I thought I would do a page on make up, just so that if anyone would like me to review a product or tell them what products I use I can do so on this page! 🙂
I’ve had a few requests on instagram about what eye shadows I use, to be honest as much as I would love to buy every Naked palette there is, my bank account wont fund it (cry). Right now I use Make Up Revolution Palettes, which I find are just as good, and there are so many beautiful shades. My favorite palettes at the moment are Iconic 1, Iconic 3 and FLAWLESS, they have lots of nice nudes and browns and matts and gold’s, because I have blue eyes I prefer to use browns and gold’s as this makes the blue stand out, they also are very good blending colors. I also use a lot of Eye Shadow Dust Pots, you can get these at most make up counters, the ones I use right now are MUA and Barry M – however they aren’t as pigmented so you need a strong base color to make these stand out, I like them as they are very glittery.
So most make up lovers will probably use this already but for those of you that don’t I suggest you start! Its called a beauty blender, you can use this to apply foundation, or contouring, its brilliant. My favorite is the Real Techniques Beauty Blender as it has a flat edge, this is good for blending my contour under my eyes and also on my forehead, the best way to use a beauty blender is to slightly dampen it before use, this makes it softer and its less likely to retain any of your actual make up on the sponge.
Tatcha products are amazing, they are pricey but so worth it. If like me you can get very dry skin, especially during the cold months, this is a great product! Its Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil, this can be used on your hair and body. I use it on my face and dry areas, such as knees, elbows, ankles. I also use this on my Real Techniques Beauty Blender, as an alternative to water as it moisturizes my skin whilst I apply my make up, it literally leaves my skin feeling like butter and my face looking flawless. I’m actually going to do a review on this product soon so look out for it!
