Make-Up Favourites

Here’s a sneak peak inside my make-up bag.

I have a very pale English skin tone with naturally blonde hair so it;s often difficult to find bases and colours to suit me, but here are a few of my favourites:

Make-Up Revolution Palette in Iconic 3. I love these colours, and apparently its a great copy of an Urban Decay palette.

Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude Bronze. Doesn't last all that well, but lots of lovely muted colours.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52 Vanille. I didn't wear foundation for years, but chronic illness requires a mask, and this looks 100% natural.

Clinique Chubby  Stick in 07 Super Strawberry - a glossy lip balm with a dash of colour.  Bourjois Colour Boost  Glossy Finish Lipstick in 04 Peach on the Beach, claims to last up to 10 hours, I've found it lasts a good couple, which is good for me.

And here’s one I don’t really like, and I feel should be far better for the money:

Benefit They're Real mascara - it transfers onto my brow bone and leaves inky smudges, even on cold days. Not impressed!!

So there you have it for now, these are the tools used to make me look semi-human again, and I think they work quite well.

What are your experiences with these products?

As always, I love hearing from you so pop by and say hello!
