This post is about the products I go back to again and again. Although I like to mix it up and try new products, I always make sure I have these products stocked up in my make-up bag.

4. Collection 2000 waterproof eyeliner
5. Mac lipstick in Mehr
6. Collection 2000 eyes uncovered palettes
7. Hoola benefit bronzer
8. Benefit Watts up highlighter
9. Real Techniques blending sponge
10. Rimmel ‘Just Let it Go’ eye make-up remover
11. EOS lip balm
12. Urban Decay Naked 2
Bourjois healthy mix foundation comes heavily recommended by so many beauty bloggers, and once you try it, you can tell why! When paired with Bourjois perfect CC cream, your skin appears flawless, but still very natural as the foundation isn’t too matte. Although I tend to stick to MAC studio fix for a night-out out of habbit, Bourjois healthy mix very much rivals the product.
Rimmel accelerator mascara is a product I’ve raved about again and again. If you want natural looking longer lashes, this is definitely your product! I also tend you just use it on my lower lashes for night out looks, just because I don’t like my bottom lashes to be too clumpy.
I’m pretty sure I’ve been using Collection 2000 eyeliner since I was about 15. I’ve tried more expensive products, but for £2.99, if it’s not broke why fix it?
Mehr by Mac has become my go-to colour for about 2 and a half years now. For me it’s the perfect shade of nudey pink. I use the shade on most day and night out looks..it’s just a shame I’ve lost so many of them drunk!
The collection 2000 eyes uncovered palettes have shades that rival urban decay, and at £3.99 it’s worth investing in a few different palettes! All the shades are very pigmented, and I particular love the palette with the bronze gold and brown shades!
Hoola benefit bronzer and Benefit Watts up highlighter are more recent purchases of mine. I rave about these products to anyone that’ll listen! For more a detailed review, check out this post!
The Real Techniques blending sponge has left my foundation brush firmly in my brush pot! I use this sponge for literally everything…I have one for bronzer, and one for foundation and highlighter. I feel like the sponge allows your make-up to appear much more natural, in comparison to brushes. However the new diamond sponge is definitely on my make-up wish list (click here to view), just look how pretty it is!
The Rimmel ‘Just Let it Go’ eye make-up remover and EOS lip balm are necessities in my make-up bag. I originally bought the ‘Just Let it Go’ eye make-up remover to take off the Benefit they’re real mascara. If anyone has used that mascara, you’ll know it’s a nightmare to take off! However this eye make-up remover definitely does the job, and at a fraction of rival brands. The EOS lip balm is another product I can’t live without. I use it under my matte lipsticks, as they tend to dry my lips out. If you use this product a couple of times a day, it’ll do wonders for dry lips!
And lastly, the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 is a product I use everyday. I found every outfit either goes with the gold shimmery shades or the pinker hues. I really couldn’t survive without this palette!
