Bare Essentials

24 May

Peering into the deep, dark recesses of my makeup bag this morning, I realised that the best thing I could possibly do to it would be to bin it. It is a disgrace – endless unflattering eyeshadow colours, unusably short pencils without lids, leaking lipglosses and one mascara that I swear must be older than me. Perhaps inspired by the ridiculously hot weather we have had here over the last few days, I decided what I needed was to start afresh and have a makeup set of simply the basics, so I put together this list:

1. Dual Protection Tinted Moisturiser, No.7.

2. the COLLOSAL Volum’ Express Mascara, Maybelline.

3. All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade, E.L.F.

4.CandyShop Lip Tin in Candy Fix, E.L.F.

5. Eye Liner in Black, Ruby & Millie.

E.L.F. (www.eyeslipsface.co.uk or www.eyeslipsface.com) is a makeup brand that I have recently discovered and whilst their products are somewhat reminiscent of M.A.C, their prices are most definitely not. Most of their everyday products are around £1.50 and their ‘studio’ line products still only around £3.50. They also have a great selection of bags and cases. I am yet to order from them and test out their products but I’ve heard very good things from friends! I shall be placing an order very soon.
