Hey everyone! So today I thought I would share with you guys my holy grail, all time favorite makeup products! These are products I cannot live without. These are my opinions on these products so some might not work for you and your skin type.
I have a new makeup look coming for you guys next! If you want to find out what my holy grail products are keep on reading!
➝Smashbox Photo finish primer in the original⋮I found this primer a long time ago and it never fails me and always leaves my skin looking great and helps it last all day long! I’ve also used the pore filler and the hydrating primers, along with a few others and to me they are the best!
➝Smashbox Photo Finish 24-Hour eye Primer⋮No matter how many different eye primers I go through, I always come back to this one. It doesn’t crease or get patchy. I love using this on myself as well as my clients! If you haven’t tried this one yet you definitely need to, you will love it!
➝I don’t think I personally have a holy grail that I always go back to. My skin is very sensitive as well as more on the dry side. It used to be more oily so some of my old favorites don’t work as well for me now. But some of my old favorites include Estee Lauder double Wear, Bobbi Brown (A few different ones), and the Cover Girl 3 in 1.
➝Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder⋮Let’s be honest who hasn’t tried this product?? I love this product so much, I have one in my kit as well and it never fails me! Before I had a set skin care routine, or even really understood skin care I had issues with this and I always thought it was the powder. Now that I have a good skin care routine I love it!
➝Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light⋮OMG I have nothing to say but good things about this product! This was one of the first makeup products I owned. I’ve tried many other bronzer and some fan faves, but for me nothing compares to this one. I love this color and how its smooth and always looks perfect on my skin! (Stone Street is my second favorite).
➝Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blushing Bride and Glisten⋮ These are by far my favorite blushes! I love using Blushing Bride on a lot of my clients, because in my opinion it looks beautiful on everyone! Glisten is the first color I had, and I’ve gone through so many of them. Hopefully one day I can have the whole collection!
➝The Balms Mary Lou Manizer⋮Another cult favorite! If you have not tried this you definitely need to!! The color is absolution stunning, not to crazy and definitely not dull. I’ve gone through a few of these since I discovered it. I love they way it pops when you tilt your head and it catches the light!
➝Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder⋮I personally use the color soft brown and sometimes in the winter medium brown if my hair is a bit darker. I do have the pro palette with all the colors in my kit and I can’t tell you how much I love this! It never fails and if my client wants a more bold brow I can wet my brush and it makes it perfect!
➝Violet Voss Pro Eyeshadow Palette in Holy Grail⋮I bought this the day it came out, while I was in San Fran waiting for my flight back to Chicago. This palette is AMAZING!! I love the names, they are so cute! And the colors..OMG totally right up my alley! They are so blendable and smooth. I can’t say enough positive things about this palette. It’s definitely a staple in my life and everyone should try it out!
➝BH Cosmetics Palettes⋮I can’t tell you one palette specifically, because I love them all! I found BH about 5-6 years ago when I was in 7th-8th grade. Since then I have purchased so much of their products and not just eyeshadows. The 120 2nd edition, naturals, and eyes of the 60s are some of my faves! Definitely go check them out if you haven’t already!
➝Urban decay X Gwen Stefani Palette⋮I have used this palette so much! I love UD palettes and this is my favorite out of all of them. the colors in here are so beautiful and blendable. The black shade in here is so perfect, definitely my favorite black eyeshadow!
➝Smashbox Eyeshadow Palettes⋮I have 3 palettes and I love them all. They are definitely my favorite shadows if I’m going for a less intense look. I feel like they aren’t as pigmented as some of the others I’ve listed here, but sometimes I like that more natural look, but still with color!
➝Lucas’ Papaw Ointment⋮I discovered this product a few years back, and it has been my favorite lip balm since then! I could not live without this product in my life, and I’m not sure how I did before. If my lips are chapped or sunburnt (sadly this happens to me a lot in summer no matter what I do to prevent it) It heals them so quickly!
➝EOS Lip Balm⋮Another cult favorite! I have so many of these all over my house, in my purses, and in my drawers. Like Lucas’ Lip Balm this also heals my lips, just not as fast. But I couldn’t live without this product either! They all smell amazing and the egg packaging is so cute!
➝Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lip in Cool Girl and Queen B⋮OMG these really do stay on all day and they are hydrating! This product has a no-sting lip filler, which is amazing and helps your lips look plump all day long. It is also infused with Avocado Oil and Vitamin E to help your lips stay hydrated! I’ve never had a problem with this liquid lip!
➝Bobbi Brown Lip Glosses⋮These were the first high end lips glosses I ever owned. I personally love the way the smell, and the way they go on. I also like the applicators! They are so easy to use and the colors are just beautiful! I have so many to just choose one or even two favorites. You should check these out if you haven’t yet!
➝Paul & Joe Lipstick in 200 + Revlon Lip Gloss in 220⋮This is my favorite lipstick/lipgloss combo! I wear this all the time! It’s my favorite nude lipstick. The lipstick has a Satin finish and glides on beautifully. I had a similar lip combo done for my cousins wedding a few years ago, that’s why I love pairing this lipstick with a purple lip gloss. The purple gloss is more sheer than opaque, which makes this beautiful color!
