The 2014 Makeup Favourites


Now, the makeup favourites.I know, this should be online like...last week? But ugh...Life is crazy. I've been having a huge blogblock where I can't write anything. I just can't...It's so depressing because I actually have a few good ideas but I just can't write them here.
Anyway, I'm getting better. I've been hanging out with friends and trying to be as happy as possible. Time heals.

Now, into the beauty-stuff. I tried to many new things in 2014...and the same will happen in 2015 for sure. You'll notice that I didn't choose a palette, mostly because I couldn't decided between the Naked 3 and the Nude Tude...So I decided to not include them. Next time maybe?



So, starting off with the face products, my favourite base/foundation was for sure the Benefit Big Easy. I like it for lazy days where I just want to even out my tone and leave. I like how I can manage to not use a powder with this one, since it has a cream-to-powder finish. I already have to new bases to try out during 2015 but, I might repurchase this on in the future, specially for the summer time.
As for concealer, MAC Studio Finish Concealer was good find, it's amazing to cover any blemishes and marks that I might have due to hormonal spots and other problems - like a food allergies...
In terms of highlighting, Benefit High Beam and Benefit What's Up were my choices. Both look amazing on my skin, although I'll be sincere - What's Up deserves more points because I never expected it to be this good. I'll get the full size for sure!

In terms of blush and contour the prize goes to the Nars Orgasm and Laguna duo. Seriously, when I don't know what to wear, I like this. It looks and super pretty on my skin. Pure perfection I say!
Last but not least from this section, the Catrice Prime and Five Mattifying powder is a long-time favourite. I finally came to terms into ditching my old Rimmel Stay Matte power - which I don't really like by the way - and although I might try one or another powder, this one is a safe choice and I'll probably promote him as handbag staple.



Eye stuff. Simple and fresh was the key.
So because of that, Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit deserves a spot here. You all know how much I love and I even purchased another shade because how much I loved this one. Easy to apply, And the same goes to the MAC Paintpot in Painterly. I mean, it's my favourite base. I might use my eye primers but I love to use this one as well because it makes a huge difference. It's one of the best purchases I ever did from MAC.

The VM Hypoallergenics Ooh-La-lash Mascara is so far the best mascara I ever tried in my life. Seriously, I mean : I don't react to it, I don't cry, I don't feel my lashes heavy and it doesn't smudge. It's made in Korea and made me super curious to try out Korean and Japanese Mascaras, because I'm tired of ending up with a bottle of Mascara that's a pain to use due to the fact that I can't wear it during a full school-day.
The Catrice Made to Stay Inside Eye  Highlighting Pen deserves the award for the Longest name ever...besides that, it's really amazing. It stays on my waterline, I didn't get any bad reaction and the colour is just perfect to making me look more awaken. I'll be repurchasing this for a while.

Lastly but not least, the Argent Makeup 201 Brush is the perfect blending brush. I mean it. It has the right size, the bristles are super soft and my makeup never looks scary or crazy. And epic win, I dare to to say.

  

Lastly but not least my lipstick choices go to the Too Faced La Crème Lispicks in Cinnamon Kiss and In the Buff. Both have one of the most comfortable formulas I've ever encounter and the pay-off is really good. I was able to snatch them during the Summer Sales last year and I'm really happy for it.

I Know, this is probably one of the worst posts I've even done but I promise that I'll try to get new content with better quality during the rest of the month, specially reviews and a huge Empties Post. There's also more makeup shopping to show - a shame, I know. So stay tune!

Thank you again for everything, take care!
With Love,
Diana.
