So I wanted to give you a quick low down on my top five beauty favourites. These are the products which I would buy again and again. Some of these have been in my life for YEARS, whilst others are much more recent discoveries…
The ultimate highlighter and bronzer in one, this is a firm favourite of mine! The highlighter is a warm pearly shade and is subtle enough to wear both day and night. The bronzer is super blendable so is perfect for contouring as well as providing that natural sun kissed look. I literally carry this with me everywhere and it has been engrained into my make-up routine (I’d be lost without it). Also let’s not forget that beautiful rose gold packaging!
I have been buying this repeatedly for about 4 years now. It’s got a fairly big price tag (£50), but it lasts about 6 months (I ask for it for both my birthday and at Christmas). It provides the perfect buildable coverage so I can literally wear it every day for any occasion. During the week I will often just apply it over some concealer to provide light even coverage. However at the weekend or for nights out, I will dust it over a liquid foundation. Not only does it provide that extra bit of coverage, but it sets the makeup (without looking cakey). Also if you have combination skin like me, it’s great to keep in your handbag to touch up throughout the day. I literally could not live without this beauty.
This is literally the most elegant nail varnish I have ever seen. The packaging it so BEAUTIFUL but believe me, it is not just a pretty face… The colour is very intense so you only need one coat. I often apply a clear top coat and it lasts all week without a single chip. When it comes to nail varnish I’m a firm believer that you certainly get what you pay for. I have shade ‘Lady Peek’ which is PERFECT for the upcoming winter months.
I have tried SO many eyeliners in the past and have struggled to find one that is both highly pigmented and precise. I am also one of those people that lacks the patients to sit in front of a mirror hours on end perfecting my eye make-up. The Pur liquid eyeliner however answered all my prayers. It has a super fine felt tip so application is not only precise but it’s really easy. It also contains Passion Flower oil which provides the skin with the moisture is needs without smudging. I wore this on a night out last weekend and it literally stayed put all night (see ya panda eyes).
I have used MAC lipsticks for YEARS as I love their staying power and vivid colours. However when I got to try out Bobbi Browns new Crush range I was instantly converted. They are literally EVERYTHING I look for in a lipstick. Not only does the colour last all day but the lipstick is rich in beeswax so is super moisturising (almost feels like a gloss). They also have really strong pigments so you can still create a little bit of drama. What more could I ask for?…. My favourite shades are ‘Bare’ (a perfect nude) and ‘Regal’ (a yellow red)
Do let me know what your top five products are! Would love to know.
