My Personal Favorite Makeup Products

A photo of makeup products, including some of my personal favorites.

I want to share my top favorite makeup products with you! These are my go-to’s, my necessities, the essential products that I use. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Please keep in mind this is NOT a sponsored post. I really love these products and use them whenever I get ready for the day, and I even have them in my professional makeup kit!

These products are not only my favorite, but my clients love them as well! If you’re looking for some new products to spice up your makeup look, look no further!

Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara

I love how this mascara comes in regular and waterproof. It doesn’t transfer and it really makes the lashes both longer and fuller. The waterproof is a must whenever I work with weddings. I mean who doesn’t cry at a wedding? Am I right? So when your tears fall down on your face, your makeup won’t go with them. I have both in my kit and I use the regular one in all my makeup applications except weddings.

Laura Mercier – Translucent Setting Powder

This setting powder is AMAZING! Especially under the eyes to set your concealers so it won’t move throughout the day. This powder doesn’t create an ugly flash back (like Makeup Forever Setting Powder). They have a glow finish and a matte finish, so for my clients who want that glow, I mix the two setting powders together so they can get that dewy look. If someone wants a matte look, I just use the regular powder.

Just a warning: if you have super fair skin, this powder might not look the best on you. It isn’t truly translucent.. It has a hint of color and that will show if you have very light skin. If that is the case, use RCMA No Color Powder. This works just as well!!

Lorrac – Front of the Line Pro Liner

This liquid eyeliner is one of liners I use on almost every client I have! It has a felt tip which makes it super easy to apply a thin straight line. I love how it is super black and it doesn’t rub off throughout the day. 

MAC – Lipstick Shades: Spirit, Velvet Teddy, Whirl, Touch, and Verve

These lipsticks are my staple nudes that all my clients love. And I love them too!! I love MAC Lipsticks because they aren’t too drying, even their matte finishes. They also last all day and are very pigmented. I don’t use any other lipstick on myself. 

Benefit – Hoola Bronzer

This bronzer can match almost all my clients. The color of it is perfect and can be buildable for someone who loves a strong contour or someone who just wants something subtle. You probably have heard of it before!


Whether you’re hoping for a dewy or matte look, or you want your makeup to last all day, these products will help meet your makeup needs! Not only are they my personal favorite, but my clients always ask after their trials what I used and go out and buy these for themselves! You can not go wrong with these makeup staples.
