Current Make-Up Faves

Mac Fix + Spray - I hated this when I first purchased and thought it was a complete waste of money but I love this now. It can be sprayed on shadows to intensify them or use as a liner or my personal favourite is spritzing it on a stippling brush when my make-up looks too powdery or when I'm getting ready for a night out, it softens everything up and makes your face look dewy and polished - plus my make-up doesn't budge!

Chanel Mat Lumiere - I hated Pro Lumiere, love this. It smells amazing! I love the luxurious bottle and the foundation is beautiful, it glides on easily, blends well and leaves a luminous but semi matte finish.

Superdrug Coconut & Shea Lip Butter - I recieved this in a gift set, it's a really light moisturising lip balm and it's the only one I've found I can wear over a nude lip without it looking odd.

Bourjois Highlighting Powder - I've gone through several of these already and was devestated when my local Superdrug stopped stocking this. I searched online and picked one up on ebay and it's just as good as I remembered! I've very fussy with highlighters an this adds a gorgeous pearlescent sheen to your skin without the horrible shimmery glitter partciles most highlighters have.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer - Everyone needs a good flat brown matte bronzer!

Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation - This has unbelievable coverage. So much so that I would never wear it alone purely because it would be far too much and could end up looking mask like. It's incredibly pigmented so I pop a TINY squirt in with my mat lumiere on nights out or days when I want full coverage. I have no doubt this will last me forever.

Topshop Cream Blush in Flush - I've been using this pretty much everyday lately, it leaves a lovely pink flush to the cheek and blends seamlessly into the skin. Alone it leaves you fresh faced and pretty, teamed up with a powder blush it wont budge all day!
