My Holy Grail: 14 Makeup Products I Cannot Live Without

Welcome back Beauties 💜,

Today's post is *Drum Roll Please* ......

MY HOLY GRAIL MAKEUP PRODUCTS!! (in order of use, not favoritism):

1. Becca First Light Priming Filter - don't be alarmed by its color! It will not make you look like Barney, I promise!  The light purple cancels out any sallow or dullness in the skin, making you look refreshed, brightened, and hydrated.

2. Loreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation - yes, my favorite foundation is from the drug store. Seriously, you can't beat the price or the quality.  I have insanely dry skin and this foundation makes me look ultra-hydrated (I'm sensing a theme here).

3. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer - No creasing, no caking, no discoloration peeking through.  Amazeballs.

4. RCMA Makeup No Color Powder - although you can't actually buy it at the drugstore, it definitely has a drug store price tag, which who doesn't love?! It does not leave a white cast and it is so soft and finely milled, it feels like flour.  I use a little bit of this to set my concealer and it does not budge or crease all day!

5. Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer - creamy, buttery, blendable... and did I mention it smells like a vacation? In-FREAKIN-credible.

6. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in "Exposed" - its a buildable, pinky nude blush that lasts all day long!

7. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in "Rose Quartz" - Super blinding but not sparkly; it does not emphasize the texture on my cheeks and makes my skin look SO glowy.

8. Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario - sadly, this was a limited edition product that has been sold out for a couple of months now (which made me hesitant to choose since I obviously can't post a link to it) but it truly is my absolutely go-to for a day or nighttime eye look.

9. NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil in "Light" - I have tried every pale pink / nude / white eyeliner on the market and this is BY FAR the best one! It lasts all day, doesn't smear or budge, and is the perfect color to brighten and widen the eyes.

10. Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer - MY GOSH, WHAT A NAME! I put this on before my mascara to get a lot of length and volume.  I don't know how I ever wore mascara before lash primer - honestly my favorite beauty product of all time.  ITS THAT GOOD.

11. CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara - this was suggested to me by Tati, the YouTube Influencer. When I first saw the wand, I thought to myself, "how on EARTH is this going to give me desirable lashes??" It's okay if you're skeptical, too - I've never seen anything like it either!  Maybe it's a magic formula, maybe its the torture-device-looking wand... I don't know, but I like it.

12. Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in "2C - Rosewood"- The color is like my actual lip color but better.  Perfect color to slightly over line the lips with but still look natural.  It can be used on its own or underneath another lip product and IT STAYS ON!

13. ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in "Aquarius" - the greatest pinky nude lip gloss, especially to wear over Rosewood, but looks great on its own too.  It is super pigmented and absolutely stunning.

14. Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray in "Chill - Cooling and Hydrating" - as mentioned previously (about a billion times) I have dry skin so anything with the label "hydrating" I am all for!  I think this is currently the best setting spray on the market, in terms of keeping your makeup in place all day and night, while eliminating a powdery finish.

WOO HOO! We made it through all of my Holy Grail Products 😃 I hope you enjoyed it!

  1. I can't wait to try that mascara!

  2. Mascara is the leading product in the makeup products. It is applied on the eyes for make stand out look and attractive for others. Mascara packaging is also design very elegantly for the customers.
