It was only when I turned 24 that I really started to care about what make up I was using. As a student at University it was a lot of fake eye lashes, bad eyebrows, foundation that was far too dark for your complexion, the winged eyeliner that I could never do equally on both eyes and that shiny forehead that would always make an appearance after a night of dancing and drinking.
Now at the ripe *old* age of 28 I enjoy finding new products and brands, testing them out and spending a little bit more for better quality.
These are my go-to beauty products right now:
ICONIC LONDON’S illuminators – in my opinion, these are the best liquid highlighters out there. Just a dab on the cheek can give you that gorgeous glow. Shades in photograph are champagne shimmer and pink pearl.
L’Oreal Volume Millions Lashes Feline – I love trying out new mascaras. The wand says a lot about how it will apply. This is one of the easiest mascaras I have used to get a curl, volume and no clumps.
Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Perfecting Primer – life changing. My make up stays on all day and I don’t need to reapply. It is silky smooth on the skin and gives it a perfect base.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in shade Velvet Beige – it had been a long time since I had worn lip liner but I saw Emma Louise Connolly do an Insta story with this and absolutely loved the colour. I use it as a base on my lips and it keeps any lipstick on longer. I bought three – you know, just incase it is discontinued…
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Shade 17 – perfect for every day wear. Gorgeous pinky nude colour and feels so velvety and soft on the lips.
L’Oreal Bonjour Nudista Awakening Skin Tint in medium – I mix this with my moisturiser for a base before blush and bronzer.
No 7 Instant Illusions Rapid Radiance Balm – for those no make up days, this is perfect. It is light weight and more like a tinted moisturiser.
L’Oreal Le Blush in shade peach – pop of colour for spring with this gorgeous blush.
Make up bag is by Lily England. Couldn’t resist the marble print and rose gold accents! So beautiful.
Those are go-to beauty products right now! It chops and changes every now and again so if this blog is something you’re interested in then watch this space for more content similar. I have to admit that my make up drawer does need some TLC…where is Marie Kondo when you need her?
May your day be as flawless as your make up.
