5 beauty products I couldn't be without.

There are just some things in life where you think thank god they created this, I usually find myself saying these things when it comes to make up and beauty products of any kind. I have gone through brand after brand trying to find the right foundation, nice primer or good eyebrow kit. Some of what works for me could be completely wrong for someone else, but currently right now Benefit is my saviour. I thought it would be nice to share with you all what 5 things I couldn't be without when it comes to make-up and hair. 



So far for me this is the best foundation I have found for both the type of skin I have and my skin tone. This is the closest I've found when it comes to skin tone and it seems to be working miracles on those dreaded dry patches that creep up on my face when it's the most inconvenient time for them to appear, it's always the way. I've only had one bottle of this foundation so far and it's lasted pretty well. The consistency is quite watery but for me that works better because when foundation is too thick it looks so clogged up all over my face, not a great look. Definitely recommend this!

2. Real Technique make up brushes. (Can be bought from Boots)


I am absolutely dying to try the bold metals collection from Real Technique but haven't got round to buying any yet. But this foundation brush and stippling brush have only very recently been two things I've found myself relying on more and more. I always used the Mac 190 foundation brush for quite a while but considering the real technique brushes are cheaper, I've definitely found them a lot better than my Mac brush. Just because something is more expensive doesn't always mean it's better. 



Another recent product I've been using more and more is this Prep & Prime from Mac. I don't know how or why this works for me because I really thought it would be the opposite from kind to my skin but it really does. It looked so thick and heavy I thought it would leave my skin looking caked but it doesn't at all and even better I can see it lasting a very long time! One of my favourite products from Mac and I will definitely be going back for more once I've used this one up. 

4. Benefit Brow Zings £24.50 

Sorry for the right photo, its been used lots of times already!

As sad as this sounds I really don't know what I'd do without this eyebrow kit now I've got it. It's been a long tough search for the perfect one but I found it at last!! It's opened my eyes to good eyebrows and getting that almost perfect shape, I mean nobody can do it as good as when you go to get them done at a beauty salon but this comes pretty close. It may be a little pricey but I have to say it is well worth the money and it's a long lasting product. I think everybody needs a good eyebrow kit in their make-up bag. 

5. Tangle Teezer £10.99


Not make up related but I had to chuck this in the list because it is definitely something that I could not be without now I have it and that is my wonderful Tangle Teezer! I remember seeing this when reading a post on Hannah Gale's blog and immediately went out and bought one, I am so thankful to her for introducing me to it, it is AMAZING. I have really long hair so after it's been washed it is an absolute nightmare to brush, but with this it's easy and gets all the knots out really quickly. It's even better because it doesn't pull half my hair out and I hear it's a winner when brushing kids hair because it's really gentle on the head and hair. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing what products I couldn't be without, do you have any favourite products you'd struggle without?
