After reading/watching a lot of beauties do the Jaclyn Hill Ride or Die Makeup Tag, I couldn’t resist to do it myself! Choosing one specific product for each category seems tough since I love changing shades up and trying new brands. Nevertheless, I am going not going to think super hard about these and just go with my gut!
Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm – Sensitive version. This is assuming we’re talking about the longevity of makeup – primers for radiance, etc are another story that I won’t get into! I’ve tried numerous primers over the years and have rarely been impressed by their effects. I find that the Nivea one prolongs my makeup just as well and even better than all the primers I’ve tried.
Foundation: This one is SO tough because I love my Urban Decay Naked Skin Perfector and Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation equally but I’ll say MUFE since the UD – according to their website – is a cream, not foundation. MUFE’s Ultra HD Foundation is great because it provides a natural finish and is also buildable for full coverage.
Concealer: Urban Decay’s Naked Concealer is my favorite formula – it’s not drying and doesn’t crease like other concealers tend to do. However, I’ve seen tons of hype on the new Tarte concealer so I might pick that up just to compare!
Corrector: LA Girls hands down. They’re so affordable and work just as well as any of the other drugstore and high end correctors I’ve used. Moreover, the formula blends so easily and I love the brush tip – it makes applying it quicker and precise! I also think they’re perfect for my olive/warm skin tone..I feel that there are a few brands out there that don’t make shades friendly for us tanner/deeper tones.
Face Powder: RCMA No Color Powder for sure! All I want in a face powder is to set my makeup without a cakey result and this does exactly that! Plus, it’s super affordable and works better than some of the high end ones I’ve tried.
Under Eye Setting Powder: I use my RCMA Powder for under eye setting as well. I don’t think I’ve ever bought another powder just to set my under eyes..but that’s because I rarely use concealer there!
Bronzer: I legit never bronze but in the off chance that I do, I pull one out of my mom’s Mac collection!
Highlight: This one is SO hard but I have to say Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. Becca makes my favorite highlight formula – you can’t go wrong with them!
Mascara: I rarely wear mascara but when I do it’s Urban Decay’s Perversion – it gives the perfect length and volume to my lashes!
Lipstick: At this moment I’d say it’s Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick in BO$$. I’ve been waiting for a nude liquid matte lip collection to come out that would suit my skintone for the LONGEST time. I feel like Bare Minerals hit the spot because I am obsessed with not only BO$$, but also a few other shades like Friendship and Juju! Besides the shade, I love this lipstick because it’s a mousy formula that dries down completely matte! It does take time to dry down completely but the end result is worth it!
Lip Gloss: Pretty much any shade by Buxom – I love the minty sensation they leave on my lips!
Lashes: I have never worn falsies L
Eye Shadow Palette: Right now it’s Tarte’s Swamp Queen Palette! It’s PERFECTION! Everything from the shades to the formula to the packaging – I love it!
Setting Spray: I wouldn’t say it’s my ride or die but I’ve only been using the NYX Setting Spray. The other ones I’ve tried don’t make much of a difference but at the same time, NYX’s doesn’t impress me either. I’m still searching for a holy grail!
Perfume: Gucci Guilty! 1. Because it smells amazing and 2. Have you seen the commercial? YAS CHRIS EVANS
Blush: Nars Blush in Dolce Vita – it’s the first blush I ever bought and my favorite to this day!
Well there ya have it! Do we have any of the same ride or die products? Link me if you did this on your blog/youtube channel, I’d love to check it out!
