My Top 5 Beauty Items




I have been doing lots of fashion posts over the past couple of months, so I feel like we are well overdue another beauty post. You guys will probably know by now that I am a huge fan of makeup and everything in between, but I have been trying to reign it in over the past couple of months. There was a time when I would see a new makeup release and I had to own it straight away, regardless of how much I had already spent on makeup and if I actually needed it. I realised at the start of this year that I needed to curb my spending on makeup and I am now left with a collection of items that I really love and that I use all of the time.

The items that I am going to mention in this post really are the items that I go back to each day when I am getting ready. I feel like these items not only work for me, but they make my skin look the best that it possibly can and that is what it is all about. I am sure that you guys will have heard me speak about these items many times over the years, but that just shows that I do reach for these hells of a lot and they have stood the test of time. So, here are my top 5 beauty items, that I really do truly love!

Cover FX Matte Primer
Out of all of the primers in my makeup collection that I could mention, it had to be this Cover FX Matte Primer that I spoke about first. This stuff not only sits on my skin really well, it makes my makeup last all day long. All you need to use is a small pea-sized amount of this stuff and I start by applying it just to the centre of my face where I need to be matte and then I disperse it throughout the face. I just think that this is s great primer and one that I still enjoy using, all of these years later. I always say it, but this is a vastly underrated makeup product.

Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation
When it came to a foundation, I really didn’t know which one to mention because I have so many that I adore at the moment, but the one that is really taking the crown has to be the Nars Radiant Longwear foundation. Since I picked this stuff up the other year, I have used it more or less all of the time because it is full coverage, lightweight on the skin and it sits all day like an absolute dream. There really isn’t one thing that I would change about this stunning item and that is why I love it so much. I would recommend anybody go out and check this out!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
As much as I don’t want to love this anymore, I still cannot get away from this stuff. I can remember picking this up years back after seeing everybody loving it and I knew that I was going to have own it. I have gone through so many tubes of this stuff over the years and I am still not bored of it. The thing with this primer is that it is so full coverage and that is what is perfect. I only need a small amount of this underneath my eyes and then everything is completely covered without needing to build anything up with more product.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Even though I do normally go for high-end makeup because I feel like it works better for me, when it comes to mascara, I couldn’t be more different. I have been using this Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for years now and I think that it is the most amazing product. It makes my lash hairs jet black, holds a curl really well and lasts beautifully all day long. I am so in love with this product and I would never buy another high-end mascara while they still have this stunning product on the market because it does everything that I need.

Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil
Since I picked up this Benefit brow pencil, I have been completely in love with it. I was hesitant whether to pick this up or not to begin with after trying the Anastasia Brow Wiz and not really loving it, but I have fallen in love with this. It is a very precise brow pencil, as the name suggests because it is a narrow pencil like tip on the end. I am shade number 4, which is a deep brown and it is incredibly pigmented. I love to use this to draw in individual brow hairs and get a very natural and full looking brow. Amazing eyebrow product that I am in love with.

  5. I definitely need to try that matte primer by cover FX. I have their grip and water-cloud primer which I've been loving so I definitely need to try that matte one. I'm also a massive fan of tarte shape tape but I am loving the jeffree star concealer more now.
