Today’s post is all about my holy grail items for skin, make-up and hair! Hope you enjoy..
Collection Lasting Perfection
Who doesn’t love this concealer??! I cannot do my makeup without it and I also love the colour correcting ones. I have no more to say on it as you’ve probably heard it all before but I love it. You need to buy it and it is a staple in my makeup bag.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I love this powder for setting my foundation when I’m not baking (which is 99% of the time). I also love this powder as although I use it mainly for setting, it also has good coverage if I want a lighter foundation day. Most people use a translucent powder to set their make-up but due to my skin I need the extra coverage!
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
I am obsessed. It creates the perfect contour for me and is just a dream to blend out. I’ve tried other contour powders and creams but nothing compares to Hoola. Its quite pricey (£28 I think) but it lasts AGES and here’s a tip – buy yours at the airport, I paid £20 for this! You can see how long it lasts – I’ve had this for 6 months and wear it whenever I wear makeup and it looks virtually brand new! It’s worth investing in I think.
Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil
In all honestly, all of Benefit’s eyebrow products are my holy grail! In my collection, I have Goof Proof, Gimme Brow, Ka-Brow, Ready Set Brow and High Brow from their last release and I use a combination of them all to get my perfect brow. I love Goof Proof as I can use it lightly when I just want to fill my brows in, or use more for a more full face makeup look. If you haven’t tried it, you need to!
Unique1 Hair Spray
I wa introduced to this spray when my Auntie opened her hair salon about 5 years ago and ever since, I have not gone a day without it. As it says, it is an ‘all in one’ treatment where it aims to fight 10 different hair issues from frizz and detangling to caring for your split ends and a heat defence spray. I save so much money as I have 10 products on one and that, is ideal! It also comes in a coconut scent and I love that for summer.
The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Face wash, Scrub and Mask
This has saved my skin. Thanks to my PCOS, I get quite bad spots when I’m off my pill and this wash keeps them at bay. Now my skin is better – not perfect, I don’t think it ever will be – I use this along with the Simple face wash, as the tea tree can be quite harsh if I use it twice a day, every day! But when my skin is bad, it clears it up within a few days and I finally feel like I’ve found the product for me, just 8 years too late!
Vaseline Lip Balm
Normally I have this lip balm in a stick but it can’t find it anywhere – its probably in a random bag knowing me but I love using this on my lips. I’m allergic to Shea butter, which is found in 99% of moisturising products (cry) so there is little choice for me in the lip balm section. I use the vaseline every day to keep my lips hydrated – especially in cold weather and it also has SPF 15 in it and I’m all about the sun protection! It can get greasy but I’m used to it know and I love me a good moisturised lip!
