My Make Up Essentials

I thought I’d try something new today and introduce some of my favourite beauty products that I swear by at the moment. Essentially, these products below are what makes my face look slightly more human in the mornings.

In all honesty I’m actually fairly crap at applying make up but I do like trying new products and seeing which ones I fall for.

In my make up bag at the moment are the following…
Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Nude
Laura Mercier secret camouflage concealer
YSL Touche Éclat
Bobbi Brown long-wear cream shadow in Velvet Plum
NO7 amazing eyes pencil in Brown
Lancôme Virtuôse mascara
Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Rouge Orage, no 23

I’ve not yet found the perfect foundation that matches my skin tone and covers my flaws. So, for the meantime I’m trying out this Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser and concealer, which seems to do the trick. It gives a light covering and doesn’t feel too heavy on my skin. My fashion partner in crime strongly recommends Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation, so we’re planning to hit the counters soon.

I love wearing brown on my eyes as it’s a great contrast to my baby blues. Bobbi Brown makes the best eyeshadow ever! Honestly, it’s easy to apply and lasts all day without creasing, which is one of my worst nightmares. The same goes for NO7 eye pencils. They’re smooth and long lasting. My only issue is they’re not so easy to blend, but I can get over that.

As for my Chanel lipstick. I love it. It’s a beautiful creamy red, which instantly lifts my appearance and makes me feel more glam if the rest of face is fairly naked. 

What’s in your beauty bag? What item are you loving right now?
