I've Been Tagged!

The fabulous Monique at Beauty Girl Musings tagged me on this one! I have so many favorites, it's hard for me to narrow them down, but I'm going to try!

My foundation: Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation. I also have a fondness for Laura Geller's Phenomenal Foundation.
My mascara: DiorShow Mascara. Still my favorite after all this time.
My blush: NARS Orgasm. I'm one of those people that swears by it, especially in the summer.
My eye shadow: Chanel and Urban Decay.
My day cream: Clean and Clear Oil Free Dual Action Moisturizer
My lipstick: L'Oreal Infallible is my current favorite
My beauty product brand: Make Up For Ever, Urban Decay, Benefit, Dior - oh, was I supposed to choose just one?
My essential beauty product: mascara, lipgloss
My favorite makeup product: right now it's my CARGO bronzer, but this changes at least every month
My perfume: Bond No. 9, Monyette Paris, Tom Ford Black Orchid, Bobbi Brown Beach
My nails: China Glaze, OPI
My feet: Lush's Lemony Flutter cuticle cream
My hands: Helping Hands by Lush
Three products to bring on a desert island: My Clarins sunscreen, Smith's Rosebud Salve, Ojon Hair Treatment
Women I adore for their beauty: The woman being kissed in Francesco Hayez's painting Il Bacio. My mom. My daughter, who looks like my mom. Women who are comfortable in their own skin.
Woman with the best sense of style: Jackie O. She always looked effortlessly pulled together.
My ultimate dream: I'm so lucky to be living most of my dream. But I'd still like to see Italy, own a summer home on the Greek isle of Rhodos, and write the great American novel.
How do I define womanhood: The ability to do a million things at once while simultaneously feeling love, joy, fear, sadness, anger, and rage all at the same time. Endless contradictions.
My favorite fashion publication: Allure, Marie Claire, Bust

Now I'm tagging YOU, my dear readers! Please share your favorites with us - maybe we'll find some new ones!

What a fabulous list of favorites. I am going to have to try Cargo's bronzer now!

I have heard so many good things about the Lush line. Sounds like their hand and feet creams are amazing!

I only recently found out about Cargo's bronzer myself, and it rapidly found it's way to the top of my list. Although I'm all about bronzing right now.

Monique, you must try Make Up Forever. It's such a fabulous line with gorgeous colors. I've never been unhappy with one of their products.
