I, frankly, love Stila cosmetics. They have a whole host of gorgeous, nude-y shades and exquisite formulas that I think are fairly overlooked in the beauty world! Here are a few of my favourite pieces, that if you don't own already, well, it's obvious what you need to do!
Eyeshadows and Smudge Crayons. Kitten is the perfect mix of champagne, pink and gold, and I think is possibly (or probably!) my favourite eyeshadow of all time. It's the easiest colour to wear (all over the lid for me), has the perfect amount of shimmer and sheen, goes on creamy and smooth, blends with very little effort and wears beautifully.
Chinois a is gorgeous, creamy, off-white colour with a velvet/satin finish. I blend it close to my lashline, the lightness behind my lashes makes them stand out more, #toptip!
Golden Topaz is a Jewel shadow meaning it's glittery/foiled. It's a gorgeous copper-y colour with a silvery glitter. (It's what you see on the left!)
The Smudge Crayons are beautiful cream-to-powder shadows in a twist up stick. I love the effortlessness of products like this, I literally draw it onto my lids, blend with my finger and throw it back into my handbag. Antique is the warm brown-y-bronze you see on the right and hello, I own it in Kitten too.
Smudge Pot. My one is Kitten again. Same gorgeous colour, this time in a gel eyeliner come cream-shadow texture. I'll use this as a base for other shadows or double up with Kitten to up the intensity! I used it in my Heat-Proof Makeup Look and it's gorgeoussss.
Liquid Liner. There are countless black liners around, and a lot of good ones. I like the Stila one for it's black-idy-black depth of colour and the super fine and workable tip, making application a doddle.
Highlighters. The Stila Shimmer Duo is in shade, you guessed it, Kitten. I've got a full review on this beauty because it deserves some time all to itself.
One Step Illuminate is another gorgeous multitasker. You can use this illuminating serum alone as highlighter or a very subtle blush, or mix it into your favourite moisturiser or foundation. It's super light, hydrating texture makes it great for mixing with most things in fact, I like to mix it with other cream blushes to get that 'flushed from within' look or pat it neat onto my cheekbones. It's just beautiful.
Rose Gold Shimmer. Akin to the luminizer but with more gusto, this liquid highlighter-come-blush gives the most gorgeous, radiant glow with a rosy, golden hue. It's hard to mess up application; I blend a little, effortlessly onto my cheekbones with my fingers when I'm in a rush. You can see the effort in my Summer Makeup Tutorial.
