The Best of Makeup Series : Base Part Two

Hello, my Loves x

Recently I began my new  ‘The Best of’ makeup series, to which I previously shared with you the first part of ‘The Best of’ Base Products. To which today I bring you the second part, including bronzers, blush and highlight, I hope you enjoy!


The Face Palette

In my opinion, the ultimate face palette is the BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Paletteas it includes everything that you would need to complete your flawless base, and it is also the ultimate travel palette! Firstly the ‘Malibu Soleil’ bronzer is the perfect bronzer for my fair skin, as it not too orange, yet not too muddy toned, and blends like an absolute dream.

Then there is the ‘Hibiscus Bloom’ blush which is a beautiful golden pink coral, which is a versatile tone to be worn throughout the seasons. We then have the stunning stars of the show, the highlighters! To which there two of them, and they go by the names ‘Beach Nectar’ and ‘Rose Gold’, in which one of them is golden apricot shade, and the other the ultimate rose gold highlighter!

I can’t wait to make more Becca Cosmetic purchases!


The Contour Kit

The Rimmel Sculpting Kit is one of my everyday essentials, as just like the Becca palette this includes everything you will ever need, minus the bronzer, but I am not afraid to throw this into my handbag as it has a much lower price tag!

Firstly the highlighter is absolutely beautiful, as it has a slightly golden undertone, which when applied to the highpoints of the face glides on seamlessly, and doesn’t break down on my skin during the day. Secondly, the contour shade is the perfect ashy tone when worn on fair skin, when applied to the low points of my face,  they look sculpted without looking too over the top.


The Highlight

The The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter is my all-time favourite highlight! Although the Mary Lou looks like a creamy golden highlight when in the pan, I adore how when it is applied to the high points of the face you are left with a golden pearlescent glow. It can be applied with a light hand to create a subtle glow or can be built up heavily to make you look like a glowing goddess!

I just know that when I have used up my first one,  I will immediately be picking up a new one.

The Bronzer

 You really can create the perfect bronzed look with the Rimmel Natural Bronzer.When it comes to drugstore bronzers, Rimmel will always be the one brand that I go too, as they easy to blend, they don’t look muddy and always give my skin a natural glow, and the Natural Bronzer is no exception. I will always have backups of this bronzer in my collection, as I quite simply can not be without it!


The Blush

The NYX Professional Makeup High Definition Blush in Intuitionis my one and only NYX face product in my collection. I would describe this as more of an ‘amber’ blush, as it has golden flecks of glitter running through it, which makes my green eyes pop! As I am not a huge blush wearer, this is the one blush that I will reach for when I need a flush of colour, as it is the perfect subtle shade. If you have tried any of the HD Blushes, I would love to know your favourite shades so I can pick them up for myself.

If you have enjoyed this series so far, stay tuned for my ‘Best of’ Brow Products, featuring my favourite brow powder, pomade and brow gel!

Thank you for Reading,

Lots of Love,
