If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I have been seeing a bunch of TikToks recently about if you suddenly lost ALL of your makeup and could only get one product from each category what would you get. I am totally curious to see what everyoneโ€™s picks would be!

@lmaster  That Tarte primer is the best!!!

@danielledanielle  It would definitely take awhile for the tears to stop. I keep hearing great things about that Dior foundation. I need to swatch it the next time Iโ€™m in store.

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Primer: It would have to be an eyeshadow primer, but I don't have a favorite at the moment


Foundation: I have very different needs depending on the day (thanks rosacea), so I have to cheat. For an everyday light coverage look, Omiana loose powder foundation. For special events/more coverage, Kosas Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation SPF25 with Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide 


Concealer: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer 


Powder: Kosas Cloud Set Baked Setting & Smoothing Talc-Free Vegan Powder Breezy 


Highlighter: I'm still holding on to my old Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe palette, so I have no idea what I'd buy to replace it! If I ever lose it, I'm coming back to this thread for suggestions ๐Ÿ˜†


Eyeshadow: Natasha Denona Biba


Eyeliner: LH Cosmetics Crayon in Griege Core. It's cool enough to double as an eyebrow pencil in a pinch. 


Mascara: ILIA Mini Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara After Midnight 


Brow: Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel with Lamination Effect .23 / 7ml 


Blush: Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Magic Hour 


Lipstick: I'm drawing a total blank as to my favorite lipsticks from the past. My current collection is mostly MERIT Signature Lip Lightweight Satin Lipstick so let's go with that.


Lip liner: MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil Brow, Eye & Lip Liner 508 Total Taupe 


Lip gloss: Trading in a gloss for Glossier Balm Dotcom...though with this reformulation nonsense, who knows if that will hold true!

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@tastelikewater  The Ilia mascara is hard to beat!

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I have that SC brow pencil on my spring sale list @JoSometimes !

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@JoSometimes Love MAC Diva

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Primer: it'd definitely be an eyeshadow primer. I'm currently hunting for a new one since Smashbox has reformulated their Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer. ๐Ÿ˜ž (I've tried the new version and I'm unimpressed.) So, this category's TBD. 


Foundation: TBD. On the few occasions I use foundation, it's a powder used mostly to mask white/grey cast left by certain sunscreens. My favorite powder foundation's now discontinued. Eh, I guess a tinted Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder kinda sorta fits this category: I use it to control oil and help mask surface redness on and around my nose. 


Concealer: gonna cheat and split this into 2 categories. 



Powder: more cheating.



Eyeshadow: even when narrowing this down to just shadows/palettes that are still available for purchase, it's a hard choice. I'd probably pick Viseart Eyeshadow Palette 08 Editorial Brights since that's the all-mattes palette I still reach for most often, plus it pairs wonderfully with just about any other palette and single shadow. No one's mattes are better than Viseart's. 


Eyeliner: LH Cosmetics Crayon, though I can't narrow this down to one shade... I'd cheat here and buy a bundle of 5 shades (buy 4, get 1 free). ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Mascara: #Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara Black Vinyl Vol 2 


Brow: Kimiko Super Fine Eyebrow Pencil Automatique 


Blush: NARS Talc-Free Powder Blush , probably shade Libertรฉ or Aroused, or maybe Dolce Vita 


Bronzer: n/a 


Contour: n/a 


Lipstick: nope, I can't pick just one product for my favorite makeup category. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Not happenin'. I will forego buying any other makeup on this list (except brow pencil; gotta have that) in order to buy several lipsticks. I have too many faves. 


Lipliner: this one's a tossup between a PAT McGRATH LABS Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil (best tamer of bleeding/feathering lipstick and longest wearing) or Mented Lip Liner shade M5 (a good performer in a purplish brown shade that works well with my natural lip color and many lipstick shades). I also recently fell in love with SEPHORA COLLECTION Retractable Rouge Gel Lip Liner as an option less expensive than Pat's liner. 


Lipgloss: Lancรดme L'Absolu Lacquer Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick . I've yet to find a lip gloss formula that comes close to this one's opacity, staying power, lip comfort, and high shine. 


Highlighter (not on original list): can't pick my fave PMG Lunar Nude because it's no longer available to purchase, so... hmm... Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder is a good "melts seamlessly into my skin" second choice. 

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@WinglessOne It is such a shame when our favorites get discontinued or reformulated. I hope you can find new favorite soon! I totally forgot about highlighter so I had to edit the post.

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Primer- Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer 

Foundation- SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Glowing Skin Foundation #37 (which for some reason is only available at Kohls now ) 

Concealer- NARS Radiant Creamy Liquid Color Corrector Medium 

Powder- Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder 

Eyeshadow- Natasha Denona Mini Retro Eyeshadow Palette 

Eyeliner- I donโ€™t wear eyeliner 

Mascara- Yves Saint Laurent Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara 


Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@Kim888  I thought that SC foundation had been discontinued, Iโ€™m glad to know I can still get it at kohls!

Re: If you lost all your makeup ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@faeriegirl @Yeah Iโ€™m sad Sephora doesnโ€™t carry it directly anymore - itโ€™s such an easy one to wear and not super expensive for light coverage !
