My Everyday Makeup Musts

I am not a huge makeup user but there are a few products that I use everyday. Funny enough, they all deal with my eyes. Being a mom of two kids, I tend to look like the walking dead when I wake up. I need whatever help I can get! haha

First up, concealer.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer

This has been my favorite brand. I've even tried YSL's and HATED it. Goes to show you that just because it's expensive doesn't mean it works! I have the "highlighter" shade as well and use it in the corner of my eyes to help brighten them. (you can find this at Target)

Second, eyeliner.

 Benefit They're Real Gel liner

 I've always preferred liquid liner over pencil because the pencil would always leave me looking like I had black eyes. So when I heard of this "gel" liner, I was very curious to try it. I had only heard good things about it and thankfully it was true for me as well. This stuff goes on and STAYS on until I take it off. I read a review of a woman who said she put it on and went to the gym, sweat a ton, and it didn't come off in the least bit. Hashtag WIN. (you can find this at Ulta)

Third, mascara.

                           NYC Sky Rise           L'oreal Voluminous Butterfly           Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam

My eyelashes are weird. They get used to the mascara, so once I use up a tube I have to switch to another type of mascara or it just doesn't work. Anyone else's lashes do that? Therefore, I have a handful of mascara types that I rotate. Above are the few that I currently have on rotation. They are all under $10...the one on the far left is even under $3!!! (you can find these at Target)

And there you have it, the three items that keep me from looking like a zombie :p
