my ride or die makeup

one of my favorite YouTube beauty gurus came up with this tag, and it was fun to put together my own list!

here’s the original video:

here are my favorite tag videos:

i’m on a budget (even though i spend more than i should on make-up!) so my ride or dies are a mix of high end and drugstore items.  so here they are!

primer | nivea post shave balm. just trust me. i know it’s weird, but it works.  (i got the idea from nikkietutorials)

foundation | loreal infallible foundation and neutrogena healthy skin foundation. i mix the two – more infallible in the summer and more healthy skin in the winter.

concealer | maybelline age rewind in brightening (under eyes) and maybelline fit me in light to blend and for any spots.

face powder | mac mineralize skin finish in light

under eye powder | rcma no color powder

blush | milani flower blush in romantic rose and tea rose

bronzer | physicians formula butter bronzer

highlighter | mary lou manizer from the balm and wet and wild highlighter in Hollywood boulevard (for gold) and the tarte highlighter in the showstopper palette

palette | tarte showstopper palette and the kat von d shade and light palette

mascara | loreal voluminous million lashes waterproof (top lashes) AND the maybelline lash discovery (lower lashes and second top lashes coat). i know, i know…high maintenance.

lipstick | rimmel no. 45. i also like the maybelline mattes in like every nude and plum shade.

liquid lip | none. i can’t with the liquid lipsticks.

lip gloss | nyx butter gloss in tiramusu

setting spray | loreal infallible spray for hot days and the lavender and glycerin spray for cold/drier days.

also: vanity planet brushes and the real techniques sponge
