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

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

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.

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach Review

Product Description: “A wakeup call for tired eyes—this essential corrector brightens and covers discolouration under the eyes utilising a pink- or peach-based formula to neutralise undereye darkness” dash Bobbi Brown, contains 1.4g and available in 21 shades.

Price: £19.50

Product Review: The corrector that corrects in one swipe. I started using this a few years ago and I cannot remember why I stopped. The colour range alone is impressive. The product is thick in consistency and covers dark eye circles perfectly.

But one thing that I do have an issue with is that if you have problematic skin underneath your eye this probably isn’t for you as it can hog on to dry skin. I must say though I love how compact it is and how it comes with a tiny mirror.

The product lasts a while and only requires a little bit.

Combined with a liquid conealer this can create a flawless finish.

My Shade: Peach

Would I recommend? Yes, if you have ‘normal’ skin underneath your eyes.

NYX Stay Matte but not Flat liquid foundation (oil free) Review


Product Description:

The NYX stay matte but not flat liquid foundation is oil free, water based, full coverage, mineral dash enriched and has a matte finish. It is available in 30 shades and contains 35ML.

Price: £7

Product Review: I have been using the NYX foundation for a few good years or several months (that’s how long; I have forgotten) and it is an absolute dream. Before this I used Nars weightless fondation and it made me break out unfortunately. I have acne prone skin, and have dealt with breakouts for many years so finding this jewel was truly a dream.

The product lasts a while, and I use it on a daily basis. The beauty of it is a little bit goes a long way, and if you want to build coverage it is easily doable with a beauty blender. The best way to apply it is using a beauty blender if you want a natural finish with some coverage but if you want a more of a heavier finish a flat brush works amazingly and equally looks great.

NYX is very much on the affordable side which I appreciate, as much as I love to dabble in Bobbi Brown, if NYX can impress me I am happy to carry on using NYX. The colour range alone is impressive, I struggle to find my own tone across both high street and high end beauty products so if you’re in a similar boat to me, with a yellow tone base, this range will hopefully be the one for you.

My Shade: Warm Beige

Would I recommend? YES!
