My Holy Grail Beauty Products

Hey everyone, hope you're all doing okay! Im here today with my 10 holy grail beauty products

Before i start this is a collab with Tamzin (check it out by clicking here) her blog is one of my faves! She's also posting her holy grail beauty products, deaf worth a read and check out her other posts while you're there!

                                 




This is honestly the best thing to remove makeup and even eye makeup! I have really sensitive skin and this doesn't make it red and is so soft on the skin whilst still removing everything! I tend to buy the larger bottle and i think its such a good price considering it lasts for ages - a little goes a long way! 





Of course this is one of my holy grail products! Ever since i got this i use it everyday! The colours are perfect for me as i prefer more nude and neutral colours. They blend lovely and the colour stays for ages! I can't wait to grow my collection!




I've been using this product since the week it was released in stores and i still love it so much! It's the perfect shade for me to show contour but for it to look as natural as contour can! Also the highlighter is fab and at only £6.99 its demo worth a try!





This foundation is my absolute favourite foundation - it matches my skin perfectly (hence the name). If i apply this on my face in the morning i'll get home from school and it won't have budged. It's amazing coverage, just enough for my skin. Also, its actually moisturising which i think they added in the new formula along with a pore blurring effect which is pretty cool! Its actually been voted UK's number one foundation according to Superdrug! (I prefer this to the Mac Studio Fix foundation)




You've probably heard so many people rave about this, which is the reason i bought it and I'm joining in on the rave! Along with the hot cloth this removes all my makeup (even eye makeup) all whilst cleansing my skin.  It leaves my skin feeling soft, fresh and so clean. It's a little pricey but it lasts ages and is by far the best face wash/cleanser I've ever used.




I haven't has this product for a while but its definintly become one of my holy grail products! I bought this on a limb just because i'd used the Neutrogena face wash before but this stuff really works! I've applied it to a spot the past three nights. The first day the spot had reduced in size and redness and over the next two days my spot has just disappeared! It's extremely affordable and i highly recommend!




To be honest any mac lipstick could be on here but my current favourite is the shade 'Velvet Teddy'. I'm not the best at describing shades but its kind of a nude but darker. (I call it a noticeable nude basically). It's matte and despite the fact I usually find matte lipsticks too drying to wear, Mac ones seem to not dry my lips out!





I only have the mini size of this but i would 100% buy the bigger size! I just apply a few dabs of this just above my cheek bones and it gives such a nice, subtle highlight! A little goes a very long way.




This concealer is my all time favourite and I've tried so many! It covers my dark under eyes so well and it doesn't cake up! Also it doesn't go orangey which i find happens with a few concealers. It's not too pricey and will always be my go to concealer.




Im always up for trying new brow products and i just fell in love with this one! I shape my brows using the wax and then fill them in using the powder; its a perfect match to my eye brow colour as well to give a natural look!


So they're my Top 10 Holy Grail Beauty products!

Hope you enjoyed reading,
