I’m fair-skinned with dry, sensitive skin that often reacts quite easily to products. I’m in Canada so my prices might be a bit different than US prices.. that’s why I put “approx” for everything.

Facewash: Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (mild) …approx $20

Moisturizer: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ …it’s approx $30

Foundation: Clinique CC cream… this lasts me 6+ months. It’s approx $40 so not bad at all!

Primer: Clinique City Block SPF 25 – I put it on under the CC cream.. approx $25

I usually wear the above 3 products during the day (lotion, then primer, then CC cream), and the lotion at night.

I use a variety of eye shadows.. loving my new Urbay Decay Naked 3 palette… it’s like $60 but lasts yeeears.

I used to use Urban Decay Primer Potion for my eyelids but it’s never in stock in my Sephora so I recently tried Too Faced Primer Potion, and I actually like it better… it goes on smoother and more invisibly.. it’s lighter but works just as well. I think I paid like $22 for it or something.

I usually use Chapstick or Vaseline on my lips… I have like a million different lip balms everywhere πŸ™‚

This is a great idea!  I’m fair, combo-oily skin.  Large pores, occassional blemishes

Cleanser:  Olay Regenerist cream cleanser $8 w/ Olay Pro-x brush $20 (knockoff clairasonic)

Serum:  Amorepacific Rejuvenating Serum

Eye Cream:  Amore Pacific Hydra Eye gel

Moisturizer:  Amorepacific Rejuvenating Cream

The Amorepacific products are pricey as hell but totally worth it.  My skin is so complicated and I never saw results like this my whole life.  I’m currently using a kit that I paid $65 for.

Primer: Stila correcting $36.  It’s ok as a primer but corrects nothing.  Im going to buy a different primer next time

Foundation:  Elizabeth Arden Sponge on $30ish.  Full full full coverage stays put great stuff if you’re into that.  I don’t use it all the time.  Still searching for perfect lighter coverage

Mascara:  Kevyn Aucion the volume $28 or YSL Faux Cils $30  I alternate between these because the YSL is colored.  Both formulas are great.  YSL is slightly softer but Kevyn Aucoin is a more “bang” type and removes the easiest.

Blush: Urban decay flushed palette. $30

Lipsticks:  Dior, Elizabeth Arden, or Kevyn Aucoin $20-$30 or my $.88 coco butter chapstick.  Yes eighty eight cents!

Ooh I love this idea!

I’m very fair-skinned, oily, and breakout prone. My main skin concerns are blemishes, large pores, and inflammation. My skin tone leans towards roses, champagnes, and light neutrals. My every day makeup look is classic (red lips, matte skin, light blush, and bright eyes with simple eyeliner).

(Sorry this might be a lot, but i’m a total beauty product junkie!)

Skin Care

Cleanser: Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil $9.99 This cleanser is super natural, made with organic ingredients, and super gentle on skin AND it works well with helping to clear breakouts and keep the skin cleansed with the tea tree oil’s antiseptic properties. I don’t recommend using this without a good moisturizer, though.

Toner: Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner (with aloe vera and vitamin e) $9.99 This is a wonderful soothing and healing toner that can also be used as a light moisturizer in the summertime. 

Serum: LUSH’s Grease Lightening $13.95 (A tea tree oil gel spot treatment) I use it as a serum on large amounts of my skin. Its wonderful for slowly healing active breakouts. 

Moisturizer: LUSH’s Vanishing Cream (Witch hazel moisturizer to help manage and clear break outs) $42.95 Love this moisturizer– it’s moderately priced, moisturizes well, and helps keep my skin clear. It’s ingredients also help keep my skin healthy!

Lip Treatments: Every night I use three things– LUSH’s Bubble Gum Lip Scrub $9.95, LUSH’s Lip Service Lip Balm $7.95, and Eucerin Aquaphor Lip Repair $3.69 These three combined keep my lips healthy, moisturized, and soft.

Cuticle Cream: Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream $5.00 I have to mention this because it’s done WONDERS for my cuticles.

Make Up

Foundation: Neutrogena Oil Free SkinClearing Liquid Makeup $12.00 I use this because it’s the only foundation I’ve found that doesn’t break me out. I recommend using it with a light coverage setting powder.

Eye Primer: Benefit Lemon-Aid $20.00 A color correcting eyelid primer– it brightens the eye and helps eyeshadow stay on! 

Eye Liner: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner $20.00 If you like liquid eyeliner, this is THE best. It’s jet black and does not smudge one bit! Plus it’s easy to apply. 

Mascara: Benefit They’re Real! Mascara $23.00 This is my all time favorite mascara. I have long lashes already, so I look for mascaras that will give me volume and this is the ultimate. Plus it doesn’t run or smudge. 

Blush: Clinque Soft Pressed Powder Blusher in Pink Blush $21.00 It’a so natural looking and soft. I’ve been using this for years. I also love the NARS blushes (particularly the shade Deep Throat) but they tend to be brighter and a little less natural than my this clinque one.

Lipstick: MAC Russian Red $16.00 I think this is the most perfect classic red. Also been using this for years.

Eyeshadow: Any of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, of course! $28-$52 and so worth it!

Hair Care

Hair Treament: It’s A 10 Miracle Leave in Product $10.00 (for the 2oz bottle, but it lasts forever) I LOVE this stuff. It’s made my hair super soft and stronger. 

Hair Mask: Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque $30.00 This stuff is amazing. It makes my hair so soft and moisturized and shiny without making it super oily (which my hair already is). It’s tad expensive but, like the last product, lasts forever.

I’m a product junkie. You’ve been warned. My skin is combo – varies based on the season and meds I’m on. Currently my skin is slightly oily/combo and breakout prone. Fair skin, dark hair, dark eyes.

Face wash: Sheseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil and Seba Med face wash. Sheseido is cheaper and easier to get than Shu Uemera and gets rid of any traces of makeup

Toner: Arcona Cranberry

Face Scrub: Aveeno Naturally Radiant

Eye Cream: Aveda Green Science

Face moisturizer: Cerave at night, Fresh Lotus for day. Then I put Clarins UV Plus on top

Primer: Too Faced for my eye lids and then Hourglass for my face

Foundation/Concealer/powder: I like options! So I choose between Revlon Naked, Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer, Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder (probably my favorite – it looks amazing as it wears). Revlon concealer. Rimmel and Hourglass Ambient Powder. Bare Escentuals Faux Tan bronzer.

Eyes: all the eye shadow! Most days I honestly get lazy and reach for Urban Decay Naked 1, or one of the two quads I made (lately love Bender and Snare). Stila Kitten is also an easy all over shade. Liner is either Tarte Amazonian Clay liner (in the pot – usually just Bronze or Brown) or Urban Decay 24/7 liner (favorite are Too Faced, Bourbon, Demolition, or Vice). Mascara is L’oreal Voluminous lashes or Tarte Lights Camera Lashes

Lips: Revlon Lacquer Balm (I have two in my cup holder in my car). Stila lip stain. EOS lip balm

I’m a total beauty product junkie. I love makeup and skin care products. I have a Clarisonic cleasing brush and the Clarisonic Opal for applying wrinkle and eye creams. I have very fair skin that has going from oily to dry as I made my way through my 20s. I now use all products for dry skin, year round but add a couple extra in the winter since we run our heater a lot. 

Skin care/makeup favorites:

Cleanser/wrinkle cream/eye cream/moisturizer/sunblock/exfoliator/mask: all by Kate Somerville. Only stuff I’ve found that really helps my dry sensitive skin.

Foundation &tinted moisturizer:Bobbi Brown. One of only a couple of brands that make pale enough colors

Concealor: Nars

Primer: Smashbox Photofinish primer

Eyebrown pencil: Dior

Eyeliner (pencil & gel): Bobbi Brown

Eye Shadow: Laura Mercier

Mascara: Dior DiorShow original

Blush- NARS or Clinique

Power (pressed & loose): Clinique

lips: Chanel lip gloss or Dior lipstick (and Carmex Chapstick at nighttime) 

For hair I like:

Shampoo/Conditioner: Biologe by Matrix for color,Bumble & bumble for thickening


hair spray: L’Oreal for hold, Bumble & bumble for thickening

dry shampoo: Oscar Blandi. The only one I’ve found that doesn’t stink!

oil/Shine spray: Morrocan Oil or Therasilk serum

volumizing mousse: Tresseme 

for body wash, lotion, cuticle cream, I love almost anything from L’Occitane. The shae butter hand cream is amazing!

I loooove Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid eyeliner. So waterproof you can swim in the stuff, and it goes on really easily in the thin-tip felt pen format. Best liquid eyeliner I’ve ever used, and I’ve used a lot!

Ok, let’s see if I can type all this without getting annoyed by my iPads keyboard.   I love products but can be lazy when it comes to using them.  I’m very pale with pink undertones and combination skin.  I’m also somewhat sensitive.  

Cleanser:  I have an origins anti redness kit that I love, not too crazy about the smell though.  It has a cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer.  I also use origins cheeks and balances in the shower.  I also like the Boots melting gel cleanser.  

Moisturizer:  besides the origins one, I use Josie Maran argan oil light

Foundation:   Revlon 24 hr colorstay whipped foundation.  This stuff doesn’t move and even looks better as the day goes by.  

Concealer:  don’t have a favorite, but I have Mac prolongwear and studio finish concealers.  Still on the fence about both

Powder:  make up forever hd powder

Blush:  benefit coralista, have had the same blush for years and still havent hit pan 

Eyeshadow:  usually just pop some bronzer through the crease and use sin from naked 1 on my lid, but I recently got naked 3 so that may change

Eyeliner:  UD bourbon or whiskey, whichever one I happen to grab.  Black liner at night, usually perversion or a make up forever one

Mascara:  benefit bad gal lash or diorshow 

Lips:   I’m a Chapstick girl, I have bought some new lip products though because I am trying to be more adventurous

Foundation: Revlon ColorStay (320 True Beige for Combo Skin) – 20$ ish & I love this because it covers EVERYTHING,  stays on all day, bottle lasts at least a year, and it has never caused me breakouts on my sensitive skin.

Eye Primer: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer – 25$ ish & I love this soo much, my eye shadow lasts all day and never creases and makes the color that much better, even when using cheaper eye shadow (I use revlon, Victoria Secret)

Face Lotion: Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3 in 1 Hydrating Acne Treatment – 10$ I have tried alot of face cleansers before, mostly cleansing wipes but they were all too harsh, stunk, and left my face shiny/tight. This product is my favorite I am on my 2nd bottle! It shrinks my pores, reduces redness, smells wonderfull, and can even be worn under makeup. I always always always wake up with better skin with this on, its also a good spot treatment!

Thats my top favorite products I use!
