Makeup Products I Use Every Day


L-R: Jane Iredale Bronze A Go-Go Bronzing Powder - I got this in a gift bag during fashion week, I use it to contour my cheekbones and give my cheeks a bit of a bronze-y glow. Perfect for spring and summer!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 - goes on smoothly and helps to conceal the dark circles under my eyes. It doesn't give full coverage, it's a light-to-medium coverage concealer but that's okay because I find the full coverage ones way too cake-y. To see my review and a comparison to Cle de Peau's $70 (yes, SEVENTY DOLLARS!) concealer click here.

MAC Painterly Paint Pot - I use this as an eye shadow base. (I prefer it over Urban Decay's Primer Potion, sorry guys, I know a lot of you love UD's primer!) It's very creamy, easy to apply and prevents my eye shadow from caking and wearing off.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in C2 - I've been using this since I was sixteen! Like the name states, this is a powder and foundation in one and doesn't cake or seep into my pores like a normal foundation would. It's long-lasting and gives me a flawless finish. I will use this forever unless MAC comes out with an even better product.

MAC Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack - This is a pen-style liquid eye liner that is easy to apply, even if you have a shaky hand like me! It's the best liquid liner I've tried and has great staying power.

NARS Blush in Orgasm - The perfect light pink blush and a favorite of many.

These are the makeup products I use every single day but they're not the only products I use, just my favorite. As you can see, I use a lot of MAC products! It helps that I now have my MAC Pro card and get a sweet discount ; ). 

What makeup products do you use every day? I'd love to know! Leave a comment in the comment section below!

I love Mac's paints better than UD too, they're thicker and way better. I also use Studio Fix foundation and have since I was 19 .. best foundation ever! Oh, and I also use the Orgasm Super version (just orgasm with sparkles) ;)

I love Mac, they have such amazing products. I use their pink frost eyeshadow as highlighter all the time. I should check out some of their other stuff because I've always just bought eyeshadows and lipsticks there

I see you are another Mac lover but to be honest I only use them for color, meaning lips or nails and I love love their mascara's! For my face, I am a bare mineral girl but in winter I will switch to foundation, and lately I am loving Dior's latest one as well as its concealer, you should really give it a try...loved your post, might do one soon too about what I use ;)

my mac concealer is definitely a part of my everyday makeup along with blush, lip balm, lip gloss, and mascara. ;) i've been trying out different blushes lately though, and i think i definitely have to get a nars blush in orgasm -- everyone loves it! :)

Love the Nars blush, seems to be universally flattering on so many skin tones too!

EMR said...

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, MAC Pink Swoon Blush, MAC Bountiful Brown eyeliner, Espresso eyeshadow to fill in my brows, clear brow gel (the brand always changes!) and Avon SuperSHOCK mascara. Wow! I can't believe I use that on my face every day... crazy!

I neglect orgasm too much, I ought to use it more often! Thank you for sharing!

MAC's painterly paint pot is a MIRACLE product! Srsly, it's the best base for powder shadows and it never creases...way better than UD's primer potion and and Too Faced Shadow Insurance...
