Makeup Montage/A Few Favorite Products Of 2018 ♥

Hey y’all. For today’s post I wanted to do a ‘makeup montage’. A little while back before Christmas I had done a full face, so I figured I would share it with you today. I used multiple favorite products from 2018 so it’s the best of both worlds. Let me know in the comments if you guys enjoy more picture content with caption vs longer paragraphed posts. ☺

(I will link all products at the bottom of this post)


Starting off with one of my ALL TIME favorite masks:

Energie De Vie Exfoliating Mask. This mask is amazing for dry skin because of the exfoliating beads that are in it. Love it!


After washing the face mask off, I went in with my jade roller. I have talked about the benefits from using a jade roller in a previous post. It’s a great inexpensive tool to help de puff and increase circulation.


I like doing my hair before I start my makeup, and after I have done my skincare for the day. Today I had to wash my hair, so here I am blow drying it and then curling it. I am using my (.5/1 inch perhaps?) curling wand, and then letting my curls ‘set’ while I do my makeup. I purchased this curling iron from Marshall’s a few years back, so it’s not available to my knowledge anymore.


Using my Derma Blend Insta-Grip Jelly Primer; this was a staple in my makeup routine during this past summer. It’s wonderful when it comes to the warm weather especially, as it provides a great base for your foundation.


Using my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation In 1W2. My holy grail –GO TO Foundation ALWAYS!


Next I’m going in with the Urban Decay Naked Concealer in a light shade to provide coverage and highlight. I love this concealer for my dry skin because it has a more liquid consistency, making it easier to use and manipulate.

Lastly, I am using my Derma Blend Translucent Powder to set everything.


(Not Photographed) but other holy grail items used:

  • Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer
  • Elf Blush In Mellow Mauve
  • Urban Decay Highlighter In Sin

I love Benefit Products specifically when it comes to doing my eyebrows. Using Precisely My Brow in Shade 2. 

Then going in with my Younique Fiber lashes Mascara. I am a sucker for this stuff and have been for years. Always does the trick when I am planning on not wearing lashes that day.


Used the same Bronzer on my eyes to create a bit of definition in the crease.
