A few of my favourite things.......

These are a few of my favourite staple beauty items that you will always find in my kit and makeup bag:

Flawless Face Blender by Crown: 

This is my favourite item for applying foundation or a BB Cream. The face blender is perfect for that flawless airbrush look. It's eco friendly, washable and uses very little product. Great for applying a cream highlighter as well. To wash I use a small amount of baby shampoo and squeeze and rinse in water.

How to use: Wet the sponge until it's completely saturated and squeeze out the excess water. Dab it in to your makeup (cream or liquid). Apply to face by bouncing it along the skin, pressing slightly on the surface.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Skin Booster:

I recently started using this to give my skin a boost in the cooler dryer temperatures. The skin booster instantly hydrates the skin to smooth the appearance of fine lines. It illuminates skin to prep it for makeup application. 

How to use:  Apply a few drops to your foundation before application (on Mixing palette or top of hand). Mix well and apply foundation. Can be used alone as a skin primer. To use alone, simply apply a small amount all over face before makeup application.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream:

I absolutely love this BB Cream. It acts as a primer and hydrates the skin while providing SPF 35 coverage guarding against VUA/UVB rays. The tinted formula evens out skintone and can be worn alone (perfect in the summer) or under your favourite foundation. It's paraben free and actually prevents your skin from becoming too oily.

How to use: Use after you apply a primer. Apply with your flawless face blender for perfect application. 

Where to buy: Sephora / Shoppers Drug Mart

 Cosmetco Gel Liner & Matte Lip Gloss:

The Cosmetic Company's Gel Eye Liner and Matte Lipgloss #105 are my must haves for any occasion.The gel liner is a long-wearing eyeliner that will glide on smooth and easy with a pointed or angled liner brush. Great for bridal makeup and creating the perfect liquid liner look or winged liner with easy application. The gel liner has a minute drying time so you’re able to smudge for a smokey look. Comes in 6 different shades.  Click here for more information to buy. 

The Matte Lip glosses are my favourite stay all day lip colours. They are bold and long wearing lip glosses that dry matte. They have nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E and Avacado Oil to keep your lips hydrated so they don't feel dried and caked like a lot of matte lip stains do. Mineral based and paraben free.They come in 8 beautiful shades but #105 is my all time favourite nude.  Click here for more information to buy.
