Hey guys welcome back to my blog. I’ve been trying to be a lot more consistent with posting and creating content but recently I’ve found myself surrounded with college work and only just managing to write this post today with only my personal statement due and a book to finish. But besides that, after wanting to sleep in that extra 20 minutes instead of doing makeup almost every college morning, here’s the 5 makeup products I take everywhere with me that might just come in handy throughout the day.
1. Clinique Concealer
I’ve been using this for awhile now and it’s one of those concealers that can never disappoint. I blend it in with my fingers so it’s easy to apply while I’m out. It’s the perfect consistency and doesn’t dry out throughout the day and it conceals any sign of dark circles which I am 90% going to have in the morning. Because it’s a concealer, I would recommend getting your perfect shade tested in store first just because I’ve had experience in the past with concealers either being too light or too dark and not performing as well as they should be. An amazing dupe for this concealer which in my opinion works just as good is the e.l.f flawless concealer which is only £5!
2. Estee Lauder’s Flash Illuminator
My love for highlighter is unreal so how could I do a ‘5 makeup products I can’t live without’ post without including my holy grail highlighter. It’s a cream golden highlighter perfect for that bronzed goddess makeup look. You can wear it without foundation for a perfect dewy skin appearance which is sometimes why I apply it halfway through the day to freshen up. But it also looks amazing over foundation for a more glam, going out type look. It’s the perfect balance of not too striking but noticeable enough to make a difference in your face makeup. I love it!
3. Benefit Gimme Brow
Since my brows are just running wild at this point, sometimes to give them a little more tint and a bit more of a shape I apply Benefit’s Gimme Brow to make them look a bit more tidy again, because we all know the bedhead eyebrow look is real. This tinted gel keeps my brows in place all day long whilst giving them a perfect natural appearance so effortlessly, which is why it’s one of my all time favourites right now.
4. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
For some random reason one of my eye’s eyelashes lift a lot bigger and look a lot more volumized than the other one and I’ve always found it hard to find a good mascara that can lift the other ones as good and make them as long and curled. THIS mascara oh my daysss. It’s been my favourite for awhile now and always manages to make my lashes look so much better. On multiple occasions I’ve even been asked if I’m wearing falsies with these on!! I’m definitely going to be re-purchasing.
5. Alpicia Paris Blush Creme
Last but certainly not least – who doesn’t love a blush? I got this one in my glossybox and I have to admit it is pretty hard to get used to and at first I was a bit skeptical about its formula but after a few days of using it, it’s been in my go to selection ever since. It gives a perfect subtle look but a little does go a long way. It’s easily blendable with a makeup sponge or even can be applied with your fingers, so great for on the go too.
Thank you for reading, let me know in the comments what your makeup must haves are and why you love them, I’d love to know!!
