Make-up Holy Grails

Hello beautiful people! I thought that today I would share with you my top three cosmetic items that I simply could not go without. 🙂

Processed with MOLDIV

First up, we have Kat Von D’s Lock-it Powder Foundation. I have tried multiple foundations throughout my years of wearing make-up but all of them have been slightly too dark or orange looking for me. However, I splashed some cash and bought this little beauty in the shade: Light 42 – which, might I add, is the palest shade.

This foundation gives my skin a natural, smooth look and I would say the coverage is medium. You can however build up on that – it depends on how much you apply. I put two layers on under the eyes just to hide my dark circles (I don’t use concealer).

I have found that it lasts pretty much all day and due to it being a powder it’s excellent for my oily skin. It does go a little shiny as we approach the eight hour mark but that’s probably just because my skins not the best.

Next, we have the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I was so shocked by how well this mascara worked. I have naturally long lashes and so most mascaras just enhance them a bit but this mascara makes them look very dramatic and doll-like – which I love. On days where I don’t make as much effort I just use the E.L.F Volumising mascara.

This mascara doesn’t clump my lashes and it gives them a very pretty, fluttery look and layers them beautifully. Again, it is an expensive item but I tend to only use it when I want a dramatic look.

Finally, we have the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray. This wonderful product lasts a long time (if you’re not a spray maniac) and works wonders keeping my make-up in place all day. It helps to mattify but my nose and forehead can get shiny at the end of the day. But using this, my make-up (eyeshadow, blush, etc.) does not budge.

When I mentioned that the Kat Von D foundation lasted all day, please acknowledge that this product probably aids in that! 🙂


So, there we have it ladies and gents! My make-up holy grails! What make-up items can you not live without?

Thank you for viewing my blog, I hope you have a wonderful and safe day/night wherever in the world you are~!
