Today I wanted to share with you my staple 'every day' products, These products are the ones that I would definitely take to a desert island with me. If I was allowed to ofcourse!
Since I've been having my hair highlighted, I've used the Provoke touch of silver shampoo and conditioner almost every time I wash my hair. You're only supposed to use it once a week, but my hair is naturally so dark and brassy that it doesn't matter. I've tried loads of purple shampoos in the past, but none of them have even come close to this! I use this along with my leopard print tangle teezer, which is hands down the best hair brush in the world. Fact.
For skincare I used to rely on Bioderma (remember that anyone!?) but as we all know it wasn't the easiest to get hold of so I switched to this Garnier one and I've never looked back. Some people complain that it irritates their eyes but I don't have that issue, and at a fraction of the price of Bioderma it's a definite winner for me. I always follow this up with the Boots botanics balm cleanser. It's a balm with turns into an oil when you rub it into your skin, remove with a muslin cloth and it takes off all the make up and dirt that's built up on your skin. Lisa Eldridge uses it, and if it's good enough for her then it's good enough for me! The Ren clarifying toner is my favourite skin care product of all time. I wasn't sure if it would actually do anything, and I'm still not quite sure exactly what it does but all I know is that when I don't use it, but skin will object! It's almost 100% natural which seems to keep my skin calm and relatively decongested. I think this is my 7th or 8th bottle of the stuff and although it's not the cheapest it's well worth the money.
When it comes to make up I tend to chop and change on a pretty regular basis, but I always reach for the Rimmel fix and perfect face primer and the scandaleyes kohl eyeliner.Both are amazing products for such a low price point, and I'd use these over higher end products any day! Like most people I tend to wear a different lipstick every time I do my make up, depending on my mood but MAC faux is the one I reach for on a more regular basis. It's a pinky/brown nude and goes well with almost every outfit and make up look, I guess it's my fail-safe shade. Deep throat by Nars is my ultimate blush and as you can see from the picture, it's very well loved! I've had this for probably far too long but I won't get rid of it because it's such an easy colour to wear and just gives the perfect amount of colour.
Slightly more random and slightly less glamorous is the Revlon treat and boost nail protector which just goes on the nails to strengthen them and acts as a base coat. I need to get a new one though, cos this one is getting gloopy now. I also love these tweezers from Primark - they have a super thin pointed end and are amazing for tweezing hair and applying false eyelashes and I prefer them to any other tweezers I've previously tried.
