Welcome to Makeup Favourites Week! A couple of months ago, I did a week of skincare favourites and seeing that many of you enjoyed the mini series (thanks for the support, folks!), I thought I’d do a week of makeup favourites too. This is a round-up of my favourite makeup products thus far and it ranges from primers, foundations to eye makeup and makeup brushes. Since I get a lot of questions on what some of my makeup favourites are, I thought I’d share what they are with you.
Before I move on to the first instalment of my makeup favourites, I thought I’d give you a heads up of what you won’t be seeing in this mini series. I will not be covering concealers (hah!) bronzers, highlighters and lip products. I seldom use concealers (I hear many of you gasping there) and while I do have my favourites, I just don’t have enough to make up 10 products for that category. Bronzers and highlighters aren’t really my thing either and although I do use them from time to time, again, I don’t use enough to make up for that category. As for lip products, I’ll be doing separate mini series for that like I did for my Rudiments of Rouge mini series so I’ll save lippies for the upcoming new mini series instead.
Alrighty, enough talking, let’s get started with Day 1, and that’s my top 10 primers for the face and eyes. I don’t use face primers each time before I apply foundation but on occasion, I will use primers especially when I need my face makeup to last for many hours. As for eyeshadow primers, I never apply eyeshadows without having primer on first. My eyelids are extremely oily and eyeshadows very rarely stay on my lids for long if I don’t have primer on.
Most of these primers are long-time favourites and a couple are recent discoveries. Regardless, they’re well tried and tested to ensure my makeup stays put for hours.
