MONTHLY MAKEUP FAVOURITES


I've been continually reaching for the same products in my makeup bag yet not shown them in any full roundup so heres a collection of some of my absolute gems at the moment!

The porefessional, as you know, every month of every year is my favourite primer, will keep repurchasing until my dying days...or if it becomes discontinued. Its just the perfect primer, you've heard me talk about this far too many times but if you want a product to make your makeup last all day and give a great base for application of all other products, this is the one!

I added a new foundation to my collection last month and Estee Lauder Double Wear in Ecru is my newest love. A real winner for a full coverage foundation out of the ones I've tried so far, and covers all blemishes. My skin is in good condition at the moment luckily so this sits perfectly too. Not drying, not cakey just perfect.

I am very low on it, but my Benefit Boi-ing Concealer in 01 is a beautiful concealer for under the eyes, yet I'm running low! I will definitely buy the full size at some point as its just a wonderful concealer.

For cheeks I ALWAYS turn to Hoola for contour and bronzing, this is just a beautiful bronzer. So creamy to apply which makes no sense to say for a powder but is just so smooth and blendable. I apply Sleek Pink Lemonades blush by three palette and use the Pink Mint (the coral shade) on my cheeks, this is a very similar colour to Rose Gold by Sleek or Orgasm by Nars. The contoured and sculpted look it gives my cheeks is beautiful, love this combination at the moment.

I set all foundation with my MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural, this is a really lightweight powder which is great for such a heavy foundation, it just takes the shine off slightly but leaves a silky finish, a real star for the warmer weather.

I've found a little eye look that works so well in a rush, I use a blending blush and use my bronzer or contour colour in my eye lid crease then apply the Me Me Me dew pot over the lid, its a shimmery champagne colour yet this could work with any cream shadow, the look is effortless and sculpted yet beautiful. I finish it with a flick of Inglot Eyeliner in 77 if time and this just completes the look.

Lastly, I fell in love with my old friend MAC Viva Glam Gaga lipstick, this pink was the first mac lipstick I ever bought and just works with these products. A firm favourite.
