Last week I took a look back at some of my favourite skincare products from 2014 here. I decided I’d also do the same for my makeup stash and I’ve picked a handful of products that really impressed me last year. Here goes…
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light – I was a bit late to the party on this product, I only got mine back in March I think. I chose Diffused Light as the yellow tone is just perfect for my red prone skin. It’s so hard to describe the finish of this powder but it gives skin a really subtle glow and helps to even skin tone at the same time. I also have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder trio palette but I still haven’t used it yet, it’s so pretty I just want to look at it!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer – I love the collection lasting perfection concealer but I started to find it a bit dry for using under my eyes. I had seen a few people recommend the Rimmel Wake Me up concealer so I decided to try it out. I think this is just the perfect undereye concealer. It’s moisturising, illuminating and it provides good coverage, I haven’t really tried a concealer that managed all three. It’s definitely one I will be buying again and again.
Makeup Revolution Makeup – I haven’t picked one product as there were just so many I loved, most of my makeup buys in 2014 were from Makeup Revolution! You can read all of my hauls and reviews here. The products are just amazing value for the quality. If I had to pick I would recommend the Flawless Eye Palette, the Blush and Contour palette in Hot Spice and the Peach Lights highlighter.
Super BB Cream – I finally tried these thanks to rave reviews from Makeup Monster and Total Makeup Addict. My beloved Catrice BB cream was discontinued so I needed to find a suitable replacement. These are everything they promised to be they give good coverage but feel dewy on the skin and protect it with a strong SPF. I have both the purple and the gold. The gold is slightly paler but both suit my pale skintone well.
These are my absolute favourite makeup products from 2014. When I was thinking about the products I’ve tried It made me realise I need to branch out and try some new brands, so I’m working on a list of brands I want to try this year, any excuse eh! Did you have any favourite makeup from 2014?
