Let’s talk my favorite, must-have makeup products. Every girl loves a good makeup roundup- am I right? Let’s dive into products that are ALWAYS in my makeup bag:
So first is a good primer, preferably a primer with sunscreen. I love Tizo, it diminishes the appearance of pores and gives me a silky soft finish. ( see my morning skincare routine post for all the deets on Tizo. )
Next up, the best foundation you could EVER ask for- itCosmetics CC+ cream. Girls, this stuff is AMAZING. I cannot sing it’s praises enough! I’m obsessed. It’s moisturizing, so it gives your skin that healthy, hydrated and dewy texture. It’s also SPF 50, need I say more?
Third, we need a good concealer. And of course, it’s going to be NARS Creamy Radiant, it’s a cold classic for a reason- it’s just that good. It’s so creamy ( hence the name ) but not drying. It doesn’t settle into fine lines, and keeps those under eyes looking bright and youthful! YES PLZ.
And last but certainly MOST obsessed is a good lip. You should know- I’m OBSESSED ( and always have been ) with all lip products. Lip gloss to be specific. I’ve literally collected lip gloss since I was five. It’s just my thing. It’s nearly impossible for me to pick just one gloss as my absolute favorite- because I always have at least seven lip products on me, BUT- one of my top three lip products is Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Mask. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. It’s light, but stays put. I own all the colors, but I’d say my fav is the ‘Champaign Rose Gold.’ It’s the perfect shade of pink with a hint of gold shimmer for that extra pouty lip pop. And should I mention this gloss tastes like candy? An added plus in my book.
Fourth, mascara. Okay so I’m VERY particular about my mascara. I’m not into a lot of product on my lashes, especially clumps. I don’t like too much volume and I’m definitely not into the spider lashes look. So with that said, I’ve tried just about EVERY mascara out there in attempts to find my perfect mascara- drug store, high end, you name it, and I’ve tried it. So, I now can say with the most confidence that I have found the absolute BEST mascara out there, k? EYES TO KILL | GIORGIO ARMANI. It’s perfection. The perfect amount of separation, lashes look manicured, and so OCD in place. ( Oh and sidenote, I always curl my lashes with my Shu Uemura eyelash curler, trust me on this one, you need this curler too. ) So, my mascara isn’t pictured in my product photo below because I recently ran out ( of like my 5th tube )- that’s how obsessed I am.
So tell me, have you tried any of these products? What are your ride-or-die makeup items? I have to know!
