My Faves: Everyday Eye Products

Happy Saturday! I have enjoyed my day so far. Slept in, organized my closet and now going to share a little about my fave everyday eye products! These are the products I reach for on most days when doing my eye makeup, just my usual go to's on a normal day to day basis. So let's get started!

I always put a shadow base or primer on before I start my eye makeup. This helps to make the shadow stay, the colors pop and keep your look from creasing. These are the 5 I reach for normally. I pick one depending on my colors and look I'm going for that day. The Maybelline color tattoo line is really a great product to use, and an added bonus that it is a drugstore product and not expensive. I would say the MAC Paint Pots and the Color Tattoo line are very comparable. Really just depends on the look you're trying to achieve.

1-MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly" (Matte), MAC Cosmetics $18.50
2-Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Inked in Pink" (Shimmer), Drugstore about $7
3-Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Barely Beige" (Shimmer), Drugstore about $7
4-Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Bad to the Bronze" (Shimmer), Drugstore about $7
5-Maybelline Color Tattoo in "Tough as Taupe" (Matte), Drugstore about $7

I recently picked up a sample of this stuff at Sephora to try. I'm still working on my sample but I plan on purchasing it after I am out. It definitely makes your shadow stay put all day!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Sephora or Ulta $20

Eye Shadows

1-Urban Decay Naked2 Palette, Sephora or Ulta $50
This palette is a splurge... but Urban Decay are great shadows, it packs a great selection, great color payoff, and a great travel companion to have!
2-Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, Sephora or Ulta $27
I was not sure when I first started seeing this palette, but I am so glad I bought it. The colors create the most beautiful eye, really my favorite! I love matte shadows and these are all matte except for 1 and it is a perfect highlight for your brow bone and inner eye area.
3-Wet N' Wild Color Icon in "Walking on Eggshells, Drugstore $2.99
These are cheap and great! Most people look right past Wet N' Wild because well they are so cheap. But a lot of their eye, cheek and lip products are great quality! The cost is cheap, but the product is not! This is my "in a hurry" go to shadow pick because I get a complete eye with these 3 colors quickly. You can see they are marked for your eyelid, crease and brow bone.
4-MAC Sable and Satin Taupe, MAC Cosmetics $15
These have always and will always be my 2 favorite MAC shades, I just love them. They are beautiful brown shades to own!


These are just my favorite shadow and crease brushes that I use daily. There are 3 crease brushes and 2 shadow brushes.
1-Sephora All Over Shadow Brush
2-Sigma Eye Shading E55, Sigma Beauty $10
3-Sigma Tapered Blending E40, Sigma Beauty $12
4-Coastal Scents Pro Blending Full 250, Coastal Scents $4.95
5-Sonia Kashuk Blender, Target (I can't find it online, sorry!)


I have always been a L'Oreal Mascara fan. Throughout the years, my faves have always been L'Oreal! Great quality, inexpensive, and perform great!
1-L'Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara, Drugstore about $7
I can't say enough good things about this, 1 coat and you are good to go. Love this lengthening formula.
2-L'Oreal Voluminous Full Definition, Drugstore about $6
This one is more thickening than lengthening, so just depends on your preference.
3-Benefit They're Real, Sephora or Ulta $23
This is a sample size I received. I am still trying it out but so far loving it!

Eye Liners

1-Jordana FabuLiner Liquid Eye Liner, Walgreen's $1.99
This stuff is amazing. Glides on perfectly and stays on all day!
2-Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Liner, Drugstore about $6
This stuff is great too, I honestly can't say which one I like best. I just rotate them both right now.

1-MAC Eye Kohl in "Teddy", MAC Cosmetics $16
This is a beautiful bronze brown that I have loved for years. I've never found any color like it!
2-MAC Eye Kohl in "Smolder", MAC Cosmetics $16
A great black liner, I've used this one for years too.

Well I hope you've enjoyed my favorite everyday eye makeup!
I am off to get ready now, I have a date tonight with my hubby. We came up with a plan for each one of us to 100% plan a date night once a month, no help or suggestions from the other. This month I'm on, so tonight I'm taking him to dinner and to see the new Superman movie, he'll be excited for the movie for sure!

Thanks for reading,


  1. In my opinion, the eyes make the face. I love making up my eyes and I especially love the smoldery, hot look. That being said, I am kind of in a rut. I have thought about trying my hand at liquid liner but I am kind of afraid to leave my smudgy, rock n' roll first love: the pencil. Do you think the liquid liner has a tendency to look a little too neat, or do I just lack the finesse it takes to accurately apply it?

    Make Me Up, Mia!!

    1. I totally agree, the eye is everything! I love liquid liner, but I also love the smudged out look of a pencil and even a gel lately. I do agree, a liquid liner is more of a neat finish, so I use it mostly when I want a perfect, neat look. I usually always wing it out though, which gives it a little more of a flare. Play around with it and take your time, it took me some time to really learn how to apply it best for me and figure out what I liked best. Thanks :)

  2. Oh I used to LOVE They're Real mascara until I developed an allergy to it - how awful is that?? I'm obsessed with Dior's New Look in Black for my mascara these days... expensive habit but it is amazing :)

    1. That really stinks, bummer! I'm liking it so far. Ooohh I just may have to try that mascara next, I hear good things about Dior mascara. Thanks! A few expensive habits never hurt a girl right ;)
