Favourite Makeup Products 2012

Foundation - The Two foundations i have reached for, for the majority of 2012 is my Bourjois Healthy mix in Vanilla & L'Oreal Lumi Magique in Rose Ivory which surprises me as they are both Drug store & cost me less than £10!

Concealer - It's got to be Rimmel Match Perfection this is great for undereye as it Conceals, brightens & lasts all day. 

Bronzer - Without a doubt in my mind my favourite Bronzer this year has to be my NYC Smooth Skin in Sunny, it is the most natural looking matte bronzer, also very buildable from day to night & for less than £5 you can't go wrong.

Blusher - This was a tricky one but i settled on Accessorize merged blusher in Pretty Pink, it is a Stunning peachy pink colour with an added sheen great for a subtle highlight during the day, again drugstore for around £6.

Eye Shadow - There have been quite a few new find this year which i really liked using, Maybelline colour tattoo in On & On Bronze, L'Oreal Infallible in Amber Rose & Iced Latte but i have also been reaching for my Naked Palettes & Wet n Wild Comfort palette, So many pretty colours to choose just one! -Sorry...

Mascara - L'Oreal Volume million Lashes in Black, this makes my lashes look amazing - Thick, Full, Long & fluttery, i have used for years on & off trying different ones, but always come back to this one. Around £10.

Eyeliner - I'm not one for using black liner in my water line as i think it makes my eyes look smaller when i wear my glasses, also i usually fail when i try to do a winged look :( but i have been loving the Maybelline  Scandeleyes Waterproof liner in nude & taupe for my waterline & black for smudging near my top lashes for a smokey look. Around £4.

Lips - I'm obsessed with my Nuxe Rive de miel lip balm to make my lips in tip top shape! Then i usually put on a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Precious, Honey or Cherish. I've also loved the Korres lip butters in Jasmine, Pomegranate & Quince during the day & for night my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy or my YSL Rouge Voluptè Perle in 107.

Highlight - Dior Amber Diamonds as it gives such a lovely natural glow to my skin & the shades can also be used for eyeshadows if needed.
