Tag…I’m It

headshots+090 Tag...Im It
I’ve been tagged by my girls, Marina and Kitiya, to divulge my beauty secrets. They’re not secrets, really – as I’ve blogged about most of these products before. But here are some of my faves, in condensed form. It’s like Spoiled Pretty, the Cliffs Notes version. I think I was supposed to limit each response to one product/answer. But I’m pretty indecisive, so narrowing it down would take forever. So most of these categories will have multiple answers.

Enjoy!

My Foundation:
Clinique Superfit Makeup (day)
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (night)

My Mascara:
Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

My Blush:
MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Joyous
MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Sweetness

My Eye Shadow:
NARS Alahambra Eye Shadow Duo

My Day Cream:
Atopalm MLE Cream (during the cold months)
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (during the warm/hot months)

My Lipstick:

My Beauty Product Brands:
Clinique, MAC, NARS, Urban Decay, Shu Uemura, Stila

My Essential Beauty Product:
Clarisonic Skin Care System

My Favorite Makeup Product:
Lipgloss, in general.

My Perfume:
Hanae Mori Butterfly
Prada Infusion D’Iris
Vera Wang Princess

My Nails:
Seche Vite
China Glaze Love Letters Nail Polish

Frilly Lilly Lemongrass Sage Hand Cream

Three Products to bring on a deserted island:
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment
Schick Intuition Razor (cuz it’s gonna get hairy on a deserted island)

Woman I admire for their beauty:
Thandie Newton is flawless. She always looks so ladylike and regal, which makes sense because her mother is a Zimbabwean Shona Princess.

Woman with the Best Sense of Style:
Rihanna – hands down. I couldn’t pull off anything she does, but I admire her trendsetting style and risk-taking. There are so many celebs sporting the same hairstyles, wearing the same clothes (“Who wore it better”) and carrying the same designer bags. Rihanna is truly an original – and that’s so refreshing. My runner-ups include Katherine Heigl, Eva Longria, Rachel Bilson, Kerry Washington, Joy Bryant, Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway and the female cast members of Gossip Girl.

My Ultimate Dream:
To enjoy a long, healthy, comfortable life spent with my family, husband and a few kids. The means and freedom to travel, be creative, and do what makes me happy. That, and an endless supply of chic handbags.

How Do I Define Womanhood:
Joy and pain. But so much fun.

My Favorite Fashion Publication:
It’s a three-way tie between In Style, Lucky, and People Style Watch.
