Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing really well!
So since the beginning of the year, there has been a 5 products that I have been using almost every single time I do my makeup, and I thought I would share this with you all! Some of these are new, some of these are re-discovered products!
Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist, £16.00 – This spray is becoming a solid resident in my makeup collection. I love it for setting my makeup, and for a little spritz throughout the day! I also really love the scent. It doesn’t lingerer on your skin, but for that split second when you spray it, it smells divine! The only con I have with this product is that the spray is SAVAGE on this! It comes out really harsh, and you have to fan your face dry! On a clean face on a hot day, this would be a lifesaver! But just be cautious when you have a full face of glam!
Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara in Black, £26.50 – I love this mascara, the length this gives is amazing! Makes my lashes really fanned out, and my bottom lashes look beautiful. This won’t transfer onto your eyes, and will help that curl in your lashes stay all day long. It a really lovely black aswell.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15, £18.50 – This has been a cult favourite for a long time, and I have gone through countless bottles of the stuff throughout the years. It got a little lost in the back of my drawers for a while, due to the new member of the crew ‘Tarte Shape Tape’ but I decided to reach for this and I am so glad I did. I fell in love with it all over again! The colour and consistency is beautiful, and it has a really nice coverage to it! It does crease if you don’t set it, but once you do, it will look flawless all day!
Iconic London Pigment Foundation Stick in Porcelain 0.0, £24.99 – I stumbled across this on Instagram one day watching mini tutorials (can anyone else just watch them for hours?) and sadly I can’t remember who it was using this but her skin looked incredible! I really wanted to purchase a stick foundation, and I was really tempted to delve in and try the Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation, but it will cost a hefty buck! So I brought this and I am really glad I did!! It is like butter, it goes on the skin seamlessly, and doesn’t tug either. The coverage isn’t full coverage, I would say more medium, but can be built up! The only thing I find is that for the palest shade, it isn’t very pale at all, so I really have to use a light concealer to try and get this to the correct shade.
Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid in Light/Iridescent, £7.99 – I saw Nikkie Tutorials talk about this in a Youtube video a really long time ago, I brought it and it just sat in my draw for months. For some reason I just never really went in to try it. I was clearing out my makeup and I came across this, so I left this out to try the next time I put my makeup on and I really loved it! I use it either mixed into my primer, or on all the high points on my face after I have put my foundation and concealer on. This doesn’t go well over powder, but really helps you get that ‘glow from within’ effect! I don’t always use this for my makeup, but when I am going full glam, or want that extra blinding pop of highlight, this is my go-to cream!
And that is it! I love reading these, as it great to know what other people are living for! Till next time guys!
Lots of love, Ellie x
