Foundation Brush Favourites

Being makeup obsessed, i have tonnes of brushes. My favourite brushes are forever changing, as i have so many in my collection. I know which brushes work best with different bases that ive tried so i can really get the most out of my foundations. Here are my favourites of the moment.


Real Techniques Stippling Brush
I love this brush for natural looking foundations or bb creams. Its great foundations that are super lightweight and light coverage, such as Mac Face and Body. You can buff in circular motions with this brush, or stipple, to get more coverage. 

Real Techniques Nic's Picks Limited Edition Cheek Brush
This brush is amazing for a medium coverage. The bristles are so soft, and this brush will never leave you looking cakey. I love that the brush isnt too dense, it really sheers out the coverage of your foundation, leaving you with a more natural finish. 

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
I love this brush for a medium coverage foundation, such as Bourjois Healthy Mix. It works amazing at blending and buffing in the foundation, and gives a flawless, even coverage. The bristles are super soft and give an airbrushed look.

Ebay Flat Top Buffing/Kabuki Brush
The bristles are so densly packed, you can get an amazing high coverage with this brush. I love to use this brush with Mac Studio Fix to get a high coverage, and to cover all blemishes. It may be super dense, but the bristles are still really soft. This brush really does give you a flawless finish. You can purchase here.

What are your favourite foundation brushes?

Soap And Glory Peach Party Blush Brick




I haven't tried many soap and glory makeup products, but the things i have tried, ive been obsessed with. Peach Party has been on my wishlist for almost a year now, after discovering the beauty through the amazing missmakeupmagpie's post, last December! 

The packaging is typical soap and glory style - super cute and girly. I love that it comes with a mirror also, always handy!

This blush/shimmer brick contains 4 shades, all infused with gorgeous gold glitter particles. When swirled together, a pinky, rose gold shade is created. The pigmentation in this brick is insane.. and the powder's apply so silky smooth! No chalkyness what so ever. 

I love applying this to the tops of my cheekbones and the center of my face for a highlighted look. I sometimes sweep some over my blush too if im wanting some extra glow, and also, the shades alone make gorgeous eyeshadows!

Its no 'Soft And Gentle', but its still gorgeous, and definetly one to try if your a highlighting junkie like me!

I've Been Loving...



Mac Tempting Eyeshadow 
I've been reaching for this shadow alot during this week because i can swirl a fluffy blending brush into this shadow and apply all over my eyes to create a fast, soft eye look for lazy days! The gorgeous golden shimmers in this bronzey brown shadow really make my eyes stand out.

Benefit Bella Bamba Blush
I love a medium pink toned blush and Bella Bamba is perfect! I love how pigmented this blush is, and how it leaves a sheen to the cheeks without looking like a disco ball. It applys so smoothly and blends like a dream.

Real Techniques Limited Edition Nic's Picks Cheek Brush
I've been loving this brush for applying my foundation. The super soft bristles leave my skin looking airbrushed, but not at all cakey. If anything, this brush sheers out the coverage of my foundation, to give more of a natural finish. 

Victoria's Secret Mango Temptation Ultra Moisturizing Hand & Body Cream
'mango nectar & hibiscus'
I love this super nourishing hand cream, and have been reaching for it so much recently. Because its so hydrating, i apply a thin layer to my neck sometimes to stop my tan from going patchy there. Its such a lovely cream, and has a lovely scent. The only thing i'd say is that it does take a while for it to soak in, but i dont mind.

What have you been loving recently?

Favourite Berry Combo


`


I recently purchased my first Nars cream blush in the shade Montenegro. I havent heard anything about this shade before, but fell in love with it after seeing swatches of the blush on google! Its an amazing deep burgundy, berry, wine shade, that is like no other in my collection. In the pan, its a pretty scary blush, but it blends in like a dream and can really give a natural flush to the cheeks. The texture is amazing, and Nars have seriously impressed me with their cream blushes!

Essie's Nail Polish in Wicked is a gorgeous, deep wine shade. In some lights, it looks a dark purple, brown or black, and in others it looks a berry, wine shade. I love how thick the applicator is and how opaque this shade is. With 2 coats, this polish looks amazing.

Autumn Face Picks


When it comes to Autumn, the peachy coral blushes get tucked away for a while, and the pink, bronze tones come out. I've always been obsessed with blushers and bronzers, and my faves practically change every week, but the ones ive been reaching for lately on these awfully freezing and dull days, are the ones i recommend for the autumn months. These blushers and bronzers instantly bring life to my face and make me look naturally flushed.





This shade will always be a favourite of mine, all seasons. But especially for autumn. Its a gorgeous plum, almost bronze shade.. So unique and gives an amazing warm sheen to the skin.

Mac Desert Rose
A beautiful medium pink with brown/mauve undertones, so perfect for most skin tones to add a rosy, flushed look to the cheeks.

This kit contains a perfect contour shade and a gorgeous highlight shade. I love that it comes with a mirror, which is great for on the go. I reach for this kit when i want chizzled cheekbones and a gorgeous glowy look.

The Balm Cabana Boy
Cabana Boy is so longlasting and is a medium muted pink with blue undertones. I love this blush for natural days. I love the packaging, its so cute, and the blush is crazy pigmented!

Mac Sunbasque
Sunbasque is another blush looks amazing all year round, but i love the neurtal tones for autumn. The peachy, shimmery bronzy tones give a natural, glowy flushed look to the skin.

This bronzer has too be one of my new faves! It gives a gorgeous but natural bronzed look to the skin without looking muddy or harsh. This shade has a slight sheen to it, which gives the illusion of healthy, naturally-tanned, glowing skin. This bronzer warms up the face instantly and gives the perfect bronzed glow to the cheeks!

Mini Makeup Haul




Urban Decay Naked Basics
When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, Urban Decay have never let me down.
The naked basics palette has been on my wishlist for a while now and i finally got my hands on it. I love how the packaging is so sleek and compact, and that it comes with a mirror!  The palette comes with 6 stunning matte shades, that are perfect for both day, and night time wear. 
The butter-like, silky smooth shades are so blendable and easy to work with. For £22, this palette is amazing. I've been using this palette everyday since i picked it up and im in love!


Maybelline Colour Tattoo - Caramel Cool
I love the on and on bronze shade, and thought id pick up another. I love all the golden, bronze shades and had to add this one to my collection. They apply so creamy, and last all day on my eyes. These colour tattoo's are great for lazy days when you cant be bothered to do a crazy eye look. I just sweep a layer of this over my lids and im good to go. 

Mac Dipdown Fluidline
I wanted to try something new for my brows, as ive been using benefit browzingz for almost a year now. I had tried this product a while back and just couldnt get used to it. This product is a gel liner, but many people use it for their brows. The formula is really smooth and creamy, and with a small tip brush, you can create really clean, perfect brows. It's not the easiest thing to use though,  you need a very steady hand and i find i need quite a bit of time to get my brows right with this product. A little goes along way, and this product definetly isnt for beginners... I really want to like this product, but i just find it too harsh and fiddly for everyday use.
