Best Base Products of 2013

Top base products 2013 foundation concealer powder seventeed estee lauder

If you've read any of my latest face-of-the-day type posts this line-up won't surprise you.  For the majority of this year, these three products have been applied almost daily, with the occasional mix-up.  I've talked about these so much that this will only be a short post - I won't babble on, but these are without a doubt my best base products of the last year.

Top Five Eye Products of 2013

Top Five Eye Products of 2013 L'Oreal Urban Decay Maybelline

Next up is my top five make-up products for my peepers.  I finally got around to purchasing a full size Urban Decay Primer Potion, and I'm so happy that I did.  With my oily skin, shadows are forever creasing on my lids after just a few hours, and this primer is the only thing I've found to keep everything in place.  I use the smallest amount on each lid, but it makes such a huge difference that I never apply eye shadow without it now.  Read a bit more about it in my post, here.

A few days ago I posted about my favourite face brushes, and today I'm going to share my picks for applying eye make-up.  I have quite a few eye brushes in my stash, but these six are my most used and most loved.  Again, there's quite a few Real Techniques choices, but there are a few more brands thrown into this post.

Since getting into make-up a good few years ago, I've built up quite a collection of make-up brushes.  I actually use every brush I have, and when I wash them I usually end up giving every single one a good scrub, but of course I have my favourites.  I've split this up into two separate posts - firstly I'll be talking about my favourite face brushes, and later in the week I'll be posting about my favourite eye brushes.  As you can see, I love Real Techniques brushes.  For me, the quality is perfect, they're easy to get hold of and they're affordable.  There are a few other brands thrown in, but my collection is made up of mostly RT.  I don't have any high-end make-up brushes.  Although I'm lusting after a few, until now my high-street options have served me perfectly.
