Happy Friday everyone! How has your week been? It’s been super busy here with my family in town but I am not complaining! Yesterday, we drove down to St. Augustine for the day and went to the alligator farm. Check out my Instagram stories for pictures – it was insane the amount of alligators that were there! It’s been raining here a good bit this week so it’s making it a little impossible for outfit pictures. Fingers crossed next week is better! So let’s change it up a little bit and talk makeup today!
While I am not a makeup artist or an expert on makeup by any means, these are 6 of my go-to makeup products that I use and cannot live without. I have been using all of these for quite a while now and 2 of them for the last 4 years. They are my absolute must have to complete even an easy and effortless makeup application. I use them every single time! I know the big thing right now are natural products without all the harmful ingredients, and while I have switched over my skincare (obsessed with Beautycounter) my makeup is something I have not changed yet. So let’s get to it!
I have been using this Laura Mercier Powder for the last 4 years, I would guess. It’s my little secret that I love telling people about! I have wrinkles under my eyes and if I don’t apply this, my concealer will clump in my creases. I apply this on top of my concealer and it keeps my concealer in place.
This Trish McEvoy Eye Base is another product I have been using for a few years. I have tried eyeshadow primers in the past and none of them work as good as this one. It dries very quickly so you have to apply and then rub it in. It doesn’t leave a caked on look like most eyeshadow primers I have tried. Most of the time, I don’t even apply eyeshadow because I like the color that this is on my eyelids.
I love this Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue! I use it on days when I am not really doing much but want to look a little put together. It has a very light coverage and has SPF 30, which is always a win!
I started using this Tarte concealer at the beginning of this year and it is a game changer! After my favorite concealer was discontinued, I had been trying so many different concealers until I came across this one and I am never turning back! It lasts all day and the coverage is amazing compared to anything else I have tried. It goes on pretty thick, heavy and light in color but it’s almost as if I soaks into your skin with a matte finish and magically transforms to the color you want it to be. Highly recommend!
Once you try this foundation with the Tarte concealer, you will never want to try anything else again. If you are looking for more of a fuller coverage, I recommend trying this. It goes on so smoothly and lasts all day even in the heat! I absolutely love this stuff!
I have been using this mascara for years! I love wearing a lot of mascara and can’t really go without it. I know there are sooo many other mascaras out there and I am open to trying new ones for sure. I have been curious about this one, this one and this one.
I am always open to hearing about new products to try! If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them!
