Makeup Lately

I don't really think these posts need an introduction anymore! If you're new it's basically the makeup I've been reaching for throughout the last month. Check out the 'REVIEW' links for more in depth reviews.

Touch In Sol No Problem Primer | £15 | REVIEW

I have tested other primers throughout the month but I just keep coming back to this bad boy! It has everything I want in a primer, it's blurring, makeup applies beautifully over the top, it extends the wear time and most importantly this isn't drying! See my full review here.

Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation | £32

This foundation has gained a lot hype recently, I think I might do a separate post on it. But I quite like this. It has really good coverage and does blur everything. The consistency is quite thick but blends out so easily and looks so natural on the skin. My only issue is I don't find this wears overly well on me. But that aside I do really like it.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer | £28 | REVIEW

I've put this back in rotation because it is amazing! So full coverage and so natural. This covers everything including dark circles, spots and pigmentation without having a masking effect on my skin! To some this up - amazing!

Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Powder | £33 | REVIEW

Like the Touch In Sol primer, I've tried other powders but nothing compares to this! It sets my makeup down really well and has such a good blurring effect. It leaves my skin looking perfect but not cakey and this is practically undetectable on the skin.

Milani Bronzer | £11

Bronzer is a step I cannot miss, regardless of the season. I just love the way it instantly gives colour and life back to the face. Throughout the last couple of weeks I've found myself reaching for this one from Milani. The shade 05 is really warmed toned and gives a very natural, sunkissed glow to the face. The powder itself is really soft and applies evenly.

MUA Jelly Highlighter* | £5 | REVIEW

For highlighter I've been reaching for this palette in the shade Light Spark. This super affordable palette houses 3 different highlighters ranging from an icy White to a slightly deeper Golden colour. My favourite shade is the middle one which is a classic Champagne colour. I really can't get over the formula of these. It's kind of bouncy and has a hybrid mousse like consistency. They are so buttery soft and gives such a lovely glow. I really recommend checking these out. For the price you can't go wrong.

Too Face Baby Love Blush | £25 | REVIEW

I've been really enjoying a natural blushed look. And this blush in the shade Baby Love is perfect for that. It's a Peachy colour with Rosy under tones. It's finely milled and long lasting. There's nothing not to love about it.

Huda Beauty Warm Toned Obsessions | £25 | REVIEW

I'm obsessed with this little palette. It contains 9 warm tones that are all perfect for creating an everyday eye look. All the shades are buttery soft and really pigmented. They blend with utter ease and last all day. As a result I just can't put it down. See swatches here.

Touch In Sol Stretch Mascara* | £18 | REVIEW

For mascara I've been reaching for this loads. It's a lengthening mascara to really add amazing length. It can be built up to add volume too. It's long wearing while still easy to remove! 

Urban Decay Vice lips | £15

My lips have been so dry I've found myself reaching for lip products that aren't going to make it worse. So this Matte lipstick from Urban Decay has been a firm favourite. It has a super creamy formula that isn't drying at all while still offering a matte finish. The shade Backtalk is a really nice Mauvey everyday shade.

Buxom Lip Cream* | £15

I'm still very much enjoying glosses and I love this one in the shade White Russian. It's a sheer pale Pink colour but it's not too pale, it looks silly. The formula of these tingles ever so slightly but not in an uncomfortable way, to give a plump look to the lips, which this actually does.

So that's the makeup I've been reaching for lately.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...
