MY CURRENT HIGH-END EVERYDAY FACE


Do you ever get those days where you just feel like you want to treat your face to some luxury makeup? Like the majority of people, I have to save up hard if I want to buy that Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, so when I have my stash of luxury goodies (albeit my 'stash' is a little on the smaller side) and apply them, I just feel in more of a 'let's kick some ass' mood.

So, what current luxury products do you use when you're in that mood? I hear you ask. Well, let me share them with you...

  • Benefit Porefessional Primer
The classic primer. It smoothes and preps the skin for flawless foundation application.

  • Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
A gorgeous, buildable coverage that gives me a bright, dewy look. I use the colour Montblanc although when I'm wearing fake tan it's too light for me. This is one of my favourite foundations of all time and it lasts me FOREVER. I highly recommend that you try this if you've got normal/combination/dry skin.

  • Mac Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer
This is perfect for when my skin is having those 'I literally hate you' days. It lasts really well and covers up acne/spots perfectly, it's just a little too heavy to put under the eyes!

  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
My baby, my first Naked palette. I often opt for a pretty basic eye, so I use the colour Foxy as a base, followed by my Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot (see below).

  • Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot
I use Vintage Selection, which is my favourite. It's a dusky pink/rose colour and compliments my skin tone really well.

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator
I've fallen in love with this highlighter since I received it for my birthday. It's the colour Riviera and I often use it as both a blush and highlighter. Read the in depth review on it here.

  • Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani Cheek Palette
This palette gorgeous. I often use O.C as a bronzer currently, as it's more matte and I can wear it with a light application of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator without it being too much. I also did a more in depth review on this product here.

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
This pencil is perfect for quick, everyday brows. It gives your brows a natural look and I'm obsessed.

  • YSL Babydoll Mascara
Originally an impulse buy when I wanted to treat myself in John Lewis, I'm now in love with this mascara. I try not to use it too often because it was on the pricey side for me but I would use it every day if I could. This lengthens and separates my lashes and I LOVE that look at the moment. The only thing I've noticed is that it dries out quite quickly compared to my drugstore mascaras.

  1. Love your photography! That MAC Paint Pot looks so pretty. I've never invested in one, but I'll add Vintage Selection to my ones to consider :-)

  3. I love treating myself to luxury make-up days! You're right, I definitely do feel better even though there isn't much of a difference from my favorite drugstore products lol. I need to use my Naked Basics palette more!

  4. Nars Sheer Glow and the ABH Brow Wiz are holy-grail products for me, I just can't fault them! I really need to get my hands on that UD blush palette before it disappears off the shelves!
