Hey everyone, I hope you are well... We are halfway through the year already and I can not believe it. In today's post I will be going through my current favourite must have makeup products.
Nars Natural Radiant Long Wear Foundation
This Foundation has to be my absolute favourite and has been for a long while. This is the newest foundation line. Before this I would use the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I have my foundation in the shade Sryacuse.
I love the liquid formula and it is so easy to apply. It gives full coverage and does not leave your skin looking or feeling oily. It is just right. I came across this foundation watching one of Jayde Pierce's Youtube videos and I thought to myself I have to try it.
You can get their products from the Nars website or you can purchase them from Selfridges, House of fraser, feel unique, ASOS and even john lewis. I honestly have nothing bad to say about this foundation and I personally feel as though it is worth the £35 you pay for it.
I always feel as though when I wear this foundation any spots and blemishes are completely covered and you would never guess I had a spot of two. They are amazing with their shades and accomodate for a wide variety of skin tones.
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Alongside with the Nars foundation I also use their concealer. This is one of my favorite concealers ever. I currently do not use any other concealer apart from this one. My shade is Ginger.
This concealer is good for covering any areas of your face where your foundation is likely to wear of faster and to cover any marks, spots and dark circles you may have. This product can also be found on the Nars Website as well as selfridges, ASOS, House of fraser, feel unique and john lewis.
The item costs £24. I would say in terms of the product the consistency is great. It is long lasting and most definitely covers the problem areas of your skin. However, for the price I would say a disadvantage may be the amount of product could be increased through the way in which the item is packaged.
overall, I love the product and I would highly recommend it to others.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer
This primer by YSL has to be one of the best primers of all time. This is the only primer I will use on my skin. It is very delicate on the skin and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. The best part is it has little gold flakes in it which make your skin glittery how amazing right !!
I use this product before applying my makeup, sometimes i go out just with this on and no other products just because it makes my skin feel like a babies bum with a hint of highlight all over. It's around £29.50 for the product. You can find it on the YSL website, selfridges, feel unique and john lewis.
Even better they have them in other colours such as pink, blue and orange. I would say this little beauty is worth the money and highly encourage you to try it.
Benefits Brow Products
So I had heard a lot of hype about Benefits brow products and how amazing they were from friends and mainly from beauty influencers and thought i would give the products a try.
I purchased the Precisely my brow pencil in the shade 5, the Goof proof brow pencil in shade 5 and the gimmie brow plus in shade 5. If you have dark eyebrows like myself then i would recommend a shade 5. Shade 6 is far too dark.
I would say that the benefit brow products are most definitely worth the hype they get. I tried The Brow pencil, goof proof pencil and the gimme brow plus for a night out and they left my eyebrows looking and feeling amazing. I most definitely recommend this product.Try it and see how amazing it is and how it works for you.
Benefit BADgal Mascara
I saw this product by benefit advertise on their big reveal in the maldives. I thought i would try the product out to see what it was like and if it was worth all the hype especially as they aim to provide gravity defying and volume.
They are first known for lengthening and second for curl with their mascara products. The product is not clumpy or heavy in any kind. The formula features aero-particles which benefit claim are derived from space technology to provide a featherweight feel so lashed so not feel weighed down. The mascara alo contains provitamin B5 to strengthen and thicken your lashes in the long term. In addition to this they claim to provide water-resistant 36 hour wear too.
When I used the product I was fascinated by how long my eyelashes looked. Naturally I have very long eyelashes however, when using the product my eyelashes look even longer almost as though I were wearing false ones. I love the way the mascaras makes my eyelashes feel and how long they make them look. They feel very light with the mascara on also and are not clumpy t all. I personally can not stand a mascara that is clumpy.
This product ticks a lot of boxes for me and I would recommend it . It is definitely part of my beauty must haves.
Morphe 35B Eyeshadow Palette
I used quite a lot of Morphe palettes so I knew this product would live up to expectation. I am a lover of bright colours and always love creating bright looks so this palettes was ideal for me. The colours are bright and full of pigmentation. If you are a over of bright colours and like trying new things then this palette is for you. The colours blend very well together.
This is part of my beauty must haves. Can be used for summery looks as well as special occasions such as parties , weddings if you are going to a themes party. Try it out and let me know what you think.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette
This is one of my favourite palettes. I love Anastasia Beverly Hills and their eyeshadow palettes. When this came out I just had to have it. They have a perfect variety of colours which can be used for daily every day looks. You can also create looks for special occasions. I love the yellows and browns and green colours in the palette. here is a photo of a look i created with this palettes.
This is part of my beauty must haves. The colours are very pigmented. I even use two of them as highlighters for the corner of my eyes when finishing of a eye look. I would recommend this palette.
Fenty Beauty Highlighter Shade Hu$tler Baby
Rihanna has done so well with her fenty beauty line. All of her products are amazing and high quality. Her highlighters are amazing. I have the shade hustler baby. I have to say that the highters from her beauty line are highly pigmented. It's like being stroked from heaven. It leaves your skin glowing depending on wherever you put your highlighters. If you have not purchased anything from the fenty beauty line then i highly recommend you do. Her foundation is good quality for the amund you pay for it. The gloss bomb lip glosses are the best lip glosses I have personally ever come across. If you happen to purchase any product please let me know what you think about them.
