2016 favourites round up

My last post for 2016 will be a list of some of my favourite finds over the last 12 months. These are the items I have gone back to and repurchased throughout the year. 

MAC strobe cream:

I often apply it as part of my make up routine. Put this over make up on the cheekbones and high points for some highlight or use under foundation for a natural glow.

Primark Matte lipstick in nude:
I have been using the nude shade for 5 months and it is always in my handbag. I am so impressed with the whole PS range.

MAC Neutral palette: 

This may have been on last years list too! It’s very very handy to have and a must if you are a make up artist. The colours complement each other and has a beautiful selection of coppers, browns, pinks and neutrals. The price point is pretty awesome too. 

Maybelline Master precise liquid liner:

This takes the stress out of liner for me. It is easy to use and smudge proof. This has been repurchased a lot theoughout the year!

Violet Voss champagne kisses glitter:

This is my go to glitter if I want to add a bit of glam to a look. It’s subtle and the glitter is small so not too over the top.

Ardell Demi Wispies:
I used to shy away from false lashes until I tried these. I love the fluttery appearance they give and so easy to apply. 

MAC Studio Fix powder:


I don’t know what I did before this. It’s so handy on a night out to pop in your handbag and make up does not move with this on.

Urban Decay All nighters setting spray:
It’s very simple. Everyone needs this! It works and it’s amazing. Spray after makeup application and you are sorted. I love the smaller size that available also.

Essence bronzer/ contouring set:

I was gifted this during the year and for a drug store bronzer it really is lovely. It’s what I use everyday and perfect as an eyeshadow too. 

Fuschia eye shimmers:

These are great for adding more dimension to a look. Mix with the sealer from the range for a more intense look or wear on its own. These are perfect for Xmas.

So these have been my 2016 make up favourites and no doubt they will continue to be my go to products for 2017.

Thanks for reading and have a super New Year.
