everyday makeup recommendations.

When I polled you all about everyday makeup, I got an overwhelming amount of passionate responses with your favorite products! I love that we can leverage this community to help each other out. Especially on a topic like makeup that is a flooded market with anything from drugstore products to bougie brands. There were some clear LOVES that quickly stood out as collective favorites and if I didn't already own them, they were an immediate add to cart. So, if you are overwhelmed and need some recs on where to start in the makeup department, here are the top Everyday Best Buy recs from this community! If there was a close tie, I have listed the top few options.


  1. Nars Creamy Concealer - the top recommended one that helps correct, contour and highlight.

  2. Tarte Shapetape - it was a close second to Nars. I own and love this concealer, it is so creamy and blends in well


  1. it CC+ Cream Illumination - offers full coverage and has SPF which is a huge win. This is a cult fav for sure.

  2. Ilia Foundation Serum - I love the idea of a serum infused foundation that isn't heavy. A vast range of tints are offered too.


  1. Benefit Hoola Bronzer - definitely came in 1st place, but the other two had so many votes as well it was hard to narrow the list down

  2. Nars Laguna - this specific bronzer tone was a love

  3. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer - I can't get over the price point on this bronzer, a drugstore option for those looking for something more affordable


Nars Orgasm - specifically Nars Orgasm blush tone was by far and away the fav


  1. Urban Decay Naked Palettes - no surprise this is the most recommended eyeshadow palette. I have been using this for forever and I can validate it is amazing!

  2. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick - if you prefer an eyeshadow stick, this has a creamy, easy to apply formula that so many of you love


  1. Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner - these two eyeliners were equally recommended as good options for a waterproof liquid eyeliner.

  2. Stila Eyeliner


Thrive Causemetics - I thought the vote for mascara would be all over the map, but this one was a clear favorite and many people said nothing compares. And you are supporting a good cause, for every product purchase they help give back and empower women


  1. Anastasia Beverly Hills was the most recommended brand by far for eyebrow products! The Brow Wiz and Brow Gel are the clear must haves, I ordered both.

  2. Benefit Gimme Brow - the mid tier price point of the three, a volumizing tinted gel

  3. NYX Eyebrow Pencil - only $10 and a dupe of some of the top brands on the market. I love this brand for their Butter Gloss lip gloss as well.

Makeup Brushes

Real Technique Brushes - I cannot get over how affordable this set is - under $20 for 5 brushes and a blender!
