I always love finding out what beauty products my girlfriends are loving so I thought I would share my everyday favourites with you too. Enjoy!
I am still loving the Becca First Light Primer (you can find my review right here). As I mentioned in my review, it gives the skin a natural, dewy glow. I think it’s always important to start off with a great base which will help the rest of your makeup apply easier and last longer.
Speaking of bases, I have been using Youngblood Loose Natural Mineral Foundation for over a year now and I could not speak more highly about it. Before this, my skin was breaking out a lot. It wasn’t until I booked an appointment to see a dermatologist where I found out that the liquid foundation I was using was clogging my pores. In comparison, this Youngblood mineral foundation provides a buildable coverage which feels lightweight and comfortable on the skin.
To help conceal any darkness under my eyes, I use Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Correcting Fluid in Peach. Before this, I was opting for a lighter concealer but instead of brightening, it was leaving a grey cast under my eyes. Not ideal. The peach tone in this fluid actually corrects any blue-hued dark circles, which helps keep my under eyes looking nice and bright. For general concealing, I use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I find it is long lasting and has a creamy consistency which is easy to blend into the skin.
For my cheeks, I use the Nars Orgasm Blush which I am sure every one of you has heard about. It has been a staple in my makeup collection for years now and I don’t see it disappearing anytime soon. Orgasm is a peachy-pink shade with a shimmer finish, perfect for everyday wear. Next, I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. Together, these products help me achieve a bronzed, glowing complexion.
And finally, I have left my favourite until last, my Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil in Stick. There’s no denying that it’s a splurge purchase but I think it’s worth every penny. The lipstick has a creamy formula which is hydrating on the lips and it smells amazing, what more could you want? I have the shade #44 which is a beautiful pinky nude.
Feel free to share your favourite beauty bits in the comments, I always love finding new products to try!
