I’ve been asked a lot on social media of late about what makeup i use and if i have any recommendations. It just so happens that i do. I’ve been using these same 10 items on constant. Sometimes i use all the items for a full face, sometimes just a couple of them to even things out or to make me feel a little better.
The feeling of when you’re makeup is on point really does make for a good mood.
Happy face, happy me.
I wear a lot less makeup in summer, i ditch the foundation completely and choose to even out my skin with light products and just dabs of concealer.
I also go eye-makeup free a lot because i’m honestly too lazy to take it off some nights so don’t bother with it, and also i kinda feel it makes me look a little more fresh faced, which in summer i kinda like.
I think a couple of key items are bronzer and highlight, they are definitely a must for me. And instead of favouring my usual matte finish i am tending towards glowy a bit more and really enjoying it!
This really is a marvel of a product. I had a free sample of it from Harvey Nichols and i will be most definitely purchasing a full size. This gives a wonderful glow from within type look to the skin, something i most definitely lack. On those days (which i give you , is most) when my skin looks blotchy, tired and a bit sad, this is instant pep in a bottle.
2. -W7 Porefection–
As an oily skinned girl enlarged pores are all part and parcel of my skin texture. Its not nice or pretty, but possibly something i notice more than others, but its something i’m not keen on none the less. A simple blur effect with this brilliant product makes my skin much more pore-normal and gives my skin a brilliant base to apply the next part of my makeup.
I will often mix this with my concealer also
The one, the only, the best. My concealer of choice for years and it is just really good. It conceals and does what it says on the tin.
I have tried every eyebrow product under the sun and never fall head over heels forever with one, however, the Eyelure is the best for me at the moment, it has lasting power, good pigment and applies smoothly.
One of my best buys, i’m on my second Tarte palette and i adore it. The pigmentation of shades is second to none, the blush is just the perfect rose flushed cheek shade for me and it also has wearable eyeshadows all of which i wear, which is a rarity with a palette
6. –W7 Lastastic mascara–
The main thing im asked on IG and emails is what mascara do i use. I have tried SO many mascaras over the years from high end chanel and lancome to maybelline and Rimmel, every brand i can think of i have tried and this W7 mascara is the absolute best. It doesnt crumble, is true black, you can layer it and build it or leave it to one sweep and still have a good cover of mascara on your lashes. It lengthens and gives volume.The wand is a good size to capture all lashes and it doesn’t smudge at all on me. Amazing product that carries a tiny price tag. I’m on my 3 bottle of it and will continue to buy it too.
Truest black this is a great eye liner, a nice nib for a fine or fat line and it lasts all day without smudges.
Subtle pinky light highlighter thats fool proff to apply, just draw on like witha giant sparkly crayon and then buff out a bit with fingers or a beauty sponge
9. –W7 Honolulu Bronzer–
This is extremely similar to a very well known bronzer (cough hoola cough) in fact i don’t see any difference apart from the much much smaller price tag. It works brilliantly for giving a summery tan look.
10. –Barry M Matte Lip or W7 Mega Matte-
My lipstick has to be matte, in winter i favour a good red, but in summer i tend to go a bit lighter. I’m enjoying the ‘your lips but better’ type shades
Do you experiment with makeup or do you like to stick to some tried and tested favourites?
