For most days I use BareMinerals for all products except YSL mascara:
- Lipstick/Lipgloss –Bare Minerals Buxom Babes (gloss) & MAC stain (wedding)
- Foundation — Bare Minerals (daily) & Smashbox (photos)
- Concealor — Bridesmaid or Best Man or Stila
- Powder — HD (from Sephora) & Bridesmaid or Best Man mineral veil (more subtle)
- Blush — Bridesmaid or Best Man
- Eye Shadow — Bridesmaid or Best Man or Laura Mercier (plum?color)
- Mascara — YSL
- Nail Polish — OPI (many colors, nomad’s dream, 20 candles on my cake, I’m not really a waitress, red)
I don’t claim to be an expert, but I do like the HD items I got from sephora for my e-pics as well.

I don’t wear makeup ever but my face has broken out in red splotches months before my wedding. I got some Bare Escentals and it covered the redness perfectly for my wedding. I continue to use it to cover the redness.

- Lipstick/Lipgloss-pretty much anything. for everyday I prefer tinted lipgloss like CO Bigelow or Sally Hansern tinted lip plumper.
- Foundation- Make Up Forever HD Foundation.
- Concealor- Laura Mercier
- Powder- Sonia Kashuk Barely There loose powder in naked
- Blush- Lorac in Peach
- Eye Shadow- either Mac, Stilla or Sephora brand. I tend to use a lot of nudes, pearl, deep browns and deep purples.
- Mascara- Smashbox Layer and then on top Laura Mercier Thickening and Building in Black
- Nail Polish- OPI pinko de gallo for my fingers and anything in reds or rasberry for my toes.
