Hello everyone 💕 Today I would like to show you some of my favourite makeup products for when I really want to look better than usual. I don't always wear full face of makeup but when I do I like to go super glam. Sometimes I go for more natural make up but it's not a point of this article (but I will write one!).

Let's begin!

1. Primer - Smashbox Photo Finish (Radiance)

I don't really use primer but when my skin feels dehydrated I like to put something under my foundation to make it look more dewy. This primer feels great on the skin and gives the most beautiful glow

2. Foundation - Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able

I live for full coverage and this foundation gives me all of that. Sometimes I like to mix it with primer so it's a little bit more natural.

3. Concealer

I used to use Nars complete concealer, but they are not cruelty-free anymore. When I use Marc Jacobs foundation, I don't wear concealer anyways, so let's skip this step

4. Powder - Inglot Loose Powder

Inglot is not really a high end brand but you can find it at Sephora in my country so I decided to put it here. To be honest I haven't found better loose powder than this one.

5. Bronzer/contour/highlighter - Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow

I love everything about this product. I dont't wear blush, like ever, but this one looks gorgeous as an eyeshadow. Almost everytime I wear bronzer it's this one - I also use that for contour. Highlighter? OMG, just look at it and feel it yourself. I definetly recommend this glow kit (not sponsored lol)

6. Eyeshadow - Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze

If you love warm tones, you're gonna love this palette. I use lots of different palettes but this one is perfect for everything: natural, soft glam or full glam look. I also own a Golden Hour one, but Ablaze is my fav.

7. Mascara - Too Faced Better Than Sex

Some people hate it and some people love it. I definetly belong to the second group. It smuges in my inner corner area (idk why tho, it just does but nothing major), but whatevs. It makes my lashes look fake and gorgeous.

8. Eyebrows

I just use micropencil and tinted mascara, both from NYX, it's not high end, but my eyebrows naturally have a nice shape, are thick, long and dark, so I don't really care about them that much. I own a high end brow gel and pencil but these are not cruelty-free so I am not going to mention the brand (I got it from someone, I didn't bought it myself)

9. Lipstick - Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick or Studded Kiss

You can't go wrong with these lipsticks. They stay put forever and I love all of the colours basically.

10. Setting spray

To lock my makeup in place I always use rose water. It smells good and adds moisture to the skin.

That's all for my cruelty-free, high end makeup products. It's my first article so sorry if it's not perfect, but I promise to improve my skills. I'll write more articles so if you liked this one follow me for more.

Have a nice day,
