Beauty Essentials

Hi, my name is Natalie and I am a makeupholic.

Favorite Makeup Products

Tartelette Palette
Around last year, I wanted to change up my eyeshadow look and stray away from all the shimmering shadows I used in my Naked 1, 2, and 3 Palettes. I decided to look for an all matte palette and the best one I found was by Tarte. I was also digging the plum look at the time, so pretty purples were a must. I am crazy about this palette - I like every single color and I feel they suit my style well.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan and Copenhagen
NYX is such a great brand. They have quality products and they aren't expensive either, which I can totally appreciate because I don't feel so bad when I come home with like 8 new products. My favorite thing to buy from them are their Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their color payoff is fantastic and they can last for hours without budging. I currently have about 6 in my collection. I featured the colors Milan and Copenhagen because those are my two favorites. Milan is great for a sweet daytime look, and Copenhagen is an ideal Fall lip color.

Stila Set & Correct Baked Powder Trio
I always like to use a little setting powder to keep myself feeling fresh and oil-free. This Stila powder is really great because it has peach, green, and lavender pigments to color correct your skin. The lavender powder fixes sallow skin, the peach powder brightens and illuminates, and the green powder fixes redness.

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Long gone are the days of Urban Decay's Primer Potion. When I first discovered this, it took my eyeshadow game to a whole new level. (Trust me!! If you try it, you will definitely see a difference in how well your eyeshadow is applied!) It's also about the same price as the primer potion yet can outlive it at least 4x longer. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown
I have pretty dark and full brows already, so I never really thought much about drawing them in. But wow it sure makes a difference! Even though I don't really need to fill them in to make them darker or fuller, it still makes it look nice to define them. I like to focus on the outer half of my brows and draw a more defined arch and longer tail. This stuff also lasts forever and ever. I'm convinced I will only need one of these in my entire lifetime. 

Clio Kill Black Eyeliner in Kill Black
Before discovering this brand, my go-to eyeliners were from the Stila and Sephora brand, but I found that they dried out way too quickly. They lasted maybe 2, 3 months tops. It didn't help that they cost $20 a pop either. But Clio's brush liners work incredibly well and I have been using this for years now. I was first introduced to this brand when I did a sponsored review on it back in 2013. This is by far the best eyeliner I've ever used and it takes forever to run out. It can last you probably ~6 months of frequent use. 

Kose Sekkisei White BB Cream
I tried many BB creams in the past and most of them have just felt way too rich and creamy for me. It leaves an uncomfortable oily feeling on my face. What I love about this Kose BB Cream is that it feels weightless on my skin. It dries with a powder-like finish so I don't get that oily feeling at all.

Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Petale
I just absolutely love this blush. The pigment is lovely and it has the nicest rose scent. And of course, its iconic packaging looks so classy. Everything about this blush is just perfect.
