MAC Face & Body CA $32

Benefit Hoola CA $36

Nars X Guy Bourdin blush palette CA 65

No 7 Pore refining serum - lightweight texture and reduces the appearance of pores (available at Shoppers Drugmart)

MAC Prep + Prime face protect - this keeps my face matte for the entire day, and also has SPF 50 (bonus!) (CA $37)

Loreal Miracle Blur - makes skin super smooth and ready for a flawless foundation application.  Also comes in Oil-Free version (CA $25) 

Maybelline FIT Me - an excellent drugstore foundation that provides light to medium coverage.  This gives a dewy finish to the skin.  Would've loved if it came with a pump for a mess free application.

Loreal Lumi - a luminous (as the name suggests) drugstore foundation that has a light to medium coverage.  Has a wide selection of colours/shades to accommodate all skin tones.

MAC Face & Body - best natural (light to medium coverage) foundation to give you that "looks like skin" finish; perfect for taking photos as it does not contain any SPF

Giorgio Maestro - my pick for a high end foundation that provides a medium to full coverage  without making your face look cake at all.  This applies very evenly on the skin and i  love the scent - it does not smell like makeup (you know what I mean yes?).  The packaging also feels luxurious.

Essence 16 hour concealer - inexpensive and stays on the skin for a long time (Not sure if this will really last for 16 hours, I haven't worn it for that long).  Only CON is that it only comes in light shades (nothing for someone with a medium to dark complexion)

Maybelline Eraser Dark circle - best salmon coloured eye concealer.  Texture is lightweight and does not cake up.  I love how it applies smoothly under the eyes. 

Bobbi Brown corrector - high end alternative to Maybelline dark circle eraser (if budget is not a concern); It has a very creamy consistency but I find that  have to moisturize really well so it won't crease on me.

Chanel Soleil tan de Chanel bronzer - good matte universal cream bronzer and I especially love the packaging.  Definitely a cult favourite

Bourjois bronzing primer - drugstore alternative to Chanel tan de soleil.  The texture is different as this has more of a mousse like consistency (Chanel is more solid) - little goes a long way

Benefit Hoola - another good high end matte bronzer.  this product lasts a looong time, so its worth the price (imo).  

Nars X Guy Bourdin blush palette - Limited Edition offering from Nars for the holidays.  They always offer some of the best blush palettes.  Best for when travelling as the colours will match any makeup look.  If you can still get your hands on this,  grab yourself one! (or two .. lol)  I believe this was $65

Benefit Rockateur - I'm not really too fond of the scent (it doesn't smell bad at all - Id rather that it was unscented) BUT gives the prettiest rosy pinky glow on your cheeks

Revlon cream blush - love the cream to powder finish.  only comes in 4 shades - 2 are perfect for summer/spring as they are super bright and the other 2 are more natural so its best to wear during fall season.  Provides a very natural flush on the face, it is easy to blend and stays on the cheeks the entire day.  

Hourglass ambient lighting powder palette - again, this is a must have (grab one if you still can)  for achieving that perfect glow.  it extends the wear of my makeup, and minimizes the look of pores.
