Blog Series: In my Makeup Bag

On this Valentine’s day Natalie from Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers is sharing with us her favorite makeup products. Natalie’s blog is one of my daily reads, she shares a little bit of everything and I always look forward to her posts, especially the “Obsessions” ones, so make sure to check it out 😉

Is there anything you’re coveting right now?
One item I am really lusting after is the Chanel Sublimage Eye Cream.  I picked up a sample and I am hooked.  Best eye cream ever, but I am having a hard time justifying the price to the hubby!

Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?
Make-up tip I swear by is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.  Nobody looks good with dry skin.  I swear by Cetaphil moisturizing cream (the thick kind in the jar).  I lather it on morning and night.  Then I apply Bobbi Brown’s hydrating eye cream.  I really think this keeps my skin looking smooth and refreshed. If your skin doesn’t look good to start off with, no make-up can hide that!

Any particular makeup trend that you’re looking forward for spring?
Make-up trend for Spring I am most looking forward to is the natural/nude look.  I adore a fresh face with not too much make-up.  I am not one to follow to many crazy make-up trends.  I believe less is more-unless its a big night out! I love all the peach and coral lip and cheek colors for Spring as well.

How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?
The main difference from my day look to night look is I wear much more eyeliner, a darker eyeshadow and a hint of lip color.  During the day I keep it simple with bronzer+mascara+ and lipgloss being my essentials and of course a kick ass concealor- I think all us moms need that!
