So after being inspired by all the pretty makeup on pinterest, I'm inspired to go out and boost my makeup supply, which pretty much only consists of foundation and lip gloss atm The thing is I'm not sure which are good brands, so recommend me your favourite brand/product to get me started. Thanks ladies.

I love Stargazer, Medusas makeup, the more popular brands are good too. It depends what pigments you are looking for, and vegan makeup in the brands i mentioned are particularly good too! - MAC and Napoleon are my favs also!

Re: Best Makeup??????????
Napoleon for primer, concealer foundation and powder
YoungBlood also for foundation and powder
Rimmel for mascara and lipstick
Mac for lipstick, blush and eyeshadows
Savvy (priceline) for eyeliner, lip liner, brow pencil - it's ridiculously cheap but I love it

Smashbox for primer, foundation and powder (halo powder - life changing stuff!) and eyeliner
Too faced for bronzer and any contouring type powders, plus their "better than false lashes" mascara
MAC for eyebrows and lips (I also like smashbox lipsticks too) I ocasionally use their mascara too, or a dior one.
Brushes I love smashbox, but sigma do a nice cheaper version too
Do you have a Kit Cosmetics near you? They have a nice range and are super helpful and will actually sit down with you and find products that suit your skin type and colouring. What works for one person won't always work for another. For example, I have to mix two shades of foundation together as I'm a horrible "in between" colour and I don't match any one foundation.
Good luck! And have fun

I highly recommend you try the B&B cream, I like the L'Oreal one the best. It is a 5 in 1 perfecting cream, moisturiser, primer, foundation, sunscreen and hydrator all in the one tube. It's amazing! Easy to apply, good coverage and you save alot of money only having the one product!

I used to work on the Myer beauty counters. At the end of a long day at work, the sales assistants whose makeup stilled looked fresh and gorgeous were always the girls at Estee Lauder and Chanel.
Estee Lauder is my favourite because:
- they have very natural colours
- they give you free samples and less pressure to purchase
- the Doublewear range seriously lasts all day (I love their foundation, eyeliner and lipliner)
- once you've visited a counter and worked out what products you want, you can buy it all REALLY cheap online from ebay or Strawberrynet so it ends up being the price of Maybelline.
Have fun! Go to a counter at a quiet time, find a really nice girl, and get her to show you EVERYTHING and do a makeover. Then buy 2 products to make her happy, get her to write down everything else, and buy it cheap online.

I'm trained as a makeup artist but pretty much inexperienced in it. I'm a member of a professional forum though, for makeup artists, and their favourite foundations seem to be make up for ever hd foundation and graftobian.
I personally like young blood mineral powder (not a fan of their liquid) but you need a kabuki brush to properly apply it or it looks awful.
A primer is pretty essential too. It can make a crap foundation last and look good.
I don't spend much on colours. I know people rave about pigments but how much colour are you actually going to use? Unless you're a fashion model doing your own looks, go to lots of nighttime events or are just out there... Chances of you wearing lots of vibrant colours is pretty small. Most people go fairly natural, or at least natural colours, maybe with the odd purple shadow or bright lippy or something thrown in. So in all honesty, I think it's a waste for a personal kit.
If you want a foundation easy to get ahold of, Estée Lauder double wear is pretty damn good.
