My Makeup Staples

My favourite primer is the Optical Illusion Complexion Primer by Urban Decay. It leaves a lovely silky matte finish and keeps your makeup in place all day!

The MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 has been in my makeup bag since I can remember! I have branched out and tested other foundations, but I either find them too drying or too oily… The Studio Fix Fluid foundation is perfect for combination skin and has all day coverage.

I looooooove the Laura Mercier  Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It keeps your makeup in place all day and stops your mascara from smudging under your eyes. I would highly recommend (if you haven’t already got it).

When it comes to a bronzer, I am yet to find my favourite. So, suggestions are welcome! At the moment I am using the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light. This bronzer is fab, but just a little too orange toned for me.

Moving on to highlighter, the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight-01 is beautiful. It blends perfectly and stays all day. However, after seeing the Lottie London Shimmer Squad highlight pallet EVERYWHERE and hearing such amazing things, I had to try it, and I must say, it is perfect and has a good selection of colours. I highly recommend.

Eyebrows. My favourite favourite favourite eyebrow kit is the Dark Brow Kit by Bobbi Brown. I got this in New York over a year ago and am yet to hit pan which is amazing considering I use it every day.

My favourite eyeshadow palette at the moment is the Dusk til Dawn palette by NYX. It has a fab variety of light and dark colours. The shadows are very pigmented and blend perfectly. I’ve been using this every day this month.

The Liquidlast Liner by MAC is another product that has been a staple in my makeup bag for years. It is by far THE BEST long wear eyeliner I have ever used… It even stays on in the shower. I love it.

A mascara I have been using for years is the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. I have branched out to other mascaras but always end up re-buying this.

As for my favourite lipstick, Paramount by MAC is a lipstick I have been using for a few years now, it’s a lovely rusty red and can be worn day and night. I think I’ve re-purchased this around four times now…
