My Essentials!

For my first ever post (yay!) I finally decided to do a post on my everyday essential products. These are all staples in my make up bag at the moment.

First on the list I have the Revlon Colour Stay Foundation for normal/dry skin in the shade ivory. This is my all time favourite foundation. I love how long it lasts, the full coverage and the fact its suitable for my ghostly pale skin! 
*UPDATE: I have know realised that whilst this is great for pale skin, it is way to pink for me. You can see the new foundation I am using in this haul*
Revlon Colourstay for Normal/Dry skin in Ivory £12.49
This is the brush I use to apply it. These 'painter' style brushes have become pretty unpopular but I find this the best brush for applying foundation. It gives the best streak free flawless coverage. The brush is pretty small so it takes a little longer but the extra time definitely pays off.  I even prefer it to the Real Techniques stippling brush and Sephora mineral brush!
Top Shop Foundation Brush £7
This is a new addition I bought with boots points because I'm terrible at saving them. After months of lusting after it I'm so glad I finally have it! Its a gorgeous colour to use as a eye shadow base or, if you're lazy like me, on its own. It really makes blue eyes pop. 
Maybelline Colour Tattoo- On and On Bronze £4.99

Last but not least is the Mac Cream Colour Base in Pearl. I bought this after Sammi from BeautyCrush talked about it in a video. Personally I found it a bit pricey at £14 but I do use it every day to give a gorgeous shine on the cheek bones and brighten up tired skin.

  1. On and on bronze is a beautiful cream eyeshadow, so glad I bit the bullet and bought it! :) Must wear it at least 5 times a week :P xxx
