My 2023 FAVORITE makeup PRODUCTs

I’ve been a beauty product junkie wayyyyy longer than a professional makeup artist so choosing favorites was definitely not an easy feat! But I thought it’d be fun to see a snapshot of my 2023 makeup faves in each category. I chose winners based off of how often I used them this past year. Keep in mind though, these are the favorites in my personal makeup bag, not my professional kit. If you want to see a 2023 round up of my favorite professional kit products, let me know!

And before you start shopping...LISTEN UP. What I'm about to say is totally not sponsored. If you're a current Rakuten user disregard the next few sentences but if not, listen up to save $$$! I know it sounds too good to be true but I’ve been using them for 7+ years and I can assure you it’s incredible. You create an account and every time you need to purchase something online (ie makeup!!), you search for the retailer, click on the cash back amount and it’ll take you to that retailer’s site. You make your purchase as you normally would and then each quarter, Rakuten sends you a check for the cash back you’ve accrued. It’s legit WILD and feels borderline like stealing LOL.
