I have a water based foundation that I really love, I believe it's by Maybelline, but not positive on that, I don't really look at the labels all day long, but it goes on pretty easily, and I absolutely love mac eyeshadows although I wish they would come out with some interesting colors, seems like they just have the same old stuff every time I go up there to check it out, or on the internet. What's your favorite eyeshadow, or other makeup that you can't live without?

Welllll... this is a tough one. My skin is pretty good, so I don't use foundation, but I don't like to leave the house without powder on to even things out, lol. I have an NYC mosaic powder that is fantastic - gives my skin a beautiful healthy glow - if I had that, my light pink ELF blush, my Too Faced pink leopard bronzer is awesome, but not a necessity I guess... Covergirl mascara, and L'Oreal HIP jelly balms... if I HAD to cut that down... it would be the powder and the jelly balm - please don't ask me to choose between them...lmao

I am blessed with wonderful skin so I wear foundation occassionally. If I do I use Revlon foundation and powder. I use eyeliner from fashion fair and lip gloss from yardley.The eyeshadow I use is constance carroll. It is affordable and has nice colour tones.

I actually have 2 pieces of makeup that I couldn't live without and they would be my eyeliner and mascara. Both are Cobalt Blue. I have always gotten such rave reviews about how nice it looks and I know how it makes me feel when I wear it.

well, i can live without make-up but im very fond of liquid blush (by Bench, local brand in my country). it's cheap, looks natural and stays all day. and oh yeah, this is not make up but i like my shu uemura powder brush. i shelled out more money than i usually do on a make up brush but it was worth it.

I definetlt have to go with you on this one and say foundation would be the one piece of makeup I would not be able to live without. Just because it is what it is...foundation for your entire makeup and I would rather be able to cover up all my flaws before enhancing anything with mascara or lipstick.

Lipgloss. Definitely lipgloss. If I couldn't wear anything else, I'd still be ok as long as I have a tinted lipgloss. I also would choose mascara, as I think it helps bring out your eyes.

bare minimum? my eyeliner.it is so hard for me to find one that isn't irritating though.i've had bad reactions to so called "hypoallergenics" before. there was one i used a long time ago by maybelline that they got rid of-i was so mad,i'd never had a problem with the stuff.

I rarely use make up since I'm a college student.. Only in certain party and I usually I wear full make up at that time. In ordinary day, I always bring powder with me! It really help me to make my face looks brighter and cleaner the second it blush on, so I won't look pale. About lips, I can have my lips looks wet and colored by drink mineral water and bite it a little and eye shadow.. I don't use it often. So it's powder and blush on. My blush on is Maybelline and my powder is Pigeon for teens..

I cannot live without kajal...it is very imporatnt...if I miss applying it then many start asking if I am ok...why am I so dull...even lipstick also is mandatory but if you ask cannot live without then its definitely "kajal"

eyeliner makes the biggest difference in how i look. if i had to do without everything else i would still want to have that available to me. i think eyeliner makes a huge difference in how people look. when i see people who usually wear it without it for some reason it really stands out.

I can do without them all, don't hardly use make up, lipstick usually the most. I usually go all natural though.

My favourite cream is Garnier amber Solaire After Sun Skin Soother hydrating milk. To me it’s the perfect makeup. I use it everyday.I can not live without it. Luckily it’s not expensive in the UK. Two weeks ago I bought a family package, for 400ml I just paid less £4. It was on sale. I so trust in Garnier not only my personal experience,also because I read a article about the company and the brand. I like the their idea about make up. They just use natural things to do make up. It’s very safe and environmental friendly.

somedays I don't wear any make up except my lip gloss. and i have to say that if you count that as make-up then that is definitely the one that i can't live without. mascara comes in as a close second but I have gone days without wearing it and I survived.

I am not used of wearing make up only in few special occasions. I can leave the house and attend some functions by just having face powder or even just a baby powder and a lipstic.

hi callie I could not live without my dark red lipstick 'as it seems to brighten up my pale face and white' hair and blue green eyes. I also have to have my pAle green and deeper eye shadow as it brings out the color of my eyes. I dont reallyknow the manufacturer but I love the shades of eyeshadow.

Well I can live with or without make-up, but I like eye liner, and mac foundation depends on how I am feeling on any particular day, never really got into the eye shadow thing, had my face done once with eye shadow and all, did not like how It was done, I watch a lot of videos on youtube where people show you how to apply eye shadow, but I will never try it myself, I like the smokey eye look.
