2015 Makeup Favourites

2015 Makeup Favourites

Like most other beauty bloggers I have been reflecting on my favourite makeup products from the past year and have put them all into one blog post, my 2015 favourites. I have some new finds along with some old favourites that might have appeared in last year's version, but nonetheless they were all products I reached for continuously over the past 12 months.

Let's start with face products. The Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue was a new product for me back in the summer and I have used it a lot over the past 6 months. It is a gorgeous dewy, tinted moisturiser product that has a very light coverage so is fantastic to use if you need your skin to look a bit more awake without the coverage. Having said that, you can build the coverage up if necessary without it looking like you have a lot of makeup on. The shade is also a really good match for me which is great as so many tinted moisturisers are too dark for me.

For concealer I have been reaching for the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer for covering spots and dark circles. I have a love-hate relationship with this product as sometimes the shade doesn't look right on my skin however for most of the past year the shade has worked for me. It rarely looks heavy on my skin, covers everything and lasts all day, as the name suggests.

Next up, powder. I love using the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural as it is lightweight and doesn't completely mattify my skin so if I am using something like the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue it remains dewy but allows me to control how shiny my skin looks.

I love bronzing my skin subtly so that my skin looks a bit healthier and to do this I have loved using the Sleek Face Contour Kit which also contains a really gorgeous highlighter which I use almost every day. They are both really long lasting and not too intense, so completely day appropriate which is great.

I have a love-hate relationship with my eyebrows but one product that can help make them look a bit better is the Sleek Eyebrow Stylist. It has a slightly waxy consistency so is easy to apply and it lasts pretty much all day. The shade is also a really good match for me as it is slightly red toned so looks better on me than grey toned products due to my red hair.

Earlier on in the year I picked up my first By Terry Ombre Blackstar and I will continue to purchase more. They have a beautiful, creamy texture which is really long lasting and the shade range is really good too, so there will be something for everyone.

I have two mascara favourites from last year, one new favourite and one old one. I will start with the old one, the Clinique High Impact Mascara. It is volumising and doesn't clump my lashes together or make them look spidery like so many other mascaras do. This one is my go to for when I don't want anything too dramatic, but for a more dramatic look I have been going for Benefit's Roller Lash. This mascara is similar to the Clinique one, only slightly more dramatic. I love using this one when I do a cat eye or a slightly more smokey eye as it makes the eyes stand out even more.

Finally lip products. Obviously MAC Lipsticks had to make the cut as I use them all of the time and I cannot fault them. I love the different formulas that they have and the range of colours is also fantastic. I also love using the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob for evening out my lip line, occasionally over lining my lips and using as a liner underneath other lipsticks. It is matte which makes it more long lasting than glossier finishes and the shade is perfect for using underneath lipsticks as well as using it on its own.

So there are my 2015 makeup favourites. What products did you love last year?
