Would it be possible for you to tell me if there is a Samantha Baker there and if so may I converse with her briefly?

I was over at Fork in the Road and she posted about helping with makeup/beauty product advice. It got me to thinking about how everyone definitely has their routine. I figured since I am up and Tal is sleeping, I would post about my routine and share things that I love.

Clinique Almost Make Up (I wear it in "medium")
I have been wearing it for 7 years and have yet to find anything better. It gives a flawless look and no one ever knows I have anything on. It just gives a great all over color and also is a moisturizer with spf. So its good for you skin and so lightweight. I like it because it never gets on your clothes like alot of makeup. A definite must!!

The next thing I absolutely adore is Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. I was at Nordstrom's one day and went to see my friends working at the Bobbi Brown counter and fell in love with this when I put it on. I have been using it for 2 years now and it is fabulous!! Goes on easy, dark, and with a clean line. Great buy!!

I have never liked wearing lipstick. Just not me and I don't know when it will be me. I am a gloss girl. Personally I blame B because she has a million thousand lipgloss's. Every color, flavor, shine, you name it she has it. So it's not surprise with her as my best friend that I love a good gloss and these 2 do not disappoint! First is my standby, CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine. The gloss is fabulous, shiny, sweet, and looks amazing. A perfect clear gloss and I love the menthol kick. I carry this everywhere. Add with the Almost makeup and its a great summer look.
When I feel like a little color, I use Victorias Secret Beauty Rush lipsgloss. Love the colors and shine and it adds such a nice sudle oomph to my look. A friend gave me this and I am addicted. Not the best for kissing but looks so good guys can't resist anyways.

I use 2 basic products for my hair these days. After trying a million shampoos I ended up back with Redken's Smooth Down line which really works the best. I love the Butter Treat leave-in conditioner and the Heat Glide serum. This will make any heat dryed hair feel amazing and fast! I am not straying again!!

The second product I have fallen in love with is by Dove. Dove makes a Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream which works even if your hair isnt frizzy. I don;t have frizzt hair but I love this because it gives it some extra shine and mosturizer and leaves it really healthy. Smells great and when I do get the occasional frizz from the pool, it helps it out and keeps me looking great. I use it after the shower or sometimes jsut to dry hair when I want a kick of shine.

Well. I think I hear Tal starting to get up and that is all I use in my beatuy rotuine. Anyone have favorites they swear by? Or a good blush?

I'm so with you on the CO Bigelow lip stuff. Other than that I'm a big fan of MAC makeup and maybelline full and soft mascara. I use sephora blush... I really like the stuff.

I use Nars Orgasm blush and I love it. Very light and you can even use it for eyeshadow if you like. Love it. Bobbi Brown's palette is good too. Hmm I'll have to check out this Clinique product. I use their Almost Perfectly Real foundation and I love that. I get a lot of compliments. Their Super City block is a must too.
