – Very important.  Never skip this step.  It opens up the eye making you look more awake.
MAC Technakohl Liner, Photogravure – This is a great brown/grey color, perfect for day time.  It goes on easily and doesn’t budge through out the day.
Mascaras – I need several mascaras!  The ones I’m loving can change every month.  Right now I’m loving:
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes – Diorshow Mascara – Smashbox Full Exposure

  1. HI Rachel, Thank you for having such a wonderful blog I enjoy reading your post. Would you recommend the Mac Prolongwear concealer if you have dry skin? Thanks, Danielle

    1. The Mac Prolongwear concealer is on the drying side. I apply Mac Prep & Prime first, then the concealer. This protects my under eye area from any drying effects.

  2. I looked on MAC’s website for tete-a-tint and I dont see it do you know if they discontinued it ?

  3. I’ve been wanting to try YSL foundation, will give it a try. Thanks for posting your favs!

  4. I just recently bought the prolong wear concealer, Jaclyn is my absolute favorite to watch on youtube & she raved about it so much I had to go out & buy it (I couldn’t resist any longer!) needless to say I am obsessed! I am a firm believer in it now!

  5. I also love Viktor and Rolf FLOWERBOMB and recently saw at Walgreens, they have an imitation of that perfume. And oh my word, it is so close to the real thing! And for only 12 bucks!
