It may come as no shock to you, but I'm kind of a makeup junkie. I've had my moments over the years where I've become completely obsessed with every new product on the market and can't get enough of beauty Youtube videos, but I've also been in a place where I like to stick to my old favorites and only occasionally pick up new products when they immensely spark my interest. Either way, I love a good beauty product and certainly have my essentials that I can't live without. So I thought it would be fun to share my six beauty essentials with you all, just in case you've ever wondered what I wear on my face day-to-day.

From the top: MAC powder blush in Fleet Fast, bareMinerals Mineral Veil, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, Maybelline Great Lash, bareMinerals highlighter in The Love Affair and MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20.

1. This powder blush is the perfect mixture of a light coral and golden shimmers. While it was special edition, Nars Orgasm would be a close second. 2. I use this powder every day, whether I'm putting it over a liquid or powder foundation, or just as an oil barrier right on my skin, it's the best for keeping the shine away and evening out your skin tone (in my case, at least). 3. I LOVE this cream shadow! I wear it almost every day either on its own, or under another eye shadow so it can act as a primer. 4. What can I say, you can't beat the classics! 5. Highlighters are my weakness and I LOVE the golden shimmer and light this one brings to my face. 6. I've been using this concealer for years and it works great to cover up those dark shadows underneath your eyes. It can be a bit drying, but I love it just the same.

I would love to hear about your beauty essentials! Please leave a comment below and we can bond over the magic that is makeup! ;)

  1. I keep going back to the Great Lash too :)


  2. Love these items! :)


  3. I hate spending so much money on something like mascara, but I cannot find anything I like more than Better Than Sex by Too Faced. I used Great Lash for years (because my grandma always used it!), but as soon as I tried BTS, I never looked back!
    Other than that, I love (love love) the Make Up For Ever HD foundation, Nars creamy concealer & Tarte finishing powder. All are amazing products!
