My foundation collection. I forgot to put my powder foundation from Kiko in this shot but even so this is still a humble collection simply because I am SUPER fussy about foundation if it isn't close to perfect I'm not going to buy it no matter what YouTube tells me to do 😜
My Holy Grail @narsissist Sheer Glow in Syracuse, @maccosmeticsuk stick foundation in NC42 and Select Tint in NC42, @kikomilano Second Skin in Warm Beige, #revloncolorstay #revlon in Toast. I also adore my Graftobian HD creme palette. I use all different kinds of brushes and sponges to apply but my fave brush is the Super Foundation brush by @royallangnickel.

Just look at this highlight! @sleekmakeup Solstice Palette. I love layering the cream as a base (loosened with a drop of facial oil first) and then using a fan brush to apply the powder over top for a blinding glow. For inner corners nothing beats @makeuprevolution Awesome Eye Foils. Just check out Platinum - seriously stunning.

@realtechniques and @makeuprevolution rose gold brushes. Fantastic quality, wash well and very little shedding. Excellent for cream and liquid products as they are all synthetic fibres. β˜†

Book: The extremely readable classic Robinson Crusoe. Classics are classics for a reason. Trust me when I say if you are more a modern book reader it's worth trying some of these out you will be pleasantly surprised.

Brow favourites. These are my go to products. Simple, clean and effective: @makeuprevolution Ultra Brow Kit in medium/dark - it's a gem of a kit with powders and waxes and a lovely highlighter and some little tweezers and brushes, @nyxcosmetics eyeshadow base - I use this to clean up and carve out my brows - it's actually the perfect tool to do this as it's thick and creamy but as it's meant as an eyeshadow base it sets beautifully, @pixiwoos lip brush - perfect to clean up the brows, @nyxcosmetics micro brow pencil in espresso, #loreal brow artist plumper - the best brow filler and setter ever, #mikyayj instant fix brow powder - I think you can only get this in the Middle East 😒, @anastasiabeverlyhills dipbrow pomade in dark brown, @royallangnickel short liner brush β˜†

The beautiful Eye and Lip Calligraphy Palette by #guerlain. Rich gold, taupe, champagne and black with vivid matte reds for the lips. "All he has is a lipstick, old and runny and smelling of artificial grapes, and some eyeliner and mascara. No eye shadow, no blusher. For a moment I think I won't remember how to do any of this.."

Ultra Blush and Ultra Contour Palettes by @makeuprevolution. These are so versatile and so essential I can't stop using them. The powders are finely milled so you get that lovely diffused soft focus effect without trying too hard.

Don't need to say much about this @anastasiabeverlyhills #glowkit in That Glow except that it makes me feel as excited as knowing Season 7 of Game of Thrones is coming soon!
Also the @ctilburymakeup cream highlight and contour kit.

Eyeliners are such a personal thing don't you think? That one trusted tool to perfect that wing and make it sharp enough to kill. My old favourite liquid liner used to be L'OrΓ©al Superslim but my current squeeze is definitely Maybelline's Matte Master Ink. @nyxcosmetics matte liner comes a close 2nd. An amazing eye khol which is also drugstore is @rimmellondonuk Scandaleyes so black inky creamy and does not budge. β˜†
Book: The Book Thief an unusual take on WWII written from the perspective of Death himself.
