 Current Favorite Makeup
Nars Sheer Glow | ELF Under Eye Setting Powder | Rimmel Moisture Renew In Love With Ginger | Rimmel Moisture Renew Coral Brit | Anastasia Brow Wiz | Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

Lately I’ve been a huge creature of habit, always using the same products. That may be because I need some better storage, currently I can only see the makeup that is on the top of the pile.. But when I find something good I find it hard to move on, change is a hard thing after all.

I’ve been gravitating to just a touch of makeup these days. Something to even out my skin tone, define my brows a little more and something moisturising for my lips. And then theres the eyeshadow that I have no idea how I lived without (dramatic much?), even though I only ever have time to put it on on the weekends :(

What is your favourite makeup product at the moment?

Holiday Planning + Swatches + eBay Love

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Best of the week

It’s Sunday again so I’m sharing with you my favourite thing from this past week all wrapped up into one post!

eBay Love
I love to online shop, the one problem being that it costs a lot of money. Solution = eBay. There is a lot of junk on there but if you’re willing to spend a bit of time browsing you can find some real gems! I’ve grouped together a few of my favourite finds here.

Holiday Planning
I posted earlier this week about Matt and I finally booking our trip to Bali in January! I am super excited and counting down the days until we leave. We’ve got a few things that we really want to do, included climbing a volcano at 4am to see the sunset, but if anyone has any recommendations or tips please share!

Guy Fawkes
I look forward to Guy Fawkes every year! We bought a bunch of fireworks and set them off in the backyard on Friday night.

Rimmel Matte Apocalips
I posted about the Rimmel Matte Apocalips arriving on my doorstep just a little while ago.. It took me a while to finally to film a swatch and review video, but it is up on my channel now! To be completely honest they were a little bit of a let down for me, I think I hyped them up in my head a little bit too much.

October Favourites

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

MOctober Favourites
And it’s that time of the month again ;) I missed out on sharing my favourites last month but I’ve got some really great things for this month! What was your favourite beauty product or movie/tv show/music for October?

Zoella Beauty
I hauled a few products from Zoella Beauty in this video. After using them a few times I can tell that I am in love with the Creamy Dreamy Madly Body Cream and the Soak Opera Bath Soak (love the names!). Whats impressed me most about these products is how affordable they are, I’m not one to spend large amounts of money on bubble bath and body lotion unless its a sneaky little trip to Lush!

Million Dollar Tan
The weather is finally starting to warm up here and that means I’m going without the tights recently. My legs haven’t seen much sunlight since last Summer so to say they’re a bit pale would be an understatement. This tan has such a lovely natural colour that lasts about 7-10 days on me. It’s super easy to apply being a lotion and doesn’t have that horrible fake tan scent.

Too Face Chocolate Bar Palette
Before I got my hands on this palette, the last one I had bought was the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette which was a little while ago. I probably didn’t need this palette, but that not really the point.. It has such beautiful shades! Neutrals, pops of colour, shimmers, mattes. It’s just my all round favourite palette at the moment.

MAC Rebel
I go through phases with lip products. I love them to bits for a week or month or longer, then move onto the next one. At the moment that lipstick would be MAC Rebel. Whenever I’m applying my makeup and looking for something to wear I always pick this. I either dab it on for a sheer wash of colour, or swipe it over my lips for the beautiful berry shade. It has great lasting power and doesn’t dry out my lips which is a bonus!

NARS Sheer Glow
I find foundations tricky.. I have a lot that I like, but only a few that I love. I’m not 100% sure yet but I think Sheer Glow is making its way into the foundation that I love. I’ve been wearing it most days through October since it arrived on my doorstep. My skin hasn’t been the kindest to me recently with a few dry patches but excusing those I love the way it makes my skin look. Great coverage without looking like I’m wearing much makeup at all.
