Makeup Must Haves: Eyes

So excited for my first beauty blog! This is the first of a three part series I’m doing. I will start with eyes today and focusing on my current favorites. 

I have to start by saying that I am not a makeup artist! So take everything with a grain of salt. These are all products I love. I have so much fun with makeup and trying new things to find what works for me. 

I really like shopping at Ulta because I love their rewards program! But I also shop frequently at Target, MAC and Sephora. I find I get the most help from the employees at MAC and Sephora. I trust their advice and will always ask for help if I have any questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! And don’t feel pressure to buy something just because they recommend it. You are the only who is paying for it and has to wear it! 


1. Eyeshadow Primer I apply this before I apply my eyeshadow to keep my eyelids from getting creases or smudging throughout the day. I rarely skip this step because I do feel like it makes a big difference in keeping my shadow in place!

MAC – Paints, Bare Canvas This is a neutral color and I apply this with my pinky finger. I have loved this for years!

Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion (anti-aging) This is anti-aging and is clear. This comes with a little wand to apply it on eyelid. This one is great if you don’t want the color from the MAC primer to show.


2. Eyebrows

This is a must for blondes! My eyebrows are so light and adding some color to get them to be seen is something I never skip. I am obsessed with eyebrows! LOL I think having great brows totally changes the way a face looks. If you’ve never colored your eyebrows before, I highly recommend it! You don’t have to go crazy and make them really dark. I actually have a fear of looking like the “lady in red” chick from Dodgeball. Ha!! 

Look at this before and after! BIG difference! Seriously… Just look up “eyebrows before and after” on Pinterest.

IT Cosmetics – Heavenly Luxe Brush #12

This brush was a game changer for my brows. It’s made specifically made for filling in your brows and I really like the way it applies the Build A Brow cream linked below.

IT Cosmetics – Build a Brow

This is a cream based color that is waterproof! I just recently started using this and I love it!

Catrice – Eye Brow Set

This is a great brow set! It comes with two colors and has a brush and mini tweezers in the bottom, which is great for traveling and then you don’t need to buy an additional brush if you’re just trying out the whole filling in the eyebrow look for the first time. 


3. Eyeliner + Mascara

I use a lot of different liners, but these two are my go-to choices! Also, I have tried soo many different mascaras and this one is by FAR my fav. 

Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara

The name of mascara… Need I say more?

MAC – Teddy Eyeliner

This is a great brown and everyday color. I also feel like pencil is easy to apply!

Rimmel – ScandalEyes

This liquid liner applies dark and so smooth. But I do feel like liquid liner is just harder to apply! I’m still working on how to do this! LOL


4. Eyeshadow

I have an obsession with eyeshadow kits! I have been loving this one because it’s great for everyday use. 

Tarte – In Bloom

These colors are easy to apply for a natural look but also have beautiful darker colors if you’re going for a darker, smoky eye. I have been using this almost everyday!

MAC – Blending Brush

This is my all time favorite blending brush. Must have!

Hope you guys are having a great day! Would love to know if you try any of these out and if you like it or not! Or if you have any favorites, I’d love to hear!

See other products I love!
