I get a lot of questions regarding the specific makeup that I use on a daily basis, as well as makeup that I use when I wear a complete face. Because of that, I’ll share my beauty favorites with you. I purchased all of these items with all of my own savings (lol) and am just sharing with you in case you want to purchase these brands, but do not want to spend your hard earned money on it without completing research first.
You guys already know how much I adore Magnolia Makeup. I love the Ultra Matte Lipsticks and am starting a little collection here. These are my go to lipsticks. Any recent photo that you’ve seen on me on Instagram most likely has me in a Magnolia Makeup Ultra Matte Lipstick. (Did I tell you they have samples for sale on the website as well?)
I also love Plantain Powder and Soul Glo metallic bronze illuminating powder. I use Plantain for my highlight…I actually use it for ‘baking’. It works better (to me) than Ben Nye Banana powder and I adore it. Every Magnolia Makeup product that I have is very long lasting…very high quality…and very loved (by me of course).
You guys know I adore Lancome. I have a whole lot of Lancome products that I’ve collected. My two favorites are the La Base Pore Eraser and the Teint Idole Ulta 24H Makeup in 550 Suede (c). The Pore Eraser makes an awesome primer for my nose area—where I have pore issues—and it keeps my foundation smooth and beautiful. The Teint Idole Ultra 24H Makeup is also awesome. It is very long lasting—last me a complete 9 hour work day. I only see bouts of oil around my nose around the 6th or 7th hour of wear.
I love the L.A. Girl PRO.conceal HD concealer in Orange Corrector GC990. I have raccoon eyes and hypepigmentation on the sides of my face. I conceal these areas prior to putting my foundation on and it makes a beautiful full coverage finish. Because of that, I do not have to use a lot of foundation but still have a full coverage look.

My new mascara love is the lights, camera, LASHES 4-in-1 mascara from Tarte. It is vegan and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. I”ve been having lots of issues wearing mascara recently because my eyes are sensitive. Ever since I’ve found this, I’ve been able to tolerate wearing mascara.
Oval Makeup Brush:
Oh, this helps so much with blending out my contour. I love it. This also helps me with highlighting and blending out my Soul Glo and Plantain Powder from Magnolia. It’s very easy to use. It cuts my blending time in half. It’s soft…I love it. I have not replaced all of my makeup brushes. But of those specific uses, this brush is BOMB.
Benefit POREfessional Super Mattifying Gel. I love it. I am a primer girl, so I have a lot. The two that I use the most are by Benefit and Lancome. This does what it says…and since I have oily skin, a mattifying primer is perfect for me. I get long mattifying power with this primer and it helps my foundation stay on for long…long wear.
