Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I thought I’d share with you guys my go to beauty products that are always in my makeup bag. Whether you’re doing a simple everyday make up look or a night out look these products are great for both and any look in between.
Born This Way foundation -Too Faced
This is my all time favorite foundation. It’s top rated at Sephora and feels extremely light on my face. Its like I’m barely wearing anything at all on my face, and It’s full coverage. I would recommend this foundation for anyone who is needing a full coverage look but with a light feel. The best way to get a color match is going into Sephora and having them color match your skin with their device.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is my all time favorite concealer because it works great when you need to cover up that ugly pimple that showed up over night or those dark circles because you didn’t get enough sleep. This stuff is like magic when your foundation doesn’t cover what you want it to. I would highly recommend this for an extra coverage for those days you just cant get everything covered up.
Coconut skin smoothie priming moisturizer-First Aid Beauty
Every time I go to do my makeup I always apply a moisturizer first and then a primer. I always used to buy two separate products for this makeup step until I found this holy grail of a product. It’s both a primer and a moisturizer all in one and the best part is that it saves me a step when I apply my makeup. I would highly recommend for those who want to speed up their makeup routine but don’t want to skip a step.
Secret Brightening Powder Laura Mercier
This stuff is magic in a little container. But really if you’re having the worst dark circles ever just add a little bit of this powder under your eyes and boom it will make you look more awake. I always use this stuff after I use my NARS concealer because it helps with any creases left behind. Also this stuff lasts a really long time, I’ve had this same container for over a year and I still have a bunch left.
I just recently came across this brand of blush and it’s so pretty! My boyfriend actually bought my first NARS blush and since then I’ve been obsessed. The quality of this blush is great. It’s very pigmented, and so a little goes a long way. NARS has so many different colors to choose from. Next time you go to Sephora you should try to get a sample of it.
Champagne Pop Highlighter- BECCA
This highlighter is my all time favorite, it really makes your cheekbones pop. I got one 2 years ago at Sephora and was using it every time I did my makeup. Until I took it with me on vacation one summer and I dropped it and shattered into a million pieces all over the floor… (I bet you can only imagine my face and reaction) Well I was obviously very upset and the next time I went to Sephora I bought a new one. (Don’t worry I’ve been a lot more careful with this one)
Chocolate contour Too Faced
This is my favorite powdered contour because it blends really easy and doesn’t make you look orange. It’s very pigmented and a little goes a long way and it also lasts a really long time. Also it smells like chocolate… and who doesn’t love the smell of chocolate?
Mascara & Lash Primer- SmashBox
If you want longer/fuller lashes I would recommend this brand of mascara. I have tried so many different brands that just didn’t work for me. I asked a worker at Sephora to show me the best mascara and she showed me this brand. It was so much cheaper than some of the other brands I’ve tried before. So I bought it and I’ve been in love ever since.
Marc Jacobs has some really good eyeliner’s but this by far is my favorite. I use it on my bottom waterline. It’s a gel pencil and I love that I don’t have to worry about sharpening it. I can just twist the bottom and more of the gel will raise to the top. Plus it doesn’t smudge when I sweat or if I rub my eyes. It comes in several colors and the has really good pigment.
Brow Wiz- Anastasia Beverly Hills
I have never been a fan of eyebrow pencils because I have always had thick eyebrows. But one day I decided to try out this brow wiz at Sephora and it worked great for filling in any little part of my eye brow that wasn’t as dark as the rest. The brow wiz is a gel pencil and works more like a crayon so it’s easier to use than a liquid gel.
Soft Glam Eyeshadow palette Anastasia Beverly Hills
As you can tell I’m a pretty big fan of the brand Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is my 2nd palette that I have from ABH and i’m loving it. I love how pigmented their eyeshadows are. But I think my favorite thing about this palette is the different shades. I would say it’s the perfect combo palette because it has both matte & shimmer colors and they have some softer and darker tones for either a night out or an everyday look.
Amuse Bouche Lipstick-Bite Beauty
This brand of lipstick is the best you will ever purchase and I can promise you that. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and it’s long-lasting. I was at a Florida Georgia Line concert and it was pouring down rain for hours and my lipstick stayed on all day and night. I have over 10 different shades of this lipstick.
Makeup brush head- Clarisonic
If you have a Clarisonic spin brush you need to get this makeup attachment. It attaches to your clarisonic just like the attachments to wash your face. It works for all liquid makeup products such as: Foundation, Contour, Blush and Highlighter. This blends all of your makeup evenly and gives your face an airbrushed look. It’s so easy to use all you have to do is move your hand in a light circular motion when using.
MIA 2 Spin Brush-Clarisonic
Speaking of the Clarisonic attachment this is my Clarisonic Mia 2 that I got for Christmas 2 years ago. It has been one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten. I use it all the time to take off my makeup and it makes it so much easier. The battery on this lasts such a long time before you have to charge it again. It also cleans deeper into your pores so you are aren’t getting left with makeup still on your face like you would from a wash rag.
Refreshing Gel Cleanser -Clarisonic
This is the Refreshing gel cleanser that I use with my Clarisonic Mia 2 to help remove all my makeup. It’s gentle enough on my skin and doesn’t break me out. It smells amazing and really helps my skin feel fresh.
Makeup Bag-Vera Bradley
Since I have so many products that I absolutely love I needed a large bag to hold all of them. Vera Bradley has so many different types/sizes of makeup bags to pick from. The makeup bag that I have is the Iconic large cosmetic bag and I really love the pattern of it.
