My current favourite: Beauty Products!

24 October 2014
I've decided to create several posts in the next week or so entitled "My current favourite:...." followed by different categories, be it beauty, fashion, books etc! I think it will be a great way to share things I'm loving at the moment with you all, and maybe even give you some ideas for things you may want to try!

I'm not really the sort of person to excessively use makeup, however I still find it really amazing how much it can enhance a persons natural features and I enjoy experimenting with it when I can! On a day to day basis I generally stick to a very natural - almost "make up free" - look, and then use bolder and more dramatic makeup looks for when I'm going out to events or special occasions.... I feel that doing this makes those time when you dress up and make a effort feel far more special.

At the moment, I have several products which I'd class in the category of "beauty" that I think are really lovely.... and ones I will definitely by purchasing again!

First things first; I bought the Bare Minerals"get started kit" towards the end of August and since then it has certainly proved itself as a worth foundation. I've always had problems with liquid foundations making my skin look to oily and shiny and leading to breakouts (which is never attractive), and I have never been able to find a product that sits well on my skin all day long. After recommendations from my friend, I decided to go and buy it from Debenhams! It wasn't the cheapest purchase, however I would highly recommend it and I personally feel it was worth every penny. Of course you don't have to buy the entire starter kit... I just loved all the products included and thought the combination of them together created a perfect look.

So what do you get?
- The original foundation in your chosen colour (I wear fairly light)
- Warmth all over face colour - while this may look dark in the pot, it just adds a really nice dash of colour over parts of your face (I use it where the sun would naturally hit my face)
- Original mineral veil - this is just a clear mineral powder which helps to set your foundation in place and is also great if you need to dry your face throughout the day.
- Prime time foundation primer
- Full flawless face brush - I use this to apply my foundation and the mineral veil
- Flawless application face brush - use to apply the "warmth all over"
- Maximum coverage concealer brush

As you can see, you get a lot included in the kit which is great! It gives you all the main products needed to start the change over to a more natural and skin friendly type of make up. 

Next is the fragrance "Daisy" by Marc Jacobs. I personally love Marc Jacobs fragrances and have previously had both "Lola" and "Oh Lola". After smelling this beautiful fragrance last may on my trip to Paris, I finally got it for my birthday! It's hard to describe a smell.... but this perfume is fresh, sweet and floral (without being too overpowering) and is one that can be worn day or night! 

Who doesn't love Mac lipsticks?! They go on so easily and last for hours! This is my Mac Cremsheen Lipstick in the shade modesty. This has been my favourite lip product for over a year now, due to its perfectly moisturising finish and natural colour. I can't standing using lipsticks that have a very dry finish and I find they make my lips feel completely unhydrated and don't last as long as a more creamy lipstick. If you haven't tried the Mac Cremsheen range then I definitely suggest that you go out and get yourself one to try and I'm sure you won't regret it! There are so many colours to chose from, one to suit any possible occasion.

Finally, I bought the Garnier Ultimate Blends collection of hair products a few weeks back as my hair is currently really dull and damaged! I chose to by the "nourishing repairer" products which are scented with avocado oil and shea butter (such a relaxing and indulgent smell). I have the shampoo, conditioner and 1 minute treatment in these products and I've found that they've began making my hair feel really nourished once again, and because of their wonderful scents, it feels like your using a more expensive luxurious product.... but at a fraction of the price!

So those of a few of my current favourite beauty products! There are many more I could have talked about... I didn't want to bore you all too much though! Check back soon for my of "my current favourites" posts!
