I popped in to the Illamasqua counter with a friend & had to purchase a few products for my kit top up with some love
Vintage Mettalix Eye Shadows In Embellish & Courtier I used these the next day on some clients and they loved the finish, texture and overall look. At £16.50 5ml (Makeup Artists get 40% discount) these are worth it.
They have a creamy textures, bendable, shimmer and work alone as well as applying eye shadow on top which I did also. I used Embellish and applied Mac Cosmetics Club eye shadow on one client and she loved the colour payoff . They are long wearing and you can apply with finger or flat shadow brush (
MUA TIP I prefer one finger to apply and the other finger to blend
|Illamasqua Haul looking so pretty|
I also purchased 2 Illamasqua brushes the Highlighter Brush £24.50 great for the obvious highlighting and blush. Blending Brush at £22 which I used for blending eye shadow. The brushes are very soft and do pack colour on, are also easy to clean.

I also popped into Harvey Nichols again not meaning to buy anything but left with the two above
Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy Blusher - I just looked at this and asked for the shade I loved the payoff and texture this I can tell will be popular with brides, everyday and party makeup. At £30 if your a makeup lover like me you'll want it, Its my second CT blush so keep them coming
Charlotte Tilbury Retoucher I got this shade for myself and not my kit I use this for under my eyes and blemishes and wow it works wonders, Its creamy, bendable, least creasing concealer I have and of course looks nice the packaging itself - Its £22.50 and comes in a range on tones fairing from lightest to deepest skin tones.
