For products on their own, the best lipstick (smoothest, least drying) i have found is Shiseido Perfect Rouge, with my favorite colors being Rouge Parfait (a snazzy pink) and Showgirl (a great red). Mascara is Estee Lauser Sumptuous Infinite-love the thin consistency and esp. the wand. For powder, Shiseido’s loose translucent powder really keeps the shine away.
I really like combining MAC eyeliner and Smashbox eyeshadow. I bought a master class palette a while ago, and like all of the bright eye shadows in there, as well as the neutral tones.
For women over 40, Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer for evening out skin tone, plus Clé de Peau concealer to go after hyper-pigmented spots, or under-eye circles, or pimples. Because, yes, life is unjust and you may find yourself with age spots and pimples at the same time;).
I have a chubby stick like Clinique’s, but by Sally Hansen, in a fabulous shade of red that livens up the face but is appropriate for daytime/office. Great by itself, but I usually wear it with lip liner; and less than half the price of Clinique.
To the first question, I always wear lip liner and lipstick.
I’ve seen discussions of how mothers can pump breast milk at work, including stories of the added difficulties of court or depos, on here before. I’m surprised that no one seems to be talking about how Donald Trump treated the lawyer who needed to take a break to pump (he walked out of the depo, after calling her disgusting). Did I just miss the conversation and it’s on a different post?
If I want my makeup to last and last I’ll usually layer powder blush over cream blush – my best combination is the NARS Matte Multiple in Laos and NARS blush in Deep Throat.
