Current Makeup Favourites

 

While I was doing my makeup the other day I realised that I have been automatically reaching for the same products every single morning.

I'm really close to running out of this product, but no wonder because since I got it in March I have been reaching for it almost every day.
I like a medium to full coverage when it comes to foundations but in the summer it's nice to mix a bit of a glow in your base which also thins out the formula, making it more summer appropriate.
It also works as a very subtle highlight, more of a golden sheen really on the cheekbones if you're more of a fan of the natural lit from within look than the blinding highlighter stripes across the cheeks. I like the chic rose gold packaging which is not only beautiful but also practical with the pump and it's great for travelling.


I have a small collection of the Butter Glosses but Tiramisu has been my go-to shade the past few months. It is very comfortable on the lips, not sticky at all, and the colour is a lovely browny pink shade which is not too far from my natural lip colour so I can easily apply the gloss without a mirror. And last but not least, it smells like cake! It's a summer staple in my bag!

Now, this Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick is almost identical to the above-mentioned lip gloss in shade and I actually love using them together. This is a creamy, pinky-nude shade that is comfortable and perfect for everyday wear with or without a gloss on top. I like to add a bit darker nude liner to give a bit more definition to the lips. Again, the packaging is gorgeous.


I love concealers, but my main problem is finding a light enough shade for my undereye area that is not drying, has decent coverage and will make me look more awake. This does it all.
The formula is hydrating and as it has more of a pinky undertone instead of yellow it gives an illuminating, brightening effect. I only use this under the eyes though, for blemishes I prefer a higher coverage, matte formula. They only have three shades and I have the lightest in Ivory which works perfectly for me.
The only negative is the doe foot applicator which doesn't pick up enough product and is quite hard. Feels like there is not enough fluffy material on the wand which would grab the product. Other than this small issue the concealer is perfect!

I got this baked bronzer when I was visiting Hungary earlier this year and it wasn't a love at first sight kind of a situation.
I think I used the wrong brush with it and always ended up with too much product on my face. I tried different brushes and now I use the Real Techniques Blush Brush and a much lighter hand with it.
It is very pigmented so getting rid of excess product on the brush before touching the face is a must. I use a light touch of it on my cheeks, a bit on my temples, across my nose, a bit on my chin and it warms up my super pale ghost face really nicely. Afterall it's summer, right?

This mini palette has two shades of brow powders and a brow highlight. They came out in three shades and I picked up the Light palette.
I tend to mix the two brow shades and just go with it really. When I don't have time to fiddle around with a pencil and want to be out the door quickly this is the perfect product. I use an angled brush to fill in the sparse areas of my brows and it's done so quick!
I think it's more suitable for those who just need to fill in their brows here and there and not go from nothing to Cara Delevingne.
The highlight shade doesn't get much use from me so I would rather have another colour that is a bit more greyish, MAC Omega kind of shade or just the two existing colours for less.


Have you tried any of these products? What are your current makeup favourites?
