Some All Time High End Favourites
NARS SHEER GLOW... Since the first day I picked up this bottle of goodness, it has been true love ever since. Seriously guys and gals, everything about it beats any other foundation. I've never been a fan of the matte foundations so the radiant, glowing finish makes this my new best friend. Coverage wise, I would say this is medium, I wouldn't say it was a sheer coverage but it doesn't give as much coverage as say Estee Lauder Double Wear does. Having a pay off of concealing any blemishes, covering dark circles and giving an over glow, Sheer Glow is a miracle worker. The consistency is super light so the application is effortless and it blends like an absolute dream. I find with a brush it is hard to achieve a really flawless canvas where everything is blended in seamlessly so I actually apply this with my fingers and it gives flawless, airbrushed looking skin with a decent coverage. NARS have ticked all the boxes with this one and is a foundation I really purchase over and over, fo sho.
NARS LAGUNA BRONZER... I didn't think it was possible to have such a perfect cool toned, natural looking bronzer with immense staying power until my good friend Laguna came into my life. Another product NARS have absolutely kicked ass with and another product you should all be adding to your baskets right now. You know you get those products that you can just see everyone loving? Well this is one of them. The matte, warmish, medium cool shade has been created to suit all skin tones and works perfectly as an all over bronzer or you can use is as a contour shade and lightly dust it in the hollows of your cheeks for killer cheek bones.
ANASTASIA CONTOUR KIT... I've spoken about this soooo many times on JHM now, it had a well deserved place in my Feb Favourites and Products Worth The Splurge. This is by far the best beauty buy I have ever made and is the one product that really does transform my over all makeup look. The 6 powders are buttery, pigmented and blend-able giving me a sculpted face and some serious cheek bones. For everyday contour I use the shade fawn which is a natural cool toned brown and to set my under eye concealer I love a light dusting of Banana to keep everything looking bright and set in place. This is such an ideal palette for anyone, contour experts or contour newbies, the powders are so easy to work with and don't make you look like you've just wiped mud down the side of your face...
KEVYN AUCOIN EYE SHADOW... I have recently become a complete eye shadow junkie and don't go a day without wearing one, whether it's a natural smokey eye or something as easy as a champagne colour shadow stick, I am always wearing something and have recently been absolutely loving this beautiful soft gold shade. If you're an eye shadow girl and like something easy, glamorous and glowing eyes then you need to get your hands on one of these.
DOLCE & GABBANNA LIPSTICK... For me, every girl needs a D&G lipstick in their life. The luxurious gold packaging, the creamy formulas, high pigmentations, longevity and the parma violet scent is to die for. Have I persuaded you yet? For an everyday pink lip I am loving Rosebud; an intense rose pink which is hydrating and has a beautiful shine finish. If you're a dark lip kinda gal then Dolce & Gabbana offer an incredible selection of plums and burgundy's but the shades that really made me fall in love and are totally awesome? The reds. From dark reds to bright true reds and even orangey toned reds, if you're looking for a new red lipstick then D&G is the place to go.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK... The lip liner that everyone talks about, the lip liner that took over 2014 and the lip liner I love. I am an absolute advocate of the whole perfectly lined, plumped up lips thing we all have going on at the moment and Charlotte Tilbury has made it a whole lot easier with this neutral pink liner. The lip cheats are incredibly smooth and creamy with a soft velvet finish. Oh and they have an incredible staying power. No complaints.
