My Ride or Die Makeup Products:
Face Primer: MUFE Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Green for Redness Correction (I didn't realize how much I loved this until I tried other primers and was like what is wrong with my face today?? This primer just works well with any foundation I use and even though it really doesn't have a strong green color for correcting the redness, I use it anyways because I have rosacea on my nose. PS it lasts forever)
Foundation: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation (THIS WAS SOOOO HARD!!! I have about 5 foundations that I switch back n forth with throughout the year. I'll try a new one for a couple weeks then go back to an old one then be like oh let's use this new one for 2 months etc. I find that I like different foundations at different times too. I'm very inconsistent with foundations haha. But I love this foundation because it's full coverage and mattifying which is a necessity in humid FL when you have rosacea. I would say it's a little thicker/"moussier" than I want but it gets the job done. My runner up is this combo tho: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless + L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. I use both together to make the perfect shade for myself )
Foundation Brush: Morphe Brushes M439 - Deluxe Buffer (hands down easy...I never understood the purpose of using a brush to apply my liquid foundation until I tried it and was like WOW WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING MY ENTIRE LIFE!! I'm sure other people have felt the same :) )
Color Corrector for Under Eye Area: BECCA Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector (I have dark circles and prominent blue veins in my under eye area no matter how much sleep I get so this thick pink color corrector really helps)
Concealer: MUFE Full Cover Concealer (I don't even think this is for your under eye area but I find that it's the fullest coverage and it seriously lasts forever. I use shade Vanilla 5 for under my eyes and shade Sand 7 for pimples/redness)
Face Powder: Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Powder (I barely use face powder but if I do, I use this product)
Face Setting Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (easy)
Blush: NARS Orgasm (I totally forgot that theres other blushes out there to try because I've been in love with this one from day one. I wear it with any makeup look and any outfit and it always delivers)
Bronzer: NARS Laguna (the mini duo of this bronzer and orgasm blush is seriously perfect for me and somehow I haven't hit pan yet even tho I've used it daily for 2-3 years now)
Highlight: BECCA Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop (duh)
Mascara: E.L.F. Cosmetics Mineral Infused Mascara ($3 at Target!! This was the easiest one for me to choose. I've loved this mascara for probably 10 years now and always get compliments on my lashes and I swear its due to this brush and formula! I've never found an expensive mascara that I like more)
Eyeliner: MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche (the warmest brown eyeliner I've ever found...this is a MUST for blue or green eyes)
Eyeshadow (matte): MAC Saddle (a warm matte brown/gold shade...another must for blue or green eyes)
Eyeshadow (shimmer): NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Isolde (this is amazing)
Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Taupe with the ABH Mini Duo Angled/Spooley 7 (these products changed my life)
Lashes: I actually have never worn fake lashes so don't have a brand preference or recommendation! I'm honestly scared the glue will rip out my own lashes when removing them. I know that's ridiculous but I'm just weird haha. I want to try them soon though!
Lipstick (daytime): Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pepper (dusty rose) (read my blog post about this here)
Lipstick (nighttime): MAC Amorous (read my blog post about this here)
Lipgloss: NARS Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Penny Arcade (love this berry lipgloss)
Liquid Lipstick: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina (I don't wear this often but it's my fave liquid lipstick. I don't wear liquid lipsticks that much at all actually. Most are too drying for me but this one I can kind of handle haha)
Lip Treatment: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (HANDS DOWN!! If you haven't tried this yet and want a thick, moisturizing, great smelling, EFFECTIVE lip treatment this is your new best friend! Seriously it's amazing.
Perfume: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb (easy choice...I actually use the rollerball more than the spray, it lasts forever and is only $29!!)
