Beauty ¦ The makeup collection - Bases

So I thought it was about time that I updated my makeup collection. This time I've decided that I'm going to be super in depth and I'm going to spread my collection out over 7 days. I just want to add a little disclaimer that I am in no way shape or form bragging I love makeup collection posts and videos and I wish that more people did super in depth ones. If you would like to know my opinions on any of the products in this post let me know in the comments and I can either link you to my review or give you a quick opinion in the comments.
So I decided that I was going to go in the order I put things on my face. All of theses products are stored in one of the Stodja cutlery trays from Ikea in my Malm dressing table.
At the back I keep my primers as they aren't something that I reach for to often. Unless my skin feels weird or looks super dull I don't really reach for them. However I do always like to have a couple in my collection. Some of my favourites include the L'oreal blur cream, Benefit porefessional (In the little pot) and the seventeen skin wow 3 way highlighter. In this section I rarely reach for the P2 colour correcting primer and the Miss sporty BB bronze.
Now I'm a little bit of a foundation junkie and I'm always on the look out for a new one that's better than the one I'm currently using. I've actually had to promise myself that I won't buy anymore until I've finished some of these. Some favourites out the draw include Nars sheer glow, the Gosh CC cream and both versions of Bourjois' healthy mix however I don't reach for the Maxfactor CC cream or the Miss sporty Mission correction foundation and I've slightly rejected the L'oreal infallible matte foundation since the weather started getting colder.  I also keep my Urban Decay setting spray in this section which I absolutely love for when I'm going to have a long day or I am going out somewhere.

Powder wise I really don't have many as it's not something I use often. It's also something I only buy from the likes of Boots and Superdrug as I don't use it often enough to warrant spending any large amount of money. I currently have my favourite translucent, coloured and loose powders. My favourite out of the three is definitely the L'oreal BB powder which is something I will definitely repurchase when I finish it.
Concealer is something I'm super loyal to if I find something that works well for me I tend to stick with it. This is definitely the case with Maybelline Fit me and Seventeen Stay time. I must of had about five tubes of each of these because I love them that much. More recent discoveries are the Rimmel lasting finish and the Maybelline eraser. I also really like the Maybelline super stay however the lightest shade only matches me when I've fake tanned. 



  1. I want to try the Bourjois foundation because so many people seem to love it, but they don't sell it in the US! :(

    A Little Dose of Makeup

    1. Ah no there are so many things that I want to try from the US! x

  2. Nars Sheer Glow has to be my favourite! I definitely want to shave down my collection as I've had a lot of disappointments I feel like I only keep them to refer to them on my blog haha xx
