Hello Beauties! When you test out as many products as I do, it's easy to forget those unsung heroes...the products you find yourself going back to time after time, and on an everyday basis, that never seem to let you down. Today I thought I'd share with you 6 of those products and why I think they deserve a spot in the top 6.
When it comes to foundation, it really doesn't get any better than the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. After 5 years in the making, this foundation creates the perfect base - flawless, pore free and long lasting, all whilst looking completely natural. The foundation provides a medium to full coverage without feeling heavy or looking cakey and manages to achieve that 'matte but not flat' look which I adore so much. It'll cost you a pretty penny, but in my opinion, if you're going to splurge, splurge on your base products.
Nars has quickly become one of my favourite brands for blush, and that's one hell of a title when you look at how much blush I actually own (more than I care to admit!). Angelika is the perfect cool toned pink, perfect for creating that rosy, fresh-faced look and the hint of sparkle instantly lifts my cheeks and gives me an illuminated, well rested finish. If pink blush is your cup of tea, then you need to add this to your makeup bag.
Having always been an advocate of high street mascaras, I was pretty surprised to find that a high end mascara had wiggled it's way into my top 6, however, since receiving a mini sample of this, I haven't looked back. The Clinique High Impact mascara manages to lift my lashes and give them that fluttery look, without clumping at all, and the long and thin brush makes getting to those hard to reach corner lashes a doodle.
It wouldn't be a top 6 without including my all time favourite MAC lipstick, Peach Blossom. Peach Blossom is the perfect pinky-peachy nude with a cremesheen finish to really hydrate the lips and give them that plump look we all desire. It goes perfectly with my fair skin, and looks perfectly pretty when I've got a slight tan too. In my opinion, this is an all-rounder - perfect for everyday wear and also paired with a strong smokey eye.
Having oily, acne-prone and dehydrated skin has made finding my perfect moisturiser a little difficult to say the least. But since picking up the Clinique Moisture Surge (3 bottles ago!), I haven't looked back. The gel formula feels extremely cooling and refreshing on my oily, dehydrated skin and is light enough to not aggregate my acne or clog my pores. The formula is extremely moisturising and I've really noticed a difference in the texture of my skin, making this moisturiser something I can't see myself living without.
If I only had time to apply one makeup product in the morning, it would be my Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz. Filling in my brows makes me feel put together and really completes any look, but it can be tricky and with the wrong products, can often look a little fake. Since discovering the ABH Brow Wiz a couple of years ago now, I haven't looked back. The thin pencil is easy to control, making filling in your brows in a natural way easy as pie. Also, the extensive colour range is perfect for achieving the perfect arch.
