Anyone help me with my Christmas list? Make up recommendations please.
DH is struggling with ideas, so I said I'd make some suggestions. I'd really like some new make up, although am a bit rubbish with that sort of thing. I use a foundation and blusher I'm happy with but would love: Warm neutral beigey set of eyeshadows Dark brown eyeliner pencil type thing (I have a Clinique one in black I like...) Long lasting subtle lipstick/ colour (warm)
Any recommendations for these or anything else it'd be worth me getting? Has to be quick and easy for me to use it though!
Bobbi Brown has a lovely collection on just now in tortoiseshell packaging. I have the warm eye palette and there are about six neutral tones in it, all of which I will use. There are other items in the collection too and I'm sure it will include lip colour although I haven't actually seen it.
That sounds lovely. I think I found it on john Lewis, but it's out of stock. Is it the one where they're all 6 in a line? I think £37.50 might've a little pricy for DH to bring himself to spend on make up, too ;)
Good subtle highlight is mac strobe cream, no glitter or shimmers or anything it's just very glowy and you can put it over anything or even all over before foundation. A good all out highlighter is albatross by nars..very golden!
The naked palettes are fab ( I have all 3, ooooppppss!) so I'd agree with adding them. They cover everything from light daytime makeup to heavy smokey eyes and bridal type looks.
Dior has a new lib balm product out which is supposed to be good for all lip colours, it's called colour awakening balm I think. Not a strong colour (I'd say you probably should try those generally) but good. For strong colours the Clinique chubby sticks are lovely , there are a few gift sets about with them this is out of stock but might come back for example.
Highlighter probably isn't essential although if you want one, YSL Touche Eclat is kind of the classic. For concealer it might be worth seeing if there is one which goes with your foundation (for shade match) but I personally like benefit booing.
