Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Foundations

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014

Hello hello and welcome to Day 2 of Makeup Favourites Week! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my top 10 primers yesterday as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.

Today, I’d like to share one of my favourite topics in makeup. No, it’s not blush just yet (that’s coming soon!). It’s foundations. I won’t be talking about BB creams this time, just foundations. I’ve been wearing foundations a lot more than BB creams for the past 10 months so it’s only fitting that I tell you what my top 10 foundations are. Some are classic favourites and some are recent discoveries.

You’ll also find that this is the only makeup favourites topic that I actually have reviews for every foundation mentioned. I enjoy trying out new foundations and reviewing them so you can bet your bottom dollar that there’ll be a lot more foundation reviews to come in the near future.

Let’s get crackin’, shall we? Here they are in no particular order.

Week of Makeup Favourites 2014: My Top 10 Primers For The Face and Eyes

Makeup Favourites Week 2014

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.

Read My Lips: L’Oreal Glam Matte Intense Matte Gloss

L'Oreal Glam Matte Intense Matte Gloss

When these new Glam Matte lipglosses from L’Oreal landed on my desk for review, I took one look at the word “matte” and I was instantly worried. Oh dear, not another one of ‘em matte lip products again? It’s definitely a trend that’s not going away anytime soon, these matte lips thing. After my last stint at matte lippies, it’s no wonder I was apprehensive about using these.

I tried one out and my oh my, it’s lovely. I ended up trying all of them out and they are gorgeous!

Benefit’s Majorette Blush, You Major Cutie, You!

Benefit Majorette Blush

When I first saw mentions of this blush circulating the beauty blogosphere, all I could think of was “oh yeah I gotta get me a piece of that!“. You know me, I’m the kind who’s easily suckered into pretty packaging (heck, just look at my makeup and stationery collection and you’ll know what I mean) so even though I have way too many blushes to literally cover more than my entire backside, I picked one up from Adore Beauty when I received a “We Miss You” email and discount.

Ahh gotta love those sort of emails, right? ;)
