Can you believe we are almost in November? I have no idea where this year has gone, last month I didn’t really have much favourites, so I decided to add them onto my October favourites. The past two months I have found a few new products that I’m in love with and a couple of hair products that have changed my hair!
First is Organix kukui oil this has been a life saver! My hair is very frizzy and basically untameable. Until I got this. I was looking for an oil that would help with my frizz and this has changed my hair, I can now wear it down without heat and my hair won’t frizz up and look a complete mess, makes my hair shiny and soft too. The Percy and Reed Wonder Overnight Recovery is my favourite time saving hair care product, you can wear this over night and wash it out in the morning. I tend to wash my hair at night so I either put this in my hair the night before or in the morning. It’s a cream texture but in seconds completely soaks into your hair and smells so amazing. I have never had any issues with the mask being in my hair during the day my hair just feels soft and smells great. I wash it out and it adds extra softness and shine to my hair. The Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s invisible oil is a must if I’m using heat on my hair, this protects the hair from heat and I love it especially on the ends of my hair to stop them going dry. This also helps stop my hair from going crazy frizzy and makes my hair smooth all day.
The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Moistrue Sparkle Cream is now one of my favourite day moisturisers all time, this just makes your skin look so healthy and your skin really glows when you use this. I only ever have to use a tiny amount for my face and neck. I have had it for around a month now I have had no breakouts with this product and my makeup base looks so good on top of this. Not to mention how soft my skin feels after using this.
In the summer months I tend to go for a shimmer bronzer because I want that summer glow to stay. Now that my summer glow has gone I have went back to my old and trusty Benefit Hoola bronzer the perfect mix of cool and warm tone, that you can use it for contour and bronzing. This doesn’t look orange on the skin (even though I’m literally a ghost 👻) and looks natural with a matte and has a build able finish. The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in ROSE has been my blush of choice for the past month or so. I apply this lightly and it gives your cheeks a beautiful glow and works perfectly with highlighter to give your cheeks an over all glowing appearance.
The brush that I have been applying my blush with is the Real Techniques Duo-fiber Contour Brush. I love how I can get the blush exactly where I want it and also because it’s duo-fiber it blends the blush out seamlessly. To keep my makeup in perfect condition all day I have been drenching my face in the Urban Decay All Nightsr Makeup Setting Spray. This really makes your makeup look more like skin and highlight pop, I really feel this makes your makeup last longer because usually by the end of the day my highlight is only half there and my T-zone is oily, but when I use this my highlight is still there and my T-zone only slightly oily.
For eyeshadow I have been keeping it simple, the Stila Eyeshadow in the shade KITTEN has been my favourite. It’s so pigmented it’s crazy and looks beautiful on the eyes and flatters every eye colour and any makeup look. It’s so pigmented I even used it as a highlighter. I have been breaking out a little bit so I needed a cheaper concealer that was full coverage, but I’m not the biggest fan of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, I find it drying on my skin. However I love the Seventeen Stay Time 18hr concealer in Fair, this is more of the texture of the Urban Decay Naked skin concealer. It covers blemishes like a dream blends beautifully and I have even used it as an eyeshadow primer and it worked really well.
I have found my perfect eyebrow duo, the Benefit Goof Proof eyebrow pencil makes it so easy to fill I your eyebrows, the pencil is angled so it is great to get the tail of the brow and fill in the front of the brow lightly. The Benefit Ready, Set, Brow! Is literally glue for your eyebrows, I struggled with my eyebrows going everywhere by the end of the day, but with this setting gel they stay put in place all day long.
