In today’s post, I’m sharing my holy grail must haves for makeup, some skincare, and hair care!
1 // Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in ‘Pillow Talk’: This is one of my all time favorite everyday lipsticks! The formula is fantastic (goes on like a dream) and is a perfect, creamy/satin matte. Not drying, and looks universally beautiful on everyone! Worth every penny!
2 // Tom Ford Lipstick in ‘Sable Smoke’: Another kick butt lipstick – pricey, but packs a punch. Super hydrating and a beautiful nude shade. I have a hard time finding nude lipsticks that work for me, but this one is IT!
3 // Tarte Lipstick in ‘Salt Lyfe’: Can you tell that I’m a big lip product junkie?! Also a huge fan of this lipstick formula and color! It’s a gorgeous mauvey-pink! Matte, but not drying.
4 // Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Concealer: I’ve been using this concealer for over a year now! It conceals dark circles, doesn’t crease and is pretty weightless. I also like Shape Tape, but only for days where I want to go “all out” on my makeup (special events, going out, etc.) because it’s really heavy! I have the ‘2 Ivory’ shade.
5 // Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in ‘7 Nu Interdit’: This product was my go-to at my old office job! It feels like you’re wearing nothing, doesn’t transfer, isn’t drying, and lasts a while! I love this shade too, which is the perfect everyday color. Kind of like a “my lips but better” shade. Lasts a long time, too, since a little goes a long way!
6 // Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick: I have this long wearing matte lip in FIVE colors! It’s my favorite formula when I need a lip color to last for hours and after eating & drinking. I typically will wear these in the fall/winter months. I have the colors Baci, Carmello, Firenze, Patina and Biscotti.
7 // Charolotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in ‘Pillow Talk’: This is the same shade as #1, but in lip liner form. This lip liner goes with allll of your lipsticks! Besides the darker, bolder ones of course!
8 // Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil in ‘Medium Brown’: This is my all time favorite eyebrow pencil! I also love the Benefit Precisely My Brow pencil, but this one stays put better and doesn’t transfer as easily as the Benefit one. Though the Benefit one is more pigmented and lasts longer.
9 // Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette: This palette launched late this winter, and it’s a GOOD one! I love all of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes, and this one was no exception, and could quite possibly be my favorite one.
10 // Tarte In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette: If you’re looking for a great everyday palette with mostly matte shades and neutral colors, this is it! One of my all time favorite palettes. Great ingredients too, since it’s by Tarte!
11 // Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer: Favorite eyeshadow primer – and YES, it makes a big difference in lasting power!
12 // Lancome Mascara Base: This mascara primer is amazing!!! I currently have lash extensions and am not currently wearing mascara, but when I am, this is a must have. Makes your lashes longer and thicker, and helps with mascara fall out!
13 // Tom Ford Blush in ‘Inhibition’: All time favorite blush and favorite blush shade. This blush lasts all day, is beautifully pigmented and not powdery, and worth every penny!! Seriously! You only need a tiny bit, so this will last you forever. The Inhibition shade is perfect for year round.
14 // Hourglass Bronzer in ‘Luminous Bronze Light’: It took years to replace my NARS Laguna bronzer, but this one took its place as soon as I tried it. I still love that bronzer, but love this one even more!
15 // Laura Mericer Translucent Setting Powder: Holy grail status. Love, love, love this fine setting powder for my foundation and concealer. Not cakey like some powders can be!
16 // Charolette Tilbury Bronze & Glow Contour Duo: Splurge item for sure, but I LOVE this duo. The highlighter is my favorite highlighter of all time. Even if I didn’t like the bronzer (which I do), I would buy this just for the highlighter! The bronzer is a really beautiful natural bronzer.
17 // Chloé Rollerball Perfume: I got this perfume for Christmas and love! I use it for nights or special occasions.
18 // Chanel Perfume: I’ve had this perfume for years and it never disappoints. My sister had it and I immediately added it to my Christmas list! Definitely another stronger one that I like to save for nights/special occasions, but it’s divine. I feel very grown and fancy when I wear this lol!
19 // Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: The best lip product for your lips, EVER! If you struggle with any sort of dry/cracked lips, this will save you!
20 // Caudalie Detox Mask: One of my go-to masks for when my skin is freaking out!
21 // Coola Makeup Primer: A great makeup primer, has SPF and smooths pores; sold!
22 // SUPERGROOP! Unseen Sunscreen: Favorite SPF for your face.
23 // SUPERGROOP! Forever Young Body Butter: This changed the game for me! Sunscreen typically dries out my skin on my body, so this body butter was heaven sent!
24 // Esteé Lauder Double Wear Foundation: I’ve been wearing this in the shade ‘2N1 Desert Beige’ for years. Best full coverage and long lasting foundation out there! It doesn’t budge! I also love the Beauty Blender Bounce Foundation, which comes in a very close second.
25 // Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne: Favorite everyday perfume! Obsessed with this scent. Not too overpowering!
26 // Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Face Mask: Another awesome detox mask – perfect for breakouts!
27 // Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream: Love this body cream, and it smells so good too!
28 // Olaplex Hair Perfector: Sooooo good for dry/damaged hair!!
29 // Olaplex Shampoo: Olaplex has awesome hair products, all around.
30 // Caudalie Beauty Elixir: Favorite makeup setting spray/refreshing mist!
31 // Bumble And Bumble Hair Protector: I apply this to my hair when wet and dry (before curling)!
32 // Coola Anti-Aging Face Serum: This is what I use to tan my face!
33 // Foreo Luna Facial Cleaner Pad: I will use this about 2-3x a week for a deeper clean. My skin is a little too sensitive to use it daily, though. It really deep cleans your skin! Use with a cleanser. This is better than the Clarisonic IMO.
34 // Original Beautyblender: Favorite little tool to apply my foundation and concealer! It’s a magic sponge, and the dupes do not compare.
35 // Invisibobble Hair Rings: Besides silk scrunchies at night time, I use these whenever I have my hair up! Work so well with messy buns too!
36 // Shiseido Facial Cotton: These are wayyyy better on your skin than the cotton rounds that you get at Target. I use these to apply my toner every morning and night.
37 // T3 1.25” Curling Iron: My everyday curling iron!
38 // Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer: I finally got ahold of this guy and I’m very happy with it! Also a big fan of the T3 hairdryer that is also found at Sephora, but this one takes the cake.
39 // Living Proof Full Volume Blast: This stuff is great if you need some extra volume and body!
40 // IGK Dry Shampoo: Hands down my #1 fave dry shampoo! It’s awesome. Also love Kloraine and Living Proof, but this one is the best!
41 // Drybar Conditioner: Love this spray for when my hair is feeling dull and dry (usually day 3-4 hair). Gives it life and softness again!
