Carolyn Braden says "Make-up that lasts!"

Want your wedding day make-up to last? What about the make-up that slides off your face on humid summer days?

Here are some products that I've found to stick around all day long:

Start with spraying your face with De Slick by Urban Decay.

Prep your skin with Primed and Poreless by Too Faced. Try their Eye Insurance for your eyelid primer.

Use Make Up For Ever's Aqua Cream for blush and lip stain. (I love 7.) Also try their Aqua Eyes.

Use Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage with a brush for coverage wherever you want.

I use Stila eyeshadow, Too Faced Foundation, Benefit Shellac, Maybelline mascara (the Falsies),

Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and Warmth along with the products I listed above. I spray De Slick over my face to set my make-up to last all day. I usually touch up with Mineral Veil around 1:00 and 6:00 if I am needing it to last from 7:30 am- 8:00 pm. (a typical weekday).

I am a product junkie but when I find products that work, they stick around in my routine for a long time. Try some of these products and I know you'll be glad you did.

Carolyn Braden asks "Lauren Hill?"

I've been wondering what happened to Lauren Hill for a while. I loved the Fugees in the 90's. Maybe she's planning some sort of come back.

Also Morrocco and New York have been standing out a lot lately. I never know why I get feelings about a place, item, music, or whatever sometimes. I guess it's just my brain telling me those things should be inspirations for me at the time.
