Happy Wednesday 🙂
I have had several people ask me what beauty products I prefer, so I thought I’d do a roundup of my top 10 favorites! I love having a routine when it comes to my makeup, and I usually do the same steps every time. (Unless I’m running out the door with only foundation and mascara! lol) Over the years, I’ve gradually figured out what beauty products work best for me and what I absolutely couldn’t live without! Everything is linked above and in the carousel below. If you have any questions, please post a comment!!
1.Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Palette
I recently purchased this palette and it’s absolutely PERFECT. Definitely a 10/10 recommend! If you had to pick one beauty product to try, this is it! I was super worried the colors wouldn’t look right with my blonde hair, but it literally works with any hair color, skin tone, etc! The colors are beautiful with amazing pigments. I have used Naked palettes for years, and I will never go back after trying this!
2.Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
This is a fun trend that I totally jumped on the bandwagon for! I actually have the silver one, but it doesn’t match with my new palette, so this is the color I will be buying next. I definitely don’t wear it every day, but it’s perfect for a special occasion!
3.Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer
Eyeshadow primer is definitely an extra step, but soooo worth it! This particular one works wonders on keeping eyeshadow in place and actually staying on all day.
4.Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color
Hands down my absolute favorite lipstick I have ever owned. It’s a bit of a splurge, but I swear by it! This is my everyday color paired with my Mac lipliner listed below. Btw: the formula is smooth and keeps my dry lips moisturized! (The color is 10 beige tribute)
5.Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder
This product works miracles if you “bake” your undereye makeup on! It seals the concealer so there aren’t as many creases and lines, and it gives a smooth finish. I don’t think I have ever read a negative review of Laura Mercier products because her line is simply amazing!
6.Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Makeup
I have tried so many foundations because it’s hard to find a balance between too thin and too thick. Throw my acne in the mix, and it makes getting the perfect coverage even more difficult. That is until I tried Double Wear! If you need a long-lasting and full coverage foundation, you must try this! It never looks “caked on”, but it also hides blemishes and acne scars!
7.Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator
The chances that I overuse this illuminator are pretty high. lol! I love that the color is a pretty gold color, so it goes against my red skin tone. It also matches my Anastasia eyeshadow palette really well!
8.Original Beauty Blender
I don’t know why beauty blenders just became popular in recent years?! I use mine to put on my foundation and concealer and I could NEVER go back to a normal brush. Just don’t forget to wet it before you use it or it won’t work nearly as well! 🙂
9.MAC Lip Pencil
This is the lip pencil I use with my favorite lipstick! The color is a little bit darker, so it stands out. I recently started wearing lip liner, and I love the statement it makes! I swear my makeup looks totally different when I add this small step. (I wear “spice”)
10.Clinique All About Eyes Concealer
I always go back to this concealer, especially for under my eyes! It’s thick for full coverage and covers my blotchy skin great. Not to mention how it brightens your entire face up! I seriously only use the brightening powder over the concealer to seal it because it’s already fabulous!
