These are the products I use on a daily basis & gravitate towards using because I know they work for me.
Being a makeup user since the age of 9 (when I used to put on unblended blue eyeshadow) and using makeup for years has made me finally work out which products I truly love and enjoy using.
Real Techniques sponge
This paired with my Mac foundation is heaven, It creates the most flawless base and blends out within seconds. Nothing more to say.
Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
Ohhh my god. I finally found my holy grail foundation, that matches me perfectly, with great coverage that you can build up!
I am the shade NC10 in the foundation, and it has a normal to dewy finish on me, I guess this depends on your skin type though.
This Mac Foundation racks up a total of about £29 if you buy the pump, but has lasted me over half a year. I only need one pump for my whole face (if that).
ColourPop Fem Rosa palette
This palette is an absolute dream to work with. It is super handy & small but also gorgeous, and it fits perfectly into my makeup bag. Even using one of these shades all over for one-wash of colour looks beautiful.
NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray
My all-time fave setting spray at a price of £7 always makes my base look 100x better and improves my makeup. I can’t fault it, a definite repurchase as soon as it’s done.
Mac Next to Nothing Powder in Light
This is the first high-end powder I’ve ever invested in, and as you can see, I’ve hit pan. This is a great powder that sets everything down but looks natural and prepares you for other steps like a bronzer.
It’s super smooth and creamy & I’d recommend if you want to invest into a face powder.
Rimmel Glam Eyes
The best, thin brush-tip eyeliner and for £5 you can’t go wrong, I’ve used this for years & don’t plan to change! I never have a bad eyeliner day when I use this.
Seventeen Stay Time Concealer
(around £4.50 & available at Boots.).
Sometimes I use this concealer without any foundation, just this guy because it matches me amazingly and is the most perfect formula.
I use the shade extra fair, and this is probably the 30th tube I’ve gone through (I’m due to buy another!).
This is perfect for pale girlies, but unfortunately, their shade range sucks.
Naked Flushed trio
The most beautiful natural looking highlight is in the middle of this palette, I always get compliments when I wear this on a day-to-day basis. I think it’s because the tone suits how fair & cool toned I am, and the bronzer is super easy to use and blend. It’s lasted me a while, and it really is a holy-grail that isn’t spoken about enough.
Freedom Duo Brow Powder in Ash Brown
This bad boy is £3 and is amazing quality. It’s super pigmented but easy to use & blend. You can do an ‘Instagram’ and use the two shades to make a faded brow.
The fact that it’s such a cool-toned colour is ideal for the drugstore because it’s so hard to find a natural looking powder for myself.
I personally stick to the first colour (it has a huge dent!) and use this everytime I do my makeup.
Definitely my holy grail brow product.
Freedom Curl Mascara
I will always use drugstore mascaras, buying high-end mascaras just doesn’t appeal to me at the minute. I have long eyelashes, so I find it easy to find a good mascara, at £1 this one is perfect for me as it lengthens and adds volume also.
