Foundation: Inglot HD Perfect Coverup Fundation

This is incredible, one of the most easy, breezy, yet mattifying and good coverage foundations. It is perhaps one of the first foundations that I am going to use up and not just throw away, because it has expired. I love that is has matte finish, but it is not drying. Looks good in pictures and is buildable, so you can make it really high coverage without it being cakey.

BB Cream: Bioderma Photoderm Max 50+

It was my wonderful summer companion. I do love the high SPF that this tinted moisturizer has. I used it in the shade “bronze” and it gave me the bronzy goddess glow that I love in the summer, when my skin is good and tan.

Concealer: Rimel Wake Me Up

Such a fab, creamy, easy to blend and brightening concealer. And such a good value! It has been my fave for undereye circles and highlighting.

Powder: Bourois Healthy Balance 

One of my discoveries of 2015 and already a repurchase. This powder is perfection- so fine and silky. I use it for setting my concealer and bloating shiny skin as well. Great! Great! Great!

Bronzer/Blush: ELF Contour Duo in St. Lucia

This product is a little cheat, as it is one in two categories. I love it, and it has been in my travel bag every time I pack to go somewhere. The blush is a beautiful peachy color and the bronzer is fantastic for warming up the skin as well as contouring.

Highlighter: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector x Jaclyn Hill in Champagne Pop

Absolute favourite! I love the texture, the color, the finish and that it is by Jaclyn Hill! It can be very over the top hilghlight but I love it!

Brows: Revitalash Tinted Brow Gel

This is the first brow product I have used, and  I love it. It is tinted, so I don’t need to fill in my brows. It fixates every hair perfectly and holds for very long time, without smudging. Two thumbs up for Revitalash!

Eye base: Mica Beauty Eye Primer

This is the first product from Mica beauty that I have ever used, and I do like it. It is matte, long lasting and can be used as creme eyeshadow as well. Definitely a new discovery.

Eyeshadow: NYX Nude Matte Shadows in Underneath it All

This matte eye shadow is the perfect color for just a light crease chase, or a soft smoky eye. The whole nude matte line from NYX is fab, and I like the shadows – they are creamy and easy to blend, and the pricetag is great!

Cream eyeshadow: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate

Fantastic product! I have it in three more shades, and have been using them on lazy days, or as shadow base to get more intense colors. I like that it can be sheared out for just a little color. I like that I can put it on with my fingers, without fuss. Definitely a great product.

Eyeshadow palette: Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette

This has been one of my greatest investments (well my hubby’s investment, as it was a gift from him). I love it so much! The color selection is great – darks and lights, mattes and shimmers, cool and warm tones. It is so very close to the perfect palette! It also has two highlight shades that can be easily used as highlights on the cheeks as well. And it smells like chocolate… need I say more?

Eyeliner: Soap and Glory Supercat

Fantastic eyeliner. The balance money – quality here is great. It is easy to use, does not smudge, and is a great matte black. All that I need in a felt tip eyeliner.

Mascara: MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash

I started with a negative feelings towards this mascara, but it turned out to be amazing. The brush is thin and long, and gaps every lash to create a volumous butterfly effect.

Lip balm: NUXE Reve de miel

Such a great product. I have put it in my top 5 staple products, Once you try it, you will not need another lip balm ever again.

Lip gloss: NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

For this I would just say that it has been my go to color all summer long. It is the perfect nude.

Nude lipstick: Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick Rosewood 833 

My wedding lip color. The best your lips but better shade. Very comfortable to wear and longlasting as well.

Bold lipstick: Rimmel Lasting Finish 120 Cutting Edge

Great color! It opens doors, as a friend of mine who tried it said. I prefer this one to MAC Rebel, and I am honest.

Tools: Real Techniques MIracle complexion sponge

This changed my world. This sponge opened a new perspective about the beauty routine. Such a bargain, compared to the Beauty blender!
