Hey guys! Today I am going to be sharing 5 of my favorite makeup items I use every day. Hope you enjoy and maybe find something new to try out :)
1. NARS Bronzing powder in Laguna $39.00
This is my all time favorite bronzing powder. Bronzers usually tend to be too orange, too dark, or too glittery. This one is perfect for the winter when I am pretty pale or in the summer when i have a nice tan. It has a good amount of shimmer but not too much where you end up looking like a disco ball.

2. Bobbi Brown BB cream $46.00
I have tried almost every foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB cream that they sell in search of that perfect one that makes me look like I have amazing airbrush dewy skin. I was finally able to stop my search when I tried this one. I apply it with the beauty blender (sold at sephora or online) and it gives me a perfect dewy and natural finish. It doesn't make me look cakey which is a huge plus. I also love all the added skin benefits it has like moisturizing and protecting from UV rays while also giving me a good amount of coverage. I have found that every foundation is different on everyone.. some break people out and some don't and some look good on someone but not so good on others. Finding the perfect foundation is trial an error so don't be afraid to go into Sephora and ask for help and maybe leave with a couple samples to try. Or if you do purchase a foundation that you don't love you can always return it even after used!

3. MAC eyeshadow in wedge $16.00
This is my favorite go to eyeshadow. I usually use it all over my lid and then just add a shimmery highlight in my tear duct. You can also use it as a transition color for a smokey eye. Also for all the blondes you can use this as an eyebrow powder too!

4. it Cosmetics No-Tug waterproof gel eyeliner in Black $22.00
I love to line my upper water line with black eyeliner. I just feel like it makes my eyelashes look longer and fuller. Finding a eyeliner that doesn't smudge down into the lower water line or stay on all day is tough. This one does the trick though! once I put it on it stays there almost all day (I usually touch up after work if I decide to go out). I got it in my ipsy box a couple months ago and the mini has lasted me forever! Definitely something I will be purchasing the full size of.

5. L'oreal Voluminous mascara $8.49
I have about 5 of these in my makeup drawer. The waterproof black one, Waterproof blackish brown, Non water proof black, Carbon black, And non waterproof blackish brown. I love them all! The waterproof ones I only wear if I know I will be crying or I love to use it when doing bridal party makeup cause once this is on it isn't going anywhere. If you have any problems with mascara smudging I would recommend this. One thing I am not a huge fan of about the waterproof one is that it is close to impossible to get it off. Even once I think I have gotten it all off I still wake up with raccoon eyes.. So I would only recommend this for days you absolutely need waterproof mascara. On days I don't think I will be crying or near water I like to wear the non waterproof one. My favorite one for everyday wear is the blackish brown one cause it looks a lot more natural. I have tried almost every mascara and this is the only one that gives me an amazing amount of volume without it being clumpy. I use about 2 coats and it works like a charm. The best thing about it: the price! a high quality item for a low price.. Cant beat that.
