What if all my make-up disappeared?


Apart from crying, this post is about, if for some reason all my make-up disappeared, what would be the first ten items I would re-purchase. I've only counted make-up, hopefully the person that took all my make-up left me my brushes. (I like to see the best in people.)




I was inspired to do this post because of this video, but I'm sure others have done it. I think it's a great idea as it makes you consider your favourite items from your collection, the ones you use most regularly and also the products that you would happily suggest.



Max Factor High Definition Mascara: As if I haven't gone on about this mascara enough, but I really love it. I am growing more and more found of the False Lash Effect, but for an everyday, defined lash look, this mascara wins hands down. (For a comparison of the two, check here!)

Hoola Bronzer: This is hands down, my favourite bronzer. It is a lovely matte finish, with no orange tones which is perfect for contouring, and bronzing to boot. And as overrated as the Benefit packaging is, it sure does look pretty.

Dior Amber Diamond: I love this highlighter. It is perfect, especially for summer. I love that it can also be eyeshadow, and it is honestly the most luxurious product I have. I couldn't imagine not having it now!

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer: This is the best concealer I've tried for under eyes. The Rimmel Match Perfection one isn't far off, but I love this concealer. It really brightens my under eyes and brings my face to life. I preferred it to the cult Touche Eclat. (Please don't hurt me.)

MAC Painterly: I love this so much. It evens out the colour on my eyes, and makes a perfect base for my eyeshadow. (Not much to me said, but it is a staple in my daily routine.)


The Balm Cabana Boy: This is one of my favourite blushes, and if I could only use one, this would probably  be it. It is amazingly pigmented, it stays on the cheeks for ages, and gives the perfect girly flush, with a hint of sophistication to the cheek. (If a blusher could do that, anyway.)

Loreal Super Liner: This is the perfect liner, especially for thicker lines. I love the whole pot and dip part, and the tip of the pen, extremely easy to use.

Sleek Brow Kit: Over the past couple of months, this has become a daily item. I am loving bold brows at the moment, and this gives the perfect look, albeit slightly too dark for a 'natural' look on me, but hey, you only live once, and darker brows aren't going to kill anyone, I'm not talking 'scouse wife anyway.

Gosh Eyeliner in 015 Natural: I love using that on my waterline to eradicate redness, without being as overpowering as a white liner. 

Stila Natural Eyes Palette: Another product I can't seem to shut up about, but it is seriously so good. Definite must have for me now. If you love eyeshadow, please just get it, I promise you will love it, or I will give you you're money back.*

Have you done this post, if so please let me know so I can have a nosey.

What would you get first?

Just for a laugh, a bit of an outtake photo. 


Gangsta much?

*I totally won't give you you're money back, but I will be very surprised. Maybe a shocked face photo, 'cause I haven't embarrassed myself in these photos.
