The Best Of 2015 | Make up

The best of makeup 2015, 2016, Benefit., clinque, collection, favourites, L'Oreal, Lord and berry, mua, Newlook, revolution, W7, Yearly,

2015 has been my year to experiment with makeup and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I have quite a few favoruites that I go back in between so narrowing it down to one was quite difficult. I have cheated once and picked two products.

My Favourite Primer of all time is the Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer. It is the best budget primer I have used yet and it leaves my skin so super soft I feel like a new born baby! -Yes it is that soft!

My favourite foundation of the year is the L'oreal Infallible 24 hour Matte foundation, I can never go wrong with this foundation. It covers all my redness on my cheeks but never looks cakey on the face. It is very light weight but still has great coverage.

My favourite concealer is the standard Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. I have spoke about this concealer numerous times and it has never left my make up bag, it covers anything and lasts all day.

I have two bronzers on this list that I couldn't pick between because they do two very different things. The Benefit Hoola Bronzer is a all round perfect summer product that suits my skin tone really well and gives me a great summer glow. My other product is the Clinque Chubby Sculpting Stick which I love to use on comfy or no make up days to give my face some definition. It is also a great contour product for nights out.

My favourite blush product from the year has to be The W7 Honey Queen Homecomb Blush. I am not the biggest blush fan but when I do wear a little I like to wear this mix of blush colours together on the apples of my cheeks. It is more of a darker blush so it doesn't look too much on my face.

I have become a much bigger fan of highlighter this year and I have quite a few that I go in between which are both powder and cream. The highlighter that I have been reaching for the most these past few weeks is the Newlook Baked Highlighter in 93 Gold. This is the perfect cross between a bronzey glow look which I have been opting for quite a lot lately.

My favourite eyebrow product has to be the MUA Power Brow Highlight and Shape. It is so easy to use and you can't go wrong with it. The brow nib is the perfect shade for my hair and the highlighter is a great add on to define your brows.

My favourite eye palette has to be the first palette I bought this year, the Revolution Redemption Essentials Matte 2 Palette. This year has been my year to discover the wonders of eye shadows, before this year I had never touched a eye shadow and now I buy a new one every month (much to Cal's dismay). The Revolution palette is my favorite because it has everything you need to do a simple day look or a ramped up night look. I particularly like to use this palette for smokey eye looks.

I haven't worn much eyeliner this year as I prefer the look of mascara by itself as it looks softer and more wearable, but on them days or nights were I have wanted to go a bit more bolder I have used the Lord + Berry Kohl liner. It is really easy to use and great to smudge out to create a bolder effect.

My favourite mascara of the year is the L'oreal Volume Million Lashes, my mascara collection has grown considerable this year but when I want to use something I know for sure will work, I pick this mascara. It is really good at separating lashes and opening out your eyes.

I found it really hard to choose a favourite lip product but in the end my love of Newlook nude lips trumped all my other lipsticks. My all time favourite nude lipstick of the brand is the Camel shade. I wrote a whole blog post all about the lipstick which you can read here.

  1. The L'Oreal foundation is my definite next go to when my current one runs out. I've heard so much good things about it and I think it'll suit my skin type hopefully. The Clinique Sculpting Stick sounds interesting, I might have a look at it when I'm next in town. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Totally agree with you on the Collection concealer, it never leaves my bag now I've finally got round to trying it. It is honestly so good for the price! Also, Hoola is amazing. I got it in a set and its definitely my favourite bronzer and contouring colour ever!x
