My Everyday Go To Products

These products are for an effortless everyday look that I simply cannot live without. They are always what I bring with me when I stay overnight anywhere because they are products I can count on! Some of these are just everyday favorites that help me out when I am in a pinch- both time wise and financially.

Burt's Bees® Beeswax Lip Balm
Burt's Bees® Beeswax Lip Balm

BEST CHAPSTICK EVER. I rarely use chapstick because I do not like using products on my lips often. It is easy to apply and you can immediately feel it working. It has a cool sensation and upon wind touching your lips, it feels cold. It works to moisturize your lips fixing any chapping as well as to shield them from the elements. It is a must for all seasons and the tube lasts you forever.

Ben Nye Banana Powder
Ben Nye Banana Powder

This product is a life saver for my dark under eye circles. I think that this product has great properties including the fact that you only need to use a small amount to make a finishing product. I do not like to use it on my whole face especially when I am dry because it has a flaky end look to it.

Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate

I am only 21 years old and I already can see signs of aging because of my studies and being so busy all the time. I got this in a Lancome kit for Christmas. I use it under my eyes where I get dark circles, at the outer corners of my eyes where wrinkles start when I smile, as well as on my eyelid to ensure firmness for easier makeup application. It does not burn and it is easy to dab on and dries quickly.

Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover
Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

I have this in the 4.2 FL container. It is great because it easily removes all makeup: face, eye, eyebrow, etc. I use it almost every night with a cotton swap to remove my eye makeup prior to washing my face. It immediately removes all dirt and residue that makeup usually leaves behind. It is less oily than other makeup removers but it does not burn your eyes at all.

Ardell Lash Brow Excel Growth Accelerator 7ml/0.25oz
Ardell Lash Brow Excel Growth Accelerator 7ml/0.25oz

I got this product at Sally's a while back. I have been using it to fix the botch job that a salon did to my eyebrows years ago. It has worked but slowly. I apply it where I want my eyebrows to fill in at and after using it habitually, they slowly began to come in.

Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne Treatment Gel
Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne Treatment Gel

I am new to Mary Kay and it is great to use to fix blemishes. I use it twice a day. Once before putting makeup on, and once after removing my makeup before going to bed. It works well but works even better with the rest of the clearproof kit.

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild
Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild

I love this for on the go packing. It is great because of how mild it is and I can use it to remove my makeup upon washing my face without worrying it will burn. It is good for cleansing but not for fixing my acne at all.

Profusion Cosmetics Pro Contour 6 Colors Contour
Profusion Cosmetics Pro Contour 6 Colors Contour

I have bought two of these so far because of the yellow color that is included in it. It comes with a highlighter, a yellow tone, a neutral tone, and 3 darker contour tones. I primarily use the top left, top middle, bottom left, and bottom middle the most for my skin color. They are very pigmented but you can tell the makeup is of a cheaper grade due to the graininess of it upon application.

ULTA Voluptuous Volume Mascara
ULTA Voluptuous Volume Mascara

I got this when I had a giftcard for Ulta. It has proven to be a great touch up and initial applicator. The brush's bristles are wide and full to ensure full application of the product as well as to expand the lashes when brushing it on. It has not dried out and continues to be a favorite product of mine.

Bath & Body Works Vitamin E Lotion Love & Sunshine
Bath & Body Works Vitamin E Lotion Love & Sunshine

Bath and Body Works lotions are my favorite because of their difference scents. This has so far been my favorite. I choose the compact sizes to easily take with me wherever I go. This smell is not too fragrant to cause headaches and is still refreshing and noticeable enough to tell when you are wearing it. It is great for moisturizing-partly due to the elements of Shea and Vitamin E in it.

Bath Body Works Bath & Body Works Fresh Sparkling Snow Anti-bacterial Hand Sanitizer Pocketbac
Bath Body Works Bath & Body Works Fresh Sparkling Snow Anti-bacterial Hand Sanitizer Pocketbac

LOVE this smell! It is refreshing and you can tell it works. There are very small beads in it to accelerate the sanitation of your hands. A little goes a long way and it is helpful when on the go. I have had it in my purse for over a year and it has continued to come in handy due to the compact size of it and how it is almost spill-proof due to the engineering of the cap.

COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder
COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder

This is my on the goal quick fix foundation. It quickly takes away shininess and helps me to keep going when I cannot stop to fix my makeup. It is easy to take on the go and does not break easily. It has a small mirror in the compact and it is discreet to take wherever you go

Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color
Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color

I have this in many colors but my absolute favorite is Pink Taupe. It has a rosy look to a natural color. It matches my lip color well with giving it a slightly bolder color. It is like a crayon to apply and it is easy to take off. Having said that, it does last long even while eating. It is not waterproof but it does uphold better than most lipsticks.

Lancome Dual End Liner and Shadow - Brush #18
Lancome Dual End Liner and Shadow - Brush #18

I just got this with a Lancome kit for Christmas. Mine is in black and it is perfect for multi purpose uses. I use it to apply shadow, to apply lipstick, to clean up with concealer, and to accentuate my lower and upper lash line with shadow.

e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow C Brush
e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow C Brush

This brush is new to me. I am still learning the best way to use it. It has an interesting angle and it is a very full-bristled brush for it being so small. It is rounded at the top which makes it great for using in the crease. However, it does apply a great deal of eyeshadow very easily making me cautious to use it with some highly pigmented shadows for fear of being unable to properly blend it all. I do not use it to blend due to the shape. It is an application-only brush.

e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush
e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush

This brush is great for multi purpose uses. I use it to apply powder foundation to set my face, to apply fine setting powder, and to blend everything in the end after application. I always bring it with me because it is the brush that fixes any mistake I make.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Angled Blush Brush
e.l.f. Cosmetics Angled Blush Brush

I got this as a gift for Christmas this year and so far it works great. The bristles are soft and smooth and do not irritate my face when using it. It picks up powder well and the application is smooth and blended rather than being blotchy and uneasy to blend. I love e.l.f. brushes and this is another keeper for my collection.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I pay for products to be shipped to me each month from Ipsy. I received a small version of this eyeliner and I fell in love. Once I run out, I plan on buying the larger version myself. It is easy and smooth to apply and lasts all day. It is a dark black pigmentation which I love because you can see it even after using dramatic mascara. It stands out against most smokey eye looks also.

Clinique Beyond Perfecting™ Foundation + Concealer
Clinique Beyond Perfecting™ Foundation + Concealer

I use the color Fair which works best for my olive-undertone skin. I like it because it is thicker-without it being a face mask. It helps cover the acne that I always have and it does not feel heavy or oily even after wearing it all day. I have combination skin which makes me oily on my T-zone. I do think that this is the best foundation so far that does not add to my oiliness or dry out my complexion. I do use a powder to finish setting my face to minimize shininess. It is supposed to be somewhat matte but it still appears shiny and none of the colors in this formula perfectly match my complexion.

Ardell Brow Pomade
Ardell Brow Pomade

I will never choose another pomade to use for my eyebrows. I have had it for years and it looks as if I have barely used it. The pigmentation is perfect and the texture of it is light and easily applied. I recommend it to anyone who likes the way I do my eyebrows because of how precise it allows you to be. I do not use the utensil that it comes with because it is not fine enough of an angled brush. I prefer to dampen the pomade with a setting spray before applying it for a thinner application.

Wet N Wild PhotoFocus Face Primer
Wet N Wild PhotoFocus Face Primer

This primer is a cheap, quick fix when in a pinch. I use it when I do not have a better quality one from Ulta. It works more as a moisturizer than a true pore minimizer or primer. It does help to apply it prior to foundation because it does seem to help apply it evenly.

Beautiful Brow Kit
Beautiful Brow Kit

I use this literally every single day. I bought it from Sally's Beauty Store. It was inexpensive and it has proven to be a key in my makeup set. I really like the pigmentation of the darkest brown shade to match my complexion. I use it as a last step to really define my brows after using a pomade. I use the shimmer shade to highlight my brow in a dramatic way. The wax is a little too thick for my liking so I do not use it much.

Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio Filter 0.097 oz
Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio Filter 0.097 oz

This is my GO TO always for eyeshadow and even for my eyebrows if I didn't have my normal powder. It is great in terms of pigmentation and is easy to pack and bring on the go. The colors are perfect because you can go for a natural, smoldering look or even a bare and natural look with the lighter shades. The lightest shade I use to highlight my brow bone. I use the lighter brown as my eyelid color while the darker brown goes on the crease.

e.l.f. Lengthening & Defining Mascara - Black
e.l.f. Lengthening & Defining Mascara - Black

I lOVE this mascara. I use it every day as a first application. It allows you to see where your lashes are at so that you do not apply too much product to them initially. It allows you to make them appear longer and more full at the same time while still giving them a natural look. You could use this for your mascara only if you wanted a more natural look but I need more volume so I use another kind for my second coat.

Max Factor Masterpiece MAX Mascara
Max Factor Masterpiece MAX Mascara

I LOVE this. I got it for free from this site a while back in the summertime. It came with a matching eyeliner but the mascara alone is amazing. I use it as my second coat to really illuminate my lashes and to give them a bolder, more dramatic look. The brush utensil is fine and allows you to put small amounts of product on your lashes at a time so they do not appear clumpy. Definitely my favorite mascara so far.

Clinique Moisture Surge™ Extended Thirst Relief
Clinique Moisture Surge™ Extended Thirst Relief

This is a MUST for combination skin! It moisturizes your skin without leaving that oily residue that many moisturizers leave behind. I apply it multiple times a day if I can. It is best used after showers, before makeup application, and anytime you are not wearing makeup. I use it as often as possible and all you need is a little bit since it goes such a long way. This jar of 1.7 oz is going to last a long time.

Clear Proof® Clarifying Cleansing Gel
Clear Proof® Clarifying Cleansing Gel

This cleansing gel has been the solution for my skin! I have tried every other acne medication cleanser and none have worked for my combination skin complexion. This cleanser does not burn, itchy, or hurt my skin. It is gentle while still giving that cool after-feeling when in contact with the air. It is best used with the kit but by itself, I use it at least once a day for clearer results.
