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.
About a year or so ago, I shared my Most Worn Lipsticks and I was looking back at it and realised I could do with updating it a little. Whilst I still use and love all the lipsticks featured in there, I wouldn’t describe them all as being my ‘most worn’ anymore – there are new favourites in town.
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.
As we all know, December is officially *the* party season due to all those Christmas work and friends parties and of course, New Year’s Eve at the end of the month. I’m the kind of person that gets way more excited about dressing up my makeup than actually dressing up with outfits and I always like to switch up my makeup to be a little be more than I would on a daily basis. Today I thought I’d share some of my favourite party picks!
