My Everyday Makeup

My everyday makeup - the essentials that I use every single day

This is my everyday makeup when I’m being somewhat minimal. (I know, I’m super high maintenance; more is more!) Some of these are newer finds, but a lot of these items are my all time favorites that I will continue to repurchase forever. 

Everyday Makeup



One // Foundation

I used to be obsessed with this foundation, then strayed for a while to try new things. I’m back on the bandwagon, though; I think this is the perfect balance between matte and dewy.

Two // Concealer

This is the BEST concealer!! (I also wrote about it here) It’s SO creamy, thick, and blendable, and so. freaking. cheap.

Three // Powder

This is widely agreed upon to be the best loose powder from the drugstore. If you can get past the old-ladyish smell (I kind of like it) it’s a really great one, although somewhat difficult to find in stores.

Four // Eye Primer

I will never, ever be without this, as I explained here. If you’re going to wear eyeshadow, you need this.

Five // Eye Shadow

I have several palettes, and I don’t think I could choose a favorite. I showed the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette here, since it’s so pretty and pink!

Six // Eyelash Primer

This is a new discovery of mine that is changing my eyelash game SO much. It tends to make your lashes look a little bit clumpy, but if you pair it with the right mascara it makes your lashes look HUGE. I love it, I’ll definitely repurchase it when I run out. It’s kind of a high maintenance extra step, but it makes such a big difference. It’s worth the extra minute it takes to apply!

Seven // Mascara

I’ve been in love with Covergirl’s Super Sizer mascara for so long, but I bought this one to go with the eyelash primer. It’s less clumpy than the Super Sizer; it claims to make your lashes really volumized while still feeling soft. That big, fluffy lash look is my absolute favorite; this combined with the primer makes me look like a wide-eyed doe. Love.

Eight // Eyebrow Pencil

I’ve tried every Anastasia Brow Wiz dupe under the sun, and this one is my favorite. In my opinion, it’s just as good as the Anastasia, comes in a great selection of colors, and is half the price!

Nine // Contour

I smashed my NYX blush in “taupe” a few months ago and started using this instead, and I actually like it even better even though it’s a lot less gray-toned (so less like a natural shadow). I never ever go a day without contouring, because my head kind of looks like a hard boiled egg without it.

Ten // Blush

I’m currently loving Benefit “Dallas” blush, but I have a really great selection of some of their best shades in the limited edition palette that I have. I’ve linked a similar one bel0w that’s available now; always look out for these kinds of palettes during the holidays, you can get some really great deals!

Eleven // Highlighter

In the past year, highlighter has become my absolute favorite makeup item. I LOVE the Urban Decay highlighter in “sin” so, so much. If you buy one this from this post, get this!

Twelve // Lipstick

This is the thing that changes most from day to day depending on my mood. Lately, I’m completely in love with Maybelline “Blushing Pout,” which is a gorgeous matte pinky nude color. (I’m wearing it in these photos!)
