Hi everyone! Today I thought I’d do a nice little makeup tag! Ha, okay it’s a huge tag that’s been going around. This is my ride or die makeup tag, created by Jaclyn Hill (Youtube) and I’ve seen quite a few people doing this tag. The basic premise is if you were stranded on a desert island, what makeup would you take? Now that I think about it I would really just want tubs of sunscreen but you know, imagination!
Here we go!
Back to my all time favorite, of course! My primer pick is the Maybelline Master Prime Blur & Smooth. I love it because it’s such a nice feeling, it doesn’t leave my face feeling so slimy and it really helps my makeup last throughout the day.
My favorite foundation? I went back and forth between a few for this one but ultimately decided on the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able foundation. I love this foundation because it’s so quick and easy to use. One layer and you have a really nice coverage, plus it goes on so evenly and effortlessly.
I don’t often use concealer but when I do I reach for the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. I find that it matches my foundations really well and blends out evenly as well.
I’m going to go with the Besame French Vanilla Brightening Powder. I’m forever getting compliments when I use this powder. One friend of mine even insisted that I never use anything else the first time she saw me wearing it! It’s that good!
Under Eye Setting Powder
Ummm, I didn’t know this was supposed to be a different thing to be honest. I guess I’ll go with the same Besame powder as well.
I have really loved the Benefit Rockateur blush. It’s a shimmery rose gold blush that I’ve used for years. I really love this one! I still have my original and I’ve had it for a few years now.
I love the bronzer in the Urban Decay Naked Flushed face palette. I feel like it’s the perfect shade for me and very pigmented so a little goes a long way. It is also either a bonus or a cheat as it also has a highlight and blush in there as well.
My favorite highlight is the Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Peach Mosaic. I feel like this is also one that is easy to overdo it with but it looks amazing once it’s on.
I love, love, love Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes. My last tube of this broke apart, literally, so it couldn’t close and I had to throw it out as it would dry out before I could use it up, but I remember how much I loved this one. It never clumped and looked great every time.
I would have to take a red lipstick with me. I chose the Besame Red Velvet lipstick. This was the shade worn by Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter in the tv show Agent Carter. Unfortunately the show has been cancelled but the lipstick is still very much available!
I chose an old favorite for this one, the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill. I haven’t used this in awhile so I was excited to dig it back out. I have to throw this in my handbag!
I don’t really like gloss but I found a pink BareMinerals marvelous Moxie in Party Starter. I guess I could live without it but I just wanted to pick a pink lip product!
I actually don’t use lashes so I don’t have a favorite for this!
I have to go with the beautiful Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I almost never reach for this one anymore as I have so many palettes but when I do, it instantly takes me back to when I first started discovering makeup and it may sound weird but it makes me feel like me.
I chose the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I swear by this setting spray and always use it when I know I need my makeup to last.
My favorite perfume is the Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia perfume. I love Jo Malone perfumes and they last forever on my skin, which not a lot of perfumes do! I use it sparingly and I feel like a princess every time I spray it on.
And that’s my Ride or Die Makeup Tag! I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I’m still really upset regarding the election results so I was feeling uninspired until I came across this tag so I’m really glad I found it again. Let me know if you’ve done the tag yourself!
Thanks for reading!
