Makeup Must-Haves

Makeup has always been one of my favorite things. I like to think that since I have always been a creative person, makeup serves as another form of a creative outlet for myself. For the past five or six years, I have been pretty into makeup. That being said, I have been around the makeup block as far as trying popular products and brands, therefore I have a few makeup must-haves that I would love to share.

Lush Cosmetics Cosmetic Lad Facial Moisturizer I initially bought this moisturizer because I needed something that wasn't going to be heavy on the skin. I really like it because it is meant to be put on underneath makeup, therefore it is a light consistency. It is also a good moisturizer to mix with a light foundation and then put on for a creamier look.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance I love, love, love this product because it really does keep my eyeshadow and eyeliner on all day. It is extremely lightweight, which doesn't feel like I am adding another heavy layer of product to my lids.

Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette I am typically a big fan of glittery eyeshadow, but this palette has become a new favorite. I love creating a smokey eye with this palette and layering on the colors! As you can probably tell, 'natural beauty' is my go-to shade.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Curvitude Mascara I am always hesitant to pay for a high-end mascara (maybe one day), so I always opt for a drug-store brand. This mascara is great because while it makes my lashes stand out, it doesn't make them clumpy like other drug-store mascaras can do.

ColourPop Super Shock Highligher in 'Lunch Money' One of my favorite things about this highlighter is that it is so cheap! I do have a couple higher-end highlighters but always finding this one to be my favorite since it is so pigmented, it looks noticeable and great on the skin for an everyday look. I highly suggest this if you are looking for a highlighter but not necessarily comfortable yet using a highlighter.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in 'Bad Habit' This has to be one of my favorite lip products because believe me when I say this will stay on your lips for hours! The color is extremely rich and the texture is super creamy; making it a winner.

NYX Cosmetics Matte Finish Setting Spray This product is what I finish off every look with every day. I am a huge NYX Cosmetics fan and this has to be one of my favorite products from this company. This setting spray does a good job of keeping everything in place, including my winged eyeliner, and it's for a price that won't break the bank.
