Hello! I thought I would write my first blog post using a tag that was made popular round the world by Jaclyn Hill. She named this the “ride or die” tag, and while I’m not a fan of that quote, I still liked it enough to share my makeup favorites as of this moment!
Let’s begin, shall we?
My all-time favorite primer has to be the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. I find that its not too harsh; when its applied it feels very comfortable and smooth on your fingers and face.
That being said, during cooler weather I much prefer to wear my beloved BECCA Backlight priming filter. It is just beautiful and the same can be said about texture and application. I only use this when its really cold outside as I’m usually very oily.
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + foundation has been my ultimate favorite for about a year now. I like that when applied with fingers/beauty blender it isn’t as mattifying and during the summer I apply with a brush.
MAC Prolongwear Concealer. This stuff is just golden. Doesn’t cake, doesn’t move. A winner.
Laura Mercier Transluscent Loose Setting power is awesome. I use a beauty blender to apply it in my t-zone area and underneath the eyes.
This is a hard one as I like to collect blushes but I haven’t found one I can say is my “ride or die.” If I had to pick just one, I would pick MAC Lovejoy. It just goes with everything.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzing powder. I’ve used it on and off several years now and I will continue to repurchase it.
I can’t say I have an ultimate favorite but my MaryLoumanizer by theBalm is my most used… so…
Le Volume de Chanel. Works wonders for these straight, short lashes!
MAC Modesty is my all-time favorite lipstick! The cremesheen formula is amazing. I’ve gone through several of these.
Say what you will about Kylie Jenner, but her liquid lipstick in the shade Pumpkin is my absolute favorite!
The Buxom glosses, White Russian, in particular, is a favorite. I’ve actually used one up!
I don’t think I have an ultimate favorite, but my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette holds a special place in my heart as I used it for several of my wedding shoot occasions.
I hardly do my eyebrows as they are bushy and have a mind of their own, but i use Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium to attempt to tame them.
Urban Decay All-Nighter setting spray.
Viktor & Rolfe Flowerbomb!
Phew! The list was so long. If some categories weren’t mentioned, its because I rarely use them, such as lashes. Although I do need to try using them more often. What are your favorite makeup items? Let me know!
P.s. – I have also just made a YouTube channel! When content is uploaded I shall let you know via this website and through Instagram. I may upload this tag as a video for my first video!
