Full Face Makeup Recommendations

Through reviews, swatches, and experience, I have my favorite products for anything you could possibly need. If you would like to buy any of the products listed, the name will have a link to where it can be purchased. Here is my top products of all time!

Primer- Nivea Men’s Sensitive Post Shave Balm

I know this may sound crazy but this is my all time favorite primer. I have used Urban Decay, Smashbox, etc. and I have never used something that keeps your makeup on as well at Nivea Men’s Aftershave. All you have to do is spread it on the areas you want, wait until it’s tacky and apply your foundation.

Foundation- Milani Conceal & Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer

I have probably tried more foundations than any other beauty product. From high end to low end, Milani is hands down my favorite foundation. It is a thicker foundation so you only have to use a small amount of it. If you’re looking for a new foundation, this is my absolute recommendation.

Concealer- Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer

This concealer is hands-down the best I’ve ever used. It’s the only concealer I’ve ever used that doesn’t crease under the eyes. Also, a little bit goes a long way so you only have to use a tiny amount to cover all needed spots. It took me about three months to go through a full tube. 10/10 definitely recommend.

Powder- Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder, Translucent

When it comes to powders, you can honestly use whatever. I usually recommend translucent powders because it’s much less “cakey” than colored powder. Translucent powders can also be used for baking your face.

Brow Pencil- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

As some who was bored with naturally bright blonde hair, my eyebrows are invisible. I have tried NYX, Benefit cosmetics, other Anastasia products. So far my favorite is the brow wiz. It is the most pigmented, precise pencil I’ve used.

Eyeshadow Palette- Morphe 35O

This palette has mattes and shimmers so you can create so many looks with one palette. Considering how affordable it is, there’s not one con to this palette. This is absolutely my favorite palette ever.

Eyeliner- Stilla Stay All-day Liner

I’m a huge fan of felt-tip liner because it’s the easiest to use, the most pigmented and the longest lasting. This liner is hands down my favorite because it has a thin tip, waterproof and the darkest black liner I can find.

Mascara- Urban Decay Perversion

As someone who has invisible eyelashes, I have tried mascaras from all ends of the scale. By far, my favorite mascara is Urban Decay Perversion because it lengthens and volumizes your lashes.

Contour/Bronzer- Benefit Hoola Bronzer

I use bronzer for contouring and bronzing. The way it turns out depends on what brush you use (which I will have an entire other article about that). This bronzer is the best for a range of skin tones and is my favorite I’ve ever used.

Highlight- Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop

If you are glow-obsessed like me, this will be a key product. It’s a pink/white highlighter and it is intense. It's buildable and works great on pale to deep skin tones.

Lip Liner- NYX Lip Liner

Lip liner is great because you can wear it on it’s own or you can put lipstick on top of it. It can be used to deepen or lighten a shade. NYX is the best affordable lip liner I have found.

Lipstick- NYX Matte Lipstick

As you can see, I’m a big fan of NYX lip products. My favorite type of lipstick is matte because you can put lipgloss on top if you want it glossier. NYX matte lipsticks are the best matte lip I’ve used.

Liquid Lipstick- Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Liquid lips are best for all day wear. If you get a liquid lip with a poor formula, it can start cracking and falling off throughout the day. My all-time favorite liquid lip is Anastasia Beverly Hills for sure.

Setting Spray- Urban Decay All-Nighter

Setting spray is a must have if you’re wanting to have your makeup stay all day. It will help keep your makeup in place and will prevent grease from forming as quickly. This comes in a full and travel size as well!

Here are my top recommendations for every face product you should need. Stay tuned for brush favorites soon!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
