Everyone has staple products – below are mine that I cannot go a day without using! Lets skip the small talk and get right into it.
The Perfect Base
Having a good base is crucial. This tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier is the perfect base for a natural look. I use this every day – it gives me a natural glow and dewy look that I LOVE. Thank you to my friend Rachel (CLICK THE LINK TO GO TO HER BLOG!) for introducing me to this game changing product! If you prefer more natural looks I highly suggest you check this out!
Set Your Base
After my base I always apply powder. This Laura Mercier translucent powder is one of the most popular powders around for a good reason!! It locks in your makeup and subsides the shine that builds up during the day while still keeping your natural glow!
Pretend it’s Summer all year long
This is my all time favorite bronzer. I have gone through more of the Hoola Bronzer by Benefit then I can count. This is the PERFECT shade for my skintone to keep me bronzed all year around. They also have multiple other shades for different skin tones!
Apply Your Bronzer
Brushes are SO important. This is my go to bronzer brush from Real Techniques. I always frame my face with bronzer in a 3 motion. (please excuse my unwashed brush lol)
I have a couple of brushes that I can’t live without! Let me know if I should do a post on must have brushes!
A Natural but Poppin’ Highlight
This highlight from Essence won’t cost you an arm and a leg and is seriously amazing! I apply this to my cheekbones, the inner corner of my eyes and the tops of my brow bone.
Brows are the most important part of my makeup routine because they frame the face. This eyebrow pencil has changed my LIFE! It’s not high end and works WONDERS! It is super easy to use because it’s a twist up. I apply using a light hand and in order to make my eyebrows look natural. I swear by this pencil and will never purchase a different pencil again!
Set Your Brows (SO IMPORTANT!)
I’ve been using this product for YEARS! (please excuse the picture quality but click here for a better picture). This is the Anastasia clear brow gel – it sets your brows all day – I swear someone could legit splash water in my face and my brows won’t budge. The clear version works the best so don’t be fooled.
The best mascaras in the game
These mascaras are at the very top of my list. Tarte being #1 and Laura a close second. I like my lashes voluminous and long (who doesn’t? lol) and these do just that. Ulta always has 1/2 off sales of the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes so it’s the perfect time to stock up!
WE ARE ALL CREATURES OF HABIT
Once I find a product that I absolutely love, it’s difficult for me to sway away from it. I know it’s the same for most people. If you ever feel like trying something new I swear you will not be disappointed by any of these! If you want a more in depth description of my makeup routine let me know and I would love to make some type of video or post about it!
What makeup products do you swear by?
Thanks for reading!
