I see these posts all of the time and love seeing all the products within them. I use all of my products in my bag nearly every day and without that little Cath Kidston bag I would look a little bit different. Today I will be showing you all of my products with a little review besides each one. I’m looking to find better products in the future but I’m a little daunted by experimentation! If you have any recommended products contact me and let me know as I’d love to hear from you!
Starting off with the bag. I got this lovely little beauty from my favourite bag store Cath Kidston at Christmas. I’m a huge lover for Cath Kidston and flowers and this is the perfect size for fitting all of my favourite and daily beauty products.
For my face I use only three items (or four if you’re lucky!) When I first apply makeup I start with a light moisturiser most of that time I use a ‘simple’ moisturiser as I suffer from dry skin in the mornings. Once that’s applied I add either Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream if my skin is a bit spotty or dry or I just go straight with Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation which I adore! It’s one of the only foundations I have used that covers my uneven skin tone and the few blemishes I get.
After that I apply Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. The cheapest powder I have ever used and probably one of my favourites! I use this product in conjunction with my Fearne Cotton brush from her 2014 Christmas range. I don’t like to use my real techniques set unless I’m wearing makeup for a certain occasion. I don’t think it’s necessary to use my favourite brushes every day for sixth form where people probably don’t notice! The final product I add for my every day look is Sugarbomb from Benefit. I have reviewed this product and several others is the Benefit Haul blog post from last Friday!
Moving onto my eyes… I like to do my eyebrows first because they’re my favourite thing to do. I first comb them through using an old Rimmel spooly. Followed by Brow Zings that without fail I use every day and it’s probably my favourite beauty product that I have ever used! My eyebrows aren’t always on fleek but when I use this product they become a little bit closer to being brilliant! From there I add my Fearne Cotton eye shadow primer to both lids even when I’m not wearing eye shadow because it’s a lovely natural colour. Then I curl my lashes using free curlers I received from Cosmo magazine. My tip of the week is to heat curlers before using them. It’s like straightening your hair. You get a better curl when the curler is hot! Just heat for a few seconds with a hair dryer and use as normal. I also keep a pair of Superdrug fine tweezers in my bag to get to those hard to reach hairs. My hair is so dark so I have to watch out for those nasty hairs all the time!
Then I would usually apply the Benefit they’re real eye liner in a thin motion over my eye lids. I like thin eye liner rather than a thick motion because it looks more natural. Finally I add the they’re real mascara which has no clumps and truly defines my lashes. I don’t use a setting spray but if I’m acting like a true beauty goddess a simple spray of hairspray does the same trick!
