My Makeup Favorites

I'm definitely no beauty expert but I thought I'd share some of my tried and true beauty favorites. I've been using all of these products for at least a year and some for several years. I love light and fresh colors for my blush and gloss and products that have a long-lasting effect. At the end of a long school day, I still want to look put together!

1. Makeup Forever Mat Velvet+ Foundation //  This is my favorite foundation EVER. It is perfect for oily skin. I have combination skin and it works great for that, too. It doesn't dry me out and I love the matte feel and look. The coverage is great and I love how well my blush/bronzer look over it. It is a little pricey but lasts me a long time. I use No. 30. {I use this brush to apply and it is definitely worth the money}

2. NYX Lip Gloss //  I discovered this brand when Ulta stores popped up in my area a few years ago. I've tried a few of their products, but this is my favorite. The gloss comes in great colors and isn't sticky at all. My favorite is Nude Pink.

3. Bobbi Brown Blush //  My favorite is the Pale Pink shade pictured above. It has the perfect amount of pigment and lasts all day.

4. NYX Full Coverage Concealer //  I use the 'light' shade. Love this for covering dark circles. You can't beat the price either!

5. Urban Decay 24/7 Liner // Y'all this stuff lasts. I was sick of my eyeliner coming off and being completely gone after work. I've been using these for about three years and love them. I use the black shade Zero and the brown is Bourbon. They last a long time too so I don't mind spending a little more for them vs. a drugstore brand.

6. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette // I'm on my second one because I loved and used up the first one I bought! The colors are perfect for everyday and it is small enough to travel with unlike many other palettes.


I just purchased a few new beauty products from Nordstrom this past week with a few gift cards I had. The NARS Laguna bronzer {I've been reading rav reviews of this for years} and the NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight. I'll let you know what I think after I use them for a bit! What are your favorite beauty products? Let me know in the comments!
