I personally love makeup blogs and in particular posts about Beauty or Skincare Essentials so I decided to make my own post! Even though I don’t really ever wear a full face of makeup (I hate the feeling of makeup on my skin and it sometimes makes me breakout) I definitely do have a few ‘holy grail’ products that I use again and again. So I thought I would share them with you guys! Hope you enjoy:
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara – Honestly, I loveeee this mascara and I have to say it is currently my favourite mascara that I own, (closely followed by the clinique mascara). It always gives my eyelashes lots of volume and incredible length. You can get a dramatic effect with only a single coat of mascara which usually never happens! The cream and gel wax formula is amazing and never clumps my lashes together. I actually got this from one of Marzia’s Summer Favourites box as well as some other beauty goodies. (Btw the reason why my hands look so red in the pics is because the lighting is horrible)
Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip in shades Zuma and Doozy – Colourpop’s Ultra Blotted Lips are there perfect balance a matte liquid lipstick and a lip gloss. This lip product gives you the perfect a perfect diffused just-blotted look that feels oh-so soft on your lips. It is also medium coverage and the packaging is super cute. Doozy is a gorgeous warm-rose colour that looks amazing on all skin tones and Zuma is a warm-dusty-pink nude that is perfect for an everyday makeup look.
Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight in shade Hefty Highlight – I literally use this stick like everyday and is not-too-subtle and not-too-blinding. It is easily glides on top of the skin and really accentuates your cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow and other high points on the face. I love stick makeup products mainly because I am not bothered to find a brush to use (lol) and I feel that cream makeup blends into the skin beautifully. This highlighter is superrrrr long wearing and also oil-free which make it even better!
Clinique Bronzer/Highlighter/Eyeshadow in shade Almond Blossom – For some reason I couldn’t find this multi-purpose pressed powder anywhere on the Clinique store. This is multi-purpose, two coloured, shimmery powder is a makeup life saver! I always carry it with me when I go out as it can be used as a gorgeous natural bronzery, subtle highlighter or even an eyeshadow. When I use it as an eyeshadow all I do is pack the golden brown shade into my crease and lid, and then put the light tan shade on the centre of the lid and directly underneath my brow bone and inner corner.
Maybelline Blush Studio Cheeky Glow in shade Creamy Cinnamon – This beautiful and creamy blush is a gorgeous colour and blends like a dream onto the skin. It is a dusty, deep pink colour that gives you a warm glow and adds lots of dimension to your face. The blush also has a slight shimmer which I love. It is pretty pigmented and there is little to no fallout which is often hard to find in drugstore products. I love wearing this with a glossy nude lip for an everyday makeup look.
