The other day I decided to search through my old makeup, I remember the days of my blue eyeshadow that was as sheer as air and a mascara I got in Shout magazine that did nothing at all for my eyelashes but I used to think I looked so good. I remember saving up my pocket money each week to be able to go to Superdrug and buy the 99p face masks which years later are honestly still great.
I found some of my old favourite products and it got me thinking about my makeup journey. I decided to share with you some of the staple products I constantly used and talk about how my makeup has evolved over the years. My first ever foundation was one that Avon did. I remember begging my grandma for it and I was over the moon when it came. It was one of the most patchiest foundations ever but to me it was like goldust.
I remember the main product I used to obsess over was the Rimmel nail polishes. I used to have almost every single shade and I couldn't resist getting more every time. I blogged about one of the Rita Ora ones, reading the post now makes me laugh so much. I idolised that £2.99 nail polish like it was Chanel. I decided to try one the other day and even after all these years they still work great. The quality of a £2.99 nail polish really is wonderful, the shade range is even bigger now then I remember. It has almost doubled in size since the last time I checked it out. Rimmel was the main brand I used to wear, I loved their 24 hour foundation and the match perfection foundation. For my prom in year 11 I raided the display and created such a decent look from the simplest of products. One Rimmel product I do repurchase a lot is the Stay Matte Powder. I don't use this often but I do like to use it to set my makeup, as it is a pressed powder you can't bake with it but it's good for the Summer days when I need to sort the oil situation out on my face.
Another brand I used to love was Collection, I still check out their stands and displays constantly. I am always...
