I don't know why I've never done a post like this before. I have some make-up must-haves and I'm serious, I use these pretty much every day. Sometimes I venture out with the eyeshadow, but these are my staples!
Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream // If I have to leave the house in a hurry, using this BB cream is the ONE thing that I don't forget! It's like a tinted moisturizer and primer combined in one bottle. It's easy to spread all over the face and it feels light and natural. I love how it evens out the colors in my face. As I get older, the coloring in my face has changed - I actually break out more than I did as a teenager and I have a bunch of freckles. I use the 'fair to light' color and it has SPF 30 in it for protection from the sun.
Sonia Kashuk All Covered Up Concealer // This is a must-have for under my eyes! They've gotten a little darker lately and this concealer lightens them right back up! It feels light and doesn't look cakey - hallelujah!
Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner pen in LEL Black // This is my FAVORITE find from my Ipsy subscription! I actually got it in my very first bag in June 2014. It goes on smoothly, doesn't run and is the perfect color. It also creates a thin, definitive line - I'm not a thick eyeliner kind of gal. I have tried the NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker (hated it), the Loreal Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner (eh) and a ton of pencils and this Jesse's Girl one is seriously the best. I just stocked up on them so that I don't run out.
Pacifica Natural Beauty Eyeshadow in Ethereal // Another Ipsy find. This eyeshadow is a really light, natural color which is perfect for me. It's not for making a huge statement, just for the everyday natural look.
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara in Blackest Black // I've used this one for years! I've tried others to see if I like them better and I always go back to this one. The price is good and it makes my eyelashes look full and long!
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée // I know I've talked about this one on the blog! I first received the butter gloss in Apple Strudel in an Ipsy bag, but didn't love the color. I bought Creme Brûlée after reading great reviews and guess what? I LOVED it!
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Gray Area // Is nail polish considered make-up?! I don't think so, but regardless, this is my favorite go-to fall color. I have it on my nails right now!
What are some of your make-up must-haves? I'm always looking for new stuff to try!
