YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE | BEAUTY TAG

29 July 2014



I saw that the lovely Rebecca from Autumn Leaves did this tag a bit ago which I thought would be a fun tag to do, all though hard at the same time but here are my answers.

Low End Brand - How hard is it to pick only one brand? For me it has to be Rimmel though there foundations, nail polishes, blushers and lipsticks are amazing and I would be pretty happy if I could only have make-up from this brand.

High End Brand - Again very hard to choose but for me it would have to be Mac another lover of there foundation and they have a range of everything I would be happy if I could only shop there too.

Primer - Very bad beauty blogger of me but I don't always prime, I use Mac studio cream moisturiser every morning at the minute and it works amazing as a primer! Review coming soon but I do like Benefits Porefessional for my nose,

Foundation/BB Cream/Tinted Moisturiser - Foundation is so hard to choose one as I have two ultimate faves but the one I wear daily is the Rimmel 25 hour it is medium to full coverage, flawless finish and lasts all day and night! BB cream I have been loving lately is the Maybelline Pure BB cream, it covers my redness and imperfections slightly and light to medium coverage, I never usually like BB creams but I am loving this for summer as its light weight and doesn't feel like anything on the skin. I never wear tinted moisturisers so couldn't comment on an only one for that. 

Concealer - What do you think? Obviously Collection lasting perfection.. duh!

Bronzer - I have recently just purchased Benefits Hoola and loving it but if I could only have one, it would have to be my Bare Minerals in Faux tan, perfect for contouring or bronzing to give you that summer glow and not muddy looking at all.

Blush - I am a massive cream blush kinda girl now and the one I reach for the most is the So Susan 8 hour stain cream blush, it doesn't have a shade name as there is only one but it lasts all day and gives you rosy cheeks to make your cheeks pop and look pretty.

Powder - I only really need powder in the summer and the only one I use is the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, again how original of me?

Setting Spray - I only have one and it's the Mac+ fix but I am not overly keen if you have any recommendations I would love to know in the comments below.

Eyebrow Product - I am such a noob when it comes to brows, I just pay for them to be done with some tint and occasionally powder them, the powder I use daily is the W7 brow bar for under £5 it does the job and I love it, I would love some product recommendations for noobs like myself though?

Eyeshadow/Palette - Naked 2 is my go to palette I adore it so much being a massive fan of nudes, creams and browns but I have recently bought a Charlotte Tilbury palette so who knows it could be in winner spot soon!

Eyeliner - I only ever wear liquid eyeliner on the top and I have adored using the Maybelline Black Shock gel eyeliner it stays put for hours, super easy to apply and I am pretty sure it is pretty much a dupe for the new Benefit one.

Mascara - I have two favorites again but my most reached that never lets me down is the Maybelline The Collosal volum' express, intense black that gives you wow lashes, volume and lengthening

Lipstick/Lipgloss/Balm - If I only had one lipstick? Are you kidding me, this is most probably the hardest question of them all, you can't do this to a girl aha. But I absolutely adore my new YSL lipstick and would be pretty happy only having that one but £25 is quite pricey to keep repurchasing so it would have to be the Bourjois Rouge edition Velvet lipsticks, they come in a range of fab colours and longevity is amazing. Ligloss would have to be the Lancome lip lover, these have converted me back to lipgloss I don't ever wear lipgloss anymore unless I am after a glossy finish on top of a lipstick but the lip lovers are very opaque, moisturing and come in gorgeous shades and for lip balm it would have to be my EOS one. 

Nail Polish - If I could only pick one brand it would have to be Barry M they do nail poish to the T, every shade imaginable, any finish you fancy and so affordable! They don't chip easily like most either and they look super cute stacked up in a row.

Beauty Tool -  Any Real techniques brush I would be pretty pleased with but my ultimate favorite for doing my foundation with is the expert face brush, blends out beautifully, gives my skin a flawless finish and so easy to use.
