Some of my favourite blog post ideas usually come from other people. And the inspiration for this post comes from the incredible JenLuvsReviews over on YouTube. She did a video last week talking about the makeup she would repurchase if she were to lose her whole collection. And I thought this was a fun experiment. I’ve done similar posts in the past. But this would be completely starting from scratch, armed with the knowledge I have now. So, if you want to see what I would pick up immediately if I were to start over, just keep reading!
Starting with base products, I would actually skip over primer to start. I would pick up one down the line because there are primers that I like. But none that I love enough to purchase it immediately. Which brings me to foundation. And this was one of the harder decisions to make. Because my tastes are always changing. But when I really thought about it, knowing what I know now, it has to be the ROSE INC SKIN ENHANCE LUMINOUS SKIN TINT – $81.00. Lighter coverage products have been my jam lately and this one is easily my favourite.
For concealer, I went with an all timer, the MAYBELLINE AGE REWIND DARK CIRCLE ERASER – $20.99. This has been my favourite concealer forever and I always have it in my collection. Staying with Maybelline, the MAYBELLINE FIT ME LOOSE FINISHING POWDER – $21.99 is perfect for both my under eyes and all over my face. And the CHARLOTTE TILBURY AIRBRUSH SETTING FLAWLESS SPRAY – $49.00 is a god tier setting spray. Literal perfection.
Eyes next. Firstly, I’ll weep over losing all 8 of my Pat McGrath palettes. And then I’ll pick up the MAKEUP BY MARIO MASTER MATTES PALETTE – $83.00. A surprising choice. But as someone who has been loving an all matte eyeshadow look, this has been my go to neutral palette for a while now. It has literally every neutral shade I could ever want. As for mascara, that decision was actually easy, the MECCA MAX WHIP LASH TUBING MASCARA – $25.00. This is another all timer for me. And it’s another one that I will always have on hand.
Getting onto cheeks. And it will shock you to learn that I went with cream products for both bronzer and blush (I wouldn’t buy a highlighter straight away). For the bronzer, the WESTMAN ATELIER FACE TRACE CONTOUR STICK in BISCUIT – $80.00 would land in my cart first. I cannot think of a contour or bronzer that I legitimately love more than this one. As for blush, the MECCA MAX OFF DUTY BLUSH STICK in PINCH – $19.00 would be my first pick. If you’ve seen me wear a pink blush lately, usually it’s this one.
Finally, we have lips. And this was dead easy. If I could only wear one lip combo for the rest of my life, it would be the HUDA BEAUTY LIP CONTOUR 2.0 in HONEY BEIGE – $30.00, topped with the TOWER 28 SHINEON LIP JELLY in CHILL – $26.03. I mean? My favourite liner with my favourite gloss formula? It’s a no brainer!
And that is a wrap on some of my all time favourite products. Let me know in the comments what some of your absolute favourites are!
