These were the products that I consistently reached for when I was getting ready this year:
By Terry hyaluronic hydra-primer – blurs imperfections and hydrates the skin
BareMinerals complexion rescue hydrating foundation stick – like colored water. this is just so hydrating
First Aid Beauty bendy avocado concealer – this is my second tube. that’s how much I like this
Glossier stretch concealer – this is what I always use when I don’t want to put foundation on and just want some really light coverage
Onomie radical setting mist – I like spraying this on my brush before applying foundation. This just makes everything look better
Trestique highlight and perfect multipurpose stick – the subtle glow it gives is my favorite. It’s also so easy to blend.
Kosas color and light creme: velvet melon – I’ve always been an 8th muse girl but this year was the year of velvet melon for me. The peach tone of this one makes my face look healthy and fun. Like I just spent the weekend by the beach.
Innisfree petal blusher – easy to use, natural-looking, and gives a subtle-looking, pinch-on-the-cheek like blush
Kosas 10-second eyeshadow – I love all the colors but supreme just really takes the throne. It’s metallic, high-impact, yet so easy to apply and blend
Ilia Beauty the necessary eyeshadow palette, cool nude – this is my everyday palette. it doesn’t contain the usual neutrals which I really like but it still works in any setting.
Em Cosmetics fine liner brow pencil-thin, sturdy, and pigmented. Everything I need in a brow pencil
Lilah B glisten and glow skin illuminator – the shade b. captivating just gives my skin a healthy glow. I also like using this on my lids for a creamy-looking shimmer
Benefit Cosmetics they’re real mascara – forever and always
Pat McGrath Labs matte trance, flesh 3 – the most pigmented and longest wearing matte lipstick I’ve tried that doesn’t cake or settle between the lines. Flesh 3 is my go-to when going out
