2012 Make-up Favorites :)

This post is a little late in coming I'm sorry I have been in bed for 4 days with a Migraine mixed with another bad bout of Flu which I'm still fighting as we speak.
I had decided not to post this as I have seen so many other people do them but I changed my mind as a post about Make-up (as much as I love it) is not something I do very often if ever.
So I thought I should start and where better than with my favorites/used the most products of 2012. ( I was gonna take my own photos but due being ill website images will have to do otherwise it'll be renamed 2013 products!!)

Primer - Collection 2000 Primed and Ready £5.00
I really liked this it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy like some others and I really do think it helps my make-up stay in place longer, I feel like it gave me a very smooth surface for my foundation. Best primer I've tried for a while price tag is not too bad either.

This stuff is brilliant it covers all my spots an blemishes perfectly in fact I use a little of this all over my face before my foundation as I have very rosy cheeks it tones them down and it lasts all day the only down side is the under eye coverage could be better but I do have particularly bad dark circles so I struggle to find anything to work.( suggestions very welcome).

I have tried lots of Different foundations over the past year and I haven't liked any of them nearly as much as I like this one. Like the concealer this one lasts all day without having to apply more and I also only need to use the tiniest amount less than a full pump it blends really well and has a pretty medium coverage but is build-able so on days when my skin is awful I know I'm sorted I started using it in September /October time and have used it everyday ( pretty much ) and I'm still on my first bottle the price is really good too.

This year was the first year that I started to use Bronzer * pauses for shock* yes I know but in my younger year I have a bad experience a have not bothered since but after watching countless tutorials I felt educated enough to give it another go and I'm glad I did as I love the effect and the shape it gives to my face. I have tried many different bronzes and as I'm sure you'll guess this one was my fave no particular reason it just suits me well I also got it free as part of a magazine subscription I had to research the price ( not sure I would pay £19.50) may try a few others first.

I Love this I love the colour I love the feel of it it is wonderful, what isn't wonderful is the fact that they don't make this colour anymore the price is slightly off putting too but I use this almost every day and I bought it beginning of 2011 and its still going although I'm not far off hitting pan.

Brows - HD brows palette £18.95
I love this only because the one colour matches brilliantly and I got it in a Glossy Box so it cost a fraction of the price I won't however but it again as its a waste of money the other 3 colours I don't use at all. Before HD brows I just used a brown eyeshadow which is what I will be doing when this has run out. Great product just over priced in my opinion.
When it comes to my eyes I like to keep it natural and this palette along with the first one allows me to do that but with a little shimmer if I like. I have no bad words to say about it even the price is not too bad if you think about all the gorgeous colours you get. I actually only paid £ 20.00 for mine from ebay brand and unopened brilliant.

I love this it's smooth and doesn't pull on my eye it blends out pretty well too which I like as i dont alway want a harsh linenwhat more can you ask for.
I like this product a lot the kind of make-up look I go for is all about the eyes and I want to make them look as big as possible, and eye bright does that for me. I've tried white eyeliners before but they are a little harsh, Eye bright is a very pale pink giving a more subtle look.
I love this stuff and I have done a review as I thought it deserved a post all of its own you can find it here!

I only started to used this in December but I already think its pretty good. I have had a problem with my right eye for some time now which makes it water quite a lot and I was finding that normal mascara tend to come off on my under eye so I decided to try this and although its no water proof I have found a great improvement but not only that my bottom lashes look brilliant they look loads longer and fuller. It is defiantly worth a try if you have problems like me or even if you don't and just wanna make more of your bottom!

Highlighter - Estèe Lauder Special Edition Marbelized Shimmer powder Guilded Rose £22.00
I love this Highlighter but it's pointless me going on about it as they no longer make it anymore which is pretty gutting so I will be on a mission to find something equally as good.

Brushes - Real Techniques
I have changed all my brushes to real techniques I love them I love how my make-up look when I use them I don't have a bad word to say I only have 2 more to buy to complete my collection as my lovely Mum and Dad bought me some for for Christmas I can't rate them high enough.
You will probably have noticed I don't have a favorite Lip product that's because I don't like lips sticks or lip gloss in fact the only thing I do wear on my lips is Lip balm and I am constantly trying new ones so I found it too hard to choose one.

So that's it my 2012 Favorites, what were you make-up faves of last year?
Thanks for Stopping By xxx
