Beauty Hit List

Makeup and beauty products are basically fashion's little sister. They are one and the other and makeup can often complete the look, whether it be a subtle lip or bold lashes and a serious pop of colour. Because I consider fashion to be art you wear, I also apply the same to makeup, but on one's face. Because I love making lists and I haven't had time to pull out my camera in a while, here's a list of some must-try items that I've used over the years and have LOVED. Try some, let me know what you think & enjoy!

  • Benetint by Benefit
  • Miss Popularity by Benefit (this actually may be discontinued but it is the best purchase I have ever made)
  • Russian Red Lipstick by MAC
  • Orgasm by Smashbox
  • Hypnose Doll Lash Mascara by Lancome
  • Burts Bees lip-balm
  • Jaqua Buttercream Frosting Lotion
  • Jaqua Pumpkin Spice Face Mask (perfect for fall!)
  • Chanel no. 5 (my perfume since I was 16 years old - it's a true classic)
  • Mistress Champagne Hand Lotion by Butter London
  • Shellac - this is a nail colour which lasts up to 2 weeks. If you haven't tried it, go to your closest spa ASAP 
  • "Take a picture .. it lasts longer" silk glimmery body balm by Benefit
  • Hello Flawless Powered Foundations by Benefit
  • Smokin Eyes Brow and Eye Kit by Benefit
  • Philosophy 3 in 1 Shampoo, Body Wash and Bubble Bath (this comes in every scent you could ever imagine. Some of my favourites: Cinnamon Bun, Birthday Cake, Green Apple and Peach)
  • Cover FX Cream Concealar 
... It seems as if most of these items are by Benefit. I must say I am a huge fan. I have tried many companies including MAC, Clinique, Lancome, Dior and more! Although I find myself usually going back to them, until recently when I started going completely cruelty-free with all my beauty and makeup products. Here are some amazing brands if you want to do the easy switch!!!

  • Cover FX 
  • LUSH
  • Smashbox
  • Butter London
  • Too Faced
  • Live Clean
