NEWER TO MY ROUTINE RECENTLY SEEN ON IG STORIES
ItCosmetics Ombré Radiance Bronzer - Anti-aging, waterproof formula that bronzes with a subtle highlight. Love it especially for Winter when my skin is on the fairer side.
Colourpop Nude Mood Eyeshadow Palette - Holy pigment! Sooo blown away by Colourpop shadows (especially for the price!). This is a great everyday palette.
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!
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.
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!
