I was going through my make-up the other day and I decided to share my must-haves with you guys because I’m always getting asked about what I am wearing in certain photos or just in everyday life.
Some of you may hate these products and some of you may love them but remember that everybody’s skin is different and they are not going to perform the same on everybody.
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I adore this foundation for many many reasons but the main one is that is the most natural foundation that I have ever worn. It is low medium coverage but it can be built to a high medium without looking cakey in the slightest which is great because some foundations can be incredibly difficult to build up. I use this as an everyday foundation and I wear the shade ‘001 Fair Porcelain’ which is one of the lightest foundations I have ever found from an affordable brand and in general, but it is still ever so slightly too dark for me as I am insanely fair. The shade range for this foundation is pretty decent but they need to bring out darker shades as they simply do not go dark enough. It leaves your skin looking naturally radiant and blends beautifully with other products.
Rimmel ‘Oh My Gloss!’ – 130 Purrr … Glossy Cat
I wear this lip gloss over every single nude lipstick that I own and even by itself. Putting this over your nude lipstick helps to make it look more natural and gives your lips a gorgeous plump look. It doesn’t leave your lips sticky and even though there are shimmers in the lip gloss, your lips will not look glittery unless you look incredibly close to them. This is a gift from God to those of us who have dry lips because it takes away the dry, cracked look and it means you can transform a dry matte lipstick into a stunning shimmery one, which means you get the shade you want but without the dryness.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – 05
This concealer is going to give you medium coverage, hydrate the under eyes and leave you looking like you have had the best sleep on the planet. I struggled for so long to find a concealer that wouldn’t look cakey or crack throughout the day and this is the only one that I can leave on all day and not have to worry about that happening.
Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting powder – Blossom Glow
This is a very recent discovery of mine as the brand has only just come to the UK. I love this highlighter because it can give you the most gorgeous, natural highlight in the world but it can also blind you If you wanted it too because it can be built it effortlessly. Blossom Glow is beautiful on paler skin tones and while you may be scared of the pink tones in it showing up on the skin … it doesn’t. On the skin, it is a stunning champagne colour that can give you the lit from within look.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
I used to think that setting sprays were a load of bollocks and only ever bought them to help and powders I was wearing to set into my skin and look less powdery but this … this is magic. I have tried my make-up without this many times in my life but it always end up looking awful by the end of the day (I generally have my make-up on 8-12 hours a day) but when I apply this, it does not budge. My make-up stays looking fresh all day and I never have to touch up anything bar my lipstick which I think is just amazing.
