Six Makeup Products I Use Every Day

And now to mix it up with a post called, “6 Makeup Products I Use Every Day.”

*I use the term “every day” lightly here, as some days I’m lazy and don’t put on anything at all. But when I do, it’s always one of these items.

1. bareMinerals powder foundation.
Why oh why did it take me so long to discover how wonderful a good powder foundation can be? It goes on easier, blends better, and looks so much more natural than liquid (for me.) *Because I was terrible at putting on liquid correctly. Also liquid gave me awful breakouts. I’ve been using this for about four months now and love it.

2. Laura Mercier eyebrow pencil.
Laura is a miracle worker with makeup. (Yes, she and I are on a first-name basis.) At least we are for this post. I love all of her products, but this eyebrow pencil is one of my favorites. I learned how to give myself eyebrows in 2015 and I feel like this was HUGE turning point in my life. How did I live before? HOW?

3. Chanel eyeliner. 
I never know how to do eyeliner or what color to wear. Am I wearing it too thick? Too thin? Too dark? Someone tell me. Luckily, this Chanel eye pencil goes on soft and easy, and I chose the medium brown color for a good “day time look.” Does that sound like something a makeup blogger would say? Good.

4. Hypnose mascara.
This has been my go-to mascara for about ten years now. I stray from it every once awhile but always end up back where I started. It makes lashes look longer and doesn’t clump. However, I always love to try something new so if you have a good mascara you love, I’m all ears!

5. Nars bronzer.
Pretty sure I’ve mentioned a time or two how much I love bronzer… this is one of the best I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot.) It gives a nice glow without being too shiny or greasy looking.

6. Smashbox BB Cream.
My daily moisturizer + SPF. Gives a nice tint to my skin without looking cakey, protects my skin from the sun, and  helps with anti-aging. Everything a gal in her late 20s needs…

What are you go-tos? I’m always looking for a good blush, eye color palette, and like I said above, a new mascara!

    I love Nars Blush! If you like their bronzer, you would like their blush I bet! Have you heard of SeneGence products? They are my favorite!

    I learned the whole brow thing not that long ago, too, and it makes such a big difference! Now I kind want to get them microbladed…

    I just started using that mascara coincidentally! But I use it with a mascara primer (I think Lancôme?) and to me it makes a HUGE difference! I just started getting into wearing makeup every day this year and like that I'm finding how to pull of natural but also lets me feel more confident 🙂

    I've tried so many mascaras and I always go back to my tried and true Maybelline Falsies – in the black tube. I never get as many compliments as when I wear the Maybelline!

    yes to powder foundation! I never got the hang of liquid and I always felt like it was way too much for me. I use NARS blush and love it!

      Interesting, I know, some women can't live without powder, others without liquid. Interesting debate 🙂

    I swear by "Yes They're Real" Benefit mascara. It makes my lashes plump, makes my eyes pop and doesn't melt away in Hawaiian heat. Though I'm not sure that's an issue in Chicago quite yet LOL!

    I rarely wear makeup, but I bought myself a few new things for Christmas. My current obsessions are a Sephora blush palette and eye shadow palette. The blush is 6 shades in 3 shimmer/matte coordinating sections. I love me some shimmer, so I just swipe my blush brush across the whole section to apply it, but if you don't like shimmer, it's hard to swipe just the matte.

    Also I bought 3 color-changing lipsticks from e.l.f. I'm obsessed with all of them. Even the purple and the orange which I thought would look weird change to a purply-pink and a coralish-pink on me.

    I loved seeing what makeup products you use and will have to look into trying some! I personally love the L'Oréal voluminous carbon black mascara and the L'Oréal telescopic carbon black mascara. Both are great but one gives more volume and one gives more length. Thanks for the great recommendations girl! Love your blog!!

    I tried Bare Minerals powder but felt like it did nothing to cover my face. It can't hide the ugly! Hahaha
