I haven’t done a “makeup favorites” post in a while, so I thought I would share some things I’m loving at the moment. I try a lot of different products, and even ones that I really like sometimes get pushed to the side. These are products that are quickly becoming “ride or die” products for me – I can’t stop reaching for them!

Pixi by Petra mists

Literally all of them, guys. I’ll go through them really quick – the Glow Mist is wonderful pretty much anytime (under or on top of makeup) but it’s more to give you a glow, I wouldn’t really call it a setting spray. I like adding it to my skincare routine if my skin feels dry but I don’t want to add ANOTHER cream to my face. The Vitamin Wakeup Mist has a lovely citrus scent and definitely helps me feel more awake. It feels great on the skin but if you’re oily, I would avoid this one. The Hydrating Milky Mist is probably my favorite at the moment, you can apply it just about anytime – it’s really light and super hydrating. I can tell a difference right away, when I use it. And last but not least, the Makeup Fixing Mist is great too! It helps lock in my makeup and has a nice rose scent that’s really calming. Honestly you can’t go wrong with any of these mists, especially for summer! If I had to choose just one, I think I’d go with the Hydrating Milky Mist.

Fiona Stiles Sheer Sculpting Palette – Light/Medium

Y’all. I’m going to go into more detail on this product in another post later, but this is my FAVORITE bronzer/contour powder ever. Because it’s sheer, it’s easy to build and hard to mess up. I use it with a kabuki brush, starting with the lightest color and then I use the darker shades depending on the look I’m going for. I can use all three shades of the Light/Medium palette so if you’re any darker than me, this will likely be too light for you.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover

I have lots of (mostly drugstore) blushers but sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself and I’m SO glad I did. I bought this at Ulta during their 21 Days of Beauty sale so it was only $13, but now that I’ve tried it I think it would be worth the $26 if you’ve got it. It’s suuuuper blendable and easy to wear and I do feel like the shade gives me more of a natural flush than a lot of other blushers I’ve used. Also now I’m saying “blusher” like the Brits, so get used to it.

This is nothing new, but I just love this concealer so much. Also now they have a lighter shade that works well for fair skinned gals like me. I just apply it to my face and blend it out with a Beauty Blender, super easy.

The best eyeshadow primer is available at the drugstore (and it’s cruelty free)! Click through for more best of beauty!

Milani Eyeshadow Primer

This eyeshadow primer is so perfect I dedicated an entire post to it – you can find it here!

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

Look, y’all. This mascara is not cruelty free and I hate including it but I can’t deny the power of this mascara. I’m trying so hard to find a CF alternative that works as well but no dice yet. It gives my lashes SO much length and volume, it’s incredible. So if anyone has ties with L’Oreal and can get them to go cruelty free, that would be greaaaaat.

 

The best highlighter for fair skin - this drugstore highlighter from Pixi by Petra is one of my current makeup favorites. Click through for more best of beauty!

Pixi Glow-y Powder in London Lustre

I’ve already gone on and on about this highlighter in this post, so if you want more info definitely check that out! The short version is, it’s my go-to highlighter and would work on lots of skin tones. There’s also a shade that’s a bit darker that would work for medium/dark skin tones!

Pixi + ItsJudyTime Eyeshadow Palette

This is my current favorite eyeshadow palette – all of the shades are so buttery and warm and there’s a nice balance of shimmer, matte and satin shadows. Also the pigmentation is crazy. If you only buy one eyeshadow palette, get this one.

Welp guys I tried to keep this short and that only kind of worked. I tried!

  1. I feel like I’m about to go buy a lot of these things! You’ve never steered me wrong with your makeup recs. I bought some Wet and Wild blush after seeing it on your insta stories a few months ago and I love it! I really want to try the Pixi mists and the bronzer palate but all of it looks great.

    1. Do itttttt. That bronzer palette is my favorite purchase right now. It’s on sale but they’re out of light/medium online so definitely check in stores at Ulta! I can’t find that brand anywhere else. And the Pixi mists are SOOOO nice esp for summer, I love not having to slap more cream on my face when I’m feeling dry lol.

    1. Yeah I’ve actually heard those highlighters were eh (but honestly I’d probably still buy them just because of the packaging….which is embarrassing to admit). I think I’m just not great at applying blusher so the expensive ones work better for me, they just blend so much easier! I think my fave drugstore is still Wet n Wild though. So good.

  2. Hello! I just wish to offer you a hyge thumbs up for
    the great information you have right here oon this post.
    I will be coming back to ylur bloog for more soon.

    1. Let me know if you give any of them a spin! And that Hydrating mist is LIFE – I’m gonna be spraying it on myself all summer long 🙂
