My Six Favourite Makeup Brands


Hi guys!

I remember doing this post when I first started my blog on weebly. That was two years ago. My tastes in makeup have changed a lot in that time, and I think that it is time to figure out what my new favourite brands are.

I’m going to take everything into account for this; foundation, skincare, eyeshadow, lip stuff, ect…. There’s a lot to take into account! So here we go; here are my top five favourite makeup brands.

Bare Minerals

I had just discovered Bare Minerals when I started my blog last time, and it was a favourite back then. Although I have discovered other things that are slightly better, I still love this brand’s motto and products. They give a really pretty, natural look. And the Marvelous Moxie collection will always be some of my favourite lip products.

Body Shop

I don’t use a lot of the makeup from the body shop, other than the Colour Crush eyeshadows. The Body Shop belongs up here solely for it’s skincare products. These saved my dry skin a few years ago and I have used them since. They are amazing, and there is a range for every type of skin condition.


I did go off this brand for a long type after the ‘Super Balance’ incident. However I have recently got back into it. I love the eyeshadows and lip products. I am also loving the Chubby Lash mascara at the moment for days where I go for a more natural eye look. Once my other foundations run out, i may give their foundations a go again.


MAC have some amazing products in their constant line. They have a habit of being long lasting and highly pigmented. I especially love their lipsticks. There is something their for every occasion. I know that MAC does have a reputation for having ‘bitchy’ people working for them, but I have had no problems at my local MAC store. The girls are lovely and give advise to people. It’s a really friendly counter.


Nars is another brand I have only really started using in the past six months. I have two lipsticks, a foundation, a blush and a lip gloss. I can’t really complain about any aspect of these products quality. They are amazing; highly pigmented, creamy and super long lasting. I only wish that they were slightly cheaper, but they do last me a long time. Yes, I disagree with expiry dates on most items!

Urban Decay

I now know that Urban Decay is more than just beautiful eyeshadow palettes. They have an amazing range of lip products, foundations, concealers, and yes eyeshadows. They are amazing and I have really gotten into them at the moment.

Those are my six favourite makeup brands. there are others that I do really love, and if this had been a top ten list, they would have made it in here.

What would you have as your six favourite makeup brands? Let me know in the comments.

Bye for now!

      I haven’t tried a lot of those brands. I really want to try anastasia makeup and kat von d. I just think some of her stuff would be awesome in a makeup artist kit.


  2. What a good idea! Like Sarah, there are far too many to choose from! To have a foot in both camps (high end and drug store) I’d have to go for Make Up Forever, Benefit, MAC, L’Oreal and Max Factor (although I have to admit a guilty addiction to super value for money brands Collection and MUA!)
