My holy grail makeup products

If you’re looking into purchasing some new items to add to your makeup drawer allow me to suggest a few things. I’ve been a makeup addict since I could get my hands on the stuff, and through the years I have found some gems that work great for almost anyone whether you’re a beginner or a makeup fiend.

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW pomade

I’ve been using this stuff for years. Even though I regularly try new brow products that come out, I keep going back to this one. It’s easy to adjust how much you use depending on your desired look (hint: a little goes a ridiculously long way). I’m also a fan that a pot of this lasts a very long time. I can typically go a little over six months before needing to consider buying another. I use this along with an angled brush and I can achieve any brow look I want from soft and fluffy to angular and intense. There’s also a large range of colour options to cater to anyone’s desired eyebrow shade.

Fenty Beauty Flyliner in ‘Cuz I’m Black

I’m always on the search for the next best eyeliner. I’m someone who wears some form of a cat eye on most days so as you can imagine I’ve gone trough A LOT of eyeliner products. The Fenty Flyliner has been my favourite for the last year because it has an easy to maneuver felt tip and a jet black inky look. This product doesn’t come out watery or streaky and it doesn’t dry out after only a week or two of use. If you’re not a fan of the inky look a little bit of black eye shadow patted on top will make it matte and not ruin your liner.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick

These matte liquid lipsticks are some of the longest lasting I’ve come across. They’re not drying although I do suggest putting on a lip balm before applying because while they won’t dry out the lips, they won’t moisturize them either. It has a very thin consistency for those of us who don’t like the thick gooey consistency of most liquid lipsticks. If you’re on the hunt for a nude lip Huda Beauty has a crazy amount of shades. While this lipstick will eventually come off after eating and drinking I like that it doesn’t come off patchy and it slowly fades in an unnoticeable manner. I can usually get about eight hours out of this lipstick before it starts coming off and I really don’t need it to stay on longer than that without any reapplications.

Nars The Multiple in Orgasm

The idea behind this product is that because it’s a cream you can use it as a blush, lip colour or even an eyeshadow. The consistency is really creamy and smooth and it is a (almost) universally flattering shade on all skin tones. This product is great for travel since it’s multi use and in really convenient packaging. The colour is buildable which allows you to go for a more subtle and natural look or you can amp it up and go bold. If you’re new to the world of blush I highly recommend this blush since it’s so easy to blend out and it’s very forgiving if you end up being too heavy handed for your liking.

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Glaze in Worth the Wait

I was hesitant to buy things from the Marc Jacobs brand for a long time because the price is a little higher than other brands like Urban Decay and Fenty. If you’re willing to splurge, this highlight is the way to go. Although it’s a few dollars more than the average highlighter the pan is huge and you’re definitely getting your money’s worth here. I love this highlighter for when I’m not wanting a glittery look. Don’t get me wrong there is some shimmer in here but it creates more of a glass skin look than a chunky glittery one. I’ve always struggled with highlights because I’m a very pale human being. I love gold hues in highlights but it always looked like costume makeup on me which at the time was not my desired look. I love this highlight because it does have a slight hint of gold but it’s a cool-toned gold which is much more flattering for those of us that don’t have warm toned skin. I also love how natural this highlight looks, it goes with almost any makeup look and it’s not overpowering like many highlighters can be. This shade in particular is probably catered towards people with lighter skin but I’d love to see what it looks like on someone with a darker complexion. Because it’s more of a natural glow and not a highly white pigmented highlight I think it could be flattering on several skin tones.
