Make up Essentials we cannot do without!!!!

Each of us is different. Our choice of brands, clothes, colors, how much make up to wear, what makeup to wear, everything makes us unique. Our choices of makeup may range from wear-nothing-on-the-face to wear-everything-I-Own-on-my-face. (No need to snigger, it is a personal choice).

We wanted to know from our readers what brands they liked, what are their daily go-to make items  and what according to them is the one thing that they simply will not be caught dead without. Here’s what 5 of our gorgeous ItemMoms had to say…
