Firstly let me start with how much I love my little acrylic makeup storage box. I wanted to order one to see what they were like. It was £10.99 from eBay. I will be buying a couple more plus some of the larger storage drawers!
In this set is just my daily makeup with a few changeovers amongst it, like different lipsticks/liners, compact powders and primer. But below is basically my staples currently.
Most days I use the Maybelline Baby skin as a primer. I love how smooth and soft it makes my skin feel. As well as filling in any empty pours on my forehead and giving my face a level base for applying my foundation.
I currently mix 2 foundations (I have a habit of doing this for better coverage). I use Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin with a drop or 2 of the Max Faxtor skin luminizer to give myself a fresher, brighter base. As you can tell I’m nearly finished them. I’m hoping to try Estée Lauder double wear next.
I have always used the same product for concealing. I doubt I will ever change because I love it so much and it works perfectly on my skin. I use the Max Factor Pan stick. It’s great for under my eyes and has great coverage for face demons!
Contour and highlight:
Cant begin to tell you how much I love Sleek makeup at the minute. I’ve started to develop a bit of an obsession. And the best thing about it? It’s cheap!! Currently for contouring and highlighting I’m using the Sleek face contour powder kit in medium. And for highlighting I’m using the Sleek highlighting palette in shade Prescious metals alongside YSL Touché Éclat. Gives my face a lovely golden shimmer which is perfect for the summer!
Bronzer and Blush:
I’m not a huge fan of Soap and Glory products. However I do love their bronzer Salon powder and Love at first blush.
The salon powder is light enough to wear as my powder base underneath my contour. Which is why I love it so much as I’m not a big user of powder.
The Love at first blush is perfect shades of pink, which looks lovely lightly dusted on my cheek bones after I’ve done my highlighting.
I love my NYX lip liner in shade EVER 828. I can basically wear it with any of my nude lip colours. Currently the 3 lipsticks I wear the most are the Sleek Matte Me in shade Birthday suit, this is more like a lip paint and it dries super quick. Mac lipstick in shade Faux (looks lovely paired with the NYX liner) it makes my lips look lovely and full. And then the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in shade Milkshake. This is super light and It doesn’t dry as quick as the sleek one. I have to use a blotter if I’m in a rush. But it is a lovely colour and I love anything Matte.
I know what you’re thinking. Why does she not have any eye shadows?? Well I do own them, but I don’t wear any. I just don’t like how my eyes look with shadow on. More than likely because I’m doing it wrong. But I’ve watched many a tutorial and just can’t seem to get it!!
So currently all I use is the Maybelline The Rocket mascara in black. This has been my favourite mascara so far (I change every time I run out). Gives lots of volume but without making them look clumpy!
I get my eyebrows waxed and tinted every 4 weeks, sometimes longer because I struggle to find the time when Sean’s off work. But you know what tinting is like, it doesn’t last that long and I still like to add a bit more shape and colour. I stumbled across this product in the airport on the way to Ibiza. I grabbed it because it was cheap and they didn’t have the NYX one that i had wanted. It was £2.99. And I absolutely love it! It comes with a double ended brush and a clear gel mascara to set it. I couldn’t ask for anything more really. It has black, medium brown and then a lighter one for blondes. It goes on really easy and shapes them beautifully.
Thanks for reading and comment below if you have any favourites that you always wear? Or if you use any of these products and what you think of them.
