This is one of my favorite cream products that I have in my kit. The cream bronzer is so smooth and blends effortlessly, and the highlighter has the most beautiful dewy gleam.

Natash Denona Bloom Palette
I really like Natasha Denona's products Her makeup line truly is great, my only issue is her products aren't the most kit-friendly. I find a lot of her powder products to be very delicate, even in the security of the palette. Just a heads up to anyone interested that they do not travel well. With that being said this is one of the two items I keep in my kit. That packaging is extremely protective and sturdy. This blush-highlight palette contains a cream blush, cream highlight, and two powder highlighters. This palette really packs a punch with its high-quality pigmentation. You will have the most beautiful rose gold glow when using this palette.
Purchase this product at the Natasha Denona store or on their website.
Natasha Denona Tan Palette
This is the second and only other Natasha Denona product in my kit. This bronze palette will warm up your skin for the ideal sunkissed look. It contains a bronzer powder, two powder highlights, and a cream highlighter.

Glossier Cloud Paint
It is no secret that I love Glossier. If you keep up with my blog posts it's something I mention here and there. Cloud paint is the go-to liquid blush that I use on myself and my clients. It has great color payoff and is buildable. You can even use this product on the eyes and lips for a monochromatic look. A must-have in my opinion.
Purchase this product on the Glossier.com.
Mac Paint Stick Palette
This colorful cream palette is great to keep in your kit for those moments when a pop of color is required. The formula is extremely easy to work with and the color options are endless. You can even make this palette more condense by transferring the creams into a smaller empty palette.

I discovered this product while I was in Target shopping for things I don't need. I justify the purchase because this is now my favorite eyeliner pencil. Creamy, smooth, highly pigmented, easily blendable, and when it's set it's not moving. An amazing $8 eyeliner you cannot beat it.

Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade
This brow pomade is great for bold brow looks or to create small hair strokes to fill in the brow. I definitely gravitate towards my powder and pencils more, but I think it is nice to have a creamy brow product on hand.

Benefit cosmetics is another company who has been on top of their brow game for a long time. These brow pencils are rich in color and come in a expansive variety of shades and undertones. You can easily create hair like strokes for a natural brow or go bold with these pencils.
This was a huge makeup trend back in 2019/2020 I wanna say. It may or may not be overpriced for what it is, regardless I bought it anyway. This brow soap is most famously used to create the fluffy brown look. It does indeed work and not mad about the purchase at all.
Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara
I am not too picky when it comes to mascara. You always want a quality formula, but I feel as though you buy most mascaras for the wand. Maybelline has always been a drugstore favorite and has never let me down. I always keep black, black/brown, and water proof mascaras on hand.
MAC Paint Pot
Paint Pot's are my go to for priming the eyes for shadow. They work great as bases or to wear on their own. They provide nice coverage on the eyelid and you can't go wrong with these. My most used shades are soft ochre and painterly.
