2019 Beauty Changes

Reflecting on 2019 it was probably my busiest year work wise but somehow I still managed to get in a fair amount of me time with regards to beauty. I tried so many new products and made a few changes that I wanted to share, none of which were particularly conscious attempts to level up but new things I fell into.

Okay so I've already lied, the first one was a conscious decision, partly to benefit my skin and partly as a means to be a little more environmentally conscious. I've been switching over to face cloths instead of wipes for a few years now and this year I also purchased a Face Halo which I absolutely adore.

My everyday makeup

Just a quick one today while I finish off a longer post I've been working on. I went to dinner the other night and actually had the forethought to photograph my makeup. This is my go to makeup for work, or simple nights out, it's minimal and quick to do but wearing eye shadow always makes me feel like I've made an effort.

2019 Beauty Favs

Hello 2020! It's great to be back - yes yes, you have deja vu, I DID make a reappearance about this time last year that lasted all of three months. I'm not going to promise that won't happen again, but here I am to attempt to start a monthly favourites series.

I wanted to give my monthly favs a kickstart by sharing some of my top products of 2019 as a whole, there's been so many so it wasn't easy to narrow down to just a few.

Orange Eyes for Spring

Despite these occasional storms it's really starting to feel like Spring and I couldn't be more ready for it. I'm definitely a summer lover, I'd happily trade in the other three seasons. One colour that always gets me thinking about Spring whether it's on lips, cheeks or eyes is orange, I love seeing a pop of orange in someone's makeup it's such a happy colour.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Le Rouge

I'm sorry if you're well and truly bored of looking at lipsticks after the three Anastasia Beverly Hills posts of late but I HAD to share this with you guys immediately. I won this lipstick on Twitter from one of Dave Lackie's generous giveaways and finally got round to trying it. I'd RT all the time and never expect to actually win something myself, so exciting!

I won a YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade 01 Le Rouge and was so thrilled, I don't own a lot of YSL makeup so it always feels super fancy and winning this was such a treat.

Glitter Charcoal Face Mask

Face masks aren't something I've really talked about on here before even though they're something I use regularly. I reckon a lot of you will agree that slapping on a face mask is one of the easiest ways to feel pampered with minimum effort.

It was my birthday last weekend and this mask was one of my gifts, it came at the perfect time as I was just about to stock up on peel-off masks after discovering to my horror I'd run out. It's like they knew!!

REVIEW // Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette: Part 3

I can't believe it's the final part of this review at last. Having so many shades to share in each part has made this feel a lot more of a slog than it really was. If you haven't checked out part 1 and part 2 yet go have a peek first. This last part is slightly different than the other two because the majority of these six shades are mixing colours.
