Makeup All time fav's

          My Makeup FAV RAVE'S

So I am constantly changing the brands of makeup I use. I am not the girl who finds a brand and decides that's the end all be all. With that said there are a few products that I favor and make sure that there is always a backup in my makeup drawer, I want to share with you junkys out there my fav's!


Make Up Forever High Definition Primer

I don't think i've ever had a love of any makeup product as much as this. First let me say It feels absolutely amazing on your skin, like wrapping yourself in silk! For those who don't know what primer is or does, it basically preps your skin for your makeup . It also helps with masking large pores which for me is a problem on my nose. *sigh* Anyway, I have tried quite a few from high end to drugstore brands and for me this is the creme de la creme. I buy mine at Sephora because we have one close to where I live. If you do not live near a Sephora store 1st let me say i'm sorry, no beauty junky should be without one. You can definitely go on their website and order it. They have some that are made for different skin types so just see what works best for you. I use the plain jane one because I have pretty normal skin (minus those stupid large nose pores). On days that I don't wear makeup I will sometimes just wear this by itself because I feel like it just makes the overall appearance of my skin to be better.

NARS illuminator in Super Orgasm
My next fav rave is Nars illuminator. It is the most beautiful coral/peach base with a gold shimmery effect to it. Let me just say this I bought the 1.1 oz tube and it last FOREVER because you only need the tiniest amount. I use it on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose and have found that for me thats enough. You should definitely do whatever works for you.

Make Up Forever
High Definition Powder
0.17 oz

This powder is so great for girls that love a photo op! It sets your makeup fantastically and really gives your skin a flawless finish. I don't use it daily but whenever I do I always get told how nice my skin is. So its a great to have this in your makeup collection!

Sephora Moonshadow Baked PaletteIn the Nude

I know there are tons of great palettes out there, but for me this one embodies everything I love. It is a complete nude set full of creme's, taupe, brown's, gold's and plums. They all have a shimmer to them which I like on my eyelids because I have green eyes but they definitely have gold in them that gets picked up so well by the shimmer/gold tones in this shadow palette. Whats even more exciting is that this palette is only $30 which is a steal for 10 shadows YAY!

Smashbox High Definition Concealer
0.27 fl. oz
Ok so I am not a girl who loves concealer. For me it usually it feels cakey and I hate that feeling!! Thats why when I found this Smashbox one I was excited, it is very light and wearable. Now if you are looking for massive amounts of coverage this would not be the concealer for ya, but if your like me and you just want to cover up some darkness under the eyes or a small blemish/imperfection this is the one!

Make Up For Ever
Waterproof Creme Color
Aqua Cream /shade 13
This is another one that lasts me forever because I use it as a highlighter on my brow bone and right on the inner corners of my eyes. but its beautiful and light reflective and really brings out and brightens up the whole eye area!

Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara
Liquid Black
6.6 oz.
I believe wholeheartedly that most women who love makeup also have that one item that they LOVE LOVE. Its the item you would choose if you were only allowed one thing. (thank the beauty gods that's not reality huh junky's) For me that item is Mascara! I have used more mascara than probably any other person on the planet. I have used everything from Dior Show to NYC brand at the drugstore, and for me Buxom is top shelf for best all around mascara. The first reason I love this one so much is that it eliminates the need for having one mascara for volume and another for length because the wand brush is retractable! If you have the brush fully extended that is where you are going to get your lash length from. If you retract the wand to the shorter setting , that is where you are going to get your va va volume lashes. Can we say AH-MA-ZING!! If thats not enough to convince you Buxom also defines  your lashes so well, that while you will have amazing volume and length , and it will look like your own lashes! Not like you caked on 5lbs of mascara , and not with a clumpy lash anywhere!! FAV RAVE! FAV RAVE!!! 

So there you have it, those are my makeup staples! I will do other makeup reviews but I wanted to start by showcasing the products I have valued the most and stood the test of time for me. So if you have ever wanted to try any of these out but weren't sure , in my opinion you cant go wrong with this group!


  1. I've used most of these and they are great products! The make up forever high definition powder is one of my all time favorite products!
