Makeup That's Worth The Investment

Although high end products aren't a necessity in a makeup routine, investing in the right products can mean that you don't waste money and instead get the most out of your makeup. Today I am sharing with you a handful of the products I believe are worth the investment. 

Powder | If you're looking for a palette that's worth the money then look no further, as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette is the only one you need. This trio of powders is designed to treat all your dull skin woes and can easily be used to set, highlight and lightly bronze the complexion in an instant. I've been using this on a regular basis for the many months now and have barely made a dent in them. At £59 they are a pricey investment, but are one that will last you a long time and will transform your makeup. 

Blusher | For blusher, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushers are exceptional in pigmentation, formula and finish. Like their similar powders, you can use them frequently without making a dent and the full range of shades means you have an endless choice. 

Highligher | Whether it's Summer or Winter, there's one thing that my lacklustre skin craves and that's highlighter. I reach for a range of products when I want a faux glow, so investing in a few key pieces in my collection helps to make sure I'm topped up. For me, the Nars Copacabana Illuminator is a highlighter that I will continue to purchase. This multi purpose product can be used on it's own for a subtle sheen, mixed in with my foundation for an overall glow or used underneath another highlighter for an intense pop. 

Perfume | From their candles to colognes, Jo Malone never fails to impress me. All of their perfumes linger on the skin for hours and a bottle lasts longer than any of my other scents. For me I love the scent Peony and Blush Suede, but I have been venturing out into other floral, fruity fragrances to suit the changing seasons.  

Hand Cream | Although hand cream is an odd one out of this line up I had to include this must-have. If my hands are feeling rather sensitive or dehydrated, I like to apply a generous layer of the Aesop Resurrection Hand Balm* to soothe and heal them. With a calming lavender scent, this is perfect as a treatment before bed and the tube has lasted me a significant amount of time considering I use it on a regular basis. 

What products do you think are worth the investment?
