Makeup miracles


As I’ve turned my attention toward investing in quality makeup items throughout the past year, I’ve discovered a few must-have miracle products that, despite their weird or ordinary appearances at first glance, are must-haves for everyone (in my opinion).

  • Nyx Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand in Green: I know what you’re thinking: green?! This concealer is great for concealing red blemishes, and the green helps to counteract the red. (Plus the consistency is great, and you really can’t beat the $4.99 price!)
  • Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Bare: I mentioned this eyeliner in my February favorites, but it really is the best liner out there for lining the waterline of your eyes. I use it when my eyes are looking a little red to brighten them.
  • Nyx Radiant Finishing Powder: This is one of the products that’s intimidating at first because of all the crazy colors. But I like to use it after my setting powder to add a little brightness and highlight to my face.
  • Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder: This is hands down the best setting powder for the undereye area — and a little goes a long way.
  • Becca Lip Priming Perfector: Before you put on lipstick or even gloss, this lip priming perfector is ideal for adding longevity.
  • Mac Fix+: My most recent addition to my makeup collection, Mac Fix+ is the ultimate miracle product. When you use it to apply shimmery eyeshadows, it gives the shadow a foil finish and increases the color payoff.
