FACE & BASE
LOreal infallible primer
Real techniques miracle complexion sponge
A staple in my collection! I get a smooth even base with this sponge and it doesn’t soak up all my foundation like regular sponges. I love how to can get different finishes depending on HOW damp the sponge is. I don’t know what I’d do without this sponge now.
Maybelline fit me foundation
This is my day to day foundation and it does just what I need it too, the coverage is medium but really buildable and blends well into my skin creating an even matte base.
Make up revolution contour kit.
I struggle with finding a contour shade that doesn’t look muddy on my skin and this one seems to work well. The highlight shade is subtle yet gives a pretty glow but can be made more intense on top of a cream highlight. I don’t really tend to use the blush shade, its just a bit too pink for me.
Freedom fixing spray.
Once I’ve done my entire make up, I spritz this all over my face just to set everything and keep it in place. Works really well for me.
I could talk about this mascara all day, I wont, but I could. It’s the best mascara I’ve ever used (Bold statement) but it just really curls my lashes, give my eyes dimension and captures lashes I didn’t even know I had.
Maybelline lash sensational
In my opinion the best drugstore mascara out there at the moment. Another product I use day to day and I love how it opens my eyes right up and doesn’t crumble after a few hours
Barry M dazzle dust.
I used to use these when I was a teeny bopper but I’ve recently added a few pale shimmers to my collection, they’re really good for adding some glamour to an eye look or just adding a small amount to the inner corners can really make a smokey eye pop
MAC “lingering” brow pencil
Perfect for outlining and defining my brows, the tiny nip makes it super easy to create natural looking hair strokes at the start of my brows. This pencil should be in everyone’s collection for sure.
NYX eyeshadow – fantasy
I’m a big fan of NYX cosmetics and this shadow is no exception, its the ideal colour for my crease and blends like a dream.
Rimmel exaggerate liquid liner
The blackest of black liners available in the drugstore, I’ve used the liner since forever and I still love it to this day. Super easy to change the thickness of your liner and define your eyes. Love love love this.
Maybelline master precise eyeliner
Recently discovered this liner when I won it in a giveaway and I’ve fallen in love with it. It’s like a felt tip pen which is great for winged liner novices like myself. Super precise as the name suggests and I’ve already bought a new one for when this runs out.
Glitter eyes loose glitter pot in “Mocha shine”
Such a pretty glitter, I’m obsessed. This was my glitter of choice at Christmas time because I found it really complimented my nude lips and looked super glam on my eyes. Search hooked up shop for more shades!
Amazing shine lashes- 43
Pretty whispy lashes that finish off any eye look, this set fan out towards the end which I love. The band on these is really flexible and they’re so easy to apply. Huge fan of these lashes, deffo on my repurchase list.
MAC Honey love.
Another matte nude shade from MAC, very similar in colour to velvet teddy and an absolute dream to wear, doesn’t dry out my lips and lasts all day.
Make up revolution- chauffeur.
ANOTHER nude but at a more affordable price point. The quality of this lipstick is amazing and the rose gold packaging is stunning.
NYX mega shine lipgloss
This is a really pretty shimmer gloss that looks stunning on the top of any nude lipstick. The formulation isn’t sticky or heavy either. This gloss smells like cherry candies and sweets which I’m obsessed with. Soap and glory sexy mother pucker – rose and shine
A pretty natural pink shine gloss that’s perfect for every day wear. This gloss has a slight tingle which helps make my lips look fuller and more plump. I love the clever play on words soap and glory does with their product names too.
Jeffree star liquid lipstick – androgyny
Probably my favourite lip product of the year. I wear this all the time now and it literally lasts all day. One swipe even application means the product lasts so much longer, I’m so glad beauty bay now carries Jeffree star cosmetics, you’ll be seeing a lot more of them on here this year.
L’Oreal elvive nutrigloss conditioning shine spary.
To my knowledge this is discontinued but you can buy some on amazon. I swear by this spray, no other shine spray actually leaves my hair shiny but not greasy and heavy. If you can get hold of this I’d 100% recommend picking it up. It’s become a holy grail in my hair care routine.
