As a beauty blogger and a 'hoarder' of makeup I tend to try out a lot of makeup products. But these are my ''holy grail' products that I will continue to repurchase and use on most days.
Smashbox photo finish primer
I love this primer.
It makes my foundation go on smoother.
Reduces fine line and pores.
This primer is worth the price tag. I've had this for years (used most days) and I have plenty left.
Also it doesn't cause my skin to break out.
You only need to use a small amount as it goes a long way.
Estee Lauder Double wear foundation
If you read my blog a lot you will know I love this foundation. I haven't found a foundation that is better than this.
This is foundation is medium/full coverage, gives a semi matt finish and makes your face look flawless.
I have done a review of this foundation here
MUA Pro base prime and conceal
This adds radiance under my eyes and colour corrects.
I use this product before I apply foundation and concealer.
It gets rid of any dark circles under your eyes. With this product you will need to use a concealer on top.
(I re purchased this product yesterday)
Estee Lauder High cover concealer
1N Extra Light
I love this concealer as it is full coverage.
It gets rid of dark circles
Doesn't settle into fine lines and it doesn't look cakey on the skin
It's also really easy to travel with as it comes with a mirror inside
Urban Decay Beached bronzer
When it comes to bronzer I like it to be pigmented and for it to be noticeable on my skin (even though I am pale)
I was really pleased when I managed to order this online (from Urban Decay) before it sold out.
I've used this bronzer nearly everyday since it came out and I haven't' even hit pan (yet)
This bronzer is well worth £20 and is my favourite high end bronzer
The bronzer is matt and is easy to blend
I've used this blush for years! It is my favourite of all time.
This blush goes with every outfit and every makeup look
When it comes to blush I tend to stick with neutral/plum shades
This gives you a natural fresh glow on the skin
I have a back up of this product for when it runs out. As when I worked on the Benefit makeup counter I got told it's getting discontinued.
Maybelline 24 hr colour tattoo
50 Eternal Silver
I love Maybelline colour tattoos. They are the perfect eyeshadow base.
They are really pigmented, easy to blend, last a long time and don't crease
I have 10 of the Maybelline colour tattoos in total. Eternal Silver is my favourite shade.
Le Volume De Chanel Mascara
I try many different mascaras and I always come back to this one. Nothing beats this mascara.
It adds length and volume to my lashes.
This is the blackest mascara I have ever used.
My eyes are really sensitive and this mascara doesn't irritate them. It is really comfortable to wear.
This mascara doesn't make your eyelashes look spidery or clump.
It also lasts a really long time aswell.
Maybelline Lasting drama 24hr Gel eyeliner
I re purchased this product yesterday as mine is nearly finished. I am hoping the new formula is exactly the same.
This eye liner lasts all day on the waterline (my eyes are watery)
Ideal if you have sensitive eyes
The product itself is really black
It doesn't smudge or fade throughout the day.
Essence Lip liner
06 Satin Mauve
I love Essence lip liners in general, so much I have 10 of them.
These glide ontop the lips, don't drag and are easy to sharpen.
They are pigmented and don't dry out the lips.
These are comparable to the Urban Decay lip liners. But I find the Essence lip liners sharpen better.
Twig (satin finish)
Mac lipsticks in general I am not a fan of. This is a holy grail product because of it's shade.
When I wear a 'nude lip' this is the lipstick I always use along with Essence Satin Mauve lip liner. This is my perfect nude lip combination.
Twig was recommended by one of the Mac makeup artist girls. As I originally wanted Whirl but it was out of stock.
Urban Decay High Colour lip gloss
I have 5 colours from this range and Big Bang is my favourite.
I wore this last year for my leavers ball and I got compliments wearing it.
This lipgloss is more like a liquid lipstick as its really pignmented and lasts a long time.
