M A K E U P - Essentials and Wish List!
So I have a slight obsession with watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, you could say it is a hobby of mine haha! I love finding out about the latest products and cool makeup tips get me giddy, not gonna lie.
Well these are all products I either have in my makeup bag or I have got my eye on!
*COUGH COUGH* ... Debra & Katie you now know what you can get me for christmas ! x
I did have this in my makeup bag but it's just finished.. boo hoo :(
This is probably the best bronzer I have come across, it makes me glow and look amazingly tanned so it's a win for me!
- AMBER DIAMOND HIGHLIGHTER
Unfortunately this isn't in my makeup bag... yet.. ;)
I have seen this highlighter in quite a lot of YouTube tutorials, I have been looking for a perfect highlighter for a while now. When contouring, highlighters play a vital part in it as it immediately highlights the cheekbones, I also like to apply a highlighter under the brow.
So hopefully this lovely highlighter will be in my makeup bag soon..
MATCH PERFECTION FOUNDATION
This is the current foundation I have been using and I can honestly say that it really is what it says it is..
It is actually perfect match to my skin and makes me feel like a spicy babe.
- RUBY WOO
I think that this is one of the best red lipsticks that I have come across, I have heard that MAC's 'Russian Red' is a better red so I need to have a looook at that one. I love Ruby Woo as it is very very red, it is not too dark or bright just right ( HEY HEY DID YOU SEE THAT RHYME!) but yeah.. the only downfall about the Ruby Woo for me is that it is too matte for me, so it's a bit dry on the lips.
This is a big want of mine, me and the girls have been loving dark lipsticks recently and this one looks pretty great. Perfect for a night out or it just dresses up any simple outfit.
- STROBE CREAM
The MAC Strobe Cream is one of my essentials as I use it everyday, I needed something to brighten my skin and the woman in MAC showed me this. You can wear it by itself if you don't want to use foundation as it immediately brightens your face. I love how it gives you a glow and makes your skin look alive. I wear this either under my foundation or sometimes on top if I use it as a highlighter.
- GLAM EYES EYESHADOW KIT
This is another essential in my makeup bag, I use this for either a night eye look but mostly I use the brown eyeshadow to fill in my brows and the lightest colour to just highlight underneath my arch.
- FACE CONTOUR KIT
I only recently found out about this when I saw it in Debra & Roxanne's makeup bags and then realised how great it is. It comes with a darker colour to contour your cheeks and then a highlighter. It works wonders and it's a decent price for only £6.49 BARGAIN MATE!
- NAKED 2 EYE PALETTE
I have had my eye on this bad boy palette for a while and it is probably number one on my wish list. I love using golds and browns when doing my eye makeup and this palette looks like it has everything I need to look like a golden godess!
- LIP PERFECTER
The best thing in my makeup bag! It is a lip balm and lip gloss in one, I love how it is not sticky at all and it hydrates the lips. My lips feel luxurious whenever I have this on. You can wear it daytime and nighttime. It also comes in three different natural shades. It is pretty expensive for £16 but SO worth it.
- TOUCHE ECLAT CONCEALER
- TOUCHE ECLAT CONCEALER
Best concealer around I'd say, it will cover those nasty bags I have when I'm hungover and It will hide those stray hairs on my brows when they need threading haha! This concealer is a god but wait for it... I don't even own it! I literally rinse my mum's one but I do definitely need to invest. It just hurts a little as it is £25 and as a student that is my weekly food shop!
That is the end of my makeup essentials and wish list!
Thank you for reading & let me know if you want me to do more makeup posts if i'm not boring you or if you want Katie or Debra to do some makeup posts!
