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?

Smashbox Adjusting Primer (it is green), Bare Escentuals foundation, bisque (concealer), mineral veil and bare radiance (bronzer/blush) – I don’t leave the house without. I never wore makeup b/c of my sensitive skin and hating the look and feel of mask but this covers my rosacea beautifully. I get comments on my SKIN not my makeup…looks so natural I forget I have it on. Also, CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine (natural lip girl), Curel Continuous Comfort lotion fragrance free, and sometimes Bare Escentuals brushless mascara (I have naturally long lashes)

I would never dream of leaving the house without mascara! It wakes up my whole face! I love the L’Oreal H.I.P. mascara, you only need one coat to look put together and awake!

i can’t leave the house without my:
Toofaced Carribean Bunny Bronzer-the only thing that makes my pale skin bronze without looking orange
Boujour Paris tinted foundation -only foundation to date that matches my pale olive skin, light yet covers everything
Benefit Bad Gal Lash–the best mascara, hold a curl & lengthens!
Carmex lip balm-love!


I never leave home without my Lancome lipstick in BISQUE, it is very creamy and long lasting.

I never leave home without putting on some Liérac Dipticernes teinté under my eyes – it’s a great treatment cream that also serves as a concealer. Plus, my Propolis lip balm is always on my bag.

I stopped wearing makeup a decade ago. A neighbor who had wanted to date me called me a natural and insisted that I didn’t need makeup and that I not wear it. I insisted he cut his hair. We never dated, he never cut his hair the way I wanted but I stopped wearing makeup. It hasn’t affected me, I don’t care and I don’t think about it. I sometimes wear it to events then forget and panic that I’ve smeared my eye shadow across to my ears and down to my cheekbones. That’s the only drawback.
