Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick- Bronze £35.50
A long standing fan of this bronzing glow powder, it has all the right tones whatever time of year to add an instant glow and highlight at the same time. It’s the one compact I’ll throw into my handbag on a night out as it’s completely multi-functional, highlighter, bronzer, contour, glow and eyeshadow all in one, so handy. There are various other colours too which is great if you like less golden and more rosey/peachy tones.
L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara £10.99
I have tried dozens of branded mascaras over the years and ultimately always end up coming back to this high street favourite. It has a very thin plastic comb which is a bit like marmite, I’m a lover not a hater. It just works for me, no spider lashes, no big clumps and no panda eyes at the end of the day, winner.
Urban Decay NAKED Eyeshadow Palette £39.50
I’m not massively adventurous when it comes to my eye make up, some winged liner and a bit of smokey blend eyeshadow is about the extent of it on a night out, but I do always have this go-to palette to hand. It’s great because you don’t have to carry around lots of colours and these are all the tones I tend to stick to, and you can tell which my favourite colours are, it’s rather well used! This was the original but they’ve since brought out new editions. I must invest in another!
Christian Louboutin Lipstick £70
Ok so it’s a real investment for some lipstick, maybe something to go on your wishlist, but what makes it so special is the case, a little work of art and really raises the bar of your make up bag! The lipstick itself glides on and is really moisturising too which is why I fell in love with it, especially when your lips dry out in the Winter and a splash of colour is what you need. This shade is Youpiyou, a gorgeous vibrant red.
Benefit Brow Zings £26.50
A recent find that replaced a Charlotte Tibury eyebrow pencil I was using that ran down super quickly. This unique compact even comes equipped with miniature tweezers. It has a gel and a powder and you can layer it up if you like a statement dark brow! It’s really easy to use with the little flip out brush that comes inside and it lasts and lasts. It’s available in 6 shades so something for everyone!
