Makeup Must Haves

I am by no means a professional makeup artist, and I'm also working on a budget (by that I mean Starbucks lattes takes up a good amount of my money), but I've always been able to find products that fit my life and my skincare needs. These products are a mix of every day things and my holy grails.

Maybelline Dream Pure BB® Cream

Finding a foundation that's not too heavy and cakey or doesn't make my skin angry and breakout prone was a struggle until I found little little baby!

Q-tips® Precision Tips™
Q-tips® Precision Tips™

MUST have for little mistakes! The precision tips make all the difference in fixing a little mistake and having to restart your makeup altogether.

Maybelline EyeStudio® Master Precise® Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline EyeStudio® Master Precise® Liquid Eyeliner

The only liquid liner I will ever use. This stuff lasts all day and it's SO easy to apply. Goes on smoothly and evenly and stays put!

Ardell Flare Individual Lash
Ardell Flare Individual Lash

I LOVE THESE. I need a more natural look for work but some days I need a little extra fullness to give me that doe eyed look that I live for. A little lash glue on the back of your hand, dip the lash in, and apply with tweezers.

e.l.f. Studio Baked Highlighter

Beautiful pigment for an everyday highlight. I love the glow that MAC and Colourpop provide with their highlighter, but I don't have to worry about having too heavy of a hand with this one.

NYX Matte Bronzer

So I'm using the lightest shade of this bronzer, not the medium, but I still had to include it in my must haves list. Matte and gorgeous, it's definitely comparable to a lot of higher end brands for a fraction of the price.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

This palette is a favorite among beauty bloggers, and it's no wonder. I asked my boyfriend for it for Christmas and he came through. BEAUTIFUL, blendable, flattering, and highly pigmented.

Maybelline Great Lash® BIG® Washable Mascara
Maybelline Great Lash® BIG® Washable Mascara

Classic product with a bit bigger brush for more lash volume. Still my favorite after all this time.

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer
Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer

Another holy grail product. This primer not only smells like heaven, but gives me a poreless finish that no other primer has offered.

COVERGIRL Brow & Eye Makers Brow Shaper and Eyeliner
COVERGIRL Brow & Eye Makers Brow Shaper and Eyeliner

Okay. So call me old fashioned because I'm using this instead of Brow Wiz or Glossier, but it seriously fills in my brows and stays put. All while looking natural and giving my brows that depth and fullness that I need.

NYX HD Finishing Powder Banana
NYX HD Finishing Powder Banana

Holy grail product here. Seriously brightens up my face and makes me look so much more finished. I'd totally feel like I wasn't together completely if I forgot to apply some!

Maybelline Facestudio® Master Conceal®
Maybelline Facestudio® Master Conceal®

Like it says in its description, it's super pigmented. I use this under my eyes and it clears up those up-all-night-studying dark circles. If my face is broken out, I dab a small brush in a little drop of this stuff and put it on any red spots.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

This range of shades perfectly serves both my every day looks and my date night looks.
