I get asked a lot what my favourite makeup items are. I don’t buy makeup every week but I do have a few favourites for this month:
Foundation:Urban Decay Naked skin-I really like this foundation. It’s a beautiful liquid foundation with light to medium coverage. It’s so easy to blend (I recommend doing it with a damp makeup sponge) and tapping it onto the skin. It feel so weightless (like you’re not even wearing anything) and looks gorgeous! The only downside is that this foundation doesn’t cover pimples or dry skin too well so I’d use a good primer and a concealer before you apply it.
Price : £28.50
Eyeshadow:I am really loving the naked heat palette by urban decay. (yes another Urban Decay Product!) I swore nothing could remove the naked 3 from its top position but it’s a really close call for me. I am in love with the colour “fuego”colour and the warm tones look fantastic. These colours go so well with beige, browns and cream outfits especially, and the pigmentation is incredible.
Price: £39.50 but sometimes Debenhams has extra discount
Lipstick:I think the nyx lipsticks are fantastic value for what they are. I own about four now and gradually adding to the collection. The shade Indian pink is just incredible. It’s a beautiful pinky orange sheer lipstick shade which is just incredible in these summer months.
Blush:I love blushes to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. Ih ave in my collection a blusher which is super cheap and really pigmented. It’s the baked “Loved the best” blush by Makeup Revolution. It is sooo cheap and one that you could bring on holiday/out and about because if you lose it, you won’t be breaking the bank to replace it. I’ve been using revolution for a while now and it’s finally picking up some more hype for it’s affordability.
Eyeliner:I love my black eyeliners and I am so obsessed with lord and berry khol pencil. It is the darkest black eyeliner I have ever owned, it goes onto my waterline really easily without the need to do a tonne 3 layers. It’s really affordable and you buy it in a bunch of places. I got mine from “Sally Beauty”, but it s also available on amazon, Boots, and Birchbox.
Brows:I have some bald patched in my brows (due to a dodgy previous makeup lady “sad face”)and I recently treated myself to the Kat Von D signature precision brow pencil from Debenhams. I got the colour “Walnut” because I have quite dark (almost black) brow hairs and I wanted something that was fine enough to fill in those patches. I’ve only used it a couple of times so far, but I am really liking it so far. I am also very very keen to try the tattoo black eyeliner pen, and also the “Lock it” concealer. At the moment you can get the tenth anniversary range which comes in some cool golden packaging. I’m such a sucker for presentation!
These are my faves, would love to hear what yours are.
