Faces by Tamara 2010 Beauty Wrap-Up

As a makeup artist and a beauty enthusiast I come across tons of products but there are only a few that I can not do without. Since this is my first time doing a "beauty wrap up" I decided to give you the nitty gritty {what will ALWAYS be on my list} of must-haves. So without further ado... adieu? Whatever, here goes!

*Click on each product for purchasing information.

My Work

My Clarisonic. I love my clarisonic. I use it about three times a week and it leaves my face feeling clean and supply. My enlarged pores seem to be smaller and my skin is much softer. I use it with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and moisturize with Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer.

NARS Blushes. While many women skip blush {talked about that here} its a very important step in my routine. It highlights my cheekbones creating more dimension on my face. NARS blushes are pigmented and very vibrant and with a hefty price tag of $26 you are guaranteed to get your monies worth because a little goes a long way. My favorites are Orgasm, Taj Mahal and Exhibit A.

MAC Spiked Brow Pencil. Before I switched to Spiked brow pencil I was using a powder. In my opinion, the pencil gives me a softer more natural brow.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat.  I have yet to purchase this for myself, every time I go to Sephora the $40 price tag always gets me but this instant pick-me-up brings light and radiance to the skin. It brightens the complexion to perfection and will be one of the first products I add to my collection in 2011. 

NYX Jumbo Pencil. These are a great, inexpensive alternative to paints and paint pots. They help eye shadows that wouldn't normally show well on our skin to pop. For less than $5 a pop, you can't go wrong. You may still need to use a base like Urban Decay's Primer Potion underneath these because they can crease. 

Benefit BAD gal Mascara. I love love love this mascara. It lengthens, separates and add tons of volume to my lashes. I don't have long, full lashes so mascara has always been a struggle for me but the BAD gal wand goes a great job at intensifying my eyes. 

MAC Eyeshadows. Always a favorite of mine. MAC has just about every color you can dream of and for the most part the shadows are pigmented, intense and they last. The range in textures and colors gives you a lot to choose from and will have you grinning from ear-to-ear every time you step foot near a MAC counter. 

MAC Lipsticks. Matte, Amplified, Lustre, Glaze.... I love their lipsticks. Their range of color is massive and its the home of my favorite color, Ruby Woo!

What were some of your favorite products this year?


  1. I'm not a real makeup buff, but your blog is slowly inspiring me:D

    Right now, I can't live without my MAC Studio Fix, Blot Powder, and Shock-O-Late Lip Glass. My fave eye shadows of the moment are from Urban Decay-deeply pigmented and the colors are amazing!

  2. I have yet to invest in a Clarisonic but I hope to in the New Year!

  3. I love the MAC's Spike pencil for brows.

  4. Thanks to you I am loving Ruby Woo. I always saw it but thought that I couldn't wear it because it was too sexy. Well when I wear it I feel sexy. Thanks again girl. Love your blog.


Thanks for leaving a sweet little note! It makes my day!
