Such a win win if you want to avoid looking cakey but also are on the hunt for something with solid coverage. You’ll seriously forget you’re wearing makeup when you have this on.

Bye Bye Under Eye concealer – up to 370 points

This concealer is what dreams are made of as far as a dewy, glowy concealer that ACTUALLY conceals dark circles under your eyes. It stays as long as you want it to stay, and we feel like we look ALIVE when we put a tiny bit of this underneath our eyes. Currently 15% OFF as well!

CC+ Cream – up to 599 points

IT Cosmetics’ CC cream has long been one of Corrine’s very favorite foundations. It’s basically skincare with a side of amazing coverage! This stuff is straight up MAGIC. It’s SEVEN products in one!!! That means you can literally skip your moisturizer, primer, color corrector, anti-aging serum, dark spot concealer, full coverage foundation AND SPF 50 because this bottle whips it all up into one easy little formula. This is also 15% OFF rn!

Anastasia sugar glow palette – up to 510 points

If you’re more of a powder rather than liquid highlighter gal, this highlighter palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is another tried and true, top-rated favorite. We love using it to add just a little extra glow. It’s 15% OFF too!

Cream Eyeshadow – up to 525 points

Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow in Champagne is the best base color to wear alone or to build upon with other shadows. It’s a cream to powder formula that goes on sheer with a sweep of the finger, or with more coverage if you use a brush! These cream shadows are so beautiful, stay all day, never crease, and come in nine stunning hues.

Pillow Talk Lipstick – up to 525 points

The NUMBER ONE selling lipstick on Nordstrom’s site is Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk! It’s the most perfect neutral EVER and is always in Corrine’s constant rotation! Luckily, they created a Pillow Talk Medium (!!!) shade that is just the slightest bit darker, which is PERFECT for this time of year.

It has a little bit of a berry tone, which we love for the holiday months. There’s also a Pillow Talk Intense shade which is even deeper if you’re wanting something more along those lines.

Elemis pro-collagen gift set – up to 1,875 points

This set is the best of both worlds! The pro-collagen marine cream is SO dreamy. Just thick and supple and luxurious, but NOT greasy in the least bit. It even increases skin’s hydration 247% in just one hour!! And the pro-collagen cleansing balm is another Mint Arrow tried and true fave. It is like a wash from heaven, SO buttery soft on your skin and it washes all your makeup away and leaves your skin feeling so moisturized and refreshed!

MAC Fix+ Setting Spray – up to 421 points

We always like to finish off a makeup look by using a setting spray, and MAC Fix+ setting spray truly ensures all-day wear! This spray gives a boost of hydration while binding your makeup for a flawless look. It also boasts green tea, chamomile, and cucumber to soothe your skin so it’s great to spritz on a bare face as well. Also on sale for 15% OFF!

Anastasia Micro-Stroking Brow Pen – up to 280

This Brow Pen keeps selling out everywhere because it’s truly phenomenal!! If you want the look of microbladed brows but don’t want to pay the pain or price tag, this is the product for you!

When Corrine uses this, she fills in her brows like normal with a brow pencil and then she layers this stroking pen (in Taupe) in the direction of her brow hairs. It gives it a killer 3D look, like all of a sudden she grew a bunch of brow hairs! Hurry and grab it before it sells out, at 15% OFF rn too!

Pillow Talk lip liner – up to 375 points

TIP: Corrine usually puts the lipstick on first and then lines her lips with the Lip Cheat Lip Liner in the same shade (Pillow Talk) to seal it in, BUT if she wants to make her lipstick last super long she will line first and fill in her lips completely with the liner then put on the lipstick! Voila, the perfect long lasting lip.

Living Proof dry shampoo – up to 645 points

If you have followed along for awhile you know that this Living Proof dry shampoo is a Mint Arrow tried and true fave! It’s the best at cleansing, it has a great smell, it’s easy to use for beginners. It shows just a little bit if you have darker hair, but you can massage/brush it out.

Laura Mercier setting powder – up to 548 points

THIS is Corrine’s favorite setting powder of all time. Ever. Period. She will never not have this in her makeup drawer!

She had used Laura Mercier’s regular translucent powder in the past and loved it, but this one is even better! The Honey color doesn’t leave a white cast and blends amazingly with her foundation. It locks in makeup, absorbs oil, and seriously looks flawless ALL DAY!! This has insane reviews, so we know it’s not just her makeup obsession!! Plus, it’s 15% OFF rn as well.
