I thought it would be nice for me to share a few of my makeup essentials. Makeup that I use basically every day! There will be four posts in this little essentials series so I hope you enjoy reading them! POWDERSThis bronzer is my favourite! I used it when my sister came to visit and took me forever to find because it was sold out everywhere. But as you can see I’ve hit pan so I need to try and get another one very soon. This bronzer is amazing and so affordable!
This is a great pressed powder. It goes on so well and makes my skin look so smooth. I don’t know if I will buy another one right as I finish this though because I’ve heard some really great things about the Australis finishing powder and I really want to see how that is.


eye essenialsI’ve been using this kohl eyeliner since I was about 15. It’s just amazing! I’ve tried others but they just kind of fade after a few hours, but this Rimmel liner lasts and doesn’t fade to grey like others I’ve tried.
I have always used Maybelline or Model Co mascaras so last year I decided it was time for a change and I asked my husband to get me this Too Faced mascara as part of my Christmas present. I absolutely love it and I don’t ever want to try any other mascara ever again. Since I got it, it’s all I’ve worn.


eyebrow essentialsL.A Girl Pro Conceal is absolutely amazing. It comes in so many shades it’s not even funny! That’s what I love about it the most. Most brands only cater to lighter skin but L.A Girl has every shade you would ever need.
I love eyebrows and I love trying new eyebrow products. This pomade has quickly become a favourite. It lasts all day and doesn’t smudge, unlike a lot of other eyebrow products that I’ve tried in the past. I’m very excited to try the ABH Brow Wiz and Brow Definers some time soon.


I hope you enjoyed reading about my makeup essentials. Come back soon to read about my skincare essentials!

    I have been wearing Kohl eyeliner for years! I also use a 2in1 compact foundation and powder as a time saver. It works well for me 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.

    I love eyeliner too but have not managed to find one (or a trick) that stops it from smudging into my eyelids!!! Any tips greatly appreciated!

    Thank you for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back on 2nd April when the long opens again xx

      A setting spray would probably help! Thanks for commenting! x

    I am a fan of kohl eyeliners too although these days I don’t wear so much due to excessive amounts of time in the gym and lazyness! #KCACOLS

    I love Kohl eyeliners too, although sometimes go for a precision liquid eyeliner if I just want the top done, depends on my mood 🙂 #kcacols

      I’m still trying to find a good liquid liner. They all seem to dry out after about a month even though I keep the lid on. Thanks for reading! x
