The start of this month was about getting excited for the sales, I ended up purchasing a lot of make up at the start so was trying out some great new stuff. A lot of what I’ve been using this month is old favourites, I guess I haven’t really experimented that much apart from using the Naked basics palette which is what I reach for on most days.. love it! As I’m settling back into my uni routine and focusing on my dissertation, experimenting with makeup has taken a bit of a back seat.. My favourites have been quite limited but I would that the Benefit porefessional and UD naked basics palette have to be at the top of my list.
Not been feeling too bold this month but on the days that I have reached for a lip colour it has been the Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stain in Romantic, it comes out quite sheer on my lips but a few layers gives you a more darker stain on the lips. It lasts all day which is amazing.
Perfume of the month has to be Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, picked it up in the Boots sale and have pretty much been wearing it every day.
I managed to get the eco tools eye brushes and they have been amazing for applying shadow this month, there is 5 in total and they’re all different sizes so really useful and a great size for travelling too. I didn’t think I would be too impressed with the Fresh Cheeks blush from Look Beauty, but I really love the cream formula, it easily blends into the skin, and I’ve been teaming this up with the elf baked blush to add a bit of a highlight.
