My first year in college, I joined a sorority (Alpha Delta Pi). Living on an engineering floor comprised of 44 guys and 5 girls didn’t offer much in terms of socializing so going Greek made sense for me. One of the rules my sisters imparted on me upon receiving my first “letters” to wear… don’t wear them in public without AT LEAST mascara and lip gloss on your face.

It sounds silly but it’s something that has stuck with me throughout the years. Like the the mnemonic device, “Don’t leave home without your M.I.L.K. (money, ID, lipstick and keys),” it’s just good sense!

So when it comes to my 5 Minute Face, the focus is always lips and eyes. And considering that I’m usually running late and don’t have time for a full face of makeup, this is pretty much my everyday look.

Of all the makeup brands I use, M·A·C holds a special place in my heart. Not only does it make up the majority of my beauty stash but it’s brought some amazing people into my life, like my good friend Christine who I met through Specktra (the MAC message board) over eight years ago.

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Makeup Palettes

Some of my beauty blogging buddies started a group to share their Top Ten products on a regular basis and I decided to join in on the fun. The first topic is Top Ten Palettes which is so up my alley.

As much as I love makeup, pairing eye shadows is not my forte. I have a ton of single shadows in my arsenal but, more often than not, I gravitate towards palettes for my eye looks.
