After nearly a year of beauty blogging I’ve realised that I have never actually mentioned which makeup items I use on a daily basis. I do change my mind quite a lot and get bored with products more often than I should, but these are the items I’m currently using and the total cost.
I treated myself to this for my birthday and I’m still undecided on whether I like it or not. Some days it seems to look better than others, but for £32.50 I am persevering with it. I’m going to write a full post on this soon as part of my “Help I Gave Into The Hype” series.
A good brush is important to get the best out of a foundation and this one by Zoeva is perfect. It’s easy to use and not too expensive either!
These have been mentioned as dupes for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushers. I’ve never tried them, so I can’t comment, but, I do love the Max Factor version. The combination of the different colours and the shimmer create a really pretty look.
I have to admit that I’ve been using this to apply my blusher. It probably is better suited to highlighting and contouring, but until I get around to buying a proper blusher brush I’m using this. The brush is really soft and feels lovely to use.
I wrote about this in my “Why I Am A Gel Eyeliner Convert” post. I wouldn’t use any other type of eyeliner now and this one works well!
I know everyone raves about this mascara and it totally deserves the love it gets. It’s the best mascara I’ve ever used and I can’t see myself changing it anytime soon. I wrote about this in my “Help I Gave Into The Hype” post and I said I wasn’t completely in love with it- I’ve changed my mind- I am!
This changes daily, but one I have been obsessed with recently is the Lord and Berry Twistick in the shade “Must Have”. I included it in my Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks.
Total Cost= £87.47 (I have divided the cost of the Real Techniques Core Collection by 4 to get the value of the contour brush).
So those are my daily makeup products and the total cost. I am a little surprised at how much I’ve spent, especially as I haven’t included any skincare or primers in the list. Do you use any of these products? How much do you think you spend on your daily makeup?
