My top 5 products of the last 12 month's...

Well this was harder than I thought it was going to be. Trying to narrow down my kit to just 5 products from literally thousands of items, but this is what I've come up with.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Liquid is just gorgeous. It's become a real game changer in my kit. Wearable on its own or mixed with a foundation it gives that desirable bronzed glow with very little effort. One small pump mixed in with your foundation for a really subtle effect. The bottle is a decent size too and will last you ages.

Lumene Invisible Illumination Instant Glow Beauty Serum... now it might be a bit of a mouthful but it's totally worth it. This very light liquid applies to your skin with or without primer for an instant lift. It smells devine and is so easy to apply (even with your fingers- yes I did actually say that). I love it on freckled skin, sometimes mixed with the Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing liquid. Last summer I wore this almost every day, it's so light it barely feels like you're wearing anything but the look is really impressive.

Arbonne Intelligence CC cream. This colour correcting formula is so impressive in the way it covers and lifts the skin. Lighter than a foundation but heavier than a BB Cream, it's great for those looking for dual use day to night product. Fantastic on older skin too and super easy to blend

Morphe and Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette. It's shades cover such a range of colours and the mix of shimmers and mattes have been so well thought out. The pigments are stunning and really easy to blend too. This comes out at every bridal trial now.

The last product wasn't so easy to narrow down. I was between the following... Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder, Revolution Makeup Conceal and Define Concealer, WUNDER2 - High Tech Beauty eye shadow primer, the Urban Decay Cosmetics All nighter setting spray or Arbonne Primer.

I decided on the Urban Decay All nighter setting spray. I have a few setting sprays in my kit but having tried and tested them all myself I always end up coming back to All nighter. It really has got your back... a little tip. If you want to buy one for the odd occasion but don't want to buy a full size version, then head over to eBay for their samples!

It's pretty hard to narrow this down as there are so many brushes in my kit I adore and can't live without (slight over reaction). Blending brushes for the perfect eye look, angled brushes for beautiful brows or concealer brushes for crease free under eyes.

My absolute favourite brush is the Real Techniques expert face brush. It makes the application of foundation or CC cream a piece of cake. Doing exactly what it says on the tin, as it buffs the make up onto your skin for a really flawless finish. The tightly packed bristles work best when used in small circles over the skin to buff the product on.

Pop a pea sized amount of product onto the back of your hand. Dip the bristles into the product and then swirl it around on your hand to distribute the product across the bristles. This way you won't end up with uneven make up distribution on your face. Start by applying the product to the middle of the face and blend outwards into the neck and hair line. Reload the product and continue to apply and buff until you're happy with the level of coverage.

Real techniques brushes cab be bought in Superdrug and Boots so very readily available and they're cruelty free!

Mascara is quite often said to be a desert island product. With many clients professing to 'not leave the house without a bit of mascara'. I personally always feel a look isn't complete without mascara and especially when working with fair lashes it can even make a look appear strange or odd until the mascara is applied. If you have fair lashes yourself, always bare this is mind. Go with the eye shadow you had planned and trust your instincts with your eye shadow application until you have finished off with mascara.

Black mascara is the most effective in terms of achieving the most stand out look but if you want something more subtle then browns are readily available too.

When looking for a new mascara consider what you want from it. Volume - I.e you want you lashes to look fuller and thicker or length - I.e you want them to look longer and more defined but not necessarily thicker. Some will profess to do both. People can be quite particular so read reviews and the blurb about the product to be sure it matches what you're looking for.

Waterproof mascara does exactly what it says on the tin. It can't be removed with water and if you cry / get caught in a rain shower it won't be streaming down your face. They're great for weddings etc but not the best for your lashes as you need something stronger to remove it. So don't wear waterproof daily. Some mascaras will say they're water resistant, this is not the same thing as waterproof. They might not smudge immediately with water contact but can be removed with water and will dissolve with excess moisture.

My 3 favourite mascaras are...

Doucce Mascara

Arbonne it's a long story mascara

Maybelline Collosal Volume mascara
