For today’s post I thought I would share my current makeup favourites, there are some brand new beauties and some golden oldies as well!!
This was the first Morphe palette that I owned and it is definitely one of my favourites. The Morphe 35K Eyeshadow Palette has a lovely variety of cool and warm tone browns as well as some really pretty blues which I have been using quite a lot recently. There is one blue shimmer shade in particular which I love for the inner part of the eyelid to give it a pop! The shadows are so blendable and stay on all day!
When Kylie Jenner released her Valentine collection I knew I needed the Head Over Heels Lip Kit. It is such a beautiful dark purpley-nude and I feel that it really suits my skin tone. (I’m sure all you pale girls know how hard it is to find a dark lipstick that doesn’t make you look like a ghost!) The formula is really comfortable on the lips and lasts for a really long time without drying your lips out! Luckily after it’s success, Head Over Heels has also been made a permanent part of her collection!
I recently went for a browse in T K Maxx and found this Too Faced Selfie Powder Palette for only £9.99! (It’s full price on the website is normally £32!) I must say I had never seen this product before but it definitely intrigued me. It is made up of 3 shades; Sunrise, Totally Toasted and Moon River. Sunrise is a yellow powder which is great for brighting under the eyes and Moon River is a really nice powder to wear under your highlight to make it pop. But I have to say that my favourite powder from this palette is the bronzer, Totally Toasted, it is such a beautiful warm toned bronzer that actually makes my skin look sun kissed and not orange or a dull brown!
When it comes to blusher I normally wear quite muted, matte, nude shades as I already have quiet red cheeks. But when I swatched this Sleek Rose Gold Blusher I fell in love with it! It is a pink blush with a slight shimmer but the thing that made me buy it is that the shimmer reflects gold which I thought looked so pretty! It applies really nicely and blends out well so you don’t end up with bright pink cheeks.
Last but definitely not least is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit that they have released with American beauty guru Nicole Guerriero. When I saw the pictures of this all over Instagram I was shocked at how beautiful it was. I tried to talk myself out of buying it but after a particularly bad week I decided to order it to cheer myself up. I am going to do a post all about the palette itself soon, which will include swatches and my full review!
What makeup bits have you been loving lately, let me know! I love discovering new products!
