There are so many beauty products out there that beauty gurus claim to be their holy grail products. As a makeup artist, all of the products that I’m going to talk about on this list are products that I trust on my skin, but products that I’ve used on my clients’ faces and always had success stories to share. SO, here we go!
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is the BEST makeup remover I’ve ever used. Seriously, I save so much money on using this and not using makeup wipes anymore. I use this to clean my skin in the morning, to take off my makeup, and to clean my skin at night. It does an amazing job to taking off makeup + has helped me to clear up my skin!
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer is honestly so great at filling in my pores. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, or heavy. It also helps to blur the imperfections on my skin, which is great. The $10 travel size has lasted me a whole year!
Dermacol Full Coverage Foundation is one of the best, most full coverage foundation that I’ve ever gotten my hands on. I actually have a video review of my first impressions when applying this foundation, which you can watch if you click here.
Coastal Scents 88 Color Eyeshadow Palette is a great palette to have because of the amazing amount of colors you get to choose from. You can create so many looks with this palette, from a natural smokey eye to a SFX alien. All that, with an affordable price tag!
Rimmel Stay Matte Primer is an amazing primer that’s severely underrated. This is my go-to primer for my skin on a daily basis, no matter what type of foundation I’m wearing. I also use this primer on client’s who are going to a school dance and plan on working up a sweat, as this primer really helps to keep their foundation matte and satin looking!
NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer is a great full-coverage concealer that doesn’t leave me looking cakey or too creasy. And in all honesty, it’s only $4.99, so it’s super affordable, which is amazing for the quality of this concealer. NYX coming through again. 👏🏻
ELF Cosmetics Moonlight Pearl highlighter is everything a makeup lover could ever want or need. Seriously, whenever I wear this highlighter, I get a whole ton of compliments on my highlighter! This will give me a blinding glow if I pile it on, but if I can also achieve a subtle glow with this highlighter. It’s a $4 MUST HAVE!
