Hello everyone! Today I am doing a different kind of post and I’m going to start getting into the beauty category! I LOVE makeup and I have for years now. I love to experiment with makeup and I love trying out new products! Today I am going to share with you all my go to makeup products! Most of these are high end, but I do have some drugstore favorites!
So before I put anything on my face, I apply a primer. I am obsessed with the Origins Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb. It is amazing. I just recently started using it and I can’t stop. It has a really amazing cooling effect. It does have a tint to it, but nothing crazy. I bought mine at Sephora, but you can also get it on Origins website. If theres one product I wold recommend its this one, y’all need it.
So for my face I don’t really enjoy the really heavy foundations, but I do like full coverage. I’ve tried many, MANY foundations and I’ve found a couple that I enjoy. The Fenty Beauty foundation is amazing it feels so light on my face and I can continue adding more than one layer and it doesn’t cake up at all. I could not recommend this foundation enough! It works wonders! On a more day to day basis I use IT Cosmetics CCream! It gives me a glowy look and it’s really light weight as well! I have also recommended this product to so many of my friends and they love it! A great dupe for the It Cosmetics CC Cream is the Maybelline BB cream it’s extremely inexpensive and you can get it at Ulta or any drugstore!
The Hoola Bronzer by Benefit is by far my favorite powder bronzer, but the Hoola Quickie contour stick is amazing as well. I find that it melts into my skin really nicely. Either one works perfect, it’s just what you prefer!
Now highlighter is my absolute favorite! It can make you glow and really brighten your face! I use a ton of different highlighters, but one that I’ve repurchased multiple times is the MAC cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. It’s an all time classic for me and I find it to not be too overwhelmingly glittery.
I have two favorite under eye concealers. The Tarte Shape Tape Contour concealer is so creamy and covers up all the discoloration under my eyes! This concealer lasts me months! It’s a full coverage concealer, for sure. You can get this in Ulta stores and online! My other favorite concealer that’s works wonders is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. This product is just as good as a high end concealer! It has amazing coverage and is so creamy and really melts into my skin!
I have two mascaras that I really love. The Loreal Voluminous Original Mascara is the one I find myself always going back to. It adds length and volume to my lashes which is perfect because I do not have voluminous lashes at all. This mascara is also so incredibly inexpensive which is always a plus. Another mascara I also use very often is the Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced! This mascara also really lengthens and adds volume to my lashes and I don’t need to use too much of it, a little goes a pretty long way with this mascara.
Lastly, lips, it’s my favorite for many reasons. I think lip products can really complete a makeup look. I’ll start with my favorite lip balm. I have been using Rosebud Salve for so long I don think I can live without it at this point. It is one of the most moisturizing products you can put on your lips. YOU. NEED. IT.
For lip liner I only wear the Spice Lip Pencil from MAC cosmetics. I have repurchased this multiple times and it will just never get old it’s the perfect color for just about any makeup look. It’s neutral, but a little bit darker… I know, I’m excellent at describing this color. On top I use either Velvet Teddy by MAC which is my favorite lipstick! If I’m feeling a more pink lip I use the Tarte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit.
Lip gloss has been my thing lately! My favorite ones are the Buxom Full- On Lip polish. Warning that they make your lips tingle and feel kind of like its numbing them. SO some of you might hate this product because of that. I’ve used it so much that I don’t even feel my lips go numb or tingle anymore.
So that’s it, this is what is usually on my face. Now its not the same everyday. Sometimes I add makeup like blush or eyeshadow. But for everyday this is usually what I got for!
