I know I say this in every favourites post, but it’s already February! I always feel like in January my favourites are already include in my yearly favourites, but I have some products I got for Christmas included. So without blabbering on for too long here’s my January favourites…
I’ll start with face products…
I have found my new foundation love! the Mac Face&Body foundation is so light weight and sheer but incredibly build able. I found my self reaching for this everyday because of it’s natural finish. It lasts all day even with my oily skin. A must in my makeup routine now is the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. It makes your makeup (especially highlighter) look more vibrant and skin like, perfect if you use powder. This really makes my makeup last and I have been religiously spraying it on, every single day since Christmas.
I go between loving matte blush and glowy blush. A the moment I’m loving glowy blush. So my choice has been the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in ROSE. It has an almost highlighting effect on your cheeks and looks really youthful. It’s not super pigmented and just give the right amount to look naturally flushed. Highlighter is my obsession, no amount is too much! So recently the Urban Decay After Glow highlighter in the shade SIN, has been my go-to. It’s a gorgeous pale champagne that packs a punch. I love how healthy my skin looks and how my skin glows when I wear this highlighter, super pigmented and a must try.
I received the Too Faced Bon Bon palette for christmas, almost every day since I got this beautiful palette I have been using it. I’m in love with the shade MOLASSES CHIP which is a warm brown/gold, that is perfect for all over the lid. The shadows are all super pigmented and of course smell amazing. The mascara that I have reached for the most this month (I change mascara constantly) is the Benefit They’er Real mascara. My eyelashes just look amazing when I wear this, like I have false lashes on. I find when I wear this mascara it lasts all day.
The lip combo that I love at the moment is the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Plump lip gloss. With the Jeffree Star ROSE MATTER Velour Liquid Lip. I put the Sexy Mother Pucker on first, this makes your lips tingle and gives them an little extra plumpness. Then I use the ROSE MATTER liquid Lip. It’s a bit different from my usual nude lipsticks, bolder but wearable. Also lasts all day.
The Revlon contour brush has been my go-to for contouring and bronzing. As it’s shape perfectly to give you a soft contour which is what I go for everyday. Not to mention this is honestly the softest brush I own. The Real Techniques buffing brush is an old favourite, I have been using this over my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge. I love how fast and easy it blends foundation and concealer, and gives an air brushed finish.
I received the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming for Christmas, and I’m totally in love with it! For me this is the perfect everyday scent (a review will be coming soon!) I’ve even received a few complements when wearing it. Not to mention the bottle is pink and gorgeous.
