Finding makeup products that suit your skin, make you feel good and allow you to express yourself can be a true struggle sometimes. There are so many amazing products out there and so many we still need to try, but we’ve rounded up the ones that never leave us hanging. For those never-ending game days or just a day of classes, these products will always leave you feeling and looking flawless! If you want to add some new products to your glam routine, here are some of our absolute favorites and products we swear by. 

1. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

If you’re looking for a mascara that will amplify your lashes without the hassle of falsies, then you need to try Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara. The thick wand creates a full, volumizing look that is perfect for a night out or everyday wear, and it is sure to last you the entire day without smudging. This mascara will change your life, no doubt about it!

2. Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish

Choosing the perfect lip color can be what pulls an entire look together, but finding a lip product that is high-quality with a ton of shades can be tricky. Luckily, Buxom has over 20 different colors of their plumping lip polish to choose from. This product is gorgeous with heavy pigment and a perfect shiny finish. Not only is it plumping, but it’s long-lasting, and we can attest that this lip polish will last you all day, even through meals and drinks. 

3. Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand (Pinkgasm)

Honestly, nothing compares to the Charlotte Tilbury glow wand in pinkgasm, and it’s truly the most crucial part of our makeup routine that we could not live without. It’s the prettiest pink shade that suits any skin tone and has the most beautiful shimmery finish. It could even double as a highlighter due to the way it makes your skin glimmer in the sunlight. If you’re looking for some compliments on your makeup, our first recommendation is for you to try this product; we promise you won’t regret it!

4. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder

This setting powder is a lifesaver for those who want a long-lasting fresh makeup look. This product keeps your makeup as perfect as it was when you first walked out of the house, whether that be a long game day or rainy weather. Not only will this make your makeup last long, but it also covers and perfects any areas that your concealer couldn’t cover up. There are 8 shades including a translucent color, so it will work for any skin tone and will last you a while (mine usually lasts almost a year, a little goes a long way).

5. Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette

If you want to spice up your everyday glam, this palette is the one for you! With an amazing range of shades, the Naked 3 palette suits literally any vibe you’re going for. Whether you just want to add a neutral swipe of shadow for a daytime look or create a more smoky and dramatic look, this palette has it all. It’s an oldie but a goodie, for sure, and a must-try shadow.
