The skincare I am loving is hands down the Bellevue of London night creme, that I use daily and nightly, as it is thick enough to make my skin non-drying. The eye gel and the serum is also great and I will be doing a dedicated post of how much I love the products from this range.
Evolve Raw Cacao & Coconut Radiant Glow Mask is my favourite mask by far. It also doubles up as a scrub as it has raw coconut, but the glow is really noticeable after the mask has come off. I also like their Evolve Hyaluronic Serum 200.
Emma Hardy Moringa Cleansing Balm has been essential for the taking off of my eye makeup, as I wear Eyeliner and mascara everyday. It also smells amazing.
The La Roche-Posay Serozinc toner is also a cult classic and I love to use it after cleansing.
I love the Aroma Theraphy Associates candle, I light it up now and again when I want to relax and enjoy the serenity. The bath oils from Aroma Theraphy Associates are also to die for! My son loves them too. So relaxing in the bath and they smell devine.
Smoothskin IPL is a must and it has meant I have stayed hair-free which is such a stress reliever! I don’t know what I used to do without this in my life, it is definitely a must-have and a true saviour!
My greatest favourite has lasted me years and it has been my eye saviour – The Kat Von D Tattoo liner is absolutely amazing, it lasts forever and best of all once on, it doesn’t budge or smudge. Unfortunately, the eyeliner ran out this year and I have tried a few more, but they smudge all over my eyes and not as good.
I am loving the Rimmel Stay Matte liquid lipstick in Pink Bliss 100. It is a light pink, when I first apply it, it looks quite pale, but as it sits on the lips for a bit, it brightens my complexion up and gives my lips a pink glow. The formula also lasts a couple of hours. I do need to re-apply by lunchtime.
I also love the Smashbox Always On Matte liquid lipstick is also a firm favourite and the formula is also comfortable on the lips and lasts, even when eating food.
The foundation that I have loved has been one that doesn’t cost much (5.90), but is a great foundation that leaves my skin even toned and is ideal for every day wear. Too be honest, I have never found a foundation that has wowed me. So, I was pleasantly surprised that The Ordinary coverage foundation was a perfect match for my skin and didn’t break me out. It’s also good in photos. The shade best suited for me is 2.1Y.
I also like the Charlotte Tilbury concealer, not only is it a good brightening concealer but also can be used for foundation coverage, so a top recommend.
The blusher I love is the Glossier cloud paint in Beam. The main reason I love it, is that it is a liquid form, rather than powder, so it blends well and makes my face beam! (Don’t mind the pun. LOL).
The Mascara I have loved this year is the L’Oreal False lash sculpt which keeps the lashes so long and the non-clumpy Extended Play Lash Mascara for the lower lashes and for overall separation of the lashes.
Have also been loving the spectrum makeup brushes, so unicorn and fun to use. The
Blank Canvas Cosmetics F01 Quick Brush is also best to use with foundation and is also Vegan.
My Aldo Bag had been my favourite Fashion accessory this year. You can see it featured on my Instagram and have had a lot of love for this bag.
Recent purchase, but I love it – River Island bag. It gives me a Dior bag vibe and I love the colour.
Hope you enjoyed my 2017 favourites? What were yours?
