My Makeup Must-Haves

Hey guys!!

Over the weekend I did a bit of makeup cleaning/throwing/organizing and finally put my must-haves in one place so I thought I would share them with you:

Bourjois healthy mix foundation
I have used this foundation religiously on a daily basis for 6 years+ and I can't find anything that comes close to it! It is the perfect everyday foundation, super light weight, hydrating, gives decent coverage and most importantly no breakouts. I remember using mac once upon a time every single day and as soon as I would remove it I would feel super ugly, my skin would look awful and I felt like I needed a full coverage foundation all the time but this definitely changed once I started using the healthy mix foundation. At the end of the day when I remove my foundation my skin still looks and feels good! For reference I'm an NC30 and my shade in this foundation is 55. Buy it here

Sephora cream lip stain in number 13
I mentioned this in my wedding post and have also used this straight for 5 years+ it is very creamy, matte, non-drying and fairly affordable. This shade of pink is perfect, not super in your face and not nude either making it the perfect every say shade too! Buy it here

Primark PS lip liner- shade 09
I picked this up on a whim and for £1 I had nothing to lose. Not going to lie, I was a little scared to try it because of how cheap it was I thought it may cause a break out but a year down and its part of my daily makeup bag- It is creamy, easy to apply and goes perfect with my Sephora lip stain. 

Maybelline the eraser eye concealer
The perfect everyday concealer- super light weight, applies and blends perfectly! I like the sponge applicator as this makes the whole process easy. But it here

Bare minerals original foundation
Okay this product is not raved about enough as it should be. I was skeptical of a powder giving me good coverage but I honestly could NOT believe what one swirl of this did for me. I used it daily whilst I was on honeymoon and use it on the days where I just cba doing my face. Its easy to apply, goes on super smoothly, long lasting and has some frickin good pigmentation. This product will ALWAYS be in my travel makeup bag. My shade is golden beige 13. Buy it here

Naked flushed
This is a perfect multi purpose palette. The bronzer blends beautifully and looks natural, the blush is flattering and the highlight adds a nice touch. I also apply the bronzer as a base on my eyes daily. This is another product that will always be in my makeup travel bag. Buy it here

Mary lou manizer
Believe it or not this had been on my list for the longest time but I just never got round to purchasing it but it was gifted to me on my birthday (thanks nazmeera) and has quickly become one of my faves and I was late to the party but yes I feel the hype. Its definitely not subtle but not over the top either, I love that the shimmer is within the finely milled powder as a pose to chunky glitter like some. Buy it here

Benefit Roller lash mascara 
Does exactly what it says on the bottle- gives me the perfect lift, beautiful set of fluttering lashes and 0 clumping. Buy it here

Giorgio Armani- luminous silk foundation
I heard lots of positive things on the luminous silk but I have to admit Louise Thompson gave me the final push to purchase this foundation as she also didn't stop raving about it, I saw it on her skin in person and saw the way it photographed and I was sold. Its lightweight but definitely buildable, it literally melts into your skin and gives you that airbrushed look. My shade is 6.5 Buy it here

Bobbi brown blush in Tawny
Goes well with many different looks and defo a good addition to any makeup collection. It gives that natural flush to your skin but keep a light hand as its super pigmented. Buy it here

Be sure to let me know your must have's too!

Love always
