Primer: I’m still on the hunt for my all time favorite primer, but I’ve had good results with: this one from NYX, this silky smooth primer (in the sheer tint), and even this Nivea Men’s product!

Foundation: on days when I don’t want too much coverage, I love this powder foundation! It’s amazing, I always get compliments on my skin when I wear it. It gives a really natural looking coverage to your skin and is perfect for days when you just need a little something!

When I’m not using that powder, I like to use liquid foundation. My current favorite is this one from Maybelline! It gives a really nice coverage without looking cakey.

Color Corrector/Concealer: I’ve gotta have my under eye color corrector! This one has an apricot/salmon color to it so it’s perfect for canceling out my dark circles, I can’t live without it! My favorite concealer right now has to be this one, it covers and blends really well!

Powder: This powder is incredible, and the best part? It’s only $6!

Bronze/Contour/Highlight: I recently picked up this contour pallet and I’ve fallen in love with it. The powders are super creamy and have the perfect pigmentation. This is a really impressive drugstore find!

my absolute favorite highlighter is Champagne Pop from BECCA. But i am also loving this one from Colourpop!

Blush: my go-to blush would have to be this beautiful peachy one from Too Faced. It has a little bit of shimmer in it so you also get a pretty highlight when applied! I am also loving this blush from Tarte!


Pencil: I love these brow pencils! It’s sometimes hard for me to find a good color match for my brows because most brown colors have too much of a warm tint to them, but the Ash Brown color of these pencils is a perfect match for me! You can find the automatic pencil here, and the regular pencil here. If I want a more defined look, I love this super affordable brow pomade!


Eyeshadow: I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday, but I do like to put a little bronzer or contour powder in my crease and add some highlight in my inner corner and brow bone. When I do wear eyeshadow, my favorite pallets are this one and this one!
Eyeliner: This is my favorite eyeliner ever! I hate felt tip liners; this one is a brush tip which is really hard to find in the drugstore, so this one has definitely become a necessity for me!
Mascara: I am constantly trying out different mascaras to find the best one! You can find my current favorite here.
