everyday makeup products favourite best
I have noticed myself really reaching for the exact same things in the mornings lately as I have found myself really wanting to go back to a more basic look. I have always favoured natural makeup but I have toned it back a lot recently and I wanted to share my current everyday favourites. I am also aware that these are all (but one!) high end but I promise it isn't my fault I can't use a lot of drugstore brands, especially in face products, because of my pale skin.

Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation $57
Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation review
I don't want to spend too long on this one because I am forever singing praises but honestly I recently got rid all of my other foundations because I never wear them. I am on to my fourth bottle now and I can't see myself ever being without it. I do have so much trouble finding shade matches but I also have issues with formula on my dry skin and this one wins every time. Do yourself a favour and pick up a sample from Mecca or Myer next time you are in because it is amazing.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Moonstone $50.82

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Moonstone review
If you have normal to dry skin and have never tried mixing in a bit of liquid luminiser in with your foundation you need to give it a go! It is a perfect way to fake a moisturised, healthy looking complexion in no time at all. It is also definitely in trend at the moment to have skin that glows from within and to have a "wet" strobe look for lack of a better word. Becca of course makes the most beautiful one and it is worth noting that this bottle is huge, but you can definitely find drugstore liquid luminisers too if you want to try this out on a budget.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer $43
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer review
I have been using this one for ages and I adore it. Admittedly, I don't adore the price tag at all but I luckily only use one every 4-6 months or so. Most of the reason I use this is because it is the only one in ANY brand I have found that actually goes light enough for me. I would love to be able to use cult favourites like the Maybelline Fit Me and Age Rewind but sadly that isn't ever going to happen. Thankfully though this one is gorgeous and looks so perfectly natural. I really do love it but I just wish I didn't have to pay 40+ bucks for the only concealer that suits me.

Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder $73

Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder review
Again, I have mentioned this one before but there was no way I could leave it out of this post. I use this every single day and it is also worth noting that I have had this at least 6 months and there is still TONS left in the pot. It will easily last a full year. I love this because it doesn't matte out my base which I like to keep a little dewy and natural looking but it still sets my makeup in place. It is absolutely lovely and while I am aware it is expensive, I think for the quality and the huge 30g of product it is well worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight $97

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight review
Okay I am aware this is hideously expensive but considering how much I use it and that you get a lot of product I still love it. I use it all the time and I particularly like the shade of the contour shade because it is warm enough to also bronze up the face but cool enough to look absolutely perfect on my pale skin. The highlight is absolutely gorgeous too and it is a lot more subtle than my other favourite Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Powder. If you want a single, go-to everyday bronze and highlight palette you need to check this out. It is insanely blendable and such high quality. I often also forgo eyeshadow and just use the highlighter on my lid and bronzer through my crease which looks incredible.

Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 72 Rose Initial $73
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 72 Rose Initial review
This is hands down my favourite blush in my entire collection. Since I first got it I reach for it probably an average of half the time even though I have a lot of others to choose from. It is perfect and I honestly could just have this blush for the rest of my life. It is the perfect rosy pink that looks really natural and flattering whenever I wear it. As a gorgeous warm pink it literally goes with every look, lipstick, etc. I will actually endeavor to find the closest drugstore match for this one for you because I am acutely aware of the price. I feel like I might have some luck with the Bourjois blushes.

Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Long-Wear Eye Liner in 003 Brown $9.95
Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Long-Wear Eye Liner in 003 Brown
Yay, a drugstore item! Rimmel kills it with this Scandal'Eyes liner and I particularity love the brown shade. I usually just roughly draw it on the outer top and bottom lash line and smudge in with my Sigma E15 brush. It defines my eye beautifully but still looks very natural and understated. It lasts all day and I really can't fault this eyeliner. It is perfect. I also love the black for lining my upper waterline for more dramatic looks. Just look at that smudgy goodness! I also lined my upper waterline in this picture too.

Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Edith $52
Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Edith review
Yes, this is still my all time favourite lipstick. I use this at least every second day and it is always in my handbag. The formula and colour is perfect and it is definitely my signature colour. I won't ramble on too much but please just swatch this next time you are near a Chanel counter, just for me!

So there you have the products that I truly do use all the time. I am sorry that they are all so expensive though! Am I a high end makeup snob? I feel like I need to do an entirely drugstore next week to compensate. Who would be up for that? Let me know because it seems like a good idea and I really don't want you to think that this blog is only for people willing to drop insane amounts of money on makeup like I clearly do. 


I hope you enjoyed my favourites and I would love to know what yours are so leave a comment down below.
