My Holy Grail Makeup Products

A holy grail item is something that consistently produces amazing results and never fails. Some items you recognize instantly that you’ll never be able to live without them. Other products take time. However, each holy grail item always gets the job done. Below are my holy grail makeup products.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow – $18

                I can’t remember what my eyebrows looked like before this product. The dipbrow has a creamy texture that makes it easy to create any shape I’d like. Also, for $18 you get a pot that lasts forever.


Morphe 35O Palette – $24

                This palette holds a special place in my heart because it was one of the first purchases I made when I first started investing in my makeup.  This palette is my favorite fall and everyday palette. There’s a brown for every mood and idea. Plus, for only 24 dollars you get 35 quality shades.


Maybelline Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black – $7.99  and Mascara Primer $7.99

                I love this mascara primer and mascara because it makes my lashes look thicker than they are. The primer helps my eyelashes stay at attention all day and the shade carbon black is the darkest shade in life. Also, my mascara never runs with this. The morning of my engagement I put this combination on. In my engagement pictures at the end of the day, you can see that I was hysterically crying, you don’t see my mascara running. Win.


Ardell Lash Wispies – $4.99

                These falsies are crazy easy to use. I struggle with applying lashes and often shy away from them if I know I don’t have time to be patient with myself. However, the struggle is always a little easier when I use my holy grail lashes from Ardell.


Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24H Longwear Fondation – $47

                When I first started wearing longwear foundation, not a lot of brands carried something in my shade. While this shade range does have some work to do, they had my shade and a few shades darker than me before it was popular. However, this is my holy grail foundation because it is perfect for long days. I know at the end of a long day it’s not going to have separated to the opposite sides of my face. Since it is medium to full coverage it builds beautifully and evenly.


Unfortunately, I’m still on the hunt for a holy grail concealer. If you have any suggestions let me know in the comments below!


Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder – $38

                I own both the translucent shade and the translucent medium deep shade of this powder. It sets my makeup without making me feel like I have powder all over my face. I use the translucent shade under my eyes and the medium deep shade all over.

Maybelline FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molton Gold – $9.99  

This highlighter is that girl. Periodt.  


MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo – $18

Picking one lipstick to claim as my holy grail is stressful, fyi. However, MAC’s Ruby Woo is deserving of this title. I love red lipstick. It makes me feel sophisticated and like I can change my life. It makes me sit up straighter and never doubt who tf I am. Ruby Woo is a beautiful matte, blue red that will change your life if you let it.
