Hi my beauties! It’s Friday and today I decided to take a tag from YouTube and translate it to my blog. I found the “If All My Makeup Vanished” through Lauren DellaFera but Emily Noel was the original creator of this tag. You can watch Lauren’s video here. This tag intrigued me because I had never even thought about it before, but it’s a completely plausible situation. So, I sat down and started going through my makeup and what ten products I would repurchase first if it were to happen. I surprised myself by passing on eyeliner and bronzer. I’m still new to bronzer so that wasn’t much of a surprise. I usually love eyeliner but when I considered it, I loved other pieces more.
Let’s start with the face, shall we? For my foundation I chose my IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Fair. It is a very high coverage foundation considering that it is a CC+ Cream. I like that and the fact that it contains an SPF of 50. Since I’m so fair I’m always wearing sunscreen to protect my skin year round. For my powder, I chose my very reliable Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 003 Natural. The blush I picked is the Baked Blush-n-Brighten by Laura Gellar in the shade ‘Tropic Hues’. I think that this is the top in my Top 5 favorite blushes. It’s very natural but gives the cheek a nice wash of color. The last piece I chose for my face was highlighter. I simply cannot live without a good highlighter. I picked my Becca Champagne Pop highlighter. This was one of my first highlighters, not this one but you know what I mean, and I LOVE IT! It is buttery smooth, it can be subtle or blinding, and it just looks good on different skin tones. I’m super pale and it works on me, so that’s gotta say something.
For my eyes, I chose my primer first and for that I chose the NYX Jumbo Pencil in 604 Milk. I love using this as a base, since it’s white it makes the shadows really POP! I just found out they do make a white cream eye primer, but I have about four of these so I think I’ll be sticking to them- hah! For my brows I chose a tinted gel instead of powder or pencil/crayon. I picked out my Soap and Glory Brow Archery Gel in Blonde Luck that I have been absolutely adoring the past week or two. It’s quick and simple and you really don’t need a mirror! Just swipe it through and it tames your brows and gives them a little bit of oomph with whichever color you want. Now, I skipped picking an eyeliner because I think you can skip it if you have a good mascara. The mascara I chose was my Too Faced Better Than Sex. I find that this mascara kind of does it all for me, it gives me volume and curl and separation and I just love it. This (well not this one) was the first high end mascara I let myself purchase after trying a sample and using it to the last little drop. I now have a backup of it in my backup box because, while I use a lot of mascaras from different brands and with different formulas, this is one I will always repurchase. The last thing I chose for my eyes is an eyeshadow palette. I certainly am not lacking in things to pick for this option. I finally settled on my Morphe Jaclyn Hill palette (the original). This palette contains what anyone would need for practically any look with neutral browns, bright colors, roses and pinks, golds, and taupes. It also has a nice combination of mattes and shimmers/glitters which I love because that way I won’t have to pull in another palette or individual shadows to complete the look. You really do have it all there right in front of you.
For my lips I chose the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Sucre. I chose this because it can be sheered out or put on full cover to go with any look or time of day. It is a gorgeous flattering rosey-red-pink (I know, terrible description) and it’s twist up! The bottom of the crayon pulls out and is a sharpener since after continued use the tip dulls down. While it says matte it’s more creme than matte. It doesn’t have the staying power of a matte liquid lipstick but I don’t mind because it’s a quick fix to re-apply it.
Finally, I HAVE to set my face or else it would all be for naught. I picked my favorite face setting spray, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I know, I know, so many people love this you might be wary and think it might be sponsored or that they’re just saying what people want to hear. BUT. This setting spray is no joke and the people who rave about it are really raving about it. This is the best setting spray I have ever used. The others have been good but this, I have to say, is Holy Grail status for me. The mist is fine and the pump works really well.
There you go! What are some of the products you would replace if all of your makeup ran away?

I hope you have a great start to your weekend and I will see you all tomorrow. XO
