Primer is such an important step in my makeup routine, because without it I would probably looks like a panda. I’ve been very loyal to my Urban Decay Primer Potion for years and the times I have strayed, the products just didn’t live up. These days I’ve been really enjoying all my Asian products, so thought I would pick up a couple from Korea and put them to the test. First up, Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer!
I’ve been a follower of the UK beauty YouTuber and blogger Fleur de Force for a long time and have been a big fan of her line of lashes with Eylure that came out a while back. So when she announced she was also doing brow products, I thought why not? I was out of brow gel anyways so picked up the brow palette and brow tamer in medium at a trip to boots.
I’ve got quite a few holidays coming up, starting with Marrakech, Morocco! As someone who has such a large cosmetics collection, I find it incredibly difficult to pack lightly when I travel. I love options, but I also hate lugging around too much so I thought I would share what makes it into my travel makeup bag!
I never have been one of those people who are good about consistently putting nail polish on and when I do it never lasts that long and I always manage to mess it up. The best top coat I have used to date is still one of the beauty world’s cult favorites around the world, Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Coat.
There has been so much hype around the Artis brushes in the last year and so many dupes popping up everywhere I really wanted to try one out. I finally bit the bullet, did a bit of research and got one!
My favorite type of foundation is one that just looks like your skin – “so skin-fusing and natural that it can’t be felt, can’t be seen”. I never got a chance to try Guerlain’s original formula but the reformulated foundation, released in late 2016, is right in the realm of what I like.
I’m definitely having a moment with Chanel lip products these days. Here’s another duty free purchase from over the holidays from Chanel’s Rouge Coco range of stylo lipsticks. Less of a statement colour than my previous purchase, but of course it’s something I ‘need’ in my collection.
I’ve had my eye on Anastasia’s Dip Brow Pomade for ages, but I didn’t feel their initial release’s colours had any that would be cool enough for my black hair. Eventually they released a whole new range of colours including the one I decided to go with, Granite.
