The Usual Suspects

Hello Lovelies

Hope you're all having a good week, and if not its not long til the weekend!

Thought I'd do a quick post on the products I tend to reach for on a daily basis. Unfortunately I'm in a job which requires my makeup to be minimal and professional so you won't see any outlandish eyeshadow shades in this post I'm afraid!

I try to avoid wearing too much foundation during the week and usually just use MAC's MSF Natural buffed in with a kabuki. If I feel that I need a bit more coverage, I'll generally use Bourjois 8 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation as its not too heavy and evens out my skintone without looking cakey or 'too much'.

As I'm a bit pale I tend to use bronzer more often than not, and usually go for a pink toned blusher, My current flavour of the month is Tippy from the MAC Hello Kitty collection.

I always use an eyebrow pencil or powder as my brows need a bit of help definition-wise and apart from a bit of mascara (currently L'Oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Inside Mascara) and Eyeliner (the ubiquitous Urban Decay 24/7 in Bourbon) I'm good to go!

The only thing that I'm missing from the picture is my favourite product of the year so far - MAC TLC in Feelin' Good.

What are your make up staples?



  1. I havent tryed that foundation but I really want to! XO

  2. For some reason I read that as saying "I try to wear too much foundation during the week"..

    I'm in a professional job too and we can't go in with really bright colours on. The two things I always wear to work are a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow, mascara and a YSL lipgloss.

    I only whip out the statement lips when I'm in court, which isn't often..

  3. My Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation, Boi-ing concealer, and max factor false lash effect are musts for me x

  4. I tend to reach for Peachykeen blush by MAC everyday, and YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in number 2. Everything else is interchangable really, but they're always neutrals x

  5. Oooooh, I spy some Bourjois in there, I want that chocolate powder :) Nice products xxx Follow me please! :D


Come on, don't be shy!
