I'm not one to give a lot of beauty advice... I only wear make up for special occasions. But the couple of things I do use, I will never change.
#1. Bare Minerals makeup - I've converted so many of my friends and family members to this makeup, I should probably get a kickback! It is absolutely the best thing I have ever put on my face. I have super sensitive (and really cranky) skin, and this does not irritate it or break me out. It comes in shades for all skin tones, too.
#2. OPI Nail Lacquer - This is something I NEVER go without. I will always have my toes painted... Every day of the year. OK... sometimes I let them get a little chipped in the winter, but I try! haha Occasionally I paint my finger nails, but always my toenails, and nothing lasts longer or has better colors than OPI. Half the fun of OPI is the names! This is the Spring/Summer 2010 Collection called Hong Kong. The colors have names like Red My Fortune Cookie (bottom right) and Lucky Lucky Lavender (top left).
