Current Favourites ♥

Hey! I hope you had a good weekend. I am currently full of the cold.. the joys of winter time! My grandparents are coming up from Ayrshire this week to stay with me and my family so I am really excited and if we go anywhere or do anything I will probably take my camera and write about my day because a lot of you enjoyed my London and Brighton posts. I just hope my cold goes away in time for them coming! 
I haven't done a current favourites or a monthly favourites in such a long time so I thought now would be the perfect time to show you all what I am loving. 
This is probably no surprise to any of you that this palette is featuring in my favourites but I use it every day and I think Autumn and Winter time is where it fits in the best. I have been using more shimmery shades recently such as the copper shade (Chopper) and the golden shade (Half Baked). If you want to read more about the Naked 2 palette I have a seperate post (here) which reviews it fully.
A lot of bronzers look terrible on my pale skin. They are either too dark brown or far too orange and they make me look like I have smeared mud onto my face. However, this bronzer is perfecto! I find it very light at first until you build it up which I really like as I hate when bronzers are at full pigmentation on the first swipe onto your cheeks. I build up to the perfect bronzed, golden shade and it makes my face look slightly less chubby. It also smells of chocolate which is a total bonus!
I have recently went back to this foundation as I decided I wanted to try out some new foundations for summer. I wish I hadn't bothered because every other foundation I bought was a complete waste of money as no others match up to this one. I love the colour, it is really pale, it almost matches my skin perfectly. It lasts all day and it doesn't oxidise either which is brilliant. I have a full review here if you want to read more.
I love how this mascara lengthens, thickens and separates each individual eyelash. It is a complete bargain at 4.99. I can't rave about it enough. It is just brilliant. You have to go and get it.
I have been trying out a lot of different powders recently and this is the only one which seems to do the trick for me. It lasts all day and even if I need a touch up it doesn't go cakey or make my face look fake. It also doesn't stick to dry patches on my face.
*The best liquid eyeliner everrrrr* 
I love this eyeliner so much. it is super black, the applicator brush is thin and so easy to use and it dries instantly and lasts all day.. what more can I say.. oh yeah it's only £3.95!
MUA Single eyeshadow "shade 30" - £1.00
 I have been using this eyeshadow below my bottom eyelashes most days. It really brightens them up and compliments my blue eyes. I love how pigmented it is and how shimmery the tiny flakes are.
I have been enjoying using this nude lipstick with dark eyes recently, it is a nice transition colour from summer to autumn. It lasts about 2 hours without me having to reapply it and it leaves my lips soft and moisturised. It has a semi matte finish which I think looks great.



  1. A lot of these are my current favourites too. I'm using my Naked 2 so much more lately. I love that Revlon foundation, my Mum recommended it to me and now I'm constantly repurchasing it.



  2. I lovveee the Naked 2 palette, I use mine everyday as well! The shades are gorgeous!
