My Weekend Makeup

Time for a weekend #FOTD post ~ all the makeup products I have been wearing over this weekend.

~ Flormar Illuminating Primer ... I love this primer! I have featured it in my latest monthly favourites post that you can read here. It provides the perfect powdery and matt base for applying my makeup. I apply the primer with the small Flawless Wonder Brush. This primer is available in Brennans Pharmacy, Carndonagh and is only €9.95.

~ Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation ... I bought this in LA after reading lots of blogger reviews about it and I featured it in my Sephora haul post that you can read here. This foundation is long-lasting and gives my skin a flawless but natural finish with a medium coverage. A little goes a long way! I apply this with the Powder 'n' Pout P230 HD Buffer Brush. This foundation is available in some Debenhams stores and online here.

~ Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer ... I also bought this in Sephora, I went for the trial size. This concealer is brilliant. It feels so lightweight on your skin, it does not feel cakey at all. It is a buildable concealer and blends so well. I use it to cover my dark circles and any blemishes or break outs I have, I apply it with the concelaer brush from the Cara Pharmacy brush set. Urban Decay is available in Debenhams stores and online here.

~ Benefit High Beam ... Highlighters are huge right now, 'It's all about that glow!" and I am slowly building my collection. I love this one from Benefits range. It is a satiny pink liquid highlighter that you apply to where the light would hit your face naturally. I always apply it to my cheekbones, brow bones, down my nose and cupids bow on my lip by doting it on and blend upwards and outwards. Another use of High Beam is to mix a little with your daytime moisturiser for a subtle glow! Benefit is also available in Debenhams stores and online here.

~ Essence Eyebrow Stylist Set Blonde ... I use this every single day and I would be lost without it. It stays on the brows all day. The pigmentation is so strong, with a lighter and darker shade in the set so you can get your perfect shade. Essence is an extremely affordable cosmetic range available in Brennans Pharmacy stores.

~ Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara ... This is in my top two favourite mascaras right now, the other being Essence Lash Princess. This Maybelline mascara is amazing. I am lucky to have long lashes but they are thin so this mascara is perfect for me. It has Maybelline's first 'lash reveal' brush which grabs even the tiniest of lashes and volumises. This mascara lengthens, volumises, seperates and defines my lashes. It is not clumpy at all, and I have experienced no flaking of this mascara throughout the day. Maybelline is available in Boots.

~ Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One ... I got this as a birthday present last month and I just love it! There are 11 velvety matte shades and one shimmer shade. Also included in the palette is a double-ended brush, one end being the Blank Canvas E40 for apply colour and lining, and the other end being the Blank Canvas E41 for blending. These shades are my ideal colours, I'm definitely a neutral/smokey eye girl. This palette is obviously the first palette in a series and I am excited to see what the future palettes will be like. Blank Canvas is available in Inish Pharmacy stores and online here.

~ Bare Minerals Mineral Veil ... Loose powders are my go-to for setting and finishing my makeup. I had read so much about the Bare Minerals one that I just had to give it a go. I will definitely be sticking with this powder in the future. It softens my complexion, absorbs oil and minimises pores (and any little fine lines I may have.) When I use this I feel like my makeup is 'locked' in place, and best of all, the Mineral Veil is completely weightless. Bare Minerals is available in Boots and Debenhams stores and online here.

~ Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy and Lipliner Spice ... A combination made famous by Kylie Jenner, I got these as a little present also and I am a bit obsessed! The colour combination with these two products is beautiful. Velvet Teddy is described by MAC as a deep toned beige colour with a matte finish. Don't be put off by the matte finish as I only found a little bit of drying but for the one coat of lipstick that lasts me all day, I'll put up with a little bit of drying. The Spice lipliner is perfect with Velvet Teddy. It is deep brown pink and is really easy to apply. MAC is available in Debenhams stores and online here.
