Whether you’re new to makeup or simply in-need of a cosmetics refresh, then you’re definitely in the right place.
We share some of our cult-beauty products you need to create almost any makeup look, and more! They are a mix of high-end and drugstore products which are easy to find if you’re in-store, or just shopping online.
1. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara, $19.95
Probably one of the best drugstore mascaras which helps to create the illusion of long, thick lashes with just one application. Use on both your top and bottom lashes to boost their volume without the need for falsies.
2. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, $50.60
A chic eyeshadow palette which boats four matte shades, two exclusives to create any makeup look. It makes the perfect gift for those who like to keep their eyeshadow looking nice and simple, but can also create a perfect smokey eye.
3. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, $59
Not only is Nars famous for creating a number of different foundation shades, but this is also the best way to achieve glowy, radiant skin. Apply onto a freshly moisturised face, and buff into the skin with a cosmetic sponge, or flat-top kabuki brush for a ‘your skin but better’ look.
4. Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow, $11.95
If you suffer from oily lids, then this is the perfect shadow which stays on for hours. Apply with your fingers, and dab on the eyelid to set the shade. Use a translucent finishing powder over the top to keep it in place all day.
5. Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna, $49
There’s a reason why Laguna by Nars is one of their best selling products. The light-infused bronzer suits all skin tones, and brings a warm glow without leaving an orange tint to the skin. If your skintone is a little too dark for this shade, use Casino which is also well-loved.
6. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, $17.60
Undoubtedly one of the most popular primers ever, this is the perfect base to almost any eyeshadow look. Use a tiny amount over your eyelid, and pat down before using any other cosmetics. It will stay on for hours!
7. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 2-Step Longwear Lipstick, $29.95
A highly pigmented formula which is packed with hyaluronic gel to create soft, smooth lips and won’t cause any irritable dry patches. Apply the colour onto freshly exfoliated lips, then use the other side to lock-in moisture.
