Must-Haves For The Shopaholic – Online Boutique
These are a few of my favourite things…
Beauty and lifestyle products
I’ve compiled a list of my favourites below and call it my online boutique because you can click through and purchase these great beauty products. I wanted to be able to offer you a page of curated (specially selected) products, cosmetics, skincare, homewares and more.
With regards to beauty products, I’m always asked where I buy my products, what my favourite products are, what types of products I would recommend, and in most cases, due to my busy schedule, I do my shopping in online boutiques.
Products for a #Ladyboss
There is also a list of business products to help you in your business, to allow you the freedom that being your own boss entails.
So first things first, let’s start with my picks for primers, brushes and fragrances.
Primers aid with the staying power, glow and/or reduce oiliness. I always print my areas with not so perfect skin as at helps smooth the surface for foundation.
The Real Techniques are amazing brushes, as are the Sigma. Quality over quantity in this case. Poorly constructed brushes will shed, provide uneven application and in the end create a less that perfect look.
You don’t have to buy brushes made from animals such as mink, sable, pony or goat to get a lovely brush. I only use synthetics brushes now. I won’t support the fur trade for fashion or beauty. There are so many great alternative animal-friendly and /or vegan options.
I am a total fragrance addict and don’t dare think of how much I’ve spent over the years. I adore the packaging, fragrance and the marketing. The above are just a few of the beautiful fragrances to arm yourself in a cloud of heavenly scent.
It’s hard to find the perfect foundation. These are my top picks across budgets and different coverage levels. Buying online can be difficult but there are ways around it. Try the matching tool on Temptalia. Read here for additional stories on foundation.
12. Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Foundation $35USD
13. BECCA Ever Matte Skin Shine Proof Foundation $59.50AUD
15. e.l.f. cosmetics Foundation Serum $8 USD is a great choice. Piggy bank friendly and quality product.
16. e.l.f. cosmetics High Definition Powder $6 USD (yes that’s the price) is a great product with a hint of sparkle.
17. Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder $64 AUD offers triple milled luxury with high pigments.
18. Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation $60 AUD is both luxurious, triple mills but in a beautiful gold pot with matching kabuki style brush.
Loose Powder Tip: I never leave the house without a Loose Powder to set my base. I don’t like to look “cakey” so I use a big fluffy powder brush and tap off the excess on the side of the lid or pot. I do take a pressed powder and blotter to work, but prefer to use loose powder when it is convenient.
I’ll be adding more to this page so keep coming back!
Keep being beautiful!
