Beauty 411: Daily Makeup Favorites

Welcome to Beauty 411!
Today’s Topic is Daily Makeup Favorites

We have featured a lot of our favorite beauty products in the past, which is why I have decided to start a little series called Beauty 411. Aside from our usual themed days, Beauty 411 will be a random series where we will talk about different beauty related topics. We also have some guest bloggers and beauty experts lined up and will be joining us for unique Beauty 411 articles.

To start off the series, I thought I would share just a few of my favorite things and I’m not talking about raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. I actually have 4 makeup products that I use daily and will be sharing them with you today.

1. MAC Cosmetics – Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
Price: $15.00 | Website

To me, there is nothing easier than applying eye-liner with a brush. I find it much easier than liquid eye-liner and also the pencils. Trust me on this. With the right brush, you and your eye-liner can conquer the world… or something like that.

Ultra-smooth, Fluidline’s gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes.

2. MAC Cosmetics – Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
Price: $17.50 | Website

I love my paint pot. Because of it’s pale color, I also use it as a primer on my eyelids (and sometimes even on my lips.. shhh, don’t tell).

Paint pot is a highly pigmented eye colour that goes on creamy but dries to an intense, vibrant finish. Long-wearing, colourfast. Creates seamless coverage without weight or caking. Blends smoothly over the lids. Cream-based, can be mixed with M A C shadows and liners.

3. L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara
Price: $9.50 each | Website

Looking for an amazing mascara that really lives up to the hype? I am not getting paid to say this so please listen to me when I tell you, BUY THIS MASCARA. I have about 10 different ones in my makeup drawer and this is my absolute favorite. So much so, I have actually moved the other mascaras to a different drawer. This is my one and only mascara love. 2gether4ever.

For clump-free, perfectly defined longer lashes. L’oreal introduces new telescopic clean definition mascara for lashes with telescopic length, perfect definition, and a clump-free, natural end result. The patented no clump brush cleanly defines and lengthens up to 60 %.

4. MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Lipstick – Lady Gaga 1
Price: No Longer Available | Website

I hate to do this to you because this item is sold out and certain stores are selling the final stock of this lipstick but it’s my absolute favorite. It’s creamy, matte, conditioning and beautiful. While the pink version is no longer available online, you can find the tan version.

Do you have any products that you use daily? Is there something you absolutely can’t live without?

Stay tuned for next time on Beauty 411 and… just want to say that I was not in any way compensated for this post.
