Every Day Makeup Essentials

Makeup is a game changer. I wake up looking like a zombie and slap some of this stuff on my face and BAM! I’m human again. I may be exaggerating a bit here, but it definitely does work wonders. Out of all the amazing makeup products, there are in the world, these are what I like to use…

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer

If I don’t wear primer, my makeup doesn’t even last an hour. Especially for my eyes. The LORAC eye primer I have is in a small bottle that for some reason always goes missing. So I’m forced to go without wearing it some days and on those days my eye makeup just slowly disappears and it looks like I was never wearing any to begin with…gotta love primers!

IT COSMETICS bye bye undereye
NYX High Definition Photo Concealer Wand

I alternate between both of these concealers. These two are my favorites, they work really well to hide my dark under circles. I usually use whichever one I find first while digging through my makeup bag.

IT COSMETICS Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50

I’ve heard about this brand IT COSMETICS years ago from former YouTuber, Emily June, but never tried it until recently and I’m so glad that I did! This brand has some of the best face makeup out there. It lasts all day, feels light, and is full coverage.

Bronzer, Blush, Highlighter
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer
Benefit Dandelion Brightening Baby Pink Blush
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal

These three products work together so beautifully! Making my skin look absolutely perfect!

Eye Shadow
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
LORAC PRO Palette 3

My go to eye makeup is a shimmery nude on the lid, a matte taupe in my crease and a darker brown on the outer corner. Simple, but always cute!


Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you haven’t tried this mascara, go to your local drugstore or Ulta and buy it! You must, must, MUST try it. It works wonders! I don’t have long eyelashes at all, but you would never guess that when I have this on. There are other mascaras that work just as well as this one like the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, but the price makes the biggest difference. This is and will probably always be my favorite mascara.

Beauty Tools
Beauty Blender
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
Sally Hansen Eyelash Curler

I use all of these tools to make sure my makeup is blended well and looks natural.

Those are my everyday makeup essentials, I don’t usually wear eyeliner because I am awful at applying it haha, nor do I wear lipstick because I kiss my boyfriend way too much. Just being honest! 🙂 Let me know what your favorite makeup product is out of your whole routine. My favorite would have to be the Maybelline Mascara, but the product I couldn’t go without would definitely be the concealer. My undereye circles are crazy dark! Must cover that up.

    My NYX concealer is my absolute favorite. It has a great creamy texture and covers my dark marks. Also, my smashbox primer is actually good at covering so I don’t use as much foundation. I love it.

    Love the naked palette too, my fave!

    • Tricia June 18, 2017 / 8:56 pm

      Yes it’s a great palette! My favorite & most used color from that palette is bootycall…but they don’t make that one individually lol so I’ll be repurchasing this palette until they do!

    I’m no good with make up. I feel like there’s too many steps! But I love seeing what other women do. I’m lucky if I put on foundation and mascara!

    • Tricia June 19, 2017 / 1:43 pm

      I used to feel the same way too, but then I became obsessed with beauty tutorials and YouTube and now I love it!!

  7. Trice June 18, 2017 / 8:43 pm

    Gotta love makeup!!!

    • Tricia June 18, 2017 / 8:57 pm

      So much fun to play with!

  8. Adrina June 19, 2017 / 1:05 pm

    Yeah I almost never leave the house without some (tiny bit) makeup! lol. Good to know some more people like me exist. My favorite product lately is a Mascara from Mac that I get free when I have them do my makeup session. It’s pretty cool that they give you a full sized mascara for free. It’s called “IN EXTREME DIMENSION 3D BLACK LASH”. Other than that, my 1st favorite mascara is by Loreal and it’s called “Voluminous”.

    • Tricia June 19, 2017 / 1:42 pm

      That is real cool that they give you a free mascara! I’m gonna have to go to Mac and try that one out! I love finding new beauty products

    I can’t even do my make-up without my Smashbox primer, so I know what you mean about it being an absolute necessity. The Maybelline mascara is also one of my favorites! I actually use my Better than Sex mascara for more formal events and use the Maybelline one to produce the same effect, but for more casual events.

    I don’t wear makeup, but I’m giving this list to a friend of mine as it’s such a helpful run down of what to use xx

  11. Morgan June 20, 2017 / 12:36 am

    You’re makeup came out lovely! I like how it’s subtle but still stands out.

    • Tricia June 20, 2017 / 8:37 am

      Thanks so much 😄
