Current Favourites!

Hello! Today I'm going to be sharing my current makeup favourites that I've had for quite a while now and have been loving so much recently!





The products:

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics: It's probably no surprise that this product is YET AGAIN in another blog post. I'd definitely have to say this is hands down my favourite eyeshadow palette. Even though the colours are rather basic colours, they are still really unique shades. I personally love matte eyeshadows as appose to shimmery eyeshadows. This palette just does it all for me, you can create any look that you like with this palette whether it's a day eye makeup to a dramatic smokey eye. I've basically been using this palette non stop since I got it for Christmas, NO WORD OF A LIE. 
Lanolips 101 Ointment: I have a really difficult time finding lip balms that are genuinely good and moisturising. A lot of lip products tend to dry out your lips more, so I've started opting for a thicker formulation, like this product. It moisturizes and smooths my lips instantly, and keeps them that way for quite a while!

Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner: This is such an amazing product. I like to use this to do a little flick on the outer corner of my eyes and I also like to push this product into my upper lash line just to line it! I love how pigmented this product is and it's incredibly affordable.

L'Oreal Color Riche Matte "640 Erotique": I definitely have a thing for matte makeup products, this lip product is the exact meaning of a "my lip colour but better", it's a darker brown-pink nude, and it's surprisingly moisturising too which sometimes matte lipsticks aren't!

Cargo Eyeshadow "Pasadena": This is a bit of a weird eyeshadow colour huh? But that's exactly why I love it! I love putting this in my crease with a bit of Frisk from the Naked Basics 2 Palette, and this creates a beautiful warmth in the crease. (I then put the colour Cover all over my lid and this creates a really pretty wearable smokey eye.) This shadow has a slight sheen to it, but it's more on the matte side and the sheen isn't very noticeable at all.

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation "SMP01 Ivory": I bought this product whilst I was on my holiday in Cyprus in August and I've been inlove with it till this day. I've never really liked the feeling of foundation on my skin, it's just a weird pet peeve of mine, I just hate knowing it's on my skin? (don't ask, I can't even answer it myself!) So I thought I would try out a powder foundation instead, so I just bought it there and then. My skin isn't perfect so I do use my MAC Studio Fix Concealer in NW20 on my under eyes and any blemishes and then I pat this powder on my skin and it's just amazing, it has really lovely coverage. You can built this coverage up, if you wear this powder alone the coverage will be fairly light coverage, but I wear concealer under so the coverage looks like a medium coverage. 
*You can buy this product off of Amazon for under £10*
