My Favourite Make-Up

I don't know about the rest of you, but I love make-up! I'm really into collecting different colors from different brands and combining them all. I've compiled a list of my favourite make-up for you all.
Wet and Wild Liquid Eyeliners. These are my absolute favourite liquid eyeliners to date. They take a little bit of getting used to because they have a bristled brush at the end to apply it, but with a little practice you can make it look as perfect as you want it to. My favourite colors are the fluorescent green and the deep purple. You can find them at most Wal-Marts and some drugstores.
Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express is what I'm currently using for mascara. I love how it really beefs up my lashes and gives them the appearance of being a little bit thick. In order to avoid clumping, give your eyelashes a quick flick with an eyelash brush and then apply the mascara. Use as much as you like. I personally like my eyelashes really thick looking, so I use a lot.
Cover Girl's Ultimate Finish liquid powder make-up and loose powder look great together! Apply the liquid powder first to cover the imperfections, and then apply the powder to keep the liquid in place. I've even heard that the powder helps soak up some excess oil from your face.
Cover Girl Eye Enhancing Shadows are really great for bringing out your eye colors. I currently use Cafe au Lait because of my deep brown eye color. I use the darkest brown on my lids and then apply a small line of the pinkish color on top of the brown. It makes my eyes really pop out. I prefer applying it with make-up brushes as opposed to the applicators that come with the pack because brushes give me more control over where the shadow is going.
I hope this has helped some of you ladies with your selection of make-up. On my next trip down to the south, I'm going to try to pick up some MAC cosmetics. When I do, I'll tell you what I love and hate about MAC products. Until then, I hope you're all having a great summer!
