    Bare Escentials foundation in fairly light-mineral foundation is the best foundation I've ever used. Primer and eye primer by bare escentials too.
    Blusher is Ruby and Millie face gloss or benefit dandelion depending on how I feel.
    Concealer is miss sporty- pale enough for me even if it isn't the best.

    I have a mix of eyeshadows, lipsticks and glosses. Models own eyeliner atm, which is pretty good.

    I don't wear make-up, but I do find using a face scrub, followed by Toner stuff, followed by Matt Moisturiser (stops skin looking shiny ) works ok
    Doesn't clog up your pores and is totally natural - maybe that's worth a go??

    Primer is the best thing ever - makes foundation look ten times better! Benefit's PoreFessional is amazing and well worth the money. It's beige coloured too (as opposed to white like most) but suits all skin tones - I use this on my nose and cheeks. Clarins Instant Smooth primer is good too, although I use this more on my forehead and chin. Both don't feel greasy
    I use Benefit's 'That Gal' occasionally too - a good investment, although I only use it on my cheeks - not best on the T-zone.
    Another staple that improves the look of foundation is Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - every girl should own this product! It 'sets' foundation so it won't move all day. I've got oily skin and this is amazing. Best way to use it is to put a thin layer on then put foundation on straight away but it sinks in (although if you use PoreFessional it won't sink in at all).
    Foundation wise I've just brought L'Oreal roll-on foundation - the first time I used it I hated it but once I experimented I found it gave flawless coverage, staying power is good too. I don't like the roller thing, so may see what else they've got in their range. I was using Matte Morphose (can't remember brand, sorry) - it's not fantastic, no staying power.
    I use Clinique's Almost Powder face powder to set my make-up again - I put it on with No7's kabuki brush
    I use 'Confessions of a Concealaholic' for concealer (Boi-ing and Erase Paste). I never put concealer on my spots though, I'd rather it hurry up and die rather than prolong it by slathering it in concealer - the above are usually enough anyway. Would recommend this kit! Great for if you're staying out etc.
    Blush wise I use SugarBomb by Benefit -EVERYONE SHOULD OWN THIS. It's flexible and gorgeous! Someone brought me Hoola by Benefit too, and I like that, I only use a tiny bit though! I've got a Smashbox bronzer too - that's nice
    Maybelline's new EyeStudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H is very, very good - I'd invest in that! L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes - yes yes yes yes yes.
    MUA's £1 eyeshadow's are brilliant - you can pick those up from Superdrug. Benefit's Dandy Brandy eyeshadow is a good natural daytime look.
    It's worth investing in some good primer, foundation etc as you don't want to be reapplying constantly etc. I do a lot of researching before purchasing the more expensive brands so I don't waste money - I'd hate to spend £20/£30 on something and never use it. Also, I only buy things I know I need.
    If you want a more thorough review on any product, just ask The bold products are ones I'd recommend over and above the rest.

    On a daily basis I wear:

    Maybelline Mineral Concealor
    ELF mineral powder foundation
    Diorshow Mascara
    Carmex Lipbalm

    If I am going for a night out, I go the whole hog and do a full face of makeup, favourite foundation is Bourjois Healthy Mix cos it has healthy ingredients and smells delish, and I use the Sleek Storm pallette to do a neutral smokey eye.

    Body Shop is amazing for make-up- and it's ethical! I more or less get everything from there except i use Barry M liquid eyeliner, cheap, but easily the best i've used. I like their collection of lipstick too (budget makeup!)

    Max Factor lasting performance foundation (I swear by this - has amazing coverage and lasts for ages. I haven't bought another brand for years)
    GOSH mascara (got it in a gift set for Xmas and thought it'd be rubbish but it's amazing! Makes my eyelashes look so long )
    Max Factor or Bourjois blusher
    Max Factor lipstick/lipgloss/lip balm (depending on how i'm feeling!) or good old Carmex
    Dior primer

    ...that's about it. I'm a Max Factor kinda girl :awesome:
