Hey guys! Today is all about my beauty must haves! These are my favorite make up products, and most of these I use everyday.
I used to be very reserved in what colors I wore, but one day I just said to myself, I can wear that, and ever since then I’m always trying new lip colors or new eye shadow shades as well.
Let’s get into it!
Face Must Haves:
I have tried several brands of makeup over the years, and eventually I’ll circle back around to the different brands I’ve used.
Every great foundation needs to be backed by a nice primer. As you can see my primer is almost empty. This is the Mary Kay primer, and it’s such a nice light feel to your face, and doesn’t cause break outs to happen.
Right now I’m HOOKED on IT Cosmetics!! They recently brought out this oil-free matte formula and I had to try it. I wear the shade Light, and so far I like it, plus the packaging is so pretty, I’m a big fan of the color! The formula is definitely different than the regular foundation, but it’s decent. The matte finish is very nice, and I’m glad I tried it, I’m not sure if I would re-purchase but it was fun to try this time around.
I also love the IT Cosmetics Perfecting Power, also in the shade light. I accidentally bought the illuminating powder instead of just the regular style. I will say there is NO difference between the two. I expected there to be some shimmer to it, but there isn’t, I’m okay with that thought because I love their powder either way, but when it said illumination, I figured there would be something!
Brows! Brows! Brows!
Believe it or not, I used to never to do my eyebrows, I didn’t really know what to do, or what products were best. I started with the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow dip gel, but then moved on to the brow definer pen, as you see here; I wear the shade caramel.
Once I outline my brows I go back over them with the Gimme Brow Mascara by Benefit. I really like the brow mascara a lot, and if I’m in a rush, sometimes I’ll just wear that. I wear shade 1 in Gimme Brow.
For my eyeshadow, I love to prime with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance. THIS WORKS!!!! My eye make up will last all day with this primer, highly recommend.
I am obsessed with these two palettes! They are my everyday grab & go looks! On the left we have the Sweet Peach palette by Too Faced and the right is a simple palette by Tarte.
The Tarte palette is super simple, and is just nice for a simple look, a few shade choices and you’re out the door! This was a gift from one of my employees and I was so touched when she gave it to me! Tarte has a lot of these smaller palettes that are beautiful shades that can go with any look!
I recently started becoming obsessed with Too Faced, and I’m pretty sure it started when I bought the Sweet Peach palette! I LOVE the shade range and I’ve used all of them to create looks for every occasion. The names for the shades are of course peach themed and they are adorable, I would love to have the job to create the names for them. They said it smells like peaches and it totally does, it’s my favorite thing. I got my mom & best friend to buy this too, and they always are telling me they love wearing it.
Too Faced it about to release the Gingerbread shadow palette and I’m for sure buying that one too!!
Lashes & Liner
Although I don’t wear mascara or eyeliner every day I do have my faves!! These two in the picture were both gifts as well, and I wish I knew about the eye liner earlier than I did.
The eye liner is by Too Faced and it’s called I want Kandee. It’s unique because it’s not actually a brushed tip, its more like a calligraphy pen tip, if that makes sense. It makes gorgeous lines, and the color is so rich, it just helps complete your shadow look.
The mascara is a brand I’d never hear of before, and I think it’s just E (?) Sorry I’m not more specific about it, I’ve just never seen it before. It’s called Black Magic mascara, it doesn’t clump, this particular one is not waterproof.
If you know me, or have followed me on social media (linked below), you know that this is my favorite go-to shade of lipstick!!!
The lip pencil & tube of lipstick are both the same exact shade of Bittersweet, and they are by Urban Decay. I honestly don’t know how this shade obsessions started, but I’m glad it did!
The other lipstick is a liquid lipstick, by Kat Von D, and it’s called Superia. It has a long lasting wear, and it’s usually in my purse at all times.
There you have it!! All my beauty must haves!! I hope you enjoyed going through my makeup bag with me. Do we share any favorites?? Let me know in the comments.
