Below I listed, and linked, my everyday and current favorite makeup essentials. Even though I’m usually home with my toddler, going on park or grocery trips, I still like to keep myself put together. I can be feeling down or exhausted but putting on some makeup can really lift my mood!
- Wet n’ Wild Mega Cushion Foundation
I like this foundation for light coverage and everyday if I feel like my skin needs a little extra evening out and/or color. It contains SPF 15 which is nice for these spring and summer days at the park or any outdoor activities and also leaves a pretty dewy look to the skin.
2. L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
This is a foundation that I like for special day occasions if I want medium to full coverage- I say ‘day’ because it does contain SPF and if you were to wear this at night and take pictures you’ll get some flashback. This foundation is so pretty and has a nice satin finish. It’s also a good mixing foundation!
3. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
I love light to medium foundations and this one has managed to be one of my favorites for a few years now, especially for spring and summer. I love that it gives me a ‘your skin but better’ look and that it leaves my skin looking so pretty and glowy. It really is such a beautiful foundation.
4. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer
When it comes to concealer I like good coverage, but nothing too heavy. I recently decided to give this one a try and have really been enjoying it. I use the shades sand, to brighten, and medium, mixed with sand to give me a little extra coverage on some spots where I feel that I need it since sand is a little to light for me currently. I like how this concealer dries down almost in a satin looking way so it doesn’t look too dry under my eyes.
5. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
This bronzer smells SOOO good, ugh. I love how smooth the formula is and that it’s a buildable bronzer. It has a really pretty but subtle sheen to give you the right bronzed look.
6. Milani Baked Blushes
Milani has some of the prettiest blushes at the drugstore, in my opinion. They are so beautifully pigmented and are perfect for summer since they have a pretty sheen to them that isn’t shimmery. Blush really puts the look together and these are perfect to add the right flush of color to the face.
7. Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter
If you want to glow THIS is the highlighter for you. These are stunning. SO creamy and buttery and extremely pigmented. I love this for the face and even to add to my collarbones and shoulders.
8. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm
These lip balms are so moisturizing and nourishing to the lips. They always leave my lips feeling nice and smooth. I love that they have a sheer but pretty tint to them, adding to and enhancing your lip color.
9. Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
When I was younger I loved adding a lipgloss to my lips but hated how sticky they felt. I recently decided to give this one a try, in the shade Fenty Glow, and OMG I love it and love that it’s not sticky at all. It really is such a flattering gloss on everyone that can be worn on its own or on top of something if you’d like. They also smell delicious!
Please feel free to share any current favorites that you guys have! I’m always looking for new things to try out 🙂
