I normally do these little life updates every other month but I just had so much to say in October that I couldn’t resist. I think for the first time ever I’ve actually hit all of my monthly goals for October so let’s just say I’ve had a good month. I honestly think I’m a happier and more motivated person in autumn and winter, I know most people have it the other way round but I’ve always loved this time of year and struggle a little in summer. So here’s to an even more productive November!
I feel like I’ve really dived into the beauty world again this month and that’s pretty much all to do with blogging events. Whenever I go to a blogger event or a beauty press day, I come away feeling so inspired to blog and experiment more with my makeup, and of course, it’s nice to come away with a few new bits to try too. I went through a phase of not going to any at all but in this October alone I’ve been to six so I’ve gone from one extreme to the other! I’m sure you’ll see lots of new makeup over the next few weeks but for now I’m looking at what I’ve been loving and using throughout October whilst attending all those events!
Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to attend a fair few blogging events and the very generous goody bags are definitely helping me cope with my current spending ban – it doesn’t feel quite so painful when there are still new beauty bits to try. I thought today I’d check in with what I’ve been trialing recently and share my first impressions as it has been a little while since I’ve chatted about all things new in beauty. I won’t ramble too much, for once, let’s just get on with the mini reviews.
For a while now I’ve been sharing my blush collection, starting with the peachy pinks and going through to the neutrals. I warned you this was going to be a long series as my blush collection is slightly out of hand and today I’m back with the latest collection and that’s the brights. I used to have a real thing for bright blushers, I was instantly attracted to the weird and wonderful which is so unlike me as you all know I love my neutrals when it comes to pretty much everything else. I’m not quite as adventurous as I used to be but these blushers all still get some love and have a very special place in my makeup heart!
The last time I wrote about my current everyday makeup look was all the way back in March and things have definitely changed since then so I thought it was finally time to show up a more up-to-date version. Now, my makeup changes just as much daily as it does weekly and monthly, so doing these kinds of posts are always slightly tricky, however, I have some firm favourites that make really regular appearances and that are housed in my ‘everyday makeup’ unit and today I’m going to share with you just what they are.
