My All-Time Favorite Makeup

For today’s post I wanted to share my all-time favorite drugstore and high-end makeup products.

For some of the products it was difficult narrowing them down, so I included an honorable mention as well.

Primer

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer: This primer is my go-to since it keeps my face shine-free and helps my makeup last a little bit longer (review)

Too Faced Hangover Primer: Even though this primer is more like a moisturizer, it helps my makeup last most of the day while keeping my face moisturized (review)

Honorable Mention NYX Shine Killer: This primer keeps my face oil-free for most of the day and makes my makeup last a few hours longer (review)

Concealer

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Porcelain and Light: This is my go-to concealer that provides full coverage for dark circles and imperfections (review)

Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light: This concealer is full coverage and conceals any spots, and a little goes a long way (review)

Honorable Mention NYX Wonder Pencil in Light: Even though this concealer only provides light coverage, it can touch up and correct my makeup (review)

Liquid Foundation

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation in Light: This foundation provides sheer to full coverage with a soft matte finish that lasts all day when set with powder and spray

  1. I haven’t tried many of these but the ones I have would probably be in my favourites too. I don’t think I could pick all time favourites but there’s definitely be a sleek eyeshadow palette, NYX concealer and Kat Von D liquid lipstick.

    1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜Š NYX has a lot of great products! The only thing I wouldn’t recommend is their mascara. I’ve tried 2 & 1 was really dry & the other one wasn’t that effective.

      1. Oh I understand. Since my boyfriend is working I take our daughter to & from daycare (it’s about a 30 min walk one way) so if I have a cold it takes longer to get better
