#1 -- True Red Lipstick
|kat von d everlasting love liquid lipstick in outlaw, $19 (sephora)|
Please believe my ass when I tell you this -- nothing will take your facial area from "meh" to "cha-ching" like an amazing red lipstick. NOTHING. And this beaut is my hands-down ride or die b*tch. It stays on like a mofo, and it's matte. Which means, if you want it to be not-so-matte, you just put a creamy red lipstick over, and then IT STAYS AND ISN'T FLAT. Say somthin' now.
#2 -- Eyeshadow Primer
|urban decay eyeshadow primer potion, $20|
#3 -- Beige-y Blonde Brow Pencil for Any Hair Color
|maybelline expert eyes twin brow & eye pencils in blonde, $2.39 (drugstore.com)|
#4 -- Gel/Cream Waterproof Eyeliner
|sephora waterproof smoky cream liner in matte black, $12|
#5 -- Body Oil
|spectrum organic unrefined coconut oil, $9.99 (the vitamin shoppe)|
I like to use coconut oil, because it has one billion uses, so you super get your money's worth. But I also mix it with body lotion if I'm into that crap that day. (I'm a fickle b*tch.) I'm also not exclusive with coconut oil, either. (SLUT!) I'll really use any body oil that doesn't smell like babies. Even babies don't want to smell like babies.
#6 -- Gradual Tan Body Lotion
|jergens glow foaming daily moisturizer in medium to tan, $8.69 (target)|
And this ish is my boss b*tch for a few reasons -- it's not lotion-y (see above) or heavy, it dries fast, and you can control your level of bronze to a non-crazy level. (GET OUT OF HERE, CHRISTINA AGUILERA!) Oh, and it's like $10. GET ON MY SKIN.
#7 -- Black Liquid Liner
|vs makeup graphic liner pen, $14 (victoria's secret)|
#8 -- (Fullish) Powder Foundation
|mac studio fix powder plus foundation, $27|
Ryan Gosling -- making eye rolling adorable since 1980. (Yes, I googled his birthday. Get off me.) Anyway, due to this extreme oily situation, I oftentimes need to use a powdered foundation for a couple of reasons. I initially use it as a primer, as in after moisturizer and before liquid foundation, just to set up a barrier between the oil factory that are my pores and more liquid particles. I also carry this boo thang in my purse for touch ups, because it's a little more substantial than some thin and flimsy powder. I've used it for years on years on years, and it's on my dream team.
Well, I'm fresh out of legs. (Tentacles? Testicles? All of the above?) What would your asses hold if you were an octopus? Oh, and let's get real. If I really were an octopus, this would totally be me.
