Beauty, My fave things

Top 10 beauty awards

Danielle over at ahappypeach tagged me on her Top 10 beauty awards post ( Thanks Danielle for supplying me with a blog post today πŸ™‚ Without further ado here are my beauty favourites:

1. Mac eyeliner: I used to wear liquid eyeliner but decided it was looking a bit heavy. I went to the Mac stand to look for a lipstick and the girl at the counter was wearing a pretty teal green eyeliner so I brought that and a black one. I wear the black on my top lid and the green one under my eyes. The eyeliner is great as it’s waterproof and stays on all day and goes on really smoothly. Love it!

2. Mac lipstick – I used to wear lip gloss mainly but decided I needed a new boost in the lips department so I brought a coral lipstick from Mac, I thin it’s called Precious. It really brightens my face.

3. Blusher – I use Rimmel blush – it has three shades and it called Autumn Catwalk I think – it has a pink shade, a coral shade and a glittery pink shade and I brush over all three and it’s a really pretty colour.

4. Foundation – I use Max Factor colour adapt foundation in a natural shade. in summer, I also use Body Shop tinted moisturizer as sometimes foundation is too heavy and when I’m tanned I don’t really need it. Usually I’m as pale as Snow White though πŸ™‚

5. Mascara – I’ve always found this is a nightmare to find a god one! I use two at the moment both by Rimmel – one to curl them and one to add a good black colour and it works okay.

6. I have a lot of eye shadows and don’t spend a lot on them. I like a green shade from Benefit or I sue a smoky grey one from Boots 17 range. I also have gold shades, browns, plums and silver for whatever mood I’m in.

7. I use YSL Touche Eclat for the dark circles under my eyes and I think it’s great for covering them and brightening them up.

8. I use Garnier concealer which also treats spots and it’s a great product for covering them up well and getting rid of them quickly. A great find!

9. I have loose powder from Collection 2000 if I need help reducing shine or keeping make up in place. It’s pretty cheap and is really useful.

10. Tools – I use my hands a lot but I do have a big brush for applying blusher, I just got it in Boots it’s not a brand or anything and I have a smaller one for loose powder.

What are your beauty standouts?

  1. I’m currently in the process of revamping my make-up bag as most of my products are tested on animals – apart from my eyeshadows and lipstick! I would love to get the whole of the Urban Decay range… but I’m skint at the moment!


  2. The best under eye concealer I found (and I went through a lot as I permanently have black under eyes) is the one from Mac. It really does its job nicely.
    And Bobby Brown foundation, I don’t like heavy stuff and this one is light yet covers whatever needs to be covered. Together with No7 foundation brush.

  3. Oh boy, I’m so not versed in makeup, LOL! I use mineral foundation, a quick sweep of eye shadow and liner, and bit of mascara. Two minutes and I’m out the door. πŸ˜‰

  4. I just made a notebook from this post…# 1 will be tried this weekend…thanks
    PS: Precious…definitely trying it.

  5. I own exactly one tube of mascara, a stick of eyeliner, a tube of concealer, and 2 lip glosses.

    Wearing makeup isn’t really my thing, mostly because I lack the patience to put it on and take it off. πŸ˜›

  6. I love YSL Touche Eclat. I think I love just saying the name. That’s a great list. Thanks for playing along, it’s it fun to decorate ourselves?

  7. I love my MAC eyeliner! Mine is a plum shade, and I adore it!
    I love MAC lipstick too! I wear a subtle shade called Twig.
    OMgosh, girl! I use YSL Touch Eclat too!
    If we have this much in common, I’d certainly buy the rest of your top 10 items!

  8. I love MAC lipsticks and glosses, but my current fave is YSL Rouge Volupte #1 in nude beige. I usually make my eyes dramatic, so I try to keep the lippie tame. Eyeliner-wise, I always have issues with smudges, but Shu Uemera drawing pencil really stays put. Urban Decay 24/7 is also nice and glides on well, but the 24/7 bit is kind of a lie πŸ™‚

  9. I love your tips and hearing what you use, Vix!! Admittedly, I’ve not been using but the bare essentials since I moved. I figure if I keep them packed up for another month, I shouldn’t really need them at all. But now… well I want to buy some of what you’re using!! πŸ™‚
