Beauty Cheat Sheet: Because You Asked

I have spent the past few days with family and friends in Houston, Texas- and inevitably, everyone asks me the same question: What beauty products do I need to go buy immediately?

Well, this visit they also ask me if we have a name picked out for the baby yet (yes, but not telling you) so, the one thing I can indulge the lovely ladies of Houston in is my short list of makeup must-haves of the moment. 

Figured as a reminder to them (since copious amounts of wine and carbs and a list committed to memory do not often a productive shopping trip make, this I have learned the hard way) and a helping guide to the rest of you, I may as well post the top 5 for all to see:

1- Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: If you want to go tinted moisturizer, this is the one. I wear Golden- it is fairly universal to be honest- and I adore it.

2- Nars Sheer Glow Foundation: When you need more coverage (which these days I often do), this is truly amazing.

3- Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner: Have raved before, will rave again.

4- Ultraflesh Panthera Mascara: Robin Coe-Hutshing and Nicole Ostoya are the coolest women I know in the beauty biz, and their insanely amazing new mascara formula is everything I would expect from them and more.

5- Smith's Rosebud Salve in a Tube: I am substituting this for the Stila  highlighter that I recommended to a few friends over dinner Friday night only because the highlighter isn't out yet and this salve is a great beauty bargain. Since I refuse to NOT line my lids and always go heavy on the mascara right now, for daytime, I try and keep my lips nice and neutral, and this is my go-to.
