Hi, everyone! Bailey here. This week I'm sharing my absolute favorite makeup + skincare products.

Narrowing it down to these 5 products was kind of rough (I have a Sephora problem), but I finally did it!

I have very dry, but acne-prone skin, which is a tough combination; I need hydration without the heavy greasiness that might cause breakouts. I've finally found the perfect mix of skincare + makeup products that are moisturizing and effective!

Keep reading to see which products give me the dewy glow and perfect contour we're all striving for! Please note that we may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page at no extra cost to you, to help fund snack reviews and other fun things!



Age: 24

Skin: Dry, dehydrated + acne-prone

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask - $30

I apply this mask over my moisturizer before bed and wake up with super soft, smooth, glowing skin. The gel texture sinks in quickly, so there’s no goopy product on your pillow. My dry winter skin drinks this up almost instantly. I have acne-prone skin, so it's important to have a product that doesn't clog my pores, but is very nourishing at the same time. This is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner, and I can definitely understand why!

Ardell False Lashes Wispies - $5

I wear false lashes like it’s my job. I’ve tried more than 25 different kinds, and I can confidently say these are the best. They're long and full, but still (in my opinion) look natural. The thin band makes them very flexible and easy to shape to my eye. Also, I clean them and wear them multiple times which makes them cheaper in the long run.

Becca First Light Primer - $38

Honestly, I can't say enough great things about this primer. It creates a hydrated, smooth canvas that helps my makeup apply seamlessly. The slight violet color brightens and evens my skin tone, but goes on very sheer (don't be worried about putting something purple on your face). This primer gives the skin a youthful glow while still feeling light!

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Duo Highlighter - $34

This comes with two highlighters in one package, which is super convenient for traveling. It’s a buttery, soft powder highlight that’s able to be built up from a soft glow to an insane shine. I love the shades lightning dust/fire crystal (both are a pink pearlescent), but honestly you can’t go wrong with any of them.

Fenty Beauty Match Stix - $25

Rihanna killed the beauty game this year (no surprise). These match stix can be used for a variety of different things, but I love to use the shade Amber as a cool toned contour. This cream stick is very easy to blend and comes in so many shades. Contouring is made easy with this product, just draw a line & blend it out. Highly recommend.


Stay tuned for more beauty must-haves!
