Sarah Loves Makeup blogger and—in our opinion—bonafide beauty expert, Sarah Frank, offers us an exclusive peek inside her beauty bag. Don’t miss her must-have products below!
Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in Terra ($68): This is my first Tom Ford bronzer, and I am obsessed. The product is so finely milled and blends with my skintone seamlessly. I also love how this particular shade is shimmer-less, so it works really well as a contour or to bronze up the skin.
Glossier Stretch Concealer ($18): My under-eye area tends to get really dry. Enter: This creamy, super-hydrating (yet not greasy) concealer. It provides a light-to-medium coverage, but is definitely buildable.
Le Metier de Beaute Dualistic Eye Pencil in Tamarack ($36): A perfect golden bronze pencil for applying to the waterline. Also, being that the pencil is really easy to work with, it makes a great base for eye shadow. I roughly draw onto my lids, and then blend with a MAC 217 brush.
Dior Addict Lip Maximizer ($33): A great plumping, hydrating gloss that I can apply before or after lipstick—or on its own!
Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara ($8.99): This is an incredible lengthening, volumizing mascara that holds a curl, and doesn’t make my lashes clump up.
MAC Plushglass in Goodness Gracious ($21): A perfect sheer muted peachy-pink plumping gloss that is super pretty on its own for an everyday look, and goes really well over basically any lipstick. I really love it over Only You, which I mention below.
Le Metier de Beaute Crème Fresh Tint for Lips and Cheeks in Poppy ($28): Hands-down my favorite cream blush formula. It melts onto skin, and adds such a gorgeous lit-from-within pink glow.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk ($22): The best pinky-nude lip liner on the market that enhances the lips, while looking natural. Also, it acts as a great base for lipstick to achieve a really long-lasting lip look.
Glossier Boy Brow ($16): A brow pomade that fills in gaps, keeps hairs in place and looks much more natural than any other brow product I’ve used.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick ($20): I think this gorgeous medium pink-mauve shade is my favorite lipstick color of all time—it is seriously stunning. And, the formula lasts for hours, through drinks and meals.
Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme ($45): I’ve been loving a really natural foundation look, and this BB cream is my current go-to. It evens out skintone, offers really nice coverage for spots and redness (if I’m breaking out, I’ll just go back in and spot-conceal) and has great lasting power.
Burberry Eye Colour Cream in Gold Copper ($30): A really pretty neutral gold-bronze shadow that is just perfect for everyday wear. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received while wearing this.
Maybelline Gel Liner ($9.99): Such a great alternative to high-end gel eyeliners. I use the black shade, and it glides onto my upper lash line without pulling or tugging, and lasts all day without smudging.
Nars Lip Gloss in Chelsea Girls ($26): I used to have this color in the lacquer pot-form, and I think I like the gloss version even better. It’s a perfect everyday peachy nude that has semi-opaque coverage.
MAC x Ellie Goulding Lipstick in Only You ($18): This is the most beautiful dusty coral shade. The lipstick formula is also really creamy and feels so comfortable to wear.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer ($27): This concealer has the best coverage ever. It totally covers my under-eye circles, even after the most sleepless of nights. It also does an amazing job of spot-concealing pimples.
Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘n’ Kohl Eyeliner in Barbarella Brown ($27): I love using this liner during the day as an alternative to a black kohl or gel. The formula is really great—creamy, yet once you apply it, it stays put and never smears.
Glossier Generation G in Cake ($18): I am obsessed with this sheer lip stain, that also acts as a lip balm. This shade is such a pretty peachy-nude—can you tell I love neutrals?
