I love reading blogs and watching videos about what makeup people use on daily basis so I thought I would give you a peak into what is in my makeup bag! I have dry/ normal skin and I am quite sensitive to some products, so I tend not to switch around on items too often once I’ve found something that works for me.
♥Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation: 45 Raw Silk
A great foundation that is oil free and light weight so it doesn’t clog up your pores. This foundation is light to medium coverage, but can be built up to a much fuller medium coverage. I apply this with my Lydia Professionals F-010 foundation brush which I purchased from eBay.
♥Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer: 2 Light
This product is raved about so much and personally I think it deserves all the hype it gets! This concealer is a heavy coverage product that blends really nicely. I use this on blemishes and under my eyes.
♥Natural Collection Loose Powder: Neutral Translucent
Natural Collection is such a great brand. All the items are under £2 and their products, like the powders, work so well for me. This powder isn’t cakey feeling and leaves my skin quite matte. I apply this with my Body Shop Face and Body powder brush.
♥Natural Collection Blusher Powder: Pink Cloud
A great light pink blusher. I apply this with a Cosmopolitan blusher brush from Superdrug.
♥Urban Decay Naked Pallet
One of my favourite makeup pieces of all time! I’m sure you’ve all seen this pallet and heard great reviews about it. I like to use Virgin (a shimmery white/ pink) on the lid and Naked (matte light brown) in the crease using the flat eyeshadow brush that comes in the pallet and a Prestige Shadow Sweep #104 brush.
♥Bourjois Eyeshadow Duo: 16 Crazy baby
This product was given to me by my friend and I don’t think they sell this anymore but the white shimmer colour is great as an inner-corner highlight.
♥M.U.A Eyeliner Pencil: Rich Brown
I love this eyeliner it’s so pigmented and creamy so it’s great to put above the lash line. M.U.A eyeliners are only £1. I would recommend checking them out, especially the brown as it’s much more natural looking than applying a black liner.
♥Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara: Glam Black
I remember getting this a couple of years ago and the first time I used this mascara I was like WOW! It makes my eyelashes so long and thick, it’s a staple in my makeup bag.
♥Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara: Black
This mascara does exactly what it says on the tin (well tube). It makes my eyelashes so volumised and black I just can’t live without it!
♥Revlon Colourburst Lipbutter
When I heard about these being released in the US I wanted them right away! They eventually came out a few months later in the UK whilst Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics, so naturally I bought 3 in one go (Tutti Frutti, Berry Smoothie and Strawberry Shortcake). They’re so moisturising and have a lovely colour pay off!
These products create a natural look that is perfect for daily wear such as for college or sixth form. I hope you enjoyed this post and helped you if you’re looking for any new makeup to try out!
