Posted on


NYX BB Cream: If your looking for that everyday light wear, i personally use this one in the shade "Nude". It's really light and offers light coverage for an everyday wear. I like to apply it with a beauty blender, however it works great with a brush too. Personally, i don't like to apply it with my fingers. ($12.99 Target)

Maybelline Better Skin Foundation: If you want something more on the heavier side this works great! It looks and feel like your own skin, that's a plus right?! It comes in a variety of shades and it is easy to blend. ($8.99 Target)

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer: When you want to add a little more coverage on those rough days, try the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. It offers great coverage at an affordable price. The consistency is creamy and easy to to blend in the skin. ($4.99 Walmart)

NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Powder Foundation:Honestly, i use this as a setting powder to set my NYX BB Cream. Ever so lightly, I just dust it across my face. There are some powders out there that just make you want to scratch at your face, but this is a light feeling powder that at the same time will offer more coverage. ($9.49 Target)

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer: I swear this is my holy grail product when it comes to filling in my eyebrows! It's easy to work with and it comes with a spooly on the other end of the pencil. Also, i heard it's a great dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz! ($7.99 Target)

E.L.F. Blush Palette: Hellloooooo beautiful rosy cheeks! I can't stress enough how amazing this palette is!! There are 4 different blushes to chose from, from the palette. They blend beautiful in the skin, but BE LIGHT HANDED WITH IT!! I have looked like a clown in some occasions, because i was heavy handed. ($4.29 Target)

E.L.F Counter Palette: HOLY GRAIL PALETTE! I just love it! It last on the skin, the colors are bendable and you get 2 counter shades on the bottom, 1 setting powder and 1 highlight powder. (P.S the highlight powder is great for a daily suttle glow!) ($5.99 Target)

Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection: I personally love the Earthy Elements Palette! There are 6 different to chose from. The pigmentation on them is great and it is easy to blend. ($8.99 Target)

L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara: ANOTHER HOLY GRAIL ITEM!!! The bomb feeling you get when you finish applying mascara is what i definitely feel after using this. My eyelashes do not curve at all, plus I don't have the beautiful almond shape eyes. I am 25 years old with hooded eyes and ugh! It has definitely been a challenge to find the right mascara. I love how this lifts my eye lashes and makes my eyes more awake. Not only that the lift lasts pretty much all day. ($7.60 Walmart)

Cocokind Organic Rosewater Facial Toner: My forever setting spray. I have tried from Urban Decay All Nighter to NYX Matte and Dewy setting spray and none of those items can compare to this one. I started using it as my night time routine (which i still do because it is a toner) and i decided to test it out one day as a setting spray. It sets the make up beautiful and it makes it last! It just gives you a healthy glow, and it is hydrating. ($16.99 or your nearby Harmon Face Value Discount Store)

Beauty Products:

L'Oreal Paris Clay Masks: I must say i am a huge fan of the Detox one! There are three to chose from which are, Detox & Brighten, Exfoliate & Refine Pores, and Mask Purify & Mattify. I only tried the detox and brightening one. I typically use it on my whole face, however in some days i do like to put it just around my mouth because i do have uneven skin tone in that area. You see instance results the minute you wash it off. ($9.99 Target)

St. Ives Scrub Blemish Control Apricot: After wearing makeup all day, i love to get home and just scrub it all away by using this scrub. I feel like i'm removing every dirt and grim that is in my face. Not only that it helps control my blemishes which is a win win! ( $3.52 Target)

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: LOVE THIS! Those day's where I am just too lazy to scrub my face (don't judge me we've all done it!) , this is so handy! It removes mascara, eyeshadow, everything! Not only that, your left with feeling hydrated once your done. ($4.49 Target)

Vitamin E Cream by Cococare: I love how hydrated and soft my skin fells after this!! Not only that, Vitamin E is a must have for skin care! I don't have a day time cream or night cream. I just use this everyday, day and night! ($4.29 Bed Bath and Beyond)

Palmers Coconut Body Oil: HOLY GRAIL! I ditched body lotion and replaced it with this. It's amazing, it leaves my skin silky soft! Not only that, I do like to put it under my eyes for under eye wrinkles, and on my eyebrows to stimulate hair growth.($4.99 or your nearby Harmon Face Value Discount Store)

All these items are all items that i have personally tried and continue to use each day! Give it a try and tell me what you guys think!!!
