Just for fun really!

I've got the world's oiliest skin (with oily eyelids too), and I'm blonde with brown eyes. I love...

Prep
Eyeshadow base: MAC paintpot in Painterly
Primer: Yet to find one I love, don't mind Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

Face
Foundation: The holy grail! Currently using Bare Minerals but it settles in every huge pore. Have tried all the major brands!
Blusher: I like Nars Orgasm

Eyes
Shadow: MAC are the only ones that seem to last for me, have yet to find a colour I really love most in the world.
Liner: Make Up Forever's Aqua gel liner is pretty good
Brows: just use eyeshadow in a natural shade, need to find a decent brow set.

Lips
Trusty Vaseline!
Gloss: find these all much of a muchness!
Lipstick: As above!

Do you have any brands/colours you love/recommend?

Ooh, nice idea. As in, what you'd keep in a capsule makeup collection?

Prep:
Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer
Body Shop Wonderblur
Benefit Air Patrol eye primer
Benefit Lemon Aid

Face:
Anna Sui BB cream for quick days
Nars Sheer Glow foundation
Nars Radiant Creamy concealer
Benefit Erase paste
Powder.... still not found my ideal. Going to try Laura Mercier next.
Nars Orgasm Blush
Nars Multiple for quick days.

Bronzer & highlighter.... Not found my ideal yet. Next planning to try Too Faced ones.

Eyes:
Probably the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. But at the moment using mostly Too Faced Bon Bons palette.
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners pencils
Gel/liquid eyeliner not yet found my ideal.
Chanel le volume mascara
Urban Decay eyebrow kit/palette thing

Lips:
Clarins lip comfort oil
Lipsticks.... current favourites are Chanel Coco Rouge in Legende or Emilienne, Illamasqua in Climax or MAC in Modesty.
Lip glosses I don't really do but have a few nice Illamasqua ones, they're more like liquid lipsticks though
MAC lipliners
