Beauty Favourites

I'm really getting into these favourites' posts lately!  You can see my general favourites post here.


I bought two primers recently.  Okay, one of them's not a primer but it's the one everyone has been raving about using as a primer; the Nivea for Men post shave balm.  I've only used it once but I noticed my skin broke up afterwards but I will give it another go.  The one I really love, however, is the L'oreal Lumi primer.  Why have I only just picked this up?!


I've fallen back in love with my EX1 foundation which I reviewed here.  It's so good and I'm wondering whether to purchase another as mine is nearly out.  I'm in the shade F200.


Mac prolong wear concealer still remains my ultimate fave although I'm recently loving the Rimmel wake me up concealer as a good drugstore alternative.  I really want to try the Urban Decay weightless concealer everyone is raving about to see if it beats my Mac one.


A few months ago I discovered the brand Makeup Revolution whilst perusing the aisles of my local Superdrug.  I picked up their contour palette and it's SO GOOD.  It has 3 contour shades, two highlighters, one yellow and one pink setting powder and then a very iridescent highlighter that I use to set all over to give a slight glow.


I picked up the NYC sunny bronzer whilst in the US (see my US drugstore haul here) and it's fab.  So subtle but with build able colour and great for contouring too.  AND it was like 3 bucks!


This is so hard because I have so many!  I really like Gingerly by MAC and also Luminoso by Milani which I know is a cult fave.


I also bought the Self Made palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills whilst I was in the US and it's so beautiful.  It has such a good aray of colours and ABH is one of my favourite brands.


I'm currently using Maybelline lash sensation and I really like it for thickening my lashes as although they're quite long they're also quite thin.  I really want to try the new L'oreal one next though.

Lip Product

I've bought so many liquid lipsticks lately and I love all of them!  I'd say the MUA one of my fave because the formula is so good for the price.

What are your favourite beauty products lately?  Please share!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
