holy grail makeup products

I've never been a girl that is obsessed with makeup, but I've found a few products that I swear by. I have my 13-year-old sister to thank for some of these recommendations and also the fashion/beauty world in general. 

PRIMER: Obsessed with my friend Lauren Gore’s new brand with Marianna Hewitt. The Jet Lag Mask is everything you’ve heard about it and more. It makes you glow and feel good. I put it on in the mornings as a primer and sometimes just with some mascara (and maybe minimal makeup) and my skin stays glowy all day! You have to try. 

FOUNDATION: I use a couple depending on my mood, day, season, etc. My go-to right now is Bare Minerals SPF Foundation because it's super light and easy to throw on for a little something. I also love NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick for full coverage and Born This Way from Too Faced.

COVERUP: Thank goodness for coverup, am i rite??!! My favorites include the Benefit Hydrating Concealer, and the Cover FX Cream Concealer (fit for your skin color!) 

CONTOUR: Benefit Hoola Cream-To-Powder Contour Stick is DA BOMB. Seriously it's amazing and I'm never going back. 

BRONZER: Bronzed beauties, I love NARS Bronzer in Laguna, and Cover FX Bronzer in Sunset (so beauty and pretty)and I like to switch it up. The Kristofer Buckle Exposure Matter Warming Powder is beyond too. So many choices! 

BLUSH: I love a good MAC blush, but have also been loving the MILK Lip + Cheek in Dusty Rose and also the Benefit GALifornia Blush my sister turned me on to. We all need a little extra pink in our lives. Also obsessed with this Kristofer Buckle Cream and Powder Blush Duo for extra rosiness.

HIGHLIGHTER: I'm the highlighting queen. I swear, it's my favorite thing to use. I love the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, and also the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops for MAJOR glow, literally insane. My everyday highlight is the Milk Highlighter in Lit (I put it on my eyelids too) which I'm literally always asked which I have one. Ladies, you need all 3. 

MASCARA: The Benefit mascara is my jam right now, but I'm looking for a new one too! Send over some of your favorites please and thank you.

LIPS: Girls, I love lips the best and they might be my favorite feature on my face. Treat them well! My must-haves are from Sara Happ, literally the entire collection is amazing. Also, the Kristofer Buckle Cashmere Slip Duo too. I mean I could talk about lip color for a week so I'm going to stop there. 

SCENT: My mom gave me the Peony & Blush Suede by Jo Malone scent for Christmas and it smells so pretty. Everyone needs their signature scent! I also love Elizabeth and James Black Nirvana (get the rollerball) and The Sage Lifestyle roll-on oils. Gotta switch it up!

 

What are some of your favorites? I'm always looking for good recommendations!
