Jaclyn Hill’s Ride or Die Makeup Tag!
Hi guys! Today’s post is inspired by Jaclyn Hill’s Ride or Die Make up Tag! Jaclyn Hill is my favourite YouTube blogger and I was so happy to see her create such a cool tag that invites everyone to participate in. It’s also a breath of fresh air from her usual YouTube videos – so I decided to do it too. If you want to know what my Ride or Die Make Up are, keep on reading and comment below and do the Ride or Die Make Up Tag too!
**Disclaimer: It was so hard to choose my Ride or Die Make Up so I tried my best to not have more than 1 item per category – I did add a few categories though!
1. Ride or Die Primer: Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer and the Makeup Forever Step 1 Mattifying Base Primer
Alright guys I know that you’re supposed to only have 1 product per category but my skin unfortunately doesn’t agree to that! I have combination skin – so I do need a mattifying primer and smoothing one and I would pick this Tarte Smoothing Primer and the Make Up Forever Step 1 Mattifying Primer any day! The Tarte primer is the best nourishing and hydrating primer I have ever used that also fills in your pores. The Make Up Forever Mattifying Base Primer is the best primer I have used on my oily areas (T-Zone) that actually reduces oil and helps foundation stay in place all day. I definitely don’t need any other primers as long as I got this perfect combo!
2. Ride or Die Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
You guys already know that I would pick the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation as my ride or die foundation! I raved about this foundation in my Best Foundations for Oily Skin post and my June favourites post! I love this foundation and I honestly don’t know what I would do with my make up without it! It’s a great price point for the quality that it delivers, its hydrating but keeps you matte, it looks natural even if you layer it to a full coverage look and a little goes such a long way!Get it here!
3. Ride or Die Concealer: Too Faced Born This Way Concealer
I am a huge fan of Too Faced products because the quality of their products are so amazing; so it’s no surprise that my ride or die concealer would be the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer! It’s hard to find a foundation and concealer that’s equally amazing and from the same brand but trust me, Too Faced nailed it! I talked about this concealer in my July Favourites blog post but in short – it’s my ride or die because its hydrating, buildable coverage, looks natural and does not crease!Get it here!
4. Ride or Die Powder Foundation: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 24 HR Powder Foundation
The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 24 HR Powder Foundation is definitely my ride or die powder foundation because it helps my skin stay matte and flawless all day, its not drying and it gives you buildable coverage. You can either dust a thin layer on after you blend out your liquid foundation to set everything in place, or you can just use concealer and layer a thicker layer of this powder and use this as your foundation! Both ways work perfectly and its affordable, hence it’s my ride or die!Get it here!
5. Ride or Die Under Eye Setting Powder: Anastasia Banana Powder
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder is my ride or die under eye setting powder because I love me some brightened under eyes and the best one I have ever used is this one! It protects the concealer from creasing, it doesn’t look cakey, it's very brightening (but doesn’t look crazy when you take photos), it stays the same way the whole day and its not drying. Definitely can’t live without this banana powder!Get it here!
6. Ride or Die Loose Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
My ride or die translucent powder is definitely the one from Laura Mercier. I have tried a lot of different translucent powders (NYX, Make Up Forever, Morphe, RCMA) but I found that this one is the best! It’s not drying and it helps me stay matte all day. I bake my nose everyday and this is the only powder that works and prevents me from greasing!Get it here!
7. Ride or Die Contour Powder: Sephora Collection Colourful Face Powders – Contour Powder in Los Cabos
Los Cabos is the best contour powder I have ever used in terms of shade and pigmentation! It’s a very neutral – just the right amount of cool tone and warm tone brown! It lasts all day; it doesn’t make me look like I have a warm contour but it doesn’t make me look muddy either. Its pigmented but its also very buildable, I can’t live without it! If you want to check out a more in depth review on this powder, check out my June favourites!Get it here!
8. Ride or Die Bronzer: Too Faced Sweet Tea Bronzer
The Too Faced Sweet Tea Bronzer is my ride or die bronzer because it gives me such a nice glow and it has 2 shades! You can look very natural with this bronzer or you can have a strong bronzed look with the darker shade in this bronzer. Both colours are warm but neutral; and looks great even after my make up oxidizes throughout the day. Most importantly, it has an awesome shimmer! It’s super subtle, and it looks great on the skin! If you want to read more about this bronzer check out my June favourites!Get it here!
9. Ride or Die Blush: 9N Blush Palette
I am a sucker for natural toned blushes that are not too pink, orange or berry toned so my ride or die blush is definitely the 9N blush palette from Morphe! This palette has blushes that are all very light brown and nude toned, which is suitable for a lot of skin tones and all of the shades look amazing! It comes with 5 creamy matte blushes and 4 shimmery and luminous blushes – you don’t need any other blushes as long as you have this palette.Get it here!
10. Ride or Die Highlight: Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow
The struggle was beyond real to pick a ride or die highlight palette but after a few days of thinking I finally decided on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow! I couldn’t pick between That Glow and Gleam at first but I went with That Glow because it’s more versatile than Gleam! Also, you get 4 colours to choose from, which is perfect for me because I can never pick which highlighter to wear.

11. Ride or Die Mascara: Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint Mascara
I love this mascara because it’s thin in formula (not clunky), its very buildable and it really makes your lashes look flirty, long and full! I usually put 3 layers of this mascara on and it still stays on all day, looks natural and makes your lashes look great at the same time!Get it here!
12. Ride or Die Eyeliner: Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown
It was difficult to pick a ride or die eyeliner because I have been testing out a bunch of new eyeliners that are new to me personally. I used to only use the black high precision eyeliner from the Sephora Collection but I just felt like it was too intense for a day time look so I started trying this Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner in Mad Max Brown and I love it! You can use this for simple day time look or a night time look! Its pigmented, easy to work with and it doesn’t smudge!Get it here!
13. Ride or Die Eye Shadow Palette: Morphe 35O Palette
I was struggling to pick an eye shadow palette because I have a whole bunch of eye shadow palettes but I always have a hard time using all the colours or most colours in each palette! But I ended up choosing the Morphe 35O palette just because it has all the neutral or baby puke colours (as Jaclyn Hill would describe them as) that I use on a daily basis. I have my own Z palette of a variation of these colours but I found that this palette has most of what I need! Also, the Morphe eye shadows are very pigmented and easy to work with; and the price is very affordable!Get it here!
14. Ride or Die Lashes: Currently do not use lashes so please recommend your favourites!
15. Ride or Die Lip Liner: Colourpop Lippie Pencil in BFF2
The Colourpop lippie pencil in BFF2 is my absolute ride or die lip liner! I use this liner with almost every colour lipstick, liquid lipstick, lip gloss or even on its own. It’s often a struggle to find a perfect nude brown lip liner that matches perfectly with your skin – but the BFF2 pencil is my shade match! It’s the perfect brown toned nude for me and it looks great with any liquid lipstick that I have. Definitely my ride or die lip liner because it gives me such a nice and full pout too! If you want to see an in depth review of this lip liner check out my June lip favourites!Get it here!
16. Ride or Die Lip Gloss: Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in My Jam
This is my ride or die lip gloss because it’s a metallic creme finish, so I have the option of not wearing a liquid lipstick with it! It also looks nice with or without a lip liner and its very pigmented – it gives you such a nice metallic, glossy lip!Get it here!
17. Ride or Die Lip Stick: Mac Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Whirl
Ever since I discovered liquid lipsticks (cult favourite: Lolita by Kat Von D), I barely use lipsticks just because I like the fact that liquid lipsticks are more matte and transfers less. But, if I had to pick a ride or die lipstick, it would be Whirl from Mac. It’s my ride or die because its 1 of the first lipsticks I fell in love with and I am a brown toned lipstick kind of girl! Whirl has the perfect balance of mauve, brown and red – and it looks good with any look and on everyone!Get it here!
18. Ride or Die Liquid Lipsticks: Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K and Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Ashton
Guys, it took me 3 days to choose a ride or die liquid lipstick so I ended up choosing 2 because it was pretty impossible for me to only choose 1! The Candy K Lip Kit from Kylie Cosmetics and Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Ashton are my ride or die liquid lipsticks because I love their formulas, pigmentation, lasting power and colours! I think these liquid lipsticks go with a lot of different looks and they look great; definitely ride or dies!
