Nars LagunaThis has been a firm favourite of mine for ages. The colour is perfect for contouring the face and adding warmth, without looking orange or muddy. It contains a tiny amount of shimmer, which is visible in the pan but undetectable when on the skin and is just one of the best bronzers I've ever tried!
The powder delivers a soft focus veil across the skin almost like an Instagram filter would. It blurs out fine lines and pores, and does so without looking heavy or cakey on the skin.
Mac Eye ShadowsI know I'm not the only one who loves these! The vast colour range means you can create any make up look you want in a variety of finishes and tones. The shadows are buttery soft and blend like a dream, making them easy to work with and a must have item for any beauty junkie.
Bobbi Brown Blush in 'Coral'
This is my go to blush, it manages to compliment and adapt to any make up look. The rich coral shade leans on the red/natural flush tone on me, warming up my complexion nicely and offering a subtle sheen to the cheeks.
Much like the eye shadows they offer, their lipsticks come in a array of shades and finishes. My personal favourite finishes are the Crème Sheen, Satin and Matte. The colour selection ranges from natural everyday wear, to the extreme for a more high fashion or daring look.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.
This looks natural and skin like when applied and delivers excellent blendable coverage. The finish isn't overly dewy ( which I like) but just looks healthy and lit from within. It's a great foundation to have, perfect for everyday or a special occasion.
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer.
Want high coverage that doesn't crease and lasts all day? Well this is the concealer you need. I tend to use this around the eye area in a lighter shade to my foundation to highlight and contour the face. The concealer easily erases discolouration and is perfect for creating a flawless base.
I never thought I would love a foundation brush as much as I love my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, but this one is a total game changer in my opinion. It distributes my foundation evenly, and quickly delivers a flawless airbrushed finish, while somehow managing to make it look like I'm not wearing anything more than a tinted moisturiser. I don't know how it does it but it's fab!
Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter in 'Light Boost'
This is great at highlighting the face and lightening any dark areas I have. The pen has a slight yellow tone to it which helps to counteract redness making the skin look more even, and by placing it on all the high points of the face makes it appear to have more structure and definition.
