Straight From The Bag

I sat down with my younger sister, Alissa Banks, as she took me on a tour through her makeup bags to discuss her top 15 favorite products she uses daily when she “beats” her face. Here’s what she has to say…

  1. Tarte “Rainforest of the Sea” Aquacealer concealer: “I really like it because it’s a really light concealer, but has a lot of coverage. It feels like I’m not wearing makeup but it has a lot of coverage.” BUY IT HERE–
  2. Tarte “Amazonian Clay” Exposed Highlight: “It’s got a nice glow to it, but it’s still subtle at the same time. I feel like my highlight is poppin’.” BUY IT HERE–
  3. Bare Minerals “Lash Domination” Volumizing Mascara: “It makes my lashes long, but not clumpy at all It separates my lashes really well.” BUY IT HERE–
  4. Original Beauty Blender: “The foundation looks really smooth on my face and my pores don’t stick out as much. It blends everything together on my face.” BUY IT HERE–
  5. L’Oreal Paris “Infallible Pro-Matte” Foundation: “The foundation is really blendable and applies smoothly. The finish is nice, and it is a light foundation with good coverage.” BUY IT HERE–
  6. Maybelline “Instant Age Rewind” Concealer: “It’s super easy to use because the applicator is right on there. Again, it’s really light but has a decent coverage.” BUY IT HERE–
  7. Coty “Airspun” Loose Face Translucent Powder: “The powder sets my foundation really nicely and doesn’t crease. It also stays matte and doesn’t look cakey.” BUY IT HERE–
  8. Tarte “Rainforest of the Sea” Marine Boosting Mist: “I really like it because it’s refreshing. I use it both as a primer and on top of my makeup. It also keeps my makeup on all day. I didn’t think it worked. I thought it was kind of a scam, then I bought it, and it worked.” BUY IT HERE–
  9. Maybelline “Fit Me” Blush (specifically shade 310 Deep Wine): “The blush compliments my face and it is a nice fall color.” BUY IT HERE–
  10. Maybelline “Master Prime” Primer: “The primer fixes the imperfections of my face before I put my foundation on. It blurs my pores. It doesn’t clog them, either.” BUY IT HERE–
  11. NYX “Nude Matte Eyeshadow” (specifically the shade NSM16 Dance the Tides): “It is a nice color that you can do anything with and it goes with anything because it is a natural color. I like to blend it in my crease for a little definition, to make my eyes pop a little bit. It has good pigment.” BUY IT HERE–
  12. Urban Decay “Midnight Cowboy” Eyeshadow: “It has really good pigment, and is nice and shimmery to spice up a look.” BUY IT HERE–
  13. Any Bare Mineral Loose Powder Eyeshadows: “They’re all extremely pigmented and don’t crease. They are all extremely blendable.” BUY IT HERE–
  14. TooFaced “Lip Injection Extreme” Turbo Pumping Lipgloss: “It plumps my lips and makes them look good like I got lip injections, but I don’t [have them.]” BUY IT HERE-
  15. L’Oreal “Collection Exclusive: JLO” Lipstick (specifically shade 370 Jennifer’s Nude): “It’s very creamy, and applies very smooth.” BUY IT HERE–
