Makeup, makeup and more makeup!
I think it’s pretty safe to say that I am impartial to a nice eyeshadow palette or a glossy highlighter. The majority of my pay check each month inevitably gets spent on makeup of some sort, and I couldn’t be happier with the little collection I have grown. Over the past 2 years I have tried the cheap to the expensive and I feel like I now have a collection of some of my go to products for a wide variety of looks!
I’m all about versatility. So as you many be able to tell from these products I like to be able to use my products in so many different ways. Each of the palette I own has such a broad spectrum of colours and textures so I can create a variety of looks.
1. NYC Lovatics Eyeshadow palette:
This palette is so pretty and so inexpensive. For the quality of the eye shadows it’s such a win! Although I’ve never owned a Naked palette it really reminds me so much of the kinds of colours. It’s has a wide range of light shimmery shades to more dark and matte shades. The colours blend gorgeously on the lids and they last for such a long time.
2. Tanya Burr Eyebrow Kit
Eyebrows are everything. Eyebrows are the epitome of the more recent part of the 21st century and every makeup brand has something to help us accentuate those hairy little brows! Tanya’s kit is perfect. I love the hot cocoa colour for my eyebrows and I love pebble for contour believe it or not?? The highlight it absolutely gorgeous as well and you can use it not only on the brows but also the eyes and cheeks too. One criticism, I would love it to have a wax incorporated but you can’t have it all!
3. Beauty Blender
ah of course this is a must have for applying any kind of makeup to the face! If you haven’t heard of a beauty blender have you been living under a rock for the past 5 years? Side note- have you seen those “ask your boyfriend what this is called” thing going round on social media gosh it’s hilarious. The beauty blender is the perfect size and the texture is amazing for applying foundation and getting in all the crevices of the face.
4. Freedom Cheek Palette
I’ve done a full post on this palette and let me summarise: It’s. Amazing. Literally best thing since sliced bread! What an English phrase. It’s so pretty and I love the formula and I’ve never had a better highlighter. Even if you have a lighter skin tone I wouldn’t be put off by the darker shades. I use a large khabuki brush and swirl it in all the colours to get just the right shade. The blush shades a gorgeous. The darker shade looks really good with more bronze tones on the eyes. The lighter one is more of a day to day blush. Without a shadow of a doubt it’s the best £6 I’ve ever spent on makeup.
5. Urban Decay Setting Spray
So once you’ve finally mastered that insta makeup face you want to keep it on all day so that your friends can marvel at your brilliant artwork? Well I’ve got your covered with this one. This setting spray feels so refreshing on the face and it really does boost the longevity of my makeup. I use this everyday and it is so nice. After I’ve used up all this little bottle I’m going to have to invest in a larger size. Nothing else really to say about it other than you just must try it.
