Today on twitter I learnt about the five products that Makeup Guru Bobbi Brown never leaves home with out. The list goes like this - Mascara, Lip Gloss, Blush, Eyeliner and Concealer. Got me wondering what my fav five would be...

On most days five would be a stretch but if I really had to pick it would be ...

1. Bronzer ( Bobbi Brown)
2. Lipstick ( pinks / purples)
3. Mascara (Max Factor 2000 calorie)
4. Powder (Cover FX)
5. Concealer ( Three Custom Color / Jouer)

in that order. My mantra...when in hurry always reach for the bronzer.

What would be your five products that you never leave home without ? Do

you have a makeup mantra to share ?

4. Clinique blush stick in shy blush
5. MAC viva glam V lipstick

Speaking of Kenzo ... did you ever try their limited edition perfume called Holi?

Nars beach is a light yellow powder which looks very scary in the pan ...almost too light but seems to work wonders on my skin tone. I would think it would work great for South Asian with deep yellow undertones

Hey Sunitha !
I didn't buy Holi but isn't the bottle adorable ! I remember sniffing ti and kinda remember liking it. A little sweet and little floral if I remember right.

Hi Syna !

Well right nwo I am dying over Bobbi Brown Illuminating bronzing Powder in Bali Brown. My favorite for a long time has been Tarte Park Avenue prices - its the ultimate bronzer for a golden glow

Syna said... @ June 11, 2009 at 4:20 AM

Your suggestions are much appreciated!!

Five products I never leave home without:

1. My ELF lipgloss (for color);
2. My Khiel's lip balm (good for smoothing cuticles!);
3. Vaseline petroleum jelly (especially good in the summer time if my exposed heels get ashy);
4. Palmer's Cocoa butter;
5. A travel size of Johnson's & Johnson's baby powder (it really helps if you accidently leave house without putting on your antipersipant!)

Hey Syna !

If youre 35 to 42 then Bali Brown is right up your alley ! Bahamas is described as a deep golden bronzer but Bali Brown is a golden bronzer :)

Hi Priya !
Man, I've been slacking on my sunscreen. Must go back on it

Hi brooklynshoebabe !

Must try the Kiehls balm. I have the worst cuticles.Always dry and well...I wont describe it. Its downright ugly. The baby powder is a great idea plus it smells divine. Love baby smell !

Hi! How do you apply your bronzer? I've never used one before and purchased the Bali Brown on your recommendation but it looks a bit too orangy brown with my skin, I lightly went over my cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and then found that my neck looked too light in comparison so I blended some on my neck but it just didn't look right. Since you love it so much, tips or some pics please? :)

Hi Anon !

I'll have a bronzing tutorial up ASAP !

Rimmel Glamour lash mascara w/ Mabelline Stiletto mascara (together)
Mac Cushy lip liner
Nars Sandpiper or All Night Long lip gloss
Boots Expert Shine Control papers
