Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara review

I have had this mascara sitting in my drawer for months now and I finally opened it up and started using it. I found this mascara in TK Maxx for £4. Since Covergirl is not available in the UK I was really happy to have found it. I just could not leave it there. So this is the Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara.

The first very noticeable thing is that it has a stiff applicator with little bristles in the end. It is quite hard of a material so I’d say be careful when applying as it can be a little hard on the roots of the lashes. I can feel it scratch it sometimes when I apply too close to the roots.

For the first layer it is quite subtle, but it can definitely be build up. I think it’s good that it can be worn just easy everyday mascara with just a few layers or can be layered up for a more dramatic look.

As the name would suggest it does not clump up, which is a bonus, I am not really a big fan of clumpy lashes and this mascara does a good job of separating my lashes yet still giving them volume and thickness.

I would say it is very black, which is what I like, and also waterproof. I does stay put all day, does not print anywhere around my eye, even when I’m just sweating so much.

For a waterproof mascara I was worried that taking it ott would be hard, but it actually comes off fairly easily. I tried it both with a make up remover and a cotton pad, also with cleansing butter. Both ways remover any traces of mascara.

I will be definitely using this mascara a lot, because I find it is perfect for summery sweaty days when I don’t have to worry about it running down my face.

Hope you liked this review, and let me know if you tried this mascara or any other mascara by Covergirl!

Until next time,

What I’m taking on holiday with me

Currently it is 24 degrees outside which makes me really happy so I thought this would be the best time to write the blog post I have wanted to write about what I’m gonna take on holiday with me. I’m going to visit my home country for two weeks at the end of May. I already know the weather there is presumably gonna be quite hot so I don’t need to take a lot of make up with me cuz they just melt off of my face. However I still like to take some essential make up products to make me look semi okay even when it’s boiling hot outside. So I’m gonna list here all the products that I’m taking on holiday with me…

psx_20180509_1046361065678322.jpg

psx_20180509_1051191989247538.jpg

First one is a brow pencil from Tanya Burr Cosmetics, and it is their Selfie Scuplt in the shade medium. I use this everyday anyway and I feel like if nothing else is done on my face when I do my brows it makes such a difference. So that is something I couldn’t go away without.

I absolutely hate applying foundation to my face when it’s hot outside. It legit just melts form your face within a few hours, leaving you all patchy. Plus just the feeling of chemicals burning into my skin is something I cannot stand. With that said I still like to hide my dark undereyes and red spots if I have any, so I will take a concealer with me. But I absolutely try and use it to the minimum. I will take my trusty MUR concealer that will give me enough coverage and will be long lasting on my skin.

psx_20180509_105241248549835.jpg

The only thing I actually am bothered with is my eyes. I will not apply eyeshadow, again it will melt off, but cannot go without a mascara. I will purchase a big sized Benefit Roller Lash as I have just run out on my mini, and it’s cheaper at the airport to buy. I love this mascara and it will be so pretty on my lashes. With that said I will also take my another essential eye make up product, the Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in black which stays put on my tightline and doesn’t run down under my eyes.

psx_20180509_104740676230748.jpg

psx_20180509_1049331393724828.jpg

When I’m going out in the evening I will put something on my cheeks just to give them a little somethin’ somethin’. I really like to use the cheek illuminators from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I will use Holiday Happiness as a blush and Forever Summer as a highlighter. I think they will be perfect and just enough with my minimalist holiday make up look.

So that is all the make up I will be taking with me. I cannot wait for the two week holiday, to be off from work and I will go through some big changes too which makes me very excited too. Hope you enjoyed this blog post. What are your go to make up bits to take on holiday with you?

Until next time,

April Favourites

I can’t actually remember the last time I did a monthly favourites blog post so I’m excited to share with you what I have been loving in this month. I feel like I have not tried any new product before this month really but I have new make up bits I love and old ones I rediscovered, so let’s get into the blog post…

psx_20180502_1042222036858448.jpg

psx_20180502_1034051195185250.jpg

psx_20180502_103216779400803.jpg

psx_20180502_1033051667177717.jpg

For so long, well all my life possibly, I have been “blessed” with dark undereyes. I doesn’t really matter what cream I put there, they will still be quite dark. I have been using concealers to cover it up, of course, then I saw someone on a YT talking about this product then it hit me, why have I never tried a colour corrector?? So I ordered the Maybelline MasterCamo color correcting pen in pink. I was so surprised how much it cancels out the blue under my eyes. I use concealer after applying this and together they cover up the darkness pretty well. The only thing I’m not really happy with is the twisty applicator… I twist it and have to wait for the product to come out and then later I notice a lot of product coming out, which I still use of course, but you do have to be careful with that. Other than that I’m very happy with this new discovery.

psx_20180502_103800428883902.jpg

psx_20180502_10411270184134.jpg

I don’t really know why I picked up this eyeshadow palette from Superdrug, I mean I have enough nude coloured eyeshadows, but this palette still caught my eyes, and really can you ever have enough nude eyeshadows?? I think no, haha. So this is a palette from Maxfactor with the prettiest shades ever. I like that it has matte and shimmery shadows in it too. I mostly use the mattes one for everyday, also the shimmery shades are very, very shimmery. I think it is good for travelling or going on holiday as you can create really natural looks as well as looks for the evening when you want to go out. Not mad at all that I purchased it.

psx_20180502_1036421079268903.jpg

psx_20180502_1035201242426327.jpg

The next favourite is a product I’m not sure I actually love but yet somehow I keep reaching for it a lot. I got a sample of it in March’s Birchbox and this is the new mascara from Benefit, the BadGal Bang mascara. At first I didn’t really like this mascara, but I can’t deny that it gives big long lashes, I still find it a bit clumpy and I’m still not a big fan of that, but I think it is getting better as it is drying out a little bit. I’m not sure if I would buy it again when this runs out, probably not, but I have to say it is not as bad as I first thought it was. Also I really like how it looks on the bottom lashes.

psx_20180502_1040131324221548.jpg

And lastly I have been loving the Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. (it is a sample size from Birchbox) For so long I have thought it was too dark for my skintone, but it is actually looking really nice when I blend it out. After using a cream contour for so long it was weird to use a powder one and I think powder takes longer for me to blend out. But I have been reaching for this every day this month, really loving the way it shapes my face, and just really enjoyed using it.

So these were all the products I have been loving in the month of April. Have you tried any of these products? What have been your faves this month?

Until next time,

Birchbox March 2018

It is that time of the month again, (no not PMS, haha), the time when my monthly Birchbox was delivered. Sharing all that I’ve got is one of my fave posts to write. This month’s theme is self care. I like the packaging even though it is not my fave one, it is very zen I think. So all the product samples included in this box helps you relax, reduce stress and just look after yourself. Let’s see what I got…

psx_20180308_12371177006777.jpg

psx_20180308_1239081661010380.jpg

psx_20180308_124746322440294.jpg

So the first thing I am probably the most excited about it the new Benefit BADgal BANG mascara, which I almost bought when it launched, but luckily I debated so much that I saw that it will be included in every Birchbox this month. So now the wait is over, and I can finally try this mascara. I applied it earlier when doing my makeup and it does give voluminous and thick lashes. The wand is longer than a mascara wand usually is. It is lightweight on the lashes, it almost feels like I have nothing on there. It is a wet formula and it gets clumpy after a few strokes. Overall I do like this mascara, but I think I prefer the Roller Lash from Benefit just because I am not a fan of clumpy lashes.

 

psx_20180308_124317891379212.jpg

Next thing is a Rituals foaming shower gel. I have received one of their foaming shower gel in a previous Birchbox so I’m excited to try this one too. Hopefully it smells nice. It is infused with cherry blossom and organic rice milk, all supposed to calm your mind and soothe your skin. I think it will be perfect to use in a shower after a long and stressful day.

psx_20180308_12461161526709.jpg

I am also very excited to try something from GLAMGLOW. I see their products all over social media, but I personally have never tried anything from the brand. I got a sample of the SUPERMUD Clearing Mask Treatment, which is essentially a mud mask with activated charcoal and 6 acids. It’s supposed to clear your skin and pores and I like that use can use it as a spot treatment or only on your T-zone. I am lucky enough that I don’t really have spots or blemishes on my skin, but using mud mask usually makes me spotty so I might just try it out on my T-zone and see how it works there.

psx_20180308_1244101446012655.jpg

Something I was really excited to get was an under eye mask for BLAQ. I have been seeing everyone using these, so I have been wanting to give them a try too. Especially since I do have dark under eyes unfortunately, therefore I am curious if these will help  with that. It’s also supposed to get rid of bags and puff and just to make you look well rested. I am all for this!

psx_20180308_124518358366168.jpg

And lastly I have received a Bombshell Blowout Spray from Amika. Not that I am any good at blow-drying my hair, but hopefully spraying this into my hair will make it easier for me. I like the sound of the heat protection it offers too. My hair usually gets flat on the second day so I will be using this to give a bit of volume. Even though I have got thick hair, I have not got a lot of hair so I could always use some extra volume at the top.

psx_20180308_1248531131343329.jpg

That is all I got in this month’s Birchbox. I hope you like this “review” kind of post. What products you liked the most? Do you own or have you ever used any of these products before?

Until next time,

Fave make up bits 2017

First of all I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! I will join to everyone who says ‘ I can’t believe that 2017 is gone and it’s 2018!’ . To be honest it wasn’t my fave year ever, but with blogging I think I was happy with my journey. It was all about experimenting, trying to find out how I can fit into this blogging world. I realised I don’t want to put pressure on myself, I just want to blog because I like to talk about make up and beauty and girly things. And since that is what I like to do I couldn’t miss an opportunity to collect all my fave beauty bits from 2017 and share them with you. These are deffo my fave posts to read at all times, so lets get into it.

psx_20180107_1512071582379531.jpg

psx_20180107_1515221380682731.jpg

I love eye shadows. Next to mascara they are my fave make up items, so it was actually really hard to choose my fave. Not gonna lie I almost always use Tanya Burr Cosmetics eye shadows and I love them. I used this palette ( Enchanted dream ) a lot this last year, the shades are so pretty and pigmented, can create and easy day look or a smokey evening look too. This was definitely my fave eye shadow palette of this last year.

psx_20180107_1519091921817128.jpg

I definitely wanted to include a mascara, but it was soooo hard to choose just one, but nonetheless I managed. When I heard that this Lash Paradise mascara from L’Oreal was supposed to a dupe for the Better than sex mascara from Too Faced, it intrigued me instantly. It gives you full lashes, a bit clumpy, but I don’t really mind. It is not too extreme, so perfect for everyday wear. I wore it everyday for my holiday and I have to say it is the perfect mascara to wear for a no make up makeup look.

psx_20180107_1526221489780943.jpg

I am a huge fan of the Porefessionals primer by Benefit, however it is a bit pricey, so I decided to look for a cheaper option from the drugstore. I have to stay I still prefer the Porefessionals, but this primer ( Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser by Maybelline )  is also really good, and cheaper. It has a clear colour to it, and the similar texture as the Porefessionals and it does the job. Hides my giant pores on my face. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for good drugstore primer.

psx_20180107_1522041632624239.jpg

I don’t own a lot of blushes. I never have. Just always had a few to choose from and I just never ventured into trying out lots of blushes. That hasn’t really changed, and for most of last year I was using this NYX blush. It is in the shade baby blush, and you need the tiniest amount as it is very pigmented, but looks beautiful on the skin. I prefer pink blushes anyway and this complements my pale skin perfectly.

psx_20180107_1523311572890649.jpg

 

psx_20180107_151708595379178.jpg

Another fave product for the cheeks is this Cheek Illuminator by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. Also has a pink undertone, creamy formula, which works well even on top of powder. It is not glittery and gives you a nice and pretty shine.

psx_20180107_1521021253887455.jpg

psx_20180107_1513501220368239.jpg

Lastly it is lip product, cuz I do own many many lippies. Again was hard to choose, but I chose my fave shade from the Matte me up lip paints from BarryM. This was their 35th anniversary limited edition lipkit and I’m happy I got it. It is a perfect dark pink shade lip. Wears easy on the lips, dries down to matte and lasts for hours.

So these were my fave finds for 2017, hope you liked reading about it and don’t forget to share your fave bits in the comments!

Have a nice day!

In love with the Selfie Story collection

I got a very exciting package in the post today and it was a delivery from Feelunique. I know it contained the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection, the Selfie Story collection and I am just so excited to share my opinion on it with you.

I usually don’t go anywhere without wearing mascara and a liner, but at least a mascara. So I was just very happy that two of my absolute fave make up items were in this collection and I finally get to try them out.

PSX_20171003_115612

PSX_20171003_115445

But let’s talk about the brow pencil, Selfie Scuplt, first as I am sort of typing this blog post as I’m doing my make up so I can get my true first impression written down.

I actually really like the shape of the brow pencil. I chose the shade medium and it is a perfect fit for my browns. I like the rectangular shape and it is easy to use and really shapes your brows well. I like how I can move it around as I’m putting it on and getting different angles of the product. Just seems to be working perfectly.

PSX_20171003_115335

 

PSX_20171003_115154

The next item I’m trying out is the Selfie Flick eyeliner. I’ve watched Tanya’s videos when she was talking about this new products and when I saw her using the eyeliner I got very intrigued. I can say now already it is so flippin’ good! She said it is easier to apply eyeliner with this one and I have to say she was right. I have been applying liqued eyeliner to my eyes for years and years so I have no trouble with it, but even I can tell that with this one it’s just way easier. I like how thin the brush is because sometimes I really just want a thin line to be there in my lashline. Also thanks to the thin brush doing a winged look is so easy. I usually like felt tip liner for a winged look but this one works even better for that purpose. On top of that it is really black, which sometimes can be an issue with eyeliners. I think I have found my new fave eyeliner overall, if you haven’t guessed that already.

PSX_20171003_115058

So last but by no means least is my new love the Selfie Lash. It is the prettiest mascara I have tried in a long time. It gives long voluminous lashes. It doesn’t clamp up at all and I really like the shape of the wand and the bristles, I feel like they coat every single eyelash. I think it gives very nice big lashes but not too overdramatic ones, but natural ones. Which I think look better. The formula is wet but not too wet that you can’t really use it and you need to wait for it to dry out a little as with some other mascaras. It feels like the perfect consistency and it works perfectly for the first time. I am really really impressed amd also so so happy with it.

So yeah as the title suggests I am in love with this collection. Even though I just put my make up on I can’t wait to remove it and apply it again tomorrow. I do honestly think these products stand out amongst all the other drugstore brands and I appreciate all the effort and work Tanya and her team put into these products because the results are just fab. Congrats Tanya Burr Cosmetics! I can’t say enough good things!

And lastly here’s a picture of me with my ready make up having used all the goodies mentioned above.

My holiday make up

Summer is the time to be a bit lighter with your make up anyway, but when you’re visiting a hot country then the last thing you want basically is to put make up on your face. Some people do it. I can’t stand feeling like the sun is burning all the makeup I have on my face into my skin. I’m pretty sure it is not very healthy either. However there still a little bit of make up that you can do that will make you feel more put together and pretty on your holidays!

PSX_20170813_185030

So this is the make up I wear during the day. For the evening especially if I go out I do wear a bit of make up but not too much. Bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner and of course some eyeshadows. The one I definitely gonna take on holiday is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics my paradise eye palette. With eyeliner make sure you use a waterproof one just in case you get hot and start sweating. 😉

PSX_20170813_185456

Brows

The one thing I cannot leave anywhere without is filling in my eyebrows. They make me feel put together and my face just looks better when my brows are done even if I have no make up on. The best thing would be to get it tinted before you go on holiday so you don’t have to bother with it, but if you prefer to do it on your own then just go for it. I’d definitely suggest using a gel product to set your brows after you filled them in to make sure they stay put all day and won’t be running down your face.

PSX_20170813_185354

Concealer

Now I know I said I can’t stand make up burning into your face, but another thing I can’t stand is dark cirlces under my eyes. So I use the tiniest amount of concealer to try and hide them. I’m one of those persons that just has dark undereyes, no matter how much I sleep or the eye creams I use they’re still gonna be a bit dark. Of course if your undereyes are not dark, you can just totally miss this step.

PSX_20170813_185554

Mascara

Back in my homecountry it is above 30 degrees pretty much all summer, so the only make up item I used to wear was mascara. This is the perfect way to get a no make up make up look. I like to have really bold lashes anyway so when on holiday and that’s the only thing I put on my eyes I don’t hold back, haha. One tip though, use a waterproof eyeliner on the tightline to make your lashes appear fuller.

PSX_20170813_184845

PSX_20170813_184653

Lips

Holidays to me scream bright vivid lips. It’s the one time where you can get away with using the brigthest and boldest colour. All the bright pink colours are made for holidays.

So this is all the make up I use on holidays. I only put suncream on my face after my skincare routine and I feel like my skin is always grateful for its little make up free holiday too!

What make up do you like to wear on your holidays? xx

Current Beauty Obssesions

I haven’t been doing monthly faves for a while so I decided to pick all my fave beauty products at the moment and share them with you!

PSX_20170705_103852

PSX_20170705_104244

Soap and Glory shower and body lotion products

First of all I’d like to write about some of the new shower and body products that I have been loving in the past month.  I have never tried any Soap and Glory products before since living here in the UK for three years but I have heard good things about them so I decided to give them a try and I was not disappointed at all. Both the Orangegasm and the Clean On Me shower gels are really good. I use the Orangegasm when I feel I need to be energized for the day. With the Clean on me shower gel I like the fact that it has built in  body lotion as well and it really leaves my skin feel soft and smooth after the shower.

The other two discoveries are actually almost the same product just in different forms. One is the Daily Smooth body butter and the other one is The Smoothie deep moisturizing milk. Both have the same scents to them but obviously the butter has a thicker texture than the milk. Even though I find the milk to be thicker that just a normal body lotion. I find them to do a great job at moisturizing my body all day and I’ve just been really enjoying using them in these past months.

PSX_20170705_104525

Burberry Weekend perfume

I have had my eyes on this perfume for more then a year now and now I finally decided to treat myself and get it. I’m not really good at describing scents really so I’m just gonna put the information here that I fund on the Burberry website so you can get an idea what it smells like. I would highly recommend though to pop into boots and give it a little sniff if you can.

A sheer fragrance with top notes of tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant. Delicate floral heart notes of wild rose, peach blossom, iris and hyacinth, invigorated by a subtle splash of nectarine. The low notes of cedar wood and sandalwood add depth for a relaxed and fresh scent

PSX_20170705_104804

YSL The Shock mascara

This is one of my newly found mascaras and I’m in love with it. It gives you sooo much volume and just basically feels like it doubles the sizes of your lashes. It has an hour shape kind of wand with medium bristles. It does smell pretty nice for a mascara too, almost like a hand cream. It can easily clamp up though so be careful not to apply too many coats. But overall it is a really good high end mascara and I feel like it’s definitely worth the money.

PSX_20170705_105930

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

After using creamy foundations for years I wanted to try out a bit more watery consistency of a foundation. I rarely try new foundations as I like to stick with the ones I know I like and work great for my skin, but I’m lucky I did find try out this one. It comes in a lot of shades so it’s guaranteed that you’ll find a match for your skin colour. I am shade 102. I really like the feel of it on the skin, it is thinner on the skin and you can’t feel it on the skin either which is what I prefer with foundations. It lasts good on my all day does not cake up, overall it is a good drugstore foundation.

PSX_20170705_105708

 

PSX_20170705_105523

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara blue and black

As I said I don’t really like to change up my foundation, however I’m always on the lookout for new mascaras and I really like trying out new ones. I have been really unlucky finding not so great mascaras in the past so I was sooo happy with this one as it did it’s job and gave me fab lashes. It is a more drier formula so probably easier to apply. It gives you really curly and lifted lashes. Doesn’t really clamp up thanks to its dry formula. A really good and affordable drugstore mascara and the best thing abut is that it comes in colours too. So naturally I had to purchase a blue mascara as well. They also sell purple and turquoise coloured ones as well. Can’t wait to try those ones out too.

PSX_20170705_110355

Max Factor matte lipstick

With my mascara collection growing I don’t particularly mind if my lipstick collection grows with it too. They are my two fave make up items. I have been loving matte lippies as they are really on trend now , and every brand is releasing their own matte lipstick or liquid matte lipsticks lip paint, name it, a brand has already come up with it. I usually prefer a liquid form that dries down but I saw these lipstick in a Youtube video and I just had to get one of them when I was in Superdrug. I chose the shade Rose which is this really lovely pink shade that I also used in my spring summer make up look tutorial as well. It is a matte lipstick but it is not drying on the lips and actually it stays on for quite a while. I will definitely be purchasing more shades of this lipstick as it is slowly becoming my fave lipstick and the one I reach for the most.

I hope you liked reading this blog post! What are your current beauty obsessions?

Hope you’re having a lovely day/night! xx

Easy spring/summer make up

PSX_20170512_105829

With the sun being more and more out, and the weather getting warmer it truly feels like it is finally spring and summer is not that far away. Which means you can pop a bit more colour in your make up routine and I wanted to show you a pretty easy and simple make up routine that is light and easy.

After cleaning my face, I use the Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer, which has been a favourite of mine for the last couple of weeks. Then I apply primer first. I use Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it does a great job at hiding my giant pores on my cheeks. For foundation I have been using a more watery foundation, and that is the Maybelline fit me foundation in the shade 102. It is very easy to apply blends in very easy, and because it is more watery consistency then creamy, you can barely feel it on your face. Which is perfect for when it gets warmer outside.

PSX_20170512_110113

For under my eyes, to cover up my dark circles, I have been using the Wonder Pencil by NYX. It  does a great job at hiding those dark circle and makes me look more awake and healthy. On top of this I use everyone’s fave concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection one, in the shade fair. To finish off the base off my face make up , I’m setting everything with the Rimmel stay matte powder.

For my brows, I use the Natural collection eye shadow in crushed walnut. To start off my eye make up, I apply primer first. I use the NYX proof it! eye shadow primer. For my eye lids I’m using the Make Up Revolution palette, and taking the light brown shade for my crease and the lightest shade to cover all my lid. Since I want to go easy on the eye I’m only putting black eye pencil on my upper waterline. To finish off the eyes I use the new L’Oreal baby roll mascara which has become my new fave mascara. Gives such curls!

PSX_20170512_110537

PSX_20170512_110713

Now I go back to finish my base make up and for contour I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, and for blush and highlight I use the Tanya Burr Cosmetics cheek palette in rosy flush.

For my lips I’m also using a new discovery, and that is the Maxfactor matte lipstick in the shade rose. Such a pretty pink shade for this time of the year.

So this is my easy spring/summer make up look. Hope you liked it and recreate it too!

My five top beauty products

One of my favourite blog post to read is when people write about their top fave products. When people talk about their absolute fave products I know they have been using them for a long time and they are definitely working. I find myself usually going and giving a try to those products as well, as I like trying out new stuff. So it seemed like a very good idea for my first collaboration with Amy from Everydayamyblog, to share our top five beauty products with you. Here’s the link to her top five beauty faves :

  1. Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette

I’d say if you’re only going to invest one high end eye shadow palette, go for this one. It has every shade you could possibly need from matte shades and shimmery ones. I like natural shades for my eyes most of the time, and you really can’t go wrong with the variety you have in this palette. Perfect for everyday use to a really out there make up look. Not to mention it smells like chocolate which is the biggest bonus to it. (I mean whoever came up with the idea of scented make up was a genius)

  1. Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Lipstick

Again, if you’re looking for a high end lippie and you’re not quite sure which one to go for first, and you happen to love matte lipstick, then this one is definitely the one to choose. I absolutely adore this melted lipstick. The formulation is so light yet the pigmentation is on point. It glides on like a lip gloss and dries downs to a matte lipstick. I don’t find it drying on my lips, and it lasts up to several hours. There are a lot of colours to choose from. I have the shade Queen B, but I really can’t wait to try out some new ones, like Cool Girl or Child star.

  1. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

As I mentioned in one of my previous blog post, I have tried a lot of mascaras from the drugstore and it’s fair to say that this one is the best one I have ever tried. It gives volume and length, both which are very important when it comes to mascaras. It never clumps up on my lashes, and I do like to use a lot of coats, just to get the full effect ;).

  1. Benefit High Beam highlighter

The one make up product I can’t imagine not having in my collection is a good highlighter. Before I found this gem, I used to use powder highlighter, which I still do, but this product is the most beautiful highlighter I have ever seen. It is a liquid highlighter, it has a slight pink undertone, which I love and it is also cool toned, which I find suits better my pale skin. Very easy to blend, I usually use my fingers to pat it onto my cheekbones. I find it last for a really long time and gives your make up a really nice and polished finish.

  1. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed powder

My last top beauty fave is this powder. I usually don’t really venture out from base make up too much when I have found something that’s working for me so well. So I have been using this product for years basically, and it just works for me perfectly. It’s not too powdery, keeps my make up matte almost all day and doesn’t make my make up look cakey. I use the shade transparent, as I don’t want more colour just something to hold my foundation in place.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and make sure you head over to Amy’s blog to read about her beauty faves.
