essential -noun es·sen·tial

essentialsplural of es·sen·tial (Noun)

  1. Something absolutely necessary.
  2. The fundamental elements or characteristics of something.

In 2011 I happily found a few beauty essentials that I find I use nearly every day. Here's part one of my essentials series

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Beige

This is a highlighting powder that I use on the face as it gives a lovely, darling glow. Someone suggested using it on the eyes as well and it looks gorgeous! I take one sweep through all the colours and use my finger to apply it all over the lid. Super quick, super luminous. Bam.

Eyelash curler

I need an eyelash curler in my beauty repertoire. No questions. My eyelashes like to stick straight out and this works a treat.

Maybeline the Falsies Mascara

Initially I absolutely HATED this mascara. It was too wet and just clumped my lashes together. I was so disappointed and miffed at Maybeline for making a such a terrible mascara. However. I let it sit for aout 2 months, periodically opening and closing it to look at the weird scoopy brush in disgust.
But after all that time I tried it again, and it was AMAZING. It's probably the perfect mascara. I guess the secret is to let it dry out a bit.
It gives length, curl, and definition all in one and rarely smudges or flakes. It's so lovely. Very comparable to Lancome's doll lashes (which I adore but it keeps smudging on me).

filter -noun (fltr)

filter  (fltr)
1. A material that has very tiny holes and is used to separate out solid particles contained in a liquid or gas that is passed through it.
2. A device that allows signals with certain properties, such as signals lying in a certain frequency range, to pass while blocking the passage of others. For example, filters on photographic lenses allow only certain frequencies of light to enter the camera, while polarizing filters allow only light polarized along a given plane to pass. Radio tuners are filters that allow frequencies of only a narrow range to pass into an amplification circuit.

 The colours the colours. Goodness gracious the post editing on this is too gorgeous. New Years res: practice this
