Hey guys – I have an exciting post today. Since I graduated and have started working for myself, I have been trying out HEAPS of new products! (My favourite thing to do) I have been comparing formulas and trying to find staple products for my kit. Here are a few products I have fallen in LOVE with the past few months!
- Weleda – Skin Food
I have spoken about this on my Facebook page, so I don’t want to go into too much detail, but it is incredible. It is for rough/dry skin and has chamomile, viola and calendula extract that soothes your skin – it is no joke! I use it on those with dry skin, or on more mature skin. I still apply a primer but this ensures the foundation glides on effortlessly.
2. Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation – Liquid.
This foundation is my staple foundation for my blog. Medium coverage but you can build it to full with concealer and powder at the end. It suits most skin types, unless you’re overly oily. It lasts all day and doesn’t feel half as heavy as M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid but has an even nicer finish.
3. MAKEUP FOREVER – Pro Bronze Fusion Waterproof Bronzer – Shade 30M
I have never found a bronzer that doesn’t go patchy, or fade as the day goes on until I found this one. It was recommended to me by some of the girls in Makeup Forever for my kit. It honestly suits 90% of skin tones, as you build it up over a few times. It can go from a light bronze to a dark night time look. It is waterproof so is perfect for brides, or you criers on night out, haha! It never fades and is so creamy and blends so easily on the skin. A must.
4. Teddy Eye kohl – M.A.C
This pencil is so blendable if you’re going for a smokey eye. You can scribble it all over the lid and blend it out with a natural hair brush and you have a smokey eye in seconds! (Make sure to set it with a powder though, or it will slide all over your lid) It is also fab in the waterline, as it is not as harsh as black. It brings a look from soft to glam, but not a night time look. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a more natural look.
Hope you’re enjoyed this post! Let me know what you thought over on snapchat: basicchic17
