I’ll admit it my computer desk at home mildly resembles a small beauty counter at a department store; products that I simply can not live without strewn across the table top. I have tried, tested and spent copious amounts of money experimenting and trying out the latest beauty fads and here I am today filled with knowledge.
I bring you today my all-time favourite products and top beauty hacks; trust me you’re going to want to take a look…
|| GARNIER MICELLAR WATER ||
I honestly don’t know how I survived without this product; it’s super versatile ranging from makeup remover, face wash to brush cleaner. Perfect for removing eye makeup as all you need to do is apply some to a cotton pad; press on your eyelid for a few seconds and then wipe away. This stuff is the shit.
|| NIVEA MEN POST SHAVE BALM in sensitive ||
Umm sorry what did I just say? Yes that’s right, and what do I use this for you may ask? I tip a tiny amount into the palm of my hand and work from the centre of my face outwards and it acts as the perfect makeup primer! This absorbs any excess oil and and extra bonus…it smells divine.
|| MAC STUDIO FIX PRESSED POWDER FOUNDATION ||
This is my go to foundation for everyday; using a large dense brush I simply dust it all over my face and it looks flawless. It comes in a huge range of shades and its compact so it’s easy to travel with!
|| ESSENCE MAKE ME BROW eyebrow gel mascara ||
An exact duplicate for the Benefit Give Me brow except it’s only $5! This little tiny tube of magic sets my eyebrows for the day and gives a really natural finish.
||MARIO BADESCU DRYING LOTION ||
Zap that nasty zit in an instant! Apply before going to bed and wake up with that annoying little pimple half the size. Besides Kylie Jenner swears by it so it must be good right?
|| SILK PILLOW CASES||
As opposed to sleeping on a cotton or linen pillow case; using a silk one will tame that wild mane of yours by reducing frizz and breakage. It also helps to prevent wrinkles! Win win I say.
|| VASELINE X PERFUME ||
By applying a small amount of vaseline to your pulse points/where ever you spritz your perfume will help it to stay put i.e you will smell delicious all day long.
|| BEAUTY BLENDER ||
Never did I think that a little oval shaped sponge would effect my life so much, but ever since discovering beauty blenders I haven’t touched a liquid foundation brush. Don’t be fooled though! Many brands bring out their own version but nothing compares to the original or my personal favourite the REAL TECHNIQUES miracle complexion sponge. Top tip make sure you use is wet; this allows the products to apply smooth to the skin and prevent the sponge from soaking up all your beloved foundation.
|| DRY SHAMPOO BEFORE BED ||
As described above simply spray your hair all over (focusing on the roots) before going to bed and you’ll awake with clean(er) hair.
