LOVING LATELY #1








































I originally intended for this to be an October favourites post but considering it's already a week into November I realised I am definitely not organised enough for deadlines like that. So instead I'm going to do these 'Loving Lately' posts where I tell you about my current favourites every now and again - like monthly favourites but without the pressure.

I am definitely a foundation hoarder. I am constantly trying new ones in my quest to find The Perfect Foundation and with the L'oreal True Match I've definitely come close. I have the shade N1 Ivory which it is perfect for my ghost face and I love the way it not only comes in a wide range of shades but also different undertones. This is a classic example of my favourite type of foundation: light to medium coverage, natural skin-like finish and lightweight. I laaarve it.

Recently I've been looking for a new concealer to replace my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which I do love but find it a little bit drying and cakey, especially in the colder months. Enter the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade 15. The formula is creamy, blendable and moisturising but still high coverage making it perfect for under my eyes or on spots. Well impressed.

The L'oreal Glam Bronze Bronzer was something I bought on the recommendation of Amelia Liana who is an absolute babe. Unsurprisingly, she was spot on with this. The shade Blonde Sun is quite a bit lighter than most bronzers and also matte which means it's perfect for us pale girls without being too orange or muddy.

I have no idea how I managed without the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil. This wonderful little product has a teeny tiny pencil on one end and a spoolie on the other - very similar to the famous Anastasia Brow Wiz but far cheaper. I am kind of obsessed with eyebrows and this pencil helps you create the most natural looking but defined eyebrows ever. Since using this I've received a tonne of compliments on my brows so thanks very much, Soap and Glory!

One of my worse habits is picking my lips. Whenever I'm bored or nervous or just need something to occupy my hands I end up picking at my lips, often until they bleed. I know, gross. And when it's gets colder they get sore and even drier and it isn't a pretty sight. The Carmex Cherry Moisturising Lip Balm has been an absolute life saver. It just works magic on my lips making them so soft and it smells delish which is obviously a plus.

So that's everything I've been loving lately. I'm hoping to carry on these posts every now and then when I've gathered enough things worth sharing.

Thanks for reading x
