I thought I would share with you guys what beauty products I use. But firstly, a little disclaimer: This post is not sponsored and no one gifted me any of these items. I have paid for them all myself and am sharing them with you guys because they are genuinely products I believe in. Secondly, I know there might be technically "better" products on the market, these are just what work for me and my budget. So here we go:
Revlon Colorstay foundation, Revlon Grow Luscious mascara, Revlon Colorstay liquid liner blackest black
These three are my absolute essentials and as you can see they're all Revlon. I find Revlon to be the best value for money out of the lower priced brands. The foundation gives the best coverage and lasts all day, the mascara gives me the thickest, fullest and longest looking lashes and I find the liquid liner the easiest to apply.
Maybelline Berry Sorbet blush, Loreal Wear Infinite eyeshadow
When it comes to blush and eyeshadow I don't mind too much what brand I'm using, it's usually just finding the right colour. I prefer peaches and pinks to browns because it always feels like they "brighten" my skin a bit. A little bit of eyeshadow always helps my liquid line go on smoother and stops it from smudging so easily as well.
GHD Miracle Mist conditioning spray, GHD polishing serum
My hair is naturally pretty wavy so it needs a bit of help to stay smooth and in control. I find these work the best to stop the fly-aways but I also use Garnier Fructus smoothing serum from time to time as well. Edit: My husband just reminded me that these actually were gifted to me, but it was a long time ago. I actually would buy these myself and when they run out I intend on replacing them. Just wanted to be honest!
Nina Ricci perfume, Body Shop Vanilla body mist
My two signature smells! Floral and vanilla. I change which I'm wearing all the time but you can guarantee it's always one of these. I'm a little more precious about using the perfume because it cost more, but the vanilla spray is a great day to day smell.
Body Shop strawberry body butter
And body butter to keep my skin smooth.
Those are basically all the products I use on a regular basis although I don't wear them all everyday. I definitely recommend each one of these though! Like I say, I don't spend a fortune on makeup but I have found that these are the items that work best for me with my budget.
