What makeup could you give up forever-BEAUTYGEEKS

This week the Lipstick League wants to know: Mascara, lipstick or eye shadow – if you had to give one up forever, which would you choose?

Longtime readers won't be surprised: I'd give up eye shadow in a blink. I can make do with liner and bronzer and blush if I need to dress up my lids.
