Makeup Favorites

When it comes to a makeup routine, we all have our favorite brands and go-to products. Today I'm sharing some of the products that I can't live without!


Make Up For Ever's HD Invisible Cover Foundation: I've tried several different foundations, but this one has been a favorite of mine for the past couple of years. This foundation is light and matches my skin tone perfectly. I've been a MAC girl since I first started wearing makeup, so this foundation was a nice change from that heavier foundation. 

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Foundation: Although this foundation feels thicker, it has the best coverage out of any brand I've tried. If you're trying to conceal a stubborn blemish, look no further! 


MAC Cosmetics Well Dressed: Lauren introduced this blush to me a couple of years ago and it's been my go-to ever since! The light pink color is the perfect shade for my fair skin and it's the perfect neutral blush color to transform my look from day to night. 

Finishing Powder

Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder: I'm a big fan of finishing powders! They really complete your look and set the foundation flawlessly. I've never been the kind of girl who carries her makeup bag everywhere, but if there is one makeup item you can count on being in my purse, it's this pressed powder. Any time I'm feeling a little oily or need a refreshment, I dab a little powder on my face. I originally used the loose powder, bought the pressed on accident, and have been addicted ever since! It's light and comes in a compact case with a mirror, making it perfect for on-the-go touch ups!

Eye Shadow

Urban Decay Naked Palette: I only own the original Naked Palette, but I use several of the shades in this set. My favorite shade is Sin, but I used it up pretty quickly so I buy this eye shadow separately now. The other colors that I really like from the Naked Palette are Sidecar and Half Baked, as golds, pinks and neutrals look best on me. I also, sparingly, use  Dark Horse when I am going for a more dramatic eye. I don't use the black color (Creep) as an eye shadow, but rather as an eyeliner!

Urban Decay SWF: This pale cotton candy pink shimmer eye shadow is one of my favorites to wear during the day. I love this dainty color against my pale skin and blonde hair <3 


MAC Cosmetics Fluidline: I'm not super picky when it comes to eyeliners; i'll use just about any brand, but when I have time to do something special I grab MAC's Fluidline. I use their small angled brush, dab it in the fluidline and sculpt whatever look I desire!


Tarte Lights Camera Lashes: I purchased a set of a few different mascaras from Sephora with my Beauty Insider points and this was my favorite! There was no clumping or excess, which are my two biggest concerns when it comes to mascara. The application is flawless, easy, and the small sample tube lasted me quite awhile!

Eye Brow Pencil

MAC Cosmetics Fling: I will admit that I don't spend as much time on my eyebrows, but when I do I always use this self-propelling and self-sharpening pencil. They made it super easy for people like me, who neglect their brows regularly. Fling is the lightest shade, but I use it sparingly because I think it can look too severe in excess. I haven't ventured out much on other brow products, but they say you should stick with what you know works!


  1. I love all of your picks! I need to try the Makeup Forever finishing powder, I'm newly obsessed with them!

    1. Thank you, Torey! I am obsessed with the finishing powder. I use it everyday!
