MAKEUP: Current Favourites

Hi beauties! I’ve been reaching for a lot of the same products over the past month in the mornings so I thought I’d share what’s been holding my attention. Some of these are old and some more new but I thought it’s worth showing the older products that I still love and use to this day.

CLINIQUE Even Better Glow Foundation

This is a newbie to the market and my collection and I’ve been super impressed with it. It really does have a skin like finish, lasts quite well and has skincare benefits. It feels lightweight on the skin but coverage quite well. You could sheer it out for a light coverage or it will also give you a medium coverage depending on your application and coverage preference. It’s also not a big, heavy bottle which makes it great to throw in your bag or travel with.

BENEFIT Precisely My Brow pencil

This is probably my 3rd or 4th one of these so you can tell I’m a fan! It’s has a fine tip which makes it easy to draw in little brow hairs or just fill in the little areas that you want so you won’t end up with a big block brow (which I personally am not a fan of)


When I first say pictures of this I was a big “meh” about it. How many neutral shadows does one person need? But then I was lucky enough to receive one to try. I’m a CT fan generally so I knew the formula would be lovely and easy to work with but I wasn’t expecting to reach for it as such as I have but it’s been a perfect day-to-day go to palette where I don’t have to think too much but I can still create a variety of looks with it. The packaging is beautiful but not too heavy. This one could be a good one to put on your list for Santa or to give as a gift.

ESSENCE I Heart Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara

Another old faithful that I’ve spoken about time and time again for the past few years. It’s an absolute bargain and really pumps up the lashes. If you like a very thin, barely there coating of mascara this is NOT the mascara for you.

SOAP & GLORY Solar Powder bronzer

This was a YouTube-made-me-buy-it purchase a while back in the UK and fro some reason it’s made it’s way back to the top of my most reached for bronzers. It’s great if you have fairer skin and blends beautifully.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Film Star Bronze & Glow

This is probably my third one of these. As you can see the bronzer/contour section is long gone but I’ve been loving using the highlighter as an every day option. I have a fresh one of these in my pro kit for clients. It’s a winner!

RIMMEL #Insta Fix & Matte Powder

I’ve been a fan of the RIMMEL Stay Matte powder for years. I think it’s one of the best translucent pressed setting powders going, let alone at the drugstore. This guy is even better! It really does set the makeup and keep you matte but it also seems to give a real blurring, pore filling, smoothing type effect to the skin. Impressed!

CLINIQUE “01 Nude Pop” lipstick & “07 Intense Blush” pencil

These shades are a dream for me! They’re some of the most perfect everyday lip colours I’ve come across. Some days I’ve just been wearing the liner along, others the lipstick alone and sometimes together. I’m hooked!
