This concealer is my all-time favourite! I do not leave the house without applying concealer under my eyes, because I naturally have those dark circles that only a great concealer can fix. I love the consistency of this concealer. It’s thick and creamy yet very easy to blend using my fingers or a brush. The formula is long lasting, even after a long day at work or a messy night out, my dark circles are still nowhere to be seen! I also apply this on the rest of my face in the areas where I have redness when I don’t feel like wearing foundation.

Most days, I reach for a powder blush more than a cream/liquid blush as it is the quickest application option. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush is what I carry with me everywhere I go. Hourglass products aim to not only add colour but to also give a radiant finish to your complexion, and that is everything I want in a face product! This blush gives me the most natural and gorgeous flush to the cheeks and I’m always getting compliments whenever I add this to my look.

Picking the perfect foundation is always a challenging task. Given that I have dry skin, it’s hard to find a product that doesn’t accentuate my dryness, which is why I always go for a dewy foundations and steer away from the mattes. The Diorskin Nude Air Serum is my holy grail, and a must-have in my makeup bag. I’m the shade 20 and it’s the perfect mix between light, yet buildable coverage without leaving my skin feeling dry or cakey. My complexion is always left looking flawless!

You can’t complete a look without a good set of on-fleek brows. For this, I turn to Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Brow Pencil in the shade Dark Brunette. I am a simple gal when it comes to brows, because I naturally have a good amount of brow hair. I simply feather this through the sparse areas and build it up wherever I need to. The pencil tip is a huge defining factor as it’s ultra-thin, making it very easy to work with. I absolutely love it!

If you’re a girl who loves a mascara that gives you the effect of wearing false eye lashes, then this mascara is for you. I am able to apply this lightly with one coat, or build it up with multiple layers to create a dramatic effect. Since I don’t wear mascara on a daily basis, when I do, I want that falsies feel without actually wearing false eyelashes. It’s long wearing and doesn’t give you that panda eye look after a few hours of wear. A definite must have!

Every girl needs a good lippie! My lips are always dry and a lip balm is something I can’t live without. I also prefer something that gives my lips a wash of colour and the Dior Lip Glow does just that. It’s very long lasting, whilst still being so comfortable and nourishing. It’s by far my most used lip product, and it is definitely a lippie I will be repurchasing and recommending over and over again.
