The Safe-Bet Makeup I Always Come Back To.

Greetings Internet!

I have gone a little MIA the last few days as I just had so much to do with school and on top of that I am now stuck in bed with a chest infection which isn’t the most appealing way to spend my day however, it has some positives because as a result I am finally getting the chance to put together a new post for you guys.
Since I started the new website a few weeks back, I have introduced all the sections besides the beauty one so when I needed an idea for a new post, I concluded it was a perfect opportunity to give the beauty section a little bit of love.
For this post, I was originally just going to do a foundation review but while I was at it, I decided to go all out and include a few more products that I find myself always going back to because I think everyone is a little bit like that. No matter how many products we try, we always have ones that we will forever love and consider the safe option when making purchases so below are mine!

This foundation has been raved about for ages and for such a long time, I remember resisting from it and for some strange reason just sticking to my other foundations. However, as I became more into wearing less makeup and began opting for more natural looks, I instantly gravitated towards the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. Around that time, Bourjois also released a new improved version of the foundation which certainly did not disappoint.
As unrealistic as it sounds, the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation is so natural and leaves the skin looking glowy and flawless while at the same time being really lightweight which I personally find so important because I hate the feeling of having a tonne of makeup of my skin. The new version has an anti-fatigue formula which is full of skin boosting and protecting vitamins. The combination of vitamin E, C and B5 means it’s amazing for giving a beautifully radiant complexion and doesn’t make wearing makeup sound half as bad for the skin!
If you’re looking for a foundation that isn’t very heavy but still makes you look more awake, glowy and acts as a bit of a ‘pick me up’ each morning, I would definitely recommend giving this one a go.

For going out when I need the makeup to last, I usually would opt for some more high end eyeshadows however, in terms of everyday wear I prefer something more drugstore that I can easily repurchase without breaking the bank. I undoubtedly stick to brown shades 95% of the time and the palette I like using is the Maybelline “The Nudes” Eyeshadow Palette. This palette contains a selection of 12 mostly brown shades, a mix of shimmer, satin and matte ones. To be honest, the metallic shades are ones that I use much more as the matte ones are much harder to use and don’t have a big colour pay off. The metallic ones are fab though as their texture is very creamy and the colours truly pop once applied onto the eyelid.
Even though I am not a fan of all of the shades, this palette is still one I’d recommend if you’re looking for something cheap that does the job. Most of the shades are lovely and for that price tag, worth the hype.

This product isn't by any means a new release and is on the pricier side but it is so so good! The Mary Lou Manizer is a smooth and extremely pigmented highlighter. It is a beautiful champagne colour that would look gorgeous on fair to medium to dark toned skin. In saying that, it is not glittery at all and looks so so fab in pictures as it adds a gorgeous glowy finish! Unlike some highlighters, this one is definitely not a highlighter for a subtle shine. It is a highlighter I will definitely invest in again, especially since it's fairly big and lasts a good while. And on top of that, the packaging is so cute that there is truly nothing not to love about this product.

If you have not tried these, you truly must be living under a rock! Everyone has raved about them for years and for obvious reasons - they are incredible and their price is even better! They are certainly some of the best drugstore lipsticks out there. My personal favourites are the 03 (second from the right) which is a nude shade and 107 which is a perfect red Autumn/Winter shade (first on the left).

I hope you enjoyed this post. What are your safe-bet makeup products?
