I have compiled a list with a few of my favorite makeup products I can’t seem to live without right now! These products can help your makeup wear longer, sparkle more and simplify your routine.
SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMER WATER
WHAT DOES IT DO? This product is packaged in a spray bottle! It is great as a primer and can be spritzed on your face before applying your makeup. And it is also ideal for setting your makeup when you complete your look!
WHERE TO GET IT: Both Ulta and Sephora carry the Smashbox Brand. And if you purchase the bottle with the BCA Pink Ribbon, $5 of your purchase will go towards Estee Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign.
STILA MAGNIFICENT METALS GLITTER & GLOW LIQUID EYESHADOW
WHAT DOES IT DO? It is a very lightweight liquid shadow that glides on smooth and dries with a maximum sparkle! It’s the best way to rock glitter with minimal fall out. It leaves a beautiful luster and shimmery finish. And they come in a wide range of colors!
WHERE TO GET IT: You can find these at your local Sephora or on Stilacosmetics.com
MAC EYEBROWS BROW PENCIL
WHAT DOES IT DO? This is a super skinny, twist up eyebrow pencil that is versatile and longwearing. Since the lead is so skinny, you can fill in your brows wherever it’s needed or you can easily create a defined shape, arch or point. This will make brow application much quicker and easier for those who want something low maintenance.
WHERE TO GET IT: MAC Cosmetics
SUPERGOOP! LIP BALM BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30
WHAT DOES IT DO? This lip balm hydrates with shea butter and protects the lips from UV rays with multiple sunscreen ingredients. This is a great lip balm all year round, but especially nice to have on hand while in the summer sun. If you specifically buy the AcaiFusion lip balm by Supergoop!, it’ll have a pink tint to it and includes the fruit of the acai palm in the ingredients.
WHERE TO GET IT: Sephora
NEUTROGENA MAKEUP REMOVER CLEANSING TOWELETTES
WHAT DOES IT DO? Every night be sure to remove your makeup and follow it up with a skincare routine that works for you. This product removes all traces of dirt, oil, makeup and even waterproof mascara! These wipes are a great price and even offer a fragrance-free version for those with more sensitive skin.
WHERE TO GET IT: Walmart or Target
