Beauty / My Faves

My make up collection.



So like most girls I have mountains of make up & obviously I only use around 10% of said make up – Does anyone else do this? I have a huge carry case full of the stuff and I really should have a clear out because its just taking up valuable shoe room!

I don’t really have lots of time to experiment and have never really mastered the art of the winged liner or contouring so I think my collection is pretty basic. I am addicted to MAC & New CID make up & have recently developed a love for MAC lipsticks.

On that note below is a list of my trusty faves that I use for my everyday look….


Where it all begins

Speed Plump all day super moisture marvel – Soap and Glory Buy here.
I love the smell of this product & the way it feels on my skin. It’s light & doesn’t leave me feeling greasy.

I-Prime foundation primer – New CID Buy here
This really helps my foundation stay in place and isn’t to heavy.


The base

Rimmel Wake me up foundation in soft beige buy here.
This foundation is nice an light and spreads really well. It gives me a luminous look and brightens my skin.

Mac studio sculpt foundation in nc20 buy here.
I love this foundation if I am going out for the evening as it gives a flawless coverage. Its a little thick for everyday make up but looks amazing and stays put all night.

Mac pro longwear concealer in nc20 buy here.
This is the best concealer I have come across so far. It is a medium to full coverage and hides a multitude of sins.

Mac prep & prime highlighter in light boost buy here.
This can be used over make up as a highlighter or under makeup to brighten & prime.

The powders

I dust this over my foundation to set it for the day.

I love the rose cheek look. So pretty and stays put all day.

YSL Faux Cils Mascara in black Buy here.
his is my favourite mascara ever & I am forever restocking.

Rimmel Khol eye liner in black Buy here.

his is a great mascara but I find it runs a little so I use this as a base and usually apply a coat of another mascara over the top.
