Everyday Beauty Staples

Every so often I discover a product that makes me wonder how on earth I've managed to live without it. It quickly becomes a staple in my beauty routine and I find myself not being able to go even a day without using it. These are those products - my everyday beauty staples.

Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette

I have been utterly obsessed with this palette since I first bought it earlier this month. I feel like all of the colours are so gorgeous and shimmery, they suit pretty much everything. I hardly ever leave the house without a little dusting of 'Bananas' and 'Peanut Butter Cup' over my eyelids at the very least. You can read a full review here.

Benefit Dandelion Blusher

Even if I'm having a day where I only apply foundation and mascara, this blusher is a product I always reach for just to brighten up my complexion. I love how girly and pink it is, especially as most blushers are usually way too dark for my skin tone. It smells absolutely delicious and I love how it's not a shimmer, but not completely matte either. The brush that comes with it is a bit useless, so I'm currently using my Spectrum angled powder brush to add a quick sweep of pink to my complexion.

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in 'Peach Lights'

This highlighter is honestly crazy-amazing. It's so pigmented and shimmery, with the peach being the perfect shade for my skin (it's also available in ink and gold.) The best part is that once on, this highlighter looks very high-end due to the quality, despite being only £3! I love how glowing and gorgeous it makes me feel.

Benefit They're Real! Tinted Eyelash Primer in 'Mink Brown'

After speaking about how much I loved this sample in my favourite Benefit products post, I decided to splash out and buy the full sized version. I'm so glad I did as it has totally changed my beauty routine! Now my lashes are gently eased into colour, which also prevents the They're Real! mascara from staining my blonde lashes. I also love wearing this alone, I wore it to a job interview last week and I'm pretty certain my fluttery lashes were why I was offered the job *grin*

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation in 'Ivory'

Lastly is my current favourite foundation. For once I've managed to find a foundation that seems to agree with my skin! It isn't greasy or drying and is the absolute perfect colour, I use it absolutely every day. You can read more about how I think it's a MAC dupe here.

  3. I own the MUR highlighter but in Golden Lights and adore it, though I've been wanting to pick up Peach Lights for ages as I reckon it will suit my skin tone a bit more! I've been wanting to own a Benefit blush for ages and Dandelion has got my name written all over it! I loved this post, your photography is stunning xx
