I love experimenting with make up and hate the whole contouring, cover your face in a mask of make-up like most young girls seem to have fallen into doing. They've forgotten that make up should accentuate and be fun, not something to hide behind. I love make up and over the years have experimented with lots of brands and products. I now have a good solid make up bag with some great products in that l swear by.
For foundation Estee Lauder Doublewear is a failsafe when your skin is tired and pale in the Winter or you want a heavier look for evening. This stuff really lasts all day. Maybelline Satin Liquid is great for everyday and if you want something lighter in Summer. Next an absolute staple for any make up bag is the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks which l collect like they're going out of fashion. For eyeshadows l love Laura Mercier for the range of colours and staying power.
Another cult beauty product is the Nars Bronzer in Laguna and Deep Throat blusher which even when you feel like you've had a heavy night can illuminate your face.
I've tried a few expensive mascara's but have keep coming back to MaxFactors Masterpiece Glamour Extensions and it never goes clumpy.
I'm a huge fan of bold lipsticks and the Maybelline Superstay 24hr really does last a day without any need to reapply and will even be there the next morning!
Bold lipsticks are going to be huge for 2017 and l'm enjoying trying some of the looks below for Christmas parties.
My latest favourite lipstick is a matt plum colour but would love to find one that lasts all day. Can anyone recommend one?
