My Makeup Must Haves: Products

Good morning ladies! Today I’m going to share the makeup products that I have been loving lately. I always enjoy trying new makeup and these products are definitely some of my favorites that I have been using consistently.

fix +
Mac Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix +

Mac cosmetics Fix + Prep and Prime is something I have been using for a very long time and love it! I spritz a few sprays on my face before I apply my  makeup to refresh my skin, and then again after all of my makeup is on to set it. Sometimes I will even use it after I have washed my face before bed just because it feels so refreshing! It has green tea, chamomile and cucumber in it and is so hydrating on my skin.

 

face and body
Mac Studio Face and Body Foundation

This face and body foundation from Mac has quickly become a favorite of mine. I love getting that even complexion that foundation gives you, but I hate when it’s thick and cakey and feels like my face can’t breathe. This foundation is more of a light coverage, but can be built up and gives you a dewy finish. You can add powder over it to give it a matte look.

prolongwear concealer
Mac Prolongwear Concealer 

Another favorite of mine is this Mac prolongwear concealer. I like to mix NW 20 AND NW 25 together and then apply it as my highlight under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my cupids bow and chin. It has a lightweight feel and lasts all day or night. I like to use my damp beauty blender to help blend this concealer out.

Mac Cosmetics ‘Saint Germain’ Lip Glass 

When it comes to lipsticks, I’m a total Mac lipstick addict; I love the colors they have to offer! I have some really great bright lipsticks from them, but they also have really great natural colors as well. Two lipsticks I have been using a lot lately are Angel and Hue. When I use Hue, I like to start with this lip pencil  Whirl. I apply it as a lip liner and then fill in my whole lip. I then use Hue and top it off with Saint Germain lipglass. I love mixing the pencils, lipsticks and glosses because you can create so many great colors.

Morphe 35O Palette

I ordered this palette from Morphe last fall, and I had quite a hard time getting my hands on it! Every time they restocked it, it would sell out. When I got it I was very anxious to try it out and see what all the hype was about, and I instantly fell in love! The colors are so rich and are great quality, and the best part, it was only $22.99 for 35 shadows! If you haven’t tried Morphe’s shadows I highly recommend giving them a shot.

 

highlighter
Makeup Forever Shine On Powder 

This next product I discovered while taking a week long makeup class at Makeup Forever Academy in NYC. Let me tell you, this little jar of powder is amazing!! This powder is used as a highlighter and can be used on your face or your body. It gives off a  shimmer when the light hits it and looks gorgeous on the cheekbone. It contains fine mother of pearl particles, which helps give it that beautiful glow.

 

What are some other products that you guys love? I’m always looking to try new things!

Xoxo,

Danielle

    1. I notice a little bit before because it helps to hydrate my skin so my foundation and concealer isn’t as flaky. When I use it to set my makeup I notice it helps keep my makeup dewy when I’m going for that look.
