I just get any mascara really, have found them all to be similar.

Bourjois Liner Effect mascara is the only one I've ever found to work serious magic on my lashes. I now buy at least two tubes whenever I see it in Boots, but I'm worried they're going to stop selling it soon cos there's no reason for it to be so fantastic! It took maybe a wear or two to figure out how to get it on right but now I never wear anything else.

Not sure if anyone's mentioned it yet, but I swear by Benetint. I don't like wearing lipstick with clients so this is a great way to colour my lips without getting it all over the client :) It works on your cheeks too and gives a really nice healthy looking glow.

For shadows I love Sleek (at superdrug).  Very pigmented, long wearing and super affordable.  The palettes are great as are the lose shadows - much better than the barry M stuff.  They also do a gel liner.   I took my collection of Sleek eyemake up to a shoot once and the MUA commented on how good they were

Foundation - mineral from this place on eBay, liquid I use Barbara Daly at Tesco as it's the only thing I find on the HS in the right colour; if I'm feeling flash then Clarins or Lancome

Mascara - maybelline, the big yellow one

GOSH at Superdrug for concealer and primer

ME ME ME at Superdrug for concealer (they have very pale one) and highlighter, and a cheap version of Benetint

OPI or Chanel for nails.

Which shade do you fellow ghosts use from Barbara daly? Ive never seen it in my tesco :( but you can buy it online.

The only foundation my shade I can find is loreal infallible, unfortunately it's too dark to cover blemishes on my body!

Eyeshadows I love gosh and those 99p ones from superdrug are great too.
Make up brushes, gosh are great.
With mascara I'm using a bloom waterproof one as a base (and let it dry before using a crazier one so my lashes dont clump) or just day to day then either a blue loreal one I can't remember the name of for work, which is waterproof and gives great length or loreal volume million lashes in extra black for crazy volume.

I use the Moisture Foundation in Porcelain - the same colours come in an oil free version too. I did hear rumours about it being discontinued, and last time I was getting some in Tesco there were only three bottles left and I bought them all just in case (I only really use a bit around my nose and on my chin if it looks uneven, so they ought to last awhile).

I'd forgotten about a Bourjois mascara I used to love - I can't remember the name but it had a white layer at one end which was like Tippex and you put that on first, then a black lashbuilding one on top. It made me look like a drag queen but it was fab (I think it was called Theatre something :D).

Coup de Theatre :) I used to use that too but found it didn't last too long! Now I use Benefits Bad Gal which gives awesome thick lashes :D

Me too - the big eye pencil looks good as well but I don't wear it. My lipbalm is the Benetint one but I was never fast enough with the liquid stuff - Posietint gives you a bit more room to manoeuvre and is that bit paler so it suits me better. I have some of that Lipcote stuff knocking about somewhere which you varnish your lippie one on with but it just made my lips sore so I don't use it. Pity as it's supposed to really work - I think the Benefit one's called She Laq.

If you have trouble getting a colour match you might want to look into the many indie mineral makeup brands on ebay and etsy. They tend to have small cheap samples available so you can get a few for a couple of quid, and they're mixable. You should also be able to get pure white foundation and concealer even if they don't mention it as an option, since they'll use it as an ingredient unless they only make products for dark skin. I got some samples from Funky Fresh, who has a "fairest skin" sample kit and was also happy to do a custom kit for me.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!  I use this shade too - it's literally the only thing that matches my skin that doesn't cost more than ?20 for the bottle!
Thanks for the tip, I'm going to go an stock up!

I love Bare Mineral foundation - gives a lovely finish. Most of the rest of my make up is Mac. Benefit does this lovely half and half lipgloss and mascara. The lipgloss is a pinky nudy colour and the mascara is a sparkly blue which looks great as an eye liner.

Mac eye pencil in 'Tarnish' is my favourite ever eye liner. It's a gorgeous shimmery bottle green and looks more dramatic, yet not as harsh as black eye liner.

Also, not strictly make up but Herbal Essences 'Smooth and Soft' shampoo and conditioner is the best I've ever used. My hair is past my hips, thick and frizzy and this stuff has tamed it beyond belief. Easier to detangle and blow-dry  ;D

Finding fine red glitter is a bit of a challenge, though.

Anika Mae, Hi sorry to make my first post a reply to this, I have been following for about a month, and loving the forum and Saafe site, anyway, re:above, I have been trying to find fine red glitter suitable for lips for the past week, have you any recommendations please, I only need a little I want a one time use, but would happily purchase more than needed if I could find the stuff!

Thanks :D

Hi Belle and welcome  :)

I thought I might like some fine red glitter too, and I found this (and they're on 5 for 4, so you could get a few different ones to try out - the colours look fab). My order's already sent, but then internet shopping was made for people like me  :D.

I found it on the Tesco Direct site here. The rumour I remember was something about the brand getting bought out by Rimmel, but it was a while ago and nothing much seems to have changed so I wouldn't worry. I just panicked in case it ran out because it really is the only one I've had any luck with.

Amy's link looks good, but if you're not sure about using craft glitter (I wouldn't worry about it for a single use, actually it only just occurred to me that it could be an issue) Paris Berlin do a red one that's fine enough for lips. I got it from performerszone.com, but I think the shipping's not worth it for very small orders.

I didn't think of it causing problems either (although I checked it was non-toxic), but I agree - I think provided you're not eating spoonfuls of the stuff and it's just now and again it ought to be OK. I wouldn't put it anywhere near my eyes though.
