This post is a round up of our top three makeup faves of the moment. These are staples in our makeup routine at the minute and in our makeup bags at all times. 

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, Makeup Faves, Light and Luminous, dewy

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

The Nars Sheer Glow foundation is a cult classic and now one of our absolute makeup faves. We have talked a lot of products that give a radiant finish and create an inner glow and this product slots perfectly into that category. It comes in a wide range of shades and tones to suit all skin colours and has a medium to buildable coverage, perfect for every occasion. The silky consistency feels comfortable to wear and blends out beautifully.  While the name may say sheer, it can be worked to create a fuller coverage while still maintaining a healthy natural glow. A damp beauty blender will work to emphasis this dewy finish, however if you prefer matte look just set it all down with a translucent powder.

Benefit Gimme Brow 

Gimme Brow has been around for quite a while but it has made its way back into our favourites recently, especially now since the more natural eyebrow look is back on trend. Its tiny applicator is the perfect size to brush through the brows quickly and effortlessly without straying too far outside the lines. It is quite pigmented so, you can easily get away with using this alone to create a full and natural brow that has just been slightly tamed and tinted. Equally as easy, it could be used on top of whatever brow product you prefer to use to add some more volume while setting them in place.

Blank Canvas Master Series One Palette, Makeup faves, nude, neutral shades

Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One  

This stunning palette consists of 12 neutral shades consisting mainly of warm matte shades and one buttery champagne cream shade which highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye perfectly. We’ve been loving it to create simple every day looks, especially using the first row of lighter brown shades. Using the bottom row of deeper and darker browns you can amp it up and create a beautiful matte Smokey eye, perfect for this time of year.

And to top it all off the Master Palette comes with the E40/41 Double Ended Tapered Crease Blender/Smudger brush. What’s not to love.

So, now you have read out top three makeup faves at the minute why don’t you let us know what yours are. We’d love to find some new beauty secrets!
