If I Could Only Pick One

Thursday, 11 August 2016

Having read Kelsey's (BeautyByKelsey) blog post on picking one item from each category of makeup, I wanted to also do a post like this. I thought it was a great idea as well as possessing to be challenging which it was.

PRIMER | Clinique Universal Primer - There's an in-depth review on this primer coming up soon but in brief. This is my first primer to own, I know it's bad but due to my sensitive skin, I was unsure about purchasing a primer but ever since having this primer I now understand the hype about priming your face. This Universal Primer is lightweight and clings on to my foundation extremely well, it makes my foundation last all day without letting it slide all over the place.

FOUNDATION | Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer - This liquid foundation is just amazing. I love the coverage that it gives to any complexion, it is extremely brightening as well as intricately hiding away any annoying blemishes on the skin. It's lightweight on the skin and lasts for a very long time.

CONCEALER | LA Pro Girl Concealer - I have been talking about this foundation forever now and to be honest, I don't think I will ever stop. This foundation is extremely high coverage and does a great job of hiding my dark under eyes. This concealer for me is not drying underneath the eyes but can also be worn alone. On days where I would like a bit of coverage but do not want to do a whole face full of makeup, I opt for this concealer to brighten up my face.

POWDER | Collection Sheer Loose Powder - Having bought this loose powder only a few months ago, I use it almost every day. With a damp beauty blender, this powder reaches its full potential. I've realised that applying this foundation with a brush makes it look patchy but a beauty blender ensures that your makeup is bullet proof and effortless.

EYEBROWS | Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Promade - I was honestly stuck between this product and the Sleek Brow Stylist. I still can't solely pick, but I've realised that this promade is just amazing. You can get an over dramatic eyebrow look or a natural look with this promade, it's so quick to apply which you wouldn't think because it's a gel-like promade. With a small angled brush, filling in your eyebrows takes you roughly about 1 minute on both eyebrows.

EYELASHES | Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - My favourite drugstore mascara. It lengthens my eyelashes well and the brush coats your lashes easily. For an affordable price, this is always one of my drugstore go-to's.

EYESHADOW | Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette - I never used to love eyeshadow because I was always rubbish at applying it. But I am slowly improving, on an everyday basis, this palette is full of those everyday colours with a beautiful inner corner eyeshadow.

I really enjoyed writing this post, despite, how hard it was I loved it. YOU should try this.

If you could only pick one product from each category above, what would yours be?
