My Beauty Picks

Hello, me again. First and foremost I just want to clarify I’m no make up professional, I honestly do not know the first thing when it comes to doing make up professionally, I usually stick to drugstore brands, purely because your girl is on a budget most of the time. Another note, I wanted to share with you what I use on an everyday basis.

To start with, I suffer with dry skin in certain areas of my face so whenever I wear foundation, ill be honest it doesn’t look the best, my skin just doesn’t take to it and I’ve used every primer and foundation that I can afford. So I’ve resorted in using BB creams, I use the Collection Primed & Ready Anti-Blemish BB Cream. I’ve found that this does wonders for my dry skin, and works so well with my skin, it has a light coverage and works well with my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, I have used the same concealer for years and it hasn’t failed me once, I have recently noticed that they have changed the packaging to this and even the shade names, I’m yet to try the new ones however I am intrigued, assuming that it’s the same formula.


I’ll be honest I was going to include my blush and bronzer that I use in this post but for the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find new ones to replace them as I’m not keen on the ones I’m using. so I’m open to any suggestions, for this. Bearing in mind my skin tone is all over the place, I’m pale but not really pale. That makes no sense, moving on.

I have to include my eyeliner in this I am obsessed with it I bought this eyeliner a few weeks back and I have well and truly fell in love with it. It is the NYX Professional Makeup Vinyl Liquid Liner in black. It dries super quick doesn’t smudge and I don’t have to top anything up through out the day.


Now I’ve been through a lot of eyebrow products and I think I’ve finally found one that works for me. I’ve tried gel, pencil, pomade and the one I truly like is Powder. I use the Revolution Pro Duo Eyebrow Powder in Ash Brown. Set it with the NYX Professional Makeup Control Freak Eyebrow Gel and they don’t budge all day. I love powder because I find it’s not very harsh and it’s buildable so it gives a natural look.


Just like my bronzer and my blush I’m still on the hunt for the perfect mascara, I have kind of long lashes already however every mascara I try makes them look clumpy when I apply it, so like I said before I’m open to suggestions.

What’s your drugstore beauty buys?
