I was recently asked to share what makeup I use on my YouTube channel so here they are!
Like I said in the video I made, when it comes to makeup I pretty much stick with the same items once I've found a goodie. If you have been reading my blog from the start, one of my very first posts was on my 5 Makeup Essentials , a year and a bit on and the products are pretty much still the same! I think us girls find it so hard to find the perfect foundation or concealer, the basic items we have in our makeup kits. There are so many colour choices and formulas out there, and once you've found that perfect brand and shade you want to stick with it because it has took you so long to find one that does the job.
For Foundation I have been using MUFE HD Foundation in #155 for the longest time! It gives you that camera-ready look and I love the coverage it gives. Only downside is the price $$. It is really expensive to buy here (in Australia) so occasionally for day makeup I will switch it up and use the Rimmel Renew & Lift Foundation in #300 Sand.
Concealers: Again, I have been using these three for years. If I need extra coverage I will apply the MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NW30 and then the YSL Touche Eclat #2 on top which just really brightens that eye area. For blemishes I will dab the MAC Studio Finish Concealer (cannot tell you the # because it has rubbed off!! Sorry!) around the blemish and never directly on it. By doing this it kinda camouflages the shadow.
Powder: I recently started using this when my MUFE HD Microfinish Powder ran out. It was new on the market and so I decided to try it. I bought it in #220 and so far so good however I much prefer my MUFE HD one, I can't wait till it arrives in the post!
Mascara: Without a doubt, Covergirl Lash Blast! Best cheapie mascara on the market. I have tried numerous expensive/designer type mascaras and nothing compares. It does exactly what it is designed to do and never clumps!
Eyelash Curler: I've had this Shu Uemuru curler for years and again it does exactly what it is meant to do. I haven't really tried many other ones so I couldn't give you an exact review on the quality. All I can say is that it has lasted for many years!
Bronzer: Smashbox in Suntan Matte. AMAZING! Perfect matte bronzer without all the shimmery bits!
Blush: I have been using Nars in Deep Throat for ages but recently bought the Maybelline Fit Me range of Blush in Medium Pink and it is working great as a combination. I love how the Maybelline one contains none of the shimmer, it's a perfect blush for during the day.
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly. I forgot to mention this product in my video, but I use it as a base for my eyeshadow every day. The colour is the exact same as my skin tone and it really makes my eyeshadow stay on for longer, especially when the hotter months are around!
Liquid Eyeliner: I recently bought this Models Prefer eyeliner after wanting a change from my usual MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. I've always preferred liquid eyeliner as I just find it so much easier to apply, especially when you wing it out at the edges of your eye. This was insanely cheap, and does a very good job. I got it in the blackest of blacks #JetBlack
I hope you all found this interesting! Have a great day and a great start to the week! XO
