My holy grail products.

These products are staples in my makeup bag. Ones that I repurchase and use on a daily basis. My favourites that never let me down. 

Too faced sweet peach pallete

Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months this palette is crazy popular. Not only are the colours gorgeous, it fricking smells amazing. Who doesn’t want to put a smelly pink eyeshadow on every morning!? Also the pay off is so good, they blend amazing and last all day. This is the first high end pallete that I can see a massive difference from high street. Total fave. 

Mac fix+

This is another one probably every one has. If not, get one. It has so many uses. My favourite is to apply shimmer eyeshadows. Also it’s great over makeup, under makeup or to make any product more pigmented. 

Maybelline lash sensational 

I literally have used this mascara for years. I can’t find a better one. It lengthens and adds volume. Plus it’s really cheap. Win. 

Becca highlighter in champagne pop

Thanks to Jacqueline Hill we all got our glow on last year. This costs a bloody fortune and I’m getting so low that I’m willing it to last. There are billions of amazing highlighters out now but I always end up reaching for this one when I want that extra something.

Collection 24 hour felt liner 

I love me a good flick. This is the only eyeliner I can use, and that doesn’t dry out. It’s super easy and so so cheap.

Urban decay all nighter foundation

This is a recent addition and the only foundation I’ve liked in a while. It’s really full coverage and lasts. I’m not 100% addicted, but I hate foundation shopping, it’s a pain trying to find my pale colour and one that doesn’t break me out, so this is staying for the time being. If you know any other ones I could try let me know!

My New Year Makeup Faves


So i’m not gunna lie, I’m a student. Which means these higher end makeup products are what I was lusting over for christmas. And they lived up to expectation.

I was looking for a foundation that I could use everyday, but was buildable to wear on special occasions. Nars sheer glow is perfect, a medium consistency that melts into the skin. I apply it with a Real Techniques buffing brush and blend with their miracle complexion sponge. Only downside is the pump for the foundation is sold separately.

Next is the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette. I’ve never owned a naked palette before, and they all look so gorgeous. But the smokey one appealed to me as it has a range of great colours, shimmer and mattes. The brush that comes with it is also really good. And the packaging is so pretty!

Last but not least are the Smashbox lipglosses. These were a gift from my mom, and she clearly has such good taste. The pack comes complete with five colours, that are all totally wearable. They aren’t too sticky, which I like, because there’s nothing worse than getting hair stuck in your lipgloss. I’m not sure whether the set is still being sold, but the lipglosses are sold separately, in slightly bigger versions which are definitely worth the investment.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation – £31, Pump £3, Urban Decay Smokey Palette £38 , Smashbox Lipgloss Set £19
