My current favourite makeup products

Those makeup products that make me actually want to get up in the morning and look presentable.

I’m definitely not one to get up and put on a full face of makeup every morning but I tend to try and put on a little something just to make myself feel more confident. Having said that, I do love makeup and I really enjoy playing around with it (which is why it takes me approx 2 hours to get ready for a night out) so I thought I’d tell you the makeup products that I’m loving right now.


Recently I have been tending to slap on a touch of foundation in the mornings, if just to even out my skintone slighty and my current favourite is the YSL All Hours foundation. It gives a good amount of coverage without looking cakey and gives a good base for the rest of my makeup to sit really well on top. It’s on the pricier side, but definitely worth the money!

From a designer brand foundation to a high street concealer, Revolution’s Conceal and Define concealer exploded into a crowded market last year and it really does live up to the hype. I love this concealer for under my eyes and dotting across my face if I’m having a no-foundation day. I can’t decide what I like more; the great coverage, the super extensive shade range or the killer price at only £4 a tube.

I’ve been obsessed with the SportFx blending sponge recently, I’d heard good things about it and thought I’d try it out for myself and I’m so happy I did. The SportFx Blend and Go sponge is so so comparable with the OG Beauty Blender but it’s literally less than a third of the price coming in at only £5. It blends my foundation so beautifully that I can’t see myself paying for a boujie Beauty Blender again, pop into your local Sports Direct and pick one up for yourself!

I literally cannot wait another second to talk about the James Charles x Morphe Artistry palette. Nothing I say can really do it justice, Its got an incredible range of colours and the formulas are gorgeous. Although the shadows can be slightly difficult to work with this is only because of how incredibly pigmented they are, but if you take your time they blend together like a dream. This palette is so versatile it’s probably the only palette I’ll ever need, I’m completely obssessed.

When it comes to lipstick the one I’ve been gravitating towards more than anything recently has been Maybelline’s Nude Embrace matte lipstick. It is scarily pale but when I blot it on my lips with a slightly darker liner already in place it looks gorgeous and effortless. Maybelline’s matte lipsticks are so comfortable and last a long time without making my lips dry and flakey, definitely a win!

I hope that gave you a bit more insight into those makeup products I just can’t put down right now and maybe a bit of inspiration for your next shopping trip!
