5 Makeup Products You Can’t Live Without!

L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara

This mascara has been my favorite for years!  I love how intensely pigmented and thick the formula is.  It makes my lashes look super thick and dark with just one coat.  A tip to applying:  scrape off the excess on the edge of the tube so it doesn’t clump.

Price:  $6.00

Where to Buy:   Amazon,  eBay , Most drugstores

NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss – “Beige”

If you want glossy lips without the sticky feeling, these NYX ones are amazing!  I’ve been using for years now, and love the wide range of colors they sell.  My favorite color is “Beige” (not sure why they call it that as it’s a medium pink color- weird. )  These are the only lipglosses I’ve found that don’t cost a fortune and don’t feel tacky.

Price:  $5.59

Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner

This is another product I’ve been using for years as I love how creamy these eyeliners are!  Plus Urban Decay put out a wide range of colors- everything from pink  to teal to intense black.  The only rival brand for this creamy formula is the Milani Liquif’eye, but there’s just 5 colors.  I use this 24/7 one almost everyday…

Neutrogena Healthy Skin and Revlon ColorStay Foundation

Yes, yes, I know I brag about these foundations all the time.  But if I love them, why not share with everyone else? :)   If you want a matte finish formula with full coverage, then try the Revlon Colorstay.  If you want a medium coverage but dewy finish, try the Neutrogena Healthy Skin.   Most of the time I mix these two for the perfect satin finish.

Price:  $8-12

Beauty Blender

This by far is the best makeup invention in years.   I know it seems like a simple product, but the size, shape, and texture of it  makes for a perfect foundation application every time!  The soft sponge expands when wet to provide a soft almost airbrushed look to the skin, while the pointed tip allows you to blend under the eyes and around the nose.   I honestly have about 7 of these as I use them everyday for my foundation as well as blending my blush.
