 1. Airbrush Foundation.  I use this and only this.  It provides the perfect base in the form of an airbrush that covers well yet gives a sheer appearance.  (color: 300)

2.  Concealer.  I finally gave in and bought this concealer (pricey, pricey).  It covers both dark circles and blemishes -- and provides an all-over smooth finish.  Oh, and it lasts forever.  Set up a money jar -- skip one lunch per week for a month -- and go buy it.  You'll be so glad you did. (color: beige)

3.  Bronzer.  I put this bronzer in all of the tan spots shown above -- top of the forehead, in the hollows of my cheek bones, down each side of my nose, and along my chin.

4.  Highlighter.  You're probably so tired of me talking about this stuff, but I can't help it.  It's perfection.  Absolute favorite product in my makeup bag.  I use it where the light hits -- above the arches of my eyebrows, on the tops of my cheek bones, on the bridge of my nose, along my cupid's bow, and a touch on my chin.  So basically, everywhere.

5.  Eyeshadow.  I use this shadow in the crease (wearing it wet when a more dramatic effect is wanted; color: smoky topaz), and this highlighting shadow on my upper lid and right beneath the eyebrow (queen phyllis).

6.  Eyeliner.  The best eyeliner.  That is all.

7.  Mascara.  They rightfully label this one the False Lashes mascara.  It thickens and lengthens without that nasty spider effect.

8.  Eyebrows.  Eyebrows are face game changers.  I use brow gel and the brow whiz (caramel) on the regular.

9.  Blush.  After reading that Faith Hill swears by this one, I tried it and haven't looked back.  It's the perfect baby pink to dust just along the cheekbone.

10.  Shimmer.  I ordered this product on Monday after researching products that add a bit of shimmer to the apples and hollows of the cheeks.  Tons of reviews pointed to this stuff -- and it's 'da bomb.  Warning: use it sparingly -- it's as powerful as it is perfect.

11.  Lips.  I apply this lip balm at least once a day.  It moisturizes my lips and the added mint smell is just an added bonus.  I follow the balm with this lipstick.  Finally, I place just a bit of this lip gloss in the bow of my lips (in color Baby -- same one that Lisa Vanderpump uses).
