I love to use any makeup pouch with a bit of transparency so that I can see where all of my products are. It makes it way easier, especially if you’re touching up in a rush.
Moisturiser is my skin’s best friend. I use the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion in the morning, it makes my foundation look way better! At night, I use the belif Moisturizing Bomb – so good.
My moisturiser and SPF act as my primer! My favourite foundation is the Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation – a very suiting name, I must say. I don’t use concealer everyday, but the Maybelline FitMe Concealer is my go-to, so affordable as well.
My all-time favourite blush and bronzer has to be the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso and their Baked Bronzer in Soleil, such classics. My favourite highlighter is Oh Darling by MAC – for that golden glow, and for contour, I use the Kat Von D Contour Palette.
I always go for a warm-tone brown eyeshadow look. My favourite palette is the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette – but if I’m being honest, I love to just wear my bronzer as eyeshadow! The Wet and Wild Megaliner is my fave for giving me that classic cat-eye. My everyday lash duo is the Shu Uemura Lash Curler followed by any waterproof mascara by Maybelline.
Oh gosh this one’s going to be tough… I buy so many lip products it really isn’t healthy, but I’ll have to say my all time favourite lippies are Black Honey by Clinique, Brooklyn by Buxom, Soar by MAC, and White Russian Gloss by Buxom.
SOMETHING YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT:
Some kind of lip balm – preferably a tinted one. Keep them lips lush, girl!
TOP THREE BEAUTY TIPS YOU ALWAYS STICK TO:
Always set your foundation, let your lash glue get tacky, and always stay moisturised and hydrated!
