Lola's Little Wonders' to do the 'Top Ten Tag', I absolutely love tag posts, so I had to do this as soon as I saw it! Basically, it's to find out your top ten fave beauty products, if you could only have one of each in your make up bag! I love posts like this, as it makes me want to try all of the products that people would have in their top ten, if they had just one option. So, without going on too much, here are my top ten! I'll tag some people at the end, but if you've done this, or would like to do this, definitely leave me your links as I'd love to see your top ten!
My favourite foundation of all time is Benefit's 'Some Kinda Gorgeous' cream foundation, I love the texture and consistency of this as it's so lightweight, but has amazing coverage too. The downside to this is that you don't get a huge amount of product, so it's quite expensive for the amount you get, however for me, it's totally worth it as I'm completely in love with it! It only comes in three shades light, medium and dark and I use medium, so I'm not sure how great it would be on darker skin tones, but if one of them does match your skin, I'd definitely recommend giving this a go if you light a lighter foundation, but still want decent coverage.
My favourite powder ever is MAC's Mineralise Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus. This not only perfectly sets your foundation, but also adds a little extra coverage with a light and completely non-cakey finish - perfect!
Maybelline's 'Fit Me' concealer is my favourite. Similar to the Collection one, it's in a little tube with a wand applicator. It's a creamy concealer, so didn't cling to dry patches and covers both redness and dark circles perfectly. It's a buildable coverage, so it's great for if you only need a little coverage, but buildable if you need more. It's also fairly cheap, which is always a bonus.
Topshop's Powder blushes are my absolute faves and if I could only have one shade, it would be 'Good Girl', which is a light, baby pink, which looks fab with almost any makeup look and with or without a tan. I love the texture of Topshop's Powder blushes and I think they're fab quality for the price.
My all time favourite Bronzer is SmashBox's 'Bronze Lights' in Sunkissed Matte. It's fairly light, but can be built up if you have a tan. It's a fab natural shade, not too orange and completely matte, so it's great for all over bronzing, but also for contouring too.
Topshop's 'Sunbeam' powder highlighter is my favourite as it gives a gorgeous glow to the cheekbones without being too sparkly making you look like a disco ball. You also get a lot of product for the price, so it's great value too!
Without a doubt, Benefit 'They're Real', is without a doubt, my all time favourite mascara. Perfectly separated, volumized and lengthened lashes with no smudging or clumping. Yes, it's hard to remove, but it's a small price to pay for having fab lashes all day long with no smudging or flaking.
8. Eye Shadow
If I had to pick just one eyeshadow, it would be MAC's 'All That Glitters', which most of you will have already heard of, but if not it's a beautiful warm toned gold shade which looks fab worn alone with winged liner. It's perfect for day time and night time, all you'd have to do is switch from a pink or nude lippie to a classic red and you're good to go!
I'll admit, I'm not great at brows and don't do much with mine, but I love Benefit's 'Gimme Brow' in the lighter shade, as it's great for taming brows and keeping them in place all day long.
10. Lip Product
My faveourite lip product of all time is MAC's 'Pure Zen'. It's a stunning nude pink which I think really compliments my skintone, as I'm more warm toned and this lippie is more of a peachy pink than a blue tone, which I love. It's a cremesheen finish, so it had a slight sheen to it, but it's not too glossy or shimmery, which is great, as gloss isn't really my thing. It also lasts for hours on the lips, which is rare for a lighter colour, so that's perfect.
So that's it! Let me know what you think of my top ten!
As I said, I'll probably tag some specific people (probably on twitter), but I tag all of you so let me know if you do this!
