Holy Grail Makeup:

Primer: Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer, available at any drugstore

Blush: NARS Orgasm Blush. The raves are true and more. If I could buy only one beauty product ever until the end of time, this would be it. Backup: theBalm® cosmetics Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One, $20.00.

Eyeliner: CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus (any shade) – stays on for hours, doesn’t run at all, and offers complete control with its precision point. Glides on with a smooth, soft application. I’ve tried some other eyeliners and always return to this one.

Lipstick: Revlon Outlast

Lip Pencil: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

Lip Balm: Vaseline or Smith’s Rosebud Salve (available at Anthropologie)

Tinted Moisturizer:  I swear by Merle Norman Sheer Defense Tinted Moisturizer. Gives my face a lovely, natural sun-kissed glow, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, and blends in well and easily. It even has a light, pleasant smell. I can’t recommend enough – love it. Merle Norman stuff is hard to find so I recommend calling their store and having them ship it to you – they’re always up for that. Backup: Joeur Luminizing Moisturizer- Gives me that perfect warm all-over but natural looking summery glow, blends in at the swipe of fingers, no strong smell or streaking, washes off easily – holy grail product. Subtle enough to wear all year round, effective enough to want to. Backup: on days that I need some extra glow,
