It’s true. I’m one of those people who cannot even go to the corner shop without at least some form of makeup on. I just feel naked without it! If, for any reason, someone was to take away the following three products from me it’s quite likely I would cry.
1. Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation (shade Blondie)
My skin is generally in quite good condition, but because I’m naturally really pale my skin can often look blotchy and red so I always like to start with a good base of foundation. What I love about Lily Lolo is the fact that it’s a mineral powder so you can buff it into your skin and build up a few thin layers to get the coverage exactly where you need it. It’s so easy to touch up during the day as well (although I find it lasts for ages, especially if you also use a finishing powder on top) by just buffing in a wee bit more. You only need to use a little bit of powder to get good coverage, so it lasts for ages too, which is great!
2. Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner
If you asked any of my friends to name one makeup ‘look’ they associated with me, I’m fairly certain they would all say black cat-eye liner. I do my eyes like this about 90% of the time, on its own in the day time and with some pretty eyeshadow for night time. The Rimmel liquid liner is great because it doesn’t have one of those felt-tip nibs but rather an actual little brush, which I find much easier to control. It’s a really dark black colour, a great consistency for easy application and it doesn’t smudge off if you’re wearing it for a long time. Many women would probably say mascara would be more important than eyeliner, but I would much rather give up long lashes if I could keep my liquid liner!
3. Vaseline Rosy Lips
I very rarely wear lipstick during the day, but sometimes I want just a little pop of colour to make my lips stand out. Vaseline Rosy Lips is perfect for this as it is slightly tinted to give your lips a lovely reddish-pink glow. Although in the tin it looks really bright, it’s very subtle and natural looking when you apply it. Plus it moisturises and keeps your lips feeling nice and soft, which is always a good thing!
