I've been playing around with my make up all day today and decided to blog about my top five make up essentials are and why I think you should invest in these products or similar to.
1. Mac Prep and Prime Skin Base Visage; £16.50
I LOVE this product, it is a white cream which has a glittery pigment in it which helps brighten your skin before applying foundation. It also takes away the appearance of red skin and therefore gives you a better coverage of foundation using less of it.
2. Mac Satin Lipstick in Myth £13.50
Every girl should have a decent nude lipstick. I recently purchased this as I needed a nice colour to compliment my going out smokey eyes look. This is also a great everyday colour too. If you are more fair skinned then Myth is a great colour, an alternative is Illamasqua in Sonnet for a slightly more expensive £15.00.
3. Clinique High Impact Mascara, £15.00
I really like this mascara, it gives you great volume without clumps and also creates good lash length. It's more expensive than a 'high-street' brand such as Rimmel but I think it's worth it.
4. Bobbi Brown Blusher in 15 - Desert Rose, £17.00
With winter and spring I find that blusher is more of a natural look, opposed to bronzed cheeks, which I like to reserve for summer. This blusher it highly pigmented, you don't need much at all when applying. If you are going to go for a Bobbi Brown blusher, try the different colours out. I thought i'd need a much brighter pink but when I tried it, I looked clown like.
5. Benefit Boi-ing, £16.50
Expensive for a concealer but worth every penny. This is the worlds best-selling concealer claiming to have 'industrial strength', which it does. It's appears to be creamy but has a thicker texture to create good coverage. This is also a handbag must have.
