I did one of these a few months ago and, since then, I’ve purchased different products/been sent them, and swapped a few makeup items out of my makeup bag to give the new ones a go. I’m really loving the products I’m using at the moment so I thought I’d share it with you all.
Vichy Makeup Bag
The makeup bag I am currently using was sent to me by eChemist.co.uk as part of a skin set, which can be found in the link provided. I will also be doing a full review of the contents of the bag so be sure to keep an eye out! I use the day cream on a daily basis, usually before I apply my makeup so I will insert a picture of that here!
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation True Ivory £8.29
This foundation has been a favourite of mine for the past couple months and has even been featured in a few of my previous posts. I don’t use foundation every day, I rarely use it and only when I’m having a bad skin day, but I keep it on hand anyway. This foundation is long lasting and has great coverage.
Real Techniques Stippling Brush £10.99
If I use foundation, this is the brush I rely on for the perfect application.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer Fair 1 £4.19
Again, I’ve spoken a lot about this concealer as it’s very popular in the blogging community. This concealer is extremely affordable and well worth a purchase. I currently have two of these and am looking at getting a few more for Christmas, possibly also trying the colour correcting ones also.
Beauty Blender (Primark) £1.50 (Pack of 2)
I think the Primark beauty blenders are underrated. They are insanely cheap and are very similar to the Real Techniques blender.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Powder Translucent £5.99
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this powder before on here but it’s insane. I think it’s such a lovely little compact powder, coming with a little sponge and a mirror, so it’s easy to carry around with you if you need a touch-up or just a mirror on hand.
Real Techniques Powder Brush £10.99
Again, I’m still using this brush. I have yet to purchase some more so I’m still depending on the same brushes, although I have no need to look for more as Real Technique brushes are extremely reliable.
MUA Pixel Perfect Multi-Blush Peach Bloom £3
This blush is perfect for those of you looking for a subtle colour. I’m quite pale myself and like natural looking makeup, so this blush is perfect for me. It gives me a little tinge of colour on my cheeks and doesn’t look like I have makeup on. I also use blush from ELF and Rimmel, though this is the one I use daily.
Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99
This is the brush I rely on when applying my blusher.
Collection Eyebrow Kit Brunette £3.99
I’ve tried using a few other eyebrow products but I keep coming back to this kit. I feel like it leaves me with more precise, natural brows. Over the holidays, I’m hoping to try and use an eyebrow pencil but, for now, I will be using this along with the ELF eyebrow brush.
L’Oreal Paris Miss Baby Roll Mascara Waterproof Black £7.99
As you all know, the lash sensational mascara was my ultimate favourite mascara for years. I was sent the Miss Baby Roll mascara recently and FELL IN LOVE. This product is unbelievable and gives me incredible lashes, dark and fluttery, but still natural looking. I use my eyelash curler before application and find it lasts all day.
For lips, the products I use range. I usually apply a bit of lip balm and, depending on my mood, I sometimes wear lipstick and other days I don’t. If I do apply it, I change it up a lot. I’m thinking about writing a post dedicated to lipstick as I have so many!
NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray £7
This setting spray is incredible. I read a review, I’m not entirely sure whether it was a joke or not, about a woman whos makeup stayed intact after she got into a car accident because of this spray. Real or not, the reviews are amazing and I went out to buy it. This spray beats all primer I have ever used and really helps my makeup stay on during the day.
