Weekend makeup 🤓
I'm lying, it's not weekend, it's from a week or two ago, I just forgot about it. I also took about 20 selfies, and this was the only half decent, non-blurry one 😩 don't ask me about this awkward half-ass smile... I don't know what I was thinking ❌
I can't remember all the makeup so excuse all the gaps 😜
💮Soap and glory primer, MAC Pro long wear concealer, Soap and Glory kick ass powder, MAC Gingerly, Becca Champagne Pop
💮Freedom eyebrow pomade, Benefit brow gel, Tartelette in Bloom palette, maybelline master precise liner, Maybelline Plush mascara
💮NYX soft matte lip cream in Cannes

Travel products 🔅
These are the products I generally choose to take with me when I'm away from home, they contain lots of staples and sometimes I change up my concealer or eyeshadow palette 😄
But on the whole, these are the usual suspects ! I will list all products and mini reviews later, as I'm going for my fave millennial meal of the day ... Brunch ! 🥑🍳 (is it even brunch if you don't get avocado and eggs!)

Palette of the day - Urban Decay Shadow Box
🤗 I love the quality of US shadows, they're fairly unrivalled in my opinion, apart from my Tartlette palette. I love the range of shades, but I wish there was more mattes !

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Not makeup related but feeling very vlogger with this set up!
Also so gutted about my @beautybaycom order ! 😖 see my story for the mix up, so annoying 🙁

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Favourite base products 😋
⭕️Nip and Fab foundation - in a thin dropper formula, gives a beautiful sheer finish if needed and can be blended out easily
⭕️Soap and Glory Primer - I'm really enjoying this, but I have to say, I prefer the silicone pore filling abilities of my Smashbox primer instead 😣
⭕️ Mac tinted moisturiser - still trying to finish this !
⭕️ Loreal Highlight in Golden Glow - I mix this in with my foundation or tinted moisturiser for that golden shimmery look, so glowy and bronzey, really love this stuff !

Sticking with a darker theme 😅
Really wish I'd picked up more things during Black Friday but trying to stick to my no-buy 😣
I have so much makeup that I don't already use so really do not need anymore !

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Some makeup mess on this Black Friday !
I made a very small @beautybaycom order but refraining from anything 😣

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Because the Morphe 36O is so versatile ! But be warned, not all the shades are great, I found the glitter shades had very high fall out 😣

Favourite eye brushes 😙
I use this brushes everyday, and I have done for so long
They are by @elfcosmetics and I bought them online when they used to be so cheap ! I know the price has gone up quite a lot since I purchased this, which is a shame.
However, so far these have lasted well and I wash them very regularly with no shedding.
I would like to buy some new eye brushes so if you have any you recommend then let me know down below 👇🏾

KIKO Contour Sticks 🥔
I feel a little silly doing a review of these as I bought these when they were part of a collection, so I'm quite sure you can't get hold of them anymore, so my apologies ! 😣
They are creamy chubby sticks which I use to contour with mainly, the brown is a warm toned deep brown that blends really nicely.
The highlight shade for me is slight too pale and I prefer a more golden bronze highlight.
See the second pic for swatches !
I don't usually cream contour as I find it doesnt look natural enough on me, but these do a great job 🙂

FOTD 💎

This lighting is so rubbish 😣
I can't remember half the details for this picture as I was half asleep taking it, but let me know if you want specifics
🔮As a side note, how amazing are Zara fragrances! So impressed with this one as it smells so good 😍

Daily brow tools 😎
😻Soap and Glory Archery - it's a double ended pencil, with a felt tip and a crayon, I use the crayon end every morning just to fill in any brow gaps, I don't love it but it works for now, but I won't repurchase as I find it much to under pigmented personally
😼Benefit Ready Set Brow - amazing stuff, I use it every single day as it's so good. Definitely will be repurchasing as I truly think it's the best Brow gel I've used !

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Some makeup of the day 🔆
This lighting is appalling, I've had to edit this picture so much it's shocking, just to make it look normal 😩
💡Primark Primer Water - absolutely love this stuff, keeps my makeup looking fresh all day
💡MAC Blush in Fever - great for colder months for a flush of colour, but it's so pigmented so it's a pain to blend out
💡Urban Decay Vice palette - I love the metallic shades in this but it lacks a crease colour so it's hard to use on its own, but I love UD shadows, they're some of my favourite
💡NARS Creamy Concealer in Gingerly
💡MAC Tinted Moisturiser
💡KIKO Water Eyeshadow in 208

Tom Ford Quad in Nude Dip 🔆
I'm trying to use this more, I like the shade range but I wish there was a matte crease colour instead, I like the feel of the shadows but not massively struck in general.
Is it worth the splurge ? For the luxe feel, yes. But for eyeshadow quality, I prefer Urban Decay 😣

Beauty By Vads (@beautybyvads)

Daily face 😅
I'm becoming a creature of habit and using the same products daily, even down to the lip colour 😫 terrible really for someone whose makeup collection is so regrettable large...
Anyway, my current daily favourites are ..
🔅Nars creamy concealer, set with Soap and Glory Kick Ass Powder
🔅Soap and glory archery brow pencil (not a fan, trying to use up) set with Benefit Brow Gel (major love for this)
🔆Maybelline Plush mascara (its okay, trying to finish)
🔅MAC Gingerly blush (holy grail) and highlighted with KIKO water shadow 208
🔅Rimmel Scandaleyes Pencil in Nude (been through so many)
🔆Sleek Pout Polish in Perfect Plum
