My Current Makeup Products

*This post contains affiliate links.

I love reading posts on the products people LOVE and USE. Last week, I wrote about my favorite hair products. I use EVERY single one of those items. I hate when I run out of them at the same time because it gets expensive, but they are my favorites.

This week, I am going to write about my current makeup products that I love. I change up my makeup products every so often, but some of them I use over and over again.

This is my current makeup LOVES:


Right now I use It Cosmetics CC Cream (in medium). I love the way it smells, feels on my skin and how easily it applies. I have been using this for about 5 months. My face doesn't break out with it, it has a pretty sheen to it and it has SPF 50 in it. That is a huge reason why I use this CC cream.

I have been looking at some other foundations that offer more of a full coverage because this one doesn't cover as much as I would like. It is good, but I like a real full coverage foundation. Suggestions?

I have tried so many concealers. I love everything from YSL (expensive) to Maybelline Under Eye Eraser, but right now, I have been using It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. I wasn't going to buy it because I thought it only went on under your eyes, but then I asked someone at Sephora about it and she said I can use it all over my face. I have medium and it covers all my zits, blemishes and freckles. I love this stuff. I haven't used anything else since buying this tube. Plus it lasts forever.

Makeup Sponge

I know people go back and forth on the perfect way to apply your foundation, but ever since I used the BeautyBlender Sponge, I haven't used a brush or anything else. The key is to clean your sponge out all the time. It is a pain to do, but it is the best for giving you the look you want every time. 

Eye Shadow Primer

I have never used any other primer than Urban Decay's Eye Shadow Primer, but I don't think I need to. Before I used primer, I used to get the crease from my eye shadow over the course of the day. Then someone was nice enough to introduce me to primer and I never turned back.

Eye Shadow

Just like with my primer, I have been using Too Faced Natural Eyes for a long time. I use other eye shadows, but I always go back to my favorite. I love the colors in it. My favorites are the second line, Silk Teddy, Push-Up and Erotica. Though I use them all, but the first three to go are the second line.

I go back and forth between blush and bronzer. I love Hourglass Blush, but I use bronzer more than anything else. My tried favorite is Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer. I love the color of this bronzer. I have been using this one for a long time. I need to buy a new one because I am left with a few broken chunks in my current one. I think this one gives you a more natural look.

After I put on all my makeup, I used It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Powder. This is supposed to reduce your pores, give you flawless skin, a finished look and it is anti-aging. I have been using it for about 5 months and I am on my second container. I love this stuff. It lasts all day long and doesn't make my face shiny.


I don't use mascara right now because I get my lashes done. I get a voluminous look to my lashes, but they are not lengthening. I feel like they look natural and not spidery like some of the ones I see. I can't really recommend a mascara because I was always searching for the best one and none give me the look I was going for.

And there you have it. My makeup routine and favorite products that I currently use. What do you use? What are your favorites?


  1. That CC cream has been my holy grail for a couple of years now - love it so much and still need to try the under eye concealer! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I go back and forth with the CC cream as well. I love it, but need more coverage. I love Makeup Forever. I do use the setting powder from It though, love it. I need to try the concealer as well.

  3. I need some eye shadow primer. Mine is wearing off by mid morning every day. Ugh

  4. I use Bare Minerals BarePro foundation - to me it's the perfect combo of coverage, yet still light and natural looking! I need a new concealer so I'll have to check that one out. I actually love the mascara I use -- just a drugstore steal (Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes).

  5. I'm working on coming up with a makeup routine. That is good to know that you can use the under eye concealer all over your face!

  6. The UD eyeshadow primer is one of my holy grails. Best product ever <3

  7. I love that cc cream but I too wish it had more coverage. You know they have a new foundation coming out later this week that is going to be full coverage and with spf 50. For full coverage foundation, I'm loving Dior Forever. It's AH-mazing!!! I love that concealer, it does really work!!

  8. I love that cc cream so much. I have my Lingerie de peau foundation for full coverage, but I use that cc cream for every day. I need to try that concealer!

  9. I've heard nothing but great things about that cc cream and so many people have mentioned it lately! I might need to try it. I'm looking for something with spf!

  10. I use the same primer, bronzer and I love that Too Faced palette as well and work with that second row when I use it! I have the IT CC cream but I hate it. It just sits on top my skin and doesn't really blend in well no matter what I do. My favorite holy grail full coverage foundation is hands down Estee Lauder Double Wear. It is the best best best!!! I buy the RT sponge for a third of the price of the beauty blender. The first time I bought the BB I about cried when it started falling apart a little and I had to throw it out and refused to pay $20 again. I can only make them least like 3-4 months with using them and washing them daily, so I would rather only spend $6 for the RT and I feel like it works just as well. I cant go back to a foundation brush either.

  11. I FREAKING love It Cosmetics!! You should really try their foundation if you want more coverage, it's amazing! Their mascara is my fave too, along with the under eye! I use to use that exact eyeshadow primer but once I ran out, I never got it again, I think it's time to pick one up!

  12. These sound like great products! I am so boring when it comes to makeup haha.

  13. I need to try the bye bye undereyes! I look like I haven't slept in years haha I haven't redone my makeup routine in forever, but I promised myself when I get a new job, I'm going to treat myself big time :)

  14. I'll have to get one of those sponges. I've never heard of them before. I'm always looking for a better way to apply foundation!

  15. I love posts like this too! I haven't used any TF eye shadows in a long time, but there used to be a pinkish shade that I loved. I've still never tried a beauty blender and I'm not sure why-- I actually got the Real Techniques version forever ago, but never used it.
