My favourite makeup products

Along with being quite nerdy, I would definitely describe myself as a girly girl. I love watching makeup videos on youtube and instagram in my spare time and practising new makeup looks on myself. I always love knowing which makeup products people are using and loving so I can test them myself.

Top tips:

  • For more coverage, leave your concealer for 30 seconds before blending out
  • For a more glowy base I mix liquid highlighter drops with my foundation
  • Apply eyelash glue to your lash line instead of the eyelash – application is a lot smoother!
  • Heat your eyelash curlers with a hair dryer
  • Set your matte lip colour with translucent powder or lighten it with concealer
  • To avoid your skin breaking out, make sure to clean your makeup brushes and sponges on a regular basis to avoid transfer of bacteria!

Be sure to message me your thoughts if you do try these products, or if you have any good recommendations of products let me know!
