Latest Make-Up Game Changers

My latest four favourite make up products!

maybelline brow drama "medium brown" // soap and glory archery brow pencil "hot chocolate"

I use the brow drama brush to coat my brows with the colour first, and then I go over any gaps with the soap and glory brow pencil. I used to draw quite a square edge to the front of my brows, but now I prefer a much softer edge. Looks much more natural! My brows stay put for the day.

nars matte multiple "altai" 

Okay, at £27 I think this is the most I've ever spent on a make up product! I was wandering around Selfridges and spotted this at the Nars make up counter. I have previously used powder contour, but I much prefer applying this cream as a contour, as I can easily apply perfect lines to my cheekbones/forehead/nose and quickly blend with my finger. Stays on until I take it off with make up remover. That £27 still hurts though.

mac prep + prime transparent finishing powder

I bought this on a whim when I was hanging around the Mac lipsticks, but I'm glad and I won't look back. I have oily skin so I'm always looking for the perfect powder. This stuff is so wonderfully translucent that I can pile it on my face and it never looks covered in powder. It reflects light so makes skin look dewy, but keeps away oil longer than other powders I've used. It's not a miracle and my face will always end up shiny, but this helps keep it away.

    1. Thanks Lydia. Archery also means I don't have to spend money on the Anastasia brow wiz haha! x

  2. Ok you've just made me reaaaally want to try the mac powder as I have oily skin too and want to find a powder that mattifies but still gives a glow (if that's possible!) have you used the mac studio mineralize finish powder or whatever it's called? xx

    1. I haven't but I actually read reviews for both before I picked! It seemed like people were saying it was less mattifying/could look cakey if you were constantly reapplying. Whereas I can load my face with the translucent stuff every hour and it's never too much :) x
