I’m back from my *unintentional* blogging break! I have been flat out with full-time work and study, but I’m taking a study break until next year now so I have more time for the things I love! Yes that includes blogging, so stay tuned for more posts from me! ❤ Also I am very active over on instagram, so if you don’t already, make sure you follow me over there!
Today’s post is a collab with one of my gorgeous blogging friends Sarah from Bows and Pleats. We thought it would be fun to both do the Ride Or Die Makeup Tag, and share with you all what our favourite, ride or die, products are! Stay tuned until the end of the post for a link to Sarah’s post! I can’t wait to read what all her favourites are because I know I will love them too.
If you aren’t familiar with the tag, you basically just pick your absolute ride or die favourite products from each category! Now let’s get into the tag! Prepare to read ride or die a lot.
My ride or die primer is the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. This baby is oil free and is perfect for normal to oily skin. It keeps me matte the longest, and I feel like it is one of the only products that can keep my face on in summer!
Covergirl 3-in-1 is one of my all time favourite foundations. It provides medium buildable coverage, doesn’t make me too shiny, and looks like skin. And it’s easy on the wallet!
Technically I’m not cheating here because I’m breaking this up into my ride or die corrector and concealer. I absolutely cannot live without my corrector to cover my dark under eyes on the daily so I had to include it! Also they are to be used in conjunction, so they go hand in hand anyway 😉
Bobbi Brown corrector. I use the shade light bisque, which is pink toned, perfect for covering dark under eye circles before topping with concealer! To give you an idea of how much I love this corrector, I have already used up about 4, and I have 3 backups… you need it. now.
For concealer, my ride or die is the Tarte Maracuja creaseless concealer. It’s super full coverage, and actually goes light enough for me! A little goes a long way too.
The RCMA No Color Powder. Translucent and weightless, this is the best of the best. It’s also perfect for baking!
UNDER EYE SETTING POWDER
Laura Mercier Translucent loose setting powder. If there is one powder worth $$ it’s this one. It’s just so perfect to set the under eyes, and anywhere else for that matter. It doesn’t leave the under eyes cakey or crepe-y, and just sets and mattifies.
One filler and one tamer is fine right… right?! To fill in my brows my ride or die is Benefit Brow Zings. The powder leaves your brows looking so natural, yet defined. I have only had this for about a month, but I never want to part with it. Ever!
To set my brows in place I can’t go past Benefit Gimme Brow! I have used this for years, and I will continue to use it for years. It shapes my brow hairs into the exact place I want with it’s tiny brush, and it has teeny fibres to make your brows look more voluminous.
Are you guys really that surprised that I picked Benefit Roller Lash?! This is the most lengthening and curling mascara I have ever tried. Love, love, love!
Ever since I got Benefit Rockateur blush I basically haven’t put it down. I use it every week without fail! It is the perfect natural pink shade that goes with any look.
Personally because I’m pale as a ghost I never bronze. But oh girl, you know I contour!
Makeup Geek Break Up is my perfect, ride or die contour shade. It’s a super light cool toned brown which is perfect for contouring on us pale makeup lovers!
So fitting for the creator of this tag. My ride or die highlighter is Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. Jaclyn is my favourite youtuber, and is a big inspiration to me. Even though I initially thought this would be way too dark on me, I had to pick it up because I’m such a huge fan. And the second I tried it I fell in love. The most intense and gorgeous highlighter ever. And even us super pale people can not only get away with it, but slay it!
Mac Creme Cup is my life. It’s my perfect pinky nude! Enough said.
Now I don’t want to say that queen Jeffree has the best formula on the market… but in my opinion he does. I have tried SO many different brands of liquid lipsticks. ABH, Stila, DOSE of Colors (Probably my second fave), Rimmel, Too Faced… and Jeffree’s formula comes out on top. It’s creamy, not mega drying, and will not budge. Basically every other liquid lippy will transfer a tiny bit at least, but not Jeffree’s! Now I just need him to create the perfect pinky nude for me!
I’m not the biggest fan of lip gloss. It’s fun to add a bit of gloss in the warmer months, but definitely in the cooler months I favour matte lips. Seeing as I don’t wear gloss much, I don’t really have a ride or die. But I do really like the MAC and NYX butter gloss formulas.
Is it cheating for me to choose my custom Z palette with Makeup Geek shadows?! Makeup Geek eyeshadows are hands down my favourite in terms of quality and shade range. They are soft, buttery, and super pigmented. Obsessed. I have to stop myself from using this everyday.
Just in case I wasn’t allowed to choose a custom palette, my favourite ready made palette is…
The LORAC Pro palette! With one full row of mattes and one of shimmers, and a variety of light to dark with transition shades, a cream and a black, this is such a versatile palette. And it has great pigmentation.
I don’t wear lashes too often. I’m going to try and wear them more!
My ride or die lash brand is Model Rock. They are incredible quality, have a wide range of styles to choose from, and aren’t expensive either. They also have a nice thin band, and don’t make my eyes feel tired when I wear them. That’s a thing with lashes right?
If I had to pick a favourite style it would probably be the DW Style 3. In general though I always go for the demi wispy styles of lashes! I love the fluttery look.
Skindinavia takes the cake. And I’m sure it could set the cake for hours too. I don’t see much difference between the different variations of the Skindinavia range. I have tried the original, oil control and bridal and I pretty much rate them all equally. That being said, I do think I favour the bridal slightly more as I feel like it works a bit better. But that may just be all in my head?!
Prada Candy eau de parfum. Prada Candy is my ride or die fragrance. It’s sweet, with vanilla notes (my favourite!), but isn’t too young. I love it!
That’s it for the tag! I loved sharing my ride or die makeup products with you all and I hope you enjoyed reading it!
