A Place to Feel Pretty

Do you have a place to feel pretty? It may be fancy or not so much, but how fun is it to create a place to feel pretty? I remember as younger girl loving watching my mom sit and do her makeup in her space. It was simple, but it was her go-to place to get ready and so it was special to me. Now I have a place of my own for my daughters to admire. I love this pic because you can see the cross-stitched picture of a couple holding hands that my grandmother made for us for our wedding.

Basic Ten Items

While these basic ten items may slightly vary, I wish to share with you what I consider to be my basic ten items for my make-up bag. In case you were wondering where to start or what really matters, here’s what you should always have in your bag…

  1. Foundation or BB Cream (To even out complexion)
  2. Concealer (For more coverage on problem areas)
  3. Bronzer (To add a sunkissed color to face all around)
  4. Blush (To add a hint of color to apple of cheeks)
  5. Eye Primer (To create a base for eyeshadow and stay put)
  6. Brow Pencil (To shape the brows and frame the eye)
  7. Neutral eyeshadow (To give color and contour to the eye area)
  8. Eyeliner (To define the eye)
  9. Mascara (To make your lashes pop)
  10. Clear lip gloss (To add some shine and moisture to your lips)
