Thought I would share my beauty products that I use regularly. All the products are under AU$35 and they might interest you if you have never used the products before. Let me know what you think.
Maybelline The Falsies - Black Drama
I know that many beauty companies come out with products that will extend your eye lashes and make them look fuller. I'm a big skeptic because you know the models are wearing fake eye lashes. With this product from Maybelline, I believe it actually does what it says it does. After I apply it, I do feel that my eye lashes look longer and fuller. Of course this is not to the extent of the models in the pictures but it does work. Definitely a product I recommend.
benefit BADgal smoldering black eye pencil
I use this pencil as a eye liner for simple looks. If I am going to work or just a casual day out, I will use this to just line the top of my eye. I never use this for the waterline. This eye pencil does not smudge or run. I think it's supposed to be used to make bold, smoldering eyes and blended with eye shadow, but I think it's perfect as an eye liner! Plus it lasts for a long time :)
It is essential that everyone moisturise their face everyday. I use Olay sensitive as my skin can react to certain beauty products and it is always good to moisturise before applying make-up. My skin goes dry if I don't moisturize and I have grown up with this product from when my mum used it back in the day when it was called Oil of Ulan.
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick - Soft Nude
I was never a big lipstick wearer, until I saw Kim Kardashian on Keeping up with the Kardashians wearing a nude lip gloss with black smouldering eyes. I was determined to find a nude lip gloss because I prefer lip gloss over lipstick. I looked around in many retail stores but couldn't find one so I decided to buy the Revlon soft nude lipstick and add clear lip gloss over it when I wanted. For some reason, when I think of the nude lipstick look, I think of Audrey Hepburn. I wear this lipstick with simple eyes, consisting of black eye liner and black mascara. If you do buy a nude lipstick, don't buy one that makes you look pale.
The Body Shop - All in One Face Base
This compact is a foundation and powder in one. I use this every day for work as it's not too heavy and perfect for simple make-up. You can use it wet as well to apply as a foundation - I personally just use it for a light cover over my face. It's perfect for when you need to apply a quick make-up job and head out. The colours the Body Shop offer are light in shade so I wouldn't recommend it for people with dark complexions. You also get the confirmation that the products are not tested on animals - which is always a win!
So there you have it! I keep most of these items in my handbag at all times because you never know when you need to touch up! These are just the basic beauty products I think that most girls should have and are affordable too!
Until next time.....
