If My ENTIRE Makeup Collection Disappeared…

LeahERaven.com | If My Entire Makeup Collection Disappeared, These Are The First 10 Makeup Items I'd Repurchase

Hey all and welcome!  Happy Friday!  Today I thought we would do a fun little YouTube inspired post.  This idea originally came from Emily Noel and Jessica on YouTube, which they got the idea from a subscriber (how cool right?).  Emily’s video I will link here and Jessica’s video I will link here.  So, the title leaves out the second part of this post.  If my entire makeup collection disappeared, what 10 makeup items would I repurchase first.  Isn’t that a cool idea?  It was so different and even though the videos were posted a while ago, I thought this would be a fun post idea!  I’d really love to see more people do this video idea as a post, so if you have done it or plan to do it, leave your link in the comment section so I can check it out!  But, if you are curious as to what my 10 makeup items would be, just keep on reading!  Just want to quickly throw this out there, I plan to go in order of which I would apply my makeup, this is not including any tools, and everything can be purchased from one location.  Because in my mind, if my entire collection disappeared and I needed things to put together a look, I don’t want to have to be running around finding everything.  I’d want a one-stop shop, you know what I mean?  Anyway, onto the makeup!

Now, if you have been reading my blog for a bit, you know how much I love this foundation.  This foundation works so beautifully on my skin, I don’t even need a primer.  It looks so natural and has all day staying power on my skin.  This isn’t even a question on purchasing!

Next up would be the Wet N Wild Photofocus Concealer.  It is hands down my favorite concealer that I have tried, it is inexpensive, and you get a great bang for your buck.  I not only use it as a concealer for under my eyes and any spots I need to conceal, but it also works great as an eye primer.

Yet another product that is Holy Grail status for me, so you know I am not skipping out on this one.  It sets my makeup beautifully and keeps me radiant without looking greasy.  It also works incredibly under the eyes to set my concealer.

A great multitasking product for me.  I use this as a contour as well as an eyeshadow.  It is a great tone for my skin tone and I love throwing this into the crease for a quick swipe of color on my eyes.

Another type of multitasking product.  If I focus more of my brush on top, I can use as a wonderful, bright highlight, I can use different shades as a pop on my eyes for shadow, and if I focus more at the bottom, I can obtain a very glowy bronze, or if I focus on the pinks, a glowy blush.  I love single products that can multitask.

I love the Anastasia Brow Wiz, I have gone through so many.  It has never failed me or let me down.  I’m also very particular when it comes to my brows, so I would definitely want to pick up something tried and true!

Because of working in such a humid environment, I need a brow gel to make sure my brows don’t melt off or go anywhere.  This NYX one hasn’t let me down and for $5.99 I feel it is such a great buy!  I’ve had my current one for a while now and it has yet to dry up on me.

 

LeahERaven.com | Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara $4.99 US

Because I work with dogs for a living, I need a mascara that is waterproof but still makes my lashes look great.  This mascara does that for me and it is so inexpensive!  It gives me volume, length, and holds my curl.  Great, great product.

Oh, look at that, another holy grail product.  I can wear this lip shade every day and not get sick of it.  For me, this is my everyday nude that I can dress up and dress down and it looks good on me no matter what.

Setting spray, for my line of work anyway, is a must.  This Milani one is great, does the job and does it well.  It sets and blends all the powders together, but doesn’t make me look matte or like the life has been sucked out of my face.

 

So that does it for the 10 makeup items I’d repurchase if my entire collection disappeared.  If you have done this idea, drop your link in the comments so I can check it out!  If you haven’t done a post, I’d love to know what 10 items you’d repurchase!  Are there any items that I would pick up that you also would pick up?  Let me know in the comments!  Well, I think I’ve rambled on enough for one evening.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend and until next time!
