ULTIMATE RESOURCE LIST
✿ for taylordorothy.com ✿
When someone is doing it well, I want to know where they bought that cute dress, what brand of lipstick they’re wearing, and what they use for such clear skin. I’m always on the lookout to try new things, and I love a good list. I figured there have got to be other people like me out there! I’m happy to do research, but I just love when I go to a blog and they tell me exactly what they use and where their stuff is from! So if you’re a curious cat like me, keep reading, because here are all of my must-haves in one place.
♥ My favorite things, from my life to yours! ♥
♡ MY GO-TO MAKE UP:
CONCEALER: NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in shade 02 for under-eyes and 03 the rest of my face, NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer (I’m the shade Custard, but I wouldn’t use something so yellow under my eyes), and LA Girl HD Pro Concealer in 02.
POWDER: Rimmel Stay Matte in 004 Sandstorm. (I hardly use this, unless my CC cream is too dewy!)
BRONZER: Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil in Light/Medium.
HIGHLIGHT: Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone and ABH Mooncild Glow Kit (which my brother got me for my birthday and I LOVE! Amazing fun colors like lavender and blue highlight! 💕)
FACE BRUSHES: Real Techniques Expert Face Brush is what I use for all concealers and foundations. I am in LOVE with that brush. MAC 129 for blush. MAC 168 for contour. Random no-name fluffy brush for bronzer. Ulta contour brush for highlight.
EYE LINER– Sephora waterproof eye pencil in Black Lace. This is the only eyeliner I’ve EVER found that doesn’t smudge in the upper lash line, and it’s only $10! I strictly use this for tightlining.
EYESHADOW PENCILS– NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk for inner eye highlight or as a base for dull shadows.
EYE SHADOWS: Urban Decay NAKED Palette still (mostly for Half Baked- love a gold), but 99% of the time I use the Lorac Mega Pro 3. Others- Lorac Pro 2. Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette (best drugstore palette ever). NARS Persia. MAC Coppering. Colourpop Supershocked Shadows in Sequin and Game Face.
LIQUID LINER– Stila Stay All Day in Intense Black. I like this one better than Kat Von D’s!
BRIGHTENING– NYX Faux Whites Eye Brightener in Linen. Best one on the market. It doesn’t budge for hours!! 😍 NYX Eyeshadow base in Pearl, also for inner eye highlight.
MASCARA– I have two faves currently: It Cosmetics Superhero mascara and Benefit Roller Lash. I use both everyday. Roller Lash is better for lower lashes. I also love Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara.
OTHER ESSENTIALS: Tweezerman slanted tweezers, Urban Decay eyeshadow primer, Sephora lash curler, NYX lipliner pencils.
♡ LIP STUFF!
KVD Lovecraft is probably my #1 most worn lipstick, followed closely by Ruby Woo.
Lipgloss: Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Dolly (I’m wearing this 99% of the time), or Lancome Juicy Tubes cause I think it’s 2004.
Lip cream: Sephora Matte Lip Creams are the greatest value and product ever ($14!). Get Marvelous Mauve if you don’t have one. Stila Matte Lip cream in Beso is a stay-all-day red.
Lip Balm: I love the untinted Fresh Sugar balms, since they work better than anything else and have SPF. I swear they’re worth that $$$….! I also like Lush lip scrub to soften lips.
♡ NAIL POLISH!
Base Coat: I use OPI Nail Envy because it’s also a strengthener, but otherwise I haven’t found a base coat I like!
Fall Colors: Any brown, taupe, or beige. Orly Cotton Candy. OPI’s Suzi Loves The Cowboys!
Pedicure Picks: China Glaze’s You Drive Me Coconuts and Essie’s Hip-Anema (those nice tiny Essie brushes are great for pedicures!).
Polish Remover: Beauty Secrets Acetone is what I swear by (the pink one, not the blue- the 100% pure acetone is harder to work with)
Cuticle Remover: Blue Cross from Sally’s.
Nail Oil: Jojoba oil, California Mango Magic from Sally’s.
♡ SKIN CARE!
Makeup Remover: Garnier Micellar Water (so gentle and works soooo well!!)
Toner: Witch Hazel! Especially the rose petal one by Thayers.
Sunblock: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence is my #1 all time!
Face Cream: Cerave moisturizing cream in the tub.
Oils: Vitamin C Serum from Amara Organics.
♡ HAIR STUFF!
Hair Brush: The WET HAIR BRUSH!!!! I own three of them, including a travel size one for the car. I won’t brush my hair with anything else. GET ONE!
Dry Shampoo: Batiste dry shampoo is my fave, and I’ve tried at least 10 different kinds.
