What's The One Beauty Product You Won't Leave Home Without?

01/17/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

While Halle and Kelly may feel comfortable leaving their homes with totally bare faces, most of us aren’t quite brave enough. For some women, it’s under-eye concealor while for others, they depend on their lip gloss — but most of us have one beauty product that we wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without. We know Nicole Richie really loves her Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir, but tell us: What is your can’t-leave-home-without-it beauty product? What do you have to put on every day before you face the world?

I can’t leave the house without my Estee Lauder equalizer smart makeup. It is the best foundation ever!

not without my sheer organic lipgloss from Palladio, not only gives me some glow but prevents my sensitive lips from chapping. I usually like to wear a touch of peachy blush.

Indira on

I cannot leave home without any lipgloss cuz u always need that !!

Courtney on

Any kind of Mascara! Then my second would be eye liner.

Noelle on

ALWAYS pink blush. I use the bright pink because when it’s on your face, it’s very sheer, almost like a baby pink. It makes you look young and fresh.

And if I need concealor that day for a breakout or something, then I’ll use that (usually not.)

That’s my “no-makeup” look. But on most days, in addition to concealor and blush, I add foundation, lip gloss, liquid eyeliner and mascara.

bare minerals foundation
has a natural spf 15…no preservatives…all natural.

it NEVER makes my skin look cakey…it just gives me flawless skin.

Can’t leave the house without:

Undereye concealer–Benefit Boing, eyebrow pencil-CoverGirl, mascara–L’Oreal Panoramic Curl, and Benefit Lemon Aid for my eyelids–best stuff ever if you don’t want to wear eyeshadow and want to cover up reddish eyelids.

Oh and also Oil of Olay Complete SPF 15. Always, always.

C on

C.O. Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine from Bath & Body Works. Shines and moisturizes lips and freshens breath.

kd on

Eyeliner. I can’t leave the house without eyeliner. I’ve been wearing it for years since middle school.
