Current favourites

I'm not one to do a monthly favourites, sometimes I stick to the same things for months so I don't want to be repeating myself. So today I bring you my current favourites. 

First up is my base of choice at the moment, the Benefit Big Easy. It is a very light yet buildable foundation. I like the fact that I can see my freckles and blemishes through it, sometimes I don't feel like caking it on and creating a 2 inch mask on my face, call me crazy! I was worried at first as I have combination to oily skin, but it has a velvety finish which looks so natural on the skin. I am so happy that I picked it up.

My concealer of choice has been the Soap & Glory Kick Ass, only the salmony pink shade mind you. I love it for under my eyes, it cancels out my dark circles incredibly without being a thick consistency. I don't really like the other shade because it's a bit too yellow toned for my skin. It also comes with a translucent powder which is also worth a mention, it's very fine and perfect for taking away shine. 

Next is the ByTerry Growth Booster mascara. My friend Hayley bought me this for Christmas. I have been using it since then and it's truly love! It gives great length and volume to the lashes. The thing I love most about it is that it never looks clumpy, no matter how many coats I do. I will definitely be repurchasing it when it runs out, even if it is bloomin' pricey!

Here is another Benefit product, it's the Dallas box powder. I'm a little late to the party on this one, I bought it in March. I am obsessed with it. It's perfect to pair with a bright lip or a more intense eye look. I find that it looks a bit different on everyone, on me it's a lovely rosy toned bronze shade. Love love love.

Finally we have the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in shade 05. This is my favourite lipgloss ever! It's non-sticky, a gorgeous shade and tastes incredible! Oh my god, does it taste good. I know what you're thing, it tastes good? Trust me. 


Now onto a few non-beauty favourites.

The past 6 weeks of my life has been completely dedicated to watching Gossip Girl series 1-6. It's been a great period of my life. Long, but great. The amount of dreams I've had about being Blair Waldorf is actually quite worrying. I'm ashamed to admit that I cried during the last episode. A battling rollercoaster love story that lasts for 4 series like Blair and Chuck pulls at my heart strings, what can I say?


If you're a regular reader then you'll know that I'm quite a keen baker. Love me some cake. I picked up this magazine from Sainsburys and it's incredible. Some cooking/baking magazines are full of adverts but this one is jam-packed with recipes. My favourite one I have tried so far is white chocolate eclairs, they were beautiful. 


Favourite YouTube channel is Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. Her videos are so genuine and informative. I can't get enough of them, i could watch them back to back. She is also incredibly lovely and beautiful too. Check her out at http://m.youtube.com/user/ViviannaDoesMakeup .
