Un Cover-Up – this has been a staple in my life for years. I alternate between 11 and 22 depending on the time of year, and I just adore the coverage of this product for my under-eye dark circles. Check out my full review with comparative swatches here.

Glossier Stretch Concealer – so, this product is less green than the rest, but I wanted to try a concealer that was more conventional and perhaps less oily than the RMS, which can sometimes settle into fine lines. I have been using this now more often than the RMS in the past month. It has pretty good coverage and looks more natural than the RMS. However, the opacity of the RMS is better.


Jane Iredale PurePressed Powder Foundation – I haven’t been loyal to any foundation ever until now. This powder isn’t cakey, and it makes my skin tone look so even and bright. It doesn’t keep the skin matte per se, but it does have spf and is stupid simple to apply. LOVE IT. I’ve got the shade Suntan and also the deeper shade Riviera to prepare for tanner skin in the summer or to serve as a contour. In addition, I find the mineral ingredients of this foundation help keep my skin clear. Jane Iredale also has incredible customer service and swapped out a product because of a lack of shade match no questions asked—I didn’t even have to return the original foundation that was too light for me. I was able to pass it along to my mom. I was super impressed!


Fitglow Beauty Mineral Cheek Blush in Sculpt – There aren’t a lot of powder contours in the green beauty world, and the shade and mill of this one is incredible. I’ve used it so much that I’ve almost hit pan! It’s buildable, natural, and I highly recommend it.

RMS Beauty Contour Bronze – Though I have gotten into the Buriti Bronzer as of late, this shade is darker and perfect for summer plus it includes all the lovely, RMS ingredients and adds a bit of sheen to the cheeks. It’s definitely my favorite cream contour. Check out my in-depth review with swatches here.


Tata Harper Very Highlighting – The best thing about these cream makeup products is that they are packed full of all the amazing ingredients that make up the Tata Harper Skincare line. This highlighter is a more neutral sheen compared to the icier RMS Living Luminizer, and I really like the shade. Check out my in-depth review with swatches here.

Honest Beauty Luminizing Powder in Dawn Reflection – I imagine this as the natural equivalent to the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders. It adds the perfect glow to my finished look, and it’s the absolute standout of the three shade options. It gives me the perfect warm sheen and helps my skin look more luminous. Check out my in-depth review with swatches of this and the other luminizing powders here.


RMS Beauty Demure Lip2Cheek – This is my favorite cream blush because it imparts the perfect pink to cheeks that lasts all day. Check out my in-depth review with swatches here.


Red Apple Lipstick Gluten Free Eyeshadow – The quality and staying power of these shadows is excellent, and they’ve got a huge range of products with great deals if you buy multiple together. Check out my in-depth review with swatches here.


Honest Beauty True Velvet Eyeliner – I’d used Korres eyeliners for the longest time, but I wanted to try out another brand, and I wanted a brand with a soft pencil tip that drew on easily. The texture of these liners is soft, and it can sometimes get smudge-y, but I don’t have that problem when applying carefully, and I love how smoothy they apply. Also, the ingredients don’t irritate my eyes, even when I use the liner on my waterline.


100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara in Blackberry – I’ve been using this product for years, and it’s a staple in my collection. It isn’t waterproof, but I find it stays put all day. It isn’t a super dramatic mascara, but it’s perfect for everyday, and it smells fruity and delicious. I like how gentle and fluid the product is. It isn’t cake-y or dry at all.

BW3LL People Black Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara – Check out my full review here. If you want length and more drama than 100% Pure, this is the perfect choice. The formula’s a bit more watery than the one above, but I don’t mind. It really does add definition and intensity to the lashes, which is rare in a natural mascara.


RMS Beauty Un Powder – This is an exceptionally finely milled loose powder that sets makeup and gets rid of any shine. I rely on it to set my cream concealer and keep it from creasing. Unless you want something pressed, this is the perfect loose setting powder.


Kari Gran Lip Whip in Naked – I have been using this lip balm forever, and it is THE BEST at moisturizing my dry lips, especially at this time of year. I’ve tried a lot of lip balm, and this continues to be my favorite. Check out my in-depth Kari Gran review here.


Glossier Generation G Lipstick in Like – Again, not the greenest, but this shade is my-lips-but-better perfection, and I can’t get over how much I like to texture and finish. It’s buttery and more matte, but not drying, and it doesn’t settle into fine lines. And, it seems to last quite a while. LOVE it.

Any of your favorites that I missed? I would love to hear them!
