It wouldn’t be inaccurate to call me a beauty product fanatic. I love testing out the latest products, from lipsticks to liners. But within my vast arsenal of cosmetics, I have a few key products that I use everyday and keep neatly tucked inside my makeup bag for easy access. I know I’m always interested in hearing what those “Top 10” favorite products are for other women, so today I thought I’d share my personal picks with all of you. Check them out below…
1. Beauty Counter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage, $38
This is my everyday tinted moisturizer. It’s lightweight, so I still go back and touch up my complexion with concealer, but I love how easily it blends. I’m a big fan of the Beauty Counter brand because it uses only the safest ingredients and is free from toxins and scary chemicals.
2. Sensai Cellular Performance Cream Foundation
This is my go-to foundation for times when I am going to be in front of the camera or just need a little more coverage than my tinted moisturizer can provide. It leaves my skin looking flawless. (P.S. Click here for my Beauty Beginners guide to choosing and applying foundation!)
3. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, $29
Every girl needs a good concealer and this NARS pick is my favorite. I use it to cover up fine lines, dark spots, under eye circles, and imperfections. It’s incredibly moisturizing and never cakey.
4. mark. What A Line Max Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, $12
I have been using this liquid liner for years. It’s such a staple in my makeup bag. The applicator is easy to use and it doesn’t smudge. The price is right too!
5. Maybelline New York Full ‘N Soft Mascara, $5.60
While some beauty products are worth investing in, this drugstore mascara lengthens lashes as well as any more expensive brand. Just like the name says, it leaves my lashes looking soft and full without any clumps.
6. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil, $24
I love these long-lasting, matte lip colors from Bite Beauty. I use the shade ‘Quince’ most often, but I have several different ones in my makeup bag.
7. Tarte Cheek Stain, $30
I love this product for giving my cheeks a dewy spring radiance. It’s very natural looking and easy to blend. I switch to the brand’s powder blush (Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush) in the winter when I want more of a matte look instead.
8. Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder
Chanel actually discontinued this bronzer and I don’t know what I am going to do when my current compact runs out! I love this bronzer’s illuminating, oil-free formula. I use it for contouring and it gives my skin a sun-kissed glow. If anyone has a recommendation for a similar bronzer, please let me know!
9. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, $32
I use this brow pencil every day to fill in my brows and make them look uniform. Not only is the formula amazing (it’s feels like part pencil, part powder, part wax), but it also comes with a built-in brush.
10. Eyeko London Brow Gel, $24
Since I have fuller brows, I depend on this brow gel to keep unruly hairs in place. It goes on wet, which makes styling easy, and dries to a natural finish.
