If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack

Being a teenage girl who loves art, shopping, and all things girly, makeup is one of my favorite things to collect. However, at the end of the day, I use makeup to correct parts of myself that I don't like to help me feel beautiful. Here are my favorite makeup products at the moment that I've been loving for a natural everyday look. 

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

After trying out countless BB and CC creams, this one finally met my standards. It's easy to blend, it has SPF 20, super moisturizing, and it feels so lightweight. It has light to medium coverage which works great for me. It also has a dewey, glowy finish which looks so youthful and natural.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Finding a powder that matches my skin tone and isn't too cakey is pretty rare. This loose translucent powder is amazing. It isn't cakey, it brightens my skin, and makes my skin look super soft and smooth.

NYX Cheek Contour Highlight Duo Palette

This contour duo in the shade 'Ginger and Pepper' was a new discovery this month, and I instantly fell in love. The highlight shade is a pearly shade which is light enough for a subtle everyday highlight. It's definitley build-able for those who prefer a more dramatic highlight. The matte blush shade suits my skin tone as it's dark enough to be visible yet doesn't look fake. NYX is an affordable brand as well, so that's always a bonus!

Amaterasu Smudge Proof Liquid Eyeliner

This liquid eyeliner is just amazing. It glides really smoothly on the eyelid, and the tip is really helpful for precision. It's also really long lasting. The formula is also waterproof which is helpful. Definitley a favorite of mine!

Too Faced Better Than Love Mascara

I've tried out quite a few mascaras, and this one is insane. After one coat, I'm good to go. It lengthens and thickens and makes my lashes look really intense. The wand is in an hourglass shape which really helps elongate each individual lash. I love this product!

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Although this isn't considered a makeup product, I think it's worthy of being included in this post. I unfortunatley have really dry, chapped lips even in the summertime, but this lip scrub has saved me. I use it almost everyday to keep my lips healthy and moisturized. It smells like cotton candy and feels amazing on the lips.

Laura Mercier SPF 15 Lip Balm

Along with the lip scrub I mentioned earlier, I use this Laura Mercier lip balm to moisturize my lips and protect them from the sun. Although the product seems tinted, it surprisingly comes out clear. It also smells like cupcakes which great!

NYX Lips- Soft Matte Lip Cream, Intense Butter Gloss, Whipped Fouette & Cheek Souffle

Whenever I put something on my lips, it's one of these 3 products. The soft matte lip cream in the shade Stockholm is the perfect nude shade for my skin tone. It's matte but doesn't dry out your lips which is super helpful. The intense butter gloss in the shade Chocolate Crêpe is a lovely plum shade. It gives my lips some color and looks amazing. The Whipped Fouette & Cheek Soufflé in the shade Plush is a bright barbie pink shade that works well as a lip gloss or as a cheek tint. These products are all amazing and super pigmented!
