There are certain makeup products that I just CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT. Yes, that sounds dramatic, but it’s a true statement!

Today’s post is focusing on JUST those products that I use to achieve a more natural makeup look. But don’t get the “natural” word confused. It’s one that still shows up on photos taken with friends (or my kids & hubby!) and doesn’t leave me looking washed out!!

It’s the biggest complaint I hear from clients – “I thought I put on enough makeup, but, when I saw a picture of myself, I looked dead – like I had on no makeup at all!”

We’ve all been there…am I right?

Most of my “can’t live without” makeup products are the ones that I know I can throw on in a hurry, still look super put together and fresh-faced, BUT that don’t take too much skill or time spent on my makeup.

Being that I am now 44, a working makeup artist for over 20+ years, and I wear makeup every.single.day, I have definitely tried my fair share of products on the market!! And with aging up, my needs and wants for certain products/ looks have changed from what worked in my 20’s and 30’s.

The biggest key for looking good in photos, is to apply enough COLOR. Not necessarily heavier makeup, just inject enough color into your eyes, cheeks, and of course lips.
This post is created in hopes that if you’re just tired/bored of your current makeup routine, this list may give you some ideas to jump-start trying something new for yourself! I get most of my very favorite makeup products from trying something a trusted friend has recommended to me – and so that’s how I want you to feel about this post!
Without further ado, here is my list of the personal products I wear on myself when I want to look polished, not overdone.
