When it comes to make-up and beauty, I love nothing more than trying new products and discovering new favourites.
However, there are always those few “holy grail” products that I go back to time and time again. Those I reach for on a daily basis, that are perfect for work and the weekend.
Recently, I’ve really found my signature style when it comes to my everyday make-up look so I thought I’d share with you the products I’ve been loving.
1. Collection Primed and Ready Primer in Cool Rose
Up until about 12 months ago, I never bothered with primer. I thought it was just one of those things brands made you THINK you needed. This though, had switched up my name-up game.
It’s silly smooth, illuminating and is the perfect base to apply foundation over. And it really keeps my make-up on ALL day. If I forget to use it, I really notice a difference in my make-ups lasting power.
2. Collection Lasting Perfection and Maybelline Anti-Age Eraser Eye Concealers
One is a cult classic & the other I’ve seen mixed reviews of but both are key in my daily routine.
At nearly 27, I’m reaching for Anti-Age products more and more but this Maybelline concealer is GOOD. It covers blemishes & dark circles like a dream and I’ve not found it to be cakey.
As for the Collection concealer, well, what can I say. Everyone raves about this for good reason. It’s perfect for brighting under the eyes & gives great coverage.
3. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
I’ve already raved about this foundation here so won’t bore you again but the name doesn’t lie. It’s magic.
4. Hourglass Surreal Light Palette
Another product I’ve raved about recently is this beauty. It contains powder, highlighter, blush AND bronzer so it’s all you need. I love all five shades in here, and am reaching for it daily.
5. Make Up For Ever eyebrow pencil
Eyebrows were never something I included in my beauty routine but once I started I could see why everyone did. They make SUCH a difference.
Finding the right product was so hard though. I didn’t get on with dark wax products as I gave ash blonde hair, and pencils were always to harsh.
I searched this on a whim in Sephora when I was in Barcelona and was hooked. It’s the perfect match for my brows,is way to apply, and comes with a highlighter and spooly to tame them brows.
6. Urban Decay Ultimate Naked Basixs and NARS Long Hot Summer eyeshadow palettes
If it’s a matte eye I want, I reach for UD. If it’s shimmer, it’s NARS. Both are filled with bronze, copper & taupe shades that have great colour pay-off, blend really well and last all day.
7. Collection Extreme Bold Eyeliner
Drawing on your feline flicks is easy with this liner. The nib is the perfect shape, it glides across the lid and is super black. I love this AND it’s crazy cheap too.
8. Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes mascara
Again, I’ve raved about this before so will keep this short. BUY THIS MASCARA. That’s all.
What make-up products can’t you live without? Is there anything you think I should try?
