My Current Everyday Make Up Products



Although I do have a few "holy grail" products in my beauty drawers, I'm constantly trying both new brands and new products so I'm always switching up my routines. Recently, I've been trying out a number of different products, some of which I've been using for ages now and some of which I've only just gotten my little hands on so I thought it was about time I shared them with you. 

First up we have some of the make-up I've been using basically every day for the past few months. The most obvious one here will is the blogger/everyone in the world favourite the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. This is something that I've been using for a long time now after buying into the hype and splurging in the Sephora in Paris during my trip last December and it's safe to say it has changed my life. Okay so maybe that's a slight exaggeration but you know how much of a difference good brows can make right?! I'm not even halfway through it either after using it every day for 6 months so it's definitely worth spending a little extra on in my opinion! It's so pigmented so if you're into the big bold (slug) brows like me, this is the product for you and your brows! 

I've mentioned before that mascara is a product I struggle with. Yeah, I've had loads that I've liked but have I had many that I've loved? Not at all and I'm still searching with all of my beauty might for that mascara I fall in love with. I'm not into falsies (read: I can't put them on right and end up with both eyelashes hanging off my face) so I need something that's going to make my natural lashes look as long and thick as possible. An Urban Decay duo entered my life a few months ago and I have actually really been loving it! The Subversion Primer and the Perversion Mascara are the perfect products to help get long, thick lashes without clogging them up with layers and layers of mascara. I was always a bit sceptical about eyelash primer before actually trying it but it really does make a difference and in my opinion, it's stopped my mascara clogging and leaving clumps and the Perversion mascara actually stays on without bleeding onto my face at all. It is definitely one of my favourite mascaras I've tried! 



For the lips, I have a very interesting product here that I'll admit I was slightly confused by. I stepped out of my traditional liquid matte lipstick bubble and tried the Lancome Matte Shakers, a liquid lipstick that is completely different to anything I've used before. As you can see here, you shake the bottle before you use it to soak the spongey applicator and as the lipstick goes on, it actually feels like more of a gloss. Until two minutes later, it dries into a super pigmented, super bright matte colour and it feels amazing. It's the least drying matte lipstick I've ever used and doesn't leave your lips feeling coated or cracked at all. I mean for me this really is something else as even my favourite matte lipsticks usually dry a little bit. I haven't tried much from Lancome I'll admit but I'm excited to branch out into more of their products! 



As you'll probably have guessed, winged eyeliner is my trademark. Although it is notoriously tricky (a.k.a the bane of my life most mornings) it is my go-to make-up look and it's such a classic, it's hard to stay away from it. I've tried a few liquid liners now but I've never been able to get into the liner pens, mostly preferring to use the pots other than Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner. However, recently I've been using Lord & Berry Eyeliner Pen and it has been an incredible addition for me and it actually makes the pain in the ass wing much easier to do. It's easy to draw on a super sharp wing that isn't patchy at all and that actually stays on all day. Lord & Berry have really impressed me with a few of their products before including their lip pencils but this is my favourite of them all so far! 

Another eye product I have to mention is the Blank Canvas Cosmetics Master Series Palette which I was sent a few months ago now and it is such a staple to have in your make-up kit. The palette features 12 neutral shades (and you know how much us bloggers love a good nude), all vegan friendly, and has the most beautiful range of colours from a light pinky nude to a very dark brown. It's great for creating an everyday natural look and I've found myself reaching for it on work mornings and early days where I want something simple, but effective. The shades are highly pigmented and although I've mainly stuck to the matte shades, the palette does have one shimmery shade that looks beautiful. 



Finally I just have to talk to you about this highlighter. I'm one of those gals who isn't happy until their shining cheekbones can be seen from the moon so when I look for highlighters, I look for really high pigmentation and a glow rather than a glitter. I have so many favourites because I really think that brands are upping their game when it comes to contouring but the one I've been reaching for recently is this Pixi Glow-y Highlighter. I have had this for a while now, at least a few months and I think it's been one of those that I neglected before realising just how good it is. Obviously you can see by dat glow on my cheekbones just how "glow-y" this really is and it is a great one to have in your collection for a really good contour. 

What products have you been loving recently?
