Makeup Recommendations

Base Products

Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer

This primer has been my go-to for years. It is like a gel-moisturizer in consistency and keeps my foundation on and looking fresh.

It Cosmetics CC Cream

I love this for days where I need a bit more coverage, but still want to wear a CC cream. It can be built up with a brush, or sheered out a little bit by using a damp beauty sponge.

Supergoop! CC Cream

You guys already know this Supergoop! CC is my daily go-to. Light-medium coverage and looks like SKIN. I also love the added SPF 35.

Ilia Beauty True Skin Serum Foundation

My favorite clean beauty foundation. This is a solid medium coverage and is pretty hydrating.  I would recommend this for normal-dry skin types.

Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation

This is my go-to event foundation that is FULL coverage. I love that the teeeniest bit goes the longest way, so you barely have to use a pump for your face, making it look not cakey. This has a radiant finish and would work well for most skin types.

Concealers

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Illumination Concealer

This It Cosmetics concealer is my favorite under eye concealer that is full coverage, yet extremely hydrating. I use a tiny bit of this and blend it out with my ring finger. I always set it with a light touch of power to ensure it doesn’t crease.

Screen Shot 2019-04-21 at 5.55.00 PM
Kaja Beauty Don’t Settle Concealer

This is my go-to light-medium coverage concealer. It is so light on the skin, you won’t even know it’s there!

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.07.55 PM
Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Long Wear Concealer

This is my ride-or-die medium-full coverage concealer. It blends like a dream and I love it for under my eyes and on my face (big winner). It doesn’t get dry on my under eyes and really helps conceal any unwanted blemishes/sun spots.

Eyes

Ilia Beauty Limitless Lash Mascara

Finally! A clean beauty mascara that makes my lashes long/thick as heck, separates, and doesn’t flake or smudge throughout the day (and workouts).

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 5.30.02 PM
Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick

These eye shadow sticks have become a staple in my beauty collection and daily routine. Just swipe on, blend out with your finger and GO. Currently obsessing over the “intense” and “chrome” colors. No flaking or creasing!

Cheeks

Kosas Cream Blush Duo

This is a recent (within the past few months) discovery of mine. These cream and blush duos look STUNNING on the skin and give such a healthy and dewy glow. Perfect for daily wear or no-makeup make looks. Bonus- totally these are CLEAN and skincare-infused.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.08.55 PM
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

These are the best powder blushes on the market, in my humble opinion. They give such a pretty and luminous flush to the cheeks and there are so many stunning shades to choose from.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.09.11 PM
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer

This is the “IT” bronzer if you are looking for a luminous, bronzey look (Summer’s coming!!). The baked formula goes onto the skin flawlessly and never looks muddy. Wore this on my wedding day!

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.29.19 PM
Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Highlighter

This highlighter formula is an oldie, but goodie. It can be worn more natural, or built up to an intense glow. I always go back to this no matter how many highlighters make it into my collection.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 8.36.00 PM
Ilia Soft Focus Finishing Powder (Transluscent)

This is my go-to transluscent powder that I use to set my concealer and my face. I love that it is clean and never looks cakey.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.15.48 PM
Charlotte Tilbury Highlighting Wand

This highlighting wand is the most stunning cream highlighter formula I own. I hate the packaging, but can look past it because the glow it gives truly looks like it came from within (if I lived a life only eating veggies and drinking tons of water). If you can swing it, I definitely would pick this up!

Lips

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat

CT lip liners are my favorite formula on the market. They glide on, but stay for such a long time. My favorite everyday shade is “pillow talk”- it is the perfect pinky nude that will pair with any lip product.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.28.18 PM
Milk Makeup Kush Lip Balm

Loving this tinted lip balm at the moment. Hydrating and gives a touch of color. I also love the slight minty taste to it.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.29.41 PM
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb

Hands down, my favorite gloss ever. It is the PERFECT universally flattering shade and provides the prettiest shine to the lips.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.16.22 PM
Kosas Lipstick

This lipstick has quickly become one of my favorites. It is hydrating, yet totally pigmented, and lasts a long time. My lips never dry out with these!

Skincare Recommendations

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

This has been my go-to cleanser for about a year. I cannot live without it. This would work for all skin-types, even those that are sensitive. It also can act as a quick 10-minute mask!

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.07.41 PM
Indie Lee CoQ10 Toner

This toner is EVERYTHING, especially if you have dry skin. It smells like a spa (all natural fragrance) and keeps my skin clear and balanced. A must-have for my routine.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 8.28.46 PM
Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoliator

This is my favorite physical exfoliator at the moment! It contains micro-fine particles to slough off dead skin cells and keep my skin feeling baby smooth.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.13.31 PM
Fresh Beauty Lip Balm

This balm LIVES by my side. I keep one at my desk and one in my purse because I hate going without it. Definitely a stand-out Fresh product.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.28.37 PM
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

There is something about this serum that I just cant get enough of. It is hydrating and gives my skin a true glow. It layers well under all products I have used. A MUST in my skincare routine.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 8.26.55 PM
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum

This Vitamin-C serum is my favorite I’ve tried. I think this would be best for those who have normal-dry skin types, and even if you are sensitive to Vitamin C products. I notice the dark spots and freckles on my face are less pigmented when I consistently use this product.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.06.48 PM
Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Antipollution Sunshine Serum

If you are going to buy a Drunk Elephant product, this is the one. This bronzing serum gives your complexion an instant bronze glow. I mix in a pump with my moisturizer or SPF and my face is instantly brought to LIFE.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 5.28.37 PM
Biossance Squalane and Omega Repair Cream

If you have been following me this past year, you know that this moisturizer is my holy grail. Fragrance-free, hydrating, and so friendly to my sensitive skin. This. is. IT. I have purchased 3-4 of these if that gives you a sense of how good this product is!

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.27.13 PM
Youth to the People Dream Mask

This sleeping mask has become part of my weekly routine. I sub it in place of my nighttime moisturizer and wake up with hydrated, glowing skin. I can’t stress how good this sleeping mask is.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.07.25 PM
Indie Lee Clearing Mask

If you are battling breakouts or congestion, this mask is for you. It is sulfur-based and acts to reduce inflammation and heal the skin. Bonus, it doesn’t dry my skin out like most acne masks do.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.12.32 PM
Ren Overnight Recovery Balm

Another sleeping mask that I can’t live without. This is a balm consistency that breaks down into an oil-formula once worked onto the skin. I use this whenever my skin is acting up or is inflamed/irritated. I always wake up the next morning with soothed and hydrated skin.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 8.27.06 PM
Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

This is my go-to AHA/BHA night serum. I see a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin when using this product consistently. I also have far less breakouts since using this serum! I use a pump under moisturizer every other night, but you can use nightly if you have less sensitive skin.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.12.21 PM
Ren Clean Screen Mattifying Face Sunscreen SPF 35

This has become my go-to sunscreen this past month. It is a mineral-based SPF that has a matte finish. However, do not fear, I have dry skin and this works great for me. Once applied, it has a little bit of a tacky finish, so it works really well as a makeup primer. This would work well for most skin types.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 7.12.09 PM
Ren AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum

This body serum has CHANGED my scaly (tmi, sorry) legs. I love using this at night to hydrate and exfoliate the skin on my body. It smells like oranges and leaves my skin feeling so smooth the next morning.

Self Tanners

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 10.38.17 PM
Coola Anti Aging Face Tanning Serum

This is by far my favorite self-tanner for my face. It doesn’t break me out and provides such a pretty glow. I apply about two pumps to my cleansed face and down my neck.

Screen Shot 2019-04-18 at 10.37.07 PM
Isle of Paradise Self Tan Drops

These are a crowd favorite for good reason. These little drops are so easy to incorporate into your existing skincare routine. All you need to do is mix a few drops into your moisturizer and apply. I like these best when used lightly two nights in a row. I use about three-four drops per limb. *Yes, you can use these on your face!*
