Make Up Essentials

Your make up bag...The most important thing you own, after your phone of course.

But what have you actually got in it? Do you really need all those things that make it so full that you can't close the zip anymore? Here is a guide to everything you need to have in your make up bag:

Primer

The main function of a primer is to minimise fine lines and pores, and increase the lifetime of your makeup saving you the hassle of constantly re-applying your makeup during your busy day.

We like Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer.

Concealer

There’s no such thing as perfection, so expecting your skin to be is not really fair! The good new is that you can hide imperfections like birthmarks, spots and black bags or even tiny scars and blemishes with a good concealer.

We like L'Oreal Paris True Match Le Crayon Concealer.

Foundation

A foundation is a bit like prince charming...there is one for everyone! So no matter what skin type you have or what colour and coverage you would like, there will be one waiting to make your life perfect!

We like Barry M Cosmetics Liquid Foundation.

Powder

Professional makeup artists always use powder as their final finish. That's because it helps your foundation last longer and helps prevent makeup runoff.

We like Max Factor Creme Puff Pressed Compact Powder.

Blusher

With a blusher you can add some colour to your cheeks at anytime. What is the look you are going for? Sun kissed? Rosy cheeks? No problem, your blusher can make you look like you just got back from two weeks in Spain!

We like Sleek Make Up Blush Rose Gold.

Mascara

Unfortunately not everyone is born with naturally long eyelashes! The good news is that it actually doesn't matter as long as you invest in a good mascara! What are you after? Thicker? More volume? Better curves? You can achieve it all with the right mascara!

We like Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara.

Eyeliner

The possibilities for your eyeliner are endless. You can use it to “outline your eyes" but also for more dramatic looks. Create your everyday look with a pencil or an eye catching framed eye with a liquid eyeliner.

We like Rimmel Glam'Eyes Professional Liquid Eye Liner.

Tweezers

A good pair of tweezers is a great investment and will help you to remove unwanted hair from your face but will also come in handy to apply fake eyelashes for example.

We like the Sanguine Professional Eyebrow Tweezers.

Brushes

When doing your makeup, your brushes will become your best friend. A decent set of makeup brushes will be well worth every penny you spend on them!

We like the Abody 9 Piece Makeup Brush Kit.

Lighted Makeup Mirror

An LED lighted makeup mirror will help you to apply your makeup with ease. They help to show the details of your face in crystal clarity and help you to cover up any blemishes you otherwise might have missed.

We obviously like our own Absolutely Lush Lighted Makeup Mirror.

Hair Essentials

Can everyday be a great hair day? The answer is YES, but for those of you who don’t have a magical fairy godmother you will need these to make it happen...

Hair Dryer

A good hair dryer is definitely worth the investment and the right one can cut your drying time in half!

We like the Babyliss 5737BU Ombre Hair Dryer.

Hair Straightening Brush

The hair straightening brush has taken the market by storm over the last few years and it's not hard to understand why…THEY’RE SO EASY! Just plug it in, brush and you are sorted!

We like the AsaVea Hair Straightening Brush.

Heat Protection Spray

When you are using any kind of hot tools on your hair, a heat protective spray is a must! Remember hair straighteners can heat up to a huge 230¬įC!

We like Lee Stafford Original Heat Protection Shine Mist Spray.

Hair Oil

EVERYONE needs hair oil. Not only to provide shine but also to repair your hair from the daily damage you put it through like the sun and heating tools etc.

We like Schwarzkopf Bonacure Oil Miracle Light Finishing Treatment.

Hair Mask

Even if you think your hair is in great condition, you should use a hair mask once a week. Just pop one in while you do your homework, tidy your room or watch an episode of your favourite series?

We like Art Naturals Argan Oil Hair Mask.

Travel Essentials

Long weekend in Paris? Beach holiday in Greece? Or maybe it’s time to party in Ibiza? They might be different destinations, but what you pack in your suitcase doesn't have to be. Here are a few essential cosmetics for your next holiday:

Dry Shampoo

This holiday lifesaver freshens up your hair in no time so that you can spend that extra hour by the pool instead off in the shower washing your hair!

We like Batiste Dry Shampoo.

BB Cream

Perfect for holidays when you want a lighter make up but without feeling completely naked. Just make sure it has SPF protection to protect your skin in the sunshine.

We like Garnier BB Cream Original.

Nail Varnish Removal Pads

Raise your hand if you struggle to fit everything in your suitcase! The secret is to pack light and nail varnish removal pads are a step in the right direction. You've got more important things to pack than heavy plastic bottles that will leak anyway.

We like Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads.

Manicure Kit

This little beauty could save you in any nail emergency that presents itself during your holiday.

We like NUOLUX 12pcs Manicure Pedicure Set.

Travel Perfume Bottle

Fill it up with your favourite perfume and only bring as much as you are actually going to use.

We like Perfume Atomiser Bottles, Refillable Travel Size.

Travel Size Razor

A must in every girls suit case! Does just as good a job as a full sized razor but takes up a lot less space...and weight!

We like Gillette Venus Snap Women's Portable Razor.
