I came across the Top 10 tag over at Cliona's blog called Cliona Hill, which was originally created by Jessica from Pretty Chit Chat. I wasn't tagged by the girls to do this, but I thought it would be fun to do it anyway since I'm a huge fan of fun tags like this one.

The Top 10 tag is all about the top 10 beauty products that you can't live without. So if you were going away and you could only take one item from each category with you, what products would you pick? This is where it gets interesting, lol. I have so many favorite products that I love and adore, so it's definitely not easy for me to choose just ten products. I finally managed to narrow it down to just ten products. These are all products that I have been a fan of for a while now, some are even favorites that I have been loving for a couple of years. Keep reading to find out what products I chose for my ''going away'' trip! :-) 

 ♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 110 & 115, HERE

1. Foundation: 
There are lots of foundations that I really like and love to use, but my favorite one is hands down the Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline. I have talked about this foundation a lot in previous blog posts, like my monthly favorites.

The Maybelline Fit Me Foundation is very easy to apply. It looks very natural on the skin and it doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. It has a lovely finish, which makes my skin look very nice and fresh. I use both 110 and 115. 110 has a yellow undertone and looks a bit too light on it's own, while 115 has a pink undertone but is a little on the darker side. I like to mix and match both of these shades together to create a more wearable shade for myself. It's not always easy being a pale ghost in the beauty world! :-) 

 ♥ Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Transparent, HERE

2. Powder: 
I'm loving the Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder by Rimmel London. I have been using it almost every single day since the lovely Krystal from Beauty by Krystal sent it to me in a swap that we did together a while ago.

I mostly use the Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder to set and prevent my under eye concealer from moving around throughout the day. Sometimes, I like to use it on the rest of my face too, just to keep my foundation in place if it's a hot day. It's such a nice powder. It works great and it's really affordable as well! :-)

 ♥ Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15, HERE

3. Concealer:
Definitely the Maybelline Fit Me concealer. It's very easy to blend and it has a nice coverage as well. I love using it with the Fit Me foundation, because they work so well together. It doesn't crease too much under my eyes. I prefer to apply just a little concealer under my eyes, then go back and apply more if I feel like I need some more coverage. That way I won't apply too much product at once and it's going to prevent it from creasing and looking cakey.

This is my second tube of the Fit Me concealer. I don't have much left in the tube, so I need to get my hands on a new one soon! :-)

 ♥ Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta, HERE

 ♥ Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta, HERE

4. Blush:
I have been obsessed with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta for the past month. This blush is rather new to my makeup collection, but I have been using it almost every single day since I got it. It blends easily into the skin. It's got a bit of shimmer in it, which gives the cheeks a nice glow. You can build it up and make it more intense if you want to, or you can sheer it and make it look very natural on the cheeks.

I know that Hourglass isn't the cheapest brand out there, but this blush is so worth the money in my opionion. Everything about this blush is just beautiful. If you are thinking about splurging on an Ambient Lighting Blush from Hourglass, Radiant Magenta is a good choice! :-) 

 ♥ The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 01, HERE

♥ The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 01, HERE

5. Bronzer:
I have been really into the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder by The Body Shop. It looks very natural on the skin. It's easy to apply and blend, has nice pigmentation, it's build able and it doesn't make you look orange like some bronzers do. After hearing so many lovely things about this bronzer, I just had to add it to my collection. It's the perfect bronzer for girls with a fair/light skin tone. 

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, HERE

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, HERE

6. Highlighter:
I'm still sticking to my MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. It's been my favorite highlighter for the past couple of years now, it's also my most used highlighter in my entire makeup collection. I just love how it looks on the skin, very beautiful and glowy.

Soft and Gente isn't one of the the most affordable highlighters on the beauty market, but I think it's worth every penny. A little goes a long way with this one so it's going to last you a very long time, definitely a must have in my book! :-) 

 ♥ Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara, HERE

7. Mascara:
The Rimmel London Lash Accelerator is my favorite mascara at the moment. I used to use it a couple of years ago, but didn't re-purchase it because I had a lot of other mascaras that I needed to use up first. I decided to pick it up again at Boots in London, because I remembered how much I used to love it. I'm so happy that I decided to pick it up again, because I have fallen in love with it all over again.

I love that it doesn't clump or make my lashes stick together. It gives my lashes nice length and volume and it's build able as well. I will definitely be picking up a couple of backups of this mascara soon! :-) 

 ♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette, HERE

♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette, HERE

8. Eyeshadow:
Neutral eyeshadows have always been a weakness of mine when it comes to beauty products, because they are some of my favorite products to test and try out. I always find single eyeshadows or palettes that I want to try out, regardless if I have something similar to it in my collection already.

One of my favorite and most used palettes is the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. It's such a nice, every day kind of palette. The eyeshadows are soft and they feel quite smooth, they are nicely pigmented and easy to blend. I really want to get my hands on the Naked Basics 2 palette, it looks gorgeous. What do you think about it? Have you picked it up yet? It's available at Sephora, HERE! :-) 

 ♥ Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow, HERE

9. Brows:
Definitely Gimme Brow by Benefit Cosmetics. It's been my go-to brow product for a month now and I couldn't be any more happier with it. I have never been good at filling in my brows with powder, so this has been a big game changer for my brows. It's really quick and easy to use and it makes the brows look very natural and pretty. I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago. If you haven't seen it yet, you can find it HERE! :-) 

♥ Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry, HERE

10. Lip Product:
I'm not going to lie, I have become a little addicted to the Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry and it has quickly turned into a big favorite of mine. It feels nice on the lips without being greasy or sticky. I love applying it at night right before I go to bed, because it make my lips so smooth and soft when I wake up the next morning. I reviewed it a while ago. If you missed it,  you can find it HERE! :-)
