unrealisticperfection said: What are the best drugstore eyeshadows? :) Im from Australia

Eyeshadow is one of my favourite makeup products, I love experimenting with different shades, textures, finishes and formulas so I’ve tried my fair share of eyeshadow singles, duos, quads and palettes by now and even though I love my high end palettes there are a few drugstore ones that are my favourites…

lexability said: I have dry lips, how can I wear lipstick without making them look drier?

Dry lips can be a struggle (I should know!) and adding a lipstick can make them look and feel even worse. Lipstick can completely change your look, boring outfit? Add a bright red lip, colourful clothes? Try a nude lip, but dry looking lips? Never a good look.

Hydrate the lips

If you’ve got severely dry lips you may need to do a little more than just applying a lip balm and calling it a day. Keep lips in tip top condition by using the tips in my how to guide: how to fix dry lips.

Eyeliner is an amazing way to accentuate your eyes, make your lashes look thicker and add a finishing touch to your eye makeup, but it can be a little tricky to master… Whilst the good old saying “practice makes perfect” definitely applies to eyeliner there are a few tips & tricks you can use to fool people into thinking you apply perfect eyeliner every time.

skinnygalore said: Can you explain to me the differences between powders: pressed, mineral, compact, loose etc. What's their use and with what type of brush you can apply each one with. I want to set my liquid foundation, but I don't know with what type of powder xo

Creams, liquids, gels, stains, minerals, powders, pencils, lacquers, glosses, with so many different formulations of products on the market it can be confusing as to which one you should be using…

her-hubris said: What are the best drugstore eye primers?

In the past drugstore brands have really lacked on the eye primer front, but now there are many options available and whilst many brands just can’t get their formula’s right, some hit the nail on the head…

ELF Essential Eyelid Primer

If you haven’t heard the raves over the Urban Decay Primer Potion (which some have dubbed the best product in the world) where have you been? This eyelid primer is super popular and in my honest opinion the ELF Essential Eyelid Primer works just as good (if not better) It keeps shadow on all day  makes eyeshadow apply smoother and appear more pigmented.

NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base

This is another lovely eye primer, I personally still prefer the ELF version, but this one is great at making your shadows appear more vibrant and works well with shadows that have a lot of fallout.

The Milani and Wet N Wild primers are also great quality for the price. Also, I wouldn’t recommend using concealer as an eye primer.

If you have super oily eyelids these won’t work miracles on you, but they will keep your shadow on just a little longer.

lorrainegagliardi said: do you know any good pencil liners?

I’m a huge lover of gel and liquid eyeliners mainly because of the fact they are precise and can be used to create perfect cat eyes, in saying that pencil eyeliners certainly do have their time and place.

Best eyeliner pencils

Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner

These pencils are so creamy dreamy. If you are after a super creamy, super pigmented and long lasting eyeliner pencil then these are  for you. They have the perfect gel pencil formula and the black shade is the richest jet black I’ve come across.

Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil

What can I say? An oldie, but a goodie. These pencils are gentle on the waterline and look beautiful when smudged over the eyelid for a quick, smoky effect. (I also love the Scandal Eyes Kohl Pencils which are a bit creamier)

seduce-mys0ul said: Do you recommend any drug store face primers?

Whilst I’m a lover of $40 lipsticks and other makeup products nothing pleases me more than an amazing budget friendly one that sets me back just a few bucks. I’m a budget girl at heart so I totally get not wanting to spend a fortune on products.

Face primers are best suited to specific purposes (I have a whole post dedicated to face primers) but my top two makeup primers for those on a budget are:

ELF Face Primer

ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer

This primer is one of my major drugstore (and ELF) favourites. The formula very similar to my holy grail Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free primer and has a lovely smooth texture. It is available in clear which is great for anyone and everyone but also comes in colour correcting and brightening shades.

Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer

This is another great primer (although sadly more expensive) it has a lovely velvety texture which makes the surface of the skin appear and feel even so that foundation glides ontop. Great for all skin types and also comes in a color correcting version.

bokunoarmin said: What are some good drugstore highlighters?

It’s no secret that I love drugstore products (I mean who doesn’t love getting an amazing product for an amazing price?) Whilst drugstore brands have hundreds of lipsticks, mascaras and foundations they often lack in the extra products, like highlighters. When it comes to the drugstore highlighters are rare, glittery and often look chalky on the skin. In saying this, I do have a few drugstore faves.

Whether it’s a creamy illuminator tapped onto my cheekbones, a dab of shimmery shadow in the inner corners of my eyes or a hint of light reflecting concealer on my cupids bow; on the days I don’t contour I still highlight. Highlighter just has this amazing way of instantly brightening your face and making you look like you’ve had eight hours sleep (even though you’ve really only had two)
