Beauty Products I Love

Here’s my Top products I absolutely love and reach for every day!

1. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate 

I have tried a lot of different serums in my time and this one is hands down my ultimate favorite! This one-of-a-kind boosting pre-treatment defends against multiple signs of ageing and damage. And the benefits don’t end there. Using Ultimune helps anything you put on top of it, like moisturiser or serum, work harder. Ultimune acts as both protection from potential damage and a buffer to the daily assault that can visibly age skin. It absorbs into the skin without leaving your skin feeling tight or sticky. 90€-145€, Arnotts.ie


2.  Artistry Exact Fit Beauty Balm Perfecting Primer 

Because I have combination skin with very oily T zone, I was trying to find a primer that actually works and keeps my face from looking like a melting butter. And I think I finally found it! This oil-free formula allows my foundation or CC Cream to blend more easily, and extends the wear of my foundation for fresh-looking skin all day long while controlling oils on my skin. It’s ultra-sheer and great for all skin types and skin tones. And another plus – it has SPF35! €42.10, Amway.ie


3. Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher Concealer Pen

The biggest problem I have with under eye concealers is that they crease making my under eye skin look old and wrinkly. And setting under eye concealer with powder is a great idea, but I feel like powder makes my under eye skin feel dry and old looking. So for some time I was trying different under eye concealers that would give me great coverage and wouldn’t settle into my fine lines. I think I’ve found the one! Charlotte Tilbury retoucher concealer pen   has not only ultra-covering & colour correcting texture, but also smooths and moisturizes my under eyes. Best thing- if you work the product in under the eyes with your ring finger, it doesn’t crease!! Jack pot!! Wouldn’t use this to conceal anywhere else on my face, but for under eyes it’s Fab! I use number 2 Fair. €33, Arnotts.ie



4. bareMinerals Original foundation and Shiseido Synchro Skin lasting Foundation 

I’ve been wearing bareMinerals original loose foundation for years now. I think it was my first ever foundation I’ve bought. I love it for every day, because it is light to full buildable coverage and it does no harm to my skin as it is made with only the purest, highest quality ingredients. It glides on smoothly and gives me fresh, natural looking skin. I feel like I’m not wearing any makeup at all. €30, Debenhams.ie



For special occasions and nights out I love liquid foundation that gives me fuller coverage. After trying so many, at the minute I’m in love with Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting foundation. It is oil free, medium to full buildable coverage and it sits like velvet on the skin. €48, Arnotts.ie




Another Beauty product I’m using a lot recently is Chanel Soleil Tan bronzer. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. You can wear it on its own, or for a hint of sun kissed radiance, over or under your favourite foundation. Looks so natural and best thing it doesn’t look orange on the skin! €40, Debenhams.ie


6. STILA Heaven’s Hue Highlighter -Kitten

Who doesn’t like a good highlighter these days. Owning this beauty product became a must for every makeup loving person. There is so many different highlighters on the market, so it is always hard to choose just that one. From all the ones I own, for the last few months I’m using Stila Heaven’s Hue highlighter in colour Kitten. Bouncy-to-the-touch, this unique, radiance-enhancing highlighter  melts into skin for a barely-there feel. Ultra-fine, light diffusing particles help skin look lit from within with a soft, luminous, natural-looking glow. LOVE it!! €24.10, Beautybay.com



7. MAC Powder Blush – Margin

This blush is so versatile!! It is perfect with natural day time look, it is also perfect with dark smokey eye look. It gives this needed oomph on these dull winter days. It’s a peachy-brown with a golden shimmer. A colour payoff is amazing, and the texture is soft. Love it on most of my clients too. €24, Brownthomas.com



8. MAC Eye Brow Pencil

Love this Brow pencil for creating more natural look for my eyebrows. It adds shape, colour and/or density.It is water and sweat proof, so stays put all day. No sharpener ever needed. €18.50, Brownthomas.com



9. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner – Pillow Talk

Long lasting and velvety finish lip liner I would take anywhere with me. Pillow Talk is a barely-there nude shade that would suit anyone. It really helps my lipstick to stay in place. Sometimes I use it instead of lipstick, just colour in your entire lips with it and you will end up with gorgeous matte, nude pink lips. €22, Arnotts.ie



10. MAC Lipstick Blankety 

It is my favourite nude colour. It’s ultra-creamy formula so it is not drying on the lips. Glides on smoothly, has an amazing colour pay off and full coverage – Perfection! €20, Brownthomas.com
