I thought I’d type up a little blog post instead of filming a video… This year has been a year of amazing discoveries and a few items I’ve tried have become firm favourites.
Estee Lauder Double Wear; I purchased this as a potential foundation for my wedding and whilst I did wear it then (and it was flawless!), I have also been using it on a day to day basis. I find it can be built up to a completely flawless full coverage or worn slightly more sheer for a medium coverage. Bourjois Twist up the Volume; This is my ultimate favourite mascara. Although I regularly stray from this to try the newest launches, I always come back to this for thick long and volumised lashes. Jeffree Star Liquid Lipsticks; although this year has been a bit of a drama filled year for JSC, I really do love the formula of his lipsticks. They are so comfortable to wear and I absolutely love them! The shade range really is something else too, and they really do last all day. Nars Albatross Highlighter; I purchased this on a whim earlier in the year and it is SO beautiful. It is the perfect golden highlight and I love how it looks on the skin. I think it would work perfectly for lots of different skin tones.
Skin; as you may or may not know, I’m not big on skincare. I’m rubbish at removing my makeup and definitely don’t take great pleasure in a full skincare regime which I know so many people do! This year has been a big year for me however with getting married and I tried a couple of highly recommended bits from Kiehls which have become part of my everyday skincare regime.
Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment; this is so thick and luxurious and I love it. I feel like it plumps my under eyes and elps me stop looking quite so tired! Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream; This is such a nice face cream, it helps hydrate my skin and makes it feel super silky. I am currently using the Ultra Facial Balm at night which adds a high level of hydration overnight. Una Brennan Facial Scrub; This smells so fresh and zingy, and the scrubbers are just the right size. I love this for refreshing my skin. Nuxe Reve De Miel; this is an oldie but a goodie for me. It helps keep my lips hydrated and I like to apply this before I go to bed each night! Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Shower Gel and Scrub; I love this scent anyway but it now hold extra special memories for me as I used it the day of the wedding and kept getting a whiff of the lime-y goodness! Elizabeth and James Black Nirvana; I purchased this perfume in November 2015 when we were in Las Vegas and it reminds me so much of getting engaged that I had to wear it when we got married in November this year. Scent is such a strong memory trigger for me that it just transports me back!
What have you been loving this year?
