Beauty and lifestyle blogger Lungi shares her must-have daily beauty basics.
I’m Lungi of ByLungi.com, a lifestyle blog where I love to talk about beauty products. I want to share with you the beauty products that I use daily because I know they keep me looking and feeling my best.
ESSENCE EYEBROW GEL MASCARA
I love using this product on days when I’m not wearing makeup to fill in my brows. It creates a natural finish such that your brows don’t look “done” and it helps to keep those stray hairs in place. On days when I’m wearing makeup, I use it on top of the brow pomade to set my brows. It’s a versatile product.

RIMMEL OH MY GLOSS! OIL TINT
Summer is the season for glossy lips and I always have a lip gloss in my beauty bag. I like glosses that give my lips a hint of colour and the product gets extra points if it is moisturising to the lips and not sticky. The Oil Tint from Rimmel, in the shade Contemporary Coral, goes the extra mile because it is formulated with precious oils (coconut, pomegranate, Abyssinian and daikon radish seed) so it’s extra hydrating on the lips.

NYX FRESH FACE BLOTTING PAPER
For people with oily skin like me, the struggle to keep the oil at bay is an ever-present one, especially when wearing makeup. During the day when I feel that my face is getting shiny (especially my T-zone) I always reach for blotting paper to remove some of the shine. These blotting papers from NYX also contain salicylic acid, which helps to fight off pimples. There is also a range of other variants that address different skin concerns so you are bound to find one that will work for you.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT HAND CREAM
Water and soap can be so drying on your hands and thus hand cream is a must-have in a beauty bag. My ideal hand cream is one that is easy to apply, absorbs quickly and leaves my hands feeling nourished. The Pink Grapefruit hand cream from The Body Shop does just that and it smells amazing.
