Ever since starting my own YouTube channel earlier this year, I’ve gotten into the habit of subscribing and tuning in to other channels for inspiration. A few favorites include Klossy, Samantha Maria, The Michalaks, and Hannah Maggs, and while totally unexpected, I’ve come to really love when my favorite vloggers share makeup reviews and roundups.
So I thought I’d try something new (and completely outside my comfort zone!)—namely sharing a few portraits and a list of the makeup products that I’m personally loving right now. I know this doesn’t have much to do with crafting, but my main goal this year is to offer you resources beyond just simple DIY tutorials. I want you to be able to come to this space and get advice ranging from home décor and, of course, crafting, but also cooking, mental health awareness, and even beauty. Without further adieu or delay, see my list of makeup go-to’s below!
What’s In My Everyday Makeup Bag
- Garnier SkinActive BB Cream 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector Normal/Dry Skin in ‘Light/Medium’ SPF 15 ($9.49)
- bareMinerals Max Coverage Concealer makeup brush ($20)
- bareMinerals Bisque Concealer SPF 20 ($18)
- bareMinerals Flawless Face makeup brush ($28)
- bareMinerals Original Foundation in ‘Fairly Light’ SPF 15 ($28.50)
- bareMinerals All-Over Fave Color in ‘Warmth’ ($21)
- CoverGirl Cheekers in ‘Plumberry Glow’ 3-pack ($15.32)
- bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder ($22)
- Almay Intense i-color Eyeliner in ‘Black Pearl’ ($4.99)
- Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($5.99)
- L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer ($8.99) **I just started using this product (after these photographs were shot, though, so don’t let my bare brows below deter you) and I LOVE it!!
The only time I really change up this sequence is if I decide to use brown eyeliner instead of black (I know—I’m just wild, right?!). My go-to brown eyeliner is Almay Intense i-color Eyeliner in ‘Brown Topaz’ ($4.99), which I love to pair with the brand’s Everyday Neutrals Powder Shadow in ‘Trio For Blues’ ($8.49). I have two favorite lipsticks: Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in ‘Poppy Nude’ ($7.99) and Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour in ‘Graffiti Pop’ ($18.50)—the former I’m wearing in the photos you see in this post. Both are long-lasting and neither dries out my lips.
What’s in your everyday makeup bag? Have you tried any of the brands and products I mentioned above? Most I’ve used since I started wearing makeup as a teenager, and I would highly recommend every single thing you see in that list. That said, I love playing around with different combos, so please shout out the beauty products you love yourself below!
I would not have pegged you as a drugstore makeup girl, but then again, we really don’t know each other all that well :p
I will second you on the Bare Minerals products! As for eyes, I’m a dedicated Urban Decay fan. I’m also not a lipstick girl, so I really love NYX’s Butter Gloss. I’ve also recently become a fan of Tarte’s gel eyeliner and their airbrush foundation powder!
Haha!! I love drugstore beauty 🙂 And I’m excited to hear that you’re a Bare Minerals fan, too! I couldn’t live without my collection. I’m off to go research those other products you mentioned—thanks for the recommendations!
Oh my gosh – you must be a mind-reader! I’ve been looking for an inexpensive and long-lasting warm read lipstick for ages, and I think ‘Poppy Nude’ may just be it!
Yay!! I’m so thrilled to hear this was a timely post for you! I think you’ll love that color 🙂
