I've been getting into makeup more in recent years, so I thought I'd share some products I love! Most of these can be bought at the drugstore but some are available at Sephora, Ulta, etc.

The photos I use aren't of the products I name.

Colourpop's Fade Into Hue palette is great for bold colors!

Maybelline's The Nudes palette is great for neutral basics. I've been using it for years and it's my go-to for neutral looks.

The Chocolate Chip mini palette from Too Faced is an adorable palette that's versatile. It's very creamy and lasts a long time. It also smells amazingโ€” just like chocolate!

Covergirl's Clump Crusher mascara is phenomenal. If you hate clumpy lashes, this is for you! Both black and brown look gorgeous.

Another stunning mascara from Covergirl is the Lash Blast Volume Mascara. It gives a super high lift without getting clumpy and I love the applicator.

The Facestudio Hydrating Master Prime from Maybelline comes with a lot of different options based on what you need or what type of skin you have. My skin tends to be very dry, especially in the colder months, so I use the hydrating one. It feels soothing on my skin.

Maybelline's FitMe foundation has been my ride-or-die for years! It comes in both dewy + smooth and matte + poreless options based on what type of finish you want. There are also a lot of options for different skin colors!

Tarte's Shape Tape concealer is kinda expensive but has lasted me a long time. I think it gives great coverage and covers blemishes better when applied with my finger vs a beauty blender.

Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer works wonders for dark circles. The applicator is kind of weird but it looks fine once you blend it!

I absolutely love the Blush Stix from Colourpop! They're so easy to blend and look beautiful. I have the color Aloha but I would like to get more since I love mine so much!

Elf's baked highlighters are great for the price! I haven't gotten other kinds because I haven't needed them, plus I like how this one looks. It's also buildable if you want that glazed donut look.

Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick is my favorite lipstick line. I love the colors and they've been some of the best I've tried! They last a while and don't stain when you take them off.

I got Fenty Beauty's Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer because I had a Sephora gift card and I'm literally obsessed. It's gorgeous and smells like a dream.
