Full Face Holy Grail Products

Monday, February 27, 2017

Hey friends! Today's post is centered around my favorite makeup products to complete a full-face look! No more & no less. This collection of favorites contains a good mixture of high-end & low end products. After much trial & error over the years, these are the items that I can't quit. Some I grab on a daily basis, others are saved for the 'more glam' moments. All are equal in quality. Have you tried any of these products? I'm curious what's on your 'must-have' makeup list!

1. CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation.
I wore this foundation on my wedding day. It's that good. It has built in primer & concealer so it has a smooth application + the coverage needed for any breakouts. It's more of a medium coverage foundation, but can be built up to full coverage. I would suggest using a beauty blender/dupe for this product for maximum coverage and flawless application. --$11.99/Ulta.com

2 .Rimmel London Skin Tone Adapting Concealer
This Rimmel concealer has great coverage, a creamy application & doesn't cling to dry patches or fine lines. It comes with a brush applicator attached to the end & the product is released by squeezing the tube. I prefer this concealer over the others I have tried for the coverage & the under eye brightening capabilities. I always feel like I look more awake using this concealer. --$5.99/ Ulta.com

3. Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
This product is perfect for normal/oily skin. It keeps the oil at bay while minimizing the appearance of pores. It's shine-control lasts up to 5 hours.--$3.97/Walmart.com

4. Lorac Pro Contour Palette 
A friend passed this contour palette on to me when she discovered it didn't work for her. I'm so happy she did! I've never found a bronzer that blends so seamlessly on my skin. I use the light bronzer unless i'm self tanned, then I use the medium shade. I also like to use the beige highlight under my eyes on dark circle days. A little pricey, but worth the investment. --$45/ Ulta.com

5. Nars Orgasm Blush
I think it's safe to the that this blush has made it to many Holy Grail lists over the years. It's silky & blendable. It's also complimenting to all skin tones & is light enough to pair with a bold eye. $30/NARS.com

6. BECCA/Jaclyn Hill Highlight Champagne Pop
I purchased this highlight the day it was released to Sephora. After watching Jaclyn Hill for a few years on Youtube, I knew the girl would release a phenomenal highlight shade. She didn't disappoint! I don't use this on a daily basis, but I love having it on hand for glam nights. It has multi-toned pearls which allows the product to adjust to every skin tone. $38/Sephora.com

7. Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer

A little goes a long way with this product, which means this little tube lasts a long time. I like the thicker consistency of this product & also how is conceals any lines/veins on eyelids for optimal shadow pigmentation. My tip is to let it dry completely before using shadows on top. $20/Sephora.com

8. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
My sweet husband surprised me with this palette 2 Christmases ago & my love for it is still going strong. It has the shades needed for a natural look and a glam look. It's my favorite to pack for trips since I know it will supply me with any look needed. Tease, Foxy & Pistol are my favorite shades.--$54/Sephora.com

This is another product that was given to me by a friend. I believe it came in her BirchBox. It lasted so long & the pigmentation is incredible. It's also skinny enough to create a simple wing for a day time look, which is my favorite liner look. It is smudge proof and lasts all day. $14/ASOS.com
I'm not a big fan of thick lip products. For that reason, I choose to use a natural lip liner with balm over top most days. My favorite lip liner is MAC's Whirl which gained popularity around the time Kylie Jenner's lips did. $17.50/Macy's.com

A full curved brush & no clumps. I fell in love with this mascara after using it only once. It has 10 layers of bristles to coat every lash. $8.99/ Maybelline.com

  I only use this product on hot weather days and nights out. Just spray 3-4 sprays over completed makeup & your makeup look will not budge. Not even a little! This was another item used on my wedding day. I sprayed the entire bridal party before we walked down the aisle. $31/Ulta.com
I picked up this product after a friend recommended it for my dry lips. I've since learned it does so much more than heal dry lips. It can soothe minor burns, heal cracked elbows & knees + help with dry ends of hair! Plus, it's a cheaper buy. $6/Sephora.com

This primer is heavenly. I've never felt a product so silky or smooth. The first time I tried a sample of this product, I was hooked. It smooths the skin with minerals to create a perfect canvas for the makeup applied afterward. It's oil free, reduces redness + pores + fine lines. $19/Nordstrom.com

-- love, Jordan
