From blush palettes to concealers, we discuss our top three holy grail products that every make-up lover needs in their collection.

1. Concealer

Concealer is a product we simply cannot live without. It is the ideal product for blurring imperfections like spots, dark circles, hyperpigmentation or redness. Concealer can help to refresh tired-looking eyes and you don’t always need a foundation to go with it if you prefer that ‘no make-up’ look.

Concealer comes in a lot of different shade ranges and sometimes it can be difficult to know if you are picking the right one or not. There is nothing worse than getting home only to realise that you have the completely wrong shade and you’ve wasted your money. Luckily, there is plenty of advice online which can help you pick the right concealer shade. It is well worth doing your research before you make a purchase to avoid disappointment.

2. Blush

The great thing about blush is its versatility. It is a multipurpose product and can be used on both cheeks and eyes. It is the perfect make-up staple for when you are on the go as you can top up your makeup to give you a fresh-faced and vibrant look. As well as adding a hint of colour to the cheeks, you can also use it on your ey lids as shadow.

There is an array of blush palettes out there and they come in various different colours, so you are sure to find a palette that suits your style whilst complimenting your skin tone. Take a look at this blush palette from Code8. A palette is ideal for popping into your bag when you are on the go so you can look fresh and vibrant 24/7.

3. Mascara

You won’t have to travel far online to find beauty blogs about the many benefits of wearing mascara. As well as adding thickness, length and colour to your lashes, it also helps to draw attention to your eyes. Mascara can make you look bright eyed and awake and it is certainly a product that we can’t live without.

Finding the right mascara is something that can take a lot of time and patience. Just because your friend loves a certain product, that doesn’t mean that you will love it too. In fact, it can help to read product reviews to help you find the right one for you. It can also help to learn about the mascara mistakes we should avoid. Some of us struggle with mascara as it doesn’t give us the length that we want whilst others need a mascara that holds their lashes up for a long time.

When it comes to buying and finding the right product, we always recommend doing as much research as you possibly can.
