7 Irreplaceable Makeup Products

There is something thrilling about signature looks and these are the key pieces of my makeup closet. I keep coming back to them and they have all been well used. Once upon a time this list would have been the filled with the likes of Chanel makeup but frankly I’ve not bought anything from the brand for years and all the products I have and like were limited edition. On the same note, the little makeup I’ve bought in the last year or so has been mostly Nars hence the majority of these but still these are all products I have repurchased and desperately trying, have failed to find shades and formulas that can compete with them.

Top Ten Makeup Products

DSC02140I swear I didn’t do it deliberately but ultimately there is a lot of Chanel involved but even though it’s a highly luxurious brand I don’t think people realise how excellent their products are and it’s not just a name you’re paying for. Before I go on, let me just quickly mention that these products are listed in the order they came to my mind when I was writing this post. I probably reviewed most of this products so if you want to read more about any of them, it’s all linked. Continue reading “Top Ten Makeup Products”

Work Makeup Uniform

Mac Twig, Chanel Raffinement, Hourglass Mood Exposure, Tom Ford TerraSo I guess the key to work makeup is finding balance between professional and not over the top and I won’t suggest wearing mascara and concealer because I’m one of those people who get up early just so they can spend thirty minutes doing their makeup.
