My 5 everyday makeup products

Hey! So I wanted to share with you guys five of my everyday cosmetic products. Not only do I use these products pretty much every day, but they are my all time favorite products ever! I also use probably way more then 5 products a day but these are just the basics! Let me know what you think!

#1. MAC studio fix: my color NC42
This is my number one favorite product ever. I use this product as my foundation and it's pretty much the only thing I use for coverage. I also literally never leave the house without this product in my purse. I originally used the studio fix fluid which is the liquid version of this product but for some reason I am just not a fan of liquid foundation. This product provides extreme coverage and gives my face that somewhat cakey affect, which i love lol. Because this product is a powder based foundation the key to making this product look good is to make sure you moisturize a lot! If your someone with dry skin then you would probably be better with the liquid foundation but for someone like me with normal skin, this product is amazing. Also, make sure to use foundation primer before applying this product! I used to use the MAC skin prep and prime but my roommate recently told me about MakeupForever HD primer which is 100 times better and my new favorite primer! Definitely try this product out if your someone like me who doesn't like liquid foundation but still loves to have complete coverage. 

#2. Covergirl perfect point plus black eyeliner: color black onyx 
I am obsessed with black eyeliner. Whether it's to fill my water line or make the perfect cat eye, I think I wear this eyeliner every single day. The reason I love this eyeliner compared to others is because it's literally a perfect point every time which is amazing for lining my eyes and making that perfect cat eye. It also comes with an eraser at the end which is sometimes very helpful. I think the main reason I love this product so much is because it's so cheap! For the amount of black eyeliner I use, thank god I found one for such an affordable price with such good quality. I do have a lot of other eyeliners but for some reason I always find myself coming back to this one!

#3. The Urban Decay Naked Palette


This is definitely the best eyeshadow palette ever created on this earth. I used to work at sephora and it was constantly sold out which obviously means its a great product. I honestly hardly ever buy eyeshadows anymore because I'm so addicted to this one. Of course the second I get hooked on this palette, the naked palette 2 has to come out but for some reason I just love this one! 
Okay so the way I wear the colors are: I start with buck in my crease so it's easy for the other colors to blend; smog on my outer corner as well as blended into the crease; virgin and sin mixed on my inner corner; either sidecar or half baked on my actual lid whichever one I feel like that day; then I use naked as a highlight under my brow, really to just blend everything together. Also, if I feel like making it darker I would use darkhorse on the outer corner along with smog. This palette is just so amazing and there are so many varieties of ways to wear the colors!

#4. LORAC special effects mascara
So I came across this mascara when I bought one of Lorac's holiday sample kits that had a full bottle of this mascara. Ever since then, I have been hooked! First of all, the brush on this mascara is amazing and never gets clumpy which is a huge plus. My favorite part about this mascara is the primer. I usually hate mascaras that come with 2 sides because it's so much more work, haha i'm so lazy, but this primer is absolutely amazing. It can seriously make your lashes look twice as long without even putting on the black side. The other side of the mascara is the blackest mascara i have ever used in my life. I don't know if its because of the mixture with the primer and the mascara but there's something about this mascara that i'm obsessed with! Another use of this product is that whenever I wear fake eyelashes, which is alot, I use the black side of this mascara to blend my false lashes and real lashes together to make them look as natural as possible. Even though this isn't the cheapest mascara around, it's definitely a good one to have!

#5. MAC cremesheen glass lipgloss: color "boy bait"


As you can tell by now I did one product from all of the major cosmetic categories; face, liners, mascara, eyeshadow - and of course now I have to do the lips! I chose to talk about MAC's cremesheen glass lipgloss in the color boybait. I seriously change my lip color up all the time, and most of the time I just have on simple chap-stick but this lipgloss is definitely one of my favorites. You can never go wrong with a simple nude lip and a majority of the lipsticks I have actaully go perfect under this lipgloss.
 If your looking to do the full nude lips look: You need to definitely start with MAC lip liner in Naked. Then follow the lipliner with my favorite MAC lipstick in Blankety and then finish off the look with this amazing lipgloss in boybait!




So this is me! But this is basically how I look everyday using all of the products I talked about in this post. Obviously here I have on some major false lashes, I believe these are sephora brand called mink number 051. But seriously I would not lie to you guys, these products are MUST HAVES for everyone!

  16. I looooove the original palette too, but the naked 2 is awesome as well, the eyeshadows are very different, so I think it's a great compliment to the first one :))
