Over the weekend I shared a quick little swipe of some of my favorite products and I realized I haven’t shared my go-to makeup faves lately. I wouldn’t say I am a beauty buff. I don’t seek out new products, I like what I like and I buy it again. Don’t fix what ain’t broken, you know? I also don’t wear too too much makeup. I’m not looking for full coverage, I just want something that elevates my natural look.
So in no particular order, because I assume you know what order to apply makeup, here are my favorites and I’ll try to describe why I like them/what I use each product for!
Saie Slip Tint Dewy Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 35 – My favorite tinted moisturizer and I’ve tried all of them. This is light with ample amount of coverage without feeling or looking heavy. It goes on really nicely (isn’t cakey or sticky at all) and stays on well! This is what I use when I want a “fuller” face of makeup. I have never been a big foundation girl, I find that tinted moisturizer is all I need and this one is perfect. I wear shade THREE.
Rose Inc. Skin Enhance Luminous Skin Tint – This stuff makes you GLOW. A great product for an effortless makeup look. It gives a sheer coverage while plumping and smoothing your skin. This stuff has gotten crazy amazing reviews on social media and I see why. I get lots of compliments on my skin when I wear this product. I wear color 40 which is a little light for me right now, I am going to go up a shade (to 50) for summer! I also use this foundation brush for application – I pump it onto the back of my hand, blend with the brush and apply to face.
Lune + Aster Hydrabright Concealer – I think this is moving to the HydraGlow concealer, they are basically the same product but I’m just using what I have left of the Hydrabright. I am VERY picky when it comes to concealer. I have really dry/sensitive skin around my eyes that can easily look dehydrated when I use concealer. This one is so nourishing and applies so smoothly. I use the color FAIR which is light but I prefer to lighten/brighten around my eyes so I always go a shade lighter in concealer.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector – I love this highlighter. I have had for years and always go back to it. I wear it along my cheekbones, under my eyebrows, and the top of my upper lip and down the center of my nose. It just gives you a subtle glow without being too much. Also have to note, my FAVORITE bronzer ever no longer exists but it was the Becca Sunlit Bronzer in Capri Coast – so natural but not longer made, so sad. I’m saving every last ounce of it! *but truth be told, I don’t wear bronzer often, here and there.
Saie Dew Balm Marshmallow Highlighter – another favorite highlighter that is perfect for on-the-go and goes on beautifully! This one is a cream so it is easy to place. It is super soft and plumps your skin, legit feels like a marshmallow! I use and love the rosy glow color.
Rare Beauty Melting Cream Blush – Ohhh this is so good, maybe newest makeup obsession. It is a cream blush that almost turns to a powder on your skin. The application is unreal, and truly just makes your cheeks look natural and rosy. It is dreamy. I wear the color Nearly Neutral. *this sold out fast, hoping it is restocked soon!
Ilia Multi-Stick – I own so many of these things. Perfect for on the go and another easy application! I think they just redid their formula because it is much easier to apply and blend plus also feels nourishing to the skin. Wear on your cheeks, lips, eyes. I like to color In the Mood for summer, it is a pretty golden peachy color. I also love Whisper and Dear Ruby!
Lune + Aster Cream Eyeshadow Sticks – I forgot to add these to the photo but these are the besttttt. I had my makeup done at Bluemercury and she used these and I bought 3 colors. They go on so smoothly, don’t clump and they STAY PUT. I feel like these are makeup for dummies and I appreciate it! My favorite colors are Frosted Blush, Sunset Bronze and Rose Gold.
Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara – my everyday mascara! The brush gives you an even application, it doesn’t flake, it is easy to build on and it washes off easily. I am picky about mascara brushes and this one separates and gets every lash. I love it!
Hourglass Instant Extensions Mascara – When I need a mascara to stay all day, I wear this one! It does not budge and requires a little extra effort to remove (the only reason I don’t wear it every day) but holy eyes. It’s a good one!
Rose Inc. Brow Renew Clear Eyebrow Growth Gel – The perfect eyebrow gel to keep your brows in place! It also nourishes them with Vitamin E and squalane to encourage growth. It isn’t gunky which I like and makes your brows look soft and natural. I use the clear gel but it also comes in a tinted option here.
Charlotte Tillbury Lip Pencil in Pillowtalk – As I get older, I notice the color of my lips fading. I put off using a pencil out of sheer laziness forever but WOW. Gamechange when it comes to just defining your lips. I feel really good about myself when I take 2 seconds to add liner and this color is the perfect neutral, natural pink nude.
Beauty Pie Wondergloss – I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful this product is. I don’t know if I can ever go back to another lipgloss! My favorite colors are sold out but I highly recommend getting on the email list for restock. I love Nude Nectar and Spicy Pink!
