Lately, my skins been a bit of an issue, so for the past few days I've not been wearing any face makeup in order to let my skin breathe. However, when I do feel like whacking on a full face, these makeup products is what I tend to reach for time after time.
For my base I more often than not wear the Maybelline FIT Me Foundation (£7.99), this has such a beautiful consistency and leaves my skin looking silky - not oily and it blends in perfectly with my skin tone. When I was in duty free before I went to Rome I picked up a few MAC bits and this highlighter was one of them, I LOVE it. This particular MAC product was what I had been wanting to buy for such a long time now, so what better time to buy it than when it's discounted? MAC Highlight in Soft & Gentle (£24.00) has just the right amount of shimmer and lasts all day. Next I've started to use Soap & Glory's Love At First Blush (£11.00), which could be used as a blush and highlight as it does have a few shimmery tones but I tend to use it as just a blush.
For my brows I've used the Maybelline Brow Drama (£4.99) as the shade blends well, but with this product it can tend to be a little flaky so I try not to use too much on my brows, what's handy with this is the way it's shaped like a mascara brush so it's easier to use on the brows. Lately, I've fallen in love with eyeshadows and this palette in particular has all the shades I'm lusting for. They're super pigmented and the shades all blend really well together. This Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 Palette (£4.00) has the perfect shades for if you're going to a Christmas party or just for chilling during the day.
For me, my all time favourite eyeliner is Collection's Fast Stroke Eyeliner (£2.99), it's so cheap but it comes out in a true black shade. I find the wand is a great shape and doesn't bend or become clumpy and it doesn't smudge around the eyes, leaving you with the perfect flick all day (if you don't struggle with the flick that is - like moi). Again, for mascara I rave a lot about this one in particular, but it really does give your lashes looking like false ones. It lengthens them, gives them volume and doesn't clump. Seventeen Falsifeye Mascara (£6.49) is one of my faves and I reach for it time and time again.
Lastly, as it's winter now I tend to go for a darker red on my lips if I'm going anywhere fancy. I don't usually wear lipstick on a day to day basis but somedays when I'm feeling up for it I do more often than not tend to go for a lip crayon rather than a lipstick. Maybelline's Colour Drama in Berry Munch (£4.99) is so easy to apply and lasts a good few hours (even when eating and drinking). As my lips aren't exactly symmetrical, lip crayons just make applying colour to your lips so much easier.
