Makeup That I Need To Use More In 2018

Hey beaut's!

More often than not I forget about some absolute makeup gems within my collection, I'm such a makeup addict and buy so much makeup I just cant keep track of what I've got sometimes, and that means I miss out on using some gorgeous pieces even though their sat in my Alex drawers. I recently had a bit of a makeup clear out and organisation and picked out a few products that I know I definitely want to get some use of again so I thought I'd share them with you all today!
I switch up my lipsticks all the time and often forget about the 10 swimming in the bottom of my handbag but one I definitely need to use more this year is MAC's Whirl. Whirl is such a 90's throwback shade and is the prettiest medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish, it looks lovely on and I cant believe I forget about it. Next up is a couple of foundations, I'm a creature of habit when it comes to my foundations and just repurchase my favourites over and over which means I don't get to use all the others I own, but two that I know I LOVE and need to get more use of is L'Oreal's Lumi Magique and the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. These are both extremely good foundations, the Lumi Magique is super glowy, very light weight, silky soft, blends into the skin well and provides hydration all day and the Born This Way Foundation has AMAZING coverage without feeling heavy or cakey at all. Next is my Technic Metalix Eyeshadow Cream, I actually own three of these, two of which I use loads but the third in the shade Taupe Be has actually been lost for a while so that's why I need to get more use out of this beauty, I'm so happy I found it because the formula and colour payoff of these is insane!
Arhhh the adorable Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette...I haven't used this much because in all honestly I wasn't blown away with the formula but I mean just look at it, it contains the most stunning looking powders which I NEED to make work this year. The highlighter shade creates a lovely peachy-champagne glow, the blush is the most beautiful shade of peach and is super dewy looking and the bronzer is nice and warm, I just need to become friends with the formula again and we will be fine hehe. 

Finally we have the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eyeshadow Palette, I can honestly say these matte eyeshadows are the BEST quality matte eyeshadows I have ever used or owned. They are so well pigmented and blend like an absolute dream, matte shades can be chalky sometimes too and create a lot of fallout but these aren't chalky what so ever, I'm definitely going to use this beauty more this year!

What makeup from your collection do you want to use more of this year? I'd love to know beaut's!
