Whether you’re a makeup hoarder, new to makeup or simply love beauty, everyone has their favourites. So for this post I’ve teamed up with OhRosie so we can each talk about our top 5 beauty favourites. Before I begin I’m not going to claim to be a beauty addict/guru, in fact I’m still trying to work out how to do half decent eyeliner, but what I do know is what works for me, and hopefully for you guys too.



Let’s start with the best shall we. I feel like you just can’t go wrong with Chanel perfumes. They’re classic, chic and smell divine! I can leave the house barefaced but perfume is an essential. Smelling good is important ladies. This is my go-to scent for when I want to feel really feminine and sexy – the kind of perfume that lingers long after you’ve walked past. Coco Noir is a musky oriental scent and I highly recommend you go give it a sniff and maybe treat yourself to it.



Now onto another important one – concealer. Let me tell you I have spent a good few years looking for one to match my palest of pale skin and still cover my dark under eyes. Finally I have found all I need in this one. I’m definitely a #narsissist. If like me you’re also pale, this radiant concealer in the shade chantilly really is the bomb. It brightens under the eyes (obviously), lasts for hours and is so easy to apply. Such a lightweight feel when wearing it while having great coverage throughout the day. Trust me on this one and please recommend me other good pale options.



People have different views on what type of brows to have – natural, bushy, filled in and perfect, thick, thin… I lose track. And since I can be a bit lazy when it comes to my makeup, especially in the morning, I need something quick and easy. For me this brow gel works wonders in just a few strokes. First I brush my brows with a spoolie, then I use a brow pencil to lightly create shape and then this to fill and define. This brow shaper is perfect for more natural looking brows when applied lightly, but can also be applied heavier for a more intense brow. It comes in a range of shades, my one is in auburn to match my hair colour.



Every girl that has an interest in makeup has a mac lipstick or maybe a huge stash of them. Such cult lipsticks with a huge colour range and choice of finishes – but I’m sure you know that already. I discovered this beautiful shade a few years ago, had to have it and have kept on repurchasing it ever since. It’s this lipstick that always has people asking what I’m wearing on my lips. Mocha. I tend to wear this reddish-brown shade almost every day. It’s not nude, not too bold but just right for me, it’s my goldilocks lipstick.

As I said, I can be quite lazy when it comes to makeup so all I really need is a basic eyeshadow palette. The quality however is not basic. For an eyeshadow simpleton like myself that may go for a smokey eye from time to time, this is perfect. All I need in one – high quality pigment, compact and gorgeously packaged!
