I put this product into a spray bottle, and use it between deep-cleaning my brushes (which I do with a moisturizing anti-bacterial hand soap). I'm really OCC about clean brushes, so I always spot clean with this spray before I do my makeup.
2. Boscia Oil-Free Nightly Hydration
This is my HG (holy grail) moisturizer! I've been using it for the past few months and it's so kind to sensitive skin and just feels like heaven. If I'm going to be out in the sun, I add SPF to it and during these colder months I've been adding a few drops of Argan oil for extra hydration. I will definitely keep repurchasing this moisturizer, love.
3. Josie Maran Argan Oil
This is 100% pure argan (Moroccan) oil, and although it's more pricey than the kind I use to buy on eBay - the quality is a lot better. This oil is fabulous for your hair and skin. As mentioned above, I add one to two drops to my moisturizer, apply it under my brows and a tiny bit under my eyes, I also use it in my hair and apply it to any part of my body that needs extra love. A little goes a long way.
4. Too Faced Primed & Poreless
I've been enjoying this primer, and I love that it smooths my face before applying makeup and that it hasn't broken me out. I only use this on days when I need my makeup to last for a long time, as you don't want to be applying unnecessary products to your skin. It does a good job keeping my makeup in place and although I still need to touch up my T-zone now and then, I do it a lot less when the primer is on.
5. MUFE HD Foundation (my shade 153)
This is another HG product of mine. Love love love! I've tried a ton of foundations, and this is in the top 3. I apply it using my Real Techniques buffing brush which is fab - definitely worth getting!
6. Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner
The super fine brush gives me so much precision and control unlike any other. Mine has been finished for the past 3 weeks, and Urban Decay isn't available here (along with a whole list of other brands - to all my international readers, I understand your frustration lol). I tried two others, and it just doesn't come out the same. Can't wait to get another one and doll up my eyes again!
7. Skindinavia Setting Spray
This product is great for getting rid of the powdery look from your face after applying your makeup. It also does a great job of keeping my makeup on for longer, which means less touch ups. I've also heard of people applying this before applying makeup, so it could act as a primer as well.
8. Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara
As with the Urban Decay liner, this mascara is one of those products I will always go back to. Nothing else compares (for my lashes personally). The brush works so well and the formulation is perfect. I've tried others, but this gives my lashes the most "ompf".. :)
