Currently | My Go-To Products

For a while I felt like I was changing up products left and right. Bases weren't quite right, concealers were never leaving me totally satisfied, and bronzer was a whole different story. After the new year, a break from spending, and really doing some digging - I found a whole set of products that are totally perfect. It's hard to tell in this photo, but these bad boys are used every day and in less than pristine condition! But hey, I find that to be a great thing when it comes to makeup - it's the sign of an amazing product.

The Base

For my base I start by priming with two primers. I like the blurring and perfecting properties of the Urban Decay Primer all over and then use the Becca Backlight Priming Filter around my cheekbones. I then buff in the One and Done which is a lightweight base that helps to even my skin tone. Final step is concealer which I apply with my beauty blender.

The Eyes

I rotate between two different looks most days - either I go for a dramatic cat flick or I go for full on, thick spider lashes. No matter what, I'm using my Bow Brow and the MAC Extended Lash Play on my lower lashes. For dramatic liner days I use the Buxom mascara, this one is lengthening and more of a wet formula. The Pür Fully Charged mascara is perfect for no-liner days when I want a lot of drama. It's thick, super dark, and perfect for layering up.

The Powders

Every day I used the Make Up For Ever Pro Bronze Fusion to give my face some all over color. I then rotate between Charlotte Tilbury First Love and NARS Douceur for blush. They are both super neutral pinks that are very easy to wear. I then rotate between two highlighters - Champagne Pop and Moonstone. Some days I mix them if I want a super dramatic look.


Like Monday's post showed, I've been staying very neutral on the lips lately. I've been wearing one of the two Marc Jacobs shades and almost always throwing on the Buxom gloss in Hot Toddy. Occasionally I'll grab one of my Kylie LipKits (True Brown or Koko K) if I want to change it up a bit!

What are your go-to every day products? Leave me your top three in the comments so I can check them out!
