Spring time is the perfect season for any makeup lover. We get to leave the house without the stress of our makeup being sweated or rained off, for once. I thought, to kick off the sunshine months, I’d tell you guys what my go-to beauty essentials are! These products I use near enough daily (well, every time I wear makeup anyway). I couldn’t find the exact product online for a few of these but I attached links to where I got them from anyway. I buy all my products in store so you may find them local to you!
I use this on my eyes as a highlight, fixing it in the inner corners with Barry M Glitter Glue & Primer (£4.99). I can never get the inner corners as pigmented as I like when I use eyeshadow, which is why the glitter is a great alternative. It comes in so many different colours, so you can match the colour of the glitter to any look!
This highlighter is hands down the best I have ever used and for less than £3, it’s a bargain! I have this in both the Pearlescent (pictured above) and Peach Diamond shade – however, I prefer the peach as I tend to wear quite a warm face. If you’re looking for intense glow on a budget, this is my top recommendation.
The Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip collection is definitely my favourite out of all the lipstick collections I own. I’m one of those unlucky people who love matte but suffer from dry lips. Luckily, these don’t dry out and last forever. I’ve even gone to sleep wearing these (don’t judge) and woken up with them still perfectly intact.
This is definitely one of the pricier items in my makeup collection but, I promise you, it’s so worth it. Anyone who’s followed me on twitter long enough will know how awful I am at eye looks – well, this palette saved me. It’s not too pigmented, easy to build up and super blendable. I’m still a newbie in terms of eyeshadow, so I only use about 3 or 4 of the shades for a quite natural/subtle smoky look but it will probably work just as well if you’re looking to create drama.
I could easily have included so many more products in this post but I’ve got to save something for this weeks vlog! What are your essential makeup items? Let me know in the comment thread below,
