Hello everyone, so this is a guest blog post, by me! If you're thinking "who the heck is she?" I'm naomilouiseee1 from the YouTube beauty community. I'm doing this guest blog for beautygeek123, obviously, as I have recently become pretty good friends with her and I'm so excited, so lets jump right into it! This blog post is just about what is in my everyday makeup bag.
So first of all lets start with my base makeup.
The first thing that I use, isn't exactly a beauty item, but oh my goodness, I have never used such an amazing product. This is a vitamin E moisturiser from the Superdrug own brand. It's very inexpensive which initially made me think that I wouldn't like the product, as my skin dries out a lot, especially in the summer. I like to go swimming in the sea, then the combination of sun and salt water dries my face out a lot. So all throughout summer I have been using this, and I have no dry skin patches at all! I was seriously amazed. The moisturising is thick, and has a slight scent, which personally I like, and for a drugstore, really inexpensive moisturiser I really can't complain and it has become one of my must haves!
POWDERS! POWDERS! POWDERS!
Okay so the next things I use are powder products, i.e my bronzer, blusher and my setting powder.
The bronzer that I use is the Rimmel London natural bronzer in the shade sun light. This is the perfect shade for me to do some light contouring, and it's not too dark. I also love the fact its drugstore, inexpensive and it doesn't appear 'orangey' on the skin.
The next thing is my NYC colour wheel in the colour pink cheek glow. Personally, I love this, It's the perfect every day cheek colour, and again it's really inexpensive.
I set all of my make up with the Rimmel stay matte powder, this is one of those products which have been raved about so much, so I thought I'd try it, at first I didn't see what all the hype was about but then after about a week I fell in love with it. My shade is sandstorm.
This is the one of the newest products into my everyday makeup bag, and that is my Revlon photoready primer. I don't want to talk about it too much,as I've only used it for a couple of weeks, but I will say it now, I'm impressed, it definitely makes my makeup last a lot longer, and its perfect for those longer days at school.
The next thing is my Body Shop foundation. I'm in shade 04. I love the coverage of this foundation for fall and winter because it is a lot more full and the colour for me is perfect. The only complaint I have with this is that sometimes the colour comes off, not throughout the day, by the end of the day my face still has the foundation on my skin, it lasts forever, but is i lean on my hand, and pull it away, the next thing i touch will have foundation fingerprints. This foundation is about £13 I believe and is definitely worth every penny.
The last product of my base makeup is my W7 concealer with tea tree. This has the obvious tea tree smell, which personally I like, however that will definitely put you off if you don't like it. This concealer is perfect for any spots and blemishes, and I also use it under my eyes. I purchased this of fragrancedirect.co.uk so it was even more inexpensive but it's seriously an amazing drugstore product!
Eye product wise I tend to use natural bronzey-er colours. So firstly I just use my Maybelline colour tattoo in the colour permanent taupe as a base. I then use my natural coloured Colourworks quad, and then my NYC liquid eyeliner. After that I use my 2 higher end products which are the bad gal lash and bad gal liner, from benefit. If you would like a review on either of these products I have a review of them here.
Lastly on my lips I use the Rimmel lipstick in the shade 200- Latino, it's just a perfect everyday colour. It seriously is just your lip colour but better. Once again I purchased this at a discounted price from fragrancedirect.
That's it from this blog post, thank you so much for reading, and thank you so much to Morgan for letting me do this post, it's been amazing and I've really enjoyed it.
Thanks for reading, Naomi :)
