5 Beauty Bits I Love Right Now

favourite beauty

I usually like to mix it up with my make up.

Even if I'm doing the same type of look, which is more than probable, I like to try and use different products and different combos of products. Some combos end up being HG winners and some make me look mouldy.

I haven't been mixing it up all that much this las few weeks. Probably 'cause I'm not really going anywhere more exciting than IKEA for the 11th time this week so the bold lip has to stay in the drawer. Got to reign in the sass, y'know.

Also because I've got a handful of products that I just can't get enough of and ain't no other products stealing their place on my face. These are the ones I'm loving at the moment:

Essence Make Me Brow (£2.50) - A bit of eyebrow context might be good here. I have really long haired brows that grow in every direction, but luckily they are pretty full and have a nice shape. I love running this through my brows on cba days and leaving it at that, if I just want to look less like a featureless slug. If I want a more polished look, I used a pencil or powder and fill in any gaps and shape the tail of my brows a bit more after using the gel. read my review here

NYX Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo (£9) - Let me start with saying the highlight of this is bollocks. I used it twice, and only sparingly, but there is literally none left. However, the contour of this is WOW. It's a beautiful colour, perfectly cool toned for my fair skin. Use a small amount and work quickly for a perf contour. Works especially well with a stippling brush!

Kiko Smart Lipstick Shade 927 (£3.90) - You may not expect much from a lipstick costing less than a fiver, but these are one of my favourite formulas. They are creamy and opaque, relatively long lasting for that kind of formula and fades evenly. I don't mind a lipstick that doesn't last as long as it doesn't fade patchy. It smells legitimately a w e s o m e, too.

Spectrum Brushes 8 Piece Eye Blending Set (£29.99) - I don't have many brush sets. Don't get me wrong, I have A LOT of brushes but I usually just buy individual brushes when I see ones I need want. Martin bought me these brushes as a gift and I absolutely ADORE them. They are beyond beautiful, so soft, vegan and cruelty free. Next stop - I want this face brush set...

GOSH Lumi Drops in Vanilla (£7.99) - Not going to talk much about this as I wrote a whole giant post on it. But like I said, I've been enjoying more minimalist, natural make up recently and this is perfect for a really pretty, natural highlight. Or I use it as a base and apply a more BAAAMMM highlight over the top. I don't think I'll continue to use it as much in the colder months but for summer it's done a beaut job! read my review here.

What are your favourite products at the moment? Are you getting ready for Autumn make up?!

  2. Lovely picks. I haven't tried any of these products! I feel like Spectrum Brushes are a blogger rite of passage - I need to commit. That Kiko lipstick looks like it would be a beaut shade!
