I feel like I haven’t done a makeup related post in months. Okay, maybe not months, but it feels that way.
I have been so busy trying to juggle everything I have going on and doing some new and exciting things, I feel like I have lost touch with the main reason as to why I started blogging: beauty.
Today I bring you my current favourite makeup products, that you can buy from the high street.
Soap and Glory Speed Plump All-Day Super Moisture Marvel – £13 // I use this as my primer and it’s probably one of the best ones I have tried from a high street store, and so inexpensive. This is something I would definitely purchase again and again, without question. The scent is watermelon, which is odd, as I hate watermelon, but the scent of this has grown on me over the last 12 months and I love the packaging; sleek and travel friendly. Even though this isn’t meant to be used as a primer, because of the glycerin it makes it sticky, giving it the best pro for a base as it locks your foundation down.
Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette – £6 // I have such a bad time with under eye circles, so when I am getting ready for a night out or an important day at work, I always make sure I colour correctly. Using the orangey colours to get rid of the darkness and hide the fact I’ve had a bad nights sleep. In this palette you have everything you need, for a great price. They are really smooth and creamy, so easy to work with, once you’ve warmed them up a little.
Revlon Colourstay Foundation £12.99 // I’ve been mixing up my foundation routine recently, I wanted to try out some different ones and this is something I tried while doing my foundation series. I decided to get a few out of the drawer and this was one of them. Even though it doesn’t last as well as my Estee Lauder Double Wear (the Queen of foundation), I needed to find something similar I could use for day to day use. The coverage of this is great and very close to my holy grail. Even though it doesn’t have the same staying power, it’s still a really good foundation for the price. With the changes to my skin (going oily) this has really helped combat that to make sure I don’t get oily throughout the day.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer £5.99 // This is new to my makeup routine, but something I see sticking around for a while. I would class this as a high coverage concealer, giving you a good mask to hide those bags, while lightening at the same time. Just a little tip, when I first bought this concealer in 10 Fair, thinking this would be the lighter colour. How wrong was I? I actually found out that 15 fair was the lightest and it’s the perfect shade for me.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder £3.99 // My favourite pressed powder…Not that I’ve tried them all. But its cheap, it does the job beautifully and makes sure I don’t get oily throughout the day. I really think this is a great finisher to my base and explains why my makeup stays on for so long. I haven’t tried many pressed powders, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder £14.00 // For a bronzer, this does sound quite expensive, especially against my favourite one from Revolution, only costing £3.00. But I like to mix things up and this one I have been using daily for a while now. Now that I have lost my tan from my holiday, this one is great for pale skin. I have the colour 01 and it’s the lightest bronzer I’ve ever seen. It’s not overly pigmented, which I like in a bronzer and you just need to build it up.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush £8.99 // I am loving this blusher at the moment, I have the colour 20 Lavish Mauve, and it’s the perfect colour for autumn. Adds a gorgeous flushed colour to your cheeks, without looking too pink. I am so curious to try the colour 10 Nude Mauve Pink, for a more natural colour and I might have to pick this up to check it out,.
I Heart Makeup Goddess of Faith Highlighter £4.99 // Such an inexpensive highlighter and getting 10g of product. This highlighter I think will last me and for the price and the pigmentation, I’m quite happy with that. There are a few different colours in this range, but Goddess of Faith is a beautiful pearly champagne colour, hints of gold and pink. This is probably one of my all time favourite highlighters, it lasts all day, giving you that gorgeous glow.
I Heart Makeup | I Heart Chocolate-Salted Caramel £7.99 // I have banged on about this palette so much. I absolutely love it and provides me with all the colours I need for my normal look. The pigmentation is good, for the money you are paying, it needs a little building with certain colours, mainly the dark mattes. However, if you’re looking for a good palette on a budget, this is something I would definitely recommend.
L’Oreal Paris Paradise Mascara £11.99 // I am going to admit this straight away, I wasn’t a fan of this mascara when I first bought it. But I was wrong…There we go, I said it, I was wrong. For volume and lengthening, this mascara is great. My issue with it is separating the lashes, but I have overcome this, by using another mascara with it, it’s worth doing because of how good the L’Oreal one is.
Maybelline Colour Sensational Creamy Mattes £6.99 // I am more of a liquid lipstick girl, because of the longevity, but I don’t have a high street one I like. So I decided to share my favourite lipstick instead, which is the colour Beige Babe. This lipstick can be a little drying, but I just make sure I put lip balm on at the beginning of applying my makeup, so when I finally apply a lipstick it’s more moisturised. They don’t last very long, but I don’t know a lipstick that does.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed me sharing my favourite high street makeup. If you would like to see my high end, comment below and let me know.
