I wanted to compile a list of some of my favorite products – beauty/ makeup / etc. that I actually spend money on. These are just a few of my go-to favorites !
- Favorite Conditioner
Aveda Cherry Almond Softening Conditioner
This is by far the best conditioner I’ve found. It detangles my hair effortlessly, leaving it soft, non-greasy, and silky after washing.
2. My favorite concealer
Tarte Shape Tape concealer in color “light sand”
3. My favorite hair styling product:
Leaves my hair shinier and healthier looking than ever. This single product has improved my hair’s appearance so much.

4. Favorite makeup brush:
Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection 203 Tapered Shadow
I just ordered another one of this brush on Amazon after searching for it forever. It’s the only brush I’ve found that has been easy for me to blend eyeshadow with. I will leave the link here for you:
5. Favorite everyday foundation:
ISDIN Skin Drops in color “SAND”
I know I talk about ISDIN skin drops often on my story, but they’re not a sponsored product ! I LOVE these skin drops because they’re light weight and I just put a few drops on over my moisturizer using a foundation brush and it looks like I have zero makeup on- just perfectly clear skin.
My only complaint is that they do not come in light enough colors. The lightest color : “SAND” just matches my skin, but if I were at my palest ever they would be too dark. If you have super fair skin, these aren’t the best option for you. BUT if you have my skin tone or darker these are AMAZING.
Here is the link to buy these:
6. My favorite foundation for full glam
Too Faced Peach Perfect
My foundation for when I’m going full glam is different from my everyday foundation.
When I do full glam makeup, I spend about 35-45 minutes on my makeup. My everyday makeup routine is more like 5-10 minutes.
Full glam involves under-eye concealer, highlighter, contour, nose contour, setting powder etc.
The skin drops aren’t as good for this routine because they’re so natural and blend into everything. This provides a better base for the rest of my makeup but still feels lightweight. I HATE feeling cakey. Also this one smells SO good.
Here is the link on Sephora:
7. My favorite self tanner:
Quicktan Bronzing Spray in Medium Dark
I actually don’t self tan my whole body so I can’t speak to how streaky this may or may not be for arms and legs.
HOWEVER, I love a light spray of this on my face and neck when I’m starting to get creepy pale. I’ve also sprayed my arms before and it came out great. I like to spray over my finished foundation and blot the speckles away with a foundation brush. It makes my makeup glow more and I look nicely bronzed.
8. My favorite setting/finishing powder:
NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder
While I HATE the price of this one- it goes back to me hating feeling cakey. Its the most translucent powder I’ve been able to find- just enough to take away the melt/ shine look when your makeup gets oily. It doesn’t leave a white cast like other powders. For me, it’s worth the $37.

9. My favorite eyebrow pencil
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer
I use color: “Medium Brown”. This is the holy grail of eyebrow pencils. Triangular tip- retractable .. goes on smooth- easy to define and shape brows. Will never switch!

10. My Favorite Moisturizer
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
My favorite moisturizer for a long time. Hydrates my skin very well, without clogging my pores/ making me break out. Doesn’t leave me feeling greasy and doesn’t feel heavy.
I hope you liked this post on my favorite non sponsored products right now! I will do another post with more soon if this one gets positive feedback. ?
