Current Beauty Favourites
As it's a little too late to do a July favourites and a little too early to do an August one, I thought I would do a current favourites post to show you a few things I've been loving.
I've seen so many American youtubers raving about this bronzer, so when I was checking the NYC counter in Superdrug and spotted this, I was pretty excited! I'm not really someone who uses bronzer a lot, as I haven't really mastered the skill of applying it yet, but for £1.99 you really can't go wrong! It is a lovely matte bronzer and is a nice natural shade, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try out a bronzer, as this is so cheap but really good.
I'm all about easy-to use products that cut down the time used to get ready and this is definitely one of them. I love using this all over my lids without having to bother with any other colours and yet it still provides a gorgeous, pigmented colour that makes you look like you put in a lot more effort than you actually did! And who doesn't want that? It also lasts a long time (I've never worn makeup for 24 hours so unfortunately I can't tell you if it lasts that long, but for £4.99, again you can't go wrong.
Another quick and easy product to apply is this Bourjois blush. It supposedly adapts to it's own unique colour on your cheeks and I find that the colour it adapts to on my cheeks is a really lovely natural colour. It has a lovely powder finish when applied to the skin, meaning it isn't sticky at all, which I find most cream blushers are. It just gives you a lovely rosy glow and although it is slightly pricey, I would definitely recommend it.
As I am terrible at liquid eyeliner, I like to put some of this khol eyeliner onto a little angled brush and apply it like a gel eyeliner to my upper lash line. It's very pigmented and creamy so I just smudge it a little bit and it looks very natural and is a lot easier for me to use than a liquid eyeliner. You can also use it on your lower waterline or lash line.
I'm a complete sucker for lip products, they're my absolute favourite makeup products. I'm in love with this Soap and Glory gloss stick, as it makes your lips so glossy and moisturised, and also uses special ingredients to make your lips look fuller. I adore this colour as it's a very natural brownish pink which I think would look good with any skin tone and it's so easy to apply quickly when you're unsure of what lipstick colour you want to wear. This is also quite pricey for a drugstore product but it is amazing and comes in another 4 gorgeous shades.
Another lip product I've been loving is the new Maybelline Babylips Electro lip balm. I love babylips as they provide moisture to your lips but also add a light wash of colour which is natural and pretty. The new electro range has more neon shades which I think are beautiful and provide a bit more colour than the original ones. Again, they are so quick and easy to apply when you don't want a full lipstick one day. They also come in 3 other shades and for £2.99 you definitely can't go wrong.
