I mentioned a few posts back that I wanted to do a post on my beauty products and since I have a routine kind of down I thought I'd talk about what I use all the time. In the above photo is my small collection of brushes, most of them are from the Manicare Artiste Collection, their smaller brushes are good but I find that the larger ones tend to shed a bit. But I'll continue to buy these brushes as they are quite reasonably priced for me.
This is a picture of the mascara's and eyeliners that I use. The green tube is a mascara that I've just gotten today from Revlon so I am yet to try it, I usually use the Rimmel mascara which is in the blue tube I found that it gave my eyelashes a lot of volume but tended to clump them together. The liquid eyeliner I use is on the far right and it has a really nice colour and application. I usually use a Revlon eyeliner pencil, yet since it's getting a bit small I've just bought a Revlon crayon, I had a quick test of it today and it is amazing, a great dark colour and stays on the inner rim of my eye well. I sometimes use a coloured eyeliner like white or gold to highlight the inner part of my eye close to the bridge of my nose (I don't know what it's called) the gold is from Napoleon Perdis and the white is by Chi Chi, and both apply really well.
I've just started testing an omSHE pure magic primer to see if it had anny effect on my make up lasting throughout the day, I haven't really noticed much of a change but it is the nicest thing to put on my skin, it is so soft and doesn't even feel like a cream. I use a MAC concealer which has been quite decent, but needs to be layered quite a bit before it has a big effect covering up dark circles under my eyes. I just got fitted with a Revlon foundation and it has been working really well so far, I only need a small amount to cover my face, if I use too much it only makes my face look cakey.
I occasionally use a MAC bronzer which is amazing and natural. The main eyeshadow I use is from Sportsgirl, it is not very pigmented so it doesn't give a full coverage when I want it, but it is really nice if you want a subtle look throughout the day. I use a Napoleon Perdis finishing power sometimes but combined with my foundation it makes me look too overly powdered, I think I need to start using a brush or change the sponge applicator. My blush is from Nutrimetics and I really love the colour, it gives me a nice natural look.
For make up remover I use the brand Face of Australia which has been working so much better than these wipes I used to use. For a brush cleaner I use the one produced for my brushes, it works decently, but my goodness it smells so strong, definately use in a ventilated area!!
Let me know in the comments what your favourite make up brands are and what your favourite product is! I'm always looking to try new products to find the perfect ones!
