Make up Brands you need to try

Most of us stick to brands we know or have tried before when it comes to make up. Only really venturing into new brands once we have heard a lot about a brand or a product has a lot of hype around it. Being a beauty blogger I have been lucky enough to try products from a variety of brands, many of which I hadn’t heard of or had never really investigated. Today I thought I would share with you some lesser known brands that have amazing products.

This was a brand I hadn’t heard or tried before until recently when I saw a display at Illuminate Skin Clinic. I had a good play with the products and was really impressed. All the products have amazing coverage and the range of shades are brilliant. Even my mum was blown away and has her eye on a few of their products! If your looking for a new base product. This is a brand you need to check out.

I got two of their shimmer powders in a beauty box ages ago and they are brilliant! Not only are they super pigmented, they are really reasonably priced. They can be used in a multitude of ways from eyeshadow to highlight even lip colour. All the products they offer have amazing reviews, definitely worth a peep!
