Unsung Beauty Heroes

beauty heros

My unsung beauty heroes are not the most exciting group of beauty products youve ever heard of, definitly more the Spandau Ballet's to the Take That's of the beauty world, but they are 'knock your socks off and call me sweetpea' good. 
Let me introduce my Beauty Heros *clap, clap, clap, clap*
(probably for the best I dont type with two coffees in my system again...).

ben nye makeup remover

Or as I refer to it as 'The Best Eye Makeup Remover In The World'. This stuff kills makeup. Waterproof mascara HA! No match for Remove it-all. This was actually made for the purpose of removing makeup adhesive (spirit gum,PVA) so its intended use is not as a everyday makeup remover. But, if I have some stubborn mascara that just won't budge, or lash glue thats latched itself onto my eyelashes, then a quick swipe of this removes it all instantly. 

ben nye conceal all wheel

Don't be fooled by the simple packaging of this product, what lies inside is what counts. 
This ultra-high-coverage concealer has been know to cover tattoos for me on shoots, it's super pigmented and creamy, so it glides on like a dream. This does dry matte, so if you have fine lines under your eyes, it's best to pat it on rather than swipe, and bare in  mind a little goes a long way.
This is definitly one of the most underrated products I've ever owned.

laura mercier secret brightening powder

I have no idea why people still waste so much time/money/effort on baking their under eyes when this little hero has been on the market for years! Applying just a small dusting of this powder, on top of your concealer underneath the eyes, immediately brightens and sets the concealer. Laura made this product especially for this purpose, so it doesn't settle into fine lines around your eyes. Woo Hoo. 
If your a baker, I strongly suggest you give this a whirl. 

laura mercier tweezerman

Tweezerman for me are the best tweezers there are. And these ones with the nice finger placements, have to be the best ones I have found yet. Just genius, yet so simple. 
Who knew one could get so excited about tweezers...

This stuff is amazing. Once applied to your nails it dries in seconds and gives the glossy, 'I just stepped out the nail salon after paying £££££' look to them! 
Quite simply A must have for any nail painter enthusiast. 

Let me know who your beauty heros are!

  1. These all sound fantastic! I really need that eye makeup remover - why does it seem so easy to apply mascara yet so hard to take off? ;)
