Confession: I peek into everyone’s medicine cabinet every time I go into someone’s bathroom. It’s like my rite of passage. I need to know every product that goes into your routine if our friendship is going to continue. From your daily SPF to the mascara you can’t live without it, it’s almost as important as your sense of humor.
A pretty obvious equivalent to rummaging through your friends’ personal property is the ever-so-popular “what’s in my makeup bag.” We’re getting the inside scoop from beauty blogger Sabrina Shorb of The Beauty Look Book on her holy grail makeup products that are perfect for everyday wear. Get ready to spend the next hour adding them all to your cart. Your makeup routine is about to get a nice refresh!
GIORGIO ARMANI BEAUTY
This is the best natural, medium-coverage foundation I've tried. I love this for the shade range and natural, glowy coverage. This evens out the skin in a natural way without looking heavy or cakey. Be sure to set with a good powder!
NARS makes the best all-around concealer for under the eyes, brightening, or spot concealing. This works wonders to cover redness around the nose. The creamy texture blends in well with virtually any foundation brand or formula and doesn't crease. It also has an impressive color range.
This is a luminous blush and highlighter in one. The blushes give the skin a soft glow with a hint of color. My favorite shade is Incandescent Electra for a pretty, soft coral and champagne mix.
This is hands-down the best setting and blurring pressed powder. It sets makeup perfectly while evening out the skin, and it blurs imperfections with a few sweeps. I've used up and repurchased so many of these I have lost count!
The best mascara for volume, definition, and holding a curl! No smudging or flaking. It even holds up in humid Florida weather during the summer months.
This is my favorite everyday lid color — it's so versatile! You can use it alone for a nice lid highlight or an effortless wash of color. I also use it as an eyeshadow base for powder eyeshadows to help them adhere better to my lids.
This is my go-to, everyday neutral rose color. It looks good on everyone I've seen it on! It's probably one of my most-worn lipstick colors.
PAT MCGRATH LABS
Pat McGrath Labs has the best matte lipstick formula on the market. It's amazing even for those who don't like matte lips because it has a soft, velvet finish without looking or feeling dry. It also has impressive pigment. The formula glides onto the lips like magic, and they have great color options for both neutral and bold lip lovers!
FENTY BEAUTY BY RIHANNA
This is the prettiest lip gloss to make the lips look luscious and full. All of the colors are universally flattering and suitable for any kind of makeup look.
These are the best cream highlighters on the market. It doesn't look overdone or too frosty, and it gives the skin that beautiful, fresh glow-from-within look. It's perfect for anywhere you want a nice highlight.
