I know there are a LOT of these posts out there but I really wanted to share with you all my favourite products from my daily make up routine. I do use a lot of different products on a full face day so I won’t go through everything but I have recently found a selection of products that just work for me. I will be doing a video for this with all the products I use at some point in the near future but for now lets just stick with the faves… Above is my everyday face and below are a few products that I just can’t go without!
Favourite Base Products:
1 – Benefit POREfessional primer. This stuff has been my holy grail product for a few years now, its a real game changer! It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking smooth which is perfect for a matte primer.
2 – NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I was recently introduced to this foundation by one of my favourite people, Louise, and she has to me completely hooked on this stuff! Its a matte foundation and it has such a beautiful finish. It has quite a watery consistency but its high coverage and really pigmented so it feels good on the skin and covers up imperfections really well even before concealer!
3 – L.A. Girl Pro Concealer. I’d seen this around for a while before finally deciding to give it a go myself. I’ve never really been one for cream contouring until now. This product is the perfect contour concealer, it blends really nicely and isn’t too much of a warm toned brown so it doesn’t go orange. Its also super cheap to buy from amazon and its lasting me ages so really worth a try.
4 – NARS Laguna Bronzer. This is another product that Louise has recently introduced me too and once again, I’m completely obsessed! This bronzer is the perfect shade for my skin and gives me a healthy bit of colour. Its a cool toned brown so also works really well as a contour shade for my lazy day make up routines. Its quite pigmented compared to a few other bronzers I’ve used recently so its lasting me a long time and lasts all day on your face too.
Thos are my four base favourites, I usually mix up my highlighting concealers, translucent powders and I don’t always wear blush so i left those ones out! On to the brows, eyes and lips!
Favourite Brow, Eyes & Lip Products:
1 – Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. This is a new product in my make up bag and this one is only a tester which is why its tiny. Goof Proof is perfect for uneven or sparse brows because the pencil is super soft and angled so you can create the illusion of more brow hairs with the right strokes. The packaging is also really pretty which is always a plus?!
2 – Benefit Ready, Set, Brow! Setting Gel. I’ll be real, this stuff has saved my life. My brows can get a bit all over the place and messy if they’re not set so this stuff is the perfect solution to tame them. It’s a clear get and is quick drying which is helpful when I’m in a rush (almost always). I also like to use this when I don’t fill in my brows, just to keep their shape and to avoid them going all crazy.
3 – Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette. For an every day palette, every single colour in this mini set is just perfection! It has a brow highlight shade, a lovely light base, a perfect crease shade and 2 darker shades for more vampy days. It also has a good brow shade if you’re into that! I used “Primal” from this palette on my brows for a while and loved it. Its also the perfect travel size kit, Im constantly travelling around at the moment so is nice to have something that covers every colour I need for every day and also fits in my travel make up bag.
4 – Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. Now this is an oldie but a goodie. I use this every single time before applying lipstick because it exfoliates my lips and moisturised them, making the application smooth and easy. This product is especially good before matte lip products which I wear a lot of. I rediscovered this a while ago and have used it nearly every day since. It also tastes unreal!
5 – NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama. Im loving dark matte nude lipsticks at the moment and this is by far my favourite. I have a slightly lighter one which is more of an everyday looking colour but Bahama is slightly more vampy looking and I’m really into it! Its quite a dark, cool nude but it looks beautiful on and lasts all day. The formula is really nice too, it isn’t super drying and feels really soft on the lips. If you can get your hands on any of the Velvet Matte collection then do try some out!
So those are all of my current everyday make up favourites, I hope you enjoyed having a little read. Let me know if you try any of them out and love them like I do! What are some of your holy grail products? I’d love to hear from you all!
Until next time my loves
