Hey guys, I thought I would share with you some of my current beauty favourites. I have been using some of this stuff for a while now and some are definitely my ‘go to’ item. I also have a few new items that I haven’t been trying out for long, but have fallen in love with!
So firstly, one that Ive been using for a while is the Anastasia Modern Renaissance pallet. The colours in this are amazing and are super bendable! I normally use the colour ‘Tempera’ to go underneath the brow and on my cupids bow to highlight. I also use ‘Red ochre’ to blend into the cut crease. As these colours are super pigmented I suggest using lightly, and build up for your desired look!
Another product that I have been using for ages is the MAC prep and prime fix plus. This product I normally use as a base (after I’ve moisturised) and as a setting spray once my makeup is complete. This makes my makeup stay in place all day and rehydrates the skin to prevent those pesky patchy and cakey looks!
Some new products I have been using recently are from NYX. I do have a large quantity of their lipsticks and lip glosses, so wanted to see what else they had to offer. For christmas I got given a set which so far I’ve been using the NYX HD studio Eye shadow base. I have never really tried out eyeshadow bases before, so wouldn’t know how this one compares to others, but it has been keeping my eyeshadow perfect for hours. Its quite a creamy consistency, so when I apply the eyeshadow on it blends well.
As well as this, I have also been using the NYX HD studio Correcting Concealer. This is a nice liquid concealer that covers up any imperfections and dark circles under the eyes. As I picked up a very light shade, I do use this to slightly contour my face – ontop of my foundation. I bake this to prevent creasing. Once baked this concealer stays on stays looking matte!
So I was looking around in Primark recently, to which they have definitely updated their makeup and beauty range! I have used some small Primark lipsticks in the past and have always found they are too a good standard. I was looking around anyway for some more setting powder (to bake away those creases) and stumbled on this in Primark. I wanted to try out the Banana powder – as I’ve always gone for the white or translucent kind. I can safely say that I am surprised by how good it has worked on my face! If your looking for a bargain setting powder to try out, then you’ve found one 😉
Lastly, Another christmas gift – as Ive also wanted to try this out for a while – is Soap and Glorys – Pillow Plump XXL. I wanted my lips to look more fuller without the pain and money of lip fillers. Although this won’t give you a huge plump, it gives of a slight tingle and creates a more defined pout. I use this with a slightly darker nude lip liner.
My go to perfume these past few months have been Yves saint lauren- Mon Paris.
