I am basically makeup obsessed. Which is funny, because I don’t really wear a TON of it on a daily basis, but I really love what I do use and I’m always on the lookout for the holy grail products that will change my life. I have found a few products that are definitely ride or die for me, and I wanted to share! Let’s go!
Also, if you like this look above, I have a live video tutorial HERE showing how I did it.
And a tutorial on my eyebrows, HERE!
I don’t wear either of these daily, but will use one or the other if I need a little coverage. For spot coverage (and all over if I mix with a little sunscreen!), I use It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in medium. This stuff is no joke, friends, and covers like crazy. It IS thick, so a little goes a long way. For a sheer, all over look, It Cosmetics CC cream is AH-MAZING. I use medium in the summer and light in the winter.
I have tried a zillion mascara’s and always go back to It Cosmetics Superhero mascara. It gives volume and drama like no other, and cannot be beat. I find this tube does get clumpy after a month and a half or so of use, but you CAN buy the travel sizes and use those and it eliminates the problem, or just add a drop of oil in the bigger tube like I do. If I’m feeling EXTRA, I use this Lancome Cils Booster Primer and it supercharges everything.
Eyeliner + Eyeshadow
I’ve been using a trio of Mally eyeliners for months now and love them, though they aren’t as long wearing on my top lid over shadows as I’d like. Urban Decay is my next fave! I am pretty simple and use a black on my top lashes and darker brown on my lower lashes.
Those of you that watch my Facebook live videos know that I am OBSESSED with Mally’s shadow sticks. I bought this set last Fall and I use them daily. They blend really well and just look really natural. I linked a video of me using these sticks above.
For lips I use the Laneige Sleep Mask at night and under my lipstick and it gives moisture like no other! My current fave lipstick of all time is Mac’s “Mehr” (a soft pink nude), and It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi hydrating lip stain is my daily standard when not wearing lipstick. I keep it in my car and I am never without it!
For the past 6 months or so I have raved about the Elf brow pencil (and I still love it, especially the price!) BUT, a friend turned me on to the Loreal Brow Stylist pencil and I love it. It is still inexpensive (under $9), and it on par with the more expensive Anastasia brow pencil. I use the color brunette.
That’s it! These are my most used DAILY products and what I turn to the most. Tell me, what are your fave products you use? Anything you think I should try?
