The Jaclyn Hill Ride Or Die Tag

Everyone and their mothers in the beauty world would have known of this already.  Jaclyn Hill all time amazing Youtuber, co-creator of ever amazing super popular ‘Champagne Pop‘ by Becca cosmetics, released this tag back in August and I’ve been meaning to break down my own Ride or Die items.  Sometimes you need to step back and see the bigger picture of how much layers and layers of makeup we put on every morning!! lol yikes.
This tag made me break down why I love the products I cannot live without.  And why the heck do I wear all this makeup??? Although some staple items, like lashes and heavy foundation…I don’t wear everyday, so it’s not too drastic, still layers(!!).
Without further a due, here is my answers to “The Ride or Die Tag


Cream: Benefit porefessional
Spray: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water

Nars Creamy Concealer
I can’t go back to MAC after this concealer. It is so easy to blend(with my beauty blender) and sets perfectly under my eyes.

Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick 400
Nars Audacious Lipstick in LIV
This is the perfect traditional dark lip for the winter season

Kat Von D Lolita
Perfect everyday lipstick, iconic.
Too Faced Melted Matte Naughty by Nature
I use this everyday, it is an alternative for the dark purple lip. This is a beautiful dark chocolate lip.

Liquid: L’oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense
This is amazing because of the felt tip and doesn’t budge when I curl my lashes after I apply my liquid eyeliner. It is even better because it is a drug store product and very affordable.
Pencil: Makeup Forever Artist Liner
I’ve tried quite a few pencil liners and destroyed a lot of contact lenses! I wear contacts everyday so I needed to find something that was compatible for my lenses. I found that most rubbed up on my lenses and either scratched them or kept colouring it, therefore obstructing my view. I’ve bought this liner for a few years now and I can’t imagine converting to a different one, but I have noticed that it wasn’t on the Sephora website, so if anyone knows one perfect for contact lenses, please let me know! SOS.

Ardell Demi Wispies

Lorac Pro Palette
I die for matte shadows. The first top row has all mattes, perfect for my everyday wear. The bottom row is all shimmer/sheen, which I’m not too fond of, but when I want a little extra, I have the bottom rows. I find that most palettes released lately is not coming out with colours that attract me to bite for a new palette, companies constantly reach for the shimmer/sheen colours, over mattes. Let me know if there are any matte palettes I need to check out!

Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray
Mac Fix+

Summer: Chanel Chance
Winter: Prada Candy
Year Round: Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb
