Hi, I'm Rebecca

Hey, Makeup Enthusiasts!

Are you ready to embark on a beauty journey filled with makeup wonders? Look no further, because I have compiled a list of my 5 top makeup must-haves just for you. Brace yourselves as we dive into the world of fabulous transformations and self-expression. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. Magic in a bottle: Foundation that Blends Seamlessly

Let’s begin with the beauty product that lays the foundation for all our makeup adventures – literally! A high-quality foundation is an absolute must-have. It works like magic, concealing imperfections and evening out your skin tone. Find a shade that matches your skin perfectly, and you’ll experience the transformative power it holds. With a seamless blend, it enhances your natural beauty, leaving you feeling confident and ready to conquer the world!

For long-lasting results, it has to be Estée Lauder double wear.

Please note: If you have dry skin you really need to make sure you have a good moisturiser and prepped your skin prior. 

For mature skin, i would recommend Estée Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue

But remember the best foundation you can wear is glowing skin. It’s super important to look after your skin.

2. Spellbinding Eyes: Mascara that Brings Lashes to Life

Ah, there’s something undeniably magical about lush, fluttery lashes that can captivate anyone’s attention. Say hello to the enchantment of mascara! A good mascara transforms your eyes by adding volume, length, and depth to your lashes. With a simple swipe, your eyes will truly come alive, making them the focal point of your makeup look. Get ready to mesmerize with those captivating, flirtatious eyes!

I have tried hundreds of mascaras, they either dry out too quickly, they are so expensive and last all of five minutes but I have found the perfect mascara. I have got all my customers raving about this mascara. Benefit Badgal Bang Lash mascara. This mascara creates MASSIVE volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. There’s a reason why it’s the #1 selling prestige mascara in the UK*

3. Radiant Glow: Highlighter to Showcase Your Best Features

Have you ever admired that stunning, radiant glow on someone’s face? Well, let me introduce you to the secret behind it – highlighter! This beauty gem works like a magical wand, accentuating your best features. Be it your cheekbones, brow bones, or cupid’s bow; a delicate sweep of highlighter adds a touch of ethereal luminosity. It’s time to unleash your inner sparkle and become a glowing goddess!

Benefit – High Beam is a favourite this satiny pink liquid highlighter accents cheek & brow bones for a dewy glow. It’s super long-lasting. 

Use as a spot highlighter over makeup or wear under your favourites for subtle luminescence. 

4. Picture-Perfect Lips: Lipstick to Express Your Unique Style

Ladies, our lips have the power to convey unspoken words and make a statement. Enter the world of lipsticks! With an endless array of colours and finishes, lipsticks can unleash your creativity and personality. From bold reds to subtle nudes, there’s a shade for every mood and occasion. Applying that perfect lip colour is like putting on a finishing touch to your makeup masterpiece, enchanting everyone around you.

I have tried so many lipsticks. The two brands I love are Estée Lauder and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick. I love the hydration and shine of Estee Lauder and the packaging is so pretty, but honestly, they don’t last that long on me. I find Rimmel long long-lasting finish lasts hours on me and it doesn’t create that line on my lips where it’s dried out. The packaging isn’t amazing but that doesn’t bother me it’s all about how it lasts. I need it to last as I can’t reapply when I’m busy in the salon. 

My go-to colours are Rimmel London lasting finish lipstick, 206 Nude Pink and No. 6 Pink Blush. I normally go for more nude pinks as I normally wear heavier eye makeup. 

5. Setting the Magic: Makeup Setting Spray for Longevity

To make sure your flawless makeup stays intact throughout the day, you need a little bit of magic to set it. This is where a trusty makeup setting spray comes into play. A few spritzes after you’re done with your makeup routine, and voila! Your masterpiece is locked in place, even through heat waves or dance parties. With a setting spray by your side, you can bravely face any adventure without worrying about makeup meltdowns.

I’ve been trying out Urban Decay Urban Decay All-Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, it’s fab and smells delicious. This is suitable for all skin types. It’s vegan and oil-free. Which is even better. 

Congratulations, dear makeup aficionado! Armed with my 5 top makeup must-haves, you are now ready to embark on your journey to self-expression and confidence. Remember, makeup is not about hiding; it’s about celebrating your unique beauty and enhancing your best features.

So, gather your brushes, open your makeup bag, and let the transformation begin. Allow your creativity to soar, experiment fearlessly, and always remember to be kind to yourself – because, my friend, you are already beautiful inside and out!

Stay fabulous!
