BEAUTY: Make up Must Haves!

Thinking of expanding your makeup collection? or wanting to start out with some higher end products but don't know where to start? Hopefully this post will help! 
I never really knew where to start with makeup, my collection sort of just grew. I mean I say grew but really it's not a massive collection now but I am happy with it as I actually use everything I own rather than just having drawers and drawers of makeup that I wouldn't use as much- not saying that I wouldn't want that though! I'm just a student so am growing my collection gradually.
ANYWAY, more to the point is that this post is designed to share with you a selection of products which I would recommend if you're starting to buy higher end makeup or want to start a makeup collection as there's a mixture of drugstore and higher end products here! 

♥ First of all, these Zoeva brushes are so good and such a good price! This set actually comes with seven or eight brushes so is great for starting out as it comes with brushes for foundation, concealer, powder, eyebrows and eyes so its literally perfect! It can be bought on the website for €75 which is around £57, so £7 a brush! Which when they're comparible to MAC brushes is an insane price!

♥ Next up is the Urban Decay Naked palette! If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Naked palettes and am actually going to write a post soon about them. But for now, I would recommend the first one if you're going to buy your first Naked palette. It contains a lot of warm toned browns and golds which can be great for creating a really subtle every day look or a gorgeous smokey eye for an evening do. They retail about £38 and I shall leave all the links to everything below.

♥ I have spoken about the Nars blusher in the shade Deep Throat so many times on my blog (and yes I still laugh every time) but I love it! I bought it recently and it's my first high end blusher, it's a really versatile shade that looks great with many different looks and for many different occasions so great if you're starting out. It costs around £23 so is quite pricey but you'll love it, trust me! 

♥ The Maybelline Master Precise is one of my every day, go-to products, its super thin and easy to do a really nice eyeliner flick. I've purchased this because the one I usually buy was out of stock but I actually prefer this one, it seems to last longer! It costs around £8 from any drugstore. 

♥ Next are skin products,  I would really recommend the Rimmel Lasting Foundation and the Maybelline Eraser Eye concealer. Both of these give a really good coverage and I absolutely love the concealer, it does come with a sponge on the top to use almost like a brush but I'd recommend removing that sponge as it gets a bit gross. Both of these products seem quite popular among bloggers and youtubers at the moment, they're just so good! These can both be bought at the drugstore for around £7.99. 

♥ Finally, the Urban Decay Primer Potion! You guys know how much I love this! I feature it in literally every face of the day post but it literally is amazing and I am yet to find a primer that has the same effects. Also, I kid you not one tube of this stuff lasted me over a year and a half which is insane! This keeps your eyeshadow on, crease free all day and actually (this is gross) but over night too, yes I have kept my makeup on over night a few times and yes it does stay crease free! It costs around £16 which is insane considering it lasts almost two years! And thats with me not using any other eye primers at all! 

Where to find all the products!

    1. Yes Naked original all the way! I use it literally every day! And you do! For the quality they're so inexpensive, I love the eyeshadow brushes the most and everyone said one of them was a dupe for the MAC 217 but I actually think it's better to be honest! Xx

    1. Thank you! The Zoeva brushes are amazing! They haven't replaced my RT brushes don't worry! But I'd say I prefer the eyeshadow brushes to MAC! Xx
