FOUNDATION clinique acne solutions liquid makeup | This is my absolute favorite foundation. Since my skin is so sensitive, I have to really be cautious on what products I use. I have tried foundations from Makeup Forever, It Cosmetics, Estee Lauder, Bare Minerals and many others but nothing compared to this one. I would always end up breaking out or just simply not liking how it looked. This one is lightweight, medium coverage and with my oily skin, it actually stays on. It is non-irritating, oil free and has medicated ingredients to help treat existing breakouts. Typically, I wear shades 2, 3 or 4 depending on how tan I am.
POWDER clinique stay-matte pressed powder | When I use foundation, I always put powder over it to keep it in place since my t-zone gets oily. This powder pairs very well with the foundation above and I like how it is compact and easy to use on the go. I use the shade 17.
CONCEALER nars radiant creamy concealer | This is by far my favorite concealer. I love how it is lightweight but full coverage. I had dry under eyes so a lot of the time, I get really bad irritation from other concealers. This one doesn’t bother me at all and is also easy to blend in. I use the shade vanilla.
SETTING POWDER laura mercier translucent loose setting powder | If you know, you know. This is just the best setting powder on the market. It literally lasts me forever. It is worth every penny.
SHADOW anastasia beverly hills eye shadow singles | I typically use four colors. A warm brown, dark brown, light brown and a nude. I change the colors up so I can’t give you the exact names. ABH just has the best shadows in my opinion because they are long lasting and also super easy to blend. As for what I do, I first cover my lid with a nude color. Then I go over that with a light brown. I put a warm brown shade in my crease and then finish the look with the dark brown blended on the corners.
BROWS anastasia beverly hills perfect brow pencil | I did end up tinting my brows but I use this pencil to fill in the scarce areas. The pencil lasts a lot longer for me compared to the other brow products so it has been my go-to for years. I use the shade blonde.
BRONZER benefit hoola matte bronzer | I have been using this bronzer ever since it came out and have yet to fall out of love with it. I literally have nothing bad to say about it. I have never seen a bronzer that works for so many skin tones. It stays on forever and is so easy to blend in. It is definitely my go-to!
BLUSH charlotte tilbury cheek to chic blush | I just recently started using this for the past couple of months and love how pigmented it is. Although, it is a little one the pricey side, it stays on for a while and is easy to blend in.
HIGHLIGHT becca shimmering skin perfector pressed highlighter | Another staple in the makeup world. It stays on my skin for hours and looks amazing on so many skin tones. I have been using this product since it first came out and have purchased many since. A little bit goes a long way so it will last you a very long time.
MASCARA PRIMER lancome cils booser xl super-enhanced mascara base | I use this before I put on my Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara and it works wonders. I have had so many people hooked on this product because it simply is just that good. I put it on and let it sit for about 30 seconds and then I put the mascara on.
MASCARA lancome monsieur big mascara | I have tried many other mascaras, cheap and pricey and always resort back to this one. It is long lasting and really makes my lashes full. One negative is that it doesn’t last as long as I would like as I can only get about three months out of it but it is still so worth it.
EYELINER stila stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner – micro tip | Another staple that I have been using for years. It doesn’t smear, last long and is the perfect shade of black. I like using the micro tip because it is way more precise. I typically will draw a small cat eye because it gives the illusion that your eyes are more open.
BRUSHES morphe | These are my go-to brushes. They are not that pricey but they have a luxury feel. I have been using them for years even on my clients when I was a freelance makeup artist. They work really well and have a huge selection to choose from. Jaclyn Hill and Jeffree Star even have collaborated with them.
