MAKEUP MUST-HAVES

Updated: Dec 21, 2018



Here is a list of some of my all time favorite, go-to makeup products! Hope this helps those of y'all who have been asking about what products I use. Feel free to DM me any questions on Instagram!


Starting off with skin...


Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer ($54)



This is actually the most expensive product on this list, but totally worth it. It hides my pores, smooths out my skin, and keeps my makeup on all day. If you don't want the full size, you can purchase a mini size for $19.

Where to buy: Sephora, Hourglass Cosmetics


Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer ($28)



This foundation offers medium to full coverage without looking cakey. It has a very natural looking finish and even looks great on my oily skin. The shade range is great as well.

Where to buy: Ulta, Clinique


Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer ($7)



I have repurchased this concealer about 6 times now, which is really saying something because I rarely stick with the same product for that long. This is a very light concealer which I prefer for under my eyes. Lately, I have also been using the Smashbox BB Cream Eye Concealer ($25) which seems very similar, so this is a great cheaper alternative.

Where to buy: Walmart, Target, most drugstores (CVS, Walgreens..)


Tate Shape Tape Concealer ($27)



This concealer is great for the days when you need a little extra coverage. It's VERY full coverage and can probably hide just about anything. I usually use a little dab of this blended out very well under my eyes or on the lower part of my face.

Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Tarte


Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($38)



This is another product I have been using for a while now. It's the perfect powder to bake with under my eyes and set any part of my face. It gives a very airbrushed looking finish and keeps my oil away.

Where to buy: Sephora, Laura Mercier


Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer ($15)



My all time favorite bronzer. It melts into your skin and looks amazing. Also, it smells SO GOOD.

Where to buy: Ulta, Walmart, Target, most drugstores


Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer ($30)



Okay, so maybe there's a pattern here when it comes to makeup that smells edible. These bronzers are beautiful on the skin, and work great to contour or just give your skin a little bit more color. They also actually smell like chocolate, which is amazing.

Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Too Faced


Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush ($29)



Blush seems to be a hard product to keep on my skin. Most blushes always seem to wear off too fast, or the colors just don't blend well and it starts to look like clown makeup. These blushes stay on all day and look beautiful and natural.

Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Tarte


Essence Pure Nude Highlighter ($5)



This highlighter is perfect for an everyday look. It gives my skin a gorgeous glow without accentuating my pores.

Where to buy: Ulta, Target


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38)



These highlighters are great for when you want that blinding Instagram highlight, but you can also blend them out for a more natural glow. My favorite shade is Opal - but I also really love Champagne Pop and Moonstone...although every shade is beautiful.

Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Becca


The brows...

Milani Stay Put Brow Color ($8)



This brow product really does stay put all day. I haven't ever used the highly recommended Anastasia Dip Brow, but I think this product would be a great, cheaper dupe for it. I also use the Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil ($21) to sometimes finish off my brows, and I then set them in place with the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel ($22) - it's pretty much super glue for your brows.

Where to buy: Walmart, Target, most drugstores

The eyes...


Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation ($5)



So this isn't actually an eye product, but that's what I use it for. I've been using this foundation to prime my eyes for a long time now. I prefer a thicker eye primer to cover any discoloration and keep my eyeshadow from moving. This is perfect and it's affordable!

Where to buy: Walmart, Target, Ulta, most drugstores


Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette ($38)



Probably my all time favorite eyeshadow palette. I got this palette during the first release and I have used it every time I have done my makeup since. The colors are perfect and the quality of Morphe shadows are amazing.

Where to buy: Ulta, Morphe


Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner ($10)



I rarely ever use eyeliner anymore, but when I do I still love this one. It's easy to apply and it stays on all day without smudging. I also love the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils.

Where to buy: Ulta, Walmart, Target, most drugstores


Benefit Roller Lash Mascara ($24)



This is definitely one of the best mascaras I have ever used! It's so easy to get full, long lashes with this mascara with 0 clumps!


Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Benefit


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks ($20)




My two favorite shades are Lovecraft (mauve pink nude - pictured above) and Mother (dusty mauve pink) - these are both great every day shades. I love the formula of these because they aren't overly drying on my lips and they last all day.

Where to buy: Sephora, Kat Von D


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray ($32)



I love this stuff! I use it every time I go out and it keeps my makeup on all night.

Where to buy: Ulta, Sephora, Urban Decay
