My Favorite Things – Make-up Edition Part II


It’s time for another installment of, “My Favorite Things,” and yes I am still talking about make-up. If you remember, I talked all things masks and treatments in Part I, so it’s only fitting I move onto foundations and such. Now, for some, the amount of stuff I put on my face might seem a bit ridiculous and truthfully it probably is!  Contrary to popular belief I don’t wake up looking fresh faced and ready to go every morning it takes A LOT of work……and coffee…lots of coffee.

Let’s get started!

SPF – Clinique City Block SPF 25

SPF because….duh. Don’t go a day without SPF. Seriously, you are not very smart if you do. Sun damage can happen anywhere at any time. So SPF UP!

Primer – Mac Prep and Prime

MAC primer

I was never one to buy into the whole “primer” thing. I just didn’t believe all the hype. That is until I wandered into the MAC store in Honolulu Hawaii and was introduced to this dream of a product. It’s lightweight, doesn’t feel greasy, and will strengthen the staying power of any foundation.

Smashbox Under Eye Primer


I was also a huge skeptic of this product. But like the MAC primer, it keeps your concealer where it is supposed to be…under your eyes.

Concealer – Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer


This is the best concealer I have ever used. Like…EVER. I have tried many a concealer in my day and not one of them has impressed me as much as this one. It covers, it’s lightweight, and it doesn’t settle into those under eye lines I developed from to many late nights in college………………studying.

Foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place

Estee Foundation

I have gone back and forth, wearing foundation, not wearing foundation, back to wearing foundation. I just could never find one that didn’t settle into those pesky wrinkles on my face, or drip off when I would sweat (gross I know). That is until I discovered Estee Lauder Double Wear. This stuff is seriously the best. It is a full coverage foundation without feeling like you have 30 pounds of make-up on your face. It stays in place and is sweat-proof! A little bit goes a long way with this stuff so it lasts forever…BONUS!

Powder – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Powder

You can’t have one without the other! Like the foundation this powder is lightweight, but gives a full coverage. It doesn’t move, and surprise, surprise is sweat-proof! On days when I don’t want to spend as much time on my face I use just the powder and I still get a good amount of coverage.

So there you have it! I 100% recommend these products to anyone. Now, obviously what works for me won’t work for everyone, and that’s ok! I encourage you to go find your favorite things and share them with….me!

Peace, Love, and Make-up

  1. Have you tried Tarte Shape Tape yet? I used to love NARS but the Shape Tape might be beating it.

    Also love MAC Pro Longwear concealer.
