You don’t have to be a PRO you know.
Gives buildable coverage and blends into skin really nicely
Just apply to areas needed- not all over or it can look too un-natural
2. Sleek Blusher in the colour Rose Gold £4.49
Great balance between colour and shimmer
Just sweep onto the apples of the cheeks and upwards
3. Calvin Klein Ultimate Edge Lip gloss in the colour Pots £1.99
Easy to carry around and very pigmented so you don’t need a lot
It’s easier to use a lip brush to apply this because it looks better when it’s ‘sharp’ around the edges
Very silky and light on the skin but with buildable coverage
Don’t use too much- add a little at a time for a more natural look.
5. Benefit Gimme Brow £18.50
Super easy to use and looks very natural, but adds definition and volume to the eyebrows.
Just brush through eyebrows in the direction the hairs go, then double back on the hairs for more volume, then brush back into place.
6. Seventeen Skin Wow Primer £5.99
It’s a two in one highlighter and primer and is great if you have dry skin as it balances it out and makes the skin look healthy.
Apply all over face thinly, only adding more to the dryer areas of the skin or else it can make the skin look oily.
The two in one means you don’t need a highlighter and eye liner and since they are together, the colours go well with each other.
Just use the eyeliner normally, and then add the highlighter to the inner corners of the eye and on the brow bone.
8. Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder £8.99
It’s really light and doesn’t build up too much on top of the foundation.
Just brush on top of foundation/concealer
9. Benefits ChaCha tint £13
Doubles up as a cheek and lip colour so it’s easier to take to school.
Apply to lips directly then rub in.
When applying to cheeks apply to fingers first then dab onto cheeks, as applying to cheeks directly creates obviously stroke marks.
10. Barry M super soft eye crayon £3.99
Blends in nicely and works well on its own as well as with powder eye shadows.
Put a little on the centre of the lid then
Blend out with an eye shadow brush or it goes on too thick and creases easier. For a better colour pay off just keep adding and blending out.
