Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
I am a big Clarins fan and I was given a couple of tubes of the beauty flash balm for Christmas. I like to use this on a day to day basis as a moisturizer/primer. When I have this on I always get comments about how good my skin looks and it really helps my make up to last all day.
Revlon Colorstay for Dry/Normal Skin – fresh beige
I like a heavy coverage for my foundation and this definitely does the job. It doesn’t dry out my skin and is really long lasting.
YSL Touche Eclat – no 2
Essential for hiding the dark circles under my eyes. I couldn’t live without this!
Sleek I-Divine Palette in Au Naturel
I love this palette as you can probably tell! It contains a range of matte and shimmery shades which are ideal for day or night. At the moment, for a day to day look, I use Nougat in the inner corner of my eye and Honeycomb all over. I occasionally use Noir to line my eye if I want a more defined look.
Benefit High Beam
I have been using this for years to highlight my brow bone. My make up isn’t complete until I have this on!
Benefit Brow Zings – deep
I rarely leave the house without doing my brows but I have run out of the wax, which I really annoying, so I am just using the powder. I wish they gave you more wax as you seem to go through this a lot quicker than the powder. You can use the wax on its own or with the powder for a more defined look.
Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof mascara – black
Out of all of the mascaras I have tried, I always seem to come back to this one. It makes my eyelashes voluminous without weighing them down. Added bonus that it’s waterproof which also means no nasty black flakes under my eye!
Benefit Hoola powder
At the moment I am using a mini sample of this bronzer and I am in love. I will definitely be replacing with the full size version when I run out. It is the perfect shade for contouring and making me look bronzed.
Benefit Coralista powder
I really like coral blushes, great for summer!
Palmers Coco Butter lip balm
Great for keeping my lips silky soft. I prefer lip balms in a stick rather than in a pot as it saves on mess.
What essentials do you keep in your make up bag? I would love to know!
