Hello, friends! It’s finally here! If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories recently, you know that I love trying out new makeup products! Throughout the years, I have found my top products that I go back to over and over again. These are the products I use religiously! I have a decent mix of drugstore and big brand makeup in here, and I can honestly say I truly love these products. Makeup is a hobbie of mine, and I love being the test dumbie to see what I love and what I don’t.
I have been using the Super Sizer Fibers mascara for about a year now, and it is so awesome for lengthening your lashes! I just gently hold the wand up to the ends of my lashes and blink repeatedly. It lengthens the lashes with fibers, and makes them look so long! After that, I have been loving Loreal’s newest mascara, Voluminous Lash Paradise, as a second coat. I used Loreal’s Voluminous Carbon Black for the longest time, and I was so excited to try their newest product from this line. I actually love it even more, because it makes my lashes a lot fuller. I get it in the color Blackest Black, so it really makes my lashes pop!
Ever since I can remember, I have used liquid eyeliner. I love how easy it goes on, and once I got the hang of it, I can get it even first try most days. Although, I do still have days that keep me humble LOL. I love this specific eyeliner because it is inexpensive, and doesn’t dry out like some others do so quickly.
Okay.. before the price scares you away… hear me out. I usually try to find a good deal on most beauty products. Any product I can find a dupe for that works well I usually like to stick with, but this bronzer is magic. It’s worth every penny. I love that it’s shiny like a highlighter, tan like a bronzer, and has pinks like a blush. It’s the perfect mix! I use the color Luminous Bronze Light.
If you’ve ever watched a Makeup tutorial on Youtube before you know this is the holy grail of all concealers. This stuff makes my face look like I’ve never had a pimple in my whole life. I usually just dab a very small amount on my dark spots and a little under my eyes, and it does the trick! A little goes a VERY long way with this stuff! I use the shade, Light Sand.
This is another raved about product on Youtube! I use this on my cheeks after I use the bronzer! I use the shade Champagne Pop, and it is such a pretty glow! It gives a pretty chiseled look to the cheek bones. I highly suggest looking up Jaclynn Hill on Youtube if you want some amazing inspiration for looks that include highlight! She is the highlight queen and actually collaborated with Becca Cosmetics for this Highlight shade.
I have used this lipstick for about 3 years now, and it is my favorite drugstore lipstick without a doubt! It doesn’t dry out and is long lasting. I wear the shades Kissable Pink 805 and Blushed 420 for work because I love that they are more discreet and sheer, but they also have about a thousand other colors as well! I also love THIS lip gloss in shade Eclair for an everyday look if I want to go with a gloss over a lipstick. It’s not as sticky as most lip gloss’ are, and keeps my lips so moisturized!
This foundation. Is. The. Shiz. Combined with the magic concealer, I have never gotten more compliments on my complexion before! This stuff makes skin look so smooth, and lasts ALL DAY. I’m not even exaggerating. This stuff really is makeup forever. I can wear this all day through the heat and sweat and it stays put! It works even better when I put THIS setting spray over it! I use this for concerts, or all day events where I know I am going to be sweating more, or out in the sun. I use shade Y305 Soft Beige.
This is my absolute favorite eye shadow. The pigment is so pretty, and it goes on with a buttery consistency so it stays put all day. I love the neutral colors in the palette. I used this one for the first time when I was traveling in Ireland, and my friend let me borrow it. It lasted through walking around Dublin in the pouring rain on St. Patty’s Day, and ever since then, I’ve been hooked!
