Anna’s Everyday Five

A few weeks ago, Bustle published an article sharing readers’ list of five beauty products they use every day. It’s a part of the site’s Beauty IRL series, which I love. I wanted to share #MyEverydayFive as we launch our blog.

Before I start, let me just say that I’m a big believer of drugstore makeup. Almost all of my beauty stash consists of things you can get at Walgreens or the “high street” side at Ulta. Here’s five products I use every single day.

Micellar water. Currently, I’m using Simple’s micellar water, but my favorite is Sephora’s house brand cleansing water. I may include that in a post later, but Simple’s product is my favorite that I’ve tried at the drugstore. It’s gentle and effective, although it takes a few extra swipes to get eye makeup off.

Brow gel. Specifically, Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel. I don’t often fill my brows, which I know is a cardinal sin in the world of beauty so you’ll have to forgive me. The clear product holds my brows in place all day, leaving them looking clean and natural. I like the large spoolie because it makes the process quick and easy.

Bronzer. I am completely sold on Physician’s Formula’s Butter Bronzer. This stuff is gorgeous. It’s matte and gives me a natural and healthy glow and it smells like the beach. I’m not kidding. Scented makeup isn’t typically something I gravitate to but this bronzer really smells incredible.

Blush. Cult favorite Luminoso baked blush by Milani is a must-have. It’s a blush that looks great on any skin-tone. It’s a peachy pink that is light and natural. I wear it every day and love it.

Powder. To set my makeup lately, I’ve been using Soap and Glory’s One Heck of a Blot pressed powder. This stuff doesn’t get cakey, gives a natural-looking finish over foundation and keeps makeup in place. I usually touch up midday and then in the evening if I am going out somewhere, and it gets the job done.

What’s your everyday five?

    • Thanks for sharing Sara! I’ve been meaning to try the Mario Badescu rose water spray. Do you use it as a setting spray? I know it can have different purposes for different people. I also love the Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner. 🙂 Haven’t tried Perfectly Posh but NYX and Essence have great products!
