My Current Makeup Favorites

As a Sugar Baby, looking your best can be a key factor in attracting your dream Sugar Daddy.  That’s why I’m always scouring YouTube and Instagram for the latest beauty news, launches, and trends.  Here’s a look at my favorite makeup products—and while I know there are many, many more amazing products out there, these are what I’m currently obsessed with.  Enjoy!

Eyes

First things first: primer.  It’s a necessary first step for any flawless, perfectly blended eye look.  When I sit down to do my makeup, I’ll start by putting the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer all over the lids.  

Then I’ll follow with eye shadow.  Now, for someone who loves makeup as much as I do, I actually don’t have that many palettes.  I figure, why pay upwards of $40 or $50 for a palette when I’ll maybe use like 2 or 3 shades?  Instead, I prefer to buy a lot of single shadows and build my own palette from there—ColourPop pressed shadow pans are great for that.  Otherwise, I find myself turning to the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette again and again.  

I actually don’t typically wear liner, and instead go straight to curling my lashes and finishing off with mascara.  The Essence Get Big Lashes in Triple Black is amazing—and less than $5 at Ulta!  Before I found that, the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara was my ride-or-die for years.

Face

Since my skin is super sensitive I actually don’t wear foundation. Instead I work to keep my skin in great shape. All I really need is a little concealer.  My current favorite is the Makeup Revolution concealer—it has great coverage and is so affordable!  Before that, I loved the Makeup Forever Ultra HD concealer.  The ColourPop concealer has a great formula as well, with tons of shades to choose from.

For contouring, I use the Kat Von D Shade & Light powder palette—I typically blend some of the darker shades into the hollows of my cheekbones, then take the yellow highlight powder to set my under eye concealer.  I’ll then blend out my contour with bronzer—currently, the Butter Bronzer from Physicians Formula.  

Then, I’ll highlight with the Becca highlighter, which is a brand-new favorite to me, though I know it’s been on the market for awhile.  Before that, I was using the Jeffree Star skin frost, and before that, the ColourPop super shock highlighter.  After highlight, I’ll finish with blush, though I have yet to find a favorite.  Tarte and Hourglass blushes are definitely on my wish list.

Lips

Before I put anything on my lips, I’ll scrub them with a Jeffree Star lip scrub—they are literally the sweetest, tastiest scrubs ever!  Then I’ll prime my lips with the ColourPop lip primer, and then work on whatever lip look I’m creating.  I prefer a creamy lip liner, so the Kat Von D, ColourPop, and MAC Pro Longwear liners are my favorites.  My favorite matte lipstick is the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lip, and my favorite lipstick formula is the MAC Cremesheen, though the Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick is a close second.  Buxom, Marc Jacobs, NYX and ColourPop also make incredible glosses!

Brushes

My brush collection is mostly a mix of Morphe and MAC brushes, with some ColourPop and Makeup Geek brushes sprinkled in.  For eyes, I love using the Morphe M511 to lay down a light transition shade, then go in to the crease with the Morphe M433.  The Makeup Geek Defined Crease brush is great for blending and defining the crease, and the ColourPop Medium Shader brush is great for packing color onto the lid.  For the face, I absolutely love the Kat Von D Brush #25 for packing powder onto the under eye area, and the NARS Yachiyo brush #27 for contouring.  

Have fun and happy Sugaring!
