Following my SS 13 fashion wish list, I thought I’d share my current make up wish list with you lovely lot. I’ve recently developed a slight obsession with makeup tutorials on YouTube, which is where most of the things on my list have come from.
My favourite YouTube beauty expert is Camila Coelho, who is Brazilian and lives in the US. She has two channels one in Portuguese and one in English. Her look is quite made up and glam, but you can still get great basic tips from her tutorials, so make sure you check her out if you need some makeup tips or inspiration.
1. The Porefessional by Benefit
I’ve heard great things about it from friends that have used it, and I’m just about to run out of a small sample I got from Benefit. It goes on smoothly and melts into the skin leaving it feeling satin smooth. It also reduces the appearance of pours so once you apply your foundation on top your skin is flawless!
2. Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay
One thing that turns me on about a product is if it’s both functional and practical. This eye shadow palette ticks all the boxes. It has a perfect selection of neutral shades, and a mixture of matte and shimmery colours. The packaging is also great, as I can imagine this going everywhere with me once I get my hands on it, and the tin is easy to wipe down and won’t get grubby, unlike the original naked palette that had a material finish.
3. Naked Flushed palette by Urban Decay
After mastering the subtle contouring technique, from watching Camila’s foundation routine video. I’m desperate to get hold of this palette! It includes a bronzer, blusher and highlighter, so again perfect for travel and achieving a bronzed glow for Spring/Summer.
4. Scandeleyes Shadow Stick by Rimmel London
I already have one of these in Bad Girl Brown and I absolutely love it! It goes on so easily and is really versatile. You can swipe it on for a block of colour or you can blend it in for a softer look. I’m loving the trend I’ve seen in mags and on blogs recently, of a pop of colour under the bottom lashes, so will definitely be buying one of these is Tempting Turquoise.
5. Lip Stick in Coy by Topshop
Orange lips are hot this season so this chunky pencil in a peachy colour is ideal for recreating it on the go day to day. This colour caught my eye straight away. I can imagine myself wearing this alone for a matte finish and also with a bit of gloss on top.
Have you tried any of these products? Anything on your wish lists worth adding to ours?
