ONE: Dior Forever Matte Foundation
I've had a fun few years using luminous foundations but with this years strange Florida weather, I have found my skin getting oily (I am typically a dry skin type). I tried out this Dior Forever Matte foundation and it is the most stunning finish. It did not dry out my skin, it was long wearing, the scent is SO GOOD, and of course it is the fun luxury of it simply being Dior. The best part is, I can still create glow to my skin with good skincare underneath, luminous blush, highlighter, and other products. At a reasonable price point of a luxury brand ($55) this foundation is a MUST for anyone that is moving on from the luminous, dewy skin finish. Please note that this foundation is online only, but you can return to the store FOR FREE if the shade match is off.

TWO: Hourglass Waterproof Gel Eyeliner - Shade Solstice
This is my secret eyeliner. Every time I use this on a client they ask me for a link to the product. This specific shade called "Solstice" is a bronze metallic color. There is something about this shade that literally transforms an eye and makes every eye color pop. With waterline eyeliner coming back in style, this waterproof gel eyeliner stays put so nicely. I also enjoy smudging this on the top of my lid and under my bottom waterline as well and it blends out beautifully. I have been wearing this in my waterline and you all reply to my stories asking what it is, so this is another product coming with me into 2024.....

THREE: Tower 28 Gloss
The shade "Magic" is my go to, and the people who have also followed me by purchasing would completely agree. Do not like this gold glitter shade scare you. There is just something about this gloss that when you put this shade on your lips, you are instantly transformed into a Disney princess. It is a shimmer high shine finish and I use it on nearly every client. This is another one of my key products to create an epic lip combo. These Tower 28 glosses (all shades) are truly the only "non sticky" glosses I have ever worn and purchased in my entire life. These are luxurious and even my 8 and 10 year old nieces are HOOKED on these. They are now the cool girls in school with Aunt Allison's makeup recommendations.

FOUR: DIBS Glowtour Duo
I have used all of the DIBS sticks. Their original matte ones, and all of the new Glowtour duos. The new Glowtour duos are on another level and this is one of my go to makeup products. I love the convenience of having the blush and contour right in the same stick. My favorite shade is "Starlit" however, I truly love all of them. I use a luminous blush on every client (unless requested otherse) and my audience always asks what I am using. This is in the rotation of what I use on clients. Grab one of these and apply with their special brush (I personally only use this brush to apply it) to help simplify your makeup routine in 2024. So yes, you need both the brush and the duo stick!

FIVE: YSL Beauty Mascara
Coming from someone with short eyelashes, this mascara changed my life. I was gifted this mascara by YSL Beauty and truly was expecting this to be "just another mascara". When I put this on for the first time I about fell off my chair. I am not being dramatic, it is really that good. My favorite thing about this mascara is the volume you can create on your lashes. I would also love to mention that this mascara dries quickly once applied so you dont have to worry about "mascara dots" if you accidentally look the wrong direction. You can watch me apply this mascara and compare it to another mascara in my "signature glam" youtube video HERE. The proof is in the video, and the fact this is the only thing I am using on my lashes and my clients lashes!
