Summer Makeup bag Additions

MAKE-UP-HAUL-1

I have been after freshening up my makeup bag for quite a while now. These are my most recent purchases, all from ASOS as they were having a wonderful little 30% off all things beauty so it’s rude not too, right?

I’ve been searching for a really good highlighter for what feels like forever. I had a great one from Dior but for some unbeknown reason they decided to discontinue it. The Nars version in Albatros looked like a good try. It’s a really great everyday highlighter, perfect for cheekbones and soft enough for a natural daytime look.

NARS-ALBATROSS-HIGHLIGHTER

I also purchased the Nars Copacabana highlighter. This is one of those products that I always picked up and oohhed and ahhhed at when at the Nars counter but have never stepped away with. I can safely say after using it I am absolutely head over heels for it. I use the tiniest like bit to highlight the key areas and it goes such a long way. It gives your skin a really healthy illuminated look and is perfect if you want to achieve a dewy glow. I just love t.

NARS-COPACABANA NARS-COPACABANNA-HIGHLIGHTER-SWATCH

This is a repurchase. Nars Kuala Lumpur is my favourite eyeshadow ever. Admittedly I originally bought it because I liked the name but the colours are so soft and pretty. I use the pinky/orange on my lids and the purple in the crease.

NARS-KUALA-LUMPUR-EYESHADOW

Another repurchase. Benefit erase paste is absolutely wondrous. It’s the only concealer I have ever used that doesn’t crease under the eye and can hide the latest of nights effortlessly.

BENEFIT-ERASE-PASTE

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. I have seen this all over the internet and it seems to be the marmite of mascara. I really really wanted to love this and thankfully I really do. It’s lengthening properties are unlike any mascara I have ever used. It doesn’t clump and makes my lashes look really fluttery without looking like over caked spiders legs. An all round winner.

BENEFIT-ROLLER-LASH

And finally some tools. Flat circle sponges are my foundation go to. I got one with a foundation I purchased recently and I love the natural finish it gives. An eyeliner brush from Nars to hopefully achieve that perfect wing and a fluffy eyeshadow brush for blending. 

NARS-MAKE-UP-BRUSH

 

There you have it, my mini makeup bag freshen up ready for summer. I would love to hear your thoughts on Benefit Roller Lash if you have used it, please leave me a comment below.
