Of course makeup is just something superficial, or at least, it can be and it’s definitely something one can live without. But as a makeup lover I tend to dramatise things and say I can’t live my life without certain products. Today I’m going to show you guys five of those products I just wouldn’t want to go without. If you’re interested in finding out which products mean so much to me they can’t be missed, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with a product I never thought would be this important to me: primer. I used to think it was a useless step that I did anyway because every beauty guru on the internet did it, but I never believed in it. Until I got a little older and much more experienced and I had actually discovered the difference. But that’s not the point. The point is the Becca Backlight Priming Filter.
At first I wasn’t quite sure whether I was going to end up liking it or not because it is pretty glowy and that just wasn’t my jam back in the day, but oh lord oh lord. This primer is absolutely stunning. It’s like you’re pouring gold all over your face and it’s so incredibly pretty. I never want to run out of it.
Another glowy product that has stolen my heart. This might not come as a surprise but it is my Dior Nude Air Luminizer in the shade 001. You guys. It’s stunning. I still remember the day I bought it like it was yesterday. I was so excited and in love. But the package got delivered at a whole different adres not even in the city I live in so I was completely stressed out whether I would still end up getting it or not, but in the end all was right and I was reunited, or united, with my new love.
This highlighter just adds the perfect amount of glow to the skin. I mean I love my Becca Opal highlighter but that one is incredibly intense. My MAC MSF’s are great too, but a little too settle. This one is exactly in between the two of them. It’s really nice and glowy, but it isn’t too extreme. Aside from that I also really love the colour of the glow. I just think it’s the prettiest thing in the whole wide world.
Moving on to something that isn’t just amazing but also very essential for me. I’m talking about my Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. This is just a salmony coloured corrector that instantly brightens the area underneath your eyes and make you look like you’ve actually had some sleep last night while you actually didn’t.
Sadly I do lack a lot of sleep, especially lately, and this product has been a huge help. I do try to use it at limited times only so the effect stays impressive, but oh my. Whenever I use this my dark circles are gone. Just completely gone. I don’t know how it does it, but I absolutely love it!
Another product I can’t live without is foundation. Foundation in general. I just love foundation. I have always had a fascination for it, but ever since I started getting into high-end foundation this fascination has grown to be even bigger. I just love it. I have a lot of posts on foundations, which ones I like, which ones I don’t, you name it. But ultimately my current favourite foundation that I wouldn’t want to live without anymore is my new Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation.
I only bought it about a week or two ago, which is why I haven’t reviewed it yet, but you guys. It’s absolutely incredible! It looks so stunning on the skin and it just has such a gorgeous texture. I love the way it makes my skin look and it’s all I’ll ever want and more!
The last essential is eyeshadow. I’ve always been an eyeshadow junkie and even though I don’t experiment with it as much as I did back then, I’ll always love wearing it and trying out new things. There are a lot of palettes that I have grown to love throughout the years, but one that has always stood by me is the Stila Eyes Are The Window palette. I have two of them, but I do prefer one over the other.
Just like the highlighter, I still remember buying this like it way yesterday. I believe I was home all day because I felt sick that day, and while I was reading blogs I came across it. I fell in love with it in a way I had never fallen in love before and I wanted it. But since it wasn’t super cheap and I didn’t have that much to spend back then I just wasn’t sure about it. I showed it to my mom and told her how much I loved it and she said “why haven’t you bought it already?”. That’s when I decided to go upstairs, take my laptop and click that purchase button. I’ll always be thankful for that moment.
And that concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which 5 products you just can’t live without!
