My holy grail products.

These products are staples in my makeup bag. Ones that I repurchase and use on a daily basis. My favourites that never let me down. 


Too faced sweet peach pallete

Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months this palette is crazy popular. Not only are the colours gorgeous, it fricking smells amazing. Who doesn’t want to put a smelly pink eyeshadow on every morning!? Also the pay off is so good, they blend amazing and last all day. This is the first high end pallete that I can see a massive difference from high street. Total fave. 

Mac fix+

This is another one probably every one has. If not, get one. It has so many uses. My favourite is to apply shimmer eyeshadows. Also it’s great over makeup, under makeup or to make any product more pigmented. 

Maybelline lash sensational 

I literally have used this mascara for years. I can’t find a better one. It lengthens and adds volume. Plus it’s really cheap. Win. 

Becca highlighter in champagne pop

Thanks to Jacqueline Hill we all got our glow on last year. This costs a bloody fortune and I’m getting so low that I’m willing it to last. There are billions of amazing highlighters out now but I always end up reaching for this one when I want that extra something.

Collection 24 hour felt liner 

I love me a good flick. This is the only eyeliner I can use, and that doesn’t dry out. It’s super easy and so so cheap.

Urban decay all nighter foundation

This is a recent addition and the only foundation I’ve liked in a while. It’s really full coverage and lasts. I’m not 100% addicted, but I hate foundation shopping, it’s a pain trying to find my pale colour and one that doesn’t break me out, so this is staying for the time being. If you know any other ones I could try let me know!

October Favorites!


How is it November? I know everyone’s saying it but still, this year is flying by. Literally preparing myself to get the christmas tree up!

Anyway, these are the things I’ve been loving this month!

Beauty:

  • Mac Fix+

I bought this for the hype, not sure what its purpose was. But now im obsessed. My favorite thing to use it for is to intensify my eye shadows, making them slightly tacky as well so they stay on longer.

  • Smashbox fusion soft lights

This is another one that I couldn’t figure out its’ use (see a theme here). I mean in my defence, it doesn’t have a name like highlighter or face powder. I tried it as a highlight and it wasn’t as pigmented as I am used to (that champagne pop has spoiled me). I read some where people use it as a bronzer and powder, and I am in love. It sets my skin, while giving it some warmth and also giving a subtle all over shimmer. LOVE. Such an underestimated product.

  • bh Cosmetics brushes

I got this set on holiday but i’ve seen it avalible in lots of places here in the UK too. Its so cheap, contains ten brushes that vary from face to eyes. I love the foundation one, a flat top kabuki thats so soft and blends so well. They brushes are really good quality and you really get a lot for your money.

Perfume:

  • Issey Miyake L’eau D’issey

You know that perfume you’ve been after for ages, spray all over yourself every time you hit debenhams and wish you could afford. Well this is that perfume for me, and I treated myself on holiday as it was so much cheaper. Its a different quirky smell that smells different after its settled but i love it so much, my new signature scent.

Music:

  • Rockabye baby – Clean Bandit, Sean Paul and Anne Marie
  • My Way- Calvin Harris
  • Shoutout to my ex – Little Mix
  • The Greatest – Sia ft Kendrick Lamar

Others:

  • Yoga

I always used to practice yoga everyday, but with holidays and moving house and third year at uni, its took a back seat for a few months, I had a few shitty weeks with anxiety lately so I did a few yoga youtube videos and I completely fell back in love with it. I’d forgot how calm and refreshed I feel after, and how unfit I feel now haha.

  • Autumn

As much as I miss the sun and summer, I have to admit there’s something cosy about the dark nights and snuggling up with hot chocolate under a mountain of blankets. Plus all the good TV starts coming on now, hibernation it is.
