When it comes to makeup, I have to admit, I’m a bit of a beauty junkie. I find myself inside Sephora every time I’m at the mall and I’m always in the makeup aisle at my CVS. I’m like a kid in a candy store! Since I spend a lot of my time trying out new products and playing around with different looks, I wanted to put together a list of some of my favorite products. These are my tried-and-true go to makeup items.
I currently own three of these and I am obsessed! The pen-like applicator makes it’s so easy to use and I find that the stain really lasts all day. It doesn’t dry out my lips and all of the colors they have are amazing. These are perfect for almost any occasion – day or night!
What I really like about this foundation is that it comes in two formulas – one for dry/normal skin and one for oily/combination skin. There are 20 different shades so it’s easy to find a color that’s perfect for you! It’s a lightweight formula, but still has amazing coverage and looks natural.
This really lives up to it’s name! This is my favorite mascara to reach for when I want a natural look for my lashes. The wand really separates the lashes so there aren’t any clumps, but still gives a little bit of fullness. I really like the black-brown shade because it’s not too harsh for a daytime look, but it still makes your eyes look amazing.
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen ($7.80)
I am a big fan of dramatic winged eyeliner for a nighttime “going out” look and I find it very easy to achieve with this eyeliner pen form Revlon. The fine tip point glides across the lid very well and is easy to build with, so this can be used for both natural and dramatic eye makeup. I like how opaque the black is on the lid and the formula is very long lasting so it won’t fade! **Check your campus bookstore for all your CoverGirl necessities!
I use this eyeshadow palette everyday because it’s so simple, but so versatile. It has 6 eyeshadows that are all matte except for the first color (Venus) that has a little shimmer in it. It has everything I need to take me from day to night and the packaging is small enough to take on the go. The pigmentation in the shadows is amazing, they’re easy to blend, and they last all day!
