Full Face Makeup Recommendations

My top products for anything you need.


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!

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
