I would not consider myself a kind of makeup guru by any means. Everything I’ve learned has been either self-taught, or a culmination of hours of Youtube makeup tutorial videos. For Today’s Stay-At-Home Tuesday I thought I’d share with you some of my makeup must haves that I use every day. I’ve attached some links to purchase them for your online shop-from-the-comfort-of-your-own-bed pleasure!
Discovered Through: Years of my own experience
TOO FACED: Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
My 2 Cents: Of all the different primers I have tried, this Too Faced one has worked the best with my dry skin. It has a very nice coconut smell. I always purchase the larger option since I use it every day.
Beauty Blender: the original beautyblender®
My 2 Cents: I always use my damp beauty blender to apply all of my foundation. I’ve tried other sponges and brushes to apply foundation and nothing seems to blend as well as the Beauty Blender.
TOO FACED: Born This Way Foundation
My 2 Cents: I have used more expensive foundations before and this has to be my favorite for the price. I had to stop using matte foundations as I got older due to dryness, and this offers medium to full coverage without drying your skin out. Seriously makes my skin look flawless.
Anastasia Beverly Hills: DIPBROW™ Pomade
My 2 Cents: Will go over my brows with an angled brow brush. You do not have to put it on too thick, because I go over them again with a powder. This stuff seriously has last me forever. I got a shade one shade lighter than my actual brow color.
Anastasia Beverly Hills: Brow Powder Duo
My 2 Cents: Also has lasted me forever. I go in with another angled brow brush to fully fill in my brows. I only use the darker of the two colors when I use it.
Benefit Cosmetics: They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara
My 2 Cents: This is my go-to when I don’t have my eyelash extensions in. I typically will curl my lashes first and put this on after. Adds both length and volume without looking clumpy.
BECCA: Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed- Prismatic Amethyst (limited edition)
My 2 Cents: This is kind of an extreme looking highlighter, per usual with Becca, but I have to say I love it. It’s got a very pretty rose and gold hue. With the pinks, I will usually use this without having to add any blush for a very pretty long lasting shimmer
Benefit Cosmetics: Hoola Matte Bronzer
My 2 Cents: Also has lasted me forever. Gives very natural look. Blends beautifully with the Becca highlighter I use. I will use the brush that it comes with which works fine!
Urban Decay: All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
My 2 Cents: Ladies, this is a must if you are going to be anywhere for a long period of time! Makes your makeup stay on beautifully for hours. Super weightless & never sticky
That’s all for now as far as my every day makeup goes! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
