I don’t know about ya’ll but I have my go to make up essentials that I find myself reaching for all the time! Today I am going to share with you my absolute faves and let you in on why you need them in your life too.
Of course I have plenty of other products I love and use lots but these are my ride or die and what I would call your staple products. If you have these in your rotation you have the base for an amazing face. You can use these as your base and finishing touches and bring in other items you also love. These products are always, always stocked in my make up collection and I can’t live without them.
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – This stuff is EVERYTHING. Seriously! I have been using it for a few years now and couldn’t imagine my everyday routine without it. I apply it after my primer and before my foundation. It instantly brightens tired eyes and gives that area a nice glow. It will have you looking instantly awake & ready to take on the day.
Laura Mercier Radiance Primer – This is just as good as the Becca corrector I mentioned above but for your whole face! I use this as my base no matter what. If am wearing tinted moisturiser I will still use it or of course if I am wearing foundation. It gives a radiant glow and makes your skin look so much more youthful and healthy. Do yourself a favour and run don’t walk.
Bali Body BB Cream – I had been looking for the perfect BB cream for so so long and I’m so happy I found this one a few years ago. It is light so perfect for hot weather and just gives you a nice low key coverage for those days when you don’t want much make up on. It lets your skin breathe AND also gives you a gorgeous sun kissed glow so just like the name says you will look like you have just stepped off the plane from Bali. Oh and did I mention it has SPF15 in it so will help keep your face protected from the sunshine.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil – This eyebrow pencil is so good! It comes in many different shades and is super easy to apply. I use it to fill in my brows and I love it because on the other end there is a brush to fluff up your brows. You can buy this on its own, I however got mine as part of the Benefit pack that contains a bench of brow essentials. I highly recommend!
MAC Studio Fix Powder – This powder is perfect for setting your make up. I put it on either on top of my BB cream or foundation and it just helps keep everything in place. It’s a matte powder so if you are on the oily side it will help with that.
NARS Soft Matte Concealer – I have only started using this product in the last few months and its safe to say it will be staying as part of my routine. It is the perfect consistency, not too light, not too heavy and does the job of covering up those tired or dark eyes or even any other blemishes you might have. I personally apply mine after my foundation and then blend it in.
MAC Prep + Prime Spray – This spray is the HOLY GRAIL and I have been using it for longer than I can remember!! All I can say is, if you don’t use this yet, get onto it stat, you can thank me later! Just spritz your face at the end of applying all your other make up and you are good to go for a long day ahead. Your make up will stay in place, and an added bonus, it feels super refreshing when you apply it!
