Do you ever walk into a store like Sephora or the makeup aisle in Target and get so overwhelmed? Are you intimidated by lipstick? Or maybe just by the sheer number of makeup brushes that exist? Well, makeup sticks may just be your new best friend!

Not only are makeup sticks a fantastic option for beginners or those who aren’t as comfortable with powder or liquid products, but they are also fantastic space savers. Sometimes you can even find a makeup stick that is a perfect color for eyes, lips, AND cheeks, making it an awesome multi-use tool. Plus, since they aren’t liquids or powders, they’re perfect for travel.

My only complaint with makeup sticks is the color selection. At first glance, there are hundreds of different shades of lip, eye, and face products. However, I had to search for a really long time for the perfect lip shade for my complexion. So many of the options were too brown for my liking. But, in the end, I found a winner and it has fast become a new go-to fave.

In order to fully share my thoughts and advice on makeup sticks, I made you a video! Enjoy!

As a matter of fact, if you’re a makeup stick fan, you can even find skincare sticks! Notably, the Milk Makeup Cooling Water Stick is one of my favorites. In fact, I keep it in the fridge for a refreshing pick me up or night time cool down. Of course, there’s even stick sunscreen! And you all know how I feel about sunscreen.
