An ode to our unsung makeup heroes

An ode to our unsung makeup heroes

At beautyheaven, we love to experiment with new and different products. Be it a flashy gel nail polish or an uber-pigmented eyeshadow, we’re all about testing out the latest beauty innovations.  At the end of the day though, even we beauty gurus have our makeup staples. Whether it’s a go-to concealer that never fails to hide a blemish, or a mascara that does exactly what we want it to every day, they never let us down and, if you ask me, it’s about time they got their moment in the spotlight…

The ever-reliable concealer

Whether you’ve got dark circles happening after an unexpected late night or you’ve grown a pimple the size of Mount Everest, we all know what it feels like to wake up to a glaring skin imperfection. Thankfully, you can always rely on your trusty concealer to cover the blemish.

One to try: Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Concealer SPF 10

One of my personal favourite products of all time, this longwearing, easily blendable concealer masks flaws, hides the appearance of dark circles and disguises discoloration.

What our members said:

“Seriously the best concealer I have ever used, and I’ve used pretty much every highlighter/concealer/corrector on the market” – BeautyStar007

“When other concealers cannot cover, and stay put all day, this one is the one to use” – Miss Fiona1

The everyday mascara

The perfect mascara is different for everyone. Some beauties want lashes with length, while others prize volume. Once you’ve found it though, you can be confident in the knowledge that while it may take some time to master the perfect winged eyeliner, your lashes will always look effortlessly lovely.

One to try: Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara

With its perfect five-star review rating, this mascara is loved for its volumising abilities, thickening even the tiniest lashes from root to tip.

What our members said:

“Nothing adds length, volume and curl to my lashes like this mascara! It is absolutely incredible…” – Catherine Intents

“This is the most expensive mascara in my makeup bag, but also the one I use most often. Worth every single cent” – Linda_Vesinger

The perfect lippie

There’s nothing like a slick of your favourite lippie to give you a serious confidence boost. The shade will come down to personal preference, but you can bet this bad boy will have moisturising properties – not to mention serious staying power.

One to try: Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipsticks

Available in 36 gorgeous shades, this long-wearing, richly-coloured lipstick contains beeswax, calendula, vitamin E, evening primrose, and jojoba oils to nourish and moisturise lips.

What our members said:

“I love everything about this lippy, from its bold colour to its sassy packaging” – Ellecooke

“I believe I will end up with a whole collection of these. If I could give them a higher score than five I would” – imalittleteapot

The tinted moisturiser

Combining the benefits of skincare and makeup, a hard-working bb cream is a modern girl’s makeup staple. Keeping your skin soft and hydrated, it also gives you a subtle hint of colour without the feeling of wearing heavy makeup.

One to try: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Original

Formulated to give skin a natural-looking radiance, this all-in-one cream contains Vitamin C and mineral pigments for long-lasting hydration.

What our members said:

“I adore the lovely golden brown tube and find it super easy to use and apply…it is my go-to BB cream…” – Candyfairy

“Great for a no makeup-makeup look” – maddisonrm
