Welcome back my little loves. Today I’m going to be collaborating with the lovely Shannon at shannonclare.co.uk for our top 5 Holy grail products. Go and check this beauty out, she does some fabulous beauty and skincare posts, as well as a good old wish list – some of my favourites! So without further delaying, let’s get into my 5 Holy grail products (none of these are likely to surprise anyone).
Of course, my one true love was going to be featured in this post, did you expect any less? The bareMinerals original foundation is the OG of mineral foundations, it provides such amazing coverage without your skin feeling weighted down by thick foundations. It comes in a HUGE assortment of shades for all skin tones and gives you a beautiful, flawless looking face.
I first discovered this little gem when I developed acne when I left uni. It was a vicious cycle as covering my acne made it worse and in turn I would wear more makeup up. This foundation contains natural ingredients which your skin genuinely needs and craves. A foundation that’s good for your skin, you heard me right.
I’ve raved about this bad boy so much I even dedicated an entire post just to express my love. Click HERE to see the original post where I go into masses of detail. However, the bottom line is the Stila ‘Stay All Day’ Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner it’s jet black, the application is perfect and so easy, and there’s no smudging or transfer throughout the day. What else could you possibly be looking for in a liquid eye liner?
Again, this is another of my OG products. I have used and loved this eyeliner pencil for as many years as I’ve been wearing makeup. I used to save my pocket money for it, the love is that real. The Estee Lauder ‘Double Wear’ Stay-In-Place eye pencil is the only eye pencil I’ve found that will transfer to my water line and stay there. It doesn’t make my eye water when I put it on and it just lasts and last. It truly is a miracle. And did I mention it comes with a smudger to create those flawless looking smokey eyes? Well it does.
My Instagram account has been absolutely saturated with this beautiful lipstick. Stevie K is an Australian brand that is soon launching in the UK and I cannot even put into words how gorgeous their lipsticks are. Creamy, hydrating, long lasting and highly pigmented to name a few. The shade ‘King Kylie’ is the most stunning nude shade I’ve ever come across. And when the company launches worldwide, form an orderly queue as they really are magic.
I think the world and his wife have heard about the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Well the rumours are true, it really is the best out there. It essentially acts as a base to apply your eyeshadow, making it easier to created beautiful blended looks. And it also acts as super glue, so once you have created your desired look, it’s not going anywhere. It is a must in my makeup bag and the only thing I reach for when an eyeshadow mood strikes.
And there it is, I hope you’ve found some inspiration in my makeup must haves. What are your makeup must haves?
