Meh, I don't loveeeee make up. I'm just considering buying non-white foundation and powder for the first time because I think perhaps it would be worth wearing when I'm performing.

I like collecting bright fancy eye shadows though. Lime Crime is very nice, and I've got my eye on Sugar Pill. Eyeshadow primer makes the colours go on strong and stay there. Urban Decay is the only one I've used, and it works a treat.

Oh, and gel eyeliner is a must have if you ever want dramatic lines. The MAC one is popular, but I got the cheaper Sleek option, which is everything I wanted. It doesn't smudge or crack or anything (though I'm not sure if I've put it to the sex test). You need a good eyeliner brush though. I use Ecotools angled eyeliner brush or Urban Decay wonder brush.

Lancome double wear... not heavy unless you would like it to be... I get compliments all the time from ladies... not so long ago I applied some on a neighbour who has skin irritation etc... was fine and she looked sooo much better than the powder she used.... I think it was Mac and something else... No.7 is lighter than Lancome... but I find Lancome better on me.

For years now I have been wearing Lancome foundation.  Yesterday I saw some Rimmel 25 hour foundation on offer in Boots and thought I'd give it a try. Amazing stuff and at ?4.99 it's about ?27 cheaper than the Lancome stuff!
I find Rimmel nail varnish by far the best too.  I get lipsticks from Mac but also use  Lip Finity (Max factor) as it doesn't come off on clients. Fave eyeshadow  Mac and  Bourjois and the last mascara I bought was YSL, which is supposed not to smudge but they lied! Prefer Number 7.
I don't wear much make up but am quite fussy and I don't find that paying loads guarantees better quality by any means.

Oh, Lipfinity (and similar things by other brands) are amazing if you want to wear glitter on your lips. Just dab it on while it's half dry and you have total sparkle all night. Finding fine red glitter is a bit of a challenge, though.

I don't recommend it with clients though. Sorry for just going on about silly special occasion make up, but it's the only sort that interest me.

For foundation I always wear Dior Forever. It's gorgeous! I've been wearing that for 2 years now. My eyeshadows are pretty much all MAC and Dior, lipsticks/glosses are MAC, Dior and L'ancome. Blush is MAC or Dior...

It's all pretty expensive BUT by far the best brands I've ever worn. High quality, staying power and amazing colours.....

I used to treat myself to a MAC makeover once a month at Debenhams. ?25 to get your makeup done (I always chose an exaggerated OTT look, lol) and at the end of it you get your ?25 back to spend on MAC products.  :P

Benefit. I love it. I adore all make up but Benefit is my favourite, especially their powders, enhancers and cheats. I love the packaging and the names, but the best thing is the products actually work. For colour I love Mac and Nars, and as a budget option I rate No. 7 highly. The Strictly range is surprising good for very strong colours too.
A good set for brushes is as important, if not more so, than the products. For me it's Mac all the way.

My favourite eye liner crayon is Benefit BadGal liner Waterproof as it's got the smudge sponge at the other end. It goes on really easily and doesn't budge. It's also available in 2 new colours. I should so work for Benefit LOL.

Guerlain and Nars are my all time favourites.. Guerlain especially is quite expensive but in my opinion its worth it! My mascara is always Diorshow Blackout and I have some very pretty eyeshadow palettes by Dior  but I dont find them very good value.
I have an obsession with lip glosses and my current favourite is a very shiny one by YSL. I think the shade is called Golden Satin. It stays on forever! Every time I go to Boots I have to buy a cheap lipgloss by No7 or Rimmel, the shades look always so beautiful and glittery (I do like my glitter..) but I hate that they are so sticky! Very nice on a windy day with my long hair.  ::)

For eyeshadow I don't think you can beat Benefit and Mac, great colours, blends well and stays on forever.

Rimmel liquid eyeliner is am zing, if you put it on in April you could probably still be wearing it in June if you didn't take it off :D Rimmel also do a great range of lipstick colours. For pencil liner again you can't beat Benefit (IMO)  but I also find Collection 2000 liners really good.

Boots no 7 is a good option if your on a bit of a budget as well, I really like the face powder (but love clinique if I'm feeling flush)

For mascara I don't think you can beat L'oreal (all of their mascaras are good). I find a lot of mascaras by other brands don't give enough length, even the more expensive ones.

I always use Clinique/ Estee Lauder  foundation as you tend to only need a bit and it lasts forever.

With regards nail varnish I've never had any that didn't chip within a day or 2 (I must have rubbish nails? ???) so I don't bother with expensive brands, Boots 17 do some really fab nail varnish colours.

Oh make up, how I love thee, I swear my heartrate gains an extra 20 beats per minute whenever I see the Benefit counter ;D

Oh and I can also really recommend the Mac makeovers Krystal mentioned. I've never had one but my friend did for her birthday recently and she looked amazing afterwards, I'm definately going to give it a go next time I have a special occasion coming up!

Another vote for Benefit - I don't really wear makeup for working in, but I love BadGal mascara, Posietint and the mattifying stuff (Dr Feelgood, I think) as well as the tinted lip balm. For coloured stuff I like MAC too, but my all-time favourite for eyeshadows and so on is Shu Uemura as the stuff lasts forever, and the skincare oils are fab too.

Budgetwise, I've used Rimmel's 'Hide the Blemish' cover sticks for upwards of twenty five years (the first one I ever remember buying was 69p and the last one was ?4.99) and the only foundation I own (in case of dog days) is the Barbara Daly one from Tesco in Porcelain - it's brilliant and the only one I've ever found that was pale enough without having a funny-coloured tint to it. And the Accessorize nail polishes (you can get them in Superdrug) are dirt cheap and last ages, although I only use colour on my toenails.
