My Favourite Makeup and Hair Products

Hey friends! It’s time to link up with Adrienne, Dara, Jen, Joanne, and Sarah to chat about our favourite makeup and hair products.

My Favourite Makeup And Hair Products

Makeup Products

While I usually stick to the basics and don’t have a huge makeup collection, shopping with my makeup guru bestie always inspires me to try different beauty products. So over the past couple of years, I’ve slowly ventured beyond just tinted moisturiser and lipstick and started using products like contour and highlighter.

Concealer has also become my new best friend.


This is my favourite tinted moisturiser which I have found out has recently been discontinued. It’s not easy getting a good colour match and I was happy with this shade.

A touch of cream blush for that dewy look.


This is my favourite eyeshadow palette but I tend to only wear it for special occasions and don’t use it every day.

I’m also a big fan of this liquid eyeliner and hope to build up the courage to try a bold Sophia Loren-inspired look someday.

Underneath my makeup, I use this sunscreen.

At the end of the day, I wash my face with Neutrogena face cleanser.

Then wipe off any residual make-up with micellar water. It’s great stuff!

Here is my favourite local place to buy make-up products. I haven’t visited in a while because I prefer to use up what I have first. Having said that, my concealer is running a bit low so I will probably visit Mecca during the autumn break (4 days to go!)

Hair Products

Onto hair products, where I’ve perhaps invested a small fortune in taming my frizzy hair. It’s been quite the battle! I’ve experimented with all sorts of conditioners, shampoos, serums, and hair masks – you name it, I’ve tried it! While these hair products were good, my hair was just too crazy. Here are just a few.

In the past, I didn’t need to check the weather forecast because my hair would tell me if it was going to rain or not. Any chance of rain and my hair would puff up like a big puffy frightened cat (not pretty).

But all that changed recently when I got keratin treatment and it’s the best thing ever. The other day I walked home in the torrential rain, TORRENTIAL!! I’m talking buckets! And guess what? My hair stayed tame. Sure it got slightly wavy but it wasn’t the usual scary, frizzy mess. I was so happy that I didn’t mind being drenched or that my shoes were absolutely soaked from wading through ankle-deep puddles. I looked like a real mess but I was a mess with good hair – priceless!

My hairdresser suggested I use shampoo free from sulphates to make sure it doesn’t ruin the keratin treatment. So I’m currently using these hair care products.

I also colour my hair with Garnier Olia light brown hair colour.

And that’s about all of my favourite makeup and hair products. Thanks so much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

  1. I love your hair happiness!!! And I’m realizing through reading this link up that all my makeup knowledge comes from Rachel and dance. She LOVES micellar water for cleaning her face after dance shows.

  2. I really have to learn how to contour, my youngest has tried to teach me but I just can’t get the hang of it.
    I love that eyeshadow palette, such pretty colours. I have that micellar water, it is fab stuff! x

  3. I assume Mecca is like our Sephora. There is one by my office and I love going in there! I don’t buy too much either but I like seeing what they have. I have a friend that tells me what to buy too!

  4. I love cream blush. I’ve been using it for a couple of years now. My daughter loves the Micellar water. You shared so many great products!

  5. I have the micellar cleanser too, even when I don’t wear make up. I like to keep well moisturised and when I go out I wear minimal make up. I’ve decided to stop dying my hair…eek!
