A couple weeks ago Jane did a review on her must have daily makeup pieces, so now it’s time to do mine!  The thing that I love about these products is that they can all be used for day and night looks, which means that unless I want to do something crazy then all I need is what’s in my makeup bag right now!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

Nars Foundation

Like Jane my daily go to foundation at the moment is NARS Sheer Glow (Colour- Fiji).   Unfortunately I have incredibly sensitive skin that a lot of the time is covered in eczema, so this means that I don’t have the luxury of using just any old thing on my face.   I find that Sheer Glow doesn’t dry my skin out and gives me really good coverage for daytime wear and then if I’m needing that little bit extra for an evening out then I can just build it up.


Australis Contour Palette


This has to be one of my favourite products at the moment.  I was sceptical when a work colleague of mine introduced me to it, however now I don’t wear my daily makeup without it! (I mean come on who doesn’t like the thought of beautifully contoured cheeks).   I find that a lot of makeup powders dry my face out very quickly, but I haven’t had a problem which is great!

NARS Blush- Orgasm


A delicious pink colour with a hint of shimmer, what more could you ask for?   The thing that I love the most about this blush is that again you can build the colour up depending if you are going for a day or night look.


Benefit- High Beam Luminator


If I’m feeling like I need a little bit extra on my face then my go to is High Beam by Benefit.  Amazing if you are wanting a really natural look for the day but still wanting that little something extra.   This is also a product that is going to last a long time as you only need a couple of drops each time.

Stila- Into The Light Palette


I absolutely love everything about these eyeshadows.  The best thing for me is that I only have to carry one palette around with me and it covers everything from day to night!  Unfortunately for me Stila don’t make this palette anymore, however they have a huge selection in store so I’m sure they’ll have something similar.


Revlon Colour Stay Liquid Eye Pen


I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been using this product for, as its been that long!  For anyone that’s wanting to learn how to do that beautiful cat eye, then this is the best product to start with.

Volum Express Mascara


As Khloe Kardashian said “more $$ doesn’t mean more volume or length” and I couldn’t agree more!  This hands down is one of the best mascara’s I’ve ever used!  For me I don’t have very long or thick lashes,  and the difference after using this is amazing!  Perfect for those days when all you want to do is put something basic on your face.
