Everyone has make-up items that they use without fail everyday until we find something better. They are holy grail products that we can’t not turn to when it comes to making our face up. There are a few that will always be in my collection and others that I switch up every so often. These are my current make-up favourites when it comes to my morning routine; L’Oreal True Match Foundation, Bourjois Push-Up the Volume Glamour Mascara, MAC Deep Rooted Lipstick, Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade, Lipcote Lipstick Sealer and L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Khol Eyeliner.
L’Oreal True Match Foundation
This is probably one of the best high street foundations I’ve ever used. I like a slightly dewy finish but hate it when liquid foundations have that pearlescent shimmer through them for the winter months. I’d say these a really decent medium coverage, glides on so smoothly and lasts all day. There are so many shades too (23 to be exact) so there’s one for everyone. The main reason I bought this is because L’oreal have Gary Thompson (The PlasticBoy) in their advert, kudos to them for breaking down stereotypes on TV.
Bourjois Push-Up the Volume Glamour Mascara
I actually have a love-hate relationship with this mascara. When I first bought Bourjois Push-Up the Volume, it was so wet! I found that my lashes clumped together but I stuck with it anyway because I know this can happen when using a new mascara. Now in love with it, it makes my lashes thick and full and stay curled all day. Not sure whether I’ll repurchase as it took a while to become less liquidy but for now, it’s a favourite.
MAC Deep Rooted Lipstick
This is slowly becoming my go-to lipstick for everyday! I am completely in love with MAC Deep Rooted and is such an unusual greige tone. Definitely on the cooler, blue toned grey but looks great with most outfits for me at the moment with these dark mornings and nights. Suits the British weather perfectly!
Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade
This is my ultimate Holy Grail product. I honestly don’t think this will ever be removed from my collection! If someone said I could only use one item of make-up for the rest of my life, this would be it. There’s a link above to my review of this. Definitely not an over hyped product, the ABH Dip Brow Pomade is the best thing since slice bread for perfect brows.
Lipcote Lipstick Sealer
I’ve had Lipcote for years but never really wore lipstick previously. I remember the first time I tried using it, I had a cut and it stung like a bitch and never touched it again. Now, I wear lipstick pretty much every day and always put a layer of this on top. It makes it last literally all day. I’ll have a blog post up on it soon along with a cheeky review so watch this space…
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Kohl Eyeliner
I generally tend to wear a black liquid or gel liner but have switched to this brown L’Oreal Colour Riche khol liner recently. It’s soft and goes on perfectly without smudging half way through the day. It’s much warmer than a plain black line so I nice change for Autumn.
