5 Makeup Must-Haves

When it comes to the land of beauty products, trying to narrow down what actually works can be overwhelming to say the least. Stepping into Sephora often feels like a whole new world- the uncharted, somewhat intimidating waters can be difficult to navigate for even the most seasoned of makeup-lovers. In reality, shopping for new beauty products should be fun and stress-free! I’ve done most of the stressing for you so you can relax on that next Sephora run and focus on the fun stuff only, like which new lipstick shade to try for spring.


As a fashion & lifestyle blogger, I’m always on the hunt for the newest and best products. I also am constantly having my makeup professionally done or doing it myself; I’ve had to learn a lot of tips and tricks from the pros because I am no expert! I love keeping my beauty routine minimal because I’m also (and most importantly!) a mom, which means getting ready time is few and far between.


After much trial and error, I’ve found the five beauty products I cannot live without. And chances are, if you try them, you’ll fall in love, too!

1. Make Up Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation– For everyday wear, this foundation is light yet has amazing coverage. It also stays on all day, especially when paired with the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer. A good primer is also key!


2. NYX Bright Idea Illuminating Stick– Run this down the brim of your nose and along your cheekbones for the prettiest glow. You’ll look like a goddess who’s been soaking up the sun all day (but without the damaging UV effects!).


3. Dior Star Concealer– I couldn’t live without this concealer, no joke. It’s a bit of a splurge at $36 a pop but worth every penny- say goodbye to even the darkest of under-eye circles forever!


4. Laura Mercier Silk Creme Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation– This is, hands down, my all-time favorite foundation. It has maximum coverage and gives an airbrushed effect, so I use it primarily for photoshoots or when I really want to get all glammed up.

5. NYX Sculpt and Highlight Face Duo– For the girl who loves to contour, this one’s for you. Use it along the top of your forehead, cheekbones, each side of your nose, and jawline to create subtle definition and enhance that naturally gorgeous face you’ve got goin’ on.
