Hourglass Veil Mineral  Primer // Ambient Lighting Powder - Ethereal Light // Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil // Ambient Lighting Blush Palette // Ambient Lighting Powder Palette //

As you may know by now I'm a bit of an Hourglass addict (you can see my recent posts here 1/2/3). After falling in love with their products in January I've managed to build up my collection so much that I can do my whole face just using Hourglass products and I love it! That being said, it takes a while to build up a collection because of the price so I thought i'd share with you my 5 must haves.

A primer is an essential in all makeup bags I think and this is the best I've ever tried. Yes it is pricey but it's so good that you could afford to use any foundation on top of these because it keeps everything in place. My mum describes it like putting Angel Delight on your face, it's so soft and soothing. This is definitely the first thing I'd recommend anyone to buy! The Ambient Lighting Powders are a multi-use product which means you really get your moneys worth. I mainly use mine as a setting powder all over my face but recently I've started using it as more of a highlight. It's the prefect product to do a little day time appropriate strobing.

Brows are the be all and end all for me, I never leave the house without something in my brows and this is perfect. It has a brush on one end and a slanted tip on the other (Hourglass have just released 6 new shades FYI). The slanted tip makes this the easiest brow pencil to apply. I'm hoping to do an updated Brow Routine post very soon so keep your eyes peeled. Who doesn't love a blusher and when you have a beautiful limited edition palette in front of you you can't say no! All 3 shades are beautiful, my favourite is the middle Incandescent Electra. Because they are hand made the marble effect is different on every palette, which means the colours look slightly different on everyone  (I've reviewed it in depth here).

The Ambient Lighting Powder Palette is the next thing I would say you definitely need from Hourglass after the primer. The 3 shades do such a good job at adding colour, warmth and depth to your face. I use the first shade all over for a warm glow, the second shade as a highlight and the last shades as a contour. It looks so natural and healthy; me, my mum and my sister all have these and they just make such a difference to your makeup.

So these are my top 5 recommendations but like I said I love everything! I'm thinking of doing an Hourglass Collection post so if you'd like to see that comment below or tweet me @studentstylexo

  3. Wooow gorgeous products and photography! I wasn't bowled over my the powders in all honesty but I like the one I have well enough. The blushes however blew me away and if I had to throw all my others out and only use one it would be Mood Exposure :) xx
