It’s always nice to experiment when it comes to make-up – different looks, different products – especially with the fast paced and ever growing beauty industry, with so many brands and products. However, there are always some beauty products we find ourselves going back to time and time again. Here are some of the beauty products I love and always find myself repurchasing.
Let’s start with face makeup products. Finding the perfect foundation, I find, is an ongoing struggle I have. I’ve tried so many foundations, both high-end and drugstore, but the one that I always go back to and have repurchased many times now is Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation. It’s a great, medium coverage foundation that is suitable for all skin types. What I love most about this foundation is that it comes in 40 shades, so you’re bound to find the right match for you, and it’s also great for flash photography.

A concealer almost everyone has raved about is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and from the first time I used it, I understood the hype. It blends into the skin seamlessly, with buildable coverage to give any desired effect. The creamy formula leaves you with a smooth complexion, covering up imperfections and fine lines. Again, this is a product I have repurchased many times and will continue to do so in the future.
Because I have oily skin a face powder is a must for me, and there are two powders that are an essential in my makeup routine. The first being Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder; you’ve probably come across this product before as it’s a ‘cult-favorite bestseller’, as stated on the official Laura Mercier website. The finely milled powder leaves the skin with a flawless, matte finish and is a must-have in my beauty collection. The second powder I love equally as much is the POREfessional by Benefit, this product will be particularly good for those of you who have oily skin like me, it keeps my skin matte all day and leaves it looking really smooth.
Brows are definitely an essential part of my makeup routine, and a product I’ve fallen in love with is the Micro Brow Pencil by NYX, with a crayon-like thin brow pencil on one side and a spoolie on the other. It’s very quick and easy to use, so is great for days when you’re in a rush and want effortlessly great looking brows, which is something us uni students can appreciate.
When it comes to eyeshadow, there is only one palette I always use, whether it’s for a natural, everyday look, or a full-on glam look, and that is the Huda Beauty Textured Shadows Palette, Rose Gold Edition. This eyeshadow palette has 18 beautiful shadows, including ‘foil-effect textures’ which easily glide onto the lid, making any eye look pop. My favourite matte shadows in the palette would definitely have to be ‘Henna’ and ‘Coco’, I always incorporate both beautiful brown shades into every eye look.
For lipsticks, I tend to stick to warm-toned, natural brown shades that compliment my skin tone. A favourite of mine is ‘Taupe’ by MAC, it is a buttery, highly pigmented lipstick with a matte finish. Another lip product I have grown to love is the Creamy Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick by Sephora Collection, unlike most liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, this doesn’t leave the lips looking or feeling dry. It effortlessly glides onto the lips and is very long lasting, living up to its name.
