Everyday makeup products you must try

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Holy Cross chapter.

I have never been a huge make up person. With such a busy life in college, having some go to make up products to make me feel great has been such a game changer. I swear by these seven products, and figured I’d pass them along!

1. Tarte’s BB blur tinted moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen


Tinted moisturizer is my favorite product to put on in the morning. Tarte’s tinted moisturizer gives good coverage while also including sunscreen. I love this product because I can wear it even if I don’t want to put on a full face of makeup.

2. tarte amazonian clay waterproof bronzer


I love this bronzer because it’s not made with oils. It has “Skinvigorating™” ingredients like vitamins A and E that serve as an added bonus.

3. tarte’s big ego mascara


I always get compliments when wearing this mascara. This product makes my lashes bigger, as you would guess from the name “big ego.” This product leaves my lashes looking full all day.

4. nyx’s Jumbo Eye Pencil All-In-One Eyeshadow Eyeliner Pencil


I love the versatility of this product. I can use it as a liner, shadow, or for my inner corners. Typically, I’ll use this pencil for my inner corners, and it gives my eyes the perfect glow. I have only tried the white, but it comes in 15 other colors too.

5. charlotte tilbury’s mini pillowtalk lipstick and liner set


I was gifted this set for my birthday, and I use it all the time. It gives a subtle, but noticeable accent to your lips. It’s good for going out and chiller days too.

6. bare minerals veil talc free setting powder


I swear by Bare Mineals and their setting powder is no exception. I love the matte finish of this powder.

7. milk makeup’s lip + cheek cream blush stick


This stick can be utilized in so many different ways. I personally love using it as blush. The color has a great pigment that can last all day.

I hope you can add some of these products to your everyday makeup rotation :)
