So it is popular on youtube and blogs and such for people to do make-up collection tours. These are a guilty pleasure of mine! I think it’s interesting seeing what people like and what they spend their money on. The ones I usually see are by beauty ‘gurus’ whose idea of a small collection is 20 blushes and only ‘a handful of MAC eye shadows’. Well I thought I’d do a make up collection too, just for shiggles. I’ll be honest; I mainly took pictures as I was sorting through it this morning, throwing out a few ancient things (ie. Things I bought for my 5th year prom age 16 (I’m now 23!!)). My collection is a hellava lot bigger than it was five years ago because I have since gotten into higher end brands and following blogs etc. As I don’t have a lot, I prefer to spend money on a few nice things rather than lots of cheap things. Also I’m a sucker for free gifts with purchase or free gifts in a magazine. Just so you can see how many I’ve got that way, I’ve starred them!
Mmm what to say about face products.. I am very happy not wearing foundation. Both the ‘bases’ that I have are tinted moisturizers really. I actually prefer my skin sans base if it’s having a good day although the laura mercier tinted moisturizer is excellent in looking like skin (so worth the high price, although it was a birthday present)!
I’ve recently got into blushes and I think the coral colour of cha cha tint suits my skin tone. I also like the MUA pink blush. It was only £1 but I wasn’t sure about how I felt about such a pink blush so obvious so I didn’t want to spend loads. You can’t go wrong with £1!
I quite like having a glow hence the highlighters. I hate the powdery look and recently got rid of my only (and very old) rimmel powder which I think was making matters worse by being the wrong colour! I don’t really have a shine problem but maybe that should be my next investment, a powder that doesn’t look powdery but will make my make up stay on longer.
I was going to put all the photos in one post but thought that would be a bit of an overload so they’ll come in installments! Stay tuned for ‘my make-up volume 2 -Eye stuff’!!
