Favorite Everyday Make-up Products

First of all, Happy Halloween!

I am a huge make-up person. Ever since my sister-in-law came into my life & I worked at Ulta the summer after high school, I’ve been hooked.

I’m not a guru at all, but I just enjoy it and have been complimented on my skills, so I figured if anyone wanted so simple motivation or tips, that I’d be your make-up SupermANNA.

Like I said, I am no expert, I just dabble. Some days I don’t even wanna touch it. (tbh, I sometimes get lazy and throw some concealer and mascara on and call it a day. BUT when I decide not to be a potato, this is my routine!)

If you’ve never heard of Ipsy, thank goodness you’re reading this, and you’re welcome 😉


I wish I could be like an Ipsy spokesperson because I am a HUGE Ipsy advocate!

Ipsy is one of the best things that ever happened to my wallet, my time, & my face, hair, and skin.

  • Ipsy is $10 a month for easily over $40 of product
  • Comes in a cute lil travel bag that’s different every month.


All you have to do is:

  1. Go to Ipsy.com
  2. Take a personalized quiz & it sends you make-up, skincare, haircare, brushes, nail products, etc. all based on that quiz.
  3. Sign up
  4. Get your “glam bags” filled with 5 BOMB products
  5. At the end of the month, rate your products & they will send you stuff with the updated reviews.

I’ll mark everything I received from Ipsy with a star (*) & bold it so you get an idea of how much awesome stuff I got & use literally everyday (and this is just the make-up. No skincare or haircare.)

Let me know if you want me to send you a free Ipsy bag for a test run in the comments below!

I get to send 5 of them. Every Ipsy member does! So I’ll share the love since I think this is an amazing company!
