I’ve decided that to make Fridays a little more fantastic, I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite things each week. 5 things to be exact. I love reading what tried and true products others are using so hopefully this is somewhat helpful as well! Today I’m sharing 5 of my very favorite makeup essentials. These are products that I use every single day. Most of them are drug store brands and I would pick them over high end products any day!
1.Urban Decay Primer Potion– Now while this may seem to be on the more pricey side, it’s WELL worth your money. I’ve had my tube for over a year and I still have about a third of it left. A little goes a long way! This eyeshadow primer is the bee’s knees and keeps my eyeshadow in place all day.
2.Garnier BB Cream-Out of all the BB creams I’ve tried, I always end up going back to this one. I’ve been buying this guy for years! Most days I use it in place of my foundation, but it still gives me amazing coverage.I feel like it’s that perfect combination of coverage, yet barely there/natural face feel. I just absolutely LOVE the finish. And you can’t beat the price. The tube is huge and lasts me a good 4-5 months.I get the Combination to Oily tube in Light/Medium. My ONLY complaint is that in the winter it’s a little dark for my skin tone so I usually have to mix a lighter foundation with it to get the right shade. That being said, I still love it so much!
3.Almay Liquid Eyeliner– Another one I’ve been buying for years. I was always scared of liquid eyeliner until I risked trying this one. Now I can’t go back! The little wand thingy is super easy to use and it doesn’t smudge or get in the crease of my eyelid. And it’s hypoallergenic so it won’t irritate your eyes! I get it in brown and love it with all my heart.
4.Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush-I love these blushes for a variety of reasons. They look beautiful on the skin, last all day, and come in a huge variety of colors. I go back and forth between Rose Petal and Fresh Pink.
5.Maybelline Lash Sensational-This mascara is fairly new in my routine. I found it about a year ago and have continued to buy it month after month. It gives my lashes the full, voluminous effect that I want in one or two coats. I love how it builds and how halfway through the day I don’t feel like I have to reapply it like so many other mascaras. This ones a winner people.
