Happy Thursday! I love a good Makeup Tag and who makes a better one than beauty Youtuber Jaclyn Hill. She has created a Ride or Die Makeup Tag, where you pick your favorite makeup item in each category. I thought this was a fun tag to share with you all, so check out my makeup Ride or Die picks below! I would love to know what you would pick as your favorites! -Habon xo
Primer– I just started using primer recently and it has seriously upgraded my whole makeup game. I’m currently lusting over Urban Decay’s Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer Potion. I use this first right after my moisturizer and it just makes my makeup look amazing!
Foundation– I’m obsessed with NARS Sheer Glow foundation. It gives just enough coverage without feeling cakey, and that dewy glowy skin I’m always after. I also love their endless shade options which ensures its women of color friendly, which let’s face it is hard to come by with a lot of companies. I use the shade New Guinea and it compliments me really well!
Concealer– Speaking of NARS I love their Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Amande. It goes on super smooth and gives me the perfect coverage without looking too over done.
Compact/Loose Powder– I’m not a compact or loose powder type of girl. I hate the matte finish, probably because I already have dry skin and it feels like loose powder intensifies it. So I don’t have any to tag as my ride or die.
Under Eye Setting Powder- My sister-in-law picked me up the Sacha Buttercup setting powder and I couldn’t be happier. It has the perfect yellow tone that compliments me and doesn’t leave that ugly white flashback. This is the only product I use to bake with and gives me all day coverage.
Eyeliner/Kohl– I love MAC’s Smolder eye liner. It’s goes on super dark and smooth, no need to reapply. Later on it smolders to a sultry look, hence the name.
Brows– I can’t choose just one for this category, but I feel like both do different things. When I want a more natural look, I use the Spiked Eye Brow pencil from MAC to fill in my brows. When I’m ready to SLAY, I bring out my Dipbrow from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It gives me the perfect On Fleek look! A little goes a long way with this product, so make sure you use the tiniest amount.
Eyeshadow Palette- If it’s pink and glittery, I’m mostly going to love it! That’s probably why I’m obsessed with Urban Decay’s Naked3 palette. It comes with the prettiest rose toned hues that makes doing my eyes so much fun. If you tend to love neutral tones than this palette might not be for you, but it’s hands down my fav!
Mascara– Although I use eyelash extensions for my top lashes, I like my bottom lashes to look just as long and fabulou.s I achieve that look with the Extended Play Gigablack mascara from MAC. I love how it extends out each lash for that Glam look I love!
Blush– I love blush! I feel like it brings my whole look together and adds just enough color. My current fav is Love Joy from MAC. It’s the perfect nude/pink shade!
Bronzer– I’m obsessed with the Mineralized Skinfinish in Dark Deep by MAC. I’ve had this compact forever! A little goes a long way and gives the right amount of sun-kissed glow, and who doesn’t want that?!
Lipstick– It’s so hard to choose one, but if I had to pick one as my Ride or Die it would be Whirl by MAC, but only with my Chestnut lip liner. Together they create the BEST nude lip that compliments my complexion perfectly.
Highlight- There’s so many good highlights out right now, but I’ve always loved That Glow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I love the fact that it comes in a palette, so I have more options to choose from. I use three out of the four shades and my favorite has to be Dripping in Gold, which will make people say, “That Glow Though”!
Perfume- It’ll come as no surprise that my absolute favorite perfume is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I’ve bought and received numerous perfumes over the years, but I feel like nothing can compare to this classic. It’s light and sweet enough yet has its own distinct scent that no one compete with.
