Top Five: High End Beauty

12 comments
Meet my Holy Grail of all foundations - Double Wear. This is a full coverage foundation which finally gives me the flawless complexion that I've been looking for all these years (I'm not exaggerating!). I have pale skin which can give a dull complexion and add a massive load of freckles on top, I personally feel more confident when I've got my 'face on'. Not only does it give me a flawless finish but just as important - it actually lasts. I got really fed up of trying foundations which were leaving me with a patchy face and dry skin and thanks to Double Wear, those days are long gone. Seeing as this is a high end post, this is expensive at £24.50 and it also comes in quite a dinky bottle with no pump, but the formula itself is definitely worth the price. I use the shade 'Desert Beige' and admittedly it took a good few samples to find the perfect shade. If you want to get shade matched at an Estee Lauder counter, my advice would be to ask for a few different samples as the lady on the counter kept making me look alarmingly orange!!
Daisy Dream is the most elegant fragrance I've ever owned. You only need to take a one second glance to realise how stunning the glass bottle is and you only need a further few seconds to breathe in the scent and realise how fruity and floral it is. It's a lovely and light fragrance, meaning its perfect for being my everyday perfume. If you're looking for a fresh, girly fragrance then Daisy Dream is the one for you.
Benefit's Hoola bronzer was the first ever bronzing beauty product that made a lasting impression on me and has stayed put in my makeup bag ever since. I have been blessed with the not so great gift of invisible cheekbones, so Hoola has become a must have for me to create the sun kissed look while finishing off with sculpted cheekbones too. Being a powder formula, I find it really easy to apply and blend and it also gives a natural look, leaving no streaks or the dreaded 'muddy' effect!
It's funny how I never used to be in the slightest bit interested in my eyebrows, but now I definitely wont finish my makeup routine unless my brows are filled in! Despite my natural hair colour being quite a dark brown, my eyebrows are actually naturally a very light colour so I find this HD Brows kit essential for giving my brows more definition and colour. I use the 'Foxy' palette and there are two other palettes to choose from, depending on your skin tone.
Last but by no means least, it's the Mary-Lou Manizer. This little beauty is something that I am planning to repurchase over and over again! Mary-Lou not only is packaged uniquely but the contents are even better. Mary-Lou is a beautiful honey hued luminiser which highlights my skin perfectly. I was concerned I may end up looking like a glitter ball but it's really easy to just sweep a very small amount onto my cheekbones and if I want to build it up, that's easily done too. It lasts really well and also glistens in the sun - I couldn't recommend it more!

  11. The Mary Lou maniser is brilliant, I love it because of it being a multi use product. You can use it as a highlighter or even as a shadow.
