Want to know what 10 products I think you should try?
I’m a big fan of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo range and most of the shades I’ve tried have really impressed me however, a shade that has really stood out has to be On and On Bronze which is a gorgeous bronze brown. It has top notch pigmentation and can be worn alone or as a base for powder shadow as it really helps to improve wear time and really makes shadows “pop” Here you can read my full review of the Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze.
ELF Brightening Eye Colour Quad in Butternut
The Brightening Quads from ELF are underrated in my opinion. For £1.95 they’re crazy pigmented and have such soft, buttery texture which blends effortlessly but do keep in mind that they’re prone to fall out. One of my favourite quads is Butternut which consists of a yellow champagne, an orange toned beige, a deep brown and a bronze brown, all of which are shimmery. I find each shade just compliments my green eyes well and the shades really work together to create a nice and simple daytime friendly look.
When Naked 1 and 2 were released I was very tempted to purchase both but I couldn’t quite bring myself round to buying them but when Naked 3 was released and it was revealed that the shades were pink toned I knew it had to be mine. It’s just a lovely palette to use for both daytime and evening looks. It’s got a lovely mix of shades from pinks to taupes and it also has a nice variety of finishes too. I will say that it is quite pricey but I find the quality of the shadows are of high standard and have fantastic pigmentation and longevity.

HD Brows Kit*
I have the kit in the shade Vamp which contains four powders, Nude, Carbon, Dark Brown and Rich Brown. I personally use the shade Dark Brown as I find it’s an almost perfect match for my dark hair and helps to fill in those gaps. The quality of the shadows are phenomenal. Each has splendid colour pay off and the longevity is just super impressive. It’s also good to keep in mind that the kit also doubles up as an eyeshadow palette so it’d be perfect for travel when you have limited space.

As many of you probably know, I actually work for the company that manufactures Veil Cover Cream but my love of the high coverage camouflage cream started well before I began working for the company. If you’re someone who has a birthmark, vitiligo, acne, rosacea or even an unwanted tattoo and find that high street foundation or concealer products don’t quite cut it when it comes to coverage, this is well worth checking out as it conceals very, very well.

This powder is one of the best powders I’ve ever tried. Not only is it super affordable but it’s lightweight, fab for setting my foundation, it blends well, it keeps shine at bay, has good lasting power, doesn’t accentuate my dry patches and it doesn’t look cakey. It’s basically brilliant. The only thing I’d change about it if I could would be the packaging as it’s not the best but hey ho, the product works well.

ELF Baked Blush in Pinktastic
Ever since I purchased the ELF Baked Blush range I fell in love with each product but one shade that is just that little better than the rest is Pinktastic. It’s a pale gold with a pink undertone and it gives the skin such a lovely glow so it’s perfect for use as a highlighter. It also has good pigmentation, a silky smooth texture and minimal fallout which is always a plus. Here, you can read my full review of the ELF Baked Blush in Pinktastic.
Topshop Cream Blush in Prime Time
Topshop make up is actually pretty underrated in my eyes. I’ve tried a few things from them now and all of which have impressed me, even if I did end up purchasing shades that weren’t necessarily suitable for me (Ahem, Sunbeam) One product that I am really happy I got was one of their cream blushes. I picked it up in the shade Prime Time which in the pan looks ridiculously bright and a tad scary but once on the cheeks it’s much more wearable. I find you just need to apply the tiniest amount to the cheeks to give them a natural looking rosy glow as the blush is super pigmented and a little goes a very long way which means you if you do want an intense look, you can very easily achieve that with this blush but at the same time if you accidentally apply a little too much, its fairly easy to blend out so long as you haven’t applied a boat load.

MAC Lipstick in Pink Nouveau
If I had to choose one lipstick to keep from MAC it would definitely be Pink Nouveau as the shade is super beautiful and it works really well with my skin tone. It’s a bright Barbie pink that is actually surprisingly wearable. It has a Satin finish so it’s sort of matte but with a sheen and gives good opaque coverage. Personally I think Pink Nouveau would suit most skin tones but as MAC lippies aren’t the cheapest I’d highly recommend swatching it at a counter just to be sure.
Last but not least we have this great lip palette from Sleek. If you’re a fan of pink lips I highly recommend checking it out. The palette contains four shades, Vegas, a bright pink with a satin finish. Lola, a sort of berry toned pink with a gloss finish. Dancer, a milky baby pink with a gloss finish and Jewel, a really bright pink with a matte finish. I just adore the shades in this little set and find them such fun to wear. I really like the pigmentation of the shades, particularly the gloss finishes as they’re so creamy yet have such good colour pay off.
