You know how you have those certain makeup products that you always go back to? You know, the ones that never fail you!
I try a lot of makeup, but there are special products that just can’t be beat! I am going to share all of those today. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you will probably know all of these already. Here they are!
I went through my collection, and I am sharing only the things that I have repurchased MULTIPLE times. These are things that I don’t want to live without!
Let’s start with my three base products.
I’m a powder foundation girl, and I’ve used Bare Minerals for over 10 years. I even wore it on my wedding day! A few years ago, I stopped using the loose powder and traded it for the pressed version. I love the pressed version more because it isn’t as messy as the loose powder. This compact lasts me a whole year, and I use it pretty much every single day. It gives me the light coverage I want and I LOVE it. I wear the shade 04 Aspen and I use this brush to apply it.
Next is the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. This is the 4th or 5th compact I have purchased of this. This bronzer is matte and only a few shades darker than my foundation. I apply it all over the perimeter of my face and under my cheekbones. I can also use this to contour since it is matte. Bonus – it smells like chocolate!
Lastly is the best concealer I have ever found, the magical Tarte Shape Tape. I have been using this pretty much since it came out, and it’s one of the only concealers that covers my dark circles and doesn’t crease. Love this stuff. I wear the shade Light.
Next, some eye products.
Like the rest of my makeup, I like my brows natural, so I use a powder to fill them in. This Anastasia Brow Powder Duo has been my go-to for 4 or 5 years now. I use a small angled brush to apply a teeny bit of this to my eyebrows using short quick strokes. It fills in the sparse spots and still looks natural. I wear the shade Dark Brown.
Next is my favorite mascara, the L’Oréal Lash Paradise. I love to try mascara and I do have a lot of high-end faves, but for the price and quality, this one takes the cake. It is super black, it lengthens like crazy, adds volume, and holds the curl all day. I have been using this for about 2 years, and I don’t buy anything else.
I don’t wear a lot of black liner or liquid liner, so I go for a dark brown liner. I think it looks a little bit more natural and not so harsh against my fair skin. UD 24/7 Liners are THE BEST, and I have used them for years. I don’t even try other brands. I use them on the upper lashline, lower lashline, the waterline, and they last all day. My favorite shades are Demolition and Bourbon.
On to lips!
You won’t usually find me in a bold lip. I go for the “my lips but better” look. My favorite lipstick of all time is MAC Syrup. It is the perfect sheer and shiny pinky purple, and just looks so nice with my skin tone. It is moisturizing and perfect. I have repurchased this more times than I can remember.
For favorite gloss, it’s hands down the Dior Lip Maximizer. A long time ago, I read an article where Sarah Jessica Parker was raving about this gloss, and I had to try it. As soon as I did, I was hooked! I just like to buy the sheer light pink color, which is all it used to come in, but now they have a bunch of shades. This gloss smells like vanilla, it subtly plumps the lips (feels minty and tingly), and it LASTS. It’s not sticky, and it looks good over any lip liner or lipstick.
Here are swatches of the lippies.

So that is it for all of my repurchased makeup products!
