Tag - The One and Only.

I love these kind of post's!
So a big thank you to one of my favourite Blogger's! Jessie at allthingsbeautiful-x who tagged me in this great post.
Where I can share my must have beauty item's.
If you don't already follow Jessie... Go and check out her blog!

This tag is the The One and Only tag where you have to share your holy grail make up products.

The Question: If you could only have one ____ what would it be? And, why?

Primer - I don't actually use a primer :O and I never have. Would be more than happy if someone could recommend a really good one for me to try out though? I usually just pop on a bit of moisturiser before I apply my foundation. Olay - Anti wrinkles (better to make a start early) eyy ha ha!

Base Product - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible I've used this foundation for quite some time. I'm a L'Oreal lover and swear by their stuff. Its a long lasting liquid foundation that's suppose to last up to 16 hours. I wouldn't say that it lasts that long, but it is really good! I use 260 Golden Sun.

Concealer - Rimmel match perfection concealer. Come's in a tube with a brush applied at the end.

Powder - I don't use a powder after my base as I like my face to have a glow to it rather than a dully matte powder.

Blusher (cream or powder) - Although I'm more of a bronzer type. I do have the odd days where I do go for a more girly look and use a blusher. If I do I use Sleek - Rose Gold or sometimes I use the Glossybox blusher it's quite nice but it has no shimmer.

Bronzer - I'm really into Collection 2000 bronzer at the minute, which is a shimmering glow powder. I use Mosaic Glow 6. You don't need much of this as its really shimmery! I love to wear it in the summer to give you that glow. 

Highlighter - I use MeMeMe - Beat the blues in oyster gold. It's a replica of the benefit moon beam. 

Make up brush (single) - Real Techniques - Multi tasker. I was going to say one of my eye shadow blending brushes, but if I were to choose between eye shadow or bronzer. Bronzer would win hands down!

Eyebrow product - I don't know what I would do without my 30 day mascara by Colorsport. It's a home tinting kit for your eyebrows and lashes! I do mine once a month it usually last's quite a few weeks. When they start to fade I just fill them in with a Rimmel eyebrow pencil in dark brown 001.

Eye shadow -  I really, really, really love the eye shadow 'SHY' in the MUA Undress me too - eye shadow palette. I don't know what I would do without it! I use it in the inner corner of my eyes and under my brows to highlight.

Eyeliner - I'm not really a huge eyeliner girl! I have the odd days where I apply a retro/vintage flick though. When I do this I use the L'Oreal Paris - Gel Intenza eyeliner in pure black.

Mascara -  L'Oreal Paris - Lash Architect in midnight black. I don't think ANYONE will ever get me to change my mind on this mascara. Most of my friends are now using it thanks to me.. It really is that good. If you've never tried it I really recommend you to!

Lipstick, lip gloss or lip stain - This is the hardest one for me... I'd have to go for LIPSTICK! Please don't make me choose just the one :( If I had to I'd probably go for the MUA - Shade 1 which is a deep red and is only £1.00!

Lip liner - Hmm I've really enjoyed using the Model Co lipliner that I got free in a Glamour magazine I bought the other month. It's an illusion nude lip liner.

Lip balm - Vaseline with cocoa butter. Although I don't really have to use a balm that much I love the smell of this one. Make's me want to eat it! :/

Nail polish - This is a hard one for me too! I love my nail polishes and have so many different brands. I just had a look in my nail box and I have to admit that it was such a hard choice, BUT my favourite has to be The Rimmel 60 seconds in - 320 Rapid Ruby. It's a really deep vintage red. Quite vampy!
And breathe!
that was a hard one
So here are my must have beauty items if I were to choose.
Do you use any of the product's or brand's that I have mentioned?
Go on give it a go!
If I haven't tagged you.. Feel free to join in!
Let me know when and if you've done it though, I'd love to check it out.

  7. Heeeey beaut!

    This tag is ace, I'm doing it right now! Thank you for tagging me, loved reading yours! Question... The mascara you mentioned, how does it make your eyelashes look? Is it more for volume or definition? Definitely on the hunt for a new mascara! I want to pick up that MeMeMe highlighter too, sounds fab. I've never tried ANY of the MUA lip sticks, think I need too considering it's so affordable!

    My post will be up at some point today!

    Lots of love

    1. I'll definitely go check out your blog post today hun.
      Believe it or not it's both! Depending on what you go for I'm not too sure if it will be your cup of tea. I like my eyelashes to look full and long.. It definitely gives that effect. I never ever ever wear mascaras that are fine on my lashes. I'll try and get a post up today about the mascara so you can see before and after pictures :)
      The MUA lipsticks are so good.. I wear a really vintage deep red colour and it doesn't budge at all.
