PF Confessions: Make-up Wish List

(Photo source)

I am (almost) completely clueless when it comes to make-up.  I hardly wore any in high school (does clear nail polish and eye liner count?), and I started wearing a bit more in college.

I wear some make-up to work, but I really wish that I had my own personal make-up guru to tell me what to buy, where to use it, how to put it on, when to use it and what looks good on me.  Is that too much to ask? 😉

Fabulous and Fashionable

Imagine my excitement when I got to meet up with 2 fabulously fashionable (and super nice) ladies a few weeks ago!  I met with Fabulously Broke and Glitter Geek for dinner and it was so much fun!

Being the dork that I am, I brought along my make-up bag so that I could show Glitter Geek my little stash and asked for her input on what products she recommended so I could get the most bang for my buck (after my shopping ban, of course).

Wish list

We took a field trip to Sephora after dinner, and she picked out these items for me.  Check them out!

Tarte Clay Blush ($25)

Bare Escentuals Matte Mineral Powder ($35)

Urban Decay Eyeliner in Eggplant and Green-gold ($18 each)

Benefit Eyebrow Pencil ($20)

Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette ($48)Sephora Brush Set ($32)

And last but not least, Glitter Geek also suggested I try a Fuschia pink lipstick!  Oh, my 🙂  But it looked sooo good on her, so I”ll put it on my list, as well.

Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuschia ($6)

Summary

I was a little weary about putting my wish list out there.  I mean, one can argue what is the point of a shopping ban if I am still thinking about buying these items.  True.

But I don’t think I have a crazy wish list.  It totals about $200 before taxes.  Besides, I would much rather have a few go-to-tried-and-true items, than a whole drawer full of mediocre items.

Do you have an on-going (make-up) wish list?

Cheers,
