Guest Blog Post # 3: My 2013 Makeup Favourites! by Shawna's Beauty Blog

So another year down and another year older! Over the past year I have been trying out a lot of new products and I have made some firm makeup favourites. All the products mentioned are my most used products and they have made their way into my daily makeup routine. I can honestly say that I could not live without these products and I will definitely be repurchasing them if I have not done so already!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I’m sure you all have heard of Sam Chapman from Pixiwoo? The Real Techniques sponge is a great dupe of the Beauty Blender at a more reasonable price. It's sculpted for all facial contours and features. The sponge is a small and convenient size that fits into your hand perfectly. I love this product because it is so versatile and can be used for applying foundation, concealer, cream contouring and cream blush.  It gives a flawless finish and is super easy to use! This product is widely available worldwide for anyone interested. Feel free to read my full review on this product on my blog!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
This foundation is light weight and has a light to medium coverage. I particularly love the shade 010 Light Porcelain because it’s light enough for my pale Irish skin! It’s great for an everyday foundation.

Sleek Brow Kit
Defined brows have come into fashion with a bang and this brow kit it perfect for getting that look. It’s a great dupe for the Benefit Brow Zings and it is less than half the price!
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This bronzer is very famous as I’m sure you know! Its matte, has great pigmentation, cute packaging and is the perfect contour shade.

 Mac Studio Finish Concealer
Best.Concealer.Ever! I can honestly say that I haven’t found another product better! It covers all my blemishes, stays put all day and one little pot of concealer will last you forever!

Sleek Blush in Rose Gold
This blush is the perfect colour for my pale complexion and it has a gorgeous gold shine when it hits the light. This blush is a great dupe for NARS Organism. This blush is highly pigmented and has 5grams of product! I use this every day and I love it!

Maybelline Great Lash
This mascara is great for length and volume. It separates the lashes nicely and doesn’t clump. What more could you want?

Rimmel Moisture Renew in 470 Glam Plum Fulham
I can’t tell you how much I love this lipstick! I’ve worn this so much over the autumn/winter season and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it. For me, plum coloured lipsticks suit me more than red lipsticks. This product is so moisturising and the colour payoff is amazing. Great product.

Too Faced Natural Eye Collection
I love this little compact eyeshadow palette. I always bring this with me when I’m on the go and I can create any eye look with this. The qualities of the shadows are Amazing and are an absolute dream to blend! I got this bad boy when I was visiting the US last year. This was definitely a great buy if I say so myself!

Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner
This liquid liner is incredible cheap but is a great product. Why would you pay for a high end liquid liner when this one works better? This product is only about €3 and the colour payoff is incredible rich. I’ve gone through numerous tubes of this and it never fails me.

Elf Studio Pressed Powder
I always use this for touch ups on the go. It has a mirror and sponge so it’s perfect for travel. For all you with oily skin, it’s great for controlling shine around the T zone. This has always been a product I’ve repurchased over and over again.

So here you have my 2013 makeup favourites! Stay tuned to my blog ( for a tutorial using these products coming very soon. What have been your beauty favourites of 2013?
