Let’s be real- we all have our favorite players when it comes to the Skin/Makeup product game, and I am no different. There are days where I feel like I might actually do some shady shit if I were to find out that suddenly my favorite primer had been discontinued. Of course, my favorite palettes change daily and I am always, always, always playing around with different liners, but there are 7 products that I literally could not do my skincare/makeup routine without. Not only do I have a small, probably unnecessary to some, stockpile of each, but hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
1) Too Faced Hangover Good in Bed Hydrating Serum
It is a MUST have in my personal makeup bag and pro-kit at all times. It offers supercharged moisture to even the driest and flakiest canvases. I’m obsessed.
2) GlyMed Plus Gentle Facial Wash
Ideal for exfoliating and purifying most complexions, but especially sensitive skin! It’s unscented, oil-free, and non-comedogenic. The best part? It contains 10% Glycolic Acid to encourage skin renewal, resulting in a more youthful look; which I am totally here for!
3) Huda Beauty Buff & Blend Facial Brush
Gives you the most perfect airbrush finish every.single.time! I’ve used it with multiple foundations and the result is still just as fabulous. I have tested my fair share of foundation brushes, and this one takes the cake for me every time, hands down!
4) Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
If I told you that you could apply your makeup and then set it for at least 16 hours, why would you even waste your time trying any other setting spray on the market? The weightless, vegan mist actually lowers the temp of your makeup to seriously lock it in place. It’s a no brainer for me. I have to have at least 3 at any given time on reserve, just in case!
5) DiorShow Blackout Mascara
There is literally nothing else on the market that can produce the results that this mascara can. Whether someone has amazing lashes to begin with, or barely anything, this guy is the real MVP of the mascara game. I will never ever not have it in any kit of mine. I even have travel sizes hidden in different compartments of my kits just in case something happens to my full size tube. It doesn’t dry out, it doesn’t flake off, and the applicator wand is to die for.
6) Anastasia Brow Wiz
I am a sucker for a good brow pomade, but this little guy has been a game changer for me. It has convinced me that some people can get away with detailing with just a pencil. It allows you to create perfect hairlike strokes, and the smudge proof formula locks it in all day! Sold.
7) Tweezerman Ultra Precision Slant Tweezers
All tweezers are the same, right? Absolutely not. And they shouldn’t be treated as such! My must have tweezers are these bad boys and none other. There is zero other replacement in my mind. They’re durable, they’re slanted for precision plucking, and they’re lightweight to boot. Buy them and buy them now!
