I start each morning washing my face with my favorite cleanser...

Next I use one of the best moisturizers I've ever used...

And the best concealer that I have found and love that I use under my eyes and for "trouble areas"...
|Erase paste found here|
You can have all the wonderful makeup money can buy, but if you don't have the proper brushes to apply it with... it's really not worth having. The Mr gave me this new set of brushes in my stocking this year... I love them!
|Bare minerals set found here|
I love Bare Minerals foundation. It stays on all day, and it works well with my skin type.

I use a bronzer for my blush... it gives that perfect "glow" without making you look like "fake baked" and it's great all year round.
|Tarte bronzer found here|
Next is my favorite... eye shadow!! You can tell which was my favorite... cause it's almost all gone. But I bought one almost like it as a single called "Sellout" and it's become my new "all over the eye lid favorite". I mix up the crease color everyday, just depends on my outfit or mood.

And last are the finishing touches, eyeliner and mascara.

That's my morning ritual when it comes to my face. Of course, I have do another post dedicated to lipliners, lipsticks and lipgloss. After all, that's a full post just in itself!
Do y'all have some great beauty secrets that I need to know about? And as you can tell from the links... I'm a Sephora and Ulta shopper. However, I always wait for Ulta's coupons to come in the mail, and I like to keep adding up my points when shopping at Sephora! You never know when their 500 point gift will be the one you just "have to have"! =)
