Best High Street Makeup Products for yellow skin tone

Once upon time makeup was alien to me until my not so evil real sisters showed me the wonderful world of cat eyes, bold lips and blush cheeks. Since then I have a very different relationship with my face but in a good way. I have always had an artist in me but I didn’t let it grow for many reasons and I guess putting makeup on my face allows me to be expressive. From the bad to the very very good I have used hundreds of makeup products, some of which have been excellent and others making me regret the purchases. In all I want to share with you my daily favourite makeup products, all from the high street!

NYX Stay Matte Foundation

An affordable foundation with a wide skin tone range and doesn’t make me break out? Yes please. I have used Estee Lauder (big fan) from nameless foundations and one thing I have learnt is that price does not always mean quality. This foundation is only £7 and lasts a long while, a little bit goes a long way.

Eylure Brow Gel

Shocked at myself for not listing my favourite NYX eyebrow Gel, still a brilliant product but lately I have been enjoying the Eylure brow gel paired with the Bobbi Brown Corrector, it is a dream come true. The best combination for natural shaped brows with a subtle ‘brushed’ brow look. It only takes a few minutes to create and a flat brush is the best applicator for this. Any flat brush does the trick too.

Kiko Bronzer

I am a brown girl, which means most high street bronzers look like my shade of foundation. Luckily I came across KIKO years ago and it is amazing, affordable and looks flawless. The only issue I have is the lack of shades, I think there is only four. And I used the darkest shade so many will not be able to wear this bronzer. Hoping the skin tone range expands soon as the formula is great and I think I have been through four or five.

NYX Eyebrow Gel (waterproof) Review

Product Description: The NYX Eyebrow gel is waterproof, long dash lasting and smudge proof in 5 shades and contains 10 ML.

Price: £6.50

Product Review: I have been using this NYX eyebrow gel for a while now and nothing else compares to it! It is the reason behind the many eyebrow compliments which I will happily take. It has taken me a long dash while to find an eyebrow product that works for my scarce thick black eyebrows.

The product is best applied with an angled brush and you don’t need to spend £20 on an angled eyebrow brush, Amazon is your best friend. I bought a pack of 20 makeup brushes under £2 and they were great, but none of which were face makeup brushes.

The NXY eyebrow gel is thick in consistency and needs to be applied softly to avoid creating the Nike eyebrow look. I should warn you as it is waterproof, which is news to me even though I have been using it for a long time, it is very difficult to take off. I am talking a few scrubs will be needed and also once applied it is difficult to correct but once you have formed a habit it is good to go. And I would highly recommend this if you love the high brow Instagram makeup look, very easy to create with this magical product.

My Shade: Black/Noir

Would I recommend? YES!
