Makeup Recommendations From An Ulta Employee

Working at ULTA has been a blessing, but also a curse if you ask my wallet. I was always into makeup, but after getting a job at ULTA, the amount of makeup I had tripled. Here are some of my favorite products to date:

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

This foundation covers every single blemish on my face. It’s full coverage but doesn’t go on cakey or too thick. They have a wide range of shades, and it has a handy applicator brush.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

My eyebrows are one of my most important features, and I’ve tried countless brow products to try and get them perfect. This gel has been a dream. It’s light, but it keeps your brows in place and adds a natural tint and stays all day.

Beauty Bakerie Lollipop Liner

If you want an eyeliner that can make a perfect wing and won’t budge, this is the liner for you. Beauty Bakerie has been making their name known in the past year, and it’s for great reasons. I also highly recommend their lip whips, they provide an all-day matte liquid lip that WILL NOT budge, no matter how many iced coffees you drink.

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Setting Spray

Everyone that has dabbled in makeup has heard of Urban’s All Nighter setting spray. That works wonders, but this one is specifically catered to oily skin. This spray keeps your makeup locked on all day and looking as if you just put it on.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit

I originally purchased this highlighting set for nights out or concerts due to the varying colors. However, this has now become a daily staple in my makeup routine as it provides a mesmerizing glow with subtle colors. It’s a perfect accent to your cheekbones.

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill The Vault Bling Boss Eyeshadow Palette

I have a huge collection of eyeshadow palettes, but this one is one of my favorites. Not only is it super pigmented and goes on great, it’s affordable as well. Any of Morphe’s palettes have amazing colors, and they all give you the ability to create beautiful looks.


These are just a few of my favorite products, although there are countless others that I use all the time. If you haven’t gotten into makeup yet, I recommend trying it, it can be very therapeutic, and fun to create art on your face.
