1. m.a.c strobe cream
M.A.C Strobe cream is perfect for those of you with dry skin. This cream is a mixture between a primer and a moisturizer. It applies beautifully under makeup and leaves you with a radiant complexion all day.
2. URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIMER
This is an eyeshadow primer. I love this product because it is the perfect glossy base for your eyeshadow, and makes your look last all day. This is the color Sin, but Urban Decay’s entire line of eyeshadow primers and great! TIP: be sure to set it with a nude powder before applying the rest of your eyeshadow to ensure it lasts all day.
3. Nivea post shave balm
Weird product to include in a MAKEUP favorites post, right? Think again! This post shave balm makes for the perfect foundation primer (and it’s only $7!). Caution to my oily girls: don’t use too much or else you’ll be blotting all day!
5. Laura Mercier bronzer
This is a great bronzer if you're looking for a sun kissed glow. It's not too dark and not too orange so it is perfect if you're fair skinned.
7. number 7 stay perfect foundation
This foundation is FANTASTIC! 1) It's medium to full coverage. 2) It leaves you with dewy skin. 3) IT'S ONLY $16!! Seriously the best drug store foundation... like, EVER.
9. STILA EYELINER
This eyeliner is great for all types of eye looks. It makes the perfect cat eye and gives you thick or thin liner! It is also pitch black and lasts all day. Stila for the win!
11. Tarte shape tape concealer
If you watch any beauty Youtuber I am 100% positive you've heard of Tarte's Shape Tape Concealer. It is honestly the best concealer on the market . It is SUPER full coverage without looking cakey. Plus, it will cover any imperfections all day long!
13. m.a.c PRO LONGWEAR POWDER
As you can tell I REALLY love this powder... Haha, looks like it's time to repurchase. On days that I need more coverage, I'll apply this powder over my foundation or concealer. This medium to full coverage powder is perfect for everyday wear.
15. Anastasia Beverly Hills glow kits
The Anastasia Beverly Hills glowkits are unreal! Honestly some of the best highlighters out there. Highlighters can be scary, at least for me, because I don't want streaks of glitter on my face. These highlighters are glowy, not glittery! Get swatches and check out my full review here!

6. makeup forever mat velvet foundation
Makeup Forever is famous for their foundations. Their Mat Velvet foundation is matte, full coverage, and long lasting. Sounds perfect, right?
8. Smashbox contour sticks
The Smashbox contour sticks are the perfect cream contour for just about anyone. They work on all skin types and are SUEPR blendable. TIP: Apply these BEFORE powder, otherwise you'll end up with a streaky, patchy contour.... Oh no!
10. TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY BLUSH
If you're looking for a great neutral blush look no further! Tarte is famous for their long lasting amazonian clay blushes. This blush, in the shade ‘exposed,’ complements any makeup look and is perfect for everyday wear. (TIP: another great HOLY GRAIL blush is M.A.C’s ‘Blush All Day.’ It’s the only blush that I completely ran out of!)
12. STILA HUGE extreme LASH MASCARA
I've always been a Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' mascara lover, but recently this Stila mascara has won my heart! The applicator is very similar to the Too Faced one, although a tiny bit smaller. Also, the product doesn't dry out as fast as 'Better Than Sex.' Another reason why I love this product is because you don't have to curl your lashes and you'll still be left with big volume!
14. m.a.c fix+ setting spray
M.A.C Fix+ is a cult favorite in the beauty world! The possibilities with this spray are endless. You can use it as a primer under your makeup, or you can use it as a setting spray over your makeup. This product will leave your skin hydrated and makes your makeup look like skin. TIP: spray this onto your eyeshadow brush and then dip your brush into the shadow. The spray will give you the most amount of color pay off and make your shadow seem 10x more pigmented!
16. morphe palettes
MORPHE is incredible! Seriously one of the best eyeshadow palettes I've ever used. The pigment in these shadows is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Like so so amazing. There is no reason not to try this palette. Why? IT'S ONLY $22! This is the 35F palette, check out all of the palettes here.
