Beauty: Top 5 Holy Grail Products

As you may be able to tell I am a huge beauty addict! Due to this I thought I'd find it incredibly difficult to narrow down my extensive make up collection to my top five holy grail products, however I found it surprisingly easy. Think that just goes to show just how much I love these products.

Of course my all time favourite and holy grail product has to be the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation as this is the only high end foundation I own as I am that obsessed with it. I bought it when it was first launched and haven't turned my back on it since! I just love the dewy finish it gives and can be quite sheer or quite full coverage depending on what I need that day. I'd highly recommend giving this foundation a whirl!

Next up is a concealer favourite in the form of Bobbi Brown's Creamy Concealer. This is a great all round concealer as I love to use it to cover both blemishes and under eye circles. As the name suggests it's super creamy meaning it blends like a dream.

An all time drugstore favourite of mine is Sleek's Contour Kit. I've tried many bronzers and contouring products but this remains a firm favourite of mine. It's the perfect contouring shade as it's cool toned and doesn't contain any shimmer and is a great make up bag staple as it also comes with a highlight. If you're looking to try contouring for yourself and want a product that won't break the bank then I'd recommend buying Sleek's Contour Kit. I'd even go as far as comparing it to Nars Laguna Bronzer.

A product you've seen me rave about numerous times on my blog is Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita Palette. Although it's quite a pricey product, it's justifed by the great shade range and the amazing quality of the eyeshadows. If you're looking for a more in-depth review then check out this post!

Last but not least is Mac's Mineralise Skin Finish Natural. I've never been a massive powder lover but since discovering this product that's all changed! I just find it perfect as the last step in my make up routine to help keep my make up in place and to combat shine and I prefer to mainly apply it lightly to my t-zone area. It's great to have in your daily make up bag to get rid of shine as it may pop up during the day!

What products would make it onto your top 5 holy grail list? Do you love any of the products I've mentioned?
