There are tonnes of products out there and I’ve purchased my fair share but if I had to choose my go to products then these would be it. These are the products I reach for and wear most of the time.
I have a pretty simple look and only switch it up with lips or heavier eyes, otherwise these are my basics…
I’m not a huge foundation lover as I prefer to keep things very sheer and light on my face. So, it’s odd that my all-time favourite foundation is a rather heavy one, which by the way is great for dry skin. I picked this up in Sephora overseas and I have been in love with it ever since. This is the BEST foundation for photos, my skin always looks amazing and ‘airbrushed’. I use it with a beauty blender for a sheerer look and when I feel like looking super done up, I use a stippling brush. I cannot wait to encounter another Sephora just so that I can pick up a few more of these.
I love a 5-minute face and this product is perfect for that, I use this on my cheeks and lips and find it glides on super easily. Although it’s not the longest lasting product it sure is the quickest and easiest and for that reason I reach for it almost every single day.
I found the Revlon skin lights in a sale basket at Dischem one day and thought I would give it a go. How I now wish I had purchased a few of them (I don’t think you can find these very easily) I love tapping some of this onto my cheek bones for a gorgeous bronzy glow. If I’m not feeling the ‘bronzed ‘look then my other favourite is this limited edition MAC highlighter. It the most beautiful soft subtle pink and you can go quite heavy handed with this but still look only glowy and not like a disco ball.
These are my favourite day highlighters and ones that I alternate with every day. I always think one needs tiny bit of highlighter just to look dewy and fresh.
Finally, my favourite mascara, I’m not really an experienced mascara purchaser. I’ve found items I really love and just stuck with them. My sister introduced me to this a couple of years ago and I literally wear this every single week day. The best part of this is how easily it comes off. I hate having to really wash my eyeballs to try not look like a raccoon the next day. All you need is warm water and it easily slides off in tubes. It’s not the most intense and fulling mascara out there but for every day wear it is simply the BEST.
Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate, hope you have a lovely long weekend with your family.

My mom took a recent trip to India and brought us back some amazing gifts. One of my favourite items she got me, was this shopper bag. She knows how much I love the Taj Mahal, so it makes this bag that much more special. This is perfect for market days. It sturdy and has loads of space for purchases, which makes me super happy, maybe not so much David.
I’m usually not a huge bag person, as you can see in most of my outfit posts, and this is a great way to add something different to my looks but it’s also useful. Thanks mom for one of the best gifts! Sorry for wearing these shoes again! I promise I’m going to try, really hard, to not have this in every single post. TRY…
