Over the years I’ve tried a countless amount of beauty products in order to find the perfect products for me. Naturally I’ve become a makeup hoarder but luckily I have compiled a go to list of favorites that my daily makeup routine could not live without. I use these products almost everyday and consider them my holy grail products. These products have definitely stood out to me throughout the years and are very well known products. If you’re looking for something new and highly rated, I definitely recommend browsing through my list and experimenting with a new product.
1.) Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
After a long and tiring day, removing my makeup is necessary before cleansing my face. Even though it’s easy to be lazy with your night routine, removing all your makeup before bed is vital because it helps prevent clogged pores, breakouts and removes makeup particles from your face. These Neutrogena makeup remover wipes gently remove stubborn makeup without leaving any residue.
2.) It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+
This is one of my favorite foundation which saves my sensitive skin from looking “cakey”. This foundation will enhance your natural radiance and give you a dewy glow. The hydrating serum is one of the main ingredients which will keep your skin hydrated and not flaky. Since this foundation or CC cream is so light weight, you can use it as day moisturizer and sunscreen without anything else.
3.) Bare Minerals Bareskin Perfecting Veil
This BareMinerals Perfecting Veil is the light weight powder that answers all your makeup finishing and setting needs. It has light reflecting optics which helps keep all your makeup together, matte and natural. I love how applying this powder after I’ve finished my makeup or throughout the day for a touch up really removes oil and makes your makeup look creaseless.
4.) Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
I found the best treatment of my dry lips. The lip balm keeps my lips moisturized without giving the look of a thick uncomfortable lipstick. This tinted lip balm gives a glossy touch to your lips with all immense benefits of bee wax. The fact that this lip balm is tinted is my favorite aspect since it’s quick, easy, and hydrating for my lips.
5.) Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil
Witness a beautiful change in your face by filling the area of your brows where hair is sparse by creating hair like strokes with the Anastasia brow wiz. This eyebrow pencil comes in a variety of shades and has a long lasting formula. I especially love the quality of the eyebrow brush attached since it’s small and precise.
6.) Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
I can’t imagine a day without my eyeliner. This eyeliner in pen form is easy to use an apply. It does a great job of staying on all day even when it’s super hot and humid. Even though this eyeliner is more expensive than most, I’ve realized that it last so much longer than other eyeliner’s I’ve purchased. If you’re on the lookout for a smudge proof eyeliner, I highly recommend trying this, you won’t regret it.
7.) Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4 in 1 Mascara
This 4 in 1 mascara acts like a magic wand for my lashes and distinguishes them. This Tarte mascara really lengthens my eyelashes and makes them less clumpy. I love this formula and especially that a little goes a long way.
8.) Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Primer is a necessary part of my makeup routine before applying eyeshadow and eyeliner. This primer potion helps my eye makeup last all day. Without this stuff, I would definitely have eyeshadow everywhere.
9.) Benefit The Porefessional Face Primer
My favorite attribute of this primer is that it’s so lightweight and easy to apply. The oil-free formula helps make my makeup last longer and stay put. It also quickly minimizes the appearance of open pores and smoothens any imperfections.
10.) Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb and Rosewater
This facial spray gently refreshes my face and enhances the overall hydration of my skin. Rosewater has anti-inflammatory benefits and it soothes the skin gently. The regular use of the spray can help improve your breakouts due to the presence of antioxidants and antibacterial properties.
