I know this tag is EVERYWHERE right now but my babe Laura told me she was doing it and I think it’s such a good way to see other peoples staple products and get an idea of what you want to try next! Make sure you go and check hers out!
I’m going to take you through all of my ride or die make up products, I’ve really tried to limit myself to one product per part of face to keep it short but it was basically impossible for some things! Lets get straight to it:
Estes Lauder Doubler Wear foundation has been a favourite of mine for years! I still suffer from acne break outs and nothing covers them like this foundation. It does have a flash back but I don’t use a lot of flash photography so it doesn’t bother me all that much.
MUFE Ultra HD Stick foundation is a new favourite of mine. It has a medium, buildable coverage and the most stunning luminous, airbrushed finish! It lasts a really long time and looks great in pictures.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer is my all time favourite, it comes in a light enough shade for us pale gals to highlight with and is so lightweight yet full of pigment so the coverage is amazing. I don’t always have to powder this concealer as it barely ever creases on me.
I do love a lot of powders but I can’t fault the RCMA no colour powder, for the amount you get and the price it is incredible. It doesn’t leave a white cast and is super finely milled. I compare it to the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, it’s just as good and less than half the price.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade and number 7 brush have been my absolute favourites for well over a year now. I have extremely sparse, basically non existent, brows and this brush is so perfect to get clean super thin lines! I can’t fault the dip brow it’s waterproof, it absolutely will not budge. The best brow products I have ever used.
The Morphe 35N palette is my perfect all matte dream. I adore the Morphe palettes and I will always use more matte than shimmers!
The Narsissist palette is stunning. Great quality shadows and I love the way it comes with 4 mattes and 4 shimmers. The shadows blend like a dream and are super pigmented. It comes with a little eyeliner but the Nars liners aren’t my favourite.
The Estee Lauder Pure Colour Liner is BOMB. If you guys are looking for a liner that STAYS in your waterline and does not smudge or transfer this is the one. I have really watery eyes, especially when it’s windy or hay fever season and this always stays put on me. This is the blackest black liner I have ever tried. I’ve definitely been through about 3 of these in the last 2 years, I think it’ll be my favourite forever.
Morphe Gel Liner is just your bog standard gel liner… I don’t see a lot of difference in gel liners but I always reach for this one. It’s a really decent price and a nice black gel liner!
Purs Volume Vixen mascara, I have no words. This is THE BEST mascara I have ever tried. It creates volume and length without any clumps, it doesn’t flake or transfer onto my lids which ALWAYS happens to me! I will forever repurchase this mascara!
Really, any of the Peekaboo lashes will do me fine. I adore these lashes, they are my idea of perfect but the Trouble Maker lash just has this special place in my hear *yes I talk about make up like a person*. They just look so stunning on the eye, the band is a perfect thickness and super comfortable to wear. My other favourite style would be Whip.
Of course, who doesn’t love this palette?! I use this to contour, bronze, highlight, I use it on my eyes… It is such a staple in my collection I simply couldn’t live without it! Anastasia Beverly Hills killed it with this.
This has been my ride or die for well over a year now, although I’m dying to try new highlighters I still think I’ll always love this one. It has lasted me forever considering I use it almost every time I wear make up! I find it really flattering on my skin when I’m more pale and when I’m tanned. Thank you The Balm for creating Mary Lou and slaying my highlight always.
Basically, and Mac lipstick will do but Honeylove is my current favourite. The Mac lipstick formula is my all time favourite, they’re so comfortable to wear and they are so damn opaque! This one in particular works really well with my skin tone and I’m just a nude gal! I know it looks very peachy in the picture but it is more of a true, pale nude when swatched!
You’ll notice I didn’t include primer, bronzer and blush… I always change up those products and in all honesty I’ve never found anything that has really wowed me.. I don’t always wear blush and I find it hard to use a lot of bronzers as I’m really pale and anything orange toned on my skin doesn’t always look right!
Hope you enjoyed, sorry I took the pictures off the websites instead of pictured them myself! I’m writing this in the evening so there isn’t much lighting available to me right now, also my products are very well loved and don’t look the most presentable!
See you tomorrow with another post!
