My Must Have Makeup Products


These are the items that I reach for when I want to look half decent, but not over done. None of these items are new loves, they are firm favourites that I have gone back to time and time again. 


The only item for the face I haven't included is the brows. I do not enjoy the process of doing my brows... I find that it is super hard to find something I 100% love when I am blonde. At the moment I am using ABH dip brow in Blonde, and even though I do like it, I feel like I might find something I prefer out there one day!


I purchased this on a whim because my friend (Hi Chloe), used to work for the brand. I ended up really enjoying this product and it smells blimin' lovely. I am now running out of it and definitely need to repurchase another bottle soon.


I originally bought this on a trip to America from Sephora (it was back in the days where Makeup Forever was not sold here). I fell in love with this foundation straight away. I can be very over the top with makeup, or very lazy, depends on my mood. This is great for if you want a full coverage foundation that is quick and easy to apply. I've repurchased this several times and I need to get it in another shade as I need a bit of a tan to wear the current one I own. 


I love colour correcting under my eyes. I have an obsession with hiding my dark circles, and to be honest I have no idea why I am so weird about it. However, I am, so I just roll with it. This has the same constancy as the normal concealers (which I also love), but helps to neutralise the dark colour that can be found under the eye. I do also love the NYX colour correctors too which are a cheaper alternative, but not as moisturising. 


I blimin' love this concealer. I love the sponge applicator (again, for laziness) and consistency. I find that it doesn't crease and doesn't the job I need. I again use this under my eyes, but I also use it on my forehead and chin to balance my face. I don't tend to use this to cover spots, I will reach for a more intense concealer like the Makeup Forever HD Waterproof concealer. 


I have repurchased this a few times now, even though it is expensive in my opinion. But sadly, I am in love with it. It is so nice for if you are doing a more glow, natural look and don't want to use powders to bronze. It is also great for if you aren't wearing foundation but your face is lighter than your body to even up everything. If you haven't tried this, you really should give it a go!


I've mentioned this a few times on here. This is a really good mascara and the one I have been reaching for the most for the past few months. It can be a bit clumpy though (which I don't mind), so it might not be for everyone!


I've already mentioned these lippies a billion times over in this blog, so I won't bore you again! These are great light nudes, especially if you are pale with dry lips.


Another product I have mentioned numerous times before and so has every other blogger. This is the perfect contouring shade for me, not too warm and not too grey. I use it to contour my nose, under my lower lip, cheeks and in the crease of my eyes if I'm not wearing eyeshadows. I've lost count of the amount of times a I have repurchased this bad boy. I also love the brush that it comes with! 


This is yet another item that everyone and their mother owns or has spoken about. I tried not to love it, but I cannot help it. The only issue I have with it (Becca highlighters in general), is that they are very soft, so break when you start to hit pan. 


I love this setting spray. I am on my third bottle and need to buy another as it is on it's last legs - at least I will get it in the new packaging! It helps to keep my makeup on and not have any powder-like texture to my face.


I tried for months and months to get a hold of this product but it was always sold out. When I finally managed to purchase one, I was not left disappointed. The shadows in this palette are so pigmented, you only need the tiniest amount. They are very soft, so fall out can happen but other than that, I love it! The colours are all beautiful and right up my street. I have done a detailed review with swatches previously which you can take a look at for more info!



Are any of these your go to products? What are your ride or die make up items?

  11. Stunning photos! I've wanted to get my hands on the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel bronzer for a while now, cream products tend to work much better with my dry skin!
