Beauty | Monthly Favourites - January

I've decided to do a monthly favourites series and do a roundup once a month of all the things I've been loving. So here's the roundup for January!

Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water
I have used the normal micellar water from Garnier for a while now, Its affordable and does exactly what you need it to and you get a lot of product for the price which is always good. I didn't really think of trying the oil one for some reason but I thought I'd give it a go because my skin can get super dry and I'm so glad I picked it up, its super cheap it smells AMAZING! I love it and its not too greasy either I feel like I have soft skin after this which I never got from the normal micellar water. 

Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
I'm obsessed with the smell of this, It smells super citrusy like orange zest, I didn't even know I liked orange scents but its such a nice smell in the morning it smells and feels zingy like it says, I use this every morning and its been a life saviour with my super dry skin lately.

MAC Lipstick in shade 'Faux'
I love the shade of this lipstick, Its been suer sunny recently - still cold but super sunny and I feel like this is such a gorgeous muted pinky nude with slightly mauve undertones its so much better than the really brown nudes I keep seeing, Its much more girly and is the perfect 'your lips but better' shade.

BareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara & Lash Domination Petite Mascara 
I looooove this mascara so much! Its one of my favourites, Definitely a Hoy Grail product and this christmas my mum bought me the little gift set which includes the lash domination mascara but also has a petite version inside, I was excited because I thought it was travel size one but the brush is actually super petite and perfect for your lower lashes and its one that doesn't transfer which I've struggled to find, I also use this for when I'm going out as a first coat and then use the normal sized mascara on top of the petite one to make my eyelashes super fluttery.

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream 
I actually got this in the LookFantastic beauty advent calendar but I am obsessed with it and will definitely purchase. I use it every morning and night and its all natural ingredients and its super hydrating for under my eyes.

Becca Highlighter in 'Pearl'
This is incredible! I recently went to london so nipped into Space NK to see what this highlighter was like as I've seen it online a lot. Its beautiful its super shimmery but it doesn't leave a line it looks as if its invisible shimmer does that even make sense? I love it so much its gorgeous.

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation
This is my all time favourite foundation ever! and I'm so so happy with it, Foundation for me is the hardest make up product to find which I love and want to use again and again I feel like they say theyre going to do a million things but often let me down, I didn't have high hopes for this because I'm not a lover of the touch éclat concealer, Its not enough coverage for me to be honest but this foundation is the perfect coverage and easily buildable, It lasts for so long and isn't really mattifying either it makes you look so healthy its my favourite make up product I've bought I think.

Lush Cosmetics Tea Tree Water
I've mentioned this before but its still a firm favourite of mine it literally cleanse you face so its pristine and gets rid of any bacteria or blemishes, Its perfect if your having a bad skin day.

Those are my favourite products that I've been using this month I think the YSL foundation and the becca highlighter were my favourite buys, The BareMinerals mascara is my favourite product in general I think Do you have any favourite products?

Beauty | YSL Touche éclat Foundation

I think I may have finally found a solid favourite foundation! I love having holy grail products that I constantly go back to but I've never been loyal to any foundation, I really struggle to find one that ticks every box - until now.
The YSL foundation has everything I want in a foundation.
I'm not overly impressed by the touch éclat concealer as its pretty sheer so I wasn't sure what to expect with the foundation.
The coverage is what makes it an instant winner for me as I'm not really into sheer foundations but it definitely has a good coverage and still leaves me with a gorgeous glow I don't even use powder to set it because I love the finish and even without setting it, It still lasts its not cakey at all either it just glides seamlessly onto the skin. 
I wear fake tan all year I use the Bondi Sands fake tan in 'Light/Medium' so I got matched with the shade 'B20 Sand' and it matches it perfectly you can't see where it begins and ends which is what every foundation should be like.
I can't fault this foundation, its more pricey than a drugstore foundation but the amount of money I've spent trying to find the right one I don't mind spending a little more if its going to do the job.
If the base looks flawless so will the rest of the makeup.

Have you tried this foundation? I seem to be pretty lucky with beauty finds lately!

Fashion | Outfit of the Day

Outfit of the Day

I thought I'd show you how I styled my new wool biker coat from misguided. I haven't got many 'smart' coats I have a couple of bombers and leather jackets or parka jackets so this one is super warm and it keeps a daytime look smart or thrown over my shoulders with a dress for date night will still look pretty and chic.
It was honestly freezing when I took these photos as you can see it was snowing and all I had on underneath this coat was checked leggings and a crop top! This coat kept me sooooooo warm even with thin layers on and this scarf is the biggest comfiest scarf ever I'm obsessed!

Coat - Missguided (Half Price!)
Turtleneck crop top - Misguided 
Oversized Scarf - Boohoo
Leggings - River Island (Last year) 
Hunter biker wellies with steel logo - Hunter

What do you think of this outfit? I love monochrome outfits the best!

Fashion | Zara Snakeskin Effect Chain Bag

This is my new baby! I thought I'd feature it on my blog because it is going to be my go to for night out. It was a gift from my boyfriend for christmas and I'm obsessed it. It's from Zara has gorgeous snakeskin effect leather flap at the front with suede interior with a dark silver chain hardware. 
This particular design is a little more towards the chanel style of bags, smart, sleek and sophisticated. This will look stunning on a cute little date night or a girls night out due to the size. Its big enough to fit the essentials but I don't really like an oversized bag if I'm going to dinner so this is perfect although it will look amazing daytime when you only need to take a few bits wherever your going.

What do you think of this bag? Don't forget you can stay up to date by following on bloglovin I post every Sunday & Wednesday.

Beauty | Perfect Lip Combo

I thought I would start the new year on the perfect lip combination! 
I am a self confessed beauty addict! My main beauty love is definitely lipstick, yes I have about 50 that some people seem to think are the same colour but believe me I can tell the difference! 
I love dark reds and berry colours the best for night time and for daytime I love a simple nude or pinky nude, which led me to this post.

It seems a bit much to have an entire post dedicated to a lip combination but I honestly think it deserves it. I know I'm not the only one that loves a nude lip or a 'your lips but better' type lip and I believe I have finally found that perfect combo.

It's MAC Cosmetics Lipliner in 'Soar'. This lipliner got soooooo popular in the last year or so and it is such a gorgeous colour for a liner but it was constantly being paired with dark lipsticks like twig which is slightly dark, However I found MACs lipstick in 'Faux' and its a gorgeous muted mauve - pink and its slightly lighter than the lipliner and slightly pinky which makes it look perfect together I sometimes dab a light layer of 'pure zen' in the middle just to add some highlight and I am so happy with this lip combo for a day to day look, wether you have barely there eyes or smokey eyes it suits both and looks great on such a range of skin tones I love it!

What lip combo do you love? Will you be trying this one out?
