Recently I uploaded a video to my YouTube channel. It was the TMI tag (linked below) and I was so pleased with all of the lovely comments that people were leaving. One girl left a comment that she really liked my make-up in the video so I decided to share all the products that I used with you guys. This is also basically a list of all the things that are in my make-up bag permanently these days.
There is nothing more awesome for my face than Benefit's 'The Porefessional'. If you want smooth and flawless make-up then go buy this primer.
Nars 'Sheerglow' became my favourite foundations last year and I have only been able to re-purchase it recently. It feels so light and lovely on your face but still gives great coverage. I also picked up the Nars 'Radiant Creamy Concealer'. I had heard loads of good things about this product online and it really does live up to it's amazing reputation. It stays on all day and covers any blemishes but is still light enough to use as an under-eye concealer too.
An old favourite of mine now, Rimmel 'Stay Matte' pressed powder. It helps your make-up stay in place and you very rarely need to re-powder your skin during the day. It's a really great product for anyone who has oily skin and finds it hard to keep their make-up from moving around during the day
The Urban Decay 'Naked Flushed' is a recent purchase of mine and I've used it every day since I got it. It is a beautiful palette with a light bronzer, a peachy blush, and a FAB sheer, shimmery highlighter. I am obsessed with this. Also, as with all UD products it is very pigmented so a little goes a long way.
The Urban Decay 'Brow Box' is something I've wanted for AGES now and I finally have it. The wax that comes as part of the kit makes all the difference. My brows are honestly looking better than ever in my opinion.
For my eyes, and this is gonna sound like I am trying to promote Urban Decay (I swear I'm not getting payed for this), I use the 'Naked Palette'. I use colour 'Sin' all over my eyelids, it's a nude/ pink shimmery shade. Second colour from the bottom in the eye-shadow image below.
Then I attempt an eye-liner flick. It takes me about 3 hours per eye. No, OK, maybe I'm being a little dramatic there but it is quite difficult for me. I have started using Benefit's 'They're Real Push Up Liner' recently and I like the finish it gives so far. I will do a review of it in a few weeks.
For mascara I used Bourjois Paris 'Volume Glamour'. This is a product that I have re-purchased many times. It is so reliable. It makes your lashes long and think.
Finally, last product. On my lips for this video I used Rimmel's Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 107. I've loved this colour since Kate Moss' line first came out. So dark and so chic.
I didn't realise how long this post would be. Apologies to all those who hate long text posts. I am off to curl up in bed for the day as I'm not feeling well. But, I'll need sick-day reading material so be sure to leave me a comment letting me know if you've used these products before and what you thought.
