make up must haves

Hi, my name is Kimberley, and I am a beauty junkie. Today, I’m sharing 3 major make-up must-haves.

If you guys follow me on Instagram then you already know the hype with these products. I use them in almost ALL my make-up tutorials and videos and I really and truly believe they are worth the hype and price.

As you guys may or may not know, I get sent a lot of make-up and skincare products daily. (I never ever take that for granted) I feel very lucky that I get these products in and get to share them with you guys. You should know that I do not take that lightly, and I only ever share products that I truly believe are good.

These 3 products I’m sharing today are pricy – but SO WORTH IT.


Hourglass Veil Powder Brush:

If you’re looking for that ONE brush that solves all your problems, this is it! I’ve never ever been a brush snob, until this past last. I was sent this brush from Hourglass, and MY GOD what a game changer.

The thing is, you don’t realize just how nicely your make-up lies on your skin until you’ve got a brush that does that. I’ve always just been using drugstore brushes. But once you switch to something good….well then you know.

This brush is an investment. LOL.

And so many of you have DM’ed me about it, asking the same thing – “is this brush really worth the money?” My answer has consistently been the same. YES! Totally worth it, and you’re technically getting two brushes in one. It’s fluffy, soft but not too soft, washes well, and applies power, bronzers, blushes, and highlighters really, REALLY WELL.   A make-up must-have!

The bigger side: I use for powder and bronzer.

The smaller side: Blush and highlighter.

I’ll say this – This brush was gifted to me. But if something were to happen to it, I would 100% go out and buy another.

What Sephora says about the brush:

The brush features PETA-approved, high-grade, ultra-soft taklon bristles—an excellent alternative for those who suffer from allergies to animal hair.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Matte Bronzer:

Moving onto bronzers. As I mentioned above, I’m blessed beyond words to get sent such products. I’m grateful everyday. Which brings me to say I’ve tried about 987458346234 bronzers, and this one is definitely a make-up must-have!

It’s a HUGE over-sized matte bronzer which will last you a while! It’s also refillable once you’re done, so you don’t need to buy a new one. I’m in the colour Tan, and I just feel like this perfect! It doesn’t give you that orangey hue, which a lot of bronzer do with my skin tone. It’s a beautiful, sun-kissed glow.

3 ingredients you should know that are in this product:

-Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates and helps skin appear softer and smoother.
-Micro-Fine Perfecting Powders: Deliver an invisibly thin, silky filter on the skin to add an increased depth of color and coverage.
-Microspheres: Provide long-wear pay off and a silky texture.

It’s also free of sulfates SLS and SLES and gluten-free.

What Sephora says:

Charlotte created this bronzer to blend with the skin and warm the look of the complexion while blurring the appearance of any imperfections. It’s perfect for an all-over face and body bronze or to define and contour.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette:

Last but not least is this Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk eye shadow palette! Another make-up must-have. I have a lot of different eye shadow palettes, and although I love them ALL, I find that I’m always reaching for this one. It’s a beautiful everyday palette that can be worn in the most casual way or glammed up with sparkle. That’s the best part about having this palette. I use the muted shades for that every day subtle look, and if I’m having a date night and want a little glam, I can smoke it out with the darker colour, and add some shimmer.

It’s such a good palette. In fact, Charlotte Tilbury has a few palettes I love. These foursomes are perfect for traveling, or throwing in your handbag.

What Sephora says:

Each palette contains four harmonious eye colors: Prime, Enhance, Smoke, and Pop. Create a smooth base for your eye look using the Prime shade; build up definition with Enhance; add drama with the Smoke shade; and finish your dazzling look with the shimmer Pop shade. The collection ranges from bronze and golden to deep reds and purples, and can be built for a day, desk, dusk, or disco look. The step by step application is artistry made easy.

Trust me on this palette. In fact, trust me on either of these three products. They are tried and tested and definitely belong on the Monday Must-Haves list!

There are SO many other products that are definitely worth the money (and the hype) but these are currently my top 3 make-up must-haves.

What are some of yours?! Share in the comments.
