I want you to raise your hand if you have more makeup than you really need *waves hand in the air*. Us beauty addicts all have this weird obsession with buying more and more makeup, and let’s be honest, who actually uses everything in their makeup stash? Not me. I wouldn’t say I have an enormous makeup collection, but I definitely have more, a lot more, than I need. But you see, the good thing with having too much makeup is that you can tell what products you really love, because in the middle of all the amazing things you own, there are a couple of products you always reach for. It’s not everyday that I wear makeup, but if I’m ever wearing anything on my face, I can guarantee you that these following products have been used.
I like starting with my eyes so the first thing I use when putting on my makeup is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creme De Nude. It’s the perfect base for any eyeshadow look. It stops my eyeshadow from creasing and helps it stay on longer. Some days when I don’t feel like wearing makeup but my eyelids are looking a little red, I’ll dab a bit of this on to even out any discolouration. After priming my eyelids, I move on to my crease. Makeup Geek eyeshadows are beyond incredible, if you haven’t tried any, trust me, you’re missing out. Everyday without fail I use Peach Smoothie and Creme Brûlée, they’re the perfect transition shades and help any darker crease colours blend out like butter. I’m also a huge fan of Cocoa Bear, but it leans more towards the red side and that doesn’t always compliment every makeup look.
I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this on here before, but I have massive under eye bags, I inherited them from my mum, cheers mum. Although I must say that they’ve become less noticeable over the years, they were a lot worse when I was a teenager but it’s still something I feel very self conscious about. Colour correcting has become a huge thing lately, and thank goodness for that! I discovered the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in the shade Emerge thanks to the beautiful Kaushal and wow does it make a difference! It’s an orange/salmon shade that completely erases any darkness underneath the eyes. I couldn’t recommend it more, in fact if you’re planning on buying anything I mention in this post, this should be it. I’ve tried the Becca colour corrector and it doesn’t even come close.
After applying my foundation and concealer I always like to set using the Soap & Glory Kick Ass powder. I’ve dedicated a whole post to it here if you want more information, but it’s basically perfect skin in powder form. It gets rid of any shine, prevents creasing and pretty much makes you look flawless in pictures. Last but not least I move on to my brows and I’ve been completely obsessed with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the shade Taupe. Initially I thought this would be too light on my brows, but it gives them a natural look, not too orange or brown, it’s quite ashy which I love. The cream sets the brow hairs into place so I don’t even need to use a setting gel. Very impressed.
