I use alot of mac makeup and also loving the new rimmel foundations.  For the summer I usually use Avons mineral makeup, I like it the best of the mineral makeups.  Sorry, I have never found a self tanner, I am really pale so they always look unnatural on me.

I switched from drugstore brand to Clinique and I’m really happy with it! I use clinique’s Acne Solutions (because it has better coverage) then blush and Maybelline’s Mineral Foundation (you could use bare minerals for this step) applied with a big foundation brush over the top to set/blend everything. I find the trick is to use a good moisturizer and primer, it makes all the difference when foundation is going on!

Are you looking for specific products?  foundations, mascara, lipgloss, etc etc?  I use different brands for almost everything.

MAC!!! I absolutely LOVE all their products and the thing I love the most is that it stays and it lasts.

My absolute favorite mascara is Dior Show. NO joke about this mascara, worth every penny and for me, has lived up to the hype.

Smashbox primer for underneath your foundation. Truly makes a world of difference.

I have friends that swear by NARS and I’ve been contemplating making a switch.

I LOVE makeup. Here’s my suggestions. Makeup Forever HD Foundation (it’s oil free). NARS blush in Angelika. NARS eyeshadow in Silk Road (for base) then NARS eyeshadow in Brumes (for that smokey look). Use a rounded brush to apply the latter. I suggest using foundation primer from Smashbox and eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay. If you want liquid liner, Urban Decay liquid liner in black is amazing.

I love almost anything MAC or Nars… I just went to a MAC make up class tonight, and it was great!  As far as a good self tanner, I like Clarins.

@Bittersweet:  There are a few different kinds that are made for different parts of the body (gels, liquids, creams, etc).  Generally, I just use Jergens on my body (Clarins is too $$ for me to use everywhere often) and Clarins on my face.  The Clarins make up counters are always very helpful and can help you find something to match your face/body skin tone.

@Bittersweet1030:  I swear by their paints, especially for the eyes.  They last forever and never crease.

I used bare minerals for years and then I switched to Make Up Forever’s HD fountation and I’ll never go back.

I love MAC eyeshadows, too.
