Top 5 Makeup Bag Staples

15 Apr

Hey everyone, Lilia here!  Today ill be sharing with you my Top 5 Makeup Bag Staples. These 5 products are my everyday go-to products that I adore. I don’t usually wear that much makeup during the day, so the products mentioned in this post are pretty much all I use for the most part.

1) MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

$17 US / $21 CA

This concealer comes in a variety of shades so it is really easy to find the right shade for your skin tone! It provides a long lasting coverage that applied nice and smoothly. This lightweight, creamy concealer is great for everyone. I have dark under eye circles and this concealer does a great job of covering them up and overall brightening my eyes. I don’t recommend this product for those with dry skin, since it does look a bit cakey when applied to dry skin

2) BareMinerals SPF 15 Matte Foundation from Bare Escentuals

 $28 US /$36 CA

I absolutely love this foundation since it provides a great long lasting coverage and it works amazingly with my skin, I have written a product review on this foundation so click here to read more about this product because i highly recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing foundation.

3) Smashbox Liquid Liner 

$22 US/ $25 CA

Before this liquid liner, i had always used L’Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner however after I had purchased this product I will never go back to any other liquid liner. This liner stays put literally all day. My eyeliner looks fresh all day up until the moment I take off my makeup at night. This felt tip pen liner applies smoothly and easily, perfect for that classic cat eye.

4) Urban Decay Primer Potion 

$20 US/ $24 CA

I don’t use eye shadow everyday but when i do wear shadow, this eye primer keeps it looking fresh all day, without creasing. I haven’t tried any other type of primer like the Too Faced Shadow Insurance , so I cannot compare this product to any other, but it works great! I also have oily eyelids but if I just apply this primer (with no shadow over top) it totally fixes the problem.

5) Falsies Mascara by Maybelline 

Last Product! I find that drug store brand mascaras work just as great a higher price mascara from Sephora or MAC. This mascara makes my lashes look longer and voluminous, without clumping. I like the winged brush because it applies easier than just a regular brush. Many other drug store mascaras are great like: Lash Blast by Covergirl, Voluminous by Loreal and Colossal by Maybelline, however I really prefer this mascara over any other drug store brand!

Hope you have enjoyed the mini review of these products and have found this helpful in finding your next favorite makeup! Don’t forget to Like/Comment/ Follow 🙂
