It’s hard to narrow down my favorite makeup products to just five because there are so many great ones and they are always changing. I am mostly a creature of habit but I have learned about a few “new” products that I really feel are worth mentioning…
#1 Benefit Cosmetics, The POREfessional, Pore Primer
I had never used a primer under my foundation until a few years ago and let me tell you, it is a game changer. This oil free formula is best applied to a clean and moisturized face by adding a thin layer and blending with your fingertips. It compliments all skin tones and helps to blur fine lines, minimize pores and helps makeup stay put all day.
#2 Nars Afterglow Lip Balm
There are so many great lip balms and I love these sheer nudes that Nars has come out with. They are super hydrating and are infused with antioxidants to nourish and protect the lips. These are beautiful when you want to add a hint of color or you can even use them over your favorite lipstick for extra moisture and added shine.
#3 Mac Love Me Lipsticks
Argan Oil infused lipstick that delivers an instant hit of powerful color and all-day moisture so you fall in love at first swipe. My two favorite shades right now are “Daddys Girl” and “Laissez-Faire’. These two colors are my favorite combination to wear with almost anything. I usually add a little gloss over the top and my favorite lip liner to keep it all in place.
#4 Estee Lauder Spice Lip Liner Pencil
This is my absolute favorite lip liner and it glides on effortlessly and stays put. It is the best nude color and very versatile with pink and neutral tone lipsticks which I wear most of the time.
#5 Benefit They’re Real Mascara, Jet Black
A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts and separates lashes. It does not smudge or dry out and it comes with a specially designed brush that reveals lashes you never knew you had. Lashes don’t look real with this amazing mascara.
