Hello my lovelies!
Today I am going to share with all of you my ride or die makeup products. Simply put, these are products that I simply cannot live without, and no matter how often I use them, I will always know they’re my fallback products.
Foundation: Clarins Everlasting Foundation SPF 15 – I don’t wear this foundation as often as I would like to, simply because it’s so expensive, but this has the most beautiful finish on my oily skin, and doesn’t look at all cakey. The price makes it hard to want to use, however I will always be a die hard fan.
Concealer/Highlight: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer – Honestly I don’t think any other product on the planet could beat this concealer for me. The lightest shade is spot on, and works as a great highlighter for me, as well as providing amazing ass coverage. If you haven’t tried this concealer, then what are you doing with your life?
Spot concealer: Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit- I’m not crazy about this product for under my eyes, but it works its magic on my blemishes. As most of you know, I have oily, acne prone skin, and this concealer definitely cancels out any discoloration I may have in that area. Are my spots invisible? No. Close enough? Yes.
Under Eye Powder: NYX Cosmetics HD Finishing Powder in Yellow – I LOVE this powder for my undereyes. The yellow color is great for brightening, but not too yellow on my ultra pale skin. This prevents major creasing for me, and gives such a beautiful satin finish to your under eyes.
Face Setting Powder: M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation – Again, I know how the saying goes: don’t put powder foundation on top of your liquid foundation. I say poop to that. This powder is so beautiful and high coverage, but does NOT make me look cakey in he slightest. I may not have had this powder long, but I’m already in love.
Contour Powder: NARS Blush Duo in Olympia – The fact that this is called a blush duo is weird to me, but the contour powder in this duo is such a lovely cool toned brown, and I just can’t stop using it. This powder is so high quality and gorgeous on the skin, it just makes the angels sing, I swear to you.
Bronzing Powder: Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light – Also not a product I’ve had very long, however I know this bronzer is my everything. I enjoy that this bronzer is actually BROWN, and not a strange orange hybrid. A little of this goes such a long way, so in my mind, you really get what you pay for.
Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface – Yet another product that I haven’t had long, but it’s just that amazing. I always thought these blushes were overrated, until I decided to buy them. Dollface is such a beautiful universal pink, and I think everyone should be blessed with this shade in their life.
Highlight: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl – If I could choose one shade in the world of highlighters that compliments pale skin perfectly, it would be this one. While I understand that glittery highlights are everyone’s thing, I love a strong highlight on my cheekbones, and Pearl just delivers that and more. This highlight is my child.
Palette: Smashbox #ShapeMatters Palette – This palette has pretty much been my constant companion since the day I got it. It has been well used, but not abused. The shadows in this palette are such high quality, and I’ve all but used up the yellow powder shade. This palette also comes with gorgeous contour, bronzer, and highlight shades.
Liquid Eyeliner: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper – I’ve used this liquid liner over the past few years on and off, but I know it’s always a liner that I can fall back on. The pigmentation is right on point, and the tip is, well, right on point as well.
Pencil Eyeliner: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – While I’m a fan of most of the colors, the formula is what really impresses me. This is the ONLY pencil liner that stays in my waterline until I remove it myself, and that’s a lot for someone with watery eyes. Everything else just seems like a disappointment compared to these babies.
Mascara: Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara – I started using this mascara about 4 months ago religiously, and my first and only tube is still going strong. This stuff is BLACK, and sticks to your lashes like a dream. While it is a bitch to get off, I view that as a good thing at the end of the day.
Lipstick: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks – I may not have all of them, but I sure do enjoy the two that I have. Out of all of my liquid lips (which is a lot), this is my favorite formula. The glide on so well, look and feel amazing, and don’t transfer!
Setting Spray: Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray – I know the cult favorite is the UD All Nighter, but this particular version quickly stole my heart. First off, it’s literally made for my type of skin, and second, it actually does its job, which is not something I can say for all setting sprays.
That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a lovely start to your week. Welcome to Fall!
