MAKEUP HOLY GRAILS

I’ve loved and worn makeup for many years and this point, and during that time I’ve tried countless products. I wanted to share with you guys the products I am forever obsessed with, my ride-or-die holy grail products!! Let me know your favourites in the comments below.


Complexion

Armani - Luminous Silk Foundation

I have loved this foundation for so many years and I will always use it on my clients (particularly brides). It’s luminous, buildable, long lasting and always look so natural and photographs beautifully. This is a real all-rounder holy grail foundation that you need to try.

Fenty Beauty - Profilt’r Setting Powder

I’ve tried a lot of setting powders but this is the best one I’ve ever used! It is so fine, has a lovely light scent, multiple colour ranges and sets my makeup so flawlessly! I also use this to bake and it leaves such a smooth finish.

Nars - Soft Matte Complete Concealer

For me this is a multi-use product, I use this as an eyeshadow base, to carve out my brows and as a concealer. This is the perfect product to spot conceal, it’s matte, super full coverage and long-lasting. As an eye base it works perfectly to make eyeshadows pop and last all day!

Nars - Orgasm Blush

If I had to wear one blush for the rest of my life this would be it, it’s mot often I repurchase powder products but this is one of them. It’s the perfect shade of pink with a hint of shimmer, it’s not too pigmented so you rarely overdo it – it's just so beautiful!!

Laura Geller - Gilded Honey Highlight

The smoothest, butteriest (is that even a word, well it is now), pigmented golden highlight that melts into my skin and gives such a gorgeous glow. If you have a similar skin tone to me this is the only highlight you will ever need!

Brows

Fenty Beauty - Brow Wax Pencil

Since I’ve been doing a fluffier brow this is a product I cannot live without, think of the soap brow effect but with an easy-to-use wax stick. The brush included with this is THE only one I use to brush through my brows, it manages to grip every hair perfectly.

Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

I can’t even tell you how many years I’ve used this product as I’ve lost count. Obsessed doesn’t even cover it. It’s an easy to use, tiny brow pencil that allows you to draw hair strokes and create a more natural brow.

Eyeshadow

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Soft Glam Palette

It was really tricky to choose my holy grail eyeshadow palette because there are so many I love. But the ABH Soft Glam palette is such a lovely neutral palette and lets me honest if I had to choose a colour scheme to do for the rest of my life it’d be neutral. The eyeshadows are pigmented, easy to blend and the shades create such a range of beautiful looks.

Huda Beauty – Legit Lashes Mascara

This is the only mascara that actually manages to keep my lashes long and curled! It doesn’t make your lashes clumpy and lasts for ages, I won't use any other mascara ever again – you don’t even need to wear lashes!

Lilly Lashes – Miami Flare Lashes

If I could only wear one lash for the rest of my life this would be it! It’s perfect on its own or with a glam eyeshadow look, honestly perfect for any day and any occasion. The lash is so light and fluffy and gives a nice lift to the eye on the outer corner.

Lips

Morphe - “Sweet Tea” Lip Liner

An affordable, creamy, stunning lip liner and I honestly use this one more than any others. We all know nude lips are the best and I prefer a brown nude, this lip pencil is everything and more!!

Fenty Beauty - STUNNA Lip Paint

I can't say enough good things about this liquid lip, it’s so pigmented, comfortable, longwearing and the shade ranges are gorgeous. Bear in mind it does transfer but that means it wears so well throughout the day!

Fenty Beauty - Gloss Bomb

The most comfortable, shiny, non-sticky lip gloss. I’m not really a gloss person as I would always find them too sticky and annoying, or they wouldn’t last 2 seconds. Gloss Bomb changed the game for me and for the first time I love lip gloss, it’s even long-lasting – don't know how they’ve done it.

Hope you enjoyed this and I’m sure some of you will agree with these!

Love Char xx
