If you could only have one _____ what would it be?

23 Aug 2013

I was tagged by Rachel from Beauty Queen UK to do this 'one and only' tag! It's all about the one product you love of each of these categories!

The Question: If you could only have one ______ what would it be? 
And, in a few words, why?

As you're reading this you will start to see I used to have an obsession with MAC! I am trying to switch to more natural brands but I am still using up my old products before I buy new ones so a lot of my answers are simply MAC MAC MAC!

Primer - I've never really felt like I need a primer. I'm not the kind of person to take my make-up bag out with me to top up during the day - I just let it fade off haha! So a primer isn't really a necessity for me.

Base Product - I have recently been loving my Madara Sun Flower Tinting Fluid. It's not quite as heavy as a foundation but I love using it just to give me a bit of colour and to look 'healthier'. You can read my review here

Concealer -  I have always loved MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer and I have recently tried YSL's Touche Eclat which I use over the top if I've not had much sleep and my dark circles are really prominent. 

Powder - I don't always use powder because although I have quite oily skin, it's never really shiny. I love having dewy skin and would always choose an illuminating foundation over a matte one. If I'm going out at night though and need a bit of extra coverage or staying power I use my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Plus.

Blush (cream or powder) - I really love a MAC blusher that me and my sister Mia both own but I can't remember the colour! I will try and find it and update this post! It's a lovely pale pink shade that works perfectly with my skin tone and looks lovely when I have a tan too!

Bronzer - I love my Vapour Solar Translucent Bronzer. It's in a creme form in a stick so it's dead easy to apply and blends in well to give me a hint of colour! You can read my review here.

Highlighter - MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl is my all-time favourite highlighter! It's give off such a lovely glow and makes my cheek bones look so dewy!

Make-Up Brush (single) - I would have to say my Real Techniques Buffing Brush which I use for my foundation as it blends in the product perfectly!

Eyebrow Product - I used MAC eyeshadow in Brun for my eyebrows - it's the perfect shade for filling them in and lasts all day.

Eye shadow (single) - I really love Patina by MAC! Especially mixed with Mulch in the outer corner for some depth and definition. 

Eyeliner - I don't think I have a favourite eyeliner. I tend to just use a brown or black eyeshadow but I have used Bobbi Brown liquid eyeliner which is great.

Mascara - I recently received a mascara in my Souk Souk August box which I love but I haven't had a chance to try it out properly yet, so I would have to say my AVON Super Drama mascara. Review here.

Lipstick, Lip Gloss or Lip Stain - MAC Hue has always been a firm favourite of mine. I've been through a good couple of sticks in the last year or so!

Lip Liner - I don't use lip liner everyday but I have used some before when I wear red lipstick. I use a darker red shade from Barry M to contour the outside of my lips for a ombre look!

Lip Balm - Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Balm is my all-time favourite lip balm. It smells delicious and can be used for more than just your lips! I did a post on my top five lip balms you can read here.

Nail Polish - I don't think I have a favourite. My sister has loaaaaads of nail varnishes so this would actually be impossible for her to answer and she has stolen a few of mine so I can't even remember what I have! I would say a coral shade though as I do love to wear that colour in the summer!
