I am very loyal to my makeup brushes, I do test new ones but I have a specific set which I always go for, mainly a mix of Real Techniques, Zoeva, and MAC. I wouldn’t say I extensively use brushes or use loads of them, but the ones I do reach for always come with me. Recently, I thought I’d test myself and create a brush-less makeup routine, kind of joint with a travel not-much-space-in-my-bag routine, so let’s take a look at the products I picked out.


The last time I shared my current makeup look was back in October and as always, things have changed a fair bit since then – especially since I gained a fair few new makeup bits recently. I also didn’t photograph the look back then which was just downright lazy! The makeup look I’m sharing today isn’t strictly my ‘everyday look’, I never wear the same makeup every day and to be honest I spend a lot of my weekdays having no makeup days now anyway. But I have been going for this look a lot on evenings out, weekends and basically when I want to make a little bit of effort, so it’s a good indication of my current ‘go tos’. Let’s take a look.


For the last few years, every month I’ve shared what’s in my makeup bag for the month ahead and yano what I feel like that’s a bit excessive. Instead of going through my whole new beauty routine I’ve just decided to pick out a few key products that I’ll be trialling in the month whether that’s new in my collection or an old returner. Then in a few weeks time, I’ll come back to this and let you know how I’ve been getting on with it all. Sound good? Let’s get going.
