When it comes to makeup shopping, I always tend to reach for the high end, luxe products to curb my obsession and make a dent in my bank account. Although there are many high street gems, the rose gold or black sleek packaging of these luxe products always lures me back in. Whether you're looking to splurge on several or keep one for a special occasion, today I am sharing with you my top high end picks.
This line up wouldn't be complete without a few Charlotte Tilbury mentions. Their Dolce Vita Palette, Filmstar Bronze and Glow and Bond Girl Lipstick have all been regular features on this blog due to their lustful appearance, high quality formulas and divine finishes. The Matte Revolution lipsticks come in an array of shades, I think Very Victoria is next on my wishlist to buy.
Although the high street has some highlighting gems, I tend to reach for luxe highlighters more often than not. The Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter has been spoken about on many blogs since its release and for very good reason too. Whenever my skin needs a pick me up, this golden shimmer adds a dreamy glow to the complexion in just a sweep. Another one of my favourite picks is the theBalm's Mary Lou Manizer. It is currently on it's last legs, but this honey hued highlighter adds the perfect sheen to the cheeks.
Two products that always seem to make their way into my makeup bag are the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and Blushers. The finely milled powders help to brighten and treat all your dull skin woes. Luminous Flush delivers a soft flush of colour and radiant finish which is unlike any of my usual matte pink blushers.
When it comes to dreamy duos no one does it better than Nars, and the Kalahari Eyeshadow Palette is no exception. This copper combo compliments my eye colour and can create a smokey eye with ease. As for lips, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Cruella- a vivid blue toned red and Bahama- a brown nude, are both shades that everyone needs to swatch when they're next in store.
Anastasia Beverely Hills is a brand I have only recently discovered, but their high quality products encased in a contrasting black and rose gold packaging have me smitten. The Dip Brow Pomade is good eyebrows in a jar and can easily create fuller, defined brows in a few strokes.
