5 Must Have Makeup Products by @AlexaMakesUp

My Top 5 Holy Grail Products:

I am a makeup junkie. Some people collect baseball cards or books, but I collect makeup. There is just something about it that gets me so excited. Anytime a new eyeshadow palette, lipstick, or foundation comes out, I am more than likely going to go to my nearest drug store, Sephora, or Ulta, to try it out (and usually end up buying it). That being said, I am going to share with you a couple of MY favorite products right now:

1. Primer:

My favorite face primer (used before applying foundation) is the Benefit POREfessional Primer. This primer is super silky and oil-free so it makes your face the perfect canvas to start applying your makeup to. This retails for $31.00 at Ulta.

2. Eyeshadow:

I just recently purchased the Smashbox Full Exposure palette and I LOVE it. Not only does the palette come with 14 of the most beautiful colors, but it also includes an eyeshadow primer and a dual ended brush! Great deal if you ask me. All of the eyeshadows are super wearable (since they’re all neutral) and extremely pigmented. I HIGHLY recommend this palette to anyone who’s in the market for some neutral eyeshadows. Retails for $52.00 at Sephora.

3. Bronzer:

Anyone who knows me knows I’m all about that contour. The Hoola Bronzer by Benefit gives me the look I desire all year round. I have been using this bronzer for many years now, and it continues to amaze me! It’s the perfect color for contouring because it’s matte (so it will give you a more natural look) it’s super blendable, and comes with a free brush! This retails for $28.00 at Ulta.

4. Powder Foundation:

My ALL TIME favorite powder foundation has always been the Bare Minerals Original powder foundation. It has SPF 15 in it so it’s great to wear everyday to protect your skin from the sun. It also has great coverage with a luminous finish. They offer a wide variety of colors so it’s perfect for everyone. I highly recommend trying it out. Retails for $28.00 at Sephora.

5. Liquid Eyeliner:

Personally, I think that liquid eyeliner is a must in every person’s makeup collection. Liquid liner can take an eye look from 0 to 100 REAL QUICK. A lot of people have a personal vendetta against liquid liner because it can sometimes take a lot of practice to master the perfect winged liner. However, felt tip liners are a lot easier to use and I actually prefer them. The Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid eyeliner is my FAVORITE. The name really speaks for itself because it does stay ALL day. There are a variety of colors which are all amazing. This retails for $22.00 at Sephora.

Hope you get a chance to try some of these products out!
