Makeup Essentials x That's Just Fabulous



Hi Nana Wintour readers! I'm excited to be guest posting and taking over Sophie's blog today. I've decided to share my must-have products. Those products that I reach for pretty much every morning and would feel a bit lost without.

First up for the base...

Chanel CC Cream: At the moment I'm into bases that are just enough to even out my skin tone and give me a bit of glow. I'm a fan of all over glow so I usually steer clear of matte formulas. I find this tends to work best with my dry skin type.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: My go-to concealer for everything. I find this tends to be the best at covering my dark circles (aka the bane of my existence). 

YSL Touche Eclat: Definitely my most used highlighter. I use it in the corner of my eyes, my brow bone, cupids bow and down my nose. It's also the product of choice for me to throw into my handbag. Since it works as a concealer and a highlighter it's perfect for touchups. 

Eyes...

Maybelline Full N' Soft Mascara:  My holy grail mascara for sure. This stuff doesn't budge, holds a curl like no other and gives me fluttery lashes. Even though I own and try out many mascaras, this is the one I always come back to.

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper (Translucent): I had a bit of a toss up between this product and my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. In the end this guy won-all due to its ease. On mornings I'm running behind or for quick afternoon touchups this is the perfect product. It keeps my brows polished and is pretty foolproof. 

Finishing Touches...

NARS Dual Intensity Blush 'Fervor':This blush has dominated my makeup bag for the past few months. It seems to be my perfect match. The lighter pink side gives just the right amount of flush and goes with so many looks.

Clinique Chubby Stick 'Heaping Hazelnut':This was a purchase that was fully enabled by the Olsen twins. Once I discovered they favoured this product I had to have it. It gives the perfect amount of colour while being balmy and hydrating. The perfect nude to always keep on hand.

Let me know if you use any of these products in the comments below!

And a big thank you to Sophie for letting me take over her blog for the day!
