Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I don’t usually post on a Sunday, but last night I really wanted to film a new YouTube video. So I did! I wasn’t sure what to film and I haven’t filmed in over two months. So a favourites video seemed like a good place to get me back into the swing of it!
It has been ages since I last did a favourites! The first thing I wanted to share was my favourite foundation, the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation. I did a first impressions a few months ago and since then I have been loving it! I have the shade 06 Vanilla and it matches my skin perfectly, it doesn’t oxidise or cake on my skin when I layer it over certain parts of my face. As I’m not much of a foundation kind of girl, this foundation has definitely changed my mind on that! It’s perfect for an everyday look or a glam look! I love that I can customise the coverage!
Next is another NYX product, the #NoFilter face powder. I have the shade Alabaster. It’s perfect for everyday setting my concealer under my eyes as well as lightly dusting it over my forehead and chin. It doesn’t crease under my eyes or settle into dry patches.
Makeup Geek Contour Pan in Bad Habit is something that has been in my collection for a little while and at first I wasn’t too impressed. But the more I have used it the more I enjoy using it. It’s so pigmented that a little goes a long way and the intensity can be built up. It’s perfect for a soft contour or an intense contour, what every floats your boat!
Another face product I am obsessed with using is the Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in the shade Pearl, I did a review of this gorgeous highlight not too long ago and I love it! It applies beautifully to the skin and can be used for a soft glow from within or an intense glow by building it up or using a facial spray to enhance it even further. You can read an in depth review here!
Second to last fave is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in the shade Trooper. This is my first high end eye liner and I am in love! For me it ticks all the boxes: it doesn’t smudge when touched, super easy to use and apply and the biggest tick is that the nib holds product. Most pen eyeliners the nib dries out and it’s harder to get a sharp line. Where as I found this one doesn’t and I can get a really thin sharp line.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a favourites without a lip product! Lime Crime Velvetine in Saint has been my go to colour recently. I love it. It’s a reddy brown and perfect for this season! I love a matte lip and this dark, vampy shade can really amp up a simple makeup look!
