The brush I always use with this is the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, this brush really does the work for you. You just move it around and it creates a perfect finish with you foundation. It blends and buffs it so seamlessly, without disturbing anything you may have already applied. I go in circular motions all over my face to get the best result. It's my favourite foundation brush!

The foundation I have been loving is the L'Oreal True match, I recently done a blog post on this and another L'Oreal Foundation so if you want to read that then just click here. I am totally obsessed with this foundation, I love it so much I literally use it everyday. It creates such a flawless finish to the skin, it covers every little thing on your face if you build it up. The way I apply it is, I apply one full layer then add to the areas that need more coverage and that way it makes my skin look flawless. Mine is in the shade W1 Golden Ivory, the range of colours in this line is incredable, it has so many different colours with so many different undertones, so if you have a more pink or yellow undertone there will be a perfect match for you.

I have been loving Maybelline recently so it's only right to do a post about 5 of my favourite things, there is obviously more but I have to draw the line somewhere because I could go on forever about them.
(This isn't in any order of which is my total favourite, just listing them)
1. Colour Sensation Lipsticks. £6.99
I have done a post about them recently if you want to check it out just click here.
2. Baby Skin, Instant Pore Eraser - £7.99
This really does reduce the look of my pores, I have been noticing them a lot recently, but when I use this I can barely see them at all which is amazing. It's kind of a silky feeling, but not very heavy you can't feel you have it on.
3. 24hr Colour Tattoo. - £4.99
Obvcourse these are on my list, they are amazing bases for your eyeshadow. They make everything more pigmented and last for ages! They are also gorgeous on their own, there is lovely colours available so you can easy wear them alone.
4. The Colossal Volume Express Mascara. - £7.99
Gives amazing volume, makes your lashes look really black. Really nice mascara, isn't too clumpy or wet so it's easy to apply.
5. Hyper glossy Liquid Liner. - (can't find the price anywhere, sorry)

Its the Maybelline ColorSensational Lipsticks.These lipsticks have been out a while, but I have never actually owned any and I have no clue why. When I first buy a lipstick I always go for a nude shade and a mauvey pink shade, simply because they are the two colours I get the most wear out of so I can really get too know how they wear. So I got the shade 725 Tantalizing Taupe and 630 Velvet Beige.
I love everything about these! From the noise it makes when you put the lid back on too the formula. They are so creamy and pigmented, they just glide onto the lips and don't show all the fine lines and cracks. Good priced (I got mine from Superdrug for £6.99 I think) and they look really elegant.
I personally think these are the best colours in the collection, they are just so beautiful and good for any skin tone.
I just can't believe I haven't had these from the beginning.

I'm not usually a fan of mascaras that are more wet, but this is amazing. Lenghening mascaras are my favourite type, and this makes your lashes look like spiders legs!
It applys very thin, and can be built up if you wanted too, because it's thin it doesn't go on your lashes clumpy which is the most annoying thing if that happens.
The wand is also small and thin, it doesn't get much of the product onto the wand so it really separates all your lashes and makes them look so long.
It doesn't really make your lashes thick so if you wanted a mascara that was volumizing then this isn't it. Also I do find I have to be careful when applying it, because of the consistency of it it tends to transfer really easily and it ends up on my eyelid.
I have talked about this for the longest time now, so I thought it would be right if I did a blog post of its own. This has to be my favourite Bronzer through the whole of summer. I can't describe how amazing it is, it gives the best bronzey glow to your skin but without it looking like you have loads of product on your face, if that makes sense. It is technically matte, it has no shimmer in it so it can still be used to contour but somehow it makes you look so healthy, it has something in it to create the amazing glow. I got mine from the E.L.F website, I think it was £3.95 I'm not entirely sure but if I was you, I would defiantly check it out especially if you like a dewy/glowey look!
(It looks kind of orange in this picture but it is not like that in person)

I have been wearing this lip combo for about a month straight, literally everyday! I'm totally obsessed with it. It's my perfect 90s matte lip colour. Even though its matte, they are not drying, don't sit in the lines of my lips and last such a long time. I find that they both go on so smooth, I have no trouble when it comes to applying them.
(They are a little bit darker on the lips when they have dried.)
It's the Rimmel Lipliner in Eastend Snob with Calvin Klien Lipstick in First Kiss over the top. It is amazing! They are both similar shades just the lipstick is abit darker, they are kind of a Mauvy Pink shade. The colour really compliments dark hair colours.
I can't stop using it. I have tried using something different but I keep going back to this, I just love it so much.
I have found my favourite liquid liner! This is probably the easiest thing to use, if you struggle with liner, like I do, then I would recommend you try using this. I got mine in the shade Black, The tip you apply it with is short so you have a lot of control, also it isn't very thick so you can still get a thin line with it. It literally lasts ALL DAY! It doesn't move what so ever. A lot of glossy liners can move around on your face or smudge down where you don't want it, this one doesn't and it also dries really quickly so you don't need to sit around waiting for it. It is the blackest black, you won't need to go over twice, one swipe with it is enough.
All I do is wipe some of the product off onto the side of the tub because it can have too much on the applicator and apply it too my eye and it's as simple as that.
I love this, I would recommend it to everyone, no matter how experienced with liquid liner you will be able to use it!
