Anyone who knows me can tell you how into beauty and skincare I am. I love
researching and buying products, and then making a haul or review vlog. Autumn is the perfect
time to buy some new products or experiment with a new look. Below are some of my go-to
makeup products and why.
*Quick disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with any of these brands, nor am I receiving any
compensation by recommending them. These are simply products that I use and enjoy.

Clarins Lip Comfort Oil
These are literally the best lip oils on the market and I have tried SO many. They come in
a variety of colors and the tint is always so cute. The formula is not too sticky and has a
soft and pleasant feel. They also smell AMAZING. My go-to color is Raspberry and it’s a
great addition to a minimal or no-makeup look.

Rare Beauty’s Positive Light Under Eye Brightener
Selena never misses. I just bought this and can say wholeheartedly that I will never buy
anything else. I was on the hunt for a good concealer and I tried everything. I wanted a
brightening concealer, so I needed something lighter than my foundation and tinted
moisturizer. The issue is I’m so pale that I am the lightest shade in every brand’s line, so
it was hard to find a concealer that was even lighter than that. I also didn’t want a
concealer that was too thick or full coverage. The Rare Beauty under eye brightener was
the perfect shade and the exact coverage I was looking for.

e.l.f Brow Lift Gel
A lot of people claim that this is a dupe of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze, and
as someone who has tried both, I agree. The e.l.f brow gel is my go-to when I need my
brows to stay in place. It doesn’t leave behind a crunchy residue and my brows will not
budge when I use it.

Benefit Cosmetics’ WANDERful World Silky-Soft Powder Blush Mini
Shout out to Alix Earle for this one. This is my favorite powder blush ever. No matter how
often you use it, the mini size will last you forever. My go-to color is Dandelion which is
the baby pink shade. It is so cute and perfectly pigmented. It also lasts me the whole day
and normally blush is the first thing to fade for me.

e.l.f Liquid Metallic Eyeshadow
This is my favorite liquid eyeshadow and I use it every day! It’s buildable, so you can use
just a little to create a minimal everyday look, and build it up to create a more full
coverage, night time look. It does dry down kind of quickly so you need to blend it fast,
but it lasts for hours with and without primer. This product made me a liquid eye shadow
