L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte Foundation | This was a grower for sure (I hated it at first!) but it gives such a beautiful coverage and I love the velvety finish on my skin! Once I realised it hated every primer I owned and is best applied onto bare skin (with plenty of moisturiser), I fell in love quite quickly. It's a full coverage but, whilst I can definitely feel it on my face, it isn't mask-like or suffocating on my skin.
Lacura CC Cream | Because a girl's gotta have options when it comes to her base! I love this CC cream for a decent coverage that somehow manages to feel super light on the skin, yet still lasts well even on my oil-slick of a face.
Benefit High Beam | It was a close call between this and Sun Beam, but High Beam just pipped it to the post as it's more wearable year-round, whereas I only tend to reach for Sun Beam in the summer. I love the way a liquid highlight can brighten up the whole face and give such a healthy "glow".
Collection Sheer Loose Powder | I honestly don't know how many jars of this I've been through; it's cheap and cheerful but does the job really well for me, setting my foundation and any other liquid/cream products, and helping to keep oil at bay for at least a few hours.
NARS Douceur Blusher | I'm trying to be a bit more sparing with this lately after learning that it's been discontinued (sob!) but I love it. It's perfect either as a really natural flush of colour to the cheeks, or blended under the cheekbones as a contour shade. I seriously need to find a dupe for this as I hate to think of being without it. Suggestions on a postcard (or in the comments!) please!
GOSH Forever Eyeshadow Stick in 'Beige' | I love this either on its own all over my lids for a really pretty shimmery look without being too over-the-top (it's very work-safe!), or as a base for powder shadows; it makes other colours pop really well, and holds my shadow in place all day. It's super handy, too, in its scribble-on crayon format.
Makeup Revolution x British Beauty Blogger Fortune Favours The Brave Palette | I keep saying this is my favourite palette of 2016 so far and that's not changed yet! It's just such a beautiful, wearable selection of shades, with something for all occasions, and the quality is fab.
Mascara | Mascara is the product I'm least loyal to; I will literally just buy a new launch or whatever is on offer - I don't have a favourite that I'll purchase over and over. I'm quite lucky in that my lashes are naturally quite long, thick and curly, so really I just need my mascara to be nice and black, add a bit of definition, and not flake or smudge all over my face.
What would you choose if you could only keep ten make-up products? Would any of your choices be the same as mine? I'd love to know if you've done a similar post!
