Spectrum Talks: Makeup Must-Haves
Makeup trends come and go, but there are some makeup products that stand the test of time. We all have those products in our makeup bags that we keep going back to, whether it’s your favourite designer lipstick or a blusher that makes your cheeks glow like no other.
So, do you guys have any makeup products that you just couldn’t live without?
To find out, let’s take a look at the latest round-up of responses to our weekly Twitter chat.
What is your favourite foundation right now?
We’ve all been there when it comes to a bad foundation. Some are too oily, leaving you looking like you’ve run a marathon by lunchtime, whilst some are too drying, leaving you with no healthy glow. It can be hard to find the perfect balance.
When you find the right one for you, there’s just no letting it go. It seems you pick your favourite foundations based on the time of year.
We can’t forget our fave singer Rihanna’s foundation. The shade range is epic. Hats off to Rhi!

Tell us your all-time favourite concealer? Under eye and for blemishes
We don’t know about you, but Monday mornings are the time of the week we’re most in need of a trusty concealer. The late nights and overindulgence of wine and fries over the weekend unfortunately brings out those under eye bags and pesky blemishes.
Luckily, you guys have given us the best concealer recommendations to help make us look fresh faced in the office on a Monday morning.
Tarte Shapetape - it’s worth the hype! You only need a small amount tho, it goes a really long way and it can be tempting to slather it on when your skin doesn’t need it!— Sali // Moo (@msmoomakeup) August 16, 2022
You all love that natural finish when it comes to concealer, no one likes cakey under eyes!
Glossier stretch concealer is superb in my opinion! Super natural finish! X— Pandora 🐝 🏳️⚧️ 🏳️🌈 (@JustPandora_x) August 16, 2022
Best compact and loose setting powder
We’re in need of some inspiration!
There’s nothing worse than spending hours on your makeup for a big night out only for it to smudge off right away. So, getting that perfect setting powder that will keep your makeup in place is important.
Sometimes the cheaper brands are the best. And it seems you agree.
Again I’ve been using same one since my teens 😂😂 I’ve tried so many but Collection pressed powder is my all time fave! I’m trying to branch out! Any recommendations for oily skin? #SpectrumTalks— Georgina Grogan (@GeorginaGrogan_) August 16, 2022
Every so often, there are times when we want to splash out on something a little more luxury. We’ve heard such good things about the Charlotte Tilbury setting powder, and you seem to love it too!
Favourite eyeshadow palette of all time
This is a hard one, as our favourite eyeshadow palettes will often vary depending on the time of year.
One of you Spectrum sisters said that our Pantherine Palette was your favourite, which we’re super flattered by! And we totally get where you’re coming from; the range of warm and fierce colours means it’s suitable for use all year round.
NOW I know we are biased but the Pantherine is easily my favourite as it covers every season! Sheer perfection 👏🏼💖— Pandora 🐝 🏳️⚧️ 🏳️🌈 (@JustPandora_x) August 16, 2022
Our Spectrum palettes are a real hit with you guys! And we’d have to agree.
Zodiac palette & huda rose quartz! It’s two lol but they are my top two 💗— ℒ𝒆𝓪𝓱🕊 (@LeaBob_) August 16, 2022
What is your go-to lip combo?
You guys love a red lip! Who doesn’t? It’s a staple that every makeup lover should have in their bag.
I LOVE a red lip regardless of the season and currently @vieve modern matte in Muse is phenomenal! Lip liner wise I am looking for a new fav as my all time fav by Sephora was discontinued, so will be looking for everyone’s recommendations!— Pandora 🐝 🏳️⚧️ 🏳️🌈 (@JustPandora_x) August 16, 2022
You, of course, need a reliable nude lipstick too for those days when you’re feeling more of a natural look. You just can’t go wrong; it goes with everything!
Kylie cosmetics koko k or candy k, they go with every look 💗— ℒ𝒆𝓪𝓱🕊 (@LeaBob_) August 16, 2022
