Top 5 Makeup Products


These products are my ride or die items that I will continue to buy throughout the years. I have combo acne prone skin, so whatever doesn't aggravate my sensitive skin or eyes and works, I keep using! If it ain't broke, don't fix it ;)

Kevyn Aucoin Contour Powder in Medium

Man do those Sephora samples get you. I was a lucky, and snagged a sample of this and have been obsessed ever since. In my opinion, you don't know contour unless you have tried this product. This is an extremely expensive product and I have heard that this Elf contour palette is a dupe so I will keep you guys updated on that. I have a hard time finding products that work with my skin and I not only use this for contouring but as an eyeshadow and the little sample has lasted me for quite some time so I highly recommend!

Carli Bybel Deluxe Eyeshadow + Highlighter Palette

My sister got this for me for my birthday this year and I almost cried..I kid you not. She knows how much I wanted that palette and I have been OBSESSED to say the least. I really hope this palette sticks around because I may need to buy some backups, that is how AMAZING this product is. The formulas are so soft, easy to blend, rich pigment and can we talk about how blinding those highlights are?! GLOW UP GIRL! I always get compliments when wearing the eyeshadows or highlighters and love the versatility of the palette as well!

Jack Black Lip Balm in Black Tea + Blackberry

It only took about 25 years to find my perfect lip balm. It is super hydrating, has spf to protect against the sun and I love how I can just wear this on its own and it looks great. It smells amazing, is thick enough to provide hydration and protection yet doesn't leave your lips feeling sticky or leaving that nasty white line!

Dr. Jart BB Cream 

I don't even know where to start with this one. This is my holy grail face product for sure. My face is so sensitive and will break out from anything. I love how this combines both skincare and makeup so you get great coverage while protecting skin and treating it. I love using this day to day and love wearing this to the beach or pool during the summer!

Marc Jacobs Gel Eyeliner in Black 

Again with the Sephora samples..brilliant marketing strategy..well done Sephora..well done. I have been on the hunt for an eyeliner that doesn't budge (or make me look like a raccoon), stays in my waterline and has great pigment and this takes the cake. It is so creamy and stays in my waterline (I swear I have the runniest eyes). It is super pigmented and now I want more colors! I have my eyes on that white!
