Best of 2013: Make-Up



Now that skincare and haircare is out of the way, let's get down to business with my favourite make up products. I have discovered some amazing products this year and they really are all staples for me.

I need to stop talking about this product, but Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation has to be mentioned. You all know how much I love this foundation. NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer, the concealer which had people go crazy over and it sold out everywhere. My face was transformed when this came into my life. Clinique Airbrush Concealer* is perfect for underneath the eyes as it doesn't dry at all. Bourjois Bronzing Primer was used everyday throughout the summer and I am now rekindling my love for it. Bourjous Java Rice Powder has been my setting powder for the year, although it has now been replaced by the Hourglass Ambient Powder. For a highlighter, in the summer I reached for BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector and when I wanted to use a powder, the trusty MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle.
MAC Eyebrows in Fling/Lingering has been my go-to eyebrow product every day, the nib is so fine it's perfect. For mascara, I have two as I love them both just as much. Benefit They're Real and Clinique High Impact Extreme Mascara* are the best of the best. Top it off with Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara and your lashes are the longest they ever have been. It was a tough one thinking about eyeshadow palette but since receiving it, I have used Urban Decay Naked 3* nearly every day so it has to be a winner. It's the perfect every day eyeshadow palette for me. Before that, NARS Alhambra Duo was a winner for me.
Picking one lipstick was too hard so I went with five lip products instead, oops. For a bold lip, MAC Craving is a deep purple berry and MAC Russian Red is the perfect matte red lip. In the summer, L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Tempting Lilac was used nearly every day, I'm nearly the end of it. As well as YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 16 for a peachy orange day. For the days when I can't be bothered, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 has been my go to for months now.
For the last little bits, Essie Sole Mate has been my favourite nail polish of the year and I've only had it for a month or so now, I love it that much. I really fell in love with Real Technique Brushes this year too.
