My All-Time Favorite Makeup Products

Tula Face Filter Primer - Smoothes skin and blurs imperfections with a subtle tint for the perfect hint of glow. A great throw on and go for no makeup days where you just want a liiittle something.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer - Smoothes skin and brightens complexion for a dewy base. Love this when I want a more 'awakened' look with a little glow.

ItCosmetics CC Cream +Illumination - Although a "CC" or "color correcting" cream, I use this product as a foundation. It's buildable from next to nothing to full coverage, and the +illumination version gives a gorgeous subtle glow. I typically go between shades "Light" and "Neutral Medium" depending on my skin's base color. Extra perk - it contains SPF 50+!

Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand - Apply under or over under eye concealer for an awakened and brightened under eye. I prefer to apply under my concealer for a more subtle glow. I use shade Alight.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer - The under eye concealer heard around the world! The best, most brightening coverage that stays all day (make sure your under eyes are nice and hydrated for optimal wear). I use shade Light.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter - This multi-use product can be used as a primer, mixed with foundation, used in lieu of foundation, or even as a highlighter. On light makeup days, I'll use this instead of CC cream, and on full makeup days, I use Flawless Filter over my CC cream for a little extra glow all around. Gives a beautiful, airbrushed "filtered" makeup look. I use shades 2 and 3.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water - Doubles as a primer or a setting spray! Light, fresh, and helps to set the base of my makeup for all-day wear.

NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder - I like to apply this with a damp beauty blender to areas prone to 'stickiness', like under eyes and chin. Great as an all-over setting powder too!

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder - Another favorite!  This also comes in a few different shades depending on if you want a touch of bronze as you set your makeup.

Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze - Don't be intimidated by a cream bronzer! I tried one this year for the first time and haven't looked back. This product can be used for bronzing or contouring, and glides on like butter. I use shade Bondi Bae.

NARS Bronzer Powder - If you're looking for a more traditional bronzer, NARS bronzer in shade Casino has been a staple in my makeup bag for over 10 years.

Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze - Nudestix cream blush is another favorite (especially for Summer). Favorite shades are Beach Babe & Sweet Peach Peony for a natural, flushed look.

NARS The Multiple - Another great cream blush option that I've used for years. I use shade Orgasm.

Glossier Cloud Paint - One of my all-time favorite blushes! Creates this beautiful, flushed-from-within look that's so natural. I use shade Beam.

Iconic London Sheer Cream Blush - Very similar to the Glossier but a little bit of a more liquid-y formula. I love the shade Berry Boom.

Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick - Swipe and go! Glides on smoothly and leaves a super-pigmented beautiful color. I use shade Champagne Flash.

Iconic London Illuminator - If you're looking for a hyper-pigmented blinding highlight that really pops, this is it. I use shade Original.

Jouer Powder Highlighter - This was a newer brand for me, but I was instantly blown away by the pigment (I liked this 10x better than the Chanel highlighter everyone raves about!). I use shade Citrine.

Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color - When it comes to eyeshadows and liners, I keep it simple. I love warmer, nude tones and this is a great option if you want a little color around the eyes without doing a full shadow look. I use shade Sunrise Star (there are SO many other great ones to choose from too!).

Too Face Born This Way Eyeshadow Palette - My top eyeshadow palette recommendation for warm neutrals! Has everything you need in both shimmer and matte shades.

Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette - Another favorite neutral palette! This one has more browns than pinks compared to Born This Way.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz - I've been using this brow pencil for so many years! Shade Medium Brown is perfect for my dark brows.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel - If you're looking to set your brows so they stay in place all day, this my top rec!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner - Another product that's been in my makeup bag forever. I love the felt tip, which makes for a perfect cat eye application. Tip: if doing a cat eye, dip your ring finger in your setting powder and dab over your liner once dried. If needed, apply a second coat on top of the setting powder to re-darken the black. This will help is truly stay all day!

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara - I'm currently using Lashify, which takes care of mascara for me (see my IGTV for more!), but this was my go-to mascara.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara - Another favorite for volume and separation!

Lime Crime Faux Freckle Pen - I have so many freckles that get covered by the rest of my makeup. I like to bring them back out in the Summer with this pen! I find this mirrors my natural freckles most accurately. I use shade Amber.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner - I don't often use liner but when I'm doing a full makeup look, I love Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk shade.

Other neutral lipsticks I love: Tarte Lippie Lingerie (Exposed or Whisper), Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink (Seductress), Tarte Color Splash (Rum Punch), MAC Matte Lipstick (Velvet Teddy)

And of course, couldn't live without by Beauty Blenders! I use these to apply just about every step of my makeup routine. Highly recommend using the original brand versus a cheaper alternative. See a video on how to clean and disinfect your beauty blender here!
