Life is so complicated enough as it is, so why make it more
complex? I am all about making life easier, of course, one
tube of lipstick lipgloss at a time.

Sharon Rose recently did an awesome post reminding us the
importance of decluttering our closets. The same should
be said for our cosmetic bags. Look through your bags
actually throw out what we don't use, want, or need
anymore. You really only need ten items in your makeup
bag, just make sure they all fit! Here are the items
you need most and why.

1- Tweezers
Even if you have your eyebrows waxed regularly at a meticulous
salon, you still need these. Trust me!
Tweezerman Tweezers
2- Lash Curler
There is nothing sexier than perfectly curled lashes.
Shu Uemera Mini Lash Curler
3- Liquid Eyeliner
Pencil eyeliner works, but you still get the best look from a
liquid eyeliner. Try to find a lasting all-day water proof
Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner
4- Juicy Lipgloss
I'm a big believer in lipgloss simply because it looks much
more natural. Try to find one that plumps or your pucker.
Tarte Plump & Shine Lip Stain
5- Sexy Fragrance
Just add a little fragrance and suddenly the world seems a
little better. Hey, it works for me!
Caroline Herrera 212 Sexy Fragrance Mini
6- Small Makeup Palette
No need for eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, and bronzer. Keep it
simple with a small palette with terrific colors.
Too Faced Glamour To Go Makeup Palette
7- Defining Mascara
Like the right eyelash curler, a good mascara will bring out
those peepers.
Benefit BadGal Mascara
8- Makeup Removing Wipes
You'll need these for emergency makeup mishaps because sometimes
a public bathroom will just not do.
Josie Maran Bear Naked Face Wipes
9- Face Moisturizer
The real foundation to perfect makeup.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
10- Concealer
Foundation is good, but its much better to cover flaws with a
good concealer.
Makeup Forever Concealer

P.S. I'm sorry I'm not posting the prices or leaving links
on this post today. I've been so busy lately! I promise this will
not be a habit though!
