When working long hours, it is important for me to find beauty products that will last all day! I am a make-up junkie and love the feeling of walking into Sephora or Ulta. I have tested many products, but finally found make-up products that blend well, last all day, and looks fabulous on the skin!

For the face, I am obsessed with Estee Lauder Double Wear! This foundation is like glue and lasts ALL DAY LONG! It is a full coverage foundation, and it is my favorite one to wear in photo shoots. Double wear foundation blends perfectly with a foundation brush ( my favorite brush is It Cosmetics) or a beauty blender.
I also love drug store options, and the foundation I found from the drugstore that stays put for hours and is full coverage is Covergirl Outlast foundation. Honestly, I love to mix Estee Lauder and covergirl together when making that perfect shade for me.
When I mention these foundations lasting all day, I mean it. I typically have my foundation on around 6:30 in the mornings, get off work around 3:40, and then I go to the gym. So, ladies, these foundations are even sweat proof. THEY ARE A MUST!
Eyelid concelaeor: MAC soft ochre paint pot is my absolute favorite eyelid concealer. Yes, I apply this on my eye-lids as a primer. Paint pot cancels out any redness and helps my eye shadow stay fresh all day without creasing. It is also great for covering and hiding any blemishes. If your eye shadow does not last, paint pot is a must for you!
Under eye Concelaer: I have tried many under eye concealers and have fell in love with two. Tarte rainforest under eye concealer is my favorite. It blends amazing with a beauty blender, does not crease, and is medium to full coverage. I use undereye concealer to brighten, and this does just that!
My second favorite under eye drugstore concealer is Fit Me from Maybelline. This is so similar to any high-end concealer I have used. I also blend this out with a beauty blender.
Hands down, my favorite blush, that lasts all day without needing touched up is from Tarte. I love the 12-hour amazonian clay blush. This blush is so pigmented and truly lasts 12 hours, a teachers dream!
My favorite bronzer palette is from Kat Von D. I mix all three shades together and use it to bronze up my outer forehead and underneath my cheek bones. This bronzer palette is long wearing, and has the perfect shades.
Becca highlihter in Opal, is hands down the best highlighter on the market. A little goes a long way, it lasts all day, and looks amazing in photos.
My favorite drugstore highlighter is Elf baked highlighter in moonlight pearl. Recently, I have found myself reaching for this highlter. It easily compares to high-end highlighters and is under $5.
When taking photos, I love mixing Becca and Elf highlighters for that extra glow!
There is only one face powder I will use. I claim this face powder for helping my make-up last all day, keeping shine away, and keeping my make-up in place. Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder is my favorite beauty item. This powder makes any foundation flawless, fills in poors, and blends like a dream! I dip my beauty blender in this powder to set my under eye concealer and use a powder brush to set the rest of the face.
The only eye shadow I have worn in a year is from Too Faced. I have tried many eye shadows, but they crease and do not blend well….. UNTIL I used Too Faced. Ladies, this eye shadow is so pigmented, blends quickly, and does not crease. Having an eyeshadow that blends easily makes applying makeup quicker, and quick is a must when waking up early everyday. I love the chocolate bar and peach palettes.
I use It Cosmetics eyebrow pencil. It is the perfect shade, easy to use, and of course lasts all day long.
For mascara, I mix two different ones from the drugstore. Covergirl lash blast and L’Oreal voluminous. These mascaras mixed, creates the perfect volume and length.
