My Top 10 Must Have Makeup Items
For the past 2 years I have been greatly interested in the art of makeup and putting it on myself and others. Due to being young and saving my money, I tend to stick to products I know and trust. These items are holy grails of mine in which I can always fall back on when in doubt.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
Yes I know everyone loves this concealer, but the hype is so real and once converted to AUD is damn expensive however in my opinion worth it. A little bit goes a long way and is very high coverage creating a flawless finish.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation
This foundation can be used on an everyday basis, whether going to lunch or to a wedding. I love it because it is a medium coverage however you can build it up to full coverage and it gives my skin a smooth finish.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil
Honestly I am not the best at doing my brows they tend to be a little crazy at times. The goof proof brow pencil has made it easier to fill them in with the flat slanted wand and the spooly on the end makes it all the more easier.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
A great mascara that adds lots of volume and length to the lashes. I do not like to wear false eyelashes so with this mascara it gives the illusion that my real lashes are the length of falsies.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
It has taken me at least a year to make my eyeliner look presentable and this liner has helped me so much. My wings are still sisters not twins most days but the felt tip makes it a lot easier to make it thinner and make a precise wing.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
The Stila Liquid Lipstick in the shade Patina is hands down my favourite lipstick I have ever used. The formula is very smooth and it does stay all day long while maintaining it's colour. If I am ever in a doubt of which lip colour to match with my eyeshadow, I always choose this colour due to it looking good with everything.
Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow
A recent favourite of mine, I've never used liquid eyeshadow before and it did intimidate me at first, once I put it on my eye I fell in love with it. More pigmented than any other powder eyeshadow I have used and did not budge from my eyes.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
I use the facial spray to refresh my skin, make eyeshadows/highlighter more pigmented and to make my face look less powdery after application. I have also incorporated it into my skincare routine, which helps to moisturise and make my skin feel healthy.
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
A cheap yet awesome product that I love using to give warm glow to my face. It isn't too pigmented which I find good in a bronzer so to build up the desired look.
Australis AC On Tour
Another cheap item that I love which you can buy from any drugstore in Australia and a great alternative to many high-end contour kits. It contains contour, bronze, highlight and brightening shades which are perfect for shaping the face and blend out easily.
