These are beauty products that I have personally tested and highly recommend. All of them are amazing, otherwise I wouldn’t be listing them here! I’ll be updating the list occasionally, when I feel a product is amazing enough to be added.
I have included some affiliate links in this list, but I would never recommend products I don’t love.
Best Beauty Products
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD – medium to buildable coverage with a natural finish. Works with all skin types and comes in 40 shades. Amazing foundation, great coverage, and gives a flawless look!! It’s a must-try.
NARS All Day Luminous Weightless – Full coverage foundation with 16 hour wear time and a natural finish. Another must-try! Has more of a glowy, luminous finish than the MUFE Ultra HD.
Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer – Super concentrated full-coverage concealer that only takes a pin-dot amount to hide imperfections flawlessly. Completely hides everything you don’t want visible.
Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer – Moisturizing concealer that smooths fine lines and wrinkles while reducing redness. Comes with an applicator which makes concealing a quick and easy job. Covers blemishes and imperfections well and stays on all day!
L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Concealer – The drugstore version of the Clinique concealer! Extremely similar and less expensive. Hides blemishes and imperfections as it evens skin tone. Great alternative!!
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination – Full coverage under eye concealer that brightens, minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and even can be used as a spot concealer all over the face. This stuff is incredible and instantly makes me look more awake and radiant!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles – Great drugstore under eye concealer that smooths fine lines and reduces the look of puffiness while it hides under eye circles. There’s a reason this one is so popular – it’s awesome!
Too Faced Shadow Insurance – Eye primer that helps eyeshadow last all day and look more intense. Crease-free, waterproof, and fade-proof for up to 24 hours. A good eye primer is key to keeping your eyeshadow looking good all day and night!
Urban Decay Primer Potion – My preferred choice when it comes to eye primer. This one comes in a few different finishes that go along with the eye look you want (matte, shimmer, regular). It also provides 24-hour wear, makes shadows look more vibrant, and stays crease-free.
Lorac Pro Palette – My most-used palette! This palette never lets me down in creating a beautiful smokey eye. It has 8 shimmer shades and 8 matte shades. I’ve hit pan on half of the shadows and I’ll be buying a replacement palette when I finish them! Gorgeous shadows!
Too Faced Natural Eyes – 9 neutral shadows that make gorgeous looks. Perfect for the everyday eye whether nude or smokey. I adore this palette and use it often.
Urban Decay Naked – Really, any of the Naked palettes are awesome. I’ve never been disappointed with any of them. They’re great quality and each palette provides a nice range of colors that complement each other. You have to get your hands on at least one of them!
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – This pencil comes in an array of fun colors as well as neutrals (and the blackest black you’ll find). Super creamy and long lasting. Glides on and stays in place for the full day!
L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Gel Liner – Comes with a brush and is easier to apply than liquid liner. Gel liner is my favorite to use. This one is a great drugstore option and it doesn’t dry out quickly like some do.
Laura Geller Inkwell (gel) – Love this gel liner! It’s my favorite and doesn’t dry out either. Super easy to apply and lasts all day. Best eyeliner ever.
NYX Super Fat Marker (liquid) – Good felt tip liquid liner. Makes a clean line that sticks around. Not super wet like many liquid liners, making it easier to apply. When liquid liners are too wet, it’s easier to mess up.
Benefit Roller Lash – My current favorite mascara! Curls and lifts lashes, even short ones. My lashes look longer, thicker, fanned out, and intense. I get that false lash effect with this mascara and I love it!
L’Oreal Voluminous – Adds 5x volume to lashes for a full look with no flaking or clumping. Best drugstore mascara! Whenever I want a cheap mascara, this is the one I get.
Benefit They’re Real – Another great one from Benefit! This one lengthens, volumizes, lifts, curls, and separates to amplify your lashes. It’s a very close second to Roller Lash; some even prefer it. No matter what, I use it frequently because it make my stand out like crazy!
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser – Great basic cleanser that gets the job done! I use this with my Clarisonic. They work perfectly together to remove my makeup and keep my skin clear.
Garnier Micellar Water – This stuff is magical. It’s made to cleanse skin, remove makeup, and refresh. I use it after I remove my makeup with wipes and it gets the last bits of makeup. You think you take all your makeup off with a wipe until you see what this takes off afterwards!!
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – These are the wipes I use and like most. They’re inexpensive and do a good job, but like I said, I always follow up with some micellar water to get everything the wipes missed.
Mario Badescu Drying Cream – I have a whole post about why this stuff is amazing, but basically it conceals and heals blemishes very quickly. Better than any other spot treatment I’ve used and not too expensive.
Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix – Fast-acting spot treatment that reduces breakouts quickly. This one works really well too at minimizing blemishes overnight.
