As the title suggests I will be sharing with you my top five makeup must-haves, that i absolutely could not live without, dramatic I know. And also why I love these items so much.
First up, Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. This foundation holds a special place in my heart, and that might sound bizarre but I will explain why. Estée Lauder was the first beauty counter that I visited, and after that I was truly in love with makeup. This foundation is very full coverage, which gave me great confidence from the first day I wore it, right up until this very day. Although it is full coverage it still feels comfortable enough to wear everyday, and although I have strayed onto other foundations I still come back to this one!
Next up, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. I think this may be the most expensive item in my makeup collection, but I have no regrets buying it. The packaging alone is enough to make any makeup lover go weak at the knees. The gorgeous duo has a bronze shade to sculpt, wether that be to warm up your face or for an intense contour. And the highlighter. Oh my godness. The highlighter is simply beautiful, my go to everyday for sure.
Now for a little mention of Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in Auburn. Although it may look pretty dark in the photo above, this brow product is the perfect shade for my auburn brows. I always found it so difficult to find a brow product that actually matched my eyebrows, and since I found this I haven’t looked back. Once you’ve got the hang of it, the formula makes it so easy to apply with an angled brush, I can pretty much do them in 30 seconds! Also this tiny pot has lasted me months and months!
Next is my holy grail blush (yes I now call it blush after watching so many American youtubers), Benefit Dandelion Blusher, I think I love this blush so much because of how subtle it is. I suffer with a lot of redness especially on my cheeks, and this blusher doesn’t emphasise that. It is a gorgeous dusty pink, perfect for a summer glow. As you can see I have given it a lot of love, and may need to repurchase soon!
And lastly, Mac Amplified Lipstick in Cosmo. I adore this lipstick, it’s not only my favourite Mac lipstick, but my favourite lipstick of all time. The amplified finish is by far my favourite finish that Mac do, so naturally I own quite a few, however the formula of this shade is different to all of the rest. Weird right? It feels more moisturising and is waaay more creamy. Maybe its an oddly made one, I guess we shall find out when I repurchase it! For me this is the perfect shade, it compliments any makeup look, and I just love it for everyday wear.
