*R Kelly voice* Now usually I don't do this but uh... Not everyday outfit posts, I've decided to incorporate a little beauty into my blog. So I am really into makeup - I wouldn't dream of visiting Tescos without my eyebrows coloured in, yes I'm one of those sad sad people. I'm the kind of person who could happily spend an HOUR contouring my face, my boyfriend doesn't get it at all he says 'why do you want to make your face more 3D??'. Anyway, I thought I'd share a few of my faves with you so here goes.

Clockwise from Left

The perfect 90s deep brown lip resides in this little tube.

Thank you Debenhams for bringing Make Up Forever into my life, this foundation keeps me more shine free than any other I have ever tried. I've got the oiliest T zone you can imagine and somehow a combination of this and Macs blot powder keeps me matte all day! I definitely recommend using a primer with this product though as it can be quite drying.

  This is the holy grail. Everyone raves about it for good reason and lets be real by the time you've spent £8.50 or whatever on the Sleek eyebrow palette you may as well have spent £15 on this. The tiniest bit goes a long way, applied with a Mac 208 brow brush expect fleekiness. I would never got anywhere sans eyebrows apart from the gym, and now I don't even have to take them off for a workout. This shit stays on! 

I love a good bronzer, I can't be bothered to contour everyday, sometimes my totally flat face needs a little somethin' somethin'. This is not too shiny which I like, looks so natural on, not powdery at all and very buildable. Also, a massive bonus is that this is waterproof!

Thank you Benefit for consistently making the best mascaras - this one is even better than 'They're Real' in my opinion.

I am not that experienced with good primers, only godawful ones like that Lancome slippy monstrosity. However, I this body shop primer. At £12 I think it's pretty good for a primer and the tube is big. I bought this before Christmas and I'm only about halfway though! This makes my foundation look so smooth I'd rather not put anything on my face without this.

Apparently this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm, personally I would never spend £23 on a blush but I'm quite happy to spend £4.49. This is gorgeous, so summery and shiny but also somehow a very subtle colour on my skin tone. LOVE IT!
